When we were getting things ready for the new website, André and I came up with the idea of designing a few table settings inspired by the elements Earth, Fire and Water (you can find the result here). That week we got together a few props and flowers and we had tons of fun playing around with everything, and because in the end, we still had so many leftovers, we decided on playing some more! Here's just a few images of those experiments back in November! Sometimes even when there's no concept, no inspiration, no creative team, you still are able to create something that speaks to you and reflects the things you are drawn to!
DESTINATION WEDDING AT VIDAGO PALACE
I can hardly believe that it's Easter time! This year is going so fast, and wedding season is just around the corner! We still have so many things from 2015, to share here on our blog!
This is the first wedding we are sharing on our journal since our rebrand (cannot believe it took us so long)! Alexandra and Adam got married in one of the most stunning Hotels we've ever seen: Hotel Vidago Palace! And yes, if you are wondering, me and André are huge fans of Wes Anderson, and The Grand Budapest Hotel is one of our favorite films, so we kind of love this place! Anyway, the couple lives in London, so the wedding was a great excuse to spend time with their friends and family! We love the fact that the religious ceremony was in Portuguese, English but also Polish (and this way all the guests understood every single word)!
FEATURED: MAGNOLIA ROUGE
We are super excited to finally share this editorial we did last August, featured on one of our favorite blogs: Magnolia Rouge! Such a talent group of people with whom we always love to work, make sure you check the full feature here!

FAMILY SHOOT BY BRANCOPRATA
Last week we posted some black & white images of Fábio and Júlia's session here in Porto, and today we thought it would be great to share the rest of their shoot, but this time the outdoor version! It was a beautiful Winter day, filled with that unique golden light that we love so much, we had such a wonderful afternoon walking around the city with this couple, showing them our favorite spots and city treasures! We cannot wait to see them again next month in Brazil!
BLACK & WHITE PORTRAITS
For us natural light is a very important part of our work, and there is no doubt that we love outdoor portraits with that beautiful golden light, however, sometimes it's necessary to get out of our comfort zone, that's how we push ourselves to do better and better every time!! So when Júlia and Fábio our talented friends from Duo Borgatto, came to visit us in Porto, André played his his camera and tried something a bit different! Next week we will show you the outdoor version of this shoot, but for now, here's a few photos taken at our studios staircase! Such a cool place, right?
