Laura and Thuita
Hello there :)!!
It’s Valentines week and what better way to celebrate than have a blog post featuring one of my favorite couples, Laura and Thuita. This has got to be the goofiest couple I have ever known. They find joy in the simplest things and have crazy one-liners. They also make each other laugh a lot. I found that beautiful. It may just be me, but I think that laughter in is important in relationship, it keeps things light and fun and during the hard times a shared sense of humor can see you through. They would also get lost in their own world and forget we were there, which was great for candid shots. Chemistry between a couple is easy to capture. I had tonnes of fun shooting these guys. Laura and Thuita also run a blog called V3rcity which you can check out here http://www.v3rcity.com/ . Major shout out to my assistant during this shoot. I truly appreciate your help.
Here are a couple of shots from the day. As always, feedback is appreciated.
Shoot Location: Nairobi Arboretum – This has got to the most random place. We found a guy with an acoustic guitar and the voice of an angel just singing under a tree. That blew us away. We stood there just watching him. His twitter handle is @BensonMutahiG . V3rcity feature him in their latest video. Find more details on their blog. We also found an art class going on. Serious sketchers, some using just pencils and drawing paper. Those guys had serious talent. This shoot was an eye opener for me.
Camera details: All images were captured on a Canon 60D with a 50mm f/1.8 lens.
Had a good laugh with this one.
Lost in their own world
There’s a story here. I’ll let you caption it.
The was a tree near where they were shooting and they decided they wanted to use it.
I wish you guys all the best.
