An afternoon photographing at Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra


The pregnant woman sitting while her husband holds her from behind, in the session at Quinta da Regaleira, with the wedding photographer in Sintra.

Sintra has always been an idyllic place for any wedding photographer. Streets, small roads, hills, and forests always give us the best photographic subjects, and engaging scenarios and only the lack of imagination can be the limit. Of the several gardens, that Sintra owns with great pride, the Regaleira garden is, for sure, the most intense.

From the upbringing to the fruition of the ground. It is the kind of space that we visit not only because of the beauty but, especially, of the push of the imagination because we know, that below all of the beautiful trees and on the precisely designed walkways, in the past, all king of parties, rituals, and gathering charged with mystic ideas from what can be our life and all the connections that we do not understand well.

Because of this, it is natural that a wedding photographer, from time to time,  will come back with a bride and groom and involve them in the dozens of ways that this garden aloud. It was like that with Micaela and Eduardo, from the other side of the Atlantic, cognizant of all mysteries of the garden and, because of that,  they wished for a session with photographic cameras and lenses and all.

Here are the photos, some of them, stolen between branches and foliage of the great old trees, the witness of the old stories that charge our imagination in the ground roads specially designed to do that in our mind, the great well, with long stairs driving us to the deep of our existence. Well, at least, we imagine that even if we do not take it seriously.

To the wedding photographer, only the photos matter. And here they are.
