Lovely couple in Budapest
The Fisherman’s Bastion
March is always a month of inspiration. There is Spring coming, but also the yearly meeting of the Fearless Conference in Europe, this time in Hungary. And I also had the opportunity to shoot a lovely couple in Budapest, that filled me with energy for the rest of the season.
Budapest, what a wonderful city! I wanted to go there in 2015 to do a photoshooting at the Fisherman’s Bastion, a wonderful area. Didn’t find the time to do it two years ago. When I heard the Fearless Conference was going to happen in Hungary, that was my chance.
This evening will stay deeply in my memories. Started by night, under the rain, in an unknown city, I was totally out of my comfort zone… Hopefully, my good friend Marion was there with me, helping me with the light, motivating, and always a good idea…
Thank you so much Vera and András, for the good energy that is shining around you, thank you so much as well, Lili and Dani, to let me discover this lovely couple, and for helping me setting up this photoshooting. And special thanks to Marion who assisted me for the light that crazy evening, it was such good to have you!
Vera and András:
The photo shoot was a spontaneous idea and those ideas are usually the best. Of course we love spontaneity but when we were driving to pick Louis up, I remember thinking that it was already dark. Rain was coming, and it was just too cold for wearing only a summer dress, so this shooting might as well have turned into a disaster altogether.
However, as soon as we arrived at the Fisherman’s Bastion and Louis pointed the camera at us for the first time I totally forgot about all my presentiments. During the shooting I just felt so amazing. I could enjoy every bit of it. The rain, the shimmering lights, the atmosphere… It just felt so natural and easy to stand there hugging and kissing each other like we would be on a romantic first date. I just felt that we got closer while we were continuously focusing on each other for a couple of hours. It just never happens in real life anymore because we are too busy working and dealing with our lives. When we got home we both thought that we wish we could do this again tomorrow.
