Kenny and Ivy, both from Taiwan, wanted a real desert feel for their engagement shoot to remember their time spent here in the UAE. Ivy came to visit Kenny who is busy working on the launch of the new W-Hotel here in Dubai.
Ivy is very attention to detail orientated (awesome, just like me). She knew what she wanted and trusted my ideas and suggestions to bring her ideas to life! When I suggested a styled engagement session she jumped at the idea! (It is always nice when clients put an effort into their sessions.)
When she mentioned to me that she would love to incorporate a camel into their session, I immediately thought about Al Sahra Desert Resort and Equestrian Centre.
I wanted to create a simple yet elegant look and feel to the images. I worked closely with Joelle from Lovely Styling here in Dubai. She immediately knew what I was going for and put together an amazing mood board. I absolutely loved the geometrical shaped lanterns/vases and the loosely arranged florals made up of Eucalyptus leaves ( that the camels wanted to eat )
Ivy is a natural beauty and opted for minimal make up and loose curls. Her dresses were amazing and really suited the serene desert backdrop.
Kenny is such a sweetie too – he wanted everything to be perfect for the one he loves. He was more than happy for her to steal the spotlight while he took behind the scenes photos on his phone!
Wishing you many years of happiness and a lovely wedding in Taiwan.
