What they’re saying

Ana Testi Circle

Barefoot has been our go-to photography company since our daughter was born. We have had two newborn photoshoots for both our kids and a whole family shoot. Can’t say enough good things about Sapphire and Alex as photographers, the assistants in each shoot, the support team and of course, the final results! We have images that have captured precious moments forever. Thank you Barefoot! Ana

Amy Testi Circle

What an amazing experience from Barefoot! We had a maternity shoot and couldn’t be happier with the pics! Barefoot were absolutely amazing! We can’t wait for our newborn shoot! Thanks Alex and the team. Amy

Bethany Testi Circle 2

We absolutely LOVE the images!! Thank you so much. I was so exhausted on the day and not sure how the photos would turn out but after seeing the photos I am so glad we decided to do the shoot, and will always have these photos to remember our daughter being only a day old! I am sure we will be in touch again to book her next photoshoot!! Bethany and Daniel

Mashael Testi Circle 1

I just had the chance to look through the pictures. I really don’t know how to express how much I love them! I tried many photographers in Dubai but honestly speaking Barefoot was the best. For sure I will be one of your loyal customers. Thank you so much to the team – everything from A to Z was just perfect. Mashael


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.

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


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

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
