Amazing Photoshoot in Marrakech and Essaouira

This Photoshoot in Marrakech was amazing! One of the things we love most about what we do is the couples we get to meet from all around the world. As Morocco continues to boom as a tourist destination, we find ourselves lucky to get to work with such a fun variety of couples who come to us to get a photoshoot in Marrakech. Adeline first reached out to us when she and her fiance Richard were planning their holiday in Morocco. Recently engaged, Richard and Adeline will be getting married next March in Singapore, where they are both from.


This was their first trip to Morocco and they decided to also use it as an opportunity to get some engagement photos and document their experiences in Morocco. We met during their stay in Marrakech and Essaouira and they were very keen for a photoshoot at Marrakech. For both photoshoots, makeup artists, and hairstylists, Anna Ayshara was there who did Adeline’s hair and makeup and accompanied us during the photoshoots in case she needs any touch-ups or adjustments.

For their Marrakech photoshoot, we started with a few photos in the medina and then went to Jardin Majorelle. The infamous blues and yellows of the garden were a fun backdrop for Richard and Adeline’s formal wedding look. From there we headed to Le Jardin Secret where there were some beautiful tile work and Moroccan architecture. We made a little pit stop at Cafe Atay as they have a beautiful rooftop view of the medina.

We enjoyed a little break over juice and snacks and Richard and Adeline showed us their photos from their proposal in Bali and retold us the story! We were very impressed by their story and loved how things went between them. We tried to give them some more beautiful memories during their photoshoot at Marrakech.

We captured some more fun medina photos on our way back to the car. The medina also presents fun photo opportunities and ways to be creative. Richard and Adeline were always up for whatever we suggested! Our last stop for the day was at the Marrakech palmeraie for sunset. These photos are probably my favorite from the day. I mean, the palmeraie, camels, sunset, beautiful couple in wedding attire…what is not to love?!

The camel even behaved calmly and it was a gorgeous sunset. We love the mix of romantic photos and just fun candid shots of Richard and Adeline. It was the perfect way to end a fun day of a photoshoot at Marrakech.

We met them again two days later, this time in Essaouira. Essaouira is one of my favorite cities in Morocco and its laidback seaside vibe is such a contrast to the hustle and bustle of the red city (Marrakech).

We started the photoshoot at their riad, Salut Maroc. The decor and colors at Salut Maroc are so unique and made for a really fun backdrop. If you’re looking for a cool place to stay in Essaouira we’d definitely recommend that you check them out! From there we explored the medina, taking advantage of Essaouira’s alleys and beautiful doors.

After Richard and Adeline made an outfit change, we went to ramparts for some photos and then down to the harbor and the beach. We ended at sunset right near the walls of the medina along the ocean. We love this spot and we were delighted to see another beautiful sunset, this time over the ocean. Everyone enjoyed the day and we were also thrilled to be a part of such a marvelous day.

We had so much fun getting to know Richard and Adeline and we love how the photoshoot at Marrakech and Essaouira captured some of their experiences in Morocco!

Thanks for visiting us!

Unfortunately we are no longer in Morocco and are taking a break from wedding photography.

We want to thank all our couples over the years who we have had the opportunity to capture their special love stories! We feel so honoured to have been apart of your special day! 

Feel free to continue looking around our website. 

For us we are taking a break and returning to North America for a period of time, after that we intend to move to Italy (Lord willing). 

Thanks again,

Richard and Marisa
