Sparks Fly | Wedding Photos | Aleks+Angelika
May 10, 2017 by Afrik Armando in Stories, wedding 0 Comments

. “Maybe this was a mistake” I thought to myself, as I walked along the dock I could see nothing but the darkness of night. The trees were silent and the birds had all taken shelter. It was cold, lonely and picth black. How could a day so filled with wonder and love, end in such an unpleasant manner. It was an honor working with these two. It’s always exciting to work with those who trust you and let you take creative control. Throughout her wedding day, Angelika maintained a spirit of serenity. Whenever something went wrong or not as planned she’d just smile. All that mattered to her was the love of her life, the one with whom her heart would remain knitted to forever. Nevertheless, when we got to Penns landing, it seemed as though this creative ship I’d taken control of was about to crash. It was the photo location we had picked and the lighting was no bueno, it was cold and the only signs of life were the boats being tossed to and fro by the river waves. My lizard brain was panicking and my fingers were frozen. It was time to take photos and […]

May 3, 2017 by Afrik Armando in Family, Stories 1 Comment

How far would you go in pursuit of your dreams?.  We’ve all got ambitions, desires, and dreams but like someone rightly said: ” A dream without a plan or corresponding action, is but a mere wish.” Dima’s dreams have not only made him move from a distant country to the United States, but they’ve also given him the stamina to withstand all the odds and oppositions he encounters. Beyond the facade of his appearance, there’s a story of courage and endurance, for this reason, I felt honored to document the sprouting of his ambitions. And for you my reader, don’t wait, the best time to start pursuing your dreams is now. DimaBaltimore, MD

Paris didn’t give me a love story.
April 19, 2017 by Afrik Armando in Stories 4 Comments

I’m currently the groomsman for two of my closest friends, I’ve been invited to quite a few weddings and I’m documenting the stories of a handful of beautiful lovers. And no, this isn’t a lifelong experience, it’s all happening this summer. I think I’m the only single person among my close friends, as though third wheeling wasn’t enough 3 years ago, now I have to answer questions as to when I’m getting married & why I’m still single. So I finally land in Paris and mind you I grew up watching French Love cinema (I can explain some other day), expectations were high and I couldn’t help but wonder if I’d be painting or drawing any French girls (of course with their clothes on). Maybe the next morning, I’d be bringing someone French toast in bed after a good nights rest (don’t worry I’m waiting till marriage). Yes, all those years of studying French would go beyond using “ qui, qui” with my friends. And most importantly, I’d get to show off my French cuisine skills (omelettes count guys). I mean look at all these apartments, look at all these people, there’s got to be a love story in the making. Nevertheless, cupid was on vacation, I had three hours to explore the city […]
