Hello friends! Thank you for dropping by. Excited to share Ann and Emmanuel’s engagement shoot today! When Ann told me about her idea for her engagement shoot i was stoked about the opportunity.  I love it when couples incorporate important aspects of their life into an engagement shoot. We (and the dog 🙂 ) had so much fun at the Atlanta Silverbacks Stadium & Grand Hyatt Buckhead . Can’t wait to celebrate with this amazing couple next month. Check out their story and images below. Enjoy!

How they met:

Emmanuel and I met at Jubilee Christian Church International during my high school senior year in 2007 and we would say hi to each other at church in passing and had several mutual friends. In November 2014, I went to Nigeria to visit my grandmother and family and was discouraged from going by myself from so many people. I prayed to God for safe journey mercies and if I made it to Nigeria nad back to the U.S. safely, I will give a testimony. When I got back from Nigeria safe and sound, I gave a testimony at church about my trip. After church service, Emmanuel approached me and told me he heard my testimony and asked about my trip to Nigeria. I told him about my trip and we had a great conversation. Later that week, he asked me for my number on Facebook. From then on we got to know each other better.
About the proposal:
Emmanuel and I went ring shopping in November 2016, we designed and picked out a ring together. Emmanuel original plan was to propose to me on my graduation day December 14,2016. He had the jewelry store call me and convinced me that I wouldn’t be able to get my ring, which Emmanuel was the master mind behind. I was stressing about it and Emmanuel didn’t want me to stress since I was approaching my final exam.So on December 3,2016, Emmanuel prepared a nice delicious meal after I had a rough shift at work and proposed to me with the ring of my dreams, which earlier he had me under the impression I was not getting and I cried and said YES! I thank God for blessing me with Emmanuel, he truly is my other half that I cannot live without and look forward to our happily ever after.

Chiamaka + Ifeanyi Annapolis Maryland Wedding | St. Anne's Church | Martin’s Crosswinds | Fotos by Fola

 

Hello friends! TGIF!! Thank you so much for dropping by. Early Last year i had the opportunity to travel to Annapolis Maryland to photograph the wedding of Chiamaka and Ifeanyi. This was one of my favorite weddings of the year. I had a blast covering every aspect of the wedding. I loved the spirit of the bride, groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents, guests and the vendors i worked with. I pretty much enjoyed it all which is awesome.  This wedding was featured on Borrowed and Blue and on Washingtonian Wedding blog! I actually shot Chiamaka and Ifeanyi’s Traditional wedding the previous year which was an amazing event so i knew their wedding would be fun. I am so happy Chiamaka and Ifeanyi trusted me to capture their special day. It was definitely an honor. Congrats guys. I wish you both a blessed and happy married life! The ceremony took place at St. Anne’s Church and reception at Martin’s Crosswinds . Check out some images from the day!

 

How it all started

It wasn’t until attending the same convention for Nigerian young professionals that Chi-Chi and Ifeanyi officially met. After being introduced by mutual friends who had met at the first gathering, Chi-Chi and Ifeanyi quickly hit it off, ditching the conference to sit by the pool to chat all night long.
A year and a half later, Ifeanyi, knowing Chi-Chi is a fan of waterfalls, invited her to go to the National Botanical Garden. While Chi-Chi was distracted by the garden’s petite waterfall, Ifeanyi asked someone to take their picture. As the camera snapped away, Ifeanyi reached into his pocket to pull out a ring. He got down on one knee, but Chi-Chi was so stunned that it took an onlooker shouting, “Say yes!” to get a response out of her.

Biltmore Ballrooms Wedding | fotos by Fola

Hello friends. I truly appreciate you visiting the blog today. It was just like yesterday when i flew to Houston to shoot dami and toyosi’s engagement session  which was also featured on essence! It was the first time i met them both so we basically got to know more about each other as the shoot progressed. It rained on the first day but we still had a great time. I remembered thinking how they did not allow the bad weather affect their mood which was great. The weather was perfect on day 2 of the shoot! After the shoot i had a feeling their wedding would be laid back, fun and amazing! Dami and Toyosi have really cool laid back personalities which made the wedding was stress free. When it was time to have fun the sure knew how to turn it up a notch! 🙂 . Definitely one of my fav weddings in 2015. Congrats to Dami & Toyosi. I wish you both a blessed and happy married life!! The wedding took place at the beautiful Biltmore Ballroom! Check out some images from the day!
