The Journal for New York City's Top Wedding Photographer Jide Alakija

Lola OJ, A portrait

Whenever I get the chance I like to do a portrait session of someone with interesting features or personality. Photography whilst is the vocation I love, my true passion is meeting and discovering people. I use photography to get to know them and somehow tell their story. 

I met Lola in Dubai whilst on a wedding photography assignment. When I saw her I simply had to ask her for a portrait session. You can see from the photos that she does indeed have some really interesting looks but also her personality, introversion, comes out in the way I've used the lighting.
