"Jambule" means "take my picture" in Chichewa.

This is one of the women at the Malawian Muslim wedding I photographed the last weekend of June. The guests were very excited to have a photographer at their celebration, so many of them asked me to take their picture.

To see more photos and read about the wedding, please visit my blog: //stefaniegiglio.wordpress.com/2010/06/29/a-malawian-wedding-under-a-baobab-tree/
