I sea you

Remember the lovely couple Nadine + Gonçalo, who shot their gorgeous engagement session on the grounds of the Mafra National Palace? Well, that was part one. Part two whisked them away from the green gardens to the blue sea, on the stunning Foz do Lizandro beach in Ericeira. The bright sunshine, the perfect breeze and the love in the air did the rest…















A picture of tranquility and pure love, the secret to timeless and gorgeous photography according to Retractus.

The first look

Kristen, who’s American, and Filipe, who’s Brazilian, met in Portugal while serving on a volunteer mission… their hearts went out to each other and the rest, as they say, is a beautiful love story. Before their wedding in the United States, they decided to come back to where it all started. First stop, Cabo Espichel in Sesimbra, followed by Serra da Arrábida… because we should always return to the places that make us happy.


































The first look… what a great idea and what stunning photography by Rodrigo Silva!

Love in the palace garden

Imagine exploring the gorgeous gardens of a stunning baroque palace, hand in hand with the love of your life… That’s exactly what Nadine + Gonçalo did on the grounds of the Mafra National Palace and the end result couldn’t be prettier: a calm and romantic e-session, with a touch of enchantment. And that is definitely one of Portugal’s many strong points – there are so many amazing monuments and secret spots to discover together.

Lost in Lisbon

What could be more perfect for starting out your bride and groom scrapbook than an engagement session in the beautiful and bright streets of Lisbon? That’s exactly what Rita + Vítor did, with Hello Twiggs behind the camera! Pink walls for love, gorgeous flowers for a blossoming love story, traditional tiles and unique urban art for a touch of personality and gorgeous light to bring it all together!
























It’s time to get lost in Lisbon with the love of your life!

Tatiana + Timofey, Honeymoon Session

We are constantly talking about the perks of getting married in Portugal and often forget to highlight how it is also a marvelous place for a honeymoon. Lisbon is one of the sunniest cities in Europe and, even in the autumn or winter, most days are bright and sunshiny.


Tatiana + Timofey have chosen Portugal as their honeymoon destination and traveled all the way from Russia. They invited Adriana Morais, The Destination Selected Vendor, to do a photo session to mark the occasion.


Adriana, delightfully, captured their passion and enchantment as they strolled around Lisbon landmarks, Terreiro do Paço and Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara, and by the seaside in Cascais.


Through these lovely and beautiful pictures you can feel the Lisbon magic and catch a glimpse of how admirable your honeymoon can be in Portugal.

Carrie + Miguel, by Paper Kite

Angela of  Paper Kite Photography kindly sent us the lovely e-session of Carrie and Miguel.  Carrie is the successful author of WishWishWish, a style blog which you must get to know if you don’t know it until now.


I am particularly fond of her sense of style and her love for Portugal, where she travels often. From the various posts about our country, I highlight her own Lisbon guide.  It’s funny to observe that her choices of shops and eateries are surprisingly similar to mine.


As they were over in Lisbon, checking out wedding venues for their Spring 2016 wedding, they took the opportunity to have their e-session in the city they both love so much. Angela told us it was “an absolute treat” to photograph them both as they roamed the historic streets of Alfama.  It will be likewise a treat for you to take this romantic journey guided by Angela’s magnificent photographs. A beautiful romance in our (ever so) wonderful Lisbon!
