I have longed to do this post. Maybe because it was the first shoot I ever did in life. I knew little about photography. All I knew was to slide to Auto and shoot. I dared to do something different though, I yearned much to be unique and be amazing. I stored this photos for quite a while but recently as I was building my portfolio I said, ‘Why Not?’
It was on 13th December 2014. The wedding takes place in Rombo FPFK Church grounds. We arrived late so the first person to shoot was an auntie of mine who was giving a speech.
I twisted my camera to the bride and groom only to find them smiling.
This lady Sereya, she sang a beautiful Maasai song
Candid shots of the brides maids
Then the champagne
Wait… She was my teacher back in primary school
And she taught with my mom (right)
So this was quite a moment…
And gifts. She is my sister Julian
And she poses for a pic with a friend of mum
And this … I have no words
Maybe this was my first path in photography. It may look shoddy but for a complete amateur who’s job was to press the shutter, it was quite something. #NiJesus #GloryToGod
