Ife + Sunmade 2014: Lighting Up Osogbo

It is usually the ladies that press my case till they get me as their photographer, here Dapo was the one on my case. He did not relent one bit.

In the middle of last year, Dapo sent me a mail to enquire about my services. After much back and forth, he booked for his day and the journey of our friendship began. Of course i had to meet Tope and after I did, the reason the bug had bitten Dapo was clear….That smile, that beautiful spirit of hers was contagious and when you are with her you don’t want to leave.

Through the months we had course to talk about their plans and adjust them accordingly to help this couple achieve the fairy tale they wanted. From the moment we did their pre wedding session in Lagos i knew i had a fun couple.

So on this beautiful sunny morning in the ancient town of Osogbo, we were privileged to shoot a wedding between two love birds, both of whom sang the same tune.

I present to you as the  shiny example of love, our very own Dapo and Tope……


Tope and Dapo’s accessories were carefully picked by them both.

A man who loves a woman goes out of his way to buy a ring that will make her fall in love again. These rings are did their job.   Dapo-and-Tope-by-Akara-Ogheneworo,-Top-Nigerian-Wedding-Photographer-003-(Side-3)Tope’s bridesmaids shoes were so eager to do their part they ran downstairs leaving the brides maids behind. They had to be shooed back upstairs.
