A Vintage Styled Wedding Shoot | DuduGuy & Gazmadu Photography

Gazmadu & Duduguy Styled Nigerian Wedding Photoshoot - BellaNaija - February 2014 -8

Bye bye boring wedding inspiration!

Nigerian photographers will take the art of photography to the next level in 2014 – and they’re already off on a great start! This year expect more edgy and creative wedding shoots, on trend with international wedding collections released last year – the photos today bring to mind Vera Wang‘s leather and lace dresses – from her Spring 2014 collection, and Ines Di Santo‘s motorcycle jackets – Fall 2014.

Since you may not have time to capture intimate moments during your couple session on The Day, one thing to consider is a post-wedding shoot. Don your dress, he wears his suit and you snap away. Novel idea for Nigerians right? That’s what two of our favourite photogs – DuduGuy and Gazmadu are proposing.

They’ve teamed up to bring you “A Vintage Styled Wedding Shoot”, which they hope inspires you for your wedding portraits or a post-wedding shoot –

“One of the major challenges most photographers have in Nigerian weddings is time! Everyone seems to be in a hurry for almost everything … and especially the well sort after “intimate” Couple Portrait session. Emotion, passion and style are what we always try to bring out in couples when we create these moments.

The idea behind this shoot is to show our prospective clients how much fun they can have during their couple session regardless of the location. The location of the shoot should not hinder a great photog’s ability to bring out the best in a couple, long as we get a clear space with no interruptions, and the couple works with and trusts their photog then the sky is the limit”.

Being a vintage inspired shoot we decided to use locations and simple props that can easily be found around us. This shoot is also to encourage clients to book for post-wedding shoots, especially when they didn’t get enough time for themselves during the wedding.

To all 2014 couples, please remember to have a blast during your wedding, you get the timeless pictures that will become memories from all the fun.”

We LOVE this shoot! From male and female models in flat tops (a la Lupita at the SAG Awards) to stunning headpieces and a dash of rustic vintage chic, it’s so retro yet Now!

Enjoy!

    I am really, really sorry but I find nothing vintage about this. In fact, I’m annoyed. I thought it was initially shot in a jail with all the bars, until I noticed it was taken in front of closed shops. A derelict environment does not equal vintage, the fact that you made use of what is around you is not an excuse. For the sort of platform you are aspiring to, it is unforgivable. Even if you made use of what was around you, each state is full of colonial buildings that would have served your purposes better. The props are another matter entirely and I wont even go there. Good lighting which greatly helped the quality of the photographs but not the look of the people in them per se. If you find that my comments cannot appreciate the finer sense of photography, think of your clients who would be laymen and women who just want to “fine” for photo.

    I think it’s cute, but wearing the dress again? It’s a lil on the stressful side.

    I love this, a vintage shoot with a mix of retro and a touch of Naija. Keep doing you Mr Dudu guy 🙂

    There might be a little bits and pieces of rustic elements to the pictures but no vintage…

    I agree with others, not so vintage at all.

    Maybe shoot should have been titled “Dare to be different” cos thats what i see this as. Stepping out of the norm scenery, the norm styling (short dress, high top hair).

    Nevertheless, good work. Team duduguy all the way. Dude gots to take my wedding pics.

    if it was a foreigner that did this work I know there would be a lot of applause. why will you call those bars? like you don’t stay in Nigeria. we need to support our country men. not find fault in everything. this was a great job. simple and classic I loved the hair cut I had to save it. will cut my hair that way lol

    • Bobosteke & Lara Bian

      I called them bars because they look like bars and they are actually bars which in Nigerian parlance are referred to as “burglary proof”. I recent that you consider me such a philistine and in such in public space even if posted anonymously. I do not need to kowtow to you or anybody. I do not need your consent, your permission or to please you. You are incredibly myopic to consider that everyone (like you) opines based on the nationality of the product or person. I do not always call it as I see it because sometimes a lot of hogwash and putting down (because the commenter would never measure up) is disguised in statements like: “I’m just speaking my mind” or “I’m just being sincere”. But dang if I wont comment on a direct opposite of what is indicated. Consider my comments again. Was it not reasoned? Because it was done by a Nigerian, I should give them a high five and tell them they did well and not point out the flaws? Such a pity. Such a huge undesirable pity. Have recourse to the BN and the mamalawo picture that was put up on another post. Did they not change it after BNer’s commented? Take a while to ponder.

      While we are at it, “Love Wears Many Phases” is another suggested title.

      sip some zobo n let ur mind kulleeeee. chai on top wetin? Maybe u need to understand or examine d POV of the artist. Maybe their aim is to shift d focus from d luxurious background BL is used to, n put on the individual who owns d day. Not everyone in naija can afford a dubai background wedding n have legs long enough to secure some fancy lekki resorts… so madam abi na sir self bia, coolu temper n dis own oyinbo too tune am down biaaaaaa o.

    There will always be critics sha!! Spending their time trying to pull others down to their level. This idea and photography will be given a major thumbs up anywhere around the world, infact i am in my work place in the UK now and my colleagues are going crazy over the concept. I havent met any of thos that put these together but all i can say is they did a pretty fine job. Well done to all that were involved!
