Once in a while, God grants us the chance to document love stories in the form of engagement session. We had been in communication with Bernadette for quite a while about documenting her wedding, since both her & Brian work & live in the UK. Thus a few days before the wedding, we linked up for an engagement session at the very beautiful Limuru Country Club. We had some late lunch then shot as the sun set. Absolutely loved it and definitely this is a venue I can never have enough of....

The fact that beautiful love stories like this still exist, is still a mystery. I had tears in my eyes as I sat down on my desk to write this love story. The love that Kim & Kez posses for each other is transcendental, one unlike any I have ever witnessed. When I think of they two of them, these simple words of Maurette Brown Clark’s song – The One He Kept For Me, replay in my head… ‘The one I was praying for The one He delayed me for The one He kept for me Until it was time’ So, before...

Glory be to God!! It’s wedding season now, and love is in the air. I thank God that He sends the loveliest couples our way. Ciku & Brian are two of the most lively & joyous couples to work with. It was such a joy being part of their family & friends on this, their wedding day. We had loads of fun and this was a love story I had the honour & joy to document. All glory, honour & praise belongs to God. I took the time to ask Ciku how they met, and this is what she had to say… “...

Oh yes, it feels great to be back, to get to share our experience & love stories with you once again. GLORY BE TO GOD!. We have been well, God has been faithful to my wife & I…Before we kick off this post, I would implore you to take some time & watch this 4 minute video. It was the late great Dr. Myles Munroe speaking to Jeff Koinange about dying empty. This is my desire today for me & for everyone reading this post, that you will not die until you accomplish your God-given...

We thank God for the blessing & favour that He has granted us, to enable us, out of nothing that we have done, to be privy to such grand love stories.

Glory be to God, for such beautiful love stories as these do exist….we were privileged to be part of such an amazing love story as this one. Jackie & Maina are simply heavenly and covering their wedding was some what of a dream come true… God in his greatness made marriage and brought two wonderful souls together in holy matrimony. For all those reading this, who do not believe that true love does exist, then this wedding is a shining testament of this truth. This verse describes this union...

Sometime in the past year, God blessed Gathoni & I with the blessing of documenting Isaac & Melanie’s wedding. We wanted to blog this wedding a long time ago, but hey, better late than never right? We took the time to ask Isaac & Melanie how they met, and this is what they had to say… Mellanie’s Version Isaac and I first met in summer of 2012. I loved his sense of humour…..After meeting several more times: his wit, charm and good looks convinced me to go out with him. We spent a...

When you get asked by two very good friends of yours to shoot their wedding, then you stop think, take a deep breath & thank God. Njanja & Koby are amongst the leading make up artist in Kenya today & documenting their wedding was a wonderful challenge & joy to us. We had worked with the two of them for quite a while & also Koby was the one who did Gathoni’s make during our wedding. This was one wedding, we had loads of fun being part of… We took the time to ask Koby how...

Today, we present to you something totally different! An After the Wedding shoot. It had always been our desire to showcase how life after the wedding was…since as we all know so many of us invested so much in our weddings not knowing that we had a marriage waiting for us. Marriage is a beautiful thing & despite all its challenges, marriages do work. So, with God’s help, Janet & Roger’s shoot will be a start of this series dubbed “After The Wedding” and hopefully we will get to tell the...

Being part of this beautiful weddings has to be one of the highlights of our career as wedding photographers. When Sandra & Can 1st contacted us to document their wedding, they sent us a short pre-invite video about their love story & we were absolutely blown away. We knew we had to be part of this wedding. Oh, the love between Sandra & Can is too incredible. It was great seeing how much they loved each other, even after dating for so very long. We know that this wedding is a...

Glory be to God as we have another awesome opportunity to share with you this beautiful wedding we shot some time ago. Gathoni & I are so grateful to God always for the chance to document beautiful love stories & share our passion with the wonderful couples we get to meet & interact with. We met Ciru & Njui on a lazy Sunday afternoon, and talked over lots of things…When we left the meeting we knew right there & then that we were a perfect fit & this would be a wedding we...

I sat worried today, wondering about all the utterly sad & painful things that have been happening in our beloved country, Kenya and generally all over the world. As I sat, I remembered about what the bible tells us, to be aware about the signs & times & realise that the end is drawing near & all these are just birthing pains of what is about to happen, the end of the age. As I thought about all these, I happened to scroll through my phone & stumbled across this video that a...

Today we share with you another beautiful love story of two very sweet people that happened our way. We had a thorough blast documenting this love story a few weeks ago & are...

A few weeks ago, God granted us the amazing honour of sharing our testimony on NTV’s Crossover101. We never take it for granted to get a chance to share our story and the far that God has brought us, and when we remember all that God has done for us, these words come to mind ‘Thro’ many dangers, toils, and snares, We have already come; ‘Tis grace hath brought us safe thus far, And grace will lead us home.’  {John Newton, Olney Hymns, 1779} Without further ado, below is the video from the...

The story of Tina & Robert is so very incredible, my words really fall short in attempting to tell this beautiful story. During the vows I heard Robert say, that God bless the broken road that led me straight to you. Those words remained stuck in my mind through out the entire day, and I knew that these words are what defined their love story and the rest of their lives. Later on, during their 1st dance, Selah’s- ‘Bless The Broken Road’ song played and Robert & Tina locked in an embrace...

  Glory be to God, finally our dream did come true. For so long we had hoped & prayed to do our own styled shoot. This is where a bunch of wedding vendors come together and plan a mock wedding. It is then up to the team to each work together & produce an ideal wedding, basically without the entire pressure of a real wedding & come up with a wedding they have always desired to be part of. So, Gathoni took it upon was the breath-taking Medina Palms in Watamu. We had always desired to...

Glory be to God, we are super excited to be sharing another love story, yes, O yes, Glory be to our good Lord. For it is in Him, that we live, move & have our being… The 1st time I sat across Kevin; we chatted, laughed & talked about everything silly in the globe, I knew right there & then we would be a perfect fit. This was one wedding we had to shoot!!!! Kevin is hilarious, while Esther is more laid back, together they make such an amazing couple and definitely one of the most fun...

Glory be to God!!! So much has been happening in our lives. We are so very grateful for life and also for us to be able to tell these amazing love stories through our lens. Every once I think of the love between a man & woman, I am taken back to the very powerful words of I Corinthians 13 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does...

Some time back God accorded us the pleasure of shooting this wonderful wedding. Sarah & Bernard’s wedding was fun, fun, fun all the way. They wanted to have a big, bad party & partying they did. From start to end, this wedding was a cocktail of joy, music & dance. I know that weddings ought to be more like this, remembering the good & fun times with family & friends. Here’s how Gathoni & I documented this very special day. Make sure you check out the trailer at the end...

Being married to Gathoni this past few months has been the greatest experience of my life…God has shown us so much favor that we have nothing to say but that may we always be instruments that He can use for His glory. Thank you GOD for such a precious gift….I would never have imagined sharing my life with a more lovelier person…thank you Jesus. We spent the day at...

When we first met Beatrice & Martin, we hit it off fast!!! They are awesome people, and I absolutely loved the chemistry that was so typical of them. We met during the flurry of their wedding preparations, but we still had a blast. We shot their beautiful engagement one cold night at Karura House & despite me injuring my toe nail on a broken twig…we had a blast… Here are a few of our favs from their engagement shoot Location :: Karura House As Beatrice was changing into her shoot...

When I found Faith, my Faith, I found a whole lot more….I found the most awesome family in the world. For so long, I desired the love of family. Having lost both of my parents at 15, I yearned again to feel part of a family…to laugh, cry embrace & go through the motions that are unique to every family. About 5 years ago, I found love & together with love, I found a loving family. Faith’s family is one of the most loving & heartfelt families I have ever come across. I found Faith,...
