Samburu Wedding, Kenya

Photograph by Michael Nichols, National Geographic

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel

In keeping with tradition, Samburu families arrange marriages for their daughters when they’re as young as ten. The entire community celebrates during several days of elaborate ceremonies designed to counteract superstitions and bring the new couple good luck.

Photo Tip: Your compositions should be strong and uncluttered, but also strive to have a depth of content in a single image.
