Waruisapix Affair||Tina weds Steve

This is personal wedding blogpost. Today i blog with my heart. I now get it when my clients have a difficult time choosing what images they would prefer printed by being spoilt for choice. We had planned for quite a simple wedding and loved the outcome. I am a wedding photographer and Tina is a geologist so striking a balance would have been tricky but it seems like in the end I dominated the theme cause of my love for vintage VWs which despite all odds I’ve driven daily for the last 9 years across the country and continent.

God has been faithful to Tina and I. We dated for 7 years, 8 months and 10-01-2015 will always be special to us. You see Tina is the complete package, exactly what every man wishes for and often I find myself puzzled at why she agreed to marry me. see, its easy to make her laugh. Her smile dazzles the room. She saw the strengths in me way before anybody else did and has always pushed me towards my optimum. She’s sharp, intuitive, trendy and fun to hang out with and I love her to death. First time I saw her I thought to myself I should marry her….

One day I was working at the airport…
