A DAY WITH TOJU FOYEH August 24, 2016 – Posted in: Fashion

“Selecting a wedding dress is more than just a fitting, it is a process, a memory in the making” – Olivelli Cape Town

It’s not often that a shoot makes me so emotional. I absolutely loved everything about this shoot. It took me to a different place and time. It made me want to run out, meet someone, fall in love and get married just so i could wear one of these beautiful dresses and walk down the aisle towards love and forever.

This shoot gave me hope. Hope that maybe one day i would find love that lasts, i would wake up each day elated knowing that i was truly loved and accepted as i was. Hope that one day i would find someone that understands that my love is intense, my love is crazy beautiful, my love is intentional, my love is unconditional, my love is assertive, my love is unalterable and understanding all this, chooses to accept my love. It made me want to get married a bunch of times to the same person just so i could have framed photos of all the looks with the love of my life and look at it in decades to come and realize that time really did stand still for us.

Because this shoot gave me hope for sustainable love, i’m going to attach a quote of love to each look.
