2nd Kiss

Nope, I'm not back, I'm only putting up a notice.

I'm still taking wedding bookings!!!

I want to let you know that I am still taking wedding bookings for this year, the fact that I'm not blogging and have chosen to spend time on my thesis and shutterchance development does not mean that I'm not taking any bookings.

If you are interested in my wedding package please give me a call on 07974 070 455 and I'll see what I can arrange for you.

Oh and please don't dwell on it, I've got 5 couples already asking me about my availability for 7th July 2007 already, sadly I've been booked for that day.

In the meantime enjoy the shot of one from very good friends of mine. They have featured in this blog before in this post.

I'm happy to see something new today and it's a very lovely picture as well. Best of luck in your thesis. I'm looking forward to seeing you back.
Jide Alakija: Thanks...don't worry when I return you'll be even more happy. wink
nice one...surprised that u havent made the coloyrs stronger or gone mono...but what the hell, it works...
Jide Alakija: Sometimes you try things differently. I actually muted the colours a bit.
That is a good wedding shot Jide.
I am currently practising taking those kind of shots as I have a wedding job coming up in April. Anyways, goodluck with your studies and your hunt for wedding jobs

I really like this photo. I actually like the muted color. I feel that it draws the viewer's attention to the bride and groom. I think the angle of the photo also adds to the emotion of the moment. Weddings are a euphoric time and the slight angle accentuates that emotion (at least for me).
this is one of the reasons I would love u to shoot at my wedding. very nice
Goodluck with the thesis Jide!
i checked the directory this morning... only to find you here...again... and i thought for a moment... this guy.... can he hold back... this love affair with his camera(actually surprised you've not been here earlier)... but i know better now... it's a marketing move.
Miss your kind of inspiration here though.
Very best of luck (you'll need it) with your thesis.

Ah, now this is natural, tasteful and a little different. Much of the art of wedding photography is in anticipating a moment, a fleeting glance, a smile. If this was posed,it doesn't look it. And the colouring is spot on.
This is a lovely shot. Great color, excellent lighting and a very nice setting. I get so tired of wedding photos in halls! I like how subdued the colors are, so that nothing detracts from focusing on the couple, and yet, despite the brown tones in the photo and the fact that the couple is black, they still stand out clearly. There's a lot of skill in this.

Thank you, also, for dropping by my blog. Cheers!
This is a beautiful shot, Jide. I guess this answers my question as to whether you do your photography for work at times. Glad to see that you are making $$$ at it!
