From the beach to the desert, and everything else in between, Dubai offers perfect settings for a dreamy pre-wedding photo shoot. This city also offers some of the most luxurious resorts whose environs provide stunning backdrops. One such property is the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray where every nook and corner offers something visually unique. That’s why Ricky and Tanya chose this gorgeous property for their pre-wedding photo shoot, and here, she shares some exciting highlights of their experience.
How We Met
“Ricky and I met in an arranged marriage setup. A common family friend introduced us, and Ricky came from Pune to meet me in New Delhi. In the first meeting itself, we sat and chatted for four hours. Time just flew! I think we got along very well because we have very similar natures. We both like cracking stupid jokes and are extremely family oriented. There were so many instances where we would end up saying the same thing at the same time. The connection just happened without us even realizing. Once he went back to Pune, we spoke over the phone and even on FaceTime for a couple of weeks. After a while, I went to Pune. He showed me the city and made me meet his friends. We had a great time, and all this continued for a couple of months till we finally agreed on taking the next step. By this time, we had fallen for each other. Finally, we told our parents, and our families met, and all went well! And here we are – getting married in less than a month!”
“Ricky and I were planning a short holiday before the wedding only so that we could go shopping somewhere and simply relax before the hectic phase started. We thought Dubai was the best destination as it was just a 3-hour flight away. We were running out of time and there were so many things to do back home. So, when we were planning this holiday, it just struck me that we could do a shoot in Dubai. Then, I started looking for locations. Since it is extremely hot there in July, we wanted a place where the interiors were extremely beautiful, and we found the best – Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. It is a beautiful and luxurious property with a regal vibe and offered everything we were looking for.”
“I had heard a lot about Imprint Studios as they had done some shoots for our family and friends in Dubai. We were very confident about them, and I’m so glad we chose them to do our photo shoot as I love our pictures. They knew precisely what Ricky and I wanted!”
“There wasn’t a particular theme that we followed. We included a beach, formal and semi-formal looks. The entire shoot was so much fun, and we were laughing like crazy all through it. When we stood fully dressed in our formal clothes with the fountain behind us, we felt like a king and queen. It is was a magical feeling!”
