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.

Teri and Michael - A Romantic Proposal Pt. 1

I've fallen in love with this couple over again, their effortless style and the pure love they have for each other just shines through their photos. To better appreciate the beauty of their story I've decided to divide the Teri & Michael story into two posts. One for the proposal and the second post will feature their very stylish and romantic e-session. Hold your breath guys I'm about to present you with the most well thought out proposal you've ever heard of.

The Proposal

I might have to write that one later but he was SENSATIONAL! I must have said this story a million and one times but he ushered me into my completely refurbished apartment (which I had left in a STATE). There was mellow beautiful music playing in the background and TONS of candles all over the place shaped according to my initial 'T' There were also hundreds of petals and love hearts all over the place. My bed was all made up with silk sheets and rose petals shaped in a heart with a rose in the middle.

From the #DNAroyalwedding. Hashtags help you keep track of shots that your photographer may have missed

So you are at the airport ready to board a plane to Mauritius for your honeymoon and your flight has been delayed, what then do you do to kill time? You pick up your iPhone and start viewing your wedding photos from the day before. There is no way your official wedding photos will have been ready but you can count on your guests to capture really beautiful memories from your wedding, some that even the official photographer may miss. This is why an official wedding hashtag is important to help you keep track of all the special moments- the tears shed, the emotions.. Wedding hashtags are a fun way to keep your wedding memories in one place and to keep your guests involved.

Coming up with a hashtag that will catch on is very easy, the key is to keep it simple. You can use your initials, your wedding date and the year or you can use a wedding theme or a popular nickname- the ideas are inexhaustible, just make sure that your hashtag is unique to you and can be easily identified and remembered.

Some popular wedding hashtags I'll like y'all to check out is #KO2012 which follows the wedding journey of wedding blogger Kunbi of AislePerfect (a quick Instagram and twitter search will show you a timeline of amazing pre, during and post wedding photos). Also the amazing Loren Ridinger and Duane McLaughlin. Check out all their wedding 'amazingness' by typing #DNAroyalwedding in the search box on social networks like instagram and twitter. A google search of any wedding hashtag will reveal beautiful wedding photos.

For fun ways to spread word about your official wedding hashtags, keep reading. I found some inspiration for you guys (you know how much love I've got for y'all, right?)
