Sunrise Couple Photosession in Ouarzazate, Morocco

Engagement Photos in Morocco, Adventure Wedding Photographer Morocco Africa

We made a stopover in a cozy Riad near Ouarzazate, on the way from Marrakech to Merzouga. While planning this trip, we found only the name so funny, but the landscape was extraordinary.

In the middle of the red sand and stone hills, I felt like in another world.

Of course, we could not miss this opportunity, and so we got up early the next morning to take engagement pictures at sunrise, in this epic landscape.

The light was gorgeous, the first rays of sunshine let Lisa's dress sparkle, and the red sand provided a unique location for the couple photo shoot in Morocco.


After a delicious breakfast and a short exploration tour through Ouarzazate, we drove to Merzouga, from where the next day, our adventure in the Sahara desert should continue.

On the way there, we stopped again for a short couple shoot in Morocco's desert landscape. You can look at the romantic couple photos we took there in this blog post.

For the wedding photos in the Sahara desert, we had to ride the camels through the dunes for another two hours the next day. The long trip to get there got rewarded by a stunning place in the middle of the Sahara desert. From where we could watch the rising sun behind the dunes all alone.
