It's been a crazy few months around here, we've been traveling a lot lately and attending some really cool photography workshops, meetings and wedding conferences! In February we went to The Rural Workshop near Barcelona, where André taught a 2 hour masterclass for a group of 25 people! Our dear friends from Bodas de Cuento prepared and styled the models, so that André could show how he normally shoots! A massive thank you to the team involved (please see credits below) and to all the kick-ass photographers who attended, you guys are the best!

ENGAGEMENT SHOOT IN BRAZIL
Last September we spent a weekend in a brazilian paradise called Trancoso, to shoot Carolina and Rolando's beautiful beach wedding! The day before the ceremony we walked around the Quadrado area for some engagement portraits with the couple! It was incredibly hot and sunny and we immediately fell in love with the local architecture! Every building in Trancoso is so colorful, the local stores are gorgeous and perfectly styled and everybody is so nice! No wonder so many people choose Trancoso for a destination wedding or just for a random holiday with family or friends! It's pure heaven!
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)!
