We had the pleasure of meeting Lara and Tobi sometime last summer for the first time, when they both came over for consultation. Lara had reached out to us a few times prior before even booking their wedding venue. She wanted us to cover her special day and has always been a fan of our work. She told me that she knew I (Omojesu) would be her wedding photographer long before her and Tobi were thinking of getting married. I was truly excited and honored to be their wedding photographer. We started the day at the Hyatt hotel at the Galleria in Houston and proceeded to the church and ended the night at the Sans Souci Wedding Venue & Ballroom. This was one very beautiful wedding and we loved every single part of capturing their beautiful memories. We took a trip to Las Vegas for their engagement shoot a few months before the wedding. This was a very busy long weekend for us, they had their traditional wedding the day before the white wedding.
Lara and Tobi met for the very first time in high school. They walked past each other numerous times in school but never said a word to each other. Fast forward a couple years after high school they would see each other again at various church functions but still never spoke. Some more time passed before they saw each other again when a mutual friend had a baby and were both visiting separately. Lara walked past Tobi and for the first time, they exchanged greetings (Lara poked Tobi in the stomach playfully as she walked past which she still doesn’t remember till date). Tobi asked for her Blackberry BBM pin (“to expand his professional network” so he said Lol). A few weeks went by without any communication until one day they decided to go see a movie as friends. Their friendship grew over a couple of weeks. On one faithful day, Tobi asked Lara to make him some plantains and she agreed. It turned out to to be a trap because Tobi is actually a really good cook but wanted to see if she would do it. That day they shared their first kiss and have been together ever since dating back almost seven years.
