Agadir Newborn Photoshoot

Agadir newborn photography by Paragon Expressions

It was such a pleasure to do our first Agadir newborn photoshoot. Especially as just a few months earlier we did a maternity photoshoot with the same family and it was wonderful to see this family of three grow into a family of four.

We did this newborn photoshoot when Ayleen was five weeks ago. Ayleen is already a little model, and we loved being able to capture her in these first few weeks of her life. Ayleen’s sister Charlyse was so sweet with her and we loved capturing this sister love. We also love the photos of Ayleen with her parents Florian and Audrey, and her grandmother, Patricia, was also present for a few photos.

Pauline from Brooklyn Mama’s did Audrey’s makeup and was at the photoshoot.

Newborns change so quickly, and it was so special to capture Ayleen in this newborn stage. We love all of the props that Audrey brought for this photoshoot. Is there anything cuter than a sleeping baby in a basket?! We had such a special time with this family.

Agadir Fashion Photoshoot with Sophie

Recently, we did a fashion photoshoot in Agadir with Sophie, a fashion blogger and personal stylist from Belgium.

Sophie is from Belgium, but came to Agadir on holiday and wanted a photoshoot of some new clothing and accessory items she is advertising for Danish designer Stella Nova, Lie. O Knitwear, Maison Hotel, and Une A Une. It was a really fun photoshoot and Sophie was up for anything we suggested!

For her first outfit, we started with some photos on the Agadir promenade and moved down to the shoreline. We love how perfectly the colors of the beach complimented her outfit.

For her second outfit, we took some photos along another side of the coastline where there is a small sand dune (who says you can’t get desert shots in Agadir!). The pinks in her outfit really popped with this backdrop and we love the juxtaposition of her outfit with the sand dunes.

We loved getting to know Sophie and hearing more about her business. If you’re looking for a personal stylist, you can check out her work here.

Sean & Sarah’s Wedding at Tikida Golf Palace

In October, we had the pleasure of doing the wedding photography and video for a wedding at Tikida Golf Palace in Agadir.

The Tikida Golf Palace in Agadir is a beautiful wedding venue and a photographer’s dream when it comes to photography locations.

The bride and groom, Sean and Sarah traveled from their home in London to have their wedding celebration in Agadir. Sean spent much of his life in Hong Kong, but has lived all over the world. Sarah is from Morocco, but grew up in France, which is where she and Sean met a few years ago. With so many places they’ve called home, they had friends and family travel in from all over to celebrate with them! A week before their wedding in Agadir, they held a small ceremony in London where they were officially married.

Pauline at Brooklyn Mama’s did Sarah’s hair and makeup and she looked stunning! We loved Sean’s expression when he first saw Sarah in her wedding gown! Before the wedding started, we were able to do private photoshoot with Sarah and Sean, followed by some family photos. We love when clients plan for these photos before their wedding so we can get some beautiful photos before it gets dark.

The wedding started with a cocktail hour around the pool. It was a great opportunity for guests to mingle and enjoy the beautiful evening. After the sunset, Sarah changed into a traditional takchita and she and Sean made their entrances in an amaria and mida.

Sarah then changed into another takchita for the meal, which included tajine and seafood pastilla. Following the meal there was dancing on Tikida’s outdoor terrace. There was a mix of traditional Moroccan music and popular international songs.

We love how Sarah and Sean created a wedding that included many of the Moroccan traditions but also mixed with some western style traditions. The wedding felt relaxed and intimate, guests from outside of Morocco were able to enjoy and experience many Moroccan wedding traditions. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Sean and Sarah and capturing their Agadir wedding!

Moussa & Hayley’s Sidi Ifni Wedding

We loved doing the wedding photography and video for a traditional Moroccan wedding in Sidi Ifni.

Moussa and Hayley’s wedding took place on a gorgeous September day on Sidi Ifni’s beautiful coastline. These two met on the Canary Islands, where they are also living. Moussa is from Morocco, the wedding was at his home in Sidi Ifni, and Hayley is from Scotland.

We love how they incorporated lots of elements from their home cultures and made their wedding uniquely theirs. Hayley’s mother and close friends traveled to Morocco to celebrate along Moussa’s family and friends. There was much dancing and laughter leading up to wedding and it carried on throughout the night.

Hayley wore four traditional takchitas and a white wedding gown. Hayley made her final entrance in her white wedding gown with her mother accompanying her to a bagpipe rendition of Amazing Grace. There were many happy tears as Hayley and Moussa exchanged rings and then had their first dance together.

The morning after Moussa and Hayley’s Sidi Ifni wedding, we did a romantic photoshoot with them on Legzira beach. It was a beautiful morning and we loved getting some photos of just the two of them.

For the beach photoshoot, Hayley wore her white wedding gown and Moussa wore his suite. Legzira’s remaining arch is the perfect backdrop for photos and we especially love the silhouette shots of them under the arch.

We shifted gears from romantic shots to some shots that really reflect Moussa and Hayley’s adventurous side as they opted to take a camel ride down the beach!

We had so much fun with Moussa and Hayley and it is so clear how well they compliment each other! We wish them all happiness in their marriage!

It was an incredibly special day and honor for us to do the wedding photography and video for this Sidi Ifni wedding.

Kevin & Sarah’s Elopement Photography in Marrakech

Elope in Marrakech – It was an honor to do the elopement photography in Marrakech at a private riad where Kevin and Sarah promised each other forever.

The excitement and anticipation they had for their first look is one of our favorites to date! Like out of a scene from a movie, Kevin stood on one end of the balcony, while across from him Sarah opened up one of the floor length windows.

For their first look, Sarah surprised Kevin with the song from Romeo and Juliet, “Kissing you”. Could there be a more perfect song for a balcony entrance?! And the expression on Kevin’s face when he first saw Sarah was just so full of emotion and awe.

After their first look, they went up to the roof where they exchanged the vows they had each written for each other. Quite honestly, they were some of the most meaningful vows we’ve heard.

With palm trees and quintessential Marrakech rooftops in the background, a soundtrack played of songs that are special to both of them and their relationship. At the end of their ceremony, they jumped over a broom together, which is an African American tradition dating back to the 19th century.

After the elopement we did a romantic photoshoot in their private riad. We love photographing elopements in Morocco, as there are so many beautiful private locations perfect for an intimate ceremony.

It was a tremendous honor to photograph such a significant day in their story together. We loved getting to know them and found them to be the most genuine and kind couple. The love that they have each other has deep roots and is the kind that impacts those around them. Everytime we look through their photos we find ourselves just grinning. Capturing love stories has to be one of the best jobs!

Are you to planning to elope in Marrakech? We’d love to be your Morocco elopement photographer!
