B/W wedding moments #3

This is one that was taken on at the same wedding as this one and this one. In fact it's during the same moment as this one. I really haven't much to say here. You know the story behind it. There was a lot of chaos as she was coming into the church. So many people around her that her photographer had to climb up a stool to catch the moment. Such is the chaos we endure in Nigerian weddings.We had a great day though.

Get your tickets now!!!
Tickets on sale here

My very good friend BolanleDinah has been working very hard on an Art exhibition for charity. She approached me to contribute some of my works for auction along with some other artists. The title of the exhibition is "Words are not enough" and you can see more details of it here. I strongly urge you all to come as you'll not only get a chance to see good work in 3D but also a chance to give to charity. Tickets are on sale on the website through the "buy now" link at the top.

Gorgeous; every bride needs one of these. Jide, as usual, you shot a powerful moment and displayed it with utmost excellence
Great ! Like very much this smooth atmosphere !
very very soft...really like the halo-ish glow of the veil...
You always manage to bring out that little something extra from shots like this. I think perhaps we need to have something of a little artistic talent to see and shoot an image like you have and I for one wish I had that in me.
The links to the other photos didn't work for me.

This one is nice, soft an feminine, but I'm not too sure about the placement of her hand on her face, particularly her thumb by her nose.
Beautiful lighting

Checking up on your EXIF info, I was just going to ask, how you managed to have this quite sharp without any kind of support? I try shots with these kind of settings, and technically I never like the results (esp. in print). keep up the good work.
Jide Alakija: Support? Who said I had no Support? I used the wall for support.
