About me

My name is Jide Akinyemi,
I’m a photographer.

Thanks for dropping by! I’m an African based wedding photographer with a dream of shooting weddings all around the world. I have shot hundreds of weddings and witnessed what it feels to be loved countless number of times (Yes, I once noticed tears dropping off my eyes during an exchange of vows at a wedding i photographed).

My Approach

My approach is spontaneous and non obtrusive  combining photojournalism with creative eyes which gives me the opportunity to document your wedding day in the most natural and compelling way. I am dedicated to creativity, superior quality, exceptional service and honest value in photography. My goal is to capture moments that give a refreshing visual narrative of your wedding day for the rest of your life. My aim is to make you feel like it’s your wedding day anytime you go through your wedding pictures. Like “frozen emotions”

My Interest

I love to travel to new places, learn about new cultures, languages and my biggest dream is to one day be one of pioneer photographer to document on the Martian soil (if the proposed Terraforming of Mars would happen in my generation).

My Portfolio

While wedding photography is what i have come to be known for, I have done all kinds of documentary and commercial assignments, from being a personal photographer to the Governor of Lagos, Photographing the Senate President of the federal republic of Nigeria to documenting the president of France during his visit to Nigeria.

My Journey

I have a degree in Physics from a prestigious Nigerian university and these days I try to calculate the amount of photons hitting the camera sensor at every given time in a bid to make useful my degree (Just kidding). I have also worked for several years at a community radio station and must have picked up an accent from spending.

Feel free to ask me any other question you would love to know about me.
