Sharon and Amunga are engaged

I am so so excited to be sharing this engagement session with you. Amunga and Sharon are my friends. Amush put me on notice ages ago and I was both honoured and terrified to be chosen as their photographer. They are both photographers, so I am plenty nervous to be shooting their wedding in Mombasa later in the year. If I can’t get out of my head when someone is making a picture of me ( is this light right? ahh! Gummy smile! does this lens make my butt look big?), it’s a safe bet it’s the same with Sharon and Amunga. There are three people behind the lens!

They met at a job. Amush was being Mr. Cool-the-camera-is-an-extension-of-my-eye, Sharon was just starting out in her photographic journey. These two, well, they are fireworks together. I am in awe of how they look at each other, like they can’t breathe or something. Being around them is to be in the presence of a beautiful, no holds barred kind of love. You can tell that they see in each other their best friend.


‘I’ve never been this confident, fearless and totally in love with someone as much as I am with A’. On the other hand, one of Amunga’s favorite things about Sharon is how she sleeps. ‘She sleeps so FWAH! She drools!!’

She has an awesome laugh. She’s one of those people who can throw their heads back while laughing and still look like a super model. Sharon, you are gorgeous. Amunga, I’m used to seeing you in jeans and t-shirt, I didn’t know you had this GQ-model in you. (I’m joking, i promise)

He proposed at sunrise, this is their engagement shoot at sunset.

Sharon, Amunga-I am so humbled to be the person to tell the story of your love. You are simply beautiful to watch. It may not be protocol for the photog to be crying at the wedding, but I’m afraid I may not be able to help it. I am happy for you and wish you more happiness, more laughter, more silliness and learning in your journey. Much, much love to you both.
