Dubai Professional Photographers: Commercial Photography
01st November 2011
Commercial Product Shoot

Commercial photography is a great way to promote your business and services. I recently did a commercial shoot for an events company who specialise in organising a wide range of events such as weddings and children's birthday parties. The aim of the shoot was to capture creative product shots which could then used on their website and promotional literature. Below is a flavour of some of the shots captured.









If you would like to book me for a commercial shoot please either contact me via the email razzleberryphotography@gmail.com or you can call me on +971 (0)55 591 9912

Dubai Maternity Photographers: Maternity Photo Shoot
24th October 2011
Park Maternity Shoot!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing mum-to-be Rita and her husband, to capture this special time in their life before their baby arrives next month. Such a lovely couple and it was delight to capture her pregnancy in these beautiful shots below.

More information about my Maternity, Newborn and Baby packages can be found here.







Whether you are pregnant and want some contemporary pregnancy portraits of you and your family, or if you would like to capture some newborn baby photos. Newborn babies are so beautiful and as an experienced baby photographer, I can take some unique pictures for your family to treasure. We can incorporate any other children for their photos as a family or you could have separate childrens pictures. Maternity photo shoots can be done either within the comfort of your own home or in a location of your choice in Dubai. This gives a great natural feel to the final pregnancy photos rather than when done in a studio. There are great prices for maternity and pregnancy photography if you are pregnant and would like to have pictures taken during pregnancy. I can also offer newborn baby photography as a package with your pregnancy photo shoot if you would like to take advantage of great savings. If not, baby photography can be booked separately, again to be taken at your home for yours and the babies comfort. There are great promotions for purchasing a series of baby photoshoots to capture them as they grow up and develop through their first 12 months. Take advantage to use a professional photographer to capture your new baby.

If you would like to book either for either maternity / pregnancy photography or a new born baby or childrens photography session, please either contact me via the email razzleberryphotography@gmail.com or you can call me on +971 (0)55 591 9912

Choosing the right Wedding Photographer can be a difficult decision, it is one of the many things that you must organise as part of your wedding day, yet arguably the most important.

Our simple checklist below can be used to help the bride and groom in their search for a Dubai Wedding Photographer and Videographer and hopefully avoid some common pitfalls when making your final selection:

UAE Wedding Photography FAQ's
07th September 2011
Wedding Photography Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why should we choose you?
A. Choosing us is a very personal choice, I find that most couples choose us as their Wedding Photographer because they like our photography style, we get on well when we first meet and they appreciate good quality photography and products. Being well organised, reliable and professional whist at the same time being easy to get along with goes a long way , that’s why we are lucky to get repeat work from many of our clients after the wedding day which is a testament to what we are doing.

Q. What happens after we book our wedding with you?
A. Once you have booked and have paid the deposit, the date is booked with us. You will receive a booking confirmation document which confirms your package, with dates and times of the approximate schedule for the day. We will probably have already met you at an initial meeting to discuss your wedding day in general, but we will set up another meeting with you to go through the details and to find out what your specific requirements are for the big day. We can also go through our standard wedding agreement, this isn’t anything to worry about, it’s a very simple to under stand document that explains what both parties are to expect from the other.

If you are having a full day wedding, the date is kept entirely free so that we do not take any other bookings for that day, ensuring total dedication for you and your wedding day.


Q. Can we still organise our wedding photography with you without meeting?
A. We regularly have clients who not resident in the UAE and are not able to meet us before they arrive. We can organise everything through email and by phone to make sure we have gone through all the details of your wedding as we would have done when meeting face to face, we aim to give you the same top service even if we are not able to meet you before your wedding.

Q. What is the deposit and how do we make payment?
A. We take a 20% deposit to secure your date, with the balance payment being made either on the wedding day or before it. Payment can be made in either cash, cheque or via a direct bank transfer.

Q. How Many Photos will I get?
A. This is a common question and in our opinion can be misleading when considering your wedding photographer. Be careful of those who are offering a high number of pictures in order to secure bookings, in all likelihood you will end up receiving a larger quantity of lower quality and repetitive images. Similarly, those who are only offering a very small number of photos, you will more than likely be charged heavily for additional photos after the wedding when you decide that the number of photos they have provided is not enough. We try to strike a balance, making sure you have plenty of good quality photos to choose from. The final amount of photos will depend on how many hours you have booked us for and what package you have chosen. On average for a full day you can expect to receive up to 500.

Q. How Will I receive my Photos?
A. As standard all wedding couples will receive their final images professionally edited in both colour and black and white on a reusable branded USB. The images will be in high resolution for printing, all watermark free. You will also receive a free private password protected web gallery where you can log in and view your images along with family and friends if you wish.

Our exclusive albums are the optimum way to display your wedding photographs, they will really look their best when printed and bound in one of our handmade Italian albums. If you have chosen a package which includes an album, we will design the album from scratch in house in coordination with you.


Q. When will we receive our photos?
A. It will generally take 3-4 weeks for your photos to be ready. For your album, to design, review, alter and manufacture it can be around 10 weeks from the time your have selected your photos. The durations may vary depending on the time of year and the length of time it takes to finalise your album design. All albums are hand made and shipped from Italy so all these factors can vary the overall duration.

Q. We don’t really like to pose for our photos, is that a problem?
A. Many couples feel nervous or they just feel a bit silly posing for photographs. This is completely normal and common so don’t let it spoil your day, we can make sure that posed shots are kept to a minimum and for the ones where you are posing we’ll make you feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera. We always try to incorporate more fun and natural shots in the couple portraits, as well as the candid pictures taken throughout the day. We would still recommend allocating around an hour during the daytime for some intimate couple portrait pictures that can be styled according to your taste and preference.

Q. How far in advance do I need to book?
A. Due to the climate in the UAE, the popular wedding months are from September to April with the weekend dates during the coolest months booking up early. We would recommend that booking your photographer should be near the top of your list, next to booking your wedding venue.

Q. What is your style of photography?
A. Our natural photography style is to combine modern and contemporary with a candid or photojournalistic style. This gives you the perfect blend of our signature portraits of the bride and groom with the fun and spontaneous candid images taken throughout the day. This tells the true story of your wedding day and will capture the real emotions as they happen. Of course, we often get specific requests from our clients which we are more than happy to accommodate, we offer you the choice of how you would like to remember your wedding day with any specific photographic style that you may prefer.

What we will do on your wedding day is let you enjoy it, it’s YOUR wedding day and we are there as privileged guests. We do not do arrogant and we do not do bossy, we will record the day with beautiful pictures and just let you simply enjoy it.


Q. Have you worked at our wedding venue previously?
A. We have been to the majority of wedding venues here, so more than likely we have photographed at your venue. With all the development in the UAE new venues are always appearing so if we havent been to your venue before, we will always make sure that we have visited the venue before your wedding to plan the environment and photographic opportunities.

Q. How many times can we meet prior to the wedding?
A. We will generally meet initially to discuss your requirements and to establish whether we are your preferred photographer. Once commissioned then we will meet a second time to go through specifics of the wedding day, what your aspirations are and discuss the rough schedule. We are also happy to meet at the venue if you would like to go through anything at the venue or look at any particular locations where your want some photos to be taken.

Q. Do you use professional photography equipment?
A. We upgrade our photography equipment to ensure that it is state of the art and you receive the benefits of modern photography.

Q. What areas do you cover?
A. We work predominantly in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, but travel internationally for commissions.

Q. What if I want more than one photographer?
A. Having more than one photographer is a great way of getting additional pictures and capturing the events from another viewpoint. If you would like to add an additional photographer just let us know.

Q. Why are some photographers twice or even three times your price?
A. Well that’s a difficult one to answer, I suppose they would need to tell you that. We focus on providing top quality photography at a realistic price, we do not take advantage of where we are in the world by charging more for what we do than we would anywhere else. Working without a studio location means our overheads are less than they would be otherwise. What matters to us is that you get the best possible pictures from your wedding day, we believe that our rates are fair and that our final photographs are some of the best in the area.

Q. What if you are sick and cannot attend on the wedding day?
A. In the unlikely event that I am not personally able to attend your wedding day due to illness or other unaccountable situation, a replacement photographer will be on hand to step in. It is a rare scenario, equal to the chances of either the bride or groom being taken ill.

Q. You have set packages but can I change some of the details?
A. Our packages have been developed over time to represent the most popular set of services and products that our couples have wanted. They are based on what couples actually need rather than include for things which you don’t, that way you are not charged for something you don’t want or need.
If any of the packages are not exactly what you are looking for, we are more than happy for a bespoke package to be developed based on your specific requirements. Get in touch and we can discuss it further.


Q. Who will be the actual person taking our wedding photography?
A. Tom will be the person you meet before the wedding and the person at the wedding. This gives you the assurance that you will have the photographer you have met and the style you have seen represented on the website. We do not sub contract wedding bookings to any other photographers.

Q. What editing do you do to the photographs?
A. Our photography style and aim is to provide you with beautiful, natural and honest photographs, this is captures in the way that the photo is taken using the light, location, pose and composition – rather than photoshop tricks.

We colour correct images and ensure that exposure, and other elements of the photo are adjusted to obtain the most pleasing results. We also tidy up any images we feel is necessary and spend a little more time on the key couple shots to make the overall appearances more appealing.

We do provide some unique digitally enhanced and creative artistic effects on some images if suitable, these are done by request so please just ask.


Q. I have seen some wedding pictures that I love, can you do some the same?
A. Of course, if you have a particular style, some examples that you have seen just send copies before the wedding day and we will do our best to emulate them and provide something similar.
Dubai Baby Photographers: Newborn Baby Pictures
02nd September 2011
Newborn Baby Photography

I have been busy with lots of newborn baby photoshoots recently. Taking baby photos takes time and patience, allowing time for feeds, changes and plenty of cuddles when they become unsettled between shots. To get the signature posed pictures of your baby, maybe with some props, it is essential for your baby to be sleeping. From one of my recent baby and family photography sessions, I got some stunning close up detailed baby pictures that mum and dad will be able to look back on in years to come. It is amazing to see the details and the tiny features of your baby captured with some professional photographs.







Whether you are pregnant and want some contemporary pregnancy portraits of you and your family, or if you would like to capture some newborn baby photos. Newborn babies are so beautiful and as an experienced baby photographer, I can take some unique pictures for your family to treasure. We can incorporate any other children for their photos as a family or you could have separate childrens pictures. Maternity photo shoots can be done either within the comfort of your own home or in a location of your choice in Dubai. This gives a great natural feel to the final pregnancy photos rather than when done in a studio. There are great prices for maternity and pregnancy photography if you are pregnant and would like to have pictures taken during pregnancy. I can also offer newborn baby photography as a package with your pregnancy photo shoot if you would like to take advantage of great savings. If not, baby photography can be booked separately, again to be taken at your home for yours and the babies comfort. There are great promotions for purchasing a series of baby photoshoots to capture them as they grow up and develop through their first 12 months.

Dubai Wedding Photography - Adam & Hayley
17th August 2011
Wedding Photography

Despite it being the normally quieter summer period, it has been very busy recently and we haven’t had the time to update the blog in a few weeks.

In preparation for the upcoming Dubai wedding season, I just wanted to share some wedding pictures from a recent wedding in Dubai.

Adam and Hayley’s friends had arranged for me to be at the wedding, so it was a surprise for them both when I arrived at the church. We were a little late starting the ceremony, which was held at the Holy Trinity Church in Dubai, but it didn’t take long before vows were being exchanged. After the ceremony it was time to relax and everyone enjoyed the food and drinks at the aviation club, it was a scorching day but we managed to snatch just a few minutes outside to capture some wedding photos of the happy couple.

It was a pleasure to be part of Adam and Hayley’s wedding day, they are a great couple and I sincerely hope that they have a long and happy life together.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi Photographer - Photoshoot Preparation
09th August 2011
Preparing for your Photoshoot

Before the day of your photo shoot, there are a few things you might want to consider….

1. Style.
Think about what type of photographs you are looking for from your photoshoot, do you want natural candid photos of your family in the park, maybe you want formal pictures as a record at a family event? Think about what you expect in advance and let us know, if you have seen any pictures that you particularly love, any that you would like to try and recreate with something similar, please let us know and send some examples before the shoot.

2. Location.
Location photoshoots are great as they give you unrestricted freedom to move and explore different areas. They will generally be more natural and spontaneous in their style. In the UAE we have some amazing weather and great locations to take advantage of outdoor photoshoots all year round. When deciding on the location for your shoot, imagine what these photos will look like. What’s in the background? How is the lighting? What feelings will these images elicit? What kind of colours do you envision? Think about other people’s portraits and pictures that you have seen and like the look or feel of. What did you like about them? What didn’t you like about them? The answers to these questions will be different for everyone, but will ultimately determine the perfect location for your photoshoot.

3. Time of Day.
Light is everything with photography, so the time of day that you plan to have your photos taken in will greatly affect the final product. The best times for outdoor photos are definitely early morning and dusk, especially on a very sunny day which is most of the time here in the UAE. When the sun is at its strongest, from around 11 to 3pm but this can be even longer, the light is very strong and isn’t flattering on a persons face so ideally its best to avoid these times if the pictures have to be taken in direct sunlight. On a cloudy, overcast day, outdoor photos can be taken at any time. That being said, even on the sunniest of days, a little flexibility and creativity (and some open shade) can produce some great photos at any time. Just be aware that there may be fewer outdoor photo options at 2pm than at 8am or 5pm.

You’ll also want to take into account your family’s schedule. With young children especially, nap times and feeding times need to be factored into your planning. A hungry, tired two-year-old is not going to be interested in holding her older brother’s hand for a photographed walk in the park. Even adults can get a little grumpy and impatient on empty stomachs, so making sure the time works for your whole family is key.


4. What to Wear.
The important thing isn’t to match necessarily, but rather to not clash. Solid neutrals are always a safe, easy choice, but you can have fun with colours as well. First and foremost, you want these photos to reflect your family’s personality. Try to avoid busy patterns however as these tend not to show as well as solid colours on the final photos. By keeping your clothing simple, it allows the focus to stay on you rather than be drawn to the patterns in fabrics. Clothing should be free of logos, pictures and writing.

For maternity shoots, you might want to consider a buttoned shirt or blouse, soft linen or cotton fabric works well. Also, a cardigan or sweater that can be fastened above the belly is great for showing your baby bump too. A simple t-shirt that is fitted can also look nice, just remember that what ever you decide its best not to have tops which are too lose so that your belly is no longer the focus. If you decide to go with jeans or soft linen trousers, both look great but make sure that they are not maternity wear as the panels do not photograph well, wear your normal trousers which can be pulled under your belly. Wraps or shawls are fantastic as they can be used as long shirts or to cover up any areas that you would prefer not be on display.

Keep your children and babies attire simple and coordinated with yours, make sure that their eyes, nose, fingers and toes are well groomed. Plenty of lotion to make sure there is no flaky skin or sleep in their eyes for the close ups.

Also, remember to pay attention to the little things. If you don’t really like that old watch you always wear, take it off for the photoshoot. Keep in mind that your shoes, and possibly your socks, may be in the photos. Remember that in a lot of family photos, children are being held and people are holding hands. If having well manicured fingernails is important to you, this is a detail you may want to consider before the shoot.

Finally, if you’ve chosen a location that presents an opportunity to get dirty, you may want to consider bringing an extra shirt for your little one, and perhaps even for yourself.


5. Hair and Makeup.
Hair and makeup should be clean and classic. Recommendations for professional makeup artists can be advised and is recommended.

6. Preparing the Children.
While mum and dad might be excited at the idea of a fun family photoshoot, the children may not be too sure what’s going on.

Perhaps you can sit with your children and show them previous family photos. You can point out how small they were back then, and point out the need to take new photos now that they have gotten so big.

Go over the expectations with them. While it might seem natural to us to relax, smile and follow the photographer instructions, it may not come so easily to a four-year-old. If you are having a candid photoshoot, explain to your child what you will be doing (ie: walking in the park) and that a photographer will be snapping photos.
If you want photos of them smiling and looking at the camera, it’s important to make sure they understand this.

The idea is to get them as excited about this photoshoot as you are, and avoid any uncomfortable moments (when possible) during the photoshoot. The more prepared your children are for the photoshoot, the less stress there will be for you (and them), and everyone will be able to relax and have fun with it.


7. Have Fun!
Remember not to get so preoccupied with the planning and the details that you forget to have fun. When you’re in the moment, forget about the camera, forget about the technicalities, and just be. Be yourselves, laugh together, love together, smile together, be silly together. Because those are the moments you will want to capture forever.

Leave the rest to me!

24th June 2011
Choosing the right Wedding Photographer can be a difficult decision, it is one of the many things that you must organise as part of your wedding day, yet arguably the most important. The venue, the flowers, the dress, the cake, the guests and most importantly the both of you will all be captured in your photographs and will be looked back upon in years to come in your wedding album and wedding video.

Our simple checklist below can be used to help the bride and groom in their search for a Abu Dhabi Wedding Photographer and Videographer and hopefully avoid some common pitfalls when making your final selection:

Dubai Pregnancy Photographers: Maternity Photo Shoot
24th June 2011
Maternity Photo Shoot

Photography is the perfect way to remember your pregnancy and capture that special time in your life. Below are some of my favourite photos from a recent maternity shoot.









Whether you are pregnant and want some contemporary pregnancy portraits of you and your family, or if you would like to capture some newborn baby photos. Newborn babies are so beautiful and as an experienced baby photographer, I can take some unique pictures for your family to treasure. We can incorporate any other children for their photos as a family or you could have separate childrens pictures. Maternity photo shoots can be done either within the comfort of your own home or in a location of your choice in Dubai. This gives a great natural feel to the final pregnancy photos rather than when done in a studio. There are great prices for maternity and pregnancy photography if you are pregnant and would like to have pictures taken during pregnancy. I can also offer newborn baby photography as a package with your pregnancy photo shoot if you would like to take advantage of great savings. If not, baby photography can be booked separately, again to be taken at your home for yours and the babies comfort. There are great promotions for purchasing a series of baby photoshoots to capture them as they grow up and develop through their first 12 months. Take advantage to use one of the best professional photographers in Dubai with very competitive prices.

If you would like to book either for either maternity / pregnancy photography or a new born baby or childrens photography session, please either contact me via the email razzleberryphotography@gmail.com or you can call me on +971 (0)55 591 9912
