A bit about us, and a bit about our wedding photography style
Nigerian Wedding Photographers?
While we like to call ourselves Nigerian wedding photographers, we work with a couple of associate photographers and assistants from different countries. We simply call ourselves Nigerian photographers because over the years, our favourite weddings seem to be the Nigerian ones, with all the amazing colours, music and dance. They are weddings we really love shooting, but of course we’ll shoot any wedding regardless of origin … even if your from Mars, I’m pretty confident we’d do an amazing job for you as well !!
Wedding Photography Styles
There are several defferent styles of wedding photography, the main ones being: Traditional, Journalistic, Fashion, and Fine Art wedding photography.
Traditional wedding photography is more formal in nature. The photographer is fully involved in directing the day. Pictures are generally static, and there are lots of portraits and posed shots.
Photojournalistic wedding photography is more editorial. The photographer tends to have very little interaction with the guests during the day. He or she allows the day to flow naturally, and then tells the story as he sees without being obtrusive. This is the so called fly-on-the wall approach.
Fashion wedding photography is more creative in its presentation. It’s normally quite common in big cities, where dramatic city backgrounds, artificial lighting, fashion poses and extensive post production give the images that slick magazine look.
Fine art wedding photography, on the other hand is more interesting in that it sort of embodies a bit of the styles above, but with added creativity. They tend to have a warm airy and artistic finish. Ordinary scenes and images tend to look extraordinarily beautiful here.
While we are primarily wedding photojournalists, we are very comfortable with all styles and tend to add a bit of each to our wedding photography. We will get a bit traditional if you need formal portraits, we’ll also do some fashion for some of your portraits. With your details, we’ll get artsy, and then generally be photojournalists for most of the day. However we are heavily biased towards fine art and photojournalism, that’s why we prefer to call ourselves fine art wedding photojournalists.
