Hello! My name is Miguel Ponte and I am a multi-awarded portuguese destination wedding photographer based in Madeira Island, Portugal, that loves to travel the world to photograph love stories in a natural and candid style with the ocasional epic photo that I love.
Despite having studied psychology in college, my true passion has always been photography. Actually, those two facets of my life complement each other really well. To photograph people, you really have to understand them and be able to create a connection with them. The truth is I photographed my first wedding back in late 2014 and have never stopped since, having photographed over 300 weddings so far.
Besides several Fearless, ISPWP, This is Reportage and MyWed awards, I was awarded the Wedding Golden Camera for European Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2021 and 2023 by the Federation of European Professional Photographers.
I am also proud of being one of the ambassadors of KoyLab, a Portuguese company specializing in taylored albums, and Imagen-Ai, a lifesaver software for the busiest photographers, which saves years of life in editing using artificial intelligence.
However, despite the accolades, my biggest accomplishment in life is actually being the father of a little girl, which is my main source of inspiration.
