Styled Photoshoot – Dubai

I know I know…
I’ve been late in posting this styled shoot but trust me, I’ve been delaying it on purpose. This style shoot made my heart feel so full and despite the awesome-craziness on the day of the shoot, I wanted to share most of these photos separately on my Instgaram.

Each photo is so close to my heart as I got to work with some of the most ahhhhhh-mazing wedding vendors in Dubai as well as the super talented photographer + friend, Vangelis, from Santorini, Greece (see his breathtaking photos from the shoot HERE).

Thank you to all of you from the bottom of my heart for making this dream shoot come true. It would not have been possible without your utmost efforts, talents, and creativity.

Etihad Tower Wedding, Abu Dhabi – Dana & Saif

Her deep dimples were all the proof needed for the love to be witnessed in the room.

It felt like the bonfires must have lit,
the angels must have danced,
the doves must have flown,
the hearts must have beat faster,
for every time she smiled, looking at him.
With love…

Dana & Saif celebrated their extravagant wedding at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi.  The ballroom was stunningly decorated by Tibru Wedding. Dana looked stunning in her white ballroom gown, YSL shoes, and carried a pastel colored bouquet.

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 😉

Dearest Rawda & Mohammed,

Thank you to both of you & your entire families for trusting me with your big day ❤ I couldn’t stop smiling the entire night, I couldn’t hold myself back from dancing on the stage, and I absolutely couldn’t hold myself back from saying mashaAllah again and again every time I saw you both smiling at each other. May Allah adorns you both with his mercy and increase your happiness, health, success, and eternal love, ameen.

Love,

Al Jawaher, Sharjah Wedding – Mariam & Tariq

I’ve heard the phrase “…love is in the air!”
I understood the meaning while watching both of them.

Only if you could see the way he was looking at her, you’d believe that he wasn’t making promises of bringing her roses everyday. Or stars. Or even moon. He was making promises of brining colors into her life. And light. So she can watch her beauty and reflection into his eyes. All day. Everyday!

Mariam & Tariq’s wedding was celebrated at Al Jawaher RCC in Sharjah. The grand ballroom decorations were done in origami theme by Dream Wedding Services. Mariam looked jaw-dropping in her Esposa bridal dress, stunning Casadie Shoes, and carried a bouquet from Moz Flowers with a unique flower arrangement.Jawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_invitation_cardJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_Dream_stageJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_perfume_tableJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_tableJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_perfumes_decoration_stageJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_origami-detailsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_dreamJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_cakeJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_round_table_decorationJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_Dream_kosha_decoration_stageJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_esposa_bridal_gownJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_bouquet_mozJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_band-ringJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_dress_esposa_gownJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_braceletJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_henna_detailsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_ringJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_crownJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_diamondsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_earringsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_ring_shoesJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_moz_flowers_bouquetJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_shoes_casadieJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_esposa_dress_ring

My darling Mariam & Tariq,

You two are the epitome of cuteness! Maryoom, I thoroughly enjoyed watching your perkiness and smiles from behind my camera. Tariq, I loved how you looked at Mariam every single time. As you start this wonderful journey together, I pray that Allah showers his mercy on both of you and blesses you both with a lifetime of happiness, colors, light, & endless love. All day. Everyday! ameen.

Al Jawaher, Sharjah Wedding – Amna & Nasser

She has a heart of gold.
And a buzzing personality.
He is calm and charming.
Lighting up the room with her smiles and delightfulness, I watched how he smiled when around her. He was swooning over her beauty and lovely presence. And seemed satisfied with his own life which was about to be completed by her in it.

Amna & Nasser’s wedding was celebrated at Al Jawaher RCC in Sharjah. The ballroom decorations were beautifully done by Dream Wedding Services. Amna looked breathtaking in her Ezra Couture bridal dress, YSL Shoes, a stunning crown from Dar Tijan, and carried an absolutely unique bouquet from Moz Flowers with his and her names around it.

Grand Hyatt, Dubai Wedding – Mira & Ali

If I could describe her in one word, I’ll use Grace.
Her aura is calming. And presence so beautiful (mashAllah) that she, in her white bridal gown, was taking breaths away of everyone who came across her.

It might have been the reason that when he entered the bridal suite, he stood in front of her for an entire minute or two to compose himself. The smart and charming prince was speechless. Their eyes met, smiles spread across the faces, and invisible fireworks lit the room. And their lives as well….

Mira & Ali’s grand wedding was celebrated in Baniyas Ballroom of Grand Hyatt, Dubai. The garden themed decorations, high ceiling chandeliers, ballroom setup, and a very unique bouquet was provided by Flower Boutique.  Mira wore a stunning bridal gown from Aiste Couture and shoes from Manolo Blahnik.

Thank you for the smiles and tons of laugh-out-loud jokes. And most importantly, thank you for your friendship! I pray to the Almighty that you both share a lifetime full of happiness, health, success, love and fireworks. Together & forever, ameen.

Thank you for everything! ❤

Grand Hyatt, Dubai Wedding – Muna & Abdulrahman

She has big exotic eyes.
And beautiful smile.
The best part was,  every time she looked at him, her smile reached her eyes.
The sight of him was giving more meaning to her smiles and more depth to her eyes.

She was becoming even more beautiful because of love.
Her love for him.
And His love for her! ❤

Muna & Abdulrahman’s glorious wedding was celebrated at Grand Hyatt, Dubai.

Al Mizhar, Dubai Henna Party – KoKo & CO.

I love henna parties.
Especially when the bridesmaid are like those of Kaltham’s.
Known as KoKo by her friends, Kaltham is an absolute sweetheart. She looked like an Indian princess in her breathtaking purple skirt embroidered with traditional Indian thread-work and a pink dupatta. I fell in love with her bangles/bracelets.  She celebrated her  super colorful and fun Indian themed henna party surrounded by her giggling & dancing friends.

A huge shoutout to KoKo & Co. for rocking the henna party and showing what selfless and genuine love means. I whole heartedly adoreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee you girls from the bottom of my heart ❤ (yeah, 20 e’s for ya’ll).

I can’t wait to blog photos and videos from Kaltham & Tariq’s stunning wedding. Stay tuned!

Al Jawaher, Sharjah Wedding – Lamya & Mohamed

His heart was like a glass.
Clean. Spotless. Filled to the brim with love for her.
When he thought he can’t love more than this, the sight of her as a bride must have added more love to his heart. Because it spilled in the form of tears.

It took Mohamed at least 4 minutes to get himself together again. He wasn’t to be blamed though. Lamya truly is a stunning girl with a heart of gold. It was like a moment of shinning stars and light when blessings were bestowed from the sky as they became each others, forever. They deserved love in the purest of forms hence they found each other.

If I am ever given a chance to write a novel, I would keep them both in mind as my modern day’s Romeo & Juliet….with a happily ever after!

Mohamed and Lamya celebrated their grand wedding in Al Jawaher Reception and Convention Center, Sharjah. Dream Weddings did a splendid job at decorating a geometrically artistic kosha/stage. Lamya wore a remarkable bridal gown from Monique Lhuillier topped with a crown by Dar Tijan, and Gina heels. She carried an exceptionally unique bouquet from Moz Flowers.

My dearest Lamya & Mohamed,

I have no words to describe how I absolutely, whole-heartedly, adoreeeeeeeeeeeeee both of you – and your love! You two have a very special place in my heart. Meeting, watching, and documenting your love has left me speechless. And utterly grateful! Yes, I feel very very grateful because of you & your trust in me and my work. I am indebted for you for opening your hearts and letting me watch & document your love story unfold in front of my eyes. May Allah showers you both with his highest favors & may your love grows deeper and stronger with every passing millisecond, ameen.

Tons & tons of love,
~ Rima
