Modernity, serenity and joie de vivre in Porto



Porto is the gateway and starting point for a journey into a scenic and cultural diversity of Portugal. A vibrant metropolis with a charming old town, authentic harbor atmosphere, gentle Atlantic beaches, picturesque river scenery and magnificent vineyards.

It’s the hometown of artists André Teixeiras and Sofia Ferreira of Brancoprata, who this time impress us with a modern, cosmopolitan editorial.

When André strolls the streets of Porto, he transfers the art of living to the camera. Much of what he captures is inspired by the daily gestures of life. What is considered authentically beautiful in his eyes is the reflection of the people on whom the natural light falls and the love of life that is revealed in every scene.

Every day of Sofia is characterized by creativity and light. It is dedicated to craftsmanship and the appreciation of beauty that appeals to all generations. She loves precious materials and interpreting the feel of her projects are her ultimate goal. Sophisticated and refined styling and design are in the cradle of the artist.

In the innovative shoot, Brancoprata fuses colors, shapes, light and shadow into a perfectly shaped work of art. Elegance, creativity and style are woven into the visual language of movement and emotion.

Sofia tells: “It is, in a way, a visual and elegant declaration of the personality of the city of Porto, strong but relaxed, young and brave, liberal, open-minded and resilient, able to face any challenge.

Modernity, serenity and joy are the three words that summarize the goal of this project.

The story is simple: a cosmopolitan couple, obviously in love with the city, celebrates a day full of elements and details chosen especially for the occasion, details that reflect much of their way of being! They also want to show another side of the city that only the locals know and fall in love with every day, a place that is just a step below the clouds.

Who’s to say that Porto can’t just be vibrant, but also modern, spiritual and sophisticated at the same time?”

Seduced by the exclusivity of the setting, the finesse of the styling, the splendor of the flowers and the expressiveness of the images of André Teixeiras of Brancoprata, we marvel at the uniqueness of the whole. And don’t miss watching the refreshing and lively video of Vanessa & Ivo at the end of the blogpost – it’s an experience.
