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.




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.

Wedding – Milena and Guido

I had the pleasure to photograph a very intimate wedding of italian couple Milena & Guido. It was a fun day, and I got to practice my Italian with them and the close family. The day started with a wedding at the italian embassy. We than headed to Dubai Marina, for a beautiful sunny yate ride, in Palm Jumeirah and Burj al Arab. The day ended with a scenic sunset by the amazing seafood restaurant Pier Chic, at Al Qasar hotel at Dubai Madinat, where the dinner took place. The photos show the happiness and some arabic elements that Milena choose to include in her special day. Wishing them both a life full of happiness and many more sunsets together like the one captured in the images <3

Surprise Proposal at the Beach

What could be more romantic than a proposal at the Beach?!?

In a beautiful Dubai beach, with Burj Al Arab on the background and a magical, S & L had a dream surprise proposal.

Everything was beautifully organized and crafted by lovely Doua (wedding planner and event stylist), from The Eventista. She took care of every detail.

The theme was rustic chic. The colours were a hue of blue and yellow!  The amazing cake from Cup N Cakes Dubai, gave an extra special touch.

Pregnancy Shoot – Miryam & Family

Another lovely sunset in the Dubai desert… and this time with a stunning happy Brazilian family. Miryam is waiting on her little princess to arrive! Together with the hubby and the big brother to be Pedro, we had a lovely fun photo session in the desert.  Every time I photograph a sunset in the Dubai desert, I fall in love and feel happier to be living here. The lovely breeze

and pinkish colour of the sky made this session really pretty and magical.

Pregnancy shoot – Flavia & family

Last shoot of 2015… And what a great way to finish it. Photographing a lovely family on a beautiful sunset at Jumeirah beach – Dubai.  Flavia is expecting a little angel, Pedro. And to register this moment, we spent a lovely afternoon filled with laugh and play, together with beautiful boy Bernardo and hubby Jackson. What a great fun family, what a pleasant day! All I can ask for 2016 is many shoots like this one, with great family like Flavia`s, and great joy.  Happy new year everyone <3

Rania – Sunset at the Beach shoot

I love styled shoots! And this one in particular is so feminine and cute. Rania is a writer of a fashion and lifestyle blog in Dubai, called The Blush Diaries. She is so sweet, and we both share some passions like photography, pink, soft colours, and everything cute. We did this styled shoot on a beautiful sunset at Jumeirah Beach. The results are photos that look soft and pretty like a dream.

Pregnancy shoot – Paula & Ata

Paula is a lovely lady from Brazil. Ata is the sweetest, funniest, gentleman from Iran. They met in Dubai and call it home now. I had the pleasure to record Paula’s pregnancy on a lovely hot afternoon during summer in Dubai. It was hot and humid, but that did’t stop us from having so much fun and capturing beautiful images of the in love parents to be. At the we all went for a little splash inside the clear blue water of Jumeirah beach.
