WOP – Best of 2013

Wow, so I’m still in shock that 2013 is over and we are practically halfway through February already. This post has been way overdue but my (2014) philosophy is better late than never! 🙂

So 2013 was my first full year of business and gosh, it was a hectic one – so much to learn not just on the photography side but primarily on the business side (who knew?!?!). However, all things said and done, it was a great year: I achieved a number of my key goals including meeting my target number of weddings and establishing myself in the local wedding industry amongst other things. I worked with some really fantastic couples and was fortunate enough to shoot weddings in 3 different countries including the UK and Zimbabwe. I am particularly proud of planning and shooting my first styled shoot, which got a fantastic response from the general public (yay!!!) and landed me my first feature on Bella Naija Weddings (double yay!!!). I worked with lots of great vendors and had my work featured on wedding blogs across Nigeria, the US and the UK, which was pretty cool. All in all, I grew as both an artist and solopreneur and I definitely feel like I started as I mean to continue, which is a great feeling.

Needless to say, none of the above would be possible without all of you – my family, my friends, my clients, my fans, my colleagues and everyone else who has encouraged and supported me over the year. Your kind words and encouragement keeps me going and I really can’t thank you enough for all your support. I feel like the community is really growing and burgeoning with some amazing talent and I hope to be able to contribute to educating and growing that talent this year by knowledge sharing through my blog so I’ll definitely keep you posted.

I have got some awesome things happening in 2014 both personally and professionally starting with turning the big 3-0 a few weeks ago, which was a fab start to the year. In the meantime, I wanted to share some of my favourite wedding and portrait images from 2013. Enjoy! 

I pray your 2014 is filled with an abundance of blessings and that which your heart most desires. Here’s to 2014 to being the best one yet! 

Ciao
Wani
