Every story starts with an idea.
Ours simply began with our love and passion for creativity.
Alan & Mandy’s Story
Our story began with our love of photography and make-up. Like many entrepreneurs, we stepped away from corporate employment to devote ourselves to our visionary artistry, setting up our own business: Pixel Roses.
Harnessing our love for creativity, we began providing weekend photoshoots and private make-up. We soon found clients seeking us out, drawn to our growing reputation for delivering a relaxed, friendly and enjoyable experience with amazing images.
Together, we have found a way to truly showcase our ability to capture personalities and make each individual look and feel unique.
Our Core Values
We don’t just take pictures, we create them. Everyone is unique and we make sure that your marvellous self always shines through as we capture your vibrant personality in its true form.
Fun & Friendliness
We strive to make having your photograph taken a comfortable and rewarding experience, and something you should celebrate. We provide a fun environment for our extraordinary clients while making them feel emotionally uplifted.
Our passion and creativity knows no bounds when it comes to showcasing you and/or your brand. Through expertise in makeup and photography, your visage becomes art.
About Alan & Mandy
Hi! I’m Alan. My passion for creativity stems from when I was at school and my father told me I had to follow sciences as these subjects would lead to a better future.
Well, it took me a while to get there, but look at me now, Dad! I picked up the camera after a long and successful sales career in the tech industry that gave me the freedom to explore new horizons, and haven’t looked back since.
Powered by my vision and extensive experience of working with thriving corporates, influential business owners and growing startups, I understood the true importance of capturing personalities on camera and have made it my mission to ensure that no entrepreneur or business owner should have a bad photograph!
Hello! I’m Mandy. I am a certified makeup artist based in Dubai, originally from South Africa. I have vast experience in all aspects of beauty makeup.
