Jide Alakija loves to tell stories not as a writer but with his amazing photography.
According to the talented photographer, “There's a story in nearly every situation one encounters or finds his or herself in. These experiences, these encounters are the very things that have developed my images and I find great pleasure in sharing them through the weddings, events and other documentary projects”.
The British Born Nigerian Photographer spent most of his formative years in Southern Nigeria and London, UK. Initially undertaking a PhD in Biomechanics, he decided to follow his love for capturing moments and has gone on to become one of the most highly respected and demanded wedding photographers, both in Nigeria and in the UK.
He has an interest in creating photographic art and presenting images that tell really interesting stories and memories. When working, he prefers not to interfere with the event and situations he finds himself in. Capturing the reality, moments and the stories is his focus. Jide loves to travel. Thankfully, his photography allows him to do so quite a bit. His wedding photography takes him all over the US, Europe, Africa, even as far as Sri Lanka.
His photography portfolio is incredible; His work has been displayed in cities around the world and he has taken commissions for firms, such as Afren and Unilever UK. He has worked with a number of celebrities, covered lots of glamorous weddings and most recently, the celebrity wedding of the year- Tee Billz & Tiwa Savage.
