I live in Lagos, Algarve, with my Husband, baby girl and 5 dogs. I love good meals shared with good friends, spontaneous road trips, long walks, bonfires that last late into the night and lazy mornings hanging out with my family.
Wedding photography should capture you as you are: No uncomfortable forced poses. No awkward staged scenes – just your love, your happiness and your day, captured in a relaxed, easy going and unobtrusive manner. I won’t get in your way, or boss you around – My aim is to document your day, not dictate it. And you won’t have to worry about the photography – just relax, enjoy your day and let things happen as they should – safe in the knowledge I will be there.
Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is one of the most important decisions you will make. After the months (or years) of planning, the photos will be one of the few things you have left to remember it by – your children’s first family heirloom. It shouldn’t be about ticking one more thing off the wedding-to-do list. It should be about finding someone with whom you both click (check out that for a pun!) and feel comfortable and relaxed around. Someone whose images speak to you. Someone, in whose photos you can imagine yourselves, your friends and your family being in. Someone whose vision and way of seeing the world appeals to your own.
I'm drawn to photographing people and meaningful moments and like to document what I see in an artistic, sensitive and authentic way. Although I am based in Portugal, I travel frequently to the UK and abroad to shoot weddings. If you're planning a destination wedding, please get in touch.
Thanks for being here.
