Wedding Photographer Algarve


Who we are

Hi, we are Maria & Sandy, your Wedding Photographer Algarve. We have found each other in 2015, in the Algarve and since then, we are working together on our photography projects, currently in Portugal and Estonia. Maria started out ten years ago in front of the camera, working as a model. At one point she became more and more curious about the photography process and decided to switch sides, when her loving partner Sandy introduced her to photography. Sandy has been a photographer since 2001 and has a vast experience in film and digital. He has worked for various clients in the photography industry. Some of his past clients are DPA, Die Welt, GEO magazine, Der Spiegel.

Maria & Sandy are also photographing with large format cameras, using black and white and colour film. We have our own darkroom, equipped with film processors. Allowing us to develop film from black and white to E6 and C41, from 35mm to large format. Maria and Sandy are also mastering the collodion wet plate process which marks the very beginning of photography in 1851. The result is a completely hand-made and absolute unique photograph which can not be duplicated. Sandy is also shooting underwater sessions, using professional underwater gear.

We love nature, being outdoors and travel. Although we have not done much lately. Our favorite place to visit is the Algarve’s west coast. Being there reminds us how small we are as human in relation to this world and how beautiful and fragile nature is.

We truly believe that if you love what you photograph, you will create great photographs. We definitely love what we do.

Why we photograph weddings

We absolutely love weddings. It is a privilege and great honour for us to be part of your very special wedding day as your wedding photographer, giving you memories that will last a lifetime. Depending on the assignment, most of the time we work together as a team and couple to cover your wedding day for the best possible outcome. We also love to travel, meeting interesting people from different countries and making new friends. In the recent months we have already shot weddings in other European countries like Estonia and Finland.

How we photograph your wedding

As wedding photographer Algarve, we use only professional cameras and only the best Carl Zeiss glass and sometimes also Canon lenses. When it comes to your wedding photography, we will always bring backup cameras with us! As wedding photographers, we believe in non-staged and natural photos, based on wedding photojournalism and influenced by fine art and fashion photography with raw emotions, capturing the true essence. On your wedding 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 wedding venue and sometimes we might even hold your hand. Helping you with some advice, taking good care of you.

You will get your wedding photos within three weeks. This is important because many local wedding photographers have a return time of more than six months for your photos and only some of them are mentioning their schedule online. We can guarantee you three weeks because we concentrate on quality, not on the quantity of weddings we shoot.
