What do you need for the perfect wedding? Maybe you want a ceremony in a grand cathedral with gorgeous stained glass windows, or a large reception with plenty of dancing, drinks and food.
For Yasmine and Bob, all they needed was love and a Harley.
In all my time as a Qatar Wedding Photographer, I've never had a couple with this much chemistry!
The two were so in love that they just couldn't wait to get married, so they eloped and had a quiet ceremony in , Tbilisi, Georgia where they signed their marriage papers. In fact, this photo shoot after the wedding was their way of announcing their marriage to friends and family. For some time, I was the only person who knew the secret that they got married! :D
We traveled to the desert just outside of Umm Baab in Qatar (with Yasmine and Bob on his Harley, no less!) to shoot some of the most beautiful photographs I've ever had the pleasure of capturing as a Destination Wedding Photographer. Having someone to help you plan a personalised and unique wedding shoot such as this is so crucial, and as you can see from the photos, it's worth every penny.
Despite the shimmering sands and the sunlight bouncing off of the tall sand dunes, no light shone brighter than Yasmine. Her smile never faltered, even when Bob's Harley got stuck several times on the way out. These two were simply happy to be in each other's presence, their faces glowing with the warm light of two souls joining in what is sure to be a strong, loving marriage. At certain points,
I had to bring Bob back to the present moment.
His mind and his gaze never left Yasmine -- not that I can blame him!
Yasmine had brought two wedding dresses: one to pair with boots and the Harley, and one for a romantic candlelight shoot for nighttime. Her first outfit featured detailed floral straps, a flowing veil, and a stunning bouquet with bursts of color. Both of these two are made for modeling, and they were incredibly easy to work with, but I think Bob and I can both agree that Yasmine stole the show.
Her poses and expressions were flawless!
I'm not going to lie... the part of the photo shoot at dusk was my favourite!
I love using fairy lights, and the softly flickering candles practically oozed romance. This is where Yasmine's second wedding dress came into play. Its delicate eyelash lace and off-the-shoulder sleeves definitely fit in with the romantic feel. I felt like I was peering in on the most intimate of moments,
and capturing what I saw made me remember exactly
why I became a Destination Wedding Photographer.
I wish both Bob and Yasmine the best in their new life, and I want to say a big thank you from
Timeless Photography to both of them for allowing me to participate in such a special moment
of theirs. May you have many happy years ahead of you!
