Hello blog stalkers, here’s the wedding post you’ve been waiting for since my last wedding post in June. I can guarantee you that this post was worth the wait. Once in while you meet a couple not only with great ideas but willing to put in the time and logistics to make it happen and that couple will be Oti and Ese. Oti’s and Ese’s wedding has to be one of my most covered events of last year with endless photo ops from the getting ready to when the lights were turned off at the reception.
A special thank you to team BCG for a well coordinated event. I know you might be tired of hearing this but I still believe a well planned event translates to a beautiful wedding shoot. As usual, I couldn’t have it done without my awesome second shooters – Femi and Nick.
Prep Hotel – Hotel Rouge, Washington DC. Reception- Bethesda Ballroom. Second shooter – Femi Paosin & Nick. Wedding Planning & Coordination – BCG Events. Reception Decor – BCG Events. Makeup – Shade Hair – Wunmi. Video – Femster
A last minute idea came up to do something fun and Oti and her bridesmaids rocked the idea
I’ve done this shoot with bridesmaids many times and I have to say this has to be one of my favorite. The clean white robes against the red was just perfect.
We took the first look pictures at the Carnegie Institute.
What we do now in church when there’s a little time spare
Caught Femi as he dropped the ring by mistake but he couldn’t recover fast enough
Caught Oti’s expression when she saw her decor
We planned to do a quick shoot before the doors were opened for guest – here is my fave
Oti got a bit emotional when she saw her cake
……..so she decided to do a shoot with her cake..love it!
Something in that wine glass got Ese’s attention
Nancy having little bit too much to drink I think
Oti and Ese’s crowd really came to party as you would see below. I love to shoot good parties.
Love this shot. It looks like the little girl is in trouble with her dad for getting cake
Not sure what happened after Oti took off Ese’s jacket but all I can tell is that they just had a handsome little boy a few weeks agoCongratulations Oti and Ese!
