I love engagement sessions or pre wedding sessions. How ever you want to call them. It is a time when you bond with a couple and you can guage the love they feel for each other. I shot this in Lagos and hard as it is getting to do pre wedding sessions in Lagos due to shortage of venues, we pulled this off .
Opeyemi and Adejimi were the model couple. Why? What I do is document love for posterity to witness. When a couple is in love and I can capture that on my Camera, it’s the best expression of my passion.
These two gave me everything to love; Love, Laughter, Giggles, Kisses, Beauty.

We started off at Elegushi beach and instantly you could see the love between these two pop out.
When two people love each other, you know by the way they cant help but touch themselves, the way they laugh together, the way they look into each others eyes and the way they are silent together. Opeyemi and Jimi share a lot of laughter and being around them was fun.
As evening came we did this beautiful silhouette photograph.
I caught the Ikoyi bridge at the background to bring a close to the evening. The next time we started off, we were at Opebi to shoot at this beautiful garden. As the shoot continued, slowly and surely the smiles began to creep out as these two began to enjoy each others company. Quickly it depeened into laughter and at this point Opeyemi actually laughed so hard she fell on the floor….unflatteringly. She got up and started telling us how it was Adejimi who let her fall down. That was the kind of shoot I had with these two. When I asked Opeyemi what she wanted her shoot to show, she said, Fun, Love, Friendship. I succeeded I believe. After the initial race, Opeyemi was winning and Adejimi claimed we cheated. So we made them warm up and do it all over again. Look at him winning. You are not ashamed o. This Jimi….SMH He won just by a hairs breadth though. Ope can run and she gave him a stiff competition the second time. We did not organise a new one. It was a draw and peace reigned. If you must play, learn to do it with your groom or bride, Just do it! Its benefits are much. Opeyemi and Adejimi have all the ingredients to have a marvelous marriage. They are friends, they laugh together, play together and talk to each other. Very key. We enjoyed their session.
