HOW DID YOUR PASSION FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY COME ABOUT IN YOUR LIFE? WHY DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS?

Being passionate about life and all the beautiful things of the everyday life, and loving to photograph people, I feel that wedding photography gives me the best of both worlds. I love to meet new people and to get along with them. So, being with them in such an important day, seeing them enjoying life with every fibre of their being, and being able to register those moments so that they can always be remembered, thrills me like no other kind of photography. I am there, I feel alive in the presence of all that, and I have total freedom to tell the story of that day according to my point of view. I am not particularly great with words, so I let my photographs speak for me. I hope they my feelings.

DO YOU OFFER AN ENGAGEMENT PHOTOSHOOT?

Yes. In my opinion it is extremely important to make a photoshoot before the wedding day. Especially so that we can know each other better and so that you get more comfortable with my presence and the presence of the cameras. Therefore, everything will flow very naturally in your big day, and you will be able to enjoy it more with your friends and family.

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO WE GET? ARE THEY EDITED? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THEM?

Until eight weeks after the wedding day you will get access to an on-line gallery with about 1200 photographs edited by me, one by one. This gallery is the best way for you to share the photos with your family and friends, being enterily free to download the images. In case you choose the pack which includes a physical album, two weeks after receiving the gallery, you will receive a digital album preview. After that, depending on your approval, you will get the printed album. In the end you will also get a wooden box with some printed photos and a pen-drive with all the gallery photos in high resolution.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT OF YOUR WORK? HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

I try to be very discreet and to intervene the less possible during the day. I try to prevent my presence from disturbing the moments or the way people are living them. It is very difficult for me to identify with any particular style. Although I consider my work some kind of photo-journalism, as I simply portray what is happening, the truth is that my vision, the way I choose to frame things and the things I choose to pay attention to, result in a very subjective work, but always very spontaneous and natural.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE? DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH IN YOUR COUNTRY? WOULD YOU TRAVEL TO OTHER COUNTRIES?

Currently, I spend my life between Caldas da Rainha and Leiria, in Portuguese west coast. I love to travel and to explore new cultures and traditions, so I am available to travel anywhere.

DO YOU WORK ALONE OR AS A TEAM?

I usually prefer to shoot alone. But, if for any reason, there is the need of a second photographer, I can always bring someone of my trust to photograph with me.

DO YOU ALSO DO VIDEO OR ONLY PHOTOGRAPHY?

I only do photography, but I can recommend some video teams that have a similar way of working.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST IN WEDDINGS? DO YOU GET EMOCIONAL?

Of course, didn’t I say I was a hopeless romantic? Hehe I love to see people getting emotional, but I also like the unexpected, and all those small moments that happen between everything that was planned for the day.
