Fall in love with these women at their Chilean engagement shoot at La Vega Central Market

Camila is a makeup artist and Pilar is a visual artist who live in Santiago, Chile. Their Chilean engagement shoot was seriously destined to be an exercise in creativity, light, and contrasts.

The suspenders, the hairstyles, and the gritty meets colorful meets slick backdrop made my day. I'm sure it will make yours, too.
