Nothing says FUCK YEAH like stripped-back architectural backdrops mixed in with strong clean lines and some edgy swagger… handsomely provided by Markus and Sasha.

Today’s industrial swagger portrait session is raw and sophistication at its best, and swoonaliscious!

The Couple

“We met at the carnival in Cologne in 2005. Before we got married we’d only been together for 6 months.” Nawwwww!

The Location & Shoot

Carlswerk is an urban city quarter spanning ​​approximately 125,000 square meters, with a myriad of small and large business warehouses, restaurants, halls and leisure facilities. “I found this awesome industrial location in Germany when I was at an exhibition and instantly fell in love. And who else could have been better than two gorgeous gentlemen who have been sharing their life together for 11 years.” Says Jen, from Stories by Jen.

“Everything just came together that day: two super handsome guys, a great location, cloudy skies mixed with a beautiful winter sun.”

The Photographer

“We met Jen through a friend and when we first saw her work we knew we wanted to have her as a photographer for our 11 years anniversary shoot.”

“She is very cute. She was working quietly and we always had the feeling of being in a normal surrounding. She had a clear vision of us being in the industrial surrounding.”

Tips for the readers?

On posing for a portrait session: “Just be yourself, have fun and don’t think too much.”

From their photographer Jen:
“This couple shoot was real fun. Sasha + Markus moved in front of the camera like they have never done anything else!”

Sometimes you win and other times you hit the jackpot by finding someone that takes your breath away. Happy 11th year anniversary Markus and Sasha you’ve certainly taken our breath away with your love… and handsomeness.

Fun facts: I'm a "loud" little Latin gurl. I heart my label maker as much as I do my partner. I also like red things, leg-day and red velvet everything. My daily vocab includes "have you eaten?", "I love you" and "I farted"... not all at once or in that order. If I'm not talking to you about feelings I'd be helping you organise something.
