Houston Discovery Green Engagement Session, TX, Olu + Dupe

Not very often I get a couple that does two engagement sessions. Usually it happens when your couple love fashion and enjoy dressing up. I've worked with Olu and Dupe before in Nigeria covering their Nigerian Traditional Wedding in Lagos. Having had that experience with them really added a new dimension to their engagement session. You might be wondering, aren't they married already? Why do an engagement session in that case. Most Nigerian couples have two wedding ceremonies (Nigerian traditional wedding and a blessing). It's very common to do an engagement session between the two events.

San Francisco City Hall Engagement Session, Ani + Adeniye

We flew out to San Francisco to get this engagement session done. We wanted to get a very different feel from their local resident city which is Houston. I was introduced to Adeniye first then Ani while I was shooting a wedding in Houston. They were the most relax couple I'd ever met. The day we met we immediately hit it off, Adeniye was sharing her interest in interior design which in a way lead to the choice of location for their engagement session. Enjoy!
