Dressed to the nines in the desert, stunning couple Danya and Eric decided to capture their engagement photos abroad - a nod to their whirlwind long-distance love. Beginning the next chapter of their lives with a journey across the world, Flytographer Natelee joined this adventurous pair on a wild ride into the desert of Dubai to capture these jaw-dropping engagement photos.
Danya: "Eric proposed to me in August, and days later I moved to Michigan for a fellowship at the University of Michigan. We haven't had the opportunity to spend enough time together to take care of any wedding planning! In December, we visited Turkey as a part of my fellowship, and since we were traveling, I thought it would be a great idea to visit a friend who had recently moved to Dubai. Some friends suggested we do a desert safari; after doing some research, I knew the desert would be the perfect location for our engagement shoot!
"I was extremely nervous about the shoot, but Eric and our photographer, Natelee, did a great job making me feel comfortable. During our shoot, it hit me that this is the man I'll be spending the rest of my life with. Imagine that overwhelming feeling coupled with the Dubai desert sunset - it was magical! This shoot was our favorite part about Dubai. We'll never forget running on the dunes while in formal wear (which isn't as easy as we made it look)! We're so glad Natalee captured those moments.
"Natalee was amazing and captured exactly what we were looking for during our Dubai shoot. She was also extremely fun and easy to work with. She has a great eye and our shoot never seemed unnatural or forced!"
