Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars 2018

It’s not often that we’re at a loss for words but it’s a tough gig trying to articulate the realisation that we’ve just been named as one of Rangefinders 30 rising stars of 2018!!! Which is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the industry.

I think our initial response when we received the email was that it was a prank. Followed by a quivering gasp of bewilderment in the form of an unabbreviated ‘WTF?’ (An accurate description) To our peers who nominated us. To the judges that selected us. And most importantly to you couples whose wedding experiences in Fiji and abroad got us here in the 1st place. All we can say (right now) is thank you for making this a reality.

Cheers #30risingstars

 

Our Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars 2018 Magazine Feature:

Husband and wife Ropate Kama and Gitte Meeussen are from totally different backgrounds.  He’s from Fiji and she’s from Belgium. So they are naturally intrigued and fascinated by the constructs and varieties that make up different cultures. “Especially when it comes to weddings, as these cultural traditions tend to be more magnified and intricately displayed.”  
Luckily Fijian weddings are filled with many varying rituals, costumes and ceremonial exchanges, lasting over several days.  Aside from that, they are innately drawn to the rugged, raw, untouched landscapes of Fiji and countries that they travel to for destination weddings and elopements. They find great satisfaction in connecting couples to these spaces to complete the experience.
For extra pizzazz, their DJI Mavic Pro drone gets used extensively for portrait sessions to show off the beauty and splendour of the landscapes they shoot in.
