Destination Wedding Photographer Marrakech, Morocco
Think of the most perfect, romantic and challenging wedding destination – Marrakech is probably near the top of your list! When Shahad and Jack invited me to photograph their wedding, I knew being a Marrakech wedding photographer was going to be both a wonderful experience and very hard work.
The hard work included the heat. I was shooting the pre-wedding party photographs as well as the wedding day, and as the temperature soared, it was a real blend of fun and frustration to capture all the great moments and also to make sure that the light wasn’t blinding or full of glare and that the guests looked happy and relaxed, not squinting into the sun or overheated.
Morocco wedding photographer secrets revealed
Photographing a villa wedding brings its own issues, although as an experienced wedding photographer I know how to address any little glitches to make the day run smoothly. On the plus side, it’s much easier to get intimate, romantic photographs. Shahad’s beautiful wedding dress and full veil became the focus of her thoughtful and tender pre-wedding shots, whilst Jack’s preparations show his confident nature and the intense friendship he has with those closest to him. It was a hot day for shirts and jackets though, with the temperature climbing to 46ºC!
The wedding photography was an absolute pleasure, light with moments of high emotion to create wow-worthy wedding pictures. However, the amazing architecture of Morocco came to our aid and the design of the stunning villa Jnane Tamsna gave us plenty of shady corners and cool areas where I could take wedding photographs with the bride and groom.
And then to we moved on to the celebrations – with guests from around the world, wonderful food, live music and laughter it was always going to be easy to catch moments of pure excitement and the wedding album shows just how lively the evening becameSec. Shooter: Alejandro Diaz Photographer
