Painting the town red?

Before i even begin, kindly be warned that very funny antics were pulled at this particular wedding. But then again, they had fun while at it.

This was my last wedding to cover with my previous camera model, the Nikon D90.

The weather was looking good that day. If you follow me on twitter, you will know i hate the glaring sun on a day i am covering a wedding, especially a garden wedding.

The couple decided to paint the town red that day, literally.

I remember talking with her and telling her how a wedding is supposed to be a fun experience. As in, have fun while it lasts.

Yes, she was her own deejay. She sang her way to the podium, none of that music coming from a music system.

And when they were asked to verify each other, the bride just had to pull this stunt huh! lol.

My second photographer had carried his 70-300 mm lens so i grabbed it from him and used it for the rest of the ceremony. I loved the depth of field i was getting from the images 🙂

The bride told me they were shy to just kiss in front of everyone, so behind their palm felt like a safe hide-out *whistles softly*

The bridal party was not left behind either, they loved to dance, to be more specific.

The photo-session was very short and rushed so i shall not feature those images. As we left for the reception, i asked my second photographer, Ben Kiruthi, to capture the brides maids waving at us on the vintage car since i was the driver.

I can confidently say i had fun despite the slight headache i got towards the reception but somehow, i survived 🙂

Counting down..

In exactly 5 days, these couple shall be walking down the aisle. I shot with my now sold camera, the Nikon D90 way back when i met them for the first time.

I have to say that in my history of doing engagement shoots, these are the best i have ever shot.

I loved their chemistry, from the way they talked and held each other was nothing short of pure awesomeness.

The preferred location was the arboretum once again. I prefer to do my engagement shoots out doors but heck this two would have still done well indoors 🙂

I have to admit i learned something very important during the shoot. I realized it’s very important for couple’s to really get to know each other and be soaked into each other by the time they are about to walk down the aisle. Very important, my opinion that is.

20th of August needs to get here FAST! I am pumped and ready for this one…more so, i am definitely looking forward to the photo session 🙂

Pulse Friday: Virginiah Maina

Yes, the weekly Friday post is back again.

Initially, this shoot was meant for her portfolio and not for the pulse cover. At the end of the shoot though, i was quite impressed and requested her if she could appear. She didn’t mind at all. This second shot right here was my favorite.

I majorly utilized the blue gel this time round, a three light set-up as always. Enjoy 🙂
