In order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer, most of the times a portrait shows the person looking directly at the photographer, for this One to One we designed for Alice Nunes Vicente Fine Art Photography, the idea was to explore the concept of a portrait, where we wanted to achive the representation of a person in which the face and its expression is predominant. And although we never get to shoot a lot during our mentoring sessions (after all we prefer to be focused on the person who is doing the One to One with us, in this particular case, Alice) we thought it would be fun to share a few of the images we took that day.

destination engagement by the sea
I can hardly believe that it's Fall already! Summer went by so fast and the last couple of weeks we've been really busy organizing our warehouse. We will be selling a lot of our decor items soon, to get space for new things, but first we had to make a few decicions on what to sell and what to keep! In the meantime we manage to find the time to update our journal and share images of Ashley and Rob's engagement shoot at Praia da Ursa, last year.
This engagement session was featured on Magnolia Rouge a while back, click here to see the feature.

It's quite obvious to see why both me and André love to do One to Ones! It's a great opportunity to meet talented people who are making the wedding industry better and better everyday! And every time we get an inquiry to do one of these mentoring sessions, we get really excited about hanging out with incredible people! This time was no exception, Joaquim Fial, asked us to do a mentoring session with him a few months back and today we are sharing a few images of the editorial we did, during that beautiful golden hour! Make sure you stop by Joaquim Fial's website to see his work!

family shoot by the sea by brancoprata
Starting the week filled with energy and positivity after a wonderful weekend working with a wonderful couple (more on that later)! For now, here's a family shoot we did in the beginning of the year. It's so rewarding to see our once brides and grooms become mothers and fathers!!
