Maggie + Bryce | Destination Wedding Photographer | Lagos, Algarve


Maggie is a hugger. I need to start this with that note because that is something about her personality that I just love beyond words.

On the morning before her wedding day I got a call from Maggie. As I was just getting ready to take a tour around Lagos before going out to finally meet one of the most special couples ever. I was excited to say the least. Maggie and I were exchanging e-mails for months, even though we were incredibly busy, and I just knew their day would be a different day. And as I was getting ready for just that when I heard my phone calling from the other side of the hotel room. I rushed to answer and after a few signal problems we finally made contact. Except it wasn’t Maggie on the other side, it was Bryce. Which was completely alright: “Maggie wanted to be the one talking to you but she has no voice.” And that was not so fun. Not so fun because she was scared she would have to cope not having her voice back on her wedding day, but even though she didn’t, not completely, this day was absolutely magical, and nothing got in the way of them having a blast, which was their goal from day one. 

Maggie and Bryce are one of the most special couples I probably have ever worked with. They are honest and straightforward. They are completely at ease just throwing who they are at whoever, whenever. And they are so kind that it just felt like home with them. They came all the way from New York city to get married in their beloved Lagos where they met 9 years ago, and which is like home for them. Neither of their friends or family had ever been to Lagos, so they just wanted to bring them here and throw them a party. Which made this day a completely and honestly magical one. Maggie made all makeup and hair herself and her stunning, stunning gown as well as the bridesmaids skirts were custom made specially for her by Johanna Johnson. 

Although their wedding was almost 2 years ago now this is a day still very close to my heart. I will never forget the hug they gave me the very first day we met. I grew very, very fond of Maggie and her brave spirit and I grew to love her a whole lot. These two are just truly meant to live absolutely incredible adventures together, just like they did up until now. 

I am truly so very honoured for this wedding was featured on HARPER'S BAZAAR and it was something that already made my year. These two deserve it. 

All weddings should have the essence Maggie and Bryce's had.

In the end it was a relaxed, yet emotion filled day which ended HARD on the dance-floor until late (early) hours and I just didn’t want to leave. See why.
