Festivalet 17 craft fair: Behind the cameras

Official Photographers at Festivalet 2017 - The cat, you and us

Smile!

We have been quite MIA during this Christmas season on the blog for a good reason, we were involved for a second year as official photographers at one of our all-time favorite events in the city: the winter market called Festivalet, that took place a week before Christmas day in Barcelona.

We have been admirers of the people organising and selling their arts & crafts at the Festivalet market for very long, but since we are able to be more in touch with them the admiration has grown and grown like a big fat hot air balloon. We are very happy & feel also proud to be able to join a gang of such talented kiddos and feel inspired with them. We really take each picture with lots of love.

So, here it is a little bit of the making of, where you will be able to see how we look while taking pictures – not the usual – & a couple of pictures of the market so you can see what all the fuzz is about (pictures from 3 different days).

Hope you enjoy this different type of post! In the next one we will be once again in front of the cameras too *wink*

I like to hide in places to take pictures with some foliage or anything (really) in between me & the subject. Dani makes fun of it and calls me a paparazzi, ha!

The market took place during the same weekend of The Last Jedi première, the princess had to be with me to help me with finding my inner force to take good pics ;) The t-shirt is a bargain from Primark & love it.

Santa takes good notice of the Festivalet *wink* to buy at least one of my Christmas presents. This time he left me one of these amazing handmade straw bags. Love that it has a little pocket inside to keep the most valuable items, like the phone or purse, to avoid pickpockets (sadly, quite important in Barcelona & any big city)

We stumbled upon this adorable lady and her beau. We follow each other in Instagram, she goes by undiagris, make sure to check it out if you like cats & the prettiest laid-back photography. It felt like hugging an old friend you haven’t seen in a while, to after 30 seconds realize you were just meeting for the first time ever in real life, ha!

Of course we took tons of more pictures during the market. If you are curious, you can check them in the Festivalet official Facebook page!

Have a nice weekend!

    So awesome you guys, I love this behind the scenes type blog post and holy moly, that straw bag is amazing – my dream bag really!! Super congrats you both totally killed it (in the best way possible!) with your awesome photog skills :) :)

      Thank you so so so much! It’s very encouraging coming from you Fee, when you have an awesome photography eye. Million thanks! <3 Oh! and I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to wear the straw bag, it doesn't pair that well with the big winter coats, but it will be the apple of my eyes on spring/summer. Big hug & looking forward to see&read about your new place!
