Frequently asked questions
Where are you from?
What’s the best way to reach you?
Shoot me an email or call +351 912657040. We can also setup a meet here in Aveiro
Do you work outside Portugal?
Do you travel outside Portugal for work other than weddings?
Yep! I’ve shot engagement and honeymoon sessions in Oxford, London, Munich, Cairo as well as a few other places here and there. Shoot me an e-mail and I can get your session on the calendar! I do my best to try to stack sessions on top of currently planned trips, but I can always make it out to where you’re at.
What are your portrait/engagement sessions like?
In order to make them more personal, I like to either start in an intentional location such as your home or a location that we pre-pick, even if it’s hours (or days!) away. The focus of these sessions is about connection, relationship, adventure and authenticity. I’m going to make pretty photos, but hopefully these are the kinds of photos that outlast just one moment in your life and will be just as meaningful throughout your marriage. #legacy
How many photos do you deliver?
For a 12 hour wedding, I typically deliver between 500-600. But there are exceptions to every rule.
Do you deliver color copies of the black and white images?
All black and white images are delivered as black and white only.
What is your turnaround time for wedding photos?
I usually take 4-6 weeks, but during the high season (from June – September), the turn around time is between 6-8 weeks due to the high volume of work.
I’d love to have my images in print. Do you sell albums?
Yes! My albums are handmade in Portugal with eco-friendly materials. They are printed on durable, fine art paper and binded with organic linen. There are two sizes – 30x30cm and 20x20cm – and both start at 30 pages. You can see them here.
Do you shoot video?
I don’t. Video should be done by professionals who are passionate about filming your wedding. In case you’d like to have your wedding on film as well, I can refer a few fellow videographers who have a similar style to my photography.
Do you have insurance?
I do; both for my gear and for liability on location.
Do you have backup gear?
I carry two cameras at all times, plus one more in the bag, just in case. The cameras shoot to two separate memory cards, so I’m backing up immediately. I also carry extra lenses and extra memory cards. After every wedding, before I even head home, your images are backed up to five different places.
I’ve heard you are a dog person. Is that true?
Yes! Indie is the best rescue dog ever.
We want you to shoot our wedding. How can we book you?
Awesome! To fully secure your date, I’ll just need a signed contract and a deposit. Shoot me an email and we’ll go over the details.
