Julia + Fabio

A Photographers’ Wedding Anniversary Commemoration

Today I’d like to take a moment to talk about Fabio and Julia, a photographer couple from Brazil. A few years ago, sick of their very demanding job (Fabio was a graphic artist and Julia used to work in the fashion industry), the crowded city they were living in and the heavy traffic, they decided to leave everything behind them to experience a much simpler life on the other side of the ocean. This is the story of how they arrived in Dublin and stayed for a year living in a community house, in the middle of nowhere, travelling around Europe. When they finally got back to Brazil, Fabio dedicated himself to photography, soon joined by his wife, to now form the “Duo Borgatto“.

We had the pleasure to meet with this lovely couple, first in Paris last Summer, then in Brazil at the beginning of the year. This is when they told us about their story and confessed that since their experience in Dublin, they hadn’t really been able to even properly decorate their apartment, their will to go back to Europe, this time for good, being so strong.

So, good news for who is still desperately looking for a photographer to shoot their wedding this Summer: Fabio and Julia will be back in France, and available to shoot your wedding or anything else in July, and then again from mid August to mid September (you can also think about them for next year!). I can assure you they would be thrilled to meet with you and photograph your love. Also, do not hesitate to spread the news, you’d be doing them a big favour helping them develop their business here in Europe!

In the meanwhile, here’s a little session they realized for their wedding anniversary – a big selfie photoshoot! When the photographers are in front and behind the camera…

A little worldcup parenthesis: I wanted to use the expression “rockstar photographers” to talk about Fabio and Julia, but I’d rather mention them as “football star photographers”, literally (and you can have a look at their pictures of Neymar as a best man at this other great football player Ganso’s wedding).

Maélika + Onasis

A Honeymoon Photo Shoot in Argentina

Ever thought of having a honeymoon photo shoot? This couple travelled to Argentina and contacted a local photographer to have memories of their holiday… What a great idea! Photography by Daniela Liska out of Argentina.
And PS: I love the bride’s shoes!

The word of the photographer.

Maélika contacted me last year, as soon as their honeymoon was planned and everything was booked; they knew the honeymoon would in Bariloche and wanted to have a good memory of their journey!
Onasis and Maélika traveled from Belo Horizonte, Brazil to Argentina. We met to coordinate everything and while the wether was not very kind at first, the climate turned incredibly nice for us later.
She thought about every detail with great taste, and let me tell you a secret: she did the bouquet herself with roses cut from the gardens of the hotel where they stayed, it couldn’t be any cuter!

Cynthia + Arnaud

A Couple Shoot at an Abandoned Area Close to Paris

Jean-Laurent Gaudy, the author of this series of pictures is one of my favorite French photographer. We got to physically meet last November, and he and his lovely wife Caroline (who owns a blog at littlecrazyme.com) quickly became friends. A few weeks ago, he was looking for a couple for the one-to-one session he was going to have with Willy Brousse and kindly thought about Marcio and I. I was back then 8 and a half months pregnant, hence maybe not his best option, but my sister and brother-in-law (whose wedding you may remember) volunteered and I have to say that when I saw the result, I felt quite jealous! I couldn’t resist showing you a little extract, I hope you’ll like it as much as I do!

As I said before, those pictures were taken by Jean-Laurent Gaudy; he’s currently living close to Paris, but is leaving us to start a new adventure with Caroline in New York City. I couldn’t but recommend him if you or your friends are looking for a photographer there: he’s nice, takes good pictures AND has a lovely french accent!



Here’s about this session from my sister’s point of view.

I have to say Arnaud wasn’t all motivated at first – he even told our friends he was doing this for me! But then the day arrived, we met with Jean-Laurent and Willy and felt so comfortable that what Arnaud thought was going to be an effort ended up being one very nice moment we had for just the two of us, without the kids: we had fun, we cuddled (!) and spent time with lovely people… And well, I guess you can imagine our reaction when we actually saw the result!! As for me, as I told my sister, I liked Jean-Laurent and Willy so much I wish we were actual friends!
