What do you say we continue this Thursday on a totally gorgeous, exotic note in the picturesque sand dunes of Morocco? Yep. We knew it wouldn’t take much to convince you! Married duo, Tanja + Felix Kibogo, are the talent (and beauty!) behind Kibogophotography and we’re pret-ty glad that we get to share their debut in front of the camera today on GWS via their gorge anniversary session captured by Irene Fiedler! As you’ll see in just a sec, these photos are about as dreamy as can be, but what really sparked T + F’s interest in doing a shoot in the desert was to capture a video of the two of them together. That’s where Marco Dück Films comes in, and you can see his gorgeous work in the film at the end of the post, so don’t miss that! But first Tanja shares a bit more about her anniversary session ideas with us:
At the beginning of this year, actually right after new years eve, we packed our bags and boarded a plane towards Marrakech. Going to the Sahara Desert has been a dream of mine for a while but never had the chance to go. So why now? Well, I wanted to have an image film for a long time, but was afraid of being in front of a video camera, afraid of myself in motion. The other reason was, I didn’t know how to create a story behind it or a script that makes sense and captures the viewers attention. The last reason why I kept on postponing, was the location. I wasn’t happy with the idea of doing it here in Germany, where I am located, because that’s not me, that’s not us as a couple. We met in Africa, Kenya and got married there and that’s where the Wedding Photography business idea was born. We are mixed culture couple with so many unique and different aspects that it did not feel right to create the image film here in Germany, besides the sun never shows up too. So last year I got the idea of just doing it in the Sahara, a unique and rare place just like our marriage/relationship Of course I didn’t have to ask Marco twice!
What a surreal dream! (And what an absolutely gorgeous couple!!!)
The shoot took place on the grounds of Deluxe tents Sahara Kasbah Services in Sahara, Morocco. We would love to visit this breathtaking place!
Don’t miss the film that started it all! It’s definitely worth a watch:
Tanja, Felix, Marco + Irene toured more than 600 miles through the country of Morocco as a crew of four + enjoyed the beauty of nature and delicious Tagines along the way! What an adventure!! Big thanks to all of you for sharing and congrats to Tanja + Felix on your anniversary!
