Annabelle & Thomas | Engagement in Dubai desert

dubai deset shoot with strong wind

So happy to be in Dubai last month.

We were invited to be a part of an amazing congress for luxury wedding vendors, and also to do engagement shoot with beautiful people from United Kingdom  but living in Dubai now,  Annabelle & Thomas.

It was amazing and we were impressed with the hospitality and kindness. To tell you the truth Dubai was not on our bucket list, but now we would like to come back, over and over again.
So lets get back to Annabelle & Thomas engagement.

We have been told that to experience rain in Dubai is a blessing.

But to experience a sand storm on our first desert trip in just 10 minutes being there is unbelievable.
Yes, these storms can be very powerful and dangerous but this one was just enough to have amazing fun with Annabelle & Thomas for their engagement session.

Palazzo Cavalli Venice Wedding Italy | Jade & Henry

 

 Palazzo Cavalli Venice Wedding Italy.

Life is a collection of moments…

And indeed, there are a couple of memorable moments in life that’s truly thrilling.                                        

One such moment is when you are born. While others have a firsthand feel of the anxiety and excitement that comes with your entrance into the world – you only get to feed off stale, watered down stories years later!

But somehow, life more than compensates you for this via another all-important, life-transforming, and memorable moment – your wedding!

This time, you’re all grownup and are in a much better position to partake, appreciate and soak-in every beautiful moment that this special day has to offer.  

A turning point like your wedding day is one such moment to nourish, cherish, and garnish with all the trappings of a world-class event! 

One couple that hit the mark, leaving no stone unturned as they created an unforgettable experience around their wedding, was Jade & Henry. 

The event took place in Venice…

Venice has always been widely described as the “City of Love”, “Most beautiful city built by man”, and “the world’s most romantic city”.

And like in the movies where location is everything, Jade & Henry exchanged marriage vows on Friday, 23rd March 2018, at the Palazzo Cavalli – aka, the wedding ‘headquarters’ of Venice!                  

This iconic location - not far from the Ponte dell'Accademia and just next to the Palazzo Barbaro on the Grand Canal of Venice – offered perfect backdrop for capturing great memories of the wedding ceremony between Jade & Henry on camera.

The reception took place at Rosa Rosa Venice – beloved by award-winning American actor – Johnny Depp. This warm, elegant, and historic restaurant famous for fish dishes and pizzas, played host to Jade, Henry and guests with the finest cuisine in town.

Finally, Jade and Henry call it a day at the hotel, Ca’ Malipiero – a one-time Venetian palace once home to several nobles and their families – including Pasqual Malipiero who was the 66th doge of Venice.   

All in all, this event was no doubt the happiest day and a turning point for the principal actors involved: For Jade, it was the day she kissed singlehood goodbye, embracing her new adventure

 Austria Wedding photographer

Karen & Leung form Hong Kong traveled half a globe to come to one of the

most beautiful village in Europe, Hallstatt in Austria.

Hallstatt is a village on Lake Hallstatt's western shore in Austria's mountainous Salzkammergut region. Its 16th-century Alpine houses and alleyways are home to cafes and shops. A funicular railway connects to Salzwelten, an ancient salt mine with a subterranean salt lake, and to Skywalk Hallstatt viewing platform. A trail leads to the Echern Valley glacier garden with glacial potholes and Waldbachstrub Waterfall.

The village Hallstatt is such an unbelievably spectacular place that even the Chinese

have created a copy of the ancient salt mine village.

But only in the original will you discover this truly unique culture with such

a history all in a breath-taking mountain setting.

The Benefits of a Wedding Test Shoot

The Benefits of a Wedding Test Shoot

An intimate, modest wedding within the company of close family and friends. A mouth-watering feast overflowing with hundreds of guests. Wedding receptions on the beach, in a glorious castle or cosy restaurant. A themed wedding or perhaps something more traditional. Whatever you decide, there are a few things all these “wedding ideas” have in common.

Firstly, the desire to make sure everything goes to plan. The desire to be a reflection of the wedding that truly celebrates the love between two people. Trying to make this a genuinely significant day for everyone, especially the newlyweds. A day to remember and treasured for a lifetime.

Not to be taken lightly, the person responsible to capture these memories is the wedding photographer. Through documenting wedding stories either in the form of photos or video, this is an important day in the life of the newlyweds that will always stay fresh in their memory. Therefore, it's crucial to choose a photographer who will know how to tell your unique love story, as every wedding is a truly unique affair.

Once you've made your decision to select a photographer for a wedding based on a recommendation or insight into his work, the only way to check whether the photographer has really managed to adapt to the needs of the newlyweds is to conduct a “wedding test shoot” which provides numerous advantages.

Compatibility test

A wedding test shoot specifically allows the newlyweds to make sure their selected photographer is the one to truly show the special bond between them, and to discover if the newlyweds and photographer are compatible.

The conversation between the photographer and the newlyweds serves as a way to explore, express desires by the newlyweds and get to Know each other. During the shoot you'll clearly establish if you're on the same wavelength and ultimately visible to both you and the photographer. For every couple it's essential to preserve the memory of such an important day in your life, so why take the risk when all it takes is just a few hours to carry out a short test shoot.

Makeup test

Equally, a test shoot is also the perfect excuse for the bride to test her makeup and hairstyle for the big day. Far from being the exact same hair and makeup for the wedding day, it provides a chance to try something out, mix and match and get a sense of what fits. Also, this test is often enough to convince the bride that choosing a specific hairdresser and makeup artist is the right choice.

Photogenic test

There are people who we would all class as beautiful, however, that doesn't mean everything will turn out the same in a photograph. Screen tests not only help the bride and groom to relax in front of the lens, especially those who subjectively think “I never look good in photos”, but can equally help the photographer as he prepares to make the ultimate creation to everyone's satisfaction.

To perfectly ensure you get the exact kind of wedding day memory you imagine, a wedding test shoot is the ideal solution for any couple. If there's a sense of trust between the newlyweds and the photographer, everything becomes far more easier. Why not use the photos from the test shoot as ornaments, personalized gifts for guests, invitations or even thank-you cards or simply remain as a wonderful keepsake. Above all, there's no other sight more beautiful than that of an image bursting with love between two people.

She did all this knowing that she would shortly begin a life with one who allowed her to be proof of life’s precise beauty.

Capturing evidence of Luka and Lana’s melting souls blend, began in North of Croatia/ Varazdin on the 13th of August 2017, it was a wedding that complemented and showed true love as it is, a blessing.

They thrilled in the affirmation of support spewing from all phases of the room reassuring both of them that this day was the beginning of something not short of sheen and glee. It was special, binding and engulfed in bliss and ebullience. “One who finds a wife, finds a good thing,” this was the brace and foundation of this union as Luka and Lana shared their loyalty and vows for each other before God and human pillars in their lives.

The reception was bombarded with joy and delight for the newly wedded couple from all ends of the room and even as they laid lanterns into the sky to light up their union and ensure that that it was engulfed by brightness.

The trend of capturing this breathtaking moments of their lives, did not stop there. We later proceeded to the beautiful Opatija , Croatia to grasp evidence of bliss between their commitment to each other.

The day itself came, and it was magic from the beginning to the very last second. The atmosphere was akin to that of a fairytale, and everything went off without a hitch. With the warm and welcoming environment that the two families projected, there was really little wonder why the da ass as perfect as it was. Still, even though one would have expected a ceremony as serene and tranquil as this, there was something about this wedding that presented a peculiar quality.
