Nashipai & Kereto – Issa Maasai Affair

Maasai Wedding

Location: Naisoya, Narok

Gadget(s): Nikon D3300

Accessories: Yongnuo 560 III

This was no ordinary wedding. Because I got to know all the mamas in the kitchen and they kept asking, ‘Umeshiba?‘ Talk of ‘you should know people’. I have already mastered the art of getting connections to eat early at weddings.

Meet the groom – Lemayian Ole Kereto. Much respect for this guy, he got me my first political shoot. The famous Ole Ntimama portrait (RIP) and the Uhuru portrait you see on my blog, are because of that shoot. That’s how we met BTW.

And the Passie ushered the ceremony with a word of prayer.

And, Lemayian, ‘Do you do?’

Lemayian: I so much do sir!

From the eyes, it’s like Lemayian wants to say, “Mimi, Lemayian Kereto, naapa ya kwamba… 😂”
