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!

Let it snow

A nossa estreia. A primeira vez que a Lapela foi fotografar fora do país.

Não resistimos ao convite do Nuno e da Inês para irmos ter com eles a Londres e lá passarmos juntos um fim de semana, na cidade que os acolheu acabadinhos de sair da faculdade. Pudemos conhecer também Cambridge, onde visitámos as suas famosas universidades e os canais. Para além disso fomos brindados com a "besta de leste"... basicamente frio, frio, e mais frio, que apesar de ter atrapalhado um pouco os planos, acabou por nos brindar com a neve! ai a neve!! (o Miguel cumpriu o seu sonho de menino).

Em breve eles estarão novamente por terras algarvias, para comemorar o seu SIM com a família e amigos, certamente num clima bem mais ameno.

Enfim... vejam e pronto. Façam play.


Our very first time we went shoot abroad.

We couldn't resist the invitation by Nuno and Inês to fly to UK and spend a weekend in the city that received  them right after they finish college. They guide us to London and Cambridge where we could see the famous universities and the canals. We were blessed by lots of cold weather that turn things a bit difficult, but fortunately we had snow instead of rain. 

Soon they'll be in their homeland: Algarve - Portugal to say YES in front of their families and friends. For sure in a warmer day.

Have a look. Play the song.

Chhavi & Shawn: from Canada to the Algarve's highlights for their babymoon

Chhavi & Shawn vivem no frio Canadá, pouco convidativo para uns dias de férias antes da sua nova aventura. Procuraram um destino mais quente e acolhedor, para relaxarem por uns dias. Pensaram em Portugal, porque não? Fica quase à mesma distância do tão concorrido Caribe, é mais ameno, seguro e igualmente bonito e ainda desconhecido. Adoraram cá estar, e por isso não quiseram ir embora sem procurar um fotógrafo local para registar esta fase tão especial das suas vidas. Assim foi. Encontraram-nos e fomos dar um passeio idílico pelas famosas maravilhas de Portugal: Praia da Marinha e Senhora da Rocha. 


Chhavi & Shawn are living in the cold Canada. Unpleasant for a short holidays before their next adventure. They search for a warmer and cozy destination to relax a few days. Portugal came up, and... why not? The flight distance is the same as the overcrowded Caribbean, its warm, secure and pretty as well, and still unknown for them. They loved to be here, so they couldn't leave with some professional photos of this special moment they're living. They founded us as the right local photographers to do their pretty babymoon session. We met and decided to go for a walk on the most beautiful Algarve spots: Marinha beach and the Lady of the Rock cliff. The result is here:
