indoors maternity session by brancoprata

Architecture allowed light to enter this space, carving shadows and creating an atmospheric design, perfect for this very modern and fashion oriented maternity shoot. We really love these images, since we believe they are a true reflection of this very stylish soon to be mother.

destination wedding in a old monastery

Sharing this beautiful wedding on our journal today, make sure you read what our couple had to say and please check the full feature on Magnolia Rouge.

"We ended up meeting an old friend who was living in the U.K. at the time, but visiting Lisbon, for dinner on New Year’s Eve, and then we went and watched the fireworks over the river. While the trip was just for a few days, we absolutely fell in love with the city and country. We especially loved the people – the whole country seemed so low-key and relaxed, and we found the city pleasant and welcoming.

When we began looking for locations for the wedding, we knew that we wanted to do a destination wedding. Portugal immediately came to mind and we initially thought that Lisbon would be perfect – we felt confident with fond memories of the wonderful time we had over New Years that we could find an amazing venue and really show our friends and family a beautiful time. 

When we started looking for venues in Portugal, it was important that the features represented both our interests: architecture and history. We wanted a venue that was unique, with old architecture, big, oversized, and represented the culture of Portugal, but with current and new amenities for our guests. We originally considered the Lisbon area, however so happy we expanded and considering other venues around the entire country. At the POUSADA MOSTEIRO DE AMARES, we found everything we wanted. The original design and architecture of the building were beautiful which resulted in a breathtaking setting for our wedding day, but also for the days leading up to our big day. An old monastery beautifully converted into a hotel, all the rooms and amenities were modern however, and would make our guests comfortable."

beach vibes by brancoprata

This is a photo essay to illustrate an unwritten story, about a women and her need to take a few moments for herself, enjoying the Summer afternoons by the beach, listening the sound of waves, feeling the breeze on her hair, and the movement of the sand between her fingers. Usually we are so caught up in our daily lives that we completely forget to slow down for a moment and just take a deep breath. This is a pause, a moment in time where there is an intimate, intricate liaison between the woman and the environment.

macao by brancoprata

Last January we went on this crazy adventure with our dear friend Greg Finck, and we spent a week in Asia (Macao first and then Tokyo) to work on an brand editorial for Sheraton Asia! We did the creative direction, styling and flowers for the two stories that Greg shoot, and it was probably one of the most challenging weeks of our lives! But lets leave all that to another blogpost!

Although it was indeed a crazy week, André manage to take a few images of Macao, a resort city in Southern China, known for it's casinos and luxury hotels.
