Photographing the Nigerian wedding of Tara and Tunde was one of my peak moments of 2011. Tara and myself met via the Internet early in the year and we became quite friendly very quickly. Apparently she was about to have another photographer imposed on her, but knowing what she wanted she wasn’t going to have any of that, enter Xsightn.
How would i describe Tara ?
FIrst and foremost she was the first bride i got to shoot with a low hair cut, I loved that about her and was so very eager to shoot her. Tara is fun, she has an amazing sense of humour and she was just a joy to work with always ready to play infront of the camera.
So here’s a bit of history on how the couple met.
Tara left Nigerian around 2001 and was based in the United Kingdom till 2008 when she returned for her NYSC , it was during her service year that she met Tunde Ajibulu, Tunde was one of her bosses, not a direct boss but a boss nonetheless. They dated for about 2 years and finally got married December 2010. Tara is currently based in Cameroon where she works in oil sector while Tunde works in Lagos as a tax consultant. Thats the full story in 2 lines ( Lol !!! trust Xsightn to keep it short and simple)
I finally got to meet both the bride and groom a few days to the wedding and I was truly glad I was chosen to shoot the wedding of this truly beautiful people.
I was contracted to shoot both the traditional wedding ceremony and the white wedding proper. The white wedding proper took place at the prestigious Eko Hotel and Suites which is one of the most beautiful venues to shoot wedding receptions in Nigeria( Ask any wedding photographer in Nigeria). The decoration and ambiance of the whole event was a marvel to behold.
While I will be uploading pictures from both the traditional and white wedding in my next blog posts, I thought I do something a bit different this time around to symbolize this truly gorgeous couple.
Below is a short wedding photography slideshow I quickly put together to capture their special day, I hope you all like it.
To Mr and Mrs Ajibulu, here’s to lots of babies, a happy married life and all the blessings your hearts desires.
