WHEN he was at school in Warrnambool, Eric Ronald hoped to one day visit Egypt, but he never imagined he’d be paid to do so.
Ronald is now a wedding photographer based in Melbourne and ever since a photo who took for a couple in New Zealand went viral in 2014, he’s been hired to snap weddings in Thailand, Italy, and recently in Egypt.
“It was a dream of mine to go to Egypt,” he said.
“I remember doing school project on ancient Egypt and then there I was doing what I love. It was a ‘pinch yourself’ moment.”
Joined by his partner and fellow photographer Katie Harmsworth, they spent a couple of days snapping the happy couple Susi and Omar.
Ronald has been booked next year to photograph weddings in India and Sri Lanka.
