I am excited to post this!!
Not only because I and Ruth played a naughty one on Seun ( Seun sorry na) but because these two will pass as one of the best human beings I have had the pleasure of seeing in my time on planet earth.
Seun loves Ruth fiercely! So fiercely that he has inspired as to how to love…….Seun Loves Ruth……If you do not understand that, I doubt I can explain more than that.
Ruth and I talked on the phone for a long time before we finally set up this shoot in far away Dubai. She was determined to have pictures that capture the essence of the love she felt for Seun and vice versa.
If you did not understand when I said Seun Loves Ruth, relax! I did not understand either. I did not understand until I saw these two amazing humans.
What I have tried to do here is preserve this love for their children. I have tried to capture the strength of the emotion and feelings between these two and render it in such a way that it inspires you to love better.
We shot this for about three days or was it four, Ruth?
We started at The Souk in the Dubai Mall, the biggest mall in the world.
And somewhere in the midst of the jewelry on display, Ruth found a ring she wanted for her finger………………..Seun? He did not hesistate. Seun can fly to the heavens for this amazing lady. We took the above on the first day and went for dinner at Pad Thai before going to see the dancing fountains of the Dubai Mall dance to I Will Always Love You!
And the morning and the evening were the first day.
This was the second shoot…….
This was on the 44th Floor of a tower on the Dubai Marina and the wind was chilly. While I shook, Seun was warmed by the kiss of the lady who he loves with his whole heart.
Eventually, we strolled to the Dubai Marina to try take a private yatch for a cruise, but unfortunately for us there was bad weather. It was so windy, no one dared to set sail from the harbour.
So we took this photograph below and I love the look on the face of the man in the bicycle.
I lit the couple here with a torchlight, bought from one of the supermarkets along the dubai marina.
There is something about this picture. It says, he is mine and I am content with him for he is the best you can find.
As these two showed their love on the streets of Dubai, the Unknown in the frame walked past by and his face said it all……………..No Comments.
Seun went on to retrieve something while Ruth warmed herself to a cup of Starbucks with I and B. She received a call from Seun and the look on her face says it all. The Young Man!!!
Seun is one year older today. It is his birthday.
Happy Birthday Seun. This post was made to be a surprise. It was engineered this way by I and Ruth to show you how much she adores you. It was meant to let you know how much she appreciates the love you show to her. Keep it up! You are special. Before we left for home that night, We took this shot of A Whisper In A Starbucks Shop. And the morning and the evening was the second day.
Third day started with this game of football that Ruth was determined to win…….I will say nothing further. She won!!!!
Seun was trying, but his words were falling on deaf ears…..lol Then it was time for more outdoor pictures… and when i turned my back this happened. I really cant explain it. Seun should!
On our cruise to see the Palm Atlantis, the Burj Al Arab Ruth was wearing this beautiful hat and then……………….. ……the wind took it off and threw it into the sea. See Seun’s face……That look tells you all. He was already taking off his shirt to jump into the sea to retrieve the hat….Cough, Cough!
He did not have to after all. The lovely captain of the boat retrieved the hat for Ruth. When we finally back from our adventures on the sea, I caught the sun smiling down on this pair. Do not try this at home. I almost lost my eye taking this shot. And the morning and the evening was the third day.
Early the next morning, we woke up while men slept.
Off to the Dubai mall we went for this shoot. It was very early as the clock tells you, for in Dubai, for 8:30am is a time when people sleep after the rigours of shopping and all the other things Dubai makes you do. Seun helped Ruth tie her gele perfectly…..You do not understand still? …………….and the time had moved while we prepared Nigerian Tradition on display! And finally, the Burj Khalifa! ….and the Burj Al Arab! Seun took Ruth, B and I for a dinner at the Burj Al Arab. It was an experience. First, Seun called this great guitarist to serenade Ruth with a great song! …………………….and then he did the unthinkable He proposed to her after first giving her a bouquet of flowers. Talk about romantic! Finally we did some shots around the opulence that is the Burj Al Arab! The Palm Jumeirah in the foreground. In the Burj Al Arab! Everything you think is gold in this hotel is GOLD! and this only 7 star hotel in the world reeked of opulence! I had a great time with this couple. I can’t wait to see them again soon enough. I love you guys. Thanks for the great time and the opportunity to share in your love and be inspired.
