Good afternoon Lovelies,
I met Rebecca Rees over the summer and even though I haven’t officially introduce you to her I wanted to share this engagement shoot with you today. It’s so blooming pretty, and despite what you may think it was shot in Dubai. (If you scroll down you will understand why I mention this now) The couple, the location, the lighting…. everything about this shoot is perfection. I love love love it! Rebecca also filled me in with a bit about the couple, which makes a really nice read for a Wednesday afternoon. 🙂
And over to Rebecca… “Before the shoot, I met up with Evans and Belal over a homemade lemonade and instantly knew they were going to look great in front of the camera. After a few emails back and forth about the location of the shoot (Evans admitted they find decision making hard because they’re both Libras!) we eventually decided on a beach shoot at sundown. I’m used to running or sometimes crawling through sand to get the right shot, but my hat goes off to them for having more than enough energy to run and jump around on such a humid day. It’s probably down to the fact they’re both fitness fanatics and luckily for me, totally at ease with the camera.”
Where did you meet your fiancé?
We met in Dubai, through common friends (the usual here 🙂
How long have you been together?
We have been together since January 2011, so 3,5 years.
Where are you both from originally?
I am from Holland, and my fiancé is from Syria/Saudi Arabia (but lived his whole life in Dubai almost)
Where did your proposal happen and how?
He proposed me on our holiday in Zanzibar, it was one day before the New Year. He arranged a beautiful set up for dinner on the beach and had arranged for a singer while having our starter and during the proposal there were 2 saxophone players. It was incredible romantic and he really put a lot of effort in it.
We have been looking at many venues near marina and on the palm. Our preference is Waldorf Astoria but our wedding planner is just finalizing the cost etc. since this will be their first wedding (it is a new hotel).
Waking up on a Friday morning and cuddling in the bed with our lovely cat (fluff) then we go to the gym early morning, make breakfast together when we get home and tan at our pool and / or garden. In the evening we like to go for dinner with friends or have a BBQ in our garden if the weather is fine.
