Wedding Majid & Alina – The Palace Downtown Dubai

A wedding that looked like a Fairytale. That is how I see Majid & Alina`s special day.

Everything was so beautiful and perfect. This intimate wedding took place at a hidden gem in Dubai, The Palace Downtown Dubai. Burj Khalifa and Dubai mall fountains water show  made the perfect background.  The set up was done by the talented team of The Purple chair. A very elegant decor with color scheme of white and gold. Alina looked like a real Disney princess, with her beautiful white dress and long veil, and classy Louboutin shoes.

Wishing this lovely couple all the happiness on the beginning of their happily ever after <3


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.

Product Photography

I love photographing details, products, jewellry and a pretty set of crockery.

My love for stylings comes from my background of being an architect and my love for vintage from when I did a specialisation in Italy restoring old buildings.

I love putting some nice pieces together, adding a vintage touch, making them as pretty as possible and letting the magic happen.I love adding fresh flowers as it always makes everything prettier and romantic.

Below is a collection of some of the work I have done for brands in the UAE, both styling and photographing. The vintage props used are from my personal collection of antiques that I have been collecting over the years (and I am very proud of).


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…

My love for vintage, pretty things and pink just keeps growing everyday.
