Saint Regis, Dubai Wedding – Latifa & Mohamed

She looked up as he arrived at the bridal suite.
A sincere smile spread across her face.
Looking at her nervousness, my associate photographer asked her – “are you feeling shy?” She laughed out loud and nodded “yes!” in agreement.

She didn’t stop smiling since that moment. The difference was, this smile was of a confident girl. She was not nervous anymore. Because he held her hands & his presence by her side was assuring her of a lifetime of ‘happily ever after….‘ ❤

Latifa & Mohamed’s beautiful wedding was celebrated at The Saint Regis Dubai. Their wedding stage/kosha and ballroom was decorated gracefully and with great attention to details by O&M Wedding World. Latifa looked stunning in her white bridal gown, YSL shoes, and carried a green & white bouquet. My video team & associate photographer were thrilled to document Latifa & Mohamed’s elegantly sparkly night!

Bustan Rotana, Dubai Wedding – Roqaya & Abdulqader

You know the ecstacy of true love?
When two people in love are so caught up in each other that they forget the world around them. Showing kindness, utmost care, and unconditional love towards each other. She was warming his heart with all her might. He was the fabric of her very existence. Filling each other’s hearts with joy and satisfaction; making themselves complete…

Roqaya & Abdulqader’s wedding was celebrated at Roda Al Bustan, Dubai. The kosha/stage decorations was done by Emirates Brides. Roqaya wore a stunning dress from Esposa, shoes from Manolo Blahnik, carried a bouquet with unique flowers, and had matching hangers for herself and AQ with their names written in Arabic.

Styled Photoshoot – Al Jawaher, Sharjah

I was thrilled when I received a call from one of my favorite venues, Al Jawaher RCC in Sharjah, to document a styled photoshoot for their upcoming marketing campaign.

Le Méridien, Dubai Wedding – Rawda & Mohammed

When the smiles spread across the face without a reason,
When the flowers bloom extra without a season,
When the highs and lows of life start to look even,
Know that you are in love…

And that’s exactly what I saw on the wedding day of Rawda & Mohammed…

Rawda & Mohammed’s super fun wedding was celebrated at Le Méridien Hotel, in Dubai. Dream Wedding Services did a splendid job decorating the stage/kosha. Rawda wore a stunning bridal gown from Esposa, swoon-worthy shoes from Manolo Blahnik, and carried a bouquet from Moz Flowers with pastel colors flower arrangement, and of course Rima Hassan Photography was honored to document their perfect day’s photography and videography 😉
