Life at home can get pretty hectic some days, especially during these strange times we’re living. We’re all stuck at home, doing our best to raise our children, working hard on our jobs and trying to keep our mental health in check.

One of the many things I do regularly is browse the archive and go through the photos of one particular year. Today was no different, and the trip to Açores to shoot a very intimate celebration came up on my screen.

As I always do, I arrived a few days before the wedding and took that time to settle in and drive around the island of São Miguel. It was my first time in Açores and I wanted to see what the fuss was all about – I’ve always been told that the Açores were (and are) one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

The expectations were high, and the views did not disappoint. Lush green pastures and perfect tarmac roads lined with hydrangeas make for an incredible landscape. In contrast, the coastline is sharp, dark, angry, beautiful and humbling all at the same time.

It was an incredible experience and I can’t wait for all of this to end so we can go back to exploring new places. Until then, here are a few images from that trip.

I’m building a new gallery and will be offering prints for a limited time soon. Email me if you can’t wait to have one of these on your walls!

All shot on a Fujifilm X100F and edited with Fotografamos Presets.

Adorei a dos banhistas! Parece um cenário tão improvável de ter gente a mergulhar e deu-me vontade de ir experimentar a água. Aquelas escadinhas estão mesmo a convidar 🙂
