We met up with Nicole and Peter for their Praia São Rafael beach engagement session and it was pretty magical. Im really not the kind of person to use the word magical very often, but they are a stunning couple and we enjoyed getting to hang with them so much. Praia São Rafael is a gorgeous beach and the perfect location for Nicole and Peter to document this time in their lives. Nicole’s Aunt lives right up the hill and she spent loads of time here as a child with her family. So to come back as an adult with her soon- to- be husband was definitely sentimental. Nicole and Peter met and live in New York, Its always so much fun for us to catch up with some americans. We laughed so hard at Peters stories of his time as an american in Portuguese culture. We started the shoot on the beach and wandered up to the cliffs. The cliffs are a maze of crevices and paths. The same paths that Nicole ran through with her cousins up to her Aunt’s house. We loved that this place meant so much to her. This shoot was a mixture of the past and future and we were so happy to document it. Congratulations Nicole and Peter! We know you will have a gorgeous wedding day and wish you both all the best!
