Where it all begun...5 years ago; my very first wedding I captured in the magical Dubai. I had no idea about the wedding industry or what a wedding would entail. But what an amazing experience it was. Since then, my love for photography and weddings has further grown.Fast forward, 5 years later, many weddings and experiences later, I am back in the place where it all began. This place remains so special, the magic of the desert. So proud of where I stand now as a photographer, how that one wedding 5 years ago changed everything.-—————————————————————————————Where it all begun...5 jaar geleden; mijn allereerste bruiloft heb ik vast gelegd in het magische Dubai. Ik had geen idee over de wedding industry of hoe een bruiloft er aan toe zou gaan. Maar wat een gave ervaring was dat. Sindsdien is mijn liefde voor fotografie en de bruiloften verder uitgegroeid.Fast forward, 5 jaar later, vele bruiloften en ervaringen ben ik terug in de plek waar het allemaal begonnen is. Wat een bijzondere plek blijft dit, de magie van de woestijn. Zo trots op waar ik nu sta als fotograaf, hoe die ene bruiloft 5 jaar geleden alles veranderd heeft.#wedding #dubai #dubaiphotographer

Welcome to our desert photoshoot page, where we will explore the enchanting world of desert photography, its significance, and how to make the most of your time in the magnificent Dubai desert. The desert is a place of unparalleled beauty and serenity, offering a unique backdrop for a photoshoot. In this article, we will discuss what a desert photoshoot in Dubai entails, why it is important when to plan it, and how to prepare for a memorable and stunning session. We are thrilled to assist you in capturing the timeless splendor of the desert.


A desert photoshoot is a professional photo session set against the striking landscape of the desert. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the stark beauty and dramatic scenery of the dunes, capturing the golden hues of the sand and the endless sky. These photos immortalize the tranquil and awe-inspiring moments in the desert, creating lasting memories that highlight the unique charm of this natural wonder.


Desert photography is important for several reasons. Firstly, it allows individuals to experience and appreciate the serene and majestic environment of the desert. The vast, open spaces and unique lighting conditions create an ideal setting for breathtaking photos. Secondly, these photos serve as a tangible way to document your adventure and connection with nature. They are a testament to the beauty and stillness found in the desert, a place where time seems to stand still. Thirdly, a desert photoshoot provides an opportunity to create artistic and dramatic images that are both striking and evocative. Finally, these photos serve as beautiful reminders of a unique experience, perfect for sharing with friends and family or displaying in your home.


The ideal time to plan a desert photoshoot in Dubai is late in the afternoon. During these times, the lighting is soft and golden, perfect for capturing the ethereal beauty of the dunes. The cooler temperatures also make it more comfortable to shoot. We recommend booking in advance as our schedule can be busy. Consider scheduling your session during the golden hour—the hour before sunset—to capture the most magical light. We will pick you up around Marina and will drop you off there as well.


Choosing the right photographer is crucial to capturing the essence of your desert experience. At Shots by Charlotte, you will work with professionals experienced in desert photography who understand the nuances of lighting, composition, and styling that work best in this unique environment. Here are some tips:

  • Explore Our Portfolio: Take a look at our previous work to get a sense of our style and the types of images we create. Our Instagram is also a great place to see our latest shoots.
  • Schedule a Consultation: Feel free to schedule a no-obligation online meeting to discuss your expectations for the photoshoot and ensure there is a good connection between us. You can schedule a meeting here.


Preparing for your desert photoshoot is essential to ensure you get the most out of your session. Here are some steps to consider:

  • Wardrobe: Choose clothing that complements the natural colors of the desert. Flowing dresses, neutral tones, and light fabrics work well. Consider wearing layers that can add depth and movement to your photos.
  • Props and Accessories: Props such as blankets, lanterns, or vintage suitcases can add a personal touch to your photos. Feel free to bring anything meaningful to you; we’re happy to incorporate your preferences.
  • Location: The vast Dubai desert offers numerous stunning locations for your shoot. Whether you prefer the towering dunes or a secluded spot, we will find the perfect setting to match your vision.
  • Hair and Makeup: Professional hair and makeup can enhance your overall look and ensure you feel confident during the shoot. This is by no means necessary, but can be a nice addition if you like this.


As skilled desert photographers and videographers, we know how to capture the tranquility and majesty of the desert. We focus on creating a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere during the shoot. Some common themes and styles in desert photography include:

  • Natural and Spontaneous: These photos aim to capture authentic moments and emotions, often using natural light to highlight the beauty of the environment.
  • Artistic and Dramatic: Using the dramatic backdrop of the desert, these photos emphasize the unique shapes and textures of the dunes.
  • Couples and Families: Many desert photoshoots include couples or families, highlighting their connection amidst the serene landscape.

We always like to create a fun atmosphere where we have fun. We try to make you as comfortable as possible, even if you don’t stand in front of the camera a lot, we will give you a lot of suggestions and help with your posing. Our motto is: if you’re having fun, and you feel comfortable, the pictures will be pretty with almost no effort. That’s why we focus a lot on being relaxed and giving you a fun time, so the pictures will speak for themselves.


After your desert photoshoot, we will carefully edit and retouch the images and videos to ensure they look their best. This process may include color correction, enhancing details, and adjusting lighting. Our goal is to create a collection of photos and videos that reflect the beauty and emotion of your desert experience. Our style is very bohemian and dreamy, capturing the true essence of the desert.


Once your desert photos are ready, it’s time to decide how you want to preserve and share these precious memories. Common options include:

  • Prints and Albums: Consider creating a physical album or framed prints to display in your home. These tangible items serve as daily reminders of your unique experience.
  • Digital Images: Digital files make it easy to share with friends and family via social media or email. You can also use them to create custom announcements or thank-you cards.

We can create prints and physical albums for you. We’re happy to discuss the possibilities for this in a short online meeting. The photos will, of course, be shared in a beautiful online gallery for you to download, and the video will be sent via WeTransfer and, unless you have objections, uploaded to YouTube.

What we truly love is making a small album, consisting of 8 pages in a flat-lay style book of 20×20 centimeters, and shipping this to your parents, brothers, sisters, or grandparents. We can make these professionally for a small fee and ship them anywhere in the world.


In conclusion, a desert photoshoot is not just about taking pictures; it’s about celebrating the unique beauty and significance of the desert. These photos become cherished mementos and serve as a testament to the tranquility and majesty of the dunes. Whether you choose a natural, spontaneous, or dramatic style, desert photography allows you to capture and preserve this extraordinary experience for generations to come. When you look back on these images in the future, you will be reminded of the awe and serenity that filled your heart during this magical time.


What sets us apart from other photographers is that we give quite a number of photos. You’ll receive at least 30 edited photos from your Dubai desert photoshoot. If it turns out that we have more great photos of your shoot, you will also get those at no additional charge.

And what would our service be without videos? We handle all sessions together, and the Dubai desert photoshoot is no exception. In addition to all the beautiful photos, you’ll also receive a stunning video. Depending on the footage, this can range from 45 to 60 seconds.

Our videographer captures the entire shoot, ensuring that every magical moment is preserved on video. You will receive a beautifully edited video in Instagram Reel format, lasting between 45 seconds to one minute, perfect for sharing on your social media platforms.
