A wedding at Quinta das Riscas in Montijo, Portugal

The bride carries the bride on her back on a country path.

The Quinta das Riscas is an oasis designed at the beginning of the Alentejo, near Montijo, and is the place chosen by Cátia and Luís to celebrate their wedding.

Walking the road in the direction of Pegões to the Quinta is by itself a delight for the eyes of the wedding photographer. The Alentejo began there and is going to prolong through the road under the shadow of the round holm oaks that shade as giant sun hats that protect and inspire. The Quinta das Riscas comes from nothing, lined with vines, still green but already with orange shapes, immediately transporting the thought of the photographer to the photos that will be made more in the afternoon with the bride and groom. And so it was. The orange light has been fulfilled. I did what a wedding photographer must do: enjoy it.

The day was with autumnal blue sky with a mild temperature, ideal for that, in front of the magnificent palm trees where the yes would come luminous as the sun. Any wedding photographer, in this scenario, feels inspired to produce the best that illustrates so a magnificent day.

Once again it was a privilege to have been there. The photos were released just like the guests and the bride and groom felt.
