5 TOP WEDDING TRENDS 2016 We absolutely love wedding décor, so much so that we will gladly spend extra two hours at the reception set-up or just photographing details! It’s such a great part of any day and it really helps tell a story, plus editors love detail shots as it enhances the story when […]

Summertime in the UAE is usually the best time for summer weddings in Europe. This summer we had the chance to photograph this beautiful Swedish summer wedding at Smådalarö Gård a little bit outside of Stockholm. The ceremony took place at Dalarö church and the reception at Smådalarö gård built in the 1800’s, which are both located […]

MARIA SUNDIN WORKSHOP – SPANISH BOHO In May, we teamed up with Joelle from My Lovely Wedding for a small and intimate beginner’s workshop at the Desert Palm. It was a two day workshop and we covered two afternoons with lots of small tips for beginners to master a little bit more of their cameras. […]

Tara & Chris Wedding, Rixos the Palm, Dubai This wedding day at Rixos the Palm was absolutely wonderful! A beach themed day with some crafty DIY touches. From the simple paper fans and the starfish to the umbrellas, the blue Manolo’s and the C&T burlap rug rolled out at the ceremony, Tara & Chris went all […]

The Hyseus Family Photos, Qasr al Sarab Family photos is something really special to me. From the moment your children arrive into your arms to the day they are acting like a teenager goes far too quickly. Embrace each day you have together and ensure you remember those moments when the kids were two or three or four years […]

Shangri-La is one of those venues that I have a love-hate relationship with. It’s no doubt a beautiful venue and great for wedding portraits and smaller weddings in general. But every time I’ve shot a wedding there, there’s been a sand storm(!). How is that possible? We live in the desert so you would presume […]

Any wedding day at the One & Only the Palm in Dubai will no doubt be gorgeous. And so was Ezra & Matt’s wedding at this venue. The colour scheme was filled with peach and pastels and the wedding event stylist was My Lovely Wedding. Joelle from My Lovely Wedding created a beautiful tablescape with a lot of greens, […]

We love family portraits on the beach! And, when a family decides to do a session on the beach, we’re always hoping for that amazing soft afternoon light, and often times if we work with the right timings, we can pretty easily get the right light. During this family session on the beach with the Papatryfons who recently […]

We love engagement sessions, it gives us a chance to connect with our couples before the wedding. And if we’re not photographing your wedding, we still love to photograph an engagement session or a save the date. These engagement sessions bring us a lot of joy! It’s fun, create and give you a sneak peek of […]

Maha & Omar came all the way from Dubai to have an engagement session with us in Abu dhabi. We love when our couples want to try something a bit different. Maha & Omar are a couple that bike a lot in their leisure time and so they wanted to incorporate their interest in biking into their […]
