// Wedding Photography FAQ's

8 most common wedding photography faq's

Do you only photograph weddings?

My core business is weddings, but I love photography in all its forms. When I can squeeze it in, I also photograph family, maternity and lifestyle shoots.

Do you work alone or with a second shooter?

Depending on the wedding, I usually work with a colleague. Having a second photographer is undeniably valuable.

How soon after the wedding will we receive the final work?

My turnaround time is three months (90 days) after the wedding.

Are all your photos edited?

Yes, all images are selected and edited by me, one by one.

Are you available to photograph outside of Portugal?

I sure am. I’ve already been blessed with the opportunity to do it and, to this day, I still can’t find the words to describe the whole experience.

Do any of your wedding packages include a printed album?

Of course. Photography just isn’t the same without something to touch and feel. For me, a printed album is what keeps the story alive.

Do you also shoot video?

As much as I’d love to, no, I don’t. But I’d be happy to suggest you a few videographers / teams who I work closely with and whose work I admire. 

Do you deliver RAW files?

No, the final work includes high resolution JPEG images, not raw files. Those are kept in archive for three years.

Extra notes

I don’t book two weddings for the same day, because I don’t work with extra teams. 

If you book your wedding with me, you’ll have me

My gear is composed of Canon camera and lenses.

It’s important for me to feel connected with the couples and the other way round.

I always make it my point to create a timeline of “moments of the day” with my couples.

My wedding reportage doesn’t have time limit, but we usually leave when we feel we have everything we need to tell the story of what happened.
