What they’re saying


Thank you for our lovely photos we absolutely love them!! We had so much fun taking the pictures on the Beach. Alex made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. We were allowed to bring our creativity to the shoot and Alex captured a very memorable time for us in Dubai. He is very professional, creative and open minded. I highly recommend Barefoot Dubai for capturing those priceless moments. We booked a 1 hour slot and received all our images in Art, Colour, Black & White and Sepia! Ria & Bejan


If you have a baby then we would highly recommend the package where Barefoot come to your home and set up a studio. Our 7 month old baby James was far more relaxed being at home, which meant more smiles (helped by Alex’s never-ending ability to make James laugh!) and the convenience of being able to give him time out when necessary (a quick feed or nappy change). It meant James was happy throughout the shoot. Alex and Sapphire are also full of ideas for the shots – it’s clear that they have plenty of experience. But, most importantly of all, we loved the final result – the photos. The fact that you’re given the color, b/w and sepia photos is a really nice touch. We plan to do a beach photo shoot when James can walk. Sean, Kirsty and James


My family and I were very pleased with the way Alex and Sapphire managed the photoshoot. They were professional at their work, but at the same time very patient and warm towards my 8 day old nephew Aryan. Barefoot is exceptionally good at their work and I would happily recommend them. Niki


Thanks a lot Alex for the beautiful pictures. They are just amazing!!! Every single moment you have captured is just priceless for us. Highly recommended for everyone!!!! Can’t wait for the weather to get better for another photo shoot on the beach! Parul


We booked a 4 month baby shoot with Sapphire from Barefoot Dubai for our daughter. We found her to be extremely professional, patient and thoughtful when she visited our home, where she captured some outstanding shots of our daughter which we will treasure forever. We would not hesitate to recommend Barefoot to anyone who wants to capture their family’s special moments. Gemma Plowman


My family had the most amazing time in Dubai on our Family vacation. We were overjoyed to capture this experience in images that will last forever. Truly priceless! Barefoot was excellent in every way. I recommend it to anyone looking to capture precious moments. The Kornegay Family


The family shoot was the first for our family, and immediately after Barefoot delivered the images, our social media channels were crowded with comments from people admiring the amazing captured moments. It was a delight shooting with Sapphire from Barefoot Dubai and an experience worth repeating and recommending to friends. Nacho and family


Excellent images of my 1 month old daughter!! I would definitely be scheduling more shoots and would highly recommend to my friends!! Superb client service. It took me less than a minute to schedule the shoot. Kamna and Dheeraj


We have been extremely satisfied with both the service and the quality of the photographs that Barefoot shot for us. We are unfamiliar with Dubai and got a little lost on our way to the photo-shoot, but the photographer (Sapphire) happily waited another half an hour and made sure that we got all the shots we wanted. Really good experience! Lasse and family


Thank you so much for being so patient with Mansour, you were great with him and very professional dealing with the whole photoshoot! The pictures are so lovely! Can’t wait to show them to the rest of the family and I will be definitely recommending you to everyone I know. Alia and Mansour


The Photos look brilliant and very well taken, so professional. We were lucky to be recommended to go with you and will always recommend Barefoot to whoever concerned. I don’t want also to forget the excellent exceptional attitude of Ms Sapphire. Muadh and Norah


Action speaks louder than words and that’s what we experienced during the photo-shoot of our twins with Alex and Sapphire. Amazing clicks are just the end product of how comfortable Alex made our little ones feel during the shoot and hats off to their patience working with twins. Go for Barefoot – Alex. Highly recommend!!! Naziya and Naushad


Our pre-wedding photo shoot with Barefoot couldn’t be more fun and relaxing; everyone who sees the images asks who the photographer was, amazing service at a reasonable price – one to recommend! George and Joanne


We were made at ease and comfortable from the beginning and the photographs are exactly what we were looking for. Barefoot was very accommodating with regards to location and timings. You will definitely not be disappointed! Katy and Paul


Dubai became part of our life and with the help of Alex it is already a cherished memory for years to come. It was a day to remember and Dato our 4-year-old son keeps pushing us to go for more photo shoots now, thanks to Alex! He was great with him and we are looking forward to meeting him in future! George


Having had a few family shoots in the past, this was by far the most relaxing and easy morning in the park. The kids had a great time, Barefootdubai really captured their personalities without them even realising. A great keepsake of those precious moments all for a very reasonable price. Amazing – one to recommend. Tracey
