Elopement Photos in the Sahara Desert in Morocco

Adventure Wedding Photographer Africa, Elopement Photographer Morocco


It must be unbelievable to be alone on a sand dune in the middle of the desert, just you and your beloved one, you look deep into the eyes of each other, it's completely silent around you, all you can hear are your heartbeats, you cuddle close together and watch the first rays of the sun rising behind the sand dunes ....

To get to the perfect location for the epic wedding photos of Lisa and Fabian, we drove over nine hours through Morocco and then rode for two more hours with camels through the sand dunes of the Sahara desert. The long journey was richly rewarded with spectacular views and an incredibly beautiful landscape. From our bedouin camp at a small oasis in the middle of the Sahara we could see thousands of stars at night.

The next morning we walked up to a sand dune from where we had a perfect view of the sunrise. When the first sunrays winked out the mood was just gorgeous and perfect for the adventurous desert elopement photos Lisa and Fabian had wished for.



Back in Merzouga we found a nice spot near a huge sand dune.

The two lovers changed into a elegant wedding outfit by Gio Rodrigues and as the sun disappeared behind the sand dunes, the two danced one last time through the desert sand before heading back to Marrakech the next day.
