He put the ring in the avocado and we are clapping!
An engagement is considered a big milestone in a relationship. It's the start of a new life together. While most couples celebrate the engagement with a small party and a few phone photos, others go all out! We have seen all sorts of over the top engagements from using flash mobs to propose, to helicopter rides, to causing a scene at the mall with motor cycles, name it.
One couple has impressed many Kenyans by having a 'Mjengo' themed engagement shoot. Renown photographer Willy Muturi captures the couple, Josiah dressed as a Mjengo guy and Catherine as a Mama Mboga. The storyline revolves around a Mjengo guy who woos a Mama Mboga by constantly buying groceries and fruits from her and using his wit and humor, he finally impresses her enough to accept his proposal. It's raw, authentic and super relatable. And the best part? He uses an avocado to show her the ring...and who doesn't like avocados?
Willy Muturi is known for creative concepts. If you remember, there was another couple that went viral after a creative photo shoot that revolved around how they met in high school. They were clad in school uniform and the whole high school sweethearts theme was quite impressive.
Here's how the Mjengo shoot went down all images courtesy of Willy Muturi.
Congrats to the love birds.
