It’s one thing that comes close to our love for party Jollof because
heck, it’s at these weddings they serve us party jollof rice. So we wear
our best clothes, make our hair well and essentially look good because
if you don’t, the waiter will look at you and pass you when it’s time
for food and small chops.
We go to weddings that we’re invited to, weddings that we’re not
invited to, weddings we don’t know the couple, weddings we just gate
crash. A lot. And we know how to turn up. The highlight of the wedding
is the couple because it’s their day and they’ve gone through a lot (of
financial deductions and planning wahala) to arrive on this big day.
Before the big day, they take pre-wedding pictures which used to be
strictly for souvenirs back then but has now become a prerequisite
In the words of Soumen Nath who is a wedding photographer,
A Pre-Wedding shoot captures the love-chemistry of a
couple before the actual wedding. After the wedding, familiarity grows
and the Love chemistry changes its colours. Obviously, the couple grows
more intimate. However, before the wedding, they share a different
chemistry. Its more lovey-dovey and they feel and savor each other’s
touch and glances more, almost like teenagers. They are raring to
explore each other and are very enthusiastic. A Pre-Wedding shoot
captures those special feelings and emotions, which will soon be
replaced by deeper intimacy and greater acquaintance. Today, Pre Wedding
Couple shoot has become almost a mandatory ritual for many couples.
Couples scout for locations, and themes for their shoot and want to make
it one of the most special events of their wedding. Some couples want
to recreate the scene of their courtship days. So they take their
photographer to their favourite places, places where they have been on
dates with each other or proposed to each other. Some couples want to
get their first love letter photographed and preserved for the rest of
their life. Some couples simply leave it on the photographer to unleash
his creativity and capture their love in a candid way. Pre-Wedding
shoots are most often require the couple to pose and each shot has to be
pre-conceived, planned, and staged.
That should explain the concept to you. We just love seeing the end
product and the beautiful chemistry makes us want to fall in love. Okay,
maybe get married for those of us in love.
