Sunsets by the beach are always magical! The light can be pretty incredible and even if you only have around 40 minutes to shoot, you do your best to create some lifetime memories for your clients. Last Summer we tried to do just that when we meet Sara and her son Gustavo a little before sunset, hopefully when he grows up, he will be able to cherish these images as much as we and Sara do.
Once again we took advantage of leftover flowers to play around our studio! It was the middle of weddings season, so we did not have a lot of time to spare! Hopefully we will have more time to experiment in the next few months! There are a few designs we are dying to try!
The 3rd edition of Greg Finck's Workshops is launching, today. Next years workshop will occur from May 1-4th 2017 in scenery Provence, so please make sure you check Greg's website or follow @gregfinckworkshops for more information.
We've been incredibly lucky and honored to be part of this one of a kind Workshop. To be able to work with this incredible team of vendors, we admire so much, and to spend a week at this venue, creating, sharing and learning is so much more that we expected when we started this adventure with Greg!
We couldn't be more enthusiastic and of course, excited, with all the things we are preparing for next year's edition. Get ready to be inspired, to be challenged and to leave your comfort zone. I guess we will be seeing you in May!

Excited to share a few images of a wedding ceremony we designed a few months back at Mosteiro de Landim. Inspired by the textures of the old stone and the lush gardens that surround the venue, we created this very natural aisle with lots of foraged greenery and in-season flowers. Because it was such a cold rainy day, we added candles to create a feeling of warmth and coziness around the couple!
The day before their wedding, Tânia and Diogo did an engagement session in Azores, with the beautiful landscape as a backdrop. São Miguel Island is truly a jewel lost in the North Atlantic Ocean, the scenery, the gastronomy, the nautical sports, the customs and above all the people, make the Azores, this archipelago with a volcanic origins, an Utopia made reality.
With this inspiration we wanted to emphasize mobility, lightness and freedom of the human body, the acts of walking and imprinting a place in our own body... to make ourselves part of the landscape that surrounds us! To feel in sync with Nature, to recognize things has they present themselves. Richard Long's work has a huge impact on how we see things and this shoot was just a way to acknowledge that!
A massive thank you to the whole team who made this editorial at Serra da Freita possible. We all endured horrible working conditions, specially with the cold and fog, but in the end, it was all so worth it.

When you end up with leftovers from a shoot, you have fun and play with it. Plus it's a good excuse to exercise styling techniques and to try out different approaches.
