I love to connect travel and photography! These are my two favourite things. I’m the happiest person in the world when I can photograph couples in different parts of the world! It gives me a unique perspective because trough the couples’ eyes, I can see the places from a different angle and I meet someone who is local. I met Paolo and Ali and their amazing dog Jake, trough my friend who lives in Seattle, Washington. My friend told me that she knows this unique and funny couple. I was intrigued. I met Paolo and Ali in Georgetown – one of my favourite and the oldest neighbourhoods in Seattle. Georgetown is a neighbourhood full of great coffee shops, small restaurants with tasty food, independent galleries and cute, little shops. The idea of the photo shoot was very simple. We decided to walk around Georgetown and just play by the ear! In a place like that and with an open couple, it’s actually very easy. At some point we stopped at the record store called Georgetown Records and asked if we can take a few photos inside. The owner was very welcoming. It gave me the opportunity to get to know Paolo and Ali even better! What I loved the most about this session is that Paolo and Ali were both really open and vulnerable. They weren’t afraid to have fun but also they weren’t afraid of showing their emotions. Plus they brought their cute dog Jake so if you know me, you also know that I’m already sold!
