Love Bears is a photography brand founded by real-life couple Fran and Mils. Photography is their shared passion and one of the things that brought them together as a couple all those years ago. They are both creative individuals, which means they have unbridled artistic spirits, and their photography is proof of that. As a photographer duo in love, Fran and Mils have a unique perspective to bring to weddings. They notice the smaller details; the hidden hand squeezes, the silent happy tears, the quiet moments between the bride and groom. These are the things that make a wedding special, and these are the things that shine through the lenses of Fran and Mils.
Using their Creative Backgrounds
Having a background in design has helped us in many areas. Like any business, image, consistency, and aesthetics are one of the most important parts of defining the style and direction of a brand, and precisely in that, it has helped us a lot. On the other hand, it helped us pay attention to every detail, understand the different styles, and look for new perspectives. Being a musician entails a certain sensitivity about how reality is perceived while having the freedom to express yourself. Also, it is the best way to communicate without using words. Similarly, we can associate it with how we like to make people feel different emotions when projecting our vision.
“Sentimental, Romantic, Modern”
We believe that each person portrays their way of loving differently. We always try to find honesty and the vulnerability someone feels in front of true love. At the same time, one of the things we enjoy most about our work is that it allows us to see each person's sense of style, which we complement with a fashion-inspired editorial approach.
Capturing Unique Aspects
It is essential for us the relationship we establish with each couple before working together. That's the key to creating different stories based on the couple and keeping them as authentic and timeless as possible.
There are many shots we like, but we absolutely love when couples decide to read their vows. We can capture their love and sincerity at its purest.
Black & White Photography
We both have different tastes. Fran likes the sentimental and timeless feel of black and white, while Mils loves color and how to manipulate a creative style aligned with cinema.
Most Inspiring Destination Wedding
Over time we have been able to work in different countries, and we can say that Italy's artistic and cultural history has made it our favorite destination so far.
Bucket List Destinations
There are a lot of places in the world that we still want to visit, but at the moment, we would love to work and explore more of South America.
Analog vs Digital
Analog photography or filmmaking offers a nostalgic and imperfectly perfect feeling that we think digital can't replicate. Also, it makes you more aware of what you want to capture and how you want the composition.
