Story

Coty and Rodrigo are an outstandingly talented couple. Their creative, peaceful and euphoric vibe caught us immediately and fueled us with inspiration. Our vision was to capture an activity, they do as a couple, which defines their relationship best. Together they spend most of their days heading out early to a secluded beach, surfing till noon. We met them at a tiny taco restaurant and followed them to their favorite surfing bay.

We started at 11am to shoot, the time was limited, as they had an appointment right after it. It was insanely hot, the sun stood high, the light was harsh and the conditions made us feel very insecure. We said to ourselves: ‘Let’s pretend we got this’

The funny thing is: these pictures turned out to be some of our favorites ever. So, lesson learned: It’s not about external conditions, it’s about whether you are willing to adapt to the situation and to go all in, or not.
We hope everyone can feel the love and their unique spirit through our Photographs.

SAM & LARISSA

Photographer Aschaffenburg, Germany Canon R6 Canon 24-70
this is us. We are Samuel & Larissa, our story started more than 22 years ago in first grade, where we met. In 2014 at a Festival things slowly started to change and we suddenly began to see each other through different eyes. Ever since we are in love and can’t get over how many insane and amazing things we have already experienced and mastered together. During the past 7 years, we’ve traveled in 4 different vehicles through more than 20 countries, made friends all over the world and always ended up in absurd and hilarious situations. It feels like we have lived many different lives together, always knowing: the best is yet to come. To us, It Often feels like, life is just about the glories moments, but this is kind of a misconception. We force ourselves to embrace the lows and downs as much as the highs and keep reminding ourselves that there’s no light without the dark. This is why we encourage the people we work with, to be authentic, real and to let it flow. It’s not about perfection, it’s about celebrating the moment, cause everything’s changing.
