Emem and Segun: Love Days In Lagos

This is one beautiful pre wedding/engagement session I shot in Nigeria and have teased you all with on my Facebook page. Here you will see the entire session that took about three days to complete.

The locations where some exotic locations in Banana Island, and the Ikoyi Waterfront.

I get a lot of questions from Professional Wedding Photographers about my shoots so i am going to let it out here.  I shot much of this with available light, and where I needed to light up, I used a single Canon 580 EX II Speedlight  triggered off a Canon 5D Mk II Camera. In some of the night scenes where i need a continuous light source to help the 5D Mk II Focusing system, I used the Ice Light designed by Jerry Ghionis and produced by Westcott. The Sunset scene i shot using the flash light to illuminate the foreground and I used the sun as a backlight ( no artificial backlight was used).

I have tried to draw out the essence of this couple in this shoot. Emem and Segun are in love. They are playful, naughty, mischievious, passionate and romantic. Those words  guided me as I photographed them. Every photograph has been taken to reflect their personality.

Seat back and enjoy and watch out for the huge hound that i incorporated into this shoot.




It is a long post, but it was worth watching right?

We do a lot of engagement sessions for couples and the difference between one or the other is the amount of time the couple decides to dedicate to the creation of the photographs. Emem and Segun where in love with the Camera and gave their time for this shoot.

Their wedding pictures will be up here soon and while i have shot a lot of weddings i must tell you that theirs is the best wedding i have attended. Wait for it!
