Engagement Shoot: American Love in Dubai

Engagement Shoot: American Love in Dubai

Today’s super-sweet engagement shoot comes to us courtesy of Dubai-based photographer Liz of LIZJvR Photography. Stephanie, the bride-to-be, and her fiancé Alex are both from Detroit, Michigan, and chose to hold their engagement shoot in Dubai as this was where Alex proposed while on a business trip.

Featuring the iconic Burj Al Arab and the cutest photo op idea – imprinted hands in sand and the all-important engagement ring – this shoot will leave you smiling from ear to ear. We actually pinned this very idea back in 2013, which goes to show that Pinterest really is a fantastic hub for creative photo inspiration. Below, Liz gives her thoughts on photographing this lovely American couple.

A Note from the Photographer

Stephanie accompanied her boyfriend Alex on a business trip to Dubai for two months. While he worked, she studied – at the same time as getting a tan, I might add. 

Alex had some plans up his sleeve and popped the “Will you marry me?” question at the top of the Burj Khalifa.

They are both from Detroit, Michigan, and wanted to capture their time spent here in Dubai. After about two weeks of emailing back and forth, and visiting a few locations, we decided on the perfect spot for their engagement shoot.

We ended the session by having my all-time favourite drink, the Tamarind Margarita, at Tortuga, the vibrant and colourful Mexican restaurant at the MinaA’Salam, Madinat Jumeirah. Cheers!

I also want to congratulate Stephanie on passing the exam she studied so hard for while in Dubai. She is now a fully fledged nurse and soon-to-be-Mrs.

Congratulations on your engagement guys!
