An intimate photoshoot at home
A photoshoot doesn’t get any more intense than this. “Come closer ” is the love story of a photoshoot at home.
Andressa and João are a passionate and perfect couple. They complement each other wonderfully. She is communicative, laid back and fun. He is polite, a bit shy and very observant. Together, they share a unique chemistry.
I already photographed their wedding. As is usual with my couples, we did a previous engagement photoshoot. When me and Andressa started talking about it, she immediately came up with the idea of having a photoshoot at home. Obviously, I was delighted with the idea. It’s not everyday that you have couples interested in doing a more intimate photoshoot. This kind of photoshoot is the reflexion of the couple’s singularities and it’s usually beautiful. Nonetheless, it can be daunting to be invited to a couple’s house. Among other things, that means stepping into their comfort zone, the place where they share their true selves.
How was it?
When I fist arrived, I was immediately greeted with Andressa’s warm smile. The main concern for a photographer doing an in-home photoshoot is always the light. Yet, the living room had beautiful light coming through the windows and the decoration was perfect for what I had in mind. While Andressa opened a bottle of wine, their lovely dog, Jully, came to me, curious about this stranger in the house and, soon after, João joined in too.
Natural and in love
I think both of them were anxious and somewhat nervous about the photoshoot. Nonetheless, the resulting images show they let go of the fact that I was there, and allowed themselves to be exactly how they are: natural and in love. Along their conversation moments, candid and spontaneous love gestures happened between them and that’s when my camera was ready.
This photoshoot was all about their connection, the way their bodies and eyes speak. It was intimate and it was also memorable.
