Story

This was a bridal editorial session where we wanted to propose something a little different and relaxed. Two girls eloping on their own at this secluded villa in Tulum, having dinner and eding the day jumping in the pool and having fun. The neon was a big part of this styled shoot and I loved how it looked glowing inside the pool in the evening. We shot from before sunset till the evening so the final style of the editorial would mainly reflect on the moodiness and glow of the neon.

Directions

CalmIntimatePosedLying Down

“Girls, please position your bodies in opposite directions while being horizontal, so it looks like you are floating. Put your heads very close together, leaning on each other, close your eyes to look relaxed, and lean your head towards the outside a little, so I can see your profiles partially. Very important, I asked one of them to touch the other girl’s head, because since they were’t looking at each other, I didn’t wan’t to reflect distance or coldness, the touch of the hand would bring that loving touch that it was missing.”

Photographer Mexico Sony A7 iii Sigma 35mm f/1.4
Hi! I’m Conie, I’m a lover of visual arts and an admirer of handcrafted things. Traveling and nature are my favorite things in life, it’s where I find peace and recharge. I love observing people from new cities interacting in the mundanity. And I enjoy quiet moments at home a lot too. Photography has been a part of my life since little and I jumped into it since I had the capacity to choose how to express myself in life and in the artistic world, I’m passionate about documenting little parts of life, reflecting on what I saw or felt, for the future me to be able to remember and revive. Being able to document people’s love stories it’s a beautiful thing I get to do for a living.
