Petronella Photography's profile image

Born in Uganda. Grew up in Zimbabwe. Moved to Alabama at age 10.

NYC area based wedding, marriage proposal and portrait photographer helping multicultural couples celebrate their love in a modern way.

My name is Petronella Lugemwa. I was born in a tiny village in Uganda and grew up in Zimbabwe. When I was 10, my family moved to the United States (Alabama) in search of a better life. Growing up in the States, I felt I had to hide my cultural identity to fit in. As I've matured, I’ve learned not only to be proud of what I’ve achieved but to also embrace and celebrate my Ugandan heritage as a big part of who I am personally and professionally.

My photographs, which have been featured in Grace Ormonde, Munaluchi, Aisle Perfect, Burnett's Board and Style Me Pretty, celebrate who you are, your heritage and family beautifully. Since I was born in Uganda and grew up in the United States, I understand the importance of having photographs that tell your love story in a modern, photojournalistic style.
