I’m seriously still so in love with our Abu Dhabi engagement photos.
Daniel and I taught in the UAE for two years. It was a major changing point in our lives because it was the first time we lived together after three years of long distance, and it allowed us to pay off our collective 58k in student loans.
While we were there, our friend Ille offered to take desert engagement photos for us because one night at the infamous UAE brunches we got to talking about how I had a dream of Abu Dhabi engagement photos and she was dying to try out a desert shoot… it was fate.
The result was these absolutely stunning photos taken during sunset in the vast Empty Quarter of the UAE, the largest desert in the world.
The sunset, the camels, and the romantic atmosphere are pretty much guaranteed to get you daydreaming about planning your own Middle Eastern adventure!
Honestly, these desert engagement photos really just never fail to make me smile, so I just hope you enjoy them as much as Daniel and I do!
Don’t you wish that everyday life could be this magical and romantic all the time?
That’s part of why I love travel photography so much because when it’s done so well like these are it captures the daydream, the adventure, the feeling of anticipation that is so unique to exploring somewhere new… even just writing this is making me want to take a trip back there soon!
