{shoot} autumn love

You might remember {Piteira Photography} duo from this adorable Lisbon engagement session and now they're back with this adorable shoot taken in the south-central part of Portugal called Alentejo.  Kerry was kind enough to share some details about that day. "This shoot was styled and photographed for the second issue of S Magazine, an online wedding inspiration magazine published by the innovative (and gorgeous!) Portuguese wedding blog Simplemente Branco. The theme was "Color" and since it was published in the fall, we wanted to bring that feeling across in the production. Portugal is a stunningly beautiful country with an abundance of gorgeous and varied landscapes, we wanted to showcase the natural beauty of this place by styling a wedding in the great outdoors... a celebration of nature, sunshine, simple pleasures, and above all, love!"
"Using a colour palette of reds, oranges and yellows, the design team put together a simple yet stylish altar by the side of the lake and set up a rustic table with olive branches and wild flowers arranged in mismatched glass bottles. The emphasis was on a rustic and easy to achieve aesthetic, to show potential brides that you don't need to spend heaps of money to create beautiful wedding decor. We also made a point of using as many recycled items as possible, the glass bottles and jars on the table and in the trees were collected by us all in the months leading up to this session, the olive branches were cut from the garden on the morning of the shoot... the altar was built on site with colourful ribbons and several bamboo branches... anything is possible with a bit of imagination!"
