Have you ever seen a photo so striking that it brought tears to your eyes? For me, my tears came looking at the work of the phenomenal, great and funny Fola Adewole. I saw her work and blinked to hold back the welling emotion. I remember the very first shot I saw, a great and sassy couple on rocks at a beach, she was wearing a gorgeous blue bathing suit, he a cool pair of shorts and they were holding their initials, JB. I thought "WOW. What a cool shot. I love that, I wish I could have a photographer like that whenever I am married (insert sigh)". I then shrugged it off, no more daydreaming, I'm not yet engaged, but my clients were, I thought to myself.
I then emailed Fola asking if she traveled. I was astonished by her prompt response, her enthusiasm and her prices! I was very happy thinking to myself "Well, at least if one of my clients book her I can use her work for my own portfolio". Little did I know that six months later I would be able to book her for my very own wedding!!! I have a love affair with her artistry, her persona and her talent. To say I cannot wait to see what my pictures look like is an understatement. I honestly hope that my wedding lives up to her talent. For me Fola captures the essence of people, I feel as if I have been given a glimpse into someone's most intimate moments and yes ladies, she is booked, she is mine!!!!!
Now, let's see if you get the same emotion that I received from her pictures...
