As a wedding photographer in Lagos, I often get asked to recommend vendors especially for my out of town brides. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some really talented individuals on my various weddings, so I really wanted to put together some form of styled shoot that would showcase some of the international level talent we have right here in Lagos. I also haven’t really seen anyone else locally attempt a shoot with a focus on event / decor design, so this was a great opportunity to really challenge myself to try something new and step out of my comfort zone. The idea behind this shoot is really to showcase some of the amazing talent the wedding industry has locally so brides don’t feel like they always have to go abroad or fly people in to get international standard service or products and I feel really proud of what we were able to put together in such a short time.
Keeping with the glamorous theme of the season, we bring you this gorgeous styled shoot by Nigerian based Photographer Wani Olatunde. I keep telling brides you can never go wrong with a pink and gold palette. There’s a classic elegance to it which makes it work for a host of themes. So whether it’s a vintage bohemian vibe you’re looking for or an elegant ballroom with lots of glam, this shoot will inspire you. Enjoy!
