The Million $ Question

kenyan wedding photographer 01

Hey good people. Today on the blog comes in an interesting entry. Lately i have been getting this question from a lot of people and seeing that i equally have no answer to it, i decided to pose it to the universe. This September i got to photograph my friends’ “Ruracio” – A Kikuyu Tradition Dowry Ceremony – and i am going to pose the question to you too through this ceremony as you enjoy some of the images i took.

And yes i know you want to know what the million dollar question is . . . Drum Rolls  please > > > Ladies and Gentlemen!!!

Who will Photograph Faith & Ben’s Wedding?

I have had this question asked so much lately and i always have no answer for it. However, I do have a few people in mind who are prime candidates for this top job  . . . Yours Truly included too :D. More of that as we wind up. Let’s first get into the Ruracio. Enjoy.

Then he takes some time off to pray for the task ahead.

I ain’t saying nothing.kenyan wedding photographer 06So Ben can serve uji quite well . . . mmmmmm

Cake he can serve . . . most probably because we serve ourselves cake at weddings because we kinda get overlooked a lot :D.

These two laugh a lot 😀 😀 😀 :D.kenyan wedding photographer 13

And they get emotional too . . . their choice of tissues to wipe the tears is however quite unconventional :).kenyan wedding photographer 14Then they laugh some more 🙂

And back to the question . . . there are a few people who come to mind that can do this job, that is besides me :D. I will pick just 3 for now. These are solely my own choices, and my favorites.

1. Dotun Ayodeji . . .  he is good. His blog is here.

2. Gathoni Kinyanjui . . . She can already photograph a photographer (at a recent beach wedding). Find her over here.

3. Mutua Matheka . . . The City of Nairobi can already vouch for him. Find him here.

Let me try and paint a picture of what their wedding day will be like . . .


I have no idea who will be the main photographer at this wedding but one thing i know is that my camera is coming along to this wedding with me. And with that i say thanks for dropping by and if you happen to see Ben and Faith, tell them to stop by here and at least attempt to answer this Million Dollar Question. God Bless :).
