Today I am thrilled to share this colourful sensual urban couples shoot in Valparaíso.
Images were captured by Sandrachile.
SandraChile, the eye behind the lens was born and raised in Chile, but now lives in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania (USA).
She is a passionate rabbit lover, a ferocious advocate for animal welfare, and a supporter of conscious living.
She is in love with taking pictures of fascinating individuals, whom like myself, are free spirited, wanna travel the world, like to laugh out loud, wanna eat without gaining weight and most of all, want to never be silent about things that matter.
She specialises in photographing FUN couples who like to do things a lil’ bit different, who treat their wedding day as a chance to celebrate their personalities, and who celebrate their personalities by embracing the spontaneity of life.
When you hire her, you will have a photographer who “gets you” like a friend would, someone who understands that you are passionate about living, and will capture this special day with the intensity and creativity that your soul deserves.
She says of the shoot…
Chile is amazing. But there is a town in the middle of the country that is my refuge when I feel tired, when I feel I lack creativity, but most of all, It is the only place that makes me feel home.
Only two hours from Santiago, the capital, Valparaíso spreads across a series of hillsides that form a natural amphitheater overlooking the sea.
With houses climbing Its hills like in kaleidoscopic colors, for years has welcomed poets, artist, singers, and every possible bohemian soul.
This is what makes Valparaíso the lively, hip, artsy, and inspiring town it is.
The culture comes out through the architecture, style, street art, night life, and live music.
Rodrigo and Vivi grew up there.
So did I. In fact, Vivi’s mom was classmates with my own mom all through high school.
Vivi met Rodrigo through her brother.
You know, the little nosy sister that shows up when the friends of the brother come to visit.
Well, one day the little sister was not so little anymore, and when that happened, love exploded between these too, and with that, some drama rolled on, as Vivi’s traditional parents were panicking that their little daughter was dating a guy almost 10 years older!
Luckily, time made Vivi’s family realise these 2 loved each other.
They now share a life together, a business called Portales Fit, the first outdoor Functional Training (aka Crossfit) and a love stronger and tougher than the marathons they like to run.
They decided to have this amazing urban couples shoot to make their parents believe they had eloped.
I heard there were at least 2 heart attacks after the pictures arrived!. Just kidding … nobody got hurt!!
Thanks to Sandra for sharing this sensual urban shoot.
I love the edginess of the graffiti against the neutral tones of the architecture around, just brings the images to life.
Their laughter too lights up the images and their happiness and contentment is evident.
