About a year ago, wedding vendors, Photographer Adetola @9.22photography and makeup artist Olapemi @ennies_makeover got engaged on Olapemi’s 25th birthday after they via Instagram in 2017. We featured their beautiful proposal story (HERE).
from the groom-to-be
“I met Olapemi On IG actually; I ran into her IG page May 2014 and as
this was a time I needed a friend I decided to browse through her
gallery and then I discovered she was a makeup artist and on top of that
she was in my city, Ibadan. So I copied her BBM pin and sent her a
request, that’s how became friends.
We got more closer over the months but we decided not to tell people
especially distant friends how we met as they might find it unrealistic
meeting spouses on social media and they might try and discourage either
party, we were too scared to loose what we had so we didn’t tell anyone
we met on IG not even our folks.
As Olapemi @ennies_makeover
is a make up artist and I am a photographer and we are already in a
relationship, we had no choice than to start working together; we
usually organize photo shoots, she does the make up while I do the
shooting and editing then we would post the pictures on our respective
page mentioning each other in the caption and this has fetched us a
number of jobs, As the MUA she makes over bride’s face and as the
photographer I cover the event. Our career partnership has made us best
of friends and has given our relationship a huge amount of spark as we
have a lot to talk about; from sharing ideas to gossiping and even
I was sure she is the woman of my dreams and I would never be with a
better woman I decided to take our relationship to the next level and
proposed to her on her birthday, she said yes by saying I love you and
what else does a man want to hear. This is how a make up artist got
engaged to a photographer, don’t be part of those that feel no good
relationship can come out of social media, you only have to be careful
and hope to have a bit of luck.
