Their love story sounds like a film. Flavia is from Switzerland and Valter is from Brazil, and that’s how the story starts.
They met for the first time when she was only 15, and basically instantly fell for each other. He was only temporary in Switzerland and a good few years older than her, so nothing really happened… a few emails here and there, and a couple of times when they met amongst friends. To an outsider, it might have seemed like a little fling, but not to them. An incredible five years later, they started writing emails again. Both in a way at a cross road in their lives, they reconnected and realised that they never really forgot each other, never really stopped thinking about each other. They knew they had to see each other again, in order to find out if this really was the real thing. And in a brave move, Flavia flew out to Brazil to meet Valter again… the rest is history, so they say. See, I told you it sounded like a film.
We had the great privilege to document Flavia and Valter’s wedding day in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The day was full of love and beauty, and – since we really were in Brazil – definitely a lot of fun too!
