couple shoot by the sea

When Audrey told us she was coming to Porto and wanted André to take photos of her and her boyfriend Nicolas, we felt not only excited but also honored. We met Audrey a couple of years ago in Paris and since then we never lost contact! Audrey is also a film photographer known for her unmistakable fashion house-inspired aesthetic, so it was quite easy to shoot her and Nicolas.

The chemistry between the two is more than obvious, which made everything even easier to shoot! And on top of everything, the weather decided to help us, and a  absolutely magical sunset with a mystical fog added even more romanticism to this session and consequently helped translate that almost poetic atmosphere of a late afternoon on a beach in Matosinhos, here in our lovely hometown, Porto.

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we do!

engagement shoot in lisbon by brancoprata

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and one of the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as Paris, London or even Rome, by centuries. It was ruled by a series of Germanic tribes from the 5th century, and then it was captured by the Moors in the 8th century, until in 1147, Afonso Henriques and the Crusaders reconquered the city. Unlike most capital cities, Lisbon's status as the capital of Portugal has never been granted or confirmed officially, either by statute or in written form. For the last couple of years, Lisbon has been invaded by turists, seekingk beautiful architecture & monuments, as well as great food, wine and of course, fado.

Jacquelyn and Justin visit Lisbon last year and decided it was the perfect location for their engagement session. We've been following Jacquelyn's work and blog, Lark & Linen, for a long time now, so we immediately felt overjoyed about finally meeting Jacquelyn in person.

traveling light

Last November we went to Torroella di Montgrí, near Barcelona, to speak and do a workshop during Traveling Light, where more than 80 photographers from all over the world came to meet, share and learn from each other while disconnecting from the day a day life, and you can see more of this experience here.

For us, it was the perfect ending for and incredible year filled with many new challenges, outstanding moments and unforgetable memories. Traveling Light was a magical moment for all who attended, you could see the excitement in the air and we will never forget this week at Cinema Montgrí, where Albert Roig and his team where able to create an one of a time event!

During one of the days, we held a workshop, where we had the chance to speak and sshare our creative process when we design and shoot editorial work. For this workshop we prepared a story that we are sharing today. Each image portrays a significant moment in our plot. Our storyline is about a woman searching for her freedom, after feeling trapped into a routine.

We can't thank enough our incredible team, who made this possible under crazy conditions: Diva Borrelli Make Up Artist (a true angel walking the Earth), Canigueral Mesas con Esencia, Otaduy and Natalia.

SIMPLE EUROPEAN WEDDING IDEAS IN A WHITE AND GREEN PALETTE

This venue located in the North of Portugal dates from the beginning of 12th century. An old Monastery embellished by perfectly designed paths and artistic fountains has a graceful garden with a small pond, where you can still see the old retaining wall of stone. The massive walls, with various colors and unique textures of this stone Monastery, are absolutely captivating and inspired us for this editorial and of course, were the perfect framing for every image! 

A mix of old and new, a truly classic feel with contemporary touches, modern accents paired with a romantic young couple completely in love with each other. Above all, we wanted to showcase a simple elegance that follows no trends. In a time where everything is a click away, we wanted to take a step back and truly appreciate the importance of the 5 senses. To experience each and every one of them: to taste a sweet flavor, to truly see and hear what’s around us, to take the time to feel every texture of every wall, of every stone, of every door and to smell every plant, every rose garden. Because the most important and significant moments in life get more real when you acknowledge everything that surrounds you.
