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

Glen Island Harbour Club Wedding, New Rochelle, NY, Ken + Antoinette

Ken and Antionette have already been featured on this blog as a very beautiful engagement session at the Lincoln Center in Manhattan NY. Being based in New York State I always look forward to covering weddings that reflect the personality of what my photography has become. I truly believe that every location has it's own culture that has an influence on how the weddings are presented and therefore the photography.

This was a fun couple to work with who put a lot of planning into their wedding. They fused both their different cultures of Ghanaian and American in their dancing, food and attire. In fact there was a lovely dance performance by Ken and Antoinette during their reception entrance of Fuse's Antenna.

Atlantis Bahamas Wedding, Asim + Ashley, SneakpeEk

We shoot so many weddings all over the world that we haven't even had time to share most of them online quick enough. I think it would be good to share some images from the weddings we are shooting as we shoot them. So here you go our first "sneak peek" into a recent destination wedding we shot in the Bahamas.

We are yet to post their engagement session but Asim and Ashley have been a very fine couple. They had a destination wedding in the Beautiful location of the Atlantis Resort at the Bahamas. They had family mainly who flew from all over the caribbean attend their very intimate ceremony. We were VERY blessed with the weather on this one. More photos to come later. Enjoy the sneak peek.

Tim + Tanwa, Blenheim Palace Wedding Oxford Wedding

The first time I shot at Blenheim Palace was earlier last year. Then I was involved in shooting a styled shoot with some of my very creative colleagues. Ever since then I have always hoped that one day I'd get a call to shoot a wedding there as it's an absolutely amazing place to get married. That call came when Tanwa inquired about our services. She mentioned over the phone that she was getting married at the Palace. I was ecstatic when I checked that we were available to shoot on her proposed wedding day.

The weather was great on her wedding day. One thing I haven't missed ever since moving to New York City is the unpredictable English weather. On Tanwa and Tim's day it held up quite nicely. We had a blast. My mate, Joshua flew over with me to cover this one.
