Wedding in Muscat – M & T

At the beginning of the year, I had an honor to photograph a lovely couple, in one of the prettiest locations I have been.              The wedding took place in Muscat, Oman. So I flown from Dubai to join my colleague Tara Atkinson to shoot this dream wedding.The hotel that the bride and groom choose is the beautiful and traditional Al Bustan Ritz Carlton. The colours were soft and the bouquet was amazing, matching the bride`s beautiful off white dress.Wishing the lovely couple Manar and Tony, a wedding as perfect and enchanting as their wedding day.

 

 

 


Green Dream – Bridal Session

 

This session has so many nice details and inspiration, and was carefully tought by each vendor that particpated.

If, like me, you love cute things, pastel colours and flowers, I am sure you will love the photos below!

Every single detail was carefully tought by each vendor that participated.

My vision was to do a simples, rustic and femini photo shoot. And everyone involved made it possible. The bride model Katie and her bright green eyes were enhanced by the amazing make up by talented Louise. She also did a romantic and loose hair style.

The Flower Market opened their shop doors, and prepared the most gorgeousgreenary flower set up and a lovely fresh flower bouquet.  Aquae Jewels came along with some elegant and chic jewelry. They are so beutiful and made the photos look even more elegant.

The_party created the cutest pastel colours ring boxes. With lovely saying and engraving. Also some wooden keys that gave a special touch. To close with a golden key, the amazing white bridal gown from The Bridal showroom! That will make every bride feel like a real princess on her big day.

All my vision came together, and was captured with my amazing Fujifilm Kit!

I used both XT1 and the new XT2 to capture the images. A combination of lenses (60mm, 56mm, 23mm) was used. And also my cute and pink Intas Mini 8! It always bring a nice touch to any event.

Tea Party at Sponthiphoria

As you can imagine by my website, I love everything that is pink, sweet & vintage.

So I was over the moon to get to photograph this cute Afternoon Tea session, in one of my favourite places in Dubai – Spontiphoria Boutique & Cafe.

An afternoon tea with the girls is always a good idea! Specially when you get pampered first, and have your hair done! After you can chitchat and enjoy all the details. Beautiful cakes, delicate wooden toppers and cute table decoration.  All complimented by vintage books, fresh flowers and the most beautiful mix of crockery!

Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed spending an afternoon in this hidden gem of Dubai <3

Couple Shoot – Winter Dream – Vitoria & Tiago

Dubai has beautiful winters…! And what a better way to celebrate love than a winter sunset at the Beach! The lovely couple Vitoria and Tiago are very stylish and have a love for folk and dark colours. So I choose a theme that would suite their style! And the cherry on top, a guitar, an antique camera and hot chocolate with mellows! Just fall in love with it…


Bohemian beach styled shoot

The idea of this shoot came in my head while watching the beautiful sunset at my favourite spot in Dubai – at Jumeirah Kite Beach!

I just knew I had to do a photo shoot there. And I wanted to do it simple, rustic and beautiful.

A stunning sunset at my favourite spot in Dubai; two beautiful models, and some lovely fresh flowers and a flower crown! The cherry on the top… a perfect fondant cake, with handmade eatable Succulents. And some of my own furniture and candles! That is what this styled shoot consist of!I believe it is a good inspiration for any bride to have some photos taken with her loved one.

Couple session – Pinup in the Park

Once again I had a massive pleasure to photograph one of my  favourite couple in Dubai. Brazilian hair and makeup artist beauty Izabela and the gorgeous model Victor.

I was inspired by my by love for vintage objects and retro accessories. I styled this session in a dream park in Dubai. Many don`t know that Dubai has got sceneries with lovely trees and greenery. All the object used ato style are from my own collection of vintage pieces, that I have been collecting for years on my trips around the world. My entire home has got this vintage pieces so I am always happy when I get the chance to photograph them.

Both myself and Iza love the Pinup Style. Very feminine, sexy and classy. So the outfits chosen by Iza were screaming femininity and were able to show her beautiful brazilian curves. She created a curvy hair with nice curly bangs, cat eye make up and a stricking red lipstick. Victor was inspired by earthy tones, that enhance even more his brazilian tan. He used some acessoires like the cap, vest and very used brown shoes to bring a sence of period.

I will stop writing for now, and let you enjoy this dream shoot, with a beautiful sunset light kissing the sky <3
