Yinka is a budding photographer who wanted someone who will do justice to her wedding pictures. She went online and searched for one and found. We talked for close to a year before we met and we have gone on to become friends. Yinka is one bride I hold dear.
Bayo is not exactly a picture person. I had to look for a way to make him comfortable with the camera and eventually I made them good friends.
I enjoyed shooting this wedding. It was the first wedding in the brides family and while this was evident they were overall a beautiful family. I loved the passion with which they went about making this wedding the beautiful one it was. One thing I noticed, photography ran deep in their blood.
The set for the brides dressing up was the old airport estate in Ibadan.
We had to leave early to get to church which was about an hour away from the house. This made us practically run out of the house as we didn’t have the luxury of time due to the traffic situation in Ibadan.
I am sure this was a moment not only relished by Yinka but by her dad as well.
At the reception venue, Yinka and Bayo danced in like their lives depended on it. Accompanied by the train and friends.
It was a crowd that attended this wedding. It was a huge crowd. Yinka danced with her dad and cried? Na she didn’t cry. Or did she? 😉 then the couple danced together. I loved the passion with which these ladies went about catching the flowers. Finally Feranmi toasted to the health and wealth and joy of the newly wedded couple. I couldn’t help but smile as this young girl toasted with her bottle of pure water. If she was not able to take alcohol yet, that did deter her. From there it was all dancing and dancing and dancing.
