Laid-Back Lagos Engagement Shoot

Kunbi O / Tuesday April 8, 2014
Ada and Obi are two people dear to my heart. The adorable duo said “I do” last summer in Lagos, Nigeria and we [of course] will be sharing the beauty with you in a couple of weeks. For their engagement shoot, the couple went for a laid back session which was EXACTLY what I expected from them. I make fun of them that they are two boring old people who found their match in each other but the truth is they’re just cool, laid-back folks who enjoy the company of each other over loud parties and needless fluff. I love how these pictures by Kele Akaniro capture the chemistry and love these two have between them.

From the Bride:

My fiancé (now husband) and I are two of the most laid-back people in the world. We decided to keep things true to form with a simple session at home- which was completely in our comfort zone. Actually, we stepped out a little bit by attempting a fun underwater shoot in the pool (yay!). Unfortunately the pool shoot didn’t work out as we ignored one important factor- we can’t swim! We had the ugliest most unrelaxed expressions and our photographer couldn’t do much as we kept coming up for air too quickly so we gave up on that.

Once we returned to shooting on “land”, everything was great and we were completely comfortable. We wanted classic pictures we could look back on forever and smile. We couldn’t be more pleased.
