Yinka's Igbeyawo (Yoruba Traditional Wedding)

Lagos, July 2012


Yinka was my very first bride in Lagos after my return. I was super excited because she's also an old friend.

She wanted a classic look that wasn't too "matchy matchy" with her our fit. I opted for colors that complimented her skin tone and the color she would be wearing instead of an exact match. Here is what we came up with…

We tried a bold red lip with orange highlights and a pretty pink lip. We could't make up our minds so we decided to do both on her big day.

I absolutely LOVE this picture, it's totally cliché (for Nigerian weddings) but I still love it!
