Algarve Wedding Dress Photoshoot – Vale d’Oliveiras
The Algarve is considered to be one of the best places for a bridal shoot due to its large variety of beaches. We have blue skies and beautiful golden light. Today we were shooting something special – wedding gowns. Most of us have probably dreamed of wearing a white wedding dress one day. We collaborated with Chase Brides, a bridal shop located in Albufeira. They were able to provide us with four fabulous wedding gowns.
The hair and make-up was done by one of the most famous make-up artists in the region – Ana Viera (visit her on facebook) and her student Vanessa Martins. We had a very tight schedule as I had to leave the Algarve already the following day. First we shot in the gorgeous Vale De Oliveiras Resort, and a few hours before the sunset, we were able to take some romantic shots in Praia de Sao Rafael. Although the beach wasn´t very busy at that time, our brides still got a lot of attention, and people were not stingy with compliments.
Even if it was a exhausting photoshoot, it was all worthwhile and we couldn´t be happier with the result. Looking forward to new exciting projects with Chase Brides and Ana.
