Have you ever pass-by someone and just know in your heart that you were meant to meet? It happened to me last week. That's how I met Dania and Ivo. It was a Friday afternoon, they caught my eyes just walking by, so in love. Dania has this stride to her walk like a supermodel. So fierce. She was wearing a black leather jacket with a crop top, mini skirt, and heels. Ivo was in jeans and a t-shirt. They looked like they've just stepped out of a fashion magazine. Her hair was just glorious! So amazing. As I watched them pass by, a part of me wanted to just run to them and say hi. I hesitated because well, I didn't want to come off as weird. But then if I didn't say something I probably was never going to meet them again. Just be brave and say hi. Deep breath... So, within a split of a second, I decided to walk up to them and introduced myself. I stumbled for words and simple said, “Hi please don't think I'm weird or anything but I'm actually a photographer.” Of all the English words... I was only able to gather those. I started talking to them and we exchanged our Instagram. Turns out they were actually looking for a photographer, too. Big win!
We talked and I'm just so in love with them. Their beautiful English accent and their gentle demeanor despite being so incredibly gorgeous had me melting. Originally from Angola, they are both studying to become geoscientists. I think they need to become the next top models instead, don't you think?
Over the weekend we had our shoot and I am so in love and so inspired. They don't know it yet but so many photographers all around the world are so in love with them right now, too... just as I am. Xo.
