James and Ruth

 

If you missed the prewed by this fire couple,then have a look here. James and Ruth wedding took place at Carlton House, a Neoclassical mansion built in the 17th century; A venue which befitted this stylish couple. Ruth wore a beautiful Satin style dress whiles James complimented his bride with a dapper customised white suit. I deeply enjoyed shooting and being part of their wedding as; the love from this couple and all their friends oozed from every part of the day.

Tunji and Abbie

Tunji and Abbie’s union was one wedding i was happy to have documented. it is said that ” Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength and courage” and that was what i observed between this couple. The ceremony took place at their local church which was followed by a gorgeous party at the Prince and Princess Garden. During the reception, i observed both Tunji and Abbie coming out of their shell. Tunji is a party guy or at least all his friends and Abi’s 12 bridesmaids enhanced the party atmosphere. Some weddings just have dancefloors and some weddings just turn into full-blown raves that leave great memories.  We had such a great time with them and their families.

Dereck and Samantha

 

Dereck and Samantha are one of the cutest (and coolest) couples I’ve ever met. Their love story started as 21st Century as it can get…. they met on Facebook! After 4 years together this lovely pair has been blessed with cute baby boy. I’m really happy that we got a chance to hang out with them and shoot their engagement sessiona and their wedding later this year.

Pedro and Bridget

 

I spoke to Bridget about a year before her wedding where we discussed in great details. Oddly enough, I didn’t hear from her again until 6 weeks before her wedding. She drafted me in as she didn’t feel right letting anyone else cover the wedding. Bridget and Pedro are the kinda couple that have been married but just haven’t made it official yet. None the less, we picked up pace. This was one of my most exciting weddings I’ve been to that year. Mixing Ghanaian with Angolan culture I tasted some great food and the dance floor stayed packed as the DJ worked effortlessly to keep everyone happy.

5 Tips from a wedding photographer

Its not actually the easiest thing to write a blog and after trying a few times now i have a new found respect for anyone who is able to write to such a degree to describe anything. You must have passion

If you can get a wedding planner or at least a on the day co-ordinator

Having a wedding is more than just eating some chicken and rice and having a party in fact its probably the only time is life someone will have such a coordinated event

If possible get the biggest room in the hotel.

As a photographer my job is as to document your day and capture story of your wedding day. With a larger room it allows up for more possiblity to do. About 90% of weddings begin in hotel rooms. Most rooms are fine with just two people but the moment you have an MUA, your maid of honor friend, videographer it all becomes very tight. Although I can and always work around these circumstances,3,5,7 people in the room you realise it becomes very tight. If you have a more room

It also allows for better portrait shots before you leave the hotel.

Do a trial if with your MUA

Integer dapibus, tellus non sagittis maximus, massa elit aliquet odio, at euismod nisl sem nec erat. Maecenas mattis aliquam interdum. Aliquam facilisis quis libero quis facilisis. Aliquam tempor augue ac pretium feugiat. Nullam egestas mi vel leo semper maximus. Proin orci nisl, pharetra a ex eget, pulvinar imperdiet magna. Praesent feugiat mauris eu felis facilisis, eget ultricies nunc bibendum. Donec sed elit ac dui laoreet ultrices nec ac nibh. Suspendisse potenti. Aliquam ut interdum ex. Nam pellentesque varius ornare. Morbi non finibus tortor.

Get your crew in check

Suspendisse suscipit quam sem, ac lacinia neque tempus porttitor. Sed pretium erat leo, non fringilla justo gravida at. Etiam sagittis sapien massa, id rhoncus ex consequat bibendum. Aliquam interdum nisi ac fringilla tincidunt. Nam luctus felis ac vestibulum consectetur. Ut consectetur, sem at commodo dapibus, purus nibh consequat lorem, et consequat erat massa a augue. Nullam vel velit gravida, aliquet odio sed, sollicitudin nulla. Duis facilisis vehicula ante et sollicitudin. Nullam ut elementum massa, quis rutrum eros. Vestibulum ac odio sollicitudin, rutrum nisl at, consectetur tortor. Curabitur euismod, mi a dapibus condimentum, quam sem laoreet libero, in condimentum tortor quam at justo.

 

Have a good time

Theo and Freda

 

Every once in a while you meet a client who wants to take pictures but doesn’t exactly what they want. Theo was the best man at a wedding we shot earlier that year and gave one of the funniest speeches. He initially approached me to do a family shoot for his girlfriend who had flown from Australia with their lovely 1-year-old baby girl but after a few photos, I could see this couple was here for more than just the baby. Next minute Theo pulled me aside and told me he was going to propose to his girlfriend. With some quick thinking, I played along and moved the shoot along so we could eventually find the perfect spot for him to propose. A great ending to a shoot with a very loving warm couple.

Ovie and Kemi

 

Ovie and Kemi were actually stepping through London on holiday when they decided to contact me to shoot the pre-wedding session. Kemi set the tone for the shoot with multiple outfits and Ovie followed suit. They really went all out to make sure their photos looked great and good dose of enthusiasm. They eventually got married in big style Nigeria later that year.
