Hello Hello! Weekend is here which means I have some time to update up on our blogs.
Today we are sharing with you one of our favourite ladies in the media industry - Rhiannon Downie-Hurst of Bride Club Me! "Fairy Bride Mother" as she is called - Rio does look after everyone in her 'brideland' giving genuine help to brides, vendors and followers of Bride Club Me.
Today's post we will introduce you to Tjaša (pronounced as T-ya-sha), a Slovenian expat in Dubai blogging her adventures at Tjaša in her own world primarily to share her day to day experience as an expat in Dubai to her family and friends back in Slovenia. Tjaša's love for donuts, coffee, and ice cream led her to instagramming the coolest places in Dubai where she can get them. And who knew here love for these things would quickly become a new career in Dubai.
Today we would like to introduce you to the lovely ladies from MyWishList.ae, Neetu and Preeti. Close friends since years and now partners and entrepreneurs, Neetu and Preeti have come a long way planning and buying gifts for family and friends to now managing their very own online gift registry business.
Dubai is a small place when it comes to women entrepreneurs networking! I was invited by the all-time fashionable Kelly Lundberg to one of her chill evening cocktail nights a few months ago along with many of her friends within the industry.
As a new entrepreneur myself, it always fascinates me to hear new business ideas. And the lady I am about to introduce to you is the first marriage proposal planner in the UAE and is doing so well at that!
Over the summer we caught up with Kelly Lundberg, an award-winning and celebrity stylist to update her business portraits and press images. With such warm and energetic personality, the shoot quickly became one of our favourites to date!
A very talented and crafty woman, I've worked with Clare on some of her wedding set-up shoots for Wedding Planner Dubai / The Perfect Moment and I must say that her attention to detail and very calm approach to planning and execution is just what every bride need for her special day.
It's always such a pleasure when we have ladies into the studio that are from a creative field such as ourselves, watching this lady get straight to work on shoot designing her setting and creating perfection, was such a treat! We always love to promote to our clients that our sessions are more of a pamper, but focused on creating the perfect image for her business, no little detail was missing and even when the hair and make-up was being applied, we were chatting away about business.
Natasha is a professional make-up artist whose fascination in make-up started from an early age of 15. She then worked her way up playing with her moms make-up collection to working alongside with Pat McGrath. If you are an avid make-up artist, then you know that Pat McGrath is one of the most reputable make-up artist in the industry.
Some few months back we worked with Nicola while she was updating her portraits for her coaching business. Within a short period we worked with Nicola, we have known her to be an incredibly kind and caring person. And we knew she would do really well with coaching people.
Kira came to us for professional headshots to use of her brand new website. Kira is a yoga teacher, motivational speaker and writer and host of upcoming Kira in the Middle v-log. Her ideas for the shoot sounded really fun and exciting at her mentioning she wants to bring her sets of teacups! Who doesn't love tea right?
After more than 10 years of living in Dubai, summer is one thing that we will probably never get use to, so you can imagine just how excited we are to be able to shoot outside just as soon as the weather permits us. How can we not be excited, winter sun in Dubai makes for some really magical light a photographer like me gets so giddy about! This styled shoot will show you why we yearn for that winter soft light :) Yes, I know I may sound crazy to you right now with all these obsession with light, but photography my friends is all about LIGHT, every photographer will tell you that :)
Dubai is full of wedding creatives who are truly passionate about what they do and it is inspiring to be working alongside these people to create unique ideas and inspirations to share both in the UAE and international audiences. Collaborating on styled shoots is one of the best ways to put amazing vendors together to show just what a perfectly select team can do for your special day!
In the last couple of years, the use of Instagram by companies has sky rocketed and the use of professional images has never been more important. Our team have been helping many companies achieve consistent brand-focused professional images.
We are happy to share that we are shooting with Rania for The Blush Diaries for her blog and social media editorials :) I 'insta-met' Rania over on Instagram and is really impress of her style and content on her feed. Up until her e-mail for an editorial shoot, we are girl crushing on her work and quickly established our love for clean soft look with a dash of blush when we set out the vision for her lookbook sessions :)
We first fallen in love with Beljour's wedding gown from a bridal shoot we did earlier in the summer. Apart from their gown's stunning lace and bead details, we were impressed at the carefree movement our bride can make due to her gown's light material. We were able to move from location to the next creating lots of images for our client.
We just know whenever we work with Hannah of the TheHotBoxKit that she's going to bring fun to the table. When she first mentioned of the shoot, we knew it's going to be amazing! The location, the crew and models she is bringing, the inspiration for the shoot and of course her latest collection of sports and yoga wear all seamlessly go together!
Another very talented fashion designer has joined our roster of editorial clients. Aya - Designer and Founder of Ayandgul was introduce to us by our production house neighbour EK Productions who office-base just across us at the Lake Central Tower in Business Bay.
We had an opportunity to shoot with Sousee Bella's first collections of loafers earlier this year. These Italian made high quality loafers are not only stunners but are also very comfortable pieces. Their design is so flexible, you can them step out either with a jeans or with a cute girly dress. Featured on this post is the fantasy laser loafers.
