From when David proposed to Shiru at All That Jazz December 2011, I knew they were a special couple. It was my first time seeing a public proposal.
Upon David’s request, Aaron Rimbui took a break from his keys and before the crowd gathered at Tribe Hotel, David went down on one knee and popped the question to which Shiru said yes.
I was honoured to take their engagement photos which you can take a peek at here: http://mwarv.click.co.ke/2012/07/15/david-and-shirus-engagement/
During their wedding ceremony, David made a 5-point public declaration of the kind of husband he’ll be to Shiru. A declaration that had everyone – including myself – cheering and nodding in approval.
David is a bar raiser, and Shiru his queen adds a distinct sense of beauty and class to the bar raising.
I had the pleasure of shooting their wedding with Naomi Katetei (@nkatetei) while George Kanyingi (@nyingez), Mike Katetei (@profkatts) and Ashley Makena (@ashleenena) did their wedding film. There was such great teamwork between us – especially at the photo session – where everyone became the other’s assistant, strobing, carrying cameras, speedlights, tripods and bags as needed. Many thanks for the great collaboration fellow oneTOUCHers. I look forward to the next time we’ll be shooting together.
