For this real couple’s shoot at the recent Boheme Workshop in Messinia, Greece we had two words in mind: Intimacy and simplicity. I wanted to show that engagement photography can be romantic and sexy without being too over the top. And today I’m so honored to have this shoot featured over at the international wedding blog, Hochzeitsguide!
Check out the full post here.
Inspired by both Goddess Gaia, the Greek goddess of the earth and devotion, and Goddess Eros, the goddess of love, we chose to cut out the frills and focus solely on the authentic connection that Alex and Catherine — a global couple with roots in Romania and Greece — have for each other.
Alex and Catherine have so much natural, subtle chemistry. You could see it in the way they moved together: he would move his hips into hers as they embraced, she would reach for his hand as they walked, or (when they thought I wasn’t looking) they’d snuggle close and whisper, smiling to each other as they did. It was such a joy to photograph them.
I hope this shoot inspires other madly-in-love couples to trust that their love alone often makes the best photographs.
