The couple were great, Vanesa and Diego rock! They just do whatever it takes to get the shot, that's great for me and any wedding photographer ;)
This building is amazing, everybody knows it in Galicia, these couple came from their home town just to have a session in this amazing place.

Vanesa and Diego love this shot and I have to say, I do too.
