I am so exited to share my favourite images from an incredible two-day photoshoot in Africa. This was my second trip to Zambia, and I just couldn’t wait to return. I fell in love with this beautiful country, with all its beautiful landscape, incredible wildlife, and friendly & welcoming people. It is raw and vibrant and makes me feel alive. Once you let Africa into your heart, it stays there forever. The planning for the shoot and the travel arrangement were no small task at the middle of a global lockdown, however Mwai of Love from Mwai somehow, miraculously managed to pull this off. For Mwai, this was a very personal passion project and I felt very humbled and privileged to work with the team to bring it alive. I love working with Mwai as she has incredibly bold and creative visions, which pushes me to grow both as a photographer and as a person. The wedding inspiration was based around the ground-breaking film, The Black Panther, and Mwai was keen to incorporate local tribes in their traditional outfits to make the shoot authentic and meaningful. We also shot some beautiful bridal portraits using different traditional African bridal accessories. The amount of detail going into this shoot is incredible and it was one of my most adventurous and exhilarating shoots ever. We shot around the stunning Victoria Falls, where accessing some of the locations were an adventure in itself. These are some of my favourite images, and I hope they manage to transport you to this vibrant and beautiful land.
