A Photographer’s delight!
Wedding photographer, Kevin Obosi recently unveiled one of his latest prewedding documentaries, enjoy!
How do I begin to tell the story of Bolu and Tosin? Words will fail me I swear. Trust me on that. Yeah. I have written the story of a lot of couples and done it perfectly well but these two are beyond description, wordwise. That is why I am going to show you the love they share photographically.
Love is a living thing. Love is the reason for existence. When it finds you, you live more fruitfully.
Bolu and Tosin’s shoot was planned months before on whatsapp and on the phone. It was planned when we were considering going all the way to Greece with its ancient monuments to create the story of a love that will live in the hearts of men forever. The Odyssey was never undertaken though and so we settled for Tales by moonlight in Lagos to fashion out this love story.
It began in an evening at about 7pm when we had lost all the light of day, beside the rolling waves of the Atlantic on the Lagos coastline. It was in that time, I photographed this two for for the first time, for their pre wedding session.
As they watched the distant berthed ships, I watched both of them and knew I had found gold in this couple. Why do I say so? Nothing is more beautiful to watch than two souls who love themselves.
Finally we lost all the light we could muster for the day and had to wait for the next day to come before we started this shoot again.
If I had thought the last days romantic displays was a fluke, Tosin proved to me that not only was it a norm, his very DNA radiated romance and that he loved Bolu with every bit of that double helix.
These two are perfect! I keep saying that and I can’t stop saying it because the truth of it stares you in the face.
So we did a funny thing here. We asked Tosin to pick up that very beautiful woman he just saw at the bar and lets see how well he would do it. It took him less than 20 minutes and they were in front of his room………….baddo!!!! As always, I will not complete a pre wedding session without creating some beautiful art work fit for the living room wall. I just love the lines we created here. Bolu likes long dresses. I thought it was a one off when i saw this until her wedding day came. WOW!! Wait for that post and you will see what i mean. This is a perfect couple. Just see the way they look at each other. Finally, the day was over and one more change of clothes and this beautiful session was ended. It was painful to let go, but Bolu had a flight that day and she had to leave Tosin, heart wrenching as it was.
I had to leave them both too and that was even more heart wrenching as these two had given me awesome photographs.
