What they’re saying

Samar

Dear Barefoot family, I can’t thank you enough for the amazing photoshoot and the lovely coffee table book. Thank you so much for everything and for the voucher as well. Hope we will see you soon. Much love from all of us. Samar

Leanne Testi Circle

We had a newborn photo shoot with Barefoot and I can’t say enough nice things about it! The team visited us at home for the shoot, they showed infinite gentleness and patience with our little one, the babies comfort came across as the most important thing! We have just received our images, on the exact day we were told we would get them, and I absolutely love every one of them. The hardest part now will be choosing one or two to print! I can’t recommend Barefoot enough. Thank you for our amazing photographs. Leanne

Andy Testi Circle

We visited Dubai over the New Year holiday and the team were able to accommodate us at short notice and worked with us to make sure the shoot was perfect. Sapphire did a great job of engaging our little one and the pictures turned out great! Andy

Zeta Testi

As someone who has never really been photogenic, booking barefoot Dubai’s new Mompreneur Portrait shoot to get some portraits taken for my website was quite daunting. However, from the moment I arrived in the studio both Alex and Sapphire made me feel very comfortable. Within minutes I was laughing and felt very relaxed in front of the camera. The whole shoot was great fun. And what was exceptional was not only the quality of the photographs, but also how actually empowering it is to go through this process, I felt confident, happy and quite relaxed throughout the whole shoot, seeing the images at the end is simply the cherry on the top. There were over 30 shots I loved that were delivered on the web page from the BFD team, with one in particular that I believe truly captured the REAL me and the image I wanted to portray on my website. I don’t think any other photographer would have been able to take such a great shot. If you are looking for a professional photography team, that will truly capture who you are AND make you look great, I would absolutely recommend Barefoot Dubai. Zeta Yarwood, Career and NLP Life Coach

Katy Testi Circle

Our whole experience with Barefoot was amazing, from the friendly service we received when we first scheduled the shoot, to the gentle way that you worked with our little boy and the beautiful images that we received afterwards. We have already started recommending Barefoot to our pregnant friends and will definitely use you again ourselves in the future. Katy and Andy

Manish Testu Cicrle

We recently completed a Indian movie (2 States) themed photo shoot, since that is the theme for our wedding as well. We absolutely loved the photos, as they were able to recreate the movie posters and images quite brilliantly. Based on their recommendation, we were able to print and use a map as our background, which was the highlight of the shoot. The whole team at Barefoot was extremely cooperative, responsive and friendly, even when we had to reschedule the shoot. We would definitely recommend them to everyone. Manish and Mathu

Vanessa Testi Circle

Thank you so much for our wonderful family beach photos! We did a lot of research choosing a photographer and the Barefoot team has exceeded our expectations. From the first email to Kelly all the way through to receiving our images the process has been flawless and professional. Sapphire was amazing, helping our toddlers relax and have fun on the beach whilst capturing the most beautiful images. We hoped for at least one family image to put on canvas and now we have too many to choose from! They are all simply stunning! We love the different styles of photos and we will be recommending Barefoot to all our friends and family! Vanessa

Amit Juhi Testi Circle 2

Thank you so much for the lovely pictures. We sat down all together, the whole family to see them. All of us loved it, such a treat. A special thanks to Barefoot for being there to capture such great moments of us to cherish for the rest of our lives. Special Announcement: Our Baby Ahaan arrived soon after the shoot on the 21st Jan. It’s like he was waiting for his parents to do the shoot with Barefoot. A warm hug from the Singh Family and Our Little One to the whole team. You guys are doing a great job. Thank you once again! See ya guys again soon. Amit and Juhi

Antti Testi Circle 1

Despite a very short notice, Alex was very accommodating with our photoshoot request and timelines, organised our shoot and gave great advice on practicalities. For the shoot itself, our photographer Sapphire did a great job, was embracing our ideas and captured them very well. As the image processing was also good, the final outcome was great, and we now have tens of great images from our special day. Everything was very well managed by the Barefoot team. Thank you. Antti

Layal Testi

I AM IN LOVE with each photo.. I knew that we were going to have amazing shots, but I am amazed at how natural and beautiful it came out!! Thank you so so much Barefoot… In each photo I see Laila’s soul shining through her eyes and smile! I am sure that when she is older she will be so happy that she had her first birthday shoot done… and done so beautifully… I think I will go over them a thousand times! Layal

Suzan

Thank you and the barefoot family for an amazing shoot, you have exceeded our expectations, the team was very patient with us and gave us lots of good ideas for the shoot. We will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Hope to see you guys soon for the next shoot. Suzan, Yousef and Saif

Ellen Testi Cricle

My fiancé and I recently did a Barefoot Dubai photo shoot on the beach, for memories of our engagement. We are both thrilled with the photos. They really are amazing. We had so much fun doing them too! Alex made us feel so at ease. Very much recommended. Thanks Barefoot Dubai! Ellen and Jamie

Rati

Team Barefoot, first of all many thanks for making our son Ahyan’s first birthday so special. A Cake Smash photo shoot! First, we were a bit anxious seeing Ahyan a bit off-mood just before the event. Thanks to very chirpy Ruth and cool Sapphire from Barefoot to turn the situation into a small pre-cake smash party with Ahyan enjoying every bit of singing and cheering. Then… what great shots! In a very smooth way. For sure it was lots of experience showing up when we saw how Sapphire made Ahyan so comfortable with everything and gave us small tips on the fly to ensure that Ahyan’s tempo continued. The little rockstar was all charged up and was enjoying being a centre of attraction we had to literally take 10 inches tall cake away from him, to bring the event to closure. And when the photographs came we re-lived the moments once again and loved each and every snap. Real smashing experience it was. Thank you Sapphire. We had a great end to end professional experience with Barefoot. Kelly’s coordination was superb. Alex: Your team rocks! Many thanks again. All the best to Barefoot to grow leaps & bounds. We will surely be in touch for more assignments. Rati and Kausar

I’ve lived in Dubai for seven years and worked with a lot of photographers here, and have to say that working with Alex and the entire Barefoot team was one of the best experiences I’ve had. It was fascinating to watch the Barefoot team work so closely and seamlessly together. They were so kind, creative, helpful and all had a great sense of humour – which is important when working with both a newborn, toddler AND tired parents who are not getting much sleep! I think it also helps that Alex is a father too – so he understands first hand the kind of shots that you want to capture. We were able to view the shots as we were taking them, which was so lovely to see (and also helpful for new Mums still trying to hide the baby weight!) Another reason we booked Barefoot is because they provide so many great photos. I know that some photographers prefer to charge per photo, or only provide 20 or so, with extra fees for additional photos. Barefoot provide 30 – 40 at least which is fantastic, at no additional charge! They also provided all of the digital photos in colour, sepia and black and white so that we could easily decide how we’d like to view them. I simply can’t sing Barefoot Dubai’s praises enough – they were an absolute delight and I’m planning on booking them each year to take some family snaps. Katie Fielder, Emirates News, Dubai

Natasha

We had a great time yesterday and loved every moment of our shoot. We had such a lovely time, Alex was fantastic and really made my 3 year old feel at ease. The pics are great and truly can’t wait to have them framed and put up in the house. Thank you for all your help, you have a lovely team, I will make sure to recommend you to others. Natasha, Spencer and Alex
