Sónia & Greg's wedding - Sintra, My Vintage Wedding

Olá! Já de férias? Se sim, terão tempo para mais uma longa história! Vá, que esta vale muito a pena…

Por agora estamos em velocidade cruzeiro com casamentos e edição. Mas não queríamos deixar de voltar ao blog.

Era uma vez o dia mais quente do ano de 2018, o 4 de Agosto bateu o recorde! Temos que confessar que tivemos muita dificuldade para fotografar no exterior. Tal como se fosse um dia gelado e chuvoso de Inverno! Sofreu-se lá fora! De tal forma que em Sintra marcavam 44ºC!

Enfim, sofremos bastante mas valeu muito a pena. Foi a primeira vez que fotografámos na famosa Quinta d’Arriaga, ou The Quinta - My Vintage Wedding. Quando chegámos ficámos em êxtase! Não podíamos estar mais contentes por ter a oportunidade de fotografar um casamento aqui. (Já agora, o sítio onde o noivo se preparou, o icónico Palácio de Seteais, é igualmente incrível!).

A Sónia e Greg confiaram em nós. Divertimo-nos imenso com eles, familia e amigos. E no final, cereja em cima do bolo: Original Bandalheira a animar! Que energia!!!

Vejam e digam qualquer coisa se gostarem!


Hi! Are you on holidays already? Well, if so, you’ll have time for this long story…

We’re full speed with weddings and editing, but wanted to blog again.

Once upon a time, the 4th of August of 2018, there was record of the warmest day of the year. We must confess, it was a bit difficult to photograph outdoors. The same difficulty of a cold and rainy winter day. It’s was hard to go outside. Here, in Sintra, the temperature was 44ºC!!

Anyway, we suffered a lot this day but it was totally worth it! It was our first time in the famous venue Quinta d’Arriaga, or The Quinta - My Vintage Wedding . We felt overwhelmed when we arrived there. We couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to photograph a wedding here. (By the way, the place where groom was getting ready was also iconic! The Tivoli Palácio de Seteais!)

Sónia & Greg trusted us. We had a blast with them, their friends and family. But the night was even more crazy because this guys: Original Bandalheira.

Have a look. Fell free to send us some love if you like it!


Rosarinho & António - Wedding at Quinta das Torres | Azeitão

Fotografar casamentos traz-nos muitas coisas boas. Uma delas é poder conhecer sítios novos, lindíssimos que o nosso país tem para acolher quem se vai casar. Fotografar em locais diferentes é como combustível para a nossa imaginação. Inspira-nos! O cérebro não pára, as ideias surgem e o prazer de fotografar multiplica-se.

Foi o que aconteceu neste casamento que vos mostramos a seguir. Desde a preparação, à igreja e terminando na quinta, tudo foi perfeito! Conhecemos possivelmente a venue mais bonita que já fotografámos em Portugal: a Quinta das Torres, em Azeitão.

Se escolhêssemos uma só palavra para descrever este casamento seria: “Luz”. Porque desde a de Lisboa, ao pôr do sol na quinta, acabando na festa e nos neons… foi sempre a luz perfeita.


Photographing weddings brings us many good things. One of them is being able to know new, beautiful places that our country has to welcome those getting married. Shooting in different places is like fuel for our imagination. It inspires us! The brain goes into full-throttle, ideas arise and the pleasure of photographing multiplies.

This is what happened in this marriage that we will show you next. From the preparation, to the church and ending at the farm, everything was perfect! We know possibly know the most beautiful wedding venue we have ever photographed in Portugal: Quinta das Torres, in Azeitão.

If we chose a single word to describe this marriage it would be: "Light." Because from the luminosity of Lisbon, to the sunset at the farm, culminating at the party and the neons ... there was always a perfect light.

Joana & Rúben: At the old mine

We were searching for the perfect couple to shoot in an abandoned mine we’ve known some time ago. We wanted to be like this: dark, dusty, raw, dry.

Joana and Rúben took the challenge.

What we’ve learned from them: “Be different. Be passionate. Be good. Find your style. Find yourself.”

Visiting Portugal: a family vacation in Lagos, Algarve

Portugal and Algarve are trendy now. We're happy with that.

We love welcome people visiting our country, our cities, our beaches. The cherry on the top of the cake, is by living here, to be part of some of this people holidays.

Ronald is also a photographer in Washington DC, US. He founded us on Instagram and asked if we could register some of their family time visiting Algarve. They wanted to have some pictures taken in a typical portuguese beach town and after on a beautiful beach. So, this time the choice was Lagos. We had a great time together. Their little boy help us a lot playing all around. We end up in Camilo beach, just for us! 

Hope this brings a fresh summer vibe we're missing already!
