I got to meet this couple for the first time today and we had this engagement session today.
It was a bit “fast” for me but the lighting was perfect and I had all my gear in my car from a photo assignment I did a day before.
While this photo session took place in Lagos, Nigeria, both the bride and groom are based in Delta State Nigeria where the wedding proper will be taking place.
Osan and Misan as you will see were totally not camera shy, we tried to keep everything clean and simple.
I personally think engagement shoots are very important because it allows for some bonding between the photographer and the couple, it would have been totally awkward getting to meet the couple on the wedding day proper. Imagine me walking over to them to introduce myself as the “official” wedding photographer of the day. It really would be strange, they wouldn’t really know what to expect, the chemistry required wouldn’t exist as well.
Today’s photo session was fun, we laughed alot and got to know each other a whole lot better, (Like i got to find out Osan was actually Misan’s “school father” back in the days, imagine how much laugh we got out of that )I left the session feeling like I had known them for ages.
Below are pictures from the session.
