Dana and Michelle’s LGBTQ+ engagement session in Aveiro

Celebrating love: a forest engagement session for LGBTQ+ couples

Dana, Michelle and I met at  Exodus Aveiro Fest a while back and after talking to them for a bit, it was clear that their love was special. Their relationship was lovely, quirky, and right out fun. It was evident that they were meant for each other and I just had to capture it all.

After a few texts and setting a date, we set out into the beautiful pine forests of my own backyard, right here in Aveiro. As is usual this time of the year, the light incredibly soft, golden and just perfect. The sun shining through the trees and evening mist, the forest provided the perfect backdrop for capturing their love. One of the highlights of the shoot was meeting Hazel, Dana and Michelle’s adorable furry crazeball of Swiss Shepard. Hazel brought so much joy and excitement to the shoot, and he made sure to be in all the photos.
Watching Hazel play with Dana and Michelle was a beautiful reminder of the love and companionship that pets can bring to our lives.

Dana and Michelle are completely in sync with each other. Their love was effortless, natural and it was an honor to capture it all in such a beautiful setting.

It’s very rare that I share an entire gallery of photos from a shoot. However, I was so proud of the images that we captured that day that I wanted to share them all.
