In this Couple Session we felt complete. Juliana and Alexandre left us free to create and surrendered to the unknown, after all, who is used to a photo shoot? If playing in the unknown is sometimes worthwhile, we experience sensations that in “controlled” situations we would not experience. We are grateful to the unknown and to be taken by us in these adventures.
Rio de Janeiro, like Brazil, is the most wonderful mix of cultures, smells, flavors, colors, people and everything you can imagine. Santa Teresa is right in the middle of it all and we can see the contrast that vibrates. Known as a bohemian and cultural neighborhood, as soon as you set foot on the streets of Santa Teresa, you feel that air of creativity and joy in Rio.
If we hasn’t move to Portugal, this would be one of the neighborhoods that we would consider living in Rio, close to the city center, close to nature, artist friends close by and many cultural movements starts there. Everything we could ask for inspiration.
We walked through the streets with Ju and Ale and everything was so fluid, we could see beauty everywhere, walls with graffiti, wires tangled in the poles, small corners with plants, viewpoints for the city, everything was beautiful.
Couple Session in Rio - intimacy
We met Ju and Alexandre when they traveled to Portugal for Andre and Filipa’s wedding that we photographed in 2019. Since then we haven’t stopped talking on Instagram and in 2020 we set up their couple session, which didn’t happen because of COVID. We came back to Brazil in 2021 and managed to schedule a date with them.
The day dawned rainy and we were worried about not having the sun to accompany us in the couple session. And it had to be in that mood, which we later found out was the type of day that Ju likes most. After all, we don’t need perfect weather to show love and every person has it’s favorite. And to be honest, cloudy days are easier to photograph because the light is very soft, and if it rains and the couples are opened we can have an unique story under the water, having fun. It’s always good, no matter the weather. The only thing that matters is love and to have fun!
In the second part of the couple session, we went to explore the nature that surrounded us, places that we had never photographed before, we were walking and stopping the car when we saw a scene that called our attention. It was amazing. Ju gave the idea and we were very pleasant creating freely like this.
At that moment, nature embraced the couple in a way that they let go and everything became more intimate, they really connected. We just watched, let the magic happen and of course we photographed these unique moments. The photos speaks for themselves.
Thank you! - Couple SEssion in Rio
We are very grateful for couples who believe in our work and give themselves from beginning to end. It was like that with Juliana and Alexandre. A fluid, light, intimate, spontaneous and true couple session. Photographing and then editing these photos was very satisfying. Spending the afternoon with these two was also a pleasure, we could laugh and photograph love.
When we edit, we always put ourselves into the client’s position, thinking: “Wow, I would love to have this photo!”, and in this session we felt to have some printed at the wall, that they are art pieces. This makes us very proud, but also thankful because they wanted us to create.
