This is us, two photographers that just like you and a lot of other couples, enjoy having their picture taken from time to time, so we decided to have a professional photoshoot done.
It’s a great thing, being on both sides of the camera and we definitely not only find it useful but also enjoy it!
We love photos, I bet that was not a secret, but most of the times we take photos of each other instead of together, so it feels great to have a good friend like Martina photograph us for a change. And exactly that is what we want to do for other people, make them feel like there is an old friend standing in front of them and not a total stranger.
We had a lot of fun doing these pictures with her, they were taken at Paradisus Palma Real and we were just overwhelmed by this incredible resort. Feeling like complete tourists even though we have been living in Punta Cana for years.
Standing there I suddenly realized how people actually feel in front of the camera and how exposed you are in a way, so it really helps to understand as a photographer what things to say or to do in some situations.
We consider ourselves to be spontaneous and relaxed, with a camera in front of us or not. And we love to do everything we can to make people feel the same when we are photographing them. Showing your true feelings, laughing together and even sometimes laughing at each other is the best recipe for great photos.
Martina did a great job guiding us and letting us know what to do so that we could really show our best selves. She has an eye for details and little moments that made us feel like she captured our real selves when looking at her photos.
We met Martina a few years ago here in Punta Cana but she actually lives in Mexico now and works for a company called Del Sol as a wedding photographer, and just like us she loves her job and she is great at it!
For some people having a photoshoot means stress and having to do awkward, almost unnatural poses but it’s actually completely the opposite. It is meant to bring us together, be with each other and enjoy each other’s company without anything else standing in the way.
So we invite you to try it, feel it, love it and we can assure you, you won’t regret it!
