Lola and Wale – The Street Engagement Shoot

Hello Blog stalkers! Another special blog entry today. I told you I was going to be giving you lots of sneak peeks of my couples for this year, so here’s another one. Wale Ariztos as most people know him is also a photographer in the DMV area. In a way I was hoping just be a guest at his wedding but instead he and Lola agreed I should document their special day, I felt really honored but at the same time pressured that I will be shooting a photographers wedding :) The concept behind our first shoot was just to go out and shoot in unconventional places with the their traditional attire. I know most of you would expect us to be in a private park shooting this sort but we decided to try something else. I must give kudos to Lola who was willing try crazy ideas from myself and Wale, I think she will agree with me that it’s the boldest thing she’s ever done :) Ladies and Gentlemen….Lola and Wale!

PS: Thanks to Bukky for helping out on this shoot with lights and safety in Chinatown.

Lola and Dola – A New Jersey Wedding – Ariana’s Grand

Another awesome wedding I shot April this year. I always poke fun that I can’t live in Jersey but I love going out there to shoot weddings icon smile Lola and Dola   A New Jersey Wedding   Arianas Grand This event was beautiful from the planning, to the bridal party, to the decor, to the reception party – all were just on point. Did I also mention that it rained heavily that day but that did not stop us from getting our shots. As a matter of fact the rain helped us and I will tell you why. Normally couples want to go off site to shoot and for the most part these locations might not offer much from a photography point of view. Also couples don’t know how a 2-hr window can easily used up for formal pictures and travel to the off site location. So we did our shots in church and the others in the driveway of the reception and we got just what we needed.

I was assisted by 2 awesome photogs – Jummy and Yinka, thank you!
