We came to Ana Lucía with a rather unique request. For our save the date announcements, we knew that we wanted images with a bit more personality than your standard engagement session. Using the phrase ‘taking the plunge’ as our source of inspiration, we thought it would be fun to play with the idea of both jumping into water and being underwater while dressed up in formal wear. Since the juxtaposition of the attire and setting was already the right amount of whimsy that we were looking for, we felt that the additional elements of the photo, such as our poses and expressions, had to be more serious. Overall, we were hoping for an editorial vibe in the style of Vanity Fair.
Despite our tall order and high expectations, Ana Lucía absolutely nailed it. She helped scout various locations beforehand and gave advice on how to look more relaxed even in the freezing water! From her technical expertise to her friendly and accommodating nature, it is clear that we couldn’t have found a more perfect photographer for this shoot. We received the photos in less than a week and everyone has been raving about how incredible and creative they are!

Taking the Plunge.
Every couple is unique, and this one is definitely outstanding: Alicia, an art curator, and Grego, creative director. They wanted their portrait to be something out of the ordinary and far away from engagement sessions clichés (kiss, proposals, romantic gestures).
This couple had a challenging idea: they wanted a controlled, neat, fashionable arranged portrait in the chaotic underwater environment… where weights need to be added for gravity to take control over buoyancy, where expression needs to be calmed while water is coming through your nostrils. The surreal underwater experience gives the situation that eccentricity of their own personalities.
- "Thank you for your trust and great vibes, AnaLu."

Most of the time, you can tell I have a preference for the purist choice, the 50mm, for obvious reasons: makes me get closer and, of course, the natural light: perfect for achieving a soft mood on families and babies.
When it comes to athletes, sessions require a dramatic light and body expression, so we need to strive for intensity. A martial artist wrestler that is a passionate painter… is both mystic and fierce, as the dynamic and
elegant flight of a fencer…
About “A siren story”.
I had the honor of photographing Viviana’s mystical pregnancy, she and her husband Rodolfo, are scuba divers, ocean lovers… they are connecting little Montse to the sea since she was in the womb… now this baby mermaid is getting ready to admire the majestic blue… this is just the beginning…
There’s always a complex character, everyone has a story to tell…
