Story

I’m in love with vintage cars, and I’ve always wanted to photograph a couple with a white Volkswagen Beetle. Understandably, when my couple arrived in exactly this type of car for their rehearsal dinner, I was completely surprised. I was super excited right away because I didn’t want a just another normal rehearsal anymore.

They were very connected and we always tried to have moments of authenticity in our sessions; I left them alone for a while and took this image through the vehicle’s windshield. Everything fell into place perfectly.

Photographer Brazil sony a7iii rokinon 35mm 1.4
We are Léo and Sudy. Passionate about life, we love photography, music, and animals. We believe that we are made of memories, we are the places we know, the people we live with, the laughs we share… And photography says a lot about that. We embarked on this adventure 3 years ago, and since then, we have fallen even more in love with this universe and have given ourselves entirely to recording stories of unique people who are not afraid to live intensely every second.
