When Anna Devís was growing up in a village near Valencia, Spain, her parents worked as window dressers. She spent hours drawing and painting in their studio as a kid, only to discover a faster, more efficient medium in high school: photography. “I couldn’t always draw the images I had in my mind,” says the 27-year-old, who now manages communications for an architecture firm. Shortly after meeting her now boyfriend, a photographer named Daniel Rueda, in the architecture program at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, they began taking pictures of each other. The pastime has since evolved into a kind of game, where the duo snaps shots of themselves in locations around the globe. Architecture and landscape often play starring roles in their cheery, sometimes silly, natural, light-filled pictures. Each one begins with a sketch, though. “I carry a notebook everywhere,” Devís says. “Each photograph is really rooted in illustration, only it’s real life.”
