This year and as in 2019, we were nominated as finalists in the competition 30 Rising Stars 2020 of Wedding Photography by Rangefinder.
(...) This is one of the most desired and hard to achieve titles in the area of wedding photography, so these nominations make us very happy and proud.
This is the time when, in our life, the rhythm changes: it is the time when we have finally concluded the work of the previous year and we prepare to launch ourselves to the weddings about to start. It is the time when we can self-evaluate and when there is space to determine the targets and set the goals. (...) it is time for balance, time to look inside and to look back so that we can better reach the future. We revisited our work on wedding photography in 2019 and we bring you a selection of some of our favorite photographs.
Our neighbor has a rooster! This wouldn’t be strange if we didn’t live in Porto city center. Perhaps the rooster has lived in the garden next to ours for many months but only now we have discovered it, now that COVID-19 interrupted the world and our work in photography, and locked us down.
Every time the rooster crows, we laugh like fools, for the unusual of having a rooster neighbor, and our little ones cackle and run around the house flapping imaginary wings. On the living room couch, there are landing strips for our rooster-kids' flights...
We all have favorite places and Cabo Espichel is clearly one of mine (this is Raquel at keyboard commands) since the time of Architecture studies and the enthusiastic passion for the Survey on Popular Architecture in Portugal. So, when the opportunity to photograph this wedding in Cabo Espichel came up, my heart was thrilled that one more dream was about to be fulfilled!
And so, in this 1st of May, we look at our closest yesterday, very happy for all the days before and, above all, eager to look to tomorrow.
This is the best of us in 2018. It is the celebration of the extraordinary year we have lived but it is, more than anything, a motivational boost for 2019 that has just begun!
2019 arrived and brought the news: we are among the 25 best photographers in WPJA in 2018. And the best is that this news comes together with another one already from December: we are among the 30 best photographers in This is Reportage.
Angela is from Braga, Laurentiu is romanian. They met somewhere in Europe and they came with their closest ones to make their Destination Wedding in Aldeia de Pedralva, in Algarve.
It was the end of summer, with its long and golden sunsets and it was one of the more joyful weddings of 2017. And this story was yet to be told ...
There is finally a place that takes the wedding photography and discusses it deeply: not on presets or gadgets; hard and pure photography.
‘This is How’ is that place and, on its last edition there is a picture of ours.
