Ngaa & Chenge’s Wedding, Harare, Zimbabwe

Chenge and Ngaa were just a dream. We met two days before their wedding, discussed a few details of the day, and they fully trusted me with their special day to make the best decisions for their photos and timeline, and best of all – we got the best light imaginable for their couple shoot as we were scheduled right on time – actually a little early, so we had a little extra couple shoot time. :)

Both of them are such amazing people. Chenge is such a people person and you can tell he loved seeing all his guests & catching up and there wasn’t a moment where he wasn’t chatting to someone. Ngaa is quieter of the two, & you can tell she is determined and a fiercely loyal friend. Her gentle nature is so endearing and she moves so elegantly and has a gracious manner about her.

She really trusted me which was so amazing and makes my job so fulfilling. I suggested that we go outside the venue to have the couple shots as I had spotted some amazing trees and light, and straight away, she agreed without a hint of apprehension. I took them into the middle of some trees which they kind of had to crawl through bushes to get to, but she just smiled and said “The only way to get the right shots is to rough it”. I love that kind of character!:)

My second shooter was Dirk and it really was great to have him to help me and there are some pearlers that he took. He is the best reflector holder I know, and helps me out with the small things, like handing me some water when I think I don’t need it.

Ngaa and Chenge, congratulations on a beautiful day!

Man they are soo cute!

Oh I *heart* bridal portraits!


Another great photo by Dirk! You can just see the excitement on her little face before she walks down the aisle :)

Oh my word – she is just the most beautiful bride.


Gotta love “Blue steel”!

    I love the photos with the cycad and ferns in the background. The colours of the leaves brings out the colours of their clothes… And their names written on the dance floor – what a brilliant idea!!!
