My last post was my 6-11-11 couple now here is my 9-10-11 couple. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting Yemi and Sanmi over the last few months and choosing my favorites from their shots was really very difficult, so I wouldn’t bore you with too many just my favorite 25. We shot in a couple of places including National Harbor, BWI bike trail, Greenbelt and of course downtown DC right in front of the capital, as in it gets no better that that. They had their beautiful traditional wedding yesterday and I’m looking forward to tomorrow already.
As you may have noticed we shot some of these scenes in low-light, so I want to send a special thanks to the crew(Sanmi’s brothers and bestman) who came out to assist. I couldn’t be any more thankful to these guys who came out late to assist with our shoot even at midnight…yes, we shot the capital shots close to midnight…like I would always say “anything for the shot”

Note – No photoshopping of the backgrounds in any of the shots below taken at the harbor, it was a matter of timing and exposure.
And here is a preview of their engagement book, UPS dropped this off few mins after I published this post. My pictures can’t do this book justice, you really have to hold it in hand to understand. A few people have asked why I shoot the way I do and I tell them I shoot for print. The look of these shots in print is what I look forward to.
