GET TO KNOW MY WEDDING MATES – 01. DUBAI PHOTOGRAPHER PAULA SCALCO

OMG I am excited about this blog series. I am excited because I love my wedding mates and I’m hoping these blog posts may entertain you for approximately 3-5 minutes twice a week. (I’m assuming you need a break from Netflix??) So I’m kicking today off with my beautiful friend Paula. She’s an awesome photographer with the best vintage style you have ever seen. She’s a Mummy, a well traveled photographer and loves Nutella. I think you’ll like her.

The work stuff…

  1. What do you do and who are you?  My name is Paula and I am a wedding photographer and owner of Paula Scalco Photography.
  2. How long have you been in Dubai? Over 11 years
  3. How did you start your business? I used to be an architect and always loved everything antique and detailed. Once in Dubai, I knew I wasn’t entirely happy with my job and decided to do a wedding planning course in the UK. I then got a job as a trainee and started in the wonderful world of weddings. I was always carrying my camera and than quickly found my true passion, which is capturing weddings.
  4. What’s the best thing about your job? Being able to capture one of the best days of people’s life and making all the happiness and emotion of the day eternal.
  5. Do you have a team or work solo? It depends on the type of shoot and how many people it is required. For smaller shoots I work by myself, and for bigger weddings and projects I have a team of photographers and videographers. All the editing of the photos and album making, I do it by myself.
  6. What makes you different/ special/ unique?  I believe my love for antique and vintage, and being a romantic really shows in my work.
  7. How have you been affected by COVID 19? It is difficult times for everyone. All my jobs in March where cancelled, my weddings in April have all been rescheduled and I have received very few requests for the next months.
  8. What’s the first thing you’re going to do when life becomes a little normal? I will take my little daughter Maria to the beach.

The fun stuff…

  1. What is the strangest talent you have? I can spot a not straight picture hanging on a wall as soon as I walk in to a room and I have to fix it!
  2. Do you have any strange phobias? If so what are they? I have phobia of snakes and moths.
  3. What is the weirdest or worst thing you have ever eaten? Chicken heart… it is a very typical dish that my Dad cooks.
  4. If you could have any superpower what would it be and why? Tele transport. So I could be with my parents and bring them to Dubai to see my daughter every day.
  5. If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you would buy? My dream old car, a Japanese Figaro.
  6. Which three words describe you the best? Dreamer, Romantic & Perfectionist
  7. What’s your favorite sandwich filling? Nutella! Not sure if it is considered as a sandwich filling but I love Nutella with anything.
