Park Hyatt, Dubai Engagement – Elham & Adel

They are soooooooo adorably cute (mashaAllah).
She’s beautiful, bubbly & giggled through. He’s handsome, calm yet made her laugh & laughed with her. And me, I smiled behind my camera and my heart danced through the night ❤

Sharjah Engagement – Mahra & Ammar

I only clicked a few photos of him when he asked “…are we done?!?”
While trying to recover from the shock I said politely “but I just started your photos…” He replied back innocently “…but I just wanna talk to her!”

I smiled and told the groom that photos won’t take long and he can have all the time to talk to her. Mahra looked so beautiful in her blue gown that I didn’t blame him for his request. They looked like two peas in a pod. Absorbed in their own world. In love…

Mahra & Ammar’s engagement was celebrated with lots of joy at Mahra’s villa in Sharjah. The decorations were done by Forever Events.  Mahra looked like a Cinderella, in her blue gown and matching shoes by YSL, sitting on the kosha/stage which looked like twinkling stars. She had an extremely unqiue bouquet was from Fiore designs. My personal favorite thing was the spectacular flower display for her gifted jewelry.

Dear Mahra & Ammar,

Thank you for your trust and for giving me the opportunity of documenting your engagement. I had immense fun photographing the beauty of Mahra & the love of Ammar. I am excited to see what you two are planning for the wedding because I know it’ll be amazing, inshaAllah.

Much appreciation,

Engagement in Sharjah Ladies Club – Layla & Humaid

If I were to write Layla & Humaid’s story, I’d start with “Once upon a time there was a princess….” Seriously. Layla looked no less than a Cinderella on her engagement day and also shared her love for shoes. Humaid was shy Arab version of Prince Charming. I had the honor to meet and photograph this gorgeous couple through Humaid’s brother & sister-in-law whom I also photographed a couple months back. Following are few glimpses from Layla & Humaid’s engagement party. From her stage (kosha) which reminded me of Cinderella’s carriage to her jewelry, shoes, & bouquet; and of course her beautifully personalized dress from Dar Sara Fashion, Layla’s style spoke high of her elegance and I can’t wait to see what she plans for her wedding because I know she won’t settle for anything less than perfect!
