It was so easy to become friends with them.
They are both alike. Soft spoken, respectful, fun to be around.
And of course, in love! ❤
Starting their happily-ever-after with smiles spread across their face, dreams in their eyes, and love in their hearts for each other.

Her bubbly personality & warm friendly smile was lighting up the room.
Surrounded by her friends, she was the life of the party. I had no doubt this gorgeous girl, with her beautiful heart, will bring party to his life – as his bride.

Dearest Maryam & Naser,
Thank you for being so welcoming, warm, and adorable. It had been super fun to document your big day with lots of joy, laughter, and love. May Allah showers you both with best of the best because you two don’t deserve anything less.
They were both in their own time zone.
Where the orbits revolved around them as they were occupied looking at each other. It felt like the time has stopped as they welcomed their soulmate into their lives, absorbing the feeling of fulfillment and being complete.

Dearest Alia & Saif,
Thank you for being super fun and making my work more enjoyable. My team & I had immense pleasure in photographing your bubbly personalities & love. May Allah keeps you both under His mercy and showers your both with highest blessings, ameen.
I tried to explain them the process.
“Okay guys! We’ll have lots of fun. I need lots of dancing, fun, oh and smiles.”
“I can’t stop smiling!” he said innocently without taking his eyes off of her.
A unanimous “awwwww….” of the entire photo and video team echoed in the room. The rest of the night, the same room was filled with their love ❤
Aysha & Saeed’s engagement was celebrated at a private villa in Sharjah. The majlis room was decorated with a kosha of real flowers by HBG events. Aysha wore a breathtaking dress by Oia, Jumeirah. She carried a unique bouquet from Forever Bride. I think I totally drooled over for her absolutely gorgeous Miu Miu heels.
Dearest Aysha & Saeed,
You two have been ahhhhh-mazingggggg & suuuuuper fun to document. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing your beauty, laughter, dancing, and adorable love. Can’t wait to do it all over again, with tons of more ‘awww..’ moments on your wedding day inshaAllah ❤
Most people look at successful photographers/studios and think it is solely because of their amazing skills and techniques. Let Me. Tell You. The TRUTH!!!!
Honest equation of being a successful photographer/studio = 20% of Photography and 80% BUSI-NESS! (get it, busy-ness/business 😉 )
I’ll tell you what…if you are an aspiring photographer, it is easy to find photography techniques on Google. You may also learn by trial-&-error & self-teaching. But one thing that most people will not teach you is how to run the photography, or in fact ANY, business!
Very very fortunately, I graduated with a business degree (majors: marketing & management – graduated with honors – on full scholarship!) So here is my humble proposal to YOU!
- Do you want to learn about photography business?
- Need help with marketing & social media?
- Wanna learn how to write emails/contracts?
- Need help selling your services?
- Want to build a brand?
- Want to be your own boss?
If you answer YES to at least 2 of the questions above, you wouldn’t want to miss this chance. I’m hosting the very first Rima Hassan Photography’s Mixer on 9th December 2017 from 3pm-5pm in Jumeirah area, Dubai, where I will be answering all of these (and some more…) questions. And YOU are cordially invited. Only a couple of seats are left & registration will close on 7 December 2017. All you need to do is fill out the form on THIS LINK.
I hope you join me to celebrate photography & talk business!
