Dana & Randy – a wedding in Sintra Penha Longa
The coolest, funnest and most colourful celebration we ever had the pleasure of documenting.
Dana and Randy celebrated their wedding at the Penha Longa Resort in Sintra back in 2019 and they brought all their friends and family to celebrate with them here in Portugal. My favorite bit of the day was when Dana changed from her heels to a pair of Nike sneakers and danced the day away in them.
As we’ve been always saying to our couples: comfort before looks. But hey, these bright orange Nikes bring all the style to the table, so why not wear them all day long?
After all was done and dusted, Dana left us a review on Google that left us speechless, but truly reflects what we do and how we do it:
We absolutely adore Pedro and Marina! They are truly special people who are made to do what they do. We wanted a realistic portrayal of what our wedding day was like, without a lot of posing as groups with the bride/groom. They listened to the vision of our day and really contributed to the mood of that day as well. They complement each other so well, with Pedro lightheartedly dancing around throughout the day and Marina eliciting the deep emotions of anticipation and excitement during wedding prep, bringing me and my bridesmaids to tears.
They know what family and love is all about and that translates visually through their photos. I have amazing pictures not only of us two but really wonderful photos of our family and friends. They touch upon all the emotional notes of a wedding day and you end up with photos of moments that you remember, as well as all the ones that were happening around you that you never even knew about. Through their photos, you learn more about your wedding day, not only to relive it as you thought it was but to experience it all over again as if anew through different angles and light.
