Oksana and Xavier's engagement came together in one of the most random ways yet! First of all I met Oksana a few years ago when we both hopped on a plane to Israel for a Birthright Israel trip. Basically it's the best thing any Jewish kid could ask for, the organization sends you to Israel to learn more about you're heritage in the most hands on way possible. While traveling throughout the country we got to know each other a lot better and of course we've stayed in touch over the years. When I mentioned on Facebook that I was headed to Abu Dhabi to shoot Kate and Joe's Engagement Session, Oksana messaged me with her great news! It turned out she had just gotten engaged and her and Xavier were living in Dubai. It worked out perfectly, I went into Dubai and met with the two of them and we were able to run around town and get some awesome photos. I know I can't wait to make it back there to see them again and see more of the ridiculously gorgeous scenery. I was there for just over a week and there's still so much more to do. Here's some of my favorites from their session!
