Our top 5 locations for a pre-wedding shoot in Lagos

Are you looking for a pre-wedding shoot location in Lagos? Relax I've got you covered *wink. Lagos has a lot of pretty sights that can help you capture very chic engagement shots and the best part is you neither have to break the bank nor go too far. Here are my top 5 in no particular order.

The Ikoyi - Lekki bridge - Similar in structure to the Brooklyn bridge in the United States, the Ikoyi-Lekki bridge is a beautiful backdrop for a romantic shot. It is one of the most popular locations for an e-session in Lagos.

Oriental Hotel, Lekki is a hot romantic spot for an engagement shoot. I've never seen any shoot at this hotel that I didn't swoon over. It is definitely gonna be one of my e-session locations.

Lagos beaches and waterfront: I just couldn't pick out one beach or waterfront location. They all provide the best scenery. The marine scenery Lagos offers is to die for. You can 'set the scene' by having a boat ride, horseback riding, quad bike riding and various other activities.

Muri Okunola Park: In a bid to beautify Lagos, the Lagos State government has been building recreational parks around the state. The Muri Okunola Park, which is one of such parks, is situated in Victoria Island and has become a popular location for pre-wedding shoots.

The Palms Shopping Mall/ Ikeja Shopping Mall- This is also a favorite of photographers and intending couples. There are so many different locations you can choose from within the mall. Setting the perfect scene is a lot easier when shooting in a mall

Oshodi Heritage Park - Yes, Oshodi! I need to give Governor Fashola a big hug for the work he's done with oshodi seriously.. transforming it from a haven for miscreants to a beautiful and serene place. Ths oshodi park places in our list of beautiful pre-wedding shoot locations.
