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!!
one to one by brancoprata III
We're still struggling with updating our journal as much as we can, but I have to be honest and just go ahead and say it... It's not easy!! Currently we are trying to post 3 times a week, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, so keep stoping by to see all the fun we've been having while working!
Today's post is all about a day well spent with João Patrício , who ask us for a One to One last Summer! We always feel so honored to be able to sonnect with fellow photographers, florists, designers, etc, talking about this industry, our craft, our business and sharing everything they want to know about Brancoprata!! João was no exception and we had so much fun! Make sure you stop by João's blog to see his interpretation of this One to One.

traveling light & a workshop
Today's post is dedicated to those who, like us, work on this glorious thing called wedding industry! For the last couple of years we all been seeing numerous workshops, conferences, webinars, etc... tools that can help us evolve and improve our crafts. Either you're a photographer, a stylist, a floral designer, etc... these days there's so much information and great opportunities to learn, share your ideas and grow!
Traveling Light will be perfect for you! 10 conferences with film photographers and also various Workshops, including our very own workshop (a first for us, actually!!) where we will be talking about 3 main subjects, that have a tremendous importance in our personal lives:
Understanding the importance of unveiling your own brand’s DNA.
To help you get out of your comfort zone, and get inspired by everything that surrounds you.
To ensure a high level of personal satisfaction and professional fulfillment over the years.
For a long time we struggled with balance between personal life and a professional career and we then discover that when we acknowledge and learn to balance these 3 things, we found happiness and fulfilment! So we hope to see you there in November when we will be able to talk a lot more about this and also, style and shoot during Traveling Light! Don't forget to check their website today and learn more about this wonderful opportunity to meet like minded people, and those who can inspire you and help you move forward!

editorial angle of reflection
I like to think that everything we learn in life (good or bad) has a reason of being! Many times people feel surprised when I tell them I studied Mathematics for 5 years and usually their reaction is really funny: "What a waste of time!"
However during my time in University, I've learn so much more than Theorems and proofs... numbers and mathematical operations! I've learn that when you set your mind on a goal and you work hard for it, good things will happen! Of course, looking back it's funny how all the technical things I learned, have a huge impact on my daily life and the work I create!
The editorial we are sharing today is a good example of how we can brind Mathematics into editorial work! For this particular inspiration we were inspired by the Law of Reflection, ie the behavior of the light as it reflects follows a predictable law! The law of reflection states that when a ray of light reflects off a surface, the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. (Got to love Mathematics, right?)

relaxed outdoor wedding in portugal
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?
