Houston Engagement Session, Ibukun + Tolani

I was very lucky to have shot Ibukun and Tolani's engagement session earlier this summer. I was ws referred to them by Tolani's sister who's wedding I had shot the previous year in Houston. I haven't blogged that wedding yet (one day I'll get round to it as it is one of the most beautiful weddings I've photographed). Ibukun and Tolani have such amazing chemistry quite different from most couples. They share their relationship interests on their YouTube channel which is where I got to know a lot more about them. Tolani is a really talented lady with interests including Hair and  Make up, they both are engineers with who love to dance when they unwind. With so many creative interests it was hard not to feel intimidated doing their engagement photos. With the help of Chioma from Dure Events, we decided to present a different side to their personality by doing a very "Glam" session, quite different from what I usually do with couples. We got them into very stylish attire and took them to the docks East of Houston where we got to do half of the shoot on a boat then we did the remaining part of the shoot in the prestigious Omni hotel presenting their more elegant side of their personality.
