Mehndi Party – Keagan & Anam

I love living in Dubai as I have the opportunity to photograph so many different cultures and traditions.

This event was a very special one. The first day of a 3 days celebration. Keagan is South African and Anam has Pakistani/English background, so they had a Mehndi party to start. A very fun, colorful and energetic night. Family and friends gathered at their family home in Dubai, and danced throughout the night. The outfits used were so beautiful and added colour to the cute set up and added smiles to everyone’s faces.

 


Wedding Keagan & Anam – Desert Palm Dubai

I am so honoured to have photographed this beautiful  day wedding, that carried on into a fun night. The couple Keagan & Anam couldn’t look any cuter and happier, and all the lovely guests surely made the wedding a joy.

The bride took care of all the details of her special day, with her amazing taste and sense of style. The venue is one of my favourite,Dubai Desert Palm, that looks like an Oasis in the middle of the desert. The decor was carefully done by their wedding planner Lucinda. The dress from Berta Bridal was amazing, and complimented the bride`s great figure.

When there is so much love involved and it is meant to be, everything just looks perfect <3


Gothic Romance – FIVE Hotel Palm Jumeirah

When a new hotel opens in Dubai, everyo0ne in the wedding industry wants to have a chance to phootgraph it!

I was lucky enough, together with some amazing vendors from Dubai, to have a beautiful shoot inside the amazing FIVE hotel at The Palm Jumeirah.

The theme chosen was “Gothic Romance” – all the love that a wedding set up needs, contrasting with some deep colours.

 

Lovely Dubai vendors <3

For the Love of Music

Once again my love for vintage, pretty in pink and flowers inspired me for a dreamy soft shoot.

Myself and my very talented friend Monica got our brains together and produced a styled shoot called ” For the Love of Music”.

I used many of my antiques props and my background in styling to produce this shoot. Together with many of my favourite wedding vendors in Dubai.

A series of love stories that is being publish on Joelle’s blog, from My Lovely Wedding.

I feel so happy to be able to express my art and my emotions through photos, and I hope you enjoy seeing the images, as much as I enjoyed creating them and photographing.
