Yvonne and Kuda make our first debut on the blog this year! With Yvonne based in Australia, and Kuda in Harare, we had continuous consultations in preparation of this shoot and I must say that she is a wonderful woman. We immediately bonded. It's her gentle heart and sweet spirit that makes her easily lovable. Kuda is surely one lucky man. I usually like to know more about my clients as it enables me to bring out their real selves in my images. When i asked them about their love story, Yvonne enthusiastically shared it. This is what she had to say:
"I met Kuda through a mutual childhood friend who introduced me to him and he fell in love instantly. It took me a little while to open up but I eventually gave in after his persistence. As time went by, I had the assurance that he will be my husband. Kuda is patient, soft spoken and kind. I just love his personality. He is always considerate - he always puts my feelings first. We got engaged on the 15th August, 2017 and that was one of the best days of my life. I was excited to be able to spend my forever with him. I love Kuda because he pushes me to grow, evolve and be better.
Our long distance relationship has not been an easy road. Our families have always been our pillar of strength and their support has been so important to us. I like what his mother always says " l see you as my last born daughter l don't see you as my daughter in law" and my mom has the same view of Kuda as her second son. God has made this possible. A house built on sand is not strong but a house built on a rock, which is Jesus Christ is stronger, when strong winds and rains come it will remain still. So above all, l thank God for showing me unconditional love through Kuda . We are not perfect but our love is made perfect through Christ!"
I surely loved their love story and how they have stood together for almost a decade now. The love they have for each other was evident. Kuda easily made Yvonne happy throughout the shoot. I easily live for such moments.
Yvonne was a fierce queen during this shoot. Isn't she just lovely? They both made the shoot so easy and full of fun.
Next up was a quick wardrobe change and we were back! I love how they coordinated their outfits to give us some of that edginess using the 'Military Touch'.
I had a great time with Yvonne and Kuda. I wish them the very best as they prepare to officially tie the knot. I am definitely looking forward to your wedding, you love birds!
A tout a leur!
