Story

This image was taken at the very end of our session with this couple. Before starting the photoshoot, we had a mood board created with all the inspirations and visions we were going for and it helped a lot to achieve the look we wanted.

For this photo specifically, we asked them to embrace each other, close their eyes and leave only their faces out of water. We posed them in the most shallow part of the pool to help them float and went on adjusting little details in order to find the best composition.

The most difficult part was to communicate with them during this time, cause they had their eyes shut and drowned ears, but like sculptors, my wife and I were moving and adjusting them from outside.

Gabri Palmieri

Photographer Mexico Canon EOS R6 Sigma 35mm 1.4
Hey y’all, we’re Carla and Gabri Palmieri and we shoot weddings for living. Being able to witness love in its many forms, day after day, it’s a real privilege and makes life colorful. Our mission is to show people that real love is not an old fashioned idea and is still alive! She is Mexican and he’s Brazilian and they call Mexico home (for now haha). We’re always traveling tho, that’s how our paths crossed and now we get to do it together.
