Lape + Paschal Engagement Session | Lagos Wedding Photographer
Lape contacted me a few months ago that she’d love what we do and will love me to capture her wedding ceremonies.
I was beyond touched. Her Event Coordinator contacted me right after and we sealed the deal.
Fast forwarded to when I met the two of them at their Engagement Session.
They are both cool and down to earth couple. Lape’s shy demeanor around Paschal with her smiles that could melt any man’s heart and Paschal’s pure admiration of her is simply out of this world. Their chemistry is beyond perfect.
I absolutely enjoyed capturing the first aspect of their lives together. Looking forward to their wedding in a couple of days.
They shared their story with me below. Enjoy and do remember to leave them some love 🙂
How We Met
Paschal and I work together. So I guess you could call ours an office romance. The relationship was a bit of a surprise. At least, it was to me because we had worked together for years when something changed and it became clear that Paschal fancied me.
It felt a bit odd at first. How do you go from being colleagues to being more than friends? Nothing prepares you for a situation like that so I had to take each stage of the relationship as it came hoping that each step I took was the right one. I’m not going to lie. There was no big proposal moment. Paschal just kept saying ‘I want to marry you. I want to marry you.’ Eventually, I got tired of him repeating himself and said ‘yes.’ 😉
I think everyone was shocked when we said we were getting married, but over time, they realized it was exactly the sort of thing to expect from us. Gradually, they came to love our story and be happy for us. Like Shakespeare said, ‘The course of true love never did run smooth’ but I’m glad we got here in the end 🙂
Lape and I met more than 7 years ago when she joined the creative unit of the ad agency where I work. Within months I found that she was a ready source of solutions whenever I was bereft of ideas or wasn’t quite sure about the meaning of a word, or any one of the numerous problems we creatives face in the course of our work.
So I guess it was only natural that I also turned to her when my marriage ended, and I needed a true friend, someone I could talk to, someone who really knew me and would tell it as it is, someone who wouldn’t judge. I’m glad that I did.
Lape has been a very strong shoulder and a firm hand for those moments (and there have been many of them) when I felt like I couldn’t carry on. She has been my friend, my companion, my confidant, my muse, my partner in thrilling, local as well as continent-crossing adventures. Now, I’m happy she’s also going to be my wife.
