A Photoshoot in the desert | Dubai Desert Safari

Filed in Engagement/Couples, Personal — May 3, 2014

I have always loved something about the desert, but I didn’t know what it was because I had never been there.  I got to go earlier this year…and I probably still can’t fully explain what I love about it…I love the colours, I love the emptiness, and I love the mystery of it all.  And somewhere in the midst of all that, there is something romantic about the desert – I don’t mean romantic to be in a ‘lovey dovey’ way but more that I found my dreams and imagination went wild and I felt like I could do absolutely anything that I wanted…

I can’t wait to go back!!

Anyway, this story isn’t just about me, it is about the cool people we got to meet on our travels.  This is Nikki and Artur.  They live in the UK and were just about the coolest people I have ever met on a trip because they were up for a last second photoshoot (with no warning by the way) just before the sun went down behind the sand dunes.  Great job guys and thanks again for letting me take these photos!
