WHEN THE THINGS ARE EASY
Really, we are in changing world. Bit by bit, the habits are changing the culture and the people move more and faster than ever before. Belong to a nationality start to have less importance and we, far more than other point in history, belong in fact to the world. So it is not strange anymore that a Portuguese will marry a Finnish and live in Holland. Despiste the costume that the wedding must be at the bride place, Maria and Duarte chose to celebrate their wedding in Portugal and in the beautiful Sintra.
On the other hand I could not be more happier because, once more, I did a wedding at the my most friendly church, Igreja de S. Pedro de Penaferrim in São Pedro de Sintra. It is my most photographed church and did gave me the most wonderful celebration photos since I am a wedding photographer. Despite to be a small church, it have that I do not know what that make my cameras and lens happy and with great need to photograph. At the end of the afternoon my return to Quinta dos Alfinetes at Sintra, did the entire joy allowing great light photos under the arbour, abounding in the garden, with the iconic Castelos dos Mouros and Palácio da Pena in the top of the Sintra mountain as background and at the other side the Varzea until the sea.
I do not know why but, in my work, I like the things that difficult doing them. I do not like things done easy but I must recognize that in scenarios like these, the church and the venue, I do not need to strengthen to much because it seems that everything it is just in the right place to pick up. And it was.
