Outdoor celebrations are always filled with a fantastic light and vibe, we think that's the reason film photographers love them so much! Today's wedding has that Portuguese Summer light captured by André and combined with our floral design services! It's the perfect match, don't you agree?

family shoot in paris by brancoprata
A couple of months ago we went to Paris and got a chance to shoot this beautiful family while we were in town! We met them a couple of years ago when we photographed their wedding in Porto, so imagine how thrilled we were to finally meet their son! Parc du Domaine National de Saint Germain en Laye is just outside Paris and it's a must see! Beautiful, lavish gardens and a Château that is at the centre of the town of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. A perfect setting for a Sunday walk with the family that we were lucky enough to shoot!
inspired gatherings VIII - floral design by brancoprata
If you follow us along you probably notice that we talk a lot about Inspired Gatherings, we even have a tag for it! But what does that means, what is an inspired gathering? Whenever we have time, we like to play with flowers and styling techniques! We normally shoot everything in our own studio, with natural light and of course, on film, like everything else you see on this website!!
It's basically a floral design exercise we do it here at Brancoprata, hoping we can always inspire future couples when it comes to designing their day, and making sure they understand that there is so much more to a wedding than choosing a color pallette and favorite flowers.
real wedding at parque da penha
Sometimes the chemistry between two people is so real and so intense, that the entire world moves at a different pace. That is the case with Ana and Paulo, they met in college and have been unseparable ever since! And their wedding was a true reflection of who they are, what are their values and what they cherish the most in life: each other, family and friends.
Their goal was to create the perfect setting for their wedding day, something that guests would remember forever and once they saw Parque da Penha for the first time, they knew that it was exactly what they dreamed of! The faultless venue had everything they were looking for, natural surroundings and and a unique flair like no other venue they visited.
We designed the wedding using a mix of greenery, white flowers, and gold accents. For a personal statement by the bride, we also incorporated a few geometrical details that made the entire look a bit more modern and personal, but at the same time keep in it very romantic!

family shoot in the mountains by brancoprata
Last Winter we had the privilege of shooting Elisabete and Nelson, the photographers behind Memories Photography & Lifestyle, and we got to spend a afternoon talking about our lives and our business! It's always an honor to shoot a fellow photographer, and we always feel so special by doing so.
