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

Lekan + Shola, Nice Beach Engagement Session, France

We’re slowly building momentum with our posts. I am hoping that we’ll be back to posting weekly as we have a real backlog of images that we want to share. Last year we got the opportunity to photograph a wedding in the South of France. Shola and Lekan are a couple who I have known for sometime now. In fact when Lekan proposed to Shola they both got on skype and called me about their engagement. I think I was in Nigeria at the time. Shola had always wanted me to photograph her wedding years even before she started dating Lekan. She had already told me that she would be having her ceremony somewhere in Europe. It was no surprise that they also wanted to do their engagement session in Europe too.
