First & foremost, let’s start with the band.
MB shot this short very
blurry arty video to give you all a flavour of the music and crack at the wedding in Khartoum – where the Blue & White Nile rivers converge (zero relevance to the wedding or the music ladies – just geographical knowledge). Listen also for the high pitched shrieks from some the ladies present at approx 50 seconds – called ‘ullulation’. They are doing so to honour the bride or groom:
“Hey ladies! Did MB tell you that he is available to do your wedding? Yes he is. Yes Mam. MB has his Canon 7D all cleaned up, greased up, wrapped up & ready to go”. “Are you any good MB?” one or two of you doubting Thomasettes may ask. “Man, MB is truly awesome, he can assure all you ladies eager to have MB on your big day. Cracking shots assured. Did you, per chance, take a peep at yesterday’s post ladies, with all those super sexy wedding shots from Sudan? And just look at more of the same in today’s effort ladies, from the same wedding of Ola & Amr in Khartoum. Check out crackingshots.com – stop – just a joke ladies! Do not ask Mr Google such a question as MB is just joking with you all (actually MB decided to google it anyway and it’s still available – must take that domain name real soon).
“And how much do you charge MB?”, MB can just hear all you single ladies screaming at your laptop / notepad / smart phone screens as you read of MB’s availability and get all uber (MB knows some German cause he is smart as hell and well traveled and worldly wise and occasionally uses German words in his posts for added ‘uumph’) excited at the thought of having one of your favourite shooters / men along to ‘do’ your big gig.
“Well ladies, MB is not cheap”, as you would all by now expect. Cause MB is total & utter quality. And MB will bring a certain pazzaz to your day ladies – rest assured”. “And WTF is pizzaz MB?, MB can hear a few of you non-HX ladies asking. “Well ladies, MB just looked up ‘pizzaz’ and it’s defined on some online site as – an attractive combination of vitality and glamour.
“Now who wouldn’t want some vitality & glamour on their big day ladies?”. “Nobody MB”. “Thank you ladies”.
“But how much MB? How much to ‘have’ you?”. “Well ladies, on account of fact you are all followers of MB and his HX blog for long time back and adore his every word, MB is gonna offer all you ‘follower’ ladies a big discount. Normal MB price for his ‘Pizzaz/Cracking Shot’ wedding photo service – USD 20,000.00 (cash only). But for all you ‘follower’ ladies, let’s call it an easy USD 15,000.00 (still cash only) and thank you ladies for acknowledging MB’s one hell of a generous offer. BTW – that’s the price for any wedding in Africa. Weddings outside of the dark continent – add USD 5,000.00. On account of fact that African weddings and African people are great fun with great music and great big beautiful smiles and everyone is laughing and all the ladies are shrieking high pitched shrieks, adding to all the fun and everyone is clicking their fingers above their heads as they move to the music.
“You are a real hero MB. Thanks for your great ‘do it for practically nothing‘ wedding offer”. “Do not mention ladies. Afwan – as MB and others might say out these parts. Just leave your name, contact email and confirmation of funds in the comment box below, with your wedding date and continent. Get right back to you. But get in quick ladies. MB’s wedding diary is filling up faster that one of those African cheetahs. Book early as poss and avoid the possibility of tear stained heart aching disappointment. Chat soon ladies”.
Some additional photos below ladies- by way of advertising MB’s awesome service. Even MB’s blurry shots are totally deadly! Look forward to ‘doing’ you real soon ladies!
