When German wedding photographer, Tanja Kibogo began planning her own anniversary session she knew the location had to be special. “I got the idea of doing it in the Sahara, a unique and rare place just like our marriage and relationship,” said Tanja. They happily returned to the country where they wed, and the resulting images by Irene Fiedler are nothing short of stunning. See it all inside The Vault!
From Tanja Kibogo… At the beginning of this year 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 a film for my business, 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 Kenya and got married there and that’s where the wedding photography business idea was born. Last year I got the idea of doing it in the Sahara, a unique and rare place just like our marriage and relationship. We decided to book Irene for our anniversary photos and couldn’t have been happier with the results.

From the Bride…We were married outside in the middle of the bush with roaring lions in the background (literally). The wedding was on a private farm and serves as a research and conservation center for lions, so there are nearly 200 lions on the farm. Our wedding was very small group, and we just wanted to give our friends and family a trip of a lifetime!!

From Kibogo Photography…For a film about my work as a destination wedding photographer, I picked the stunning backdrop of the Sahara desert in Morocco. My dear friend Irene was there to shoot portraits of my husband and me, and then I turned the camera on her and used her as my model wearing an ethereal tulle skirt from Noni.
For the location, I chose Kasbah Sahara Services Deluxe Camp which has great service, yummy food, and amazing tents. Hotel Mhamid is located in the last town called Mhamid before entering the desert. That where you leave your rental car and they drive you with a 4-wheeler to the tented camps in the middle of the desert.
The scenery is amazing and so calming. A perfect place to have an elopement or small intimate wedding. At night temperatures dipped down to freezing but during the day a toasty 25 celsius made for great weather to explore the desert. We were there in January, which they say is the coldest month.
