Soufiane & Jamie, shoot Aït Ben Haddou

Weddings

Sometimes we need our creative juices flowing and the best way for me to do that is to organise a styled wedding shoot. Go to a dreamy bucket list venue, collect a dream team around me and shoot from sunrise till sundown. Aït Ben Haddou was on my list for a while, so I didn't have to think long about a place for this shoot. Located in the foothills of the High Atlas, in the province of Ouarzazate, you find Aït Ben Haddou. Ksar is the North African Meghrebi Arabic term for castle. The Ksar of Aït Ben Haddou is a group of houses within the defensive walls are reinforced by angle towers. It is an extraordinary ensemble of buildings offering a complete panorama of pre-Saharan earthen construction techniques. It was the perfect backdrop for our shoot: the terracotta walls, visible history in the buildings and palm trees. We booked a cheap (and very dirty) Airbnb next to the Ksar to do hair and make-up. We moved to the inside of the Ksar for these photos, but it was more than 40 degrees and incredibly sunny. Made our job a little more difficult, but couldn't be more happy with the end result.
