Susana & João: wedding at Quinta da Murta - Bucelas

Estamos de volta ao blog, desta vez para vos mostrar mais uma história de 2017, que nos levou até Lisboa para fotografar a união da Susana e do João na linda Igreja de Santa Maria em Loures. Este é provavelmente o casal com o riso mais fácil que fotografámos até hoje.

Seguimos depois para Bucelas, até à bonita Quinta da Murta, no meio de uma enorme vinha, com vista para as luzes de Lisboa lá bem ao fundo.

Entre muito vinho, gargalhadas e festa até bem tarde, saíram algumas das imagens que se seguem.

Charlotte & Ryan destination wedding at Caldas de Monchique, Algarve

Although we know that the south of Portugal is known for its beautiful beaches, there’s much more to offer. Near Monchique, in the countryside, there’s a little oasis called Caldas. That was the place where Charlotte & Ryan choose to get married.

There were tears, joy, fun, laughter… there was a band, festoon lights and a barbecue… and of course… there was also a very happy marriage!

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!

Finalmente!

Desta vez quisemos trazer-vos as melhores fotografias de 2017 e um pouco mais de nós também. Novamente o difícil aqui foi escolher quais as melhores? ...o que são melhores fotos? enfim... não sabemos bem essa resposta. Sabemos sim que estas são provavelmente as que mais nos marcam, fotografias que nos fazem viajar atrás no tempo e reviver tudo de novo, ou são aquelas que nos dão aquele arrepio ainda. Porque a fotografia de casamento para nós é isto: imagens carregadas de sentimento e histórias lindas.

2017 foi um ano de evolução, de aprendizagem, de perceber o caminho por onde queremos seguir. Tivemos o privilégio de conhecer e trabalhar com profissionais incríveis, de fotografar novos sítios em Portugal, conhecer ainda mais lugares paradisíacos no nosso Algarve... ouvir histórias felizes e não só, estarmos presentes em momentos que poucos sonham ter acontecido. Por isso estamos gratos, a quem confiou em nós, a quem nos acompanhou e obviamente às nossas famílias e amigos pela força e pelos muitos momentos que não pudemos estar presentes.

Já agora, um grande olá a 2018 e aos casais que estão à nossa espera! até já!


Finally!

This time we wanted to bring you the best photographs of 2017 and a little bit more of us as well. Again, the hardest thing was to chose the best? ... what does “best photo” even mean? Well... We don’t really know the answer to that. What we do know is that these are probably the ones that speak to us the most, photos that make us travel through time and relive everything all over again, or that make us chiver still. Because to us wedding photography is this: images loaded with feelings and beautiful stories.

2017 was a year of evolution, learning and understanding about the path we want to follow. We’ve had the privilege of meeting and working with amazing professionals, of photographing new places in Portugal, of finding even more heavenly places in our Algarve... of hearing happy stories and, not just that, but to be present in moments that only a few can even dream possible. That’s why we are so grateful to those who trusted us, to those who have been with us along the way and obviously to our families and friends for the strength and for those many moments we couldn’t be there for.

By the way, a big Hello to 2018 and to those couples waiting for us! We’ll see you soon!
