Fashion Shoot | Zanzibar, Africa

Last November, we had the privilege of traveling to Zanzibar, a beautiful island off the coast of Tanzania in East Africa, to photograph local designer Doreen Mashika‘s new line. Since 95% of what we shoot is wedding-related, fashion was something new and exciting for us and we did not hesitate to take on this challenge.

Doreen uses local fabrics and materials for her clothes and accessories, and her designs are highly inspired by local culture. In keeping with her style, she wanted the shoot to have local flavor, so we divided our time between the Mashariki hotel, the busy local market, the streets of Stone Town, and the beach.

Because we are not fashion photographers, we are used to relying on available light and unpredictable environments to make our photos, so this was actually right up our alley. We are very grateful that Doreen’s vision included us, and we had an absolute blast. Special thanks to her, models Diana and Roweleen, and makeup and hair artist Sebastine Pepler for making a perfect team.

Doreen will be updating her website with all the photos soon, but in the meantime, here is a selection of our favorites.
