Sandi & Abdulla’s destination wedding in Cairo

If anyone had told us a a couple of years ago that we’d fly to Cairo to shoot a wedding there, we’d probably laugh at their face and say “that’s impossible”. We’re no stars, we’re no photography gurus, so how would we go to Egypt to shoot a wedding?

It all started with Sandi saying “we were wondering…we like you so much, why don’t we just book you for the wedding?” and between plane tickets, phone calls and a ton of excitement, we landed in Cairo to be welcomed with open arms, shiny eyes and hearts full. It were days that went by super fast and the memories we bring are packed full of warmth, emotion and love – a room with a view to the pyramids, a first look, a Zaffa and dinner and cake with a Nile view. Going to Cairo to shoot Sandi and Abdulla’s destination wedding was an adventure we’ll never forget!

Casamento de Sandi e Abdulla no Cairo

Se alguém nos dissesse há uns anos que iríamos voar para o Cairo para fotografar um casamento, provavelmente rir-nos-íamos histericamente dessa pessoa terminando o episódio com um “isso é quase impossível”. Não somos vedetas, não somos personalidades da fotografia, como haveríamos de ir parar ao Egipto a fotografar?

Tudo começou com a Sandi a dizer-nos “estávamos a pensar… se gostamos tanto de vocês porque é que não havemos de vos contratar para o casamento?” e entre essa frase, bilhetes de avião, telefonemas e muita excitação, aterrámos no Cairo para ser recebidos de braços abertos, olhos brilhantes e coração cheio. Foram dias que passaram rápido e as memórias que trouxemos connosco vêm embrulhadas de muito calor, muita emoção e muito carinho – um quarto com vista para as pirâmides, um first look, uma Zaffa, um jantar e corte do bolo com vista para o Nilo. Ir ao Cairo fotografar o casamento da Sandi e do Abdulla foi uma aventura que nunca mais vamos esquecer!
