We had a wonderful experience working with Jide from Alakija Studios. He was very accommodating throughout the whole process and his personality on the day engaged the entire bridal party. When hiring Alakija Studios (Jide) you are not just hiring a photographer. Rather you are hiring a true professional whose love and passion is photography. He came to our wedding with an artistic vision. The photos he took captured the action in the moment and the expressions of our wedding guests.

As part of the package we chose to have him take our engagement photos which was a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera prior to the wedding date. On the wedding day, he came early to our venue to scope out the best lighting and locations for pictures. He does book up so my suggestion would be to book him quickly. The investment in Alakija Studios is well worth it.

After a very memorable wedding I am kind of having my concerns using alakija photos. To be honest he is a very nice guy. No doubts. He gives his best service on the day. Captured every bit from start to finish. Calm and selfless. Worked really hard. Great Personality. Excellent! But after the day its a chase to get your online photos and other items like your wedding album. Yes, he is a very busy photographer. He is world renowned. Fabulous. But I don't think other things like client feedback, responsiveness and keeping your customers up to date and in touch with outstanding items is a big ask. You just shouldnt take great photos and then struggle to keep clients in the loop to what happens next with their photos. Is he a one team man? Then to the detriment of other things cause he's very busy. Its totally downed the excellent ratings I had given for his performance on the day and looking at the online pictures and everything in restrospect... I could have gotten a photographer more than half the price I paid - with a wedding album to show friends and family who visit regularly plus a lovely wedding photo frame on my wall and a good reference to pass on here and to those seeking for a good photographer. From my experience it's overrated.

Hmmnnn. Jide's photos online are very good. But I have to say that I was abit disappointed with the service I got for my wedding. He generally seemed to be "too busy". And even when it came to formatting the pictures, it seemed like he didn't finish all of them. I get the feeling that Jide is taking on more commitments than he can cope with, and that is resulting in a drop in standards. I think Jide is a nice guy, but he should be careful about managing his work-load, and not let it result in a drop in quality.

This man's work is beautiful. His work tells a story from beginning to end. He captures moments in a wedding that often go unnoticed. He is world renowned but not cocky in anyway and very down to earth. A bit pricey but well worth the finished product.

Jide is an amazing Photographer and has made reliving my wedding a wonderful experience. I met Jide on the recommendation of one of my good friends and I am grateful for that. His level of professionalism and experience showed right from our initial consultation till I got the final product. He got such amazing shots and I loved it all. I also have to say my initial meeting with his business manager was also great, she got me thinking about what i wanted to see in my wedding and was able to narrow down my focus to think about what was important. This also played a significant role in the final product I received. I would gladly work with his company again for other life moments
