featured martha stewart weddings

Back in 2004, when we launch Brancoprata, there were no inspirational blogs, there was no Instagram or Instastories and we basically had books and magazines as a reference when we were designing weddings. So imagine how we excited we always  felt, every time Martha Stewart Weddings launched a new issue! For us MSW was like a sacred publication that we kept on our shelves (we still do, actually, together with their books) like a shrine. So it's safe to say, MSW is part of Brancoprata's story and for us feels like a milestone achieved to have one of our weddings on their front page! Enjoy this beautiful celebration that Jeannette Tavares from Evoke DC so brilliantly designed and planned!!

editorial ambivalence by brancoprata

For this photography essay, our starting point was the word “ambivalence” and the meaning behind it. So what’s the definition of this word and why do we feel so drawn to it? In a very basic way, ambivalence is the coexistence within an individual of positive and negative feelings towards the same action. Like everything in life, it’s normal to have mixed reactions about everything – even marriage!

We wanted a raw, honest exercise on a relationship between two people: true feelings that overcome the flaws; heartfelt words spoken that make you forget everything else; and, the acknowledgement that perfection is tangible only when you realize that your strength is built on the good and the bad. We wanted our images to focus on the couple and the space – the actions and movements between the two and their reactions to the scene.

We chose a simple and discreet environment with unpretentious details so the couple stood out. With this type of focus in life, it allows us to realize that indecision or uncertainty are also part of the path to reach a joyful outcome!

featured: magnolia rouge, editorial pattern of thoughts

So happy to see our editorial "Pattern of Thoughts" on Magnolia Rouge! It's always wonderful and liberating when you work with a team that really understands our vision, and do their best to bring that perception come to life. 

Also, editorial work is a great way to experiment, specially when we want to see things portrayed in a certain way. It's a process of selecting thoughts and then, preparing written, visual, audible, and ultimately film images that tell a story that reflects our vision! So please take a minute to follow this link and discover a little bit more about this essay: Pattern of Thoughts.

destination wedding at areias do seixo

Today we are sharing a few images of a small intimate wedding we did last year at Areias do Seixo. With impeccable design and organization by the one and only Jeannette Tavares from EVOKE DC. We aboslutely love the ceremony setting and how the gentle wind moved our bride's hair, as she was saying "I do"! What an emotional and heartfelt moment this was!
