{engagement} ana + pedro

if you’ve been reading p&p for a while you probably know how much I heart sofia + andre from {brancoprata} and i’m anxiously waiting to meet them personally on my next trip back to the motherland {hopefully soon} but for now i reminisce of portugal through andré's lovely photos. sofia sent over a sweet engagement session of ana + pedro. the couple decided to use ana’s great-great parent’s house in lixa, portugal for their love shoot. the family home was first a sanatorium and was later converted into a hotel with gorgeous gardens surrounding the property. 

ana’s great-great-father was the first dentist in portugal and the family dedicated a room in the house with his original office filled with papers, books and dentist equipment.

the car belongs to ana’s father and they plan to ride it on their wedding day…

congrats parabéns ana + pedro!!

  10. I just adore this shoot! It has to be one of my faves that's for sure! Not only because of the amazing photos by Andre and Sofia...but because the location is amazing, has a lot of meaning to them, and they are just darling!!! I think Andre needs to start offering photography lessons...in Portugal...I'd love to learn from him ;-)
