Funmi’s and Akin’s engagement ceremony was colorful and eventful. Akin’s friends and family showed themselves by adorning blue scarves, while Funmi’s friends and family retaliated by adorning orange scarves. One did not have to look too far, or for too long to know which side of the wedding party a guest belonged to. Funmi and Akin, on the other hand, chose purple as their color for the day – a color that fit the occasion perfectly. If I did not know better, I would have sworn that a King and his Queen were celebrating his coronation with his loyal subjects. In many ways, they were royalty – if only for that day. The ceremony was rich in tradition. Akin and his friends had to prostrate in front of his new in-laws, and Funmi had to return her last name to her parents. It was all amazing. Shooting the couple was a breeze. When two people are that much in love, the photographer almost has to beg them to stop making his job too easy. With enthusiastic smiles and eager eyes, the couple could not stop sending silent messages to each other, messages that were audible to them alone. Although inaudible to the rest of us, the messages were thankfully not invisible. A picture, as they say, is a thousand words.
