Can you describe your style as Algarve Wedding Photographer?

Our style is described as romantic, natural and candid. It is based on wedding photojournalism, dominated by fine art and fashion photography. The results are creative photos which are romantic, fun and emotional. We do our very best to create photographs which honour and preserve your story. Read more about us.


How do you photograph weddings?

As your Algarve Wedding Photographer, we almost always shoot together as a couple. Having two photographers plays a huge role in capturing a complete story of your event. We then have freedom to take photographs of different angles and perspectives. The very same time we can document smaller and larger details of your ceremony. Details that you most likely cannot live without. You have probably spent thousands of euros on the details of your special day. Like rings, the floral arrangement, centerpieces, the venue, etc. We will capture them with the same attention.

As photographers, we believe in wedding reportage, non-staged and natural photos. We will accompany you throughout your most important day. Covering everything from the very first getting ready photos of the bride and groom until the end of the special day venue. Here and there we might even hold your hand, helping you with some advice and taking care of you. Please see our rates for further coverage details.

What equipment do you use as our Algarve Wedding Photographer?

There is much more to wedding photography than having nice equipment. However, that is not to say that your photographer should not have good tools. So therefore, we are only working with professional Canon 1Ds & 1Dx cameras and Carl Zeiss lenses, frequently also some Canon L lenses. When it comes to the ceremony or photo shoot, each of us will always bring a backup camera. For underwater groom and bride photos we shoot with professional Nikonos underwater cameras and lenses, at the moment only in Portugal.



Do you do Pre-Wedding, After-Wedding & Engagement Photography?

Yes! We love to tell all stories for people. Pre-Wedding and After-Wedding shootings are our secret favourite, because there will be so much more time compared to your special day. We can take you to a very romantic location. And we can create all the photographs you want with much more planning and also at the best hour of the day.

When can we expect to see our wedding photos?

You will get your photos within three weeks. This is important because some Algarve based Wedding Photographers have a return time of more than six months for your photos. We can guarantee you this because we concentrate on quality, not on the quantity of the ceremonies we shoot.


Would you shoot outside of Portugal?

Absolutely! We love to travel and we have already shot ceremonies abroad. We would just ask our couple to cover our transportation fees, a rental car and two nights’ accommodation. If you can’t, we are open to find more creative solutions, so that we can be there for you on your wedding day. As Maria and Sandy, we really very much enjoy shooting in new locations so please don’t let it be a deal breaker. We are available for all proposals as your Wedding, Elopement, Engagement and Portrait Photographer in Algarve, Portugal and also for destination weddings in the EU and worldwide.

We would love to hear about your Algarve Wedding Photography Dream! Contact us by phone or email, we will talk about everything you want to know.
Oh yes, we speak English, German, Estonian, Portuguese and also some Russian and every time we shoot someone’s special day, we are learning a bit more.
