INTRODUCING ENCHANTE STUDIOS

 

It is with sheer delight that I am welcoming Enchanté Studios into the vendor directory. If you haven’t yet clicked play on the video above then I urge you to do so because it displays Shyrell’s style, vision and talent far better than I could ever describe.

Enchanté Studios is a unique studio in Business Bay offering beautiful and intimate photography for women. On meeting Shyrell I was incredibly impressed by her beautiful surroundings and gorgeous photography style but what I left with and remember the most is the overwhelming beauty of how she sees people. In a city where image is everything and plastic surgery is rife it certainly made for a wonderful change. As Shyrell herself says, nobody really looks and counts how many lines you have on your face, nobody measures how big your arms or thighs are. When people look at you, they notice how your eyes shines when you are happy. People see your lips purse when you are laughing. People remember how graciously you talk and how you make them feel.’

I love it. I love this ethos. And I love the celebration of women as we are, all eyes lit up and lines of happiness.

Your perception of boudoir may just be challenged with this lady…

Tell us a little bit about yourself

My name is Shyrell and I and the Founder and Creative Director at Enchanté Studios. I have been in Dubai for more than 10 years and is lucky to have found my passion for photography here 🙂 I started photographing professionally in January 2014 when I announce to family and friends I’d like to be a photographer after leaving job as Administration Manager from a publishing background. Like many other photographers I started photographing kids and families as well as private events. I then slowly transition to photographing women which is now the core focus of our studio.

Tell us a little bit about the experience that ladies can expect when coming to your studio

Our session aims to be an experience more than just a photo-session. The images our client receive are just icing to the cake 🙂 It is truly connecting with themselves and enjoying a time-out when life needs a bit of slow down. We aim to show beauty through intimate portraits and let women find and embrace beauty and flaws within them. We help women see what others see when they look at them in the normal world, nobody really looks and counts how many lines you have on your face, nobody measures how big your arms or thighs are. When people look at you, they notice how your eyes shines when you are happy. People see your lips purse when you are laughing. People will remember how graciously you talk and how you make them feel. People see how you emit beautiful light when you are calm and happy from within. These are what we aim to show our clients when they come in for a session.

Describe your photography style. 

My photography style is very feminine and often bathe in soft natural light. Our sessions are often created with a set build and a bit of styling to create a more personal session with a good mix of both carefully posed and candid shots.

You have recently undergone a beautiful rebrand, tell us about the creative process behind that. 

When we first launched our website, our focus was on everything women. So we showed our beauty portfolio, business and press portraits for women entrepreneurs, and our intimate/boudoir portraits all together in one site. As we grow, we are making a reputable name as a go-to studio for tasteful boudoir portraits in Dubai and this is what our new branding is all about. We still cater for anything and everything women portraits, but our new branding strongly reflects the new direction of the studio as a premiere boutique experience for intimate portraits in Dubai and the UAE.

Along with a re-branded website, we also created our very first brandfilm with the help of some of the very talented team in the country to show what the experience is like at the studio. This particular brand film speaks of the elegance of our bridal intimate portraits.

What would you say to ladies who are considering intimate portraits but might be a little scared of approaching you?

There is nothing to be scared of, contrary to what many think our sessions are super fun and are an enjoyable experience. We are changing how boudoir photography is perceived in general and we have always been careful of drawing the line between risqué and elegant tasteful portraits. Each session is tailored to your personality and comfort on how little or more you would like to do in your session. We have different genres of intimate portraits, as we always say, boudoir photography is no longer just an intimate gift for your loved one.  Our beauty, lifestyle and fine art sessions are more suited for women wanting to do it for themselves perhaps to celebrate a special occasion. We also have high respect for our client’s privacy so only clients who have given us permission through a signed release are shared. Client has full option to keep images private or purged from our hard-drives once all orders are placed.

What keeps you motivated?

I have many family and friends who are proud and supportive of my career. They keep me motivated and at the same time keep me grounded. I have also come to meet so many amazing clients who most I become close friends with. It also drives me to be better at this craft are the clients who told me just how much they loved the experience and that the session have created a renewed sense of confidence for themselves.

I am the founder and editor of Lace in the Desert and have called Dubai my home for 4 years. Elegant design, romantic textures, intricate detailing and heart yearning photography are my loves.
