I have been following Seyi George and his company SC-George for quite some time now. He is easily on my top list of photographers I would contact If I were planning to get married in Africa. What I love most about his work is how he captures rare moments. You almost get a sense of either being there or wishing you were present at the event. I love that he is able to capture colors in the boldest way possible. I also love that you can see that he is not just a man with a camera, he is an awesome director. He captures bridal parties in the most enticing way I have seen from any African Photographer in recent times. You can check out some more of his work below.
