Obi Nwokedi

Wedding Photojournalist for London

My name is Obi, and I'm a wedding photojournalist working out of London, and who with my team, shoot weddings and portraits mainly in the UK.

I'm afraid, I don't have any emotional story about getting a camera as my 10th birthday present, or how my father before me was a photographer. I was just a regular IT analyst who a couple of years back, simply came across some amazing images online, and a passion was ignited. So after loads of photography books read, thousands of images shot, countless hours on photo forums, and several years later, here I am, using my God-given talent to do what I simply love doing ...

Working with my team of Nigerian wedding photographers on documenting African weddings, we also document all sorts of weddings from different ethnicities, countries, mixes, and religions.

Morenikeji and Akin

Hi Obi, We received the album on Friday and we loved it! I wasn't expecting it at all. The box it came in, the leather of the album, the pages of the album, the quality of the photographs; everything was beautiful! I took it to my family home this weekend and everyone who saw it was impressed. Our interactions before the event, during and after were professional and always full of laughter. You always made me feel at ease. I'll certainly recommend you to others at a drop of a hat :) All the very best! Morenikeji + Akin
