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


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.

 


Alice in Wonderland – Wedding styled shoot

I love everything that is mystical, sweet, pretty and dreamy.

And since I was a kid, I always loved all the Disney films and stories. After 30 years, it seems that nothing have changed! My favourite colours are still pink and baby blue, and I still imagine myself as a Princess sometimes!

So, together with many talented vendors in Dubai, a magical shoot was put together! I could not be happier with the result. And I am pretty sure many grown up girls like me, would love to have a wedding day like this!

Enjoy the images and dream on…

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…


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

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
