Kemi and Tosin!
I met Kemi and Tosin together first some 3-4months ago at the Barcelos in Isaac John, in Ikeja, Lagos. I had met Kemi before then while she worked at one of the best wedding magazine companies in Nigeria and unknown to me she had decided then I would be her wedding photographer. It was instantly obvious to me that Tosin was a calm and gentle young man who had a resilience under the surface that you need to dig deep to see. Kemi on the other had was a rocking, boiling cauldron of energy and a joy to behold.
One of my good friends and classmate had been telling me for weeks that she wanted me to meet in her words” a very special friend of her friend”. For weeks, we kept planning and scheduling but our plans to go and visit “this special friend” fell through. All the while, I kept asking her “why do you want me to meet her and what’s so special about her?” She insisted and said “meet her first and then we would talk”. Apparently the ‘friend of my friend’ had also told Kemi she wanted her to meet someone and didnt give her any more information too, making Kemi wonder who I was and what I was about. To cut a long story short, on November 24, 2007, I took the first of a million steps that would eventually lead to May 18, 2013 and visited Kemi in her room. Her warmth, laughter and her disposition endeared her to me immediately. We took a walk from her room and we both discovered that we had so many shared interests. It was almost unbelieveable that we had just met that evening. The rest they say is history. We started hanging out frequently: from Kay’s Chippy to Amphi basement to Law basement lecture theatre (Ours wasn’t Law 209 *smiles*). The phone calls and the visits became a part of my daily routine and a few months later, we started dating officially. Our journey has been full of so many ups and downs but God has been faithful to us over the years. I am so excited that I am going to be sharing the rest of my life with such a beautiful woman of God – Tosin ( How Tosin Met Kemi – KemiandTosin.com , 2013)
This was one fun filled shooting. Kemi insisted we must do this even though Tosin arrived a few hours before their wedding. She couldn’t get enough of Tosin and she kept on laughing like the new bride she is.
