American based event planner and DJ – Smita and Sahil, visited Dubai on holiday and planned a gorgeous engagement shoot in the desert during this time. Smita wore a gorgeous pale pink strapless tulle gown, and Sahil dressed in a handsome black suit. With a sandstorm brewing while the photoshoot was taking place, the photographers, MelRish, were able to work their magic to transform the images into stunning memories.
In the Photographer’s Words
It was a pleasant morning but later in the afternoon, a sandstorm started to brew. Shooting in a desert while there was a sandstorm going on was a crazy idea! Really crazy but we still went for it! These shots are taken with sand blowing into my ears and into my mouth whenever we talked or smiled. But kudos to the couple for braving the sandstorm. Who knew that the photos would turn out like these!
After facing the sandstorm, we drove to Bab Al Shams where they had booked a romantic dinner for the two of them. Good thing the sandstorm had mellowed down a bit and we were able to get clear shots around the hotel.
The sand coloured hotel with its Arabian furniture and fixtures gave the e-shoot a unique and romantic theme. The little bit of fuchsia pink flowers around the resort added a pop of color which made for gorgeous images.
The images turned out stunning and were later used for the couple’s Save the Date cards. The photographers were able to work with the beautiful natural and simple surroundings giving a romantic air to the images – and the sandstorm added to the beauty!
