Today’s interview is with the two lovely photographers who photographed the inaugural Do What You Love retreat as well as our very own wedding! Christine and Xander Neal of navyblur (who themselves are Mr & Mrs) have an amazing knack of blending into whatever is going on so they get a lot of great shots without anyone feeling like there is a photographer in their face. They are lovely, bubbly and fun to have around, and we love their attitude and amazing creativity. Here’s their story… – Beth
Hello! We are Xander & Christine Neal, one English boy, one Irish girl, living in Northern Ireland but slowly and surely working our way around the UK and further afield to make navyblur known wherever possible. We are two photographers who absolutely love meeting new people and taking fun, beautiful photos of their faces and everything else that comes along with them. The best part is we get to become friends in the process.
Christine and Xander on their own special day
1. How are you leading a life ‘doing what you love’?
Every day, we get to work together, which we love. We get to meet new and amazing people, which we love. We get to take photos of them in places and spaces they love, which we love. We get to show people how awesome they look, which we love. We get to be a little part of some big days in people’s lives, which we love. We get to be the people to capture a whole lot of love, laughter and fun for people to keep and look back on forever, which we absolutely love. We don’t know anything else in the world we could be doing that we would love any more than being photographers.
