Wedding in the hillside of Sintra

FAMILY TIES by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN SINTRA

The bride and groom, holding hands, leave the ceremony under flower petals at Morada do Sol in Malveira, captured by the wedding photographer in Sintra.

Several days before the Summer arrived it was when Teresa and Richard decided to get married at Morada do Sol, Malveira on the hillside of Sintra. I was chosen to photograph their wedding day. When I reach the place I knew that this was more a celebration of a lifetime together than a usual wedding ceremony, as it is usual at the weddings I photograph.

However, the couple already had a life together, family, and years that teach them, with certitude, that they belonged to each other. On the other hand, everybody there was family and very close friends, which turn the environment more intimate and friendly to the wedding photographer and what he loves to do. Photographing people and the ties that join them.

I may say that I left very satisfied and, after, knowing that the couple was delighted with the photos and the people who saw them. To any professional, with pride of that, that is the best pay we can have. Here, are some of the photos, to show you how it was.
