“ We cannot say enough good about Pedro. We asked him to shoot our wedding in California two years before the date as we knew from the start that he was who we wanted to capture our day. (...) From the very first call, he made us feel comfortable and heard in our hopes for the day. He embodies "go with the flow," but still made sure to give helpful suggestions where he thought it important.(...) At the wedding itself, Pedro became a part of the day. He blended in to the point that everyone forgot to behave like there was a photographer around, which was exactly what we wanted. He captured the smallest moments you wouldn't even think to take a picture of, resulting in photos of laughter and tears that we'll love for the rest of our lives. I cried happy tears upon seeing the photos because he somehow was able to capture the people we love exactly as we see them. Our favorite photos aren't the posed ones (which are gorgeous in their own right), but the ones he snuck while we were lost in the happiness of the day. “

“ I can't recommend Pedro highly enough. Not only he is an amazing photographer but it was so easy to work with him. He travelled for our wedding is Azores and everything went without a hiccup. What amazing attention to detail! “

“ Where to begin? Everything was absolutely perfect! From the moment we received a reply from Pedro and Marina we knew that we had made the right choice. They encapsulate the meaning of professionalism yet somehow manage to capture the day as if they are long lost members of your family. Capturing perfect, sometimes overlooked or forgotten moments. I couldn’t recommend these two highly enough. If you’ve seen their work and like the style/vibe then believe me, you will not be disappointed when you meet/speak to Fotografamos! Still to this day we have strangers contacting us asking who did our wedding photos, and were always more than happy to point them this way. Thank you Pedro and Marina for absolutely blowing our minds with the pictures and moments shared! “

“ Pedro and Marina photographed our wedding in California in 2019 and we have said time and time again that they were arguably the best choice we made about our wedding day. They're so kind, professional, easy to work with, and of course their work is stunning. (...) They captured our day perfectly and made us feel at ease. My favorite part of looking through our photos when we got them (which were right on time) was seeing moments they photographed that I don't even remember being aware of them being there for. They captured up close and personal moments but at the same time were completely out of the way. I would choose them time and time again and truly cannot recommend them enough for both their beautiful work and because they are lovely, generous, amazing people. “

“ There are not enough words to describe how amazing our experience with Pedro was and how grateful we are to have had him photograph our wedding. From the Skype calls to get to know us and surprise planning notebook he sent us, to the "sneak-peak" Polaroids he gave us at the end of the night and the picture video he put together prior to finalizing the photo gallery - Pedro put so much thought and care into the process from the beginning to the end. On the day itself, Pedro felt like one of the family and was truly a joy to be around. As for the final photos, they are beautiful, high-quality, and so life-like - he captured the heart and soul of our wedding. Pedro is an artist and his vision and passion are apparent in every photo. We couldn't be happier with Pedro's work and wish he lived closer to capture every special moment for us!“

“ Pedro & Marina were absolute gems to work with. Not only were they fun, loving, and just a pleasure for us to be around, they wonderfully transformed our memories into something tangible that we can reminisce on for the rest of our lives.

We are forever grateful! Thank you for everything!

"Pedro & Marina did an amazing job photographing our wedding in Portugal. We went through a LOT of photographers portfolios in both the UK and Portugal and Fotografamos stood out immediately. We really wanted to find a photographer with a documentary style of photography, without many posed photos and that's what we got with Pedro & Marina. They capture beautiful moments and did it in a way that didn't interfere with the day at all. We felt really comfortable working with Pedro from the moment we met him and he fitted in straight away with the rest of our guests. This made all the difference.

Pedro shared a huge gallery of pictures with us and we've got far too many favourites to choose from! I would happily recommend Pedro & Marina to my friends/family, they were a joy to work with."

“ We selected Pedro as our photographer for our wedding in Australia after being recommended by another photographer and seeing his amazing portfolio online. From looking at his other wedding shots, I had the sense that I could hear the laughter and music captured in these still shots and I knew we had to book him! He was such a treat to work with and to have around. He made the whole photography experience really natural and easy for my partner and I. We simply enjoyed our wedding day and he worked his magic on the side. I showed a friend a simple headshot that Pedro took of us on the day, and she burst into tears commenting on how genuinely and deeply happy we looked which speaks to Pedro's talent in capturing the raw emotions - exactly what we were after. Thanks Pedro!!!“

“ We absolutely adore Pedro and Marina! They are truly special people who are made to do what they do. (...) 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.(...) They have been a dream to work with and I highly recommend them to any couple or family looking to have a beautiful record of life's most important moments/milestones.“

OK, we've seen all your work and we're ready to book you. What's next?

Great! We can either meet over a video call or grab a cup of coffee if you’re local, and hash out the details. If it feels like the perfect match, all I’ll need is a signed agreement and a 50% deposit.

Where are you located?

I am based in Aveiro, Portugal, living by the river with my beautiful family. I’m just a short drive away from Lisbon (a couple of hours) and 45 minutes from Porto. Regardless of your location within Portugal, all collections cover travel and accommodation expenses. For international inquiries, please feel free to get in touch.

We're planning a destination wedding. Do you travel for work?

Absolutely! I have a passion for traveling and capturing love stories around the world. I’ve had the pleasure of documenting weddings in various stunning locations, including Tasmania, the USAEgypt, Italy, France, and many others. No wedding location is too close, too far, or too remote for me.

How much is the deposit? How can I pay?

You can make payments via Bank Transfer, MBWay, and all major credit cards through Paypal (adds 3% PP fee).

To secure your date, a 50% deposit is required. The remaining balance can be paid in two installments: 25% in the middle of the year and the final 25% two weeks before your wedding date.

If you prefer, we can also discuss a monthly payment plan.

What's your approach when photographing our wedding?

I aim to be a “guest with a camera” rather than a staff member. It’s not uncommon for guests to ask, “Have you been friends with Mel & John since college?” or “Did you meet them at work?” This is because I dress and behave like a close friend, dedicated to capturing their happiness and celebration. My goal is to blend seamlessly into the background and capture all the key moments from an insider’s perspective. For further insight, feel free to check out our Google reviews.

What is an elopement?

An elopement is when a couple gets married without informing anyone beforehand. It’s a way to celebrate and affirm their love for each other without the grandeur of a big, formal wedding. Personally, it’s my favorite kind of celebration: intimate and deeply personal.

We're having more than 150 guests at our wedding. Is that an issue?

While I do have a preference for small and intimate ceremonies, I have experience with larger weddings as well. For events with over 150 guests, I recommend considering the addition of a second photographer to your collection for an additional €450.

The 12 hours might be a little short for our plans. Can you stay for longer?

Absolutely! You have the option to add extra hours for €350/hour on the wedding day. If you already know you’ll need additional hours, you can include them in advance in your collection for a discounted rate of €250/hour.

I’d love to have my images in print. Do you sell albums?

Absolutely! I’m a strong advocate for printed memories, and I take pride in partnering with a local album supplier who crafts them by hand in Portugal, using eco-friendly materials. I offer two sizes (20x20cm and 30x30cm), both printed on high-quality fine art paper and bound with organic linen. For a complete album example, click here. Prices start at €650 for a 20x20cm, 20-page album.

We will have a rehearsal dinner and a day-after BBQ with all the guests. Can you come and photograph those events?

Absolutely! I’m thrilled to be a part of your extended celebrations. My daily rate for additional events is €970 (which includes 3 hours) plus an additional €250/hour thereafter. This way, we can capture all the special moments surrounding your big day.

Do you shoot portraits/engagements?

Yes! It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know each other and create a comfortable atmosphere. I understand that being in front of the camera can sometimes feel awkward, but I’m here to ensure it’s a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Engagement sessions start at €650, plus any applicable travel fees.

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 somewhere 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

We don't speak Portuguese. Nor any of our guests. Is that a problem?

Not at all! English is my second language – as you could probably tell by this whole website ahah.

How many photos do you deliver?

It really depends on a few variables; a 100 guest wedding will yield more photos than an elopement, for example. Typically, I deliver 50-100 images from engagement sessions, 200-300 from elopements and 600+ from bigger weddings.

When will the photos be ready?

For engagement/portrait sessions, you can expect to receive your final gallery – private and password protected – within 6 weeks from our shoot date. Weddings take a bit longer, typically 6-8 weeks after the wedding date.

Do you deliver color copies of the black and white images?

All black and white images are delivered as black and white only.

Do you shoot video?

I believe that video should be handled by professionals who share the same passion for capturing your wedding as I do in photography. Therefore, I specialize exclusively in photography. However, if you’re interested in having your wedding captured on video, I can recommend a few videographers who align with my style of photography.

Do you have backup gear?

I’m a bit meticulous about backups, so I always carry two cameras, and there’s an extra one in the bag just in case. These cameras record to separate memory cards, ensuring immediate backup. Additionally, I bring extra lenses and memory cards. After each wedding, before I leave, your images are backed up in five different locations. I’m proud to say that I haven’t lost a single image in over a decade of shooting weddings.

How do we book you?

A signed agreement and a 50% deposit is all it takes to reserve your date and have me document your wedding day.

Dogs or cats?

Dogs! We rescued what we think is a Border Collie mixed with a Brittany back in 2016 and she’s the best dog ever.
