Nigeria Wedding Photographer || Bright & Elsie White Wedding


Given my hiatus in 2011, I have a backlog of images shot in late 2010 that I’ve been wanting to share. I was a little hesitant given the amount of time that has passed and especially given that this particular wedding was a celebrity wedding with widespread coverage. However, my philosophy is that beautiful images can stand the test of time, which is what I aim for when creating wedding albums, and I hope you will agree too. 

So, here we go...I always jump at the chance to shoot with rockstar photographer, Jide Alakija, for a number of obvious reasons but mainly because he is a generous mentor who is always more than willing to help up and coming photographers such as myself improve their craft. So when Jide asked if I wanted to shoot Bright & Elsie's wedding with himself and Tunde Owolabi, it was a no-brainer. Although, it wasn't until I saw Bright that I realised he was the one and only Basketmouth.
For my non-Nigerian audience, I should mention that Bright aka Basketmouth is the top comedian in Nigeria – he has been in the biz (as "they" say) for a long time now and is pretty freaking hilarious. You can find Jide’s original blog post of the wedding here
It was a beautiful wedding and I confess now, my camera was drawn to Elsie as she was an absolute dream to shoot - it's like she couldn't take a bad picture. Here are a few (ok, a lot) of my favourite images from the day. Would really love to hear what you guys think - so please feel free to comment below. 
Have a fab week.

    His bride is just fabulous looking! How can a person look so flawless at every angle. Lol... I love this! She's gorgeous!!

    You photography skill - LOVE!

    P.S: Did you know that your blog makes people type the captcha words every time they comment? Lol.. I hate those captchas and I have hard time figuring out the words, so if you can please take it off, it'll make commenting easier. If you check under "comment settings" on your blogger dashboard, you'll see how to take it off. 🙂

    1. Thanks Lizzy. It was a beautiful wedding and the camera does definitely love Elsie - a truly beautiful bride. I loved shooting the wedding.

      Aah - thanks for the tip. Captcha is totally annoying and half the time, I can't make out the words either. Turned it off now.

      Have a fab week 🙂
