I had a great time hanging out with this fun family full of laughs at Confederation Park a few weeks back. The Dad was a tough nut to crack, but I got some smiles out of him too!
After Towo & Tobi’s blowout traditional Nigerian ceremony a few nights before they had another beautiful wedding on Saturday. I think my favorite part was them dancing up the aisle at the church. I had never seen this in my 13 years as a wedding photographer and I thought it was awesome! Dupe from Moevents made sure the day ran smoothly, on time and was in the background taking care of all the details.
This was my first Nigerian wedding and I loved it! The people, the clothes, the awesome headdresses, the ceremonies, the spraying money and the dancing! It was all so fun and beautiful. There was also a lot of deep meaning and sentiment to the evening. The families each prayed separately over the groom and then the bride. It was such an amazing evening and I was so happy to capture it for this couple.
This shoot was awhile back on Boxing Day and I’m finally getting around to catching up on my blog. I had fun taking some pictures of this family get together in their home. We even snuck outside for a few chilly shots as well.
