I’ve been working on some very interesting engagement shoots lately. Meet Shola and Taiwo who will be tying the knot next month. We decided to go for this old Hollywood theme. I don’t think I could have asked for any better couple to role play this concept. Shot after shot they nailed the mood and concept. Taiwo played a rich Hollywood star who met this beautiful lady. And of course he spent some time trying to let this fine lady know that he’s the right one for her, did she agree? Well lets see.
Technical bits - shot this with Canon 5D Mark II, 85mm 1.8, 85mm 1.2 and 35mm 1.4. Placed my subjects in uneven shadowed areas to create some uneven lighting in some shots and sometimes with a little fill flash so this gave me that old school feel the the shots.
Feel free to check out their website at the end of the posting.

3. Mr Taiwo doing his thing….what do you think he was saying to her?
6. He came well prepared with records from 2 icons and yes Shola loves Luther.
