spending a couple of days in the wonderful Marrakech and in one of the most beautiful Riads, I met the spanish couple Bibi and Bob. They where so in love with each other and planned a couple shoot. So this was the plan until then.
I tell ya, that was an experience I would never had expected in my lifetime that this would happen to me. as a destination wedding photographer that was like hitting the jackpot.
But Bob, told me in a secret moment (Bibi wasn’t around), that he had an amazing surprise for her love. At this moment I was getting extremly excited, cause I thought he wants to ask her the big question (Marry Me!!!!). I visualized in my minds eye only hearts and diamond rings. But then he added that he’s got a gift for his love, very special shoes. My excitement for having an engagement shooting in a beautiful destination like Marrakech went down to earth, not so much, but a little (all joking aside). No matter at all I loved to do this shoot so much with this two lovebirds. So he would like to merge the shoot with this special gift. O.k. why not, let’s do it. That sounds pretty creative for a man because he had made some preparations for this. Bob had sent the shoes from Spain to the location, he wanted to surprise Bibi. Wow, I thought to myself, that’s going to be very cool making such a extraordinary gift.
So when the shooting started I was so overwhelmed by their kindness, the lovingly and respectful way they were with each other. There was an exeptional aura of pure love and beauty surrounding them. They forgot everything around them and followed just their hearts. It was such a joy to cover this beautyful couple in this wonderful Riad Laila (that offered a perfect hideaway for couples in love for relaxing a few days or maybe spending their honeymoon.
Love this beautiful place Riad Laila in the heart of Marrakech, near the Souk!
After strolling through the colorful streets of Marrakech we arrived at this breathtaking location, Bob has chosen for his secret plan. Bibi didn’t know what anything about his plan, just to have a delicious diner with her love. We all were deeply impressed by this stunning location The Sultana Hotel and then the big moment finally approached.
They both sat together and he asked the big question to her while giving her the exceptional shoes, she ever dreamed of. Her eyes were wide-opended and then she only had tears of joy and said yessss!
At the first moment I was a little bit confused, cause there was no ring just shoes. But this engagement was pretty special, because instead of a ring he gave her very specail shoes. Finally she explained that she don’t like rings, so this High-heels are her engagement ring.
I love happy ends!
Thank you Bibi and Bob for being part of your exceptional day! Wish you all the best
