Mnyazi & Kagai – An epic coast road trip

 

 

 

Every love story is a tale of beginnings.

The beginning of a new life. The beginning of a journey.

My focus is to capture the beauty in-between.

I’ve always kept a list of places i wanted to shoot – in my mind. Every-time i visited the coast, Mombasa always seemed to push itself to the top of that list and a couple of weeks ago, the opportunity presented itself when Mnyazi and Kagai approached us to have the honours of shooting their wedding at the beautiful coastal town of Mombasa.

The day drew nigh and we boarded Joe Maina’s Vw bus christened “Kate” for what was going to be an epic road trip. For us, it was a new experience and it was exciting just anticipating the new cultural and work experience lying ahead.

The day was flawless and a whole new defination of “Harusi tunayo Hatunayo!!!” Lets just say Coastal people are big on life and even “bigger” when it comes to throw down a wedding party….

This post will be slightly long to compensate for our silence 🙂 but we sure do hope that you will enjoy 🙂
