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.

The Carrick House, Lexington, Kentucky Wedding, Bradley + Eloho Sneakpeek

As much as I travel, I still get excited by new cities and places. Lexington, Kentucky - definitely not a city I have visited but the charming "Bluegrass" state offered beautiful outdoor scenery and plantation style architecture that served as beautiful backdrop to this wedding I photographed in April. The weather gods were smiling on us and the couple, Eloho & Bradley, were fun to work with and it was a pleasure spending time with them and their entire family. Here are a few pictures from the occasion.

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.
