What an amazing wedding I had the opportunity to photograph last saturday in Amares, in the Braga district, in the north of Portugal. Ever dreamt of getting married in a castle or a monastery? This is the place! Nowdays it’s an hotel, called Pousada Mosteiro de Amares. Look it up. It’s truly amazing and Laura and Connor’s family and friends, coming from the UK,  made it even better 🙂

This is what they had to say:

“Miguel, Where do we start.. Covid ensured we didn’t get to meet until the day before our wedding, and considering the lack of time we actually got to spend with you discussing the wedding, we couldn’t have asked for anything more from you. Miguel is quick with responding, kind worded and incredibly efficient when it comes to contacting him, which really does make all of the difference when planning and stressing about a wedding. He ensured we were at ease all day, always feeling comfortable when taking photos at our wedding. The variety of photos we received, from irreplaceable spontaneous moments to beautifully and articulated photos with our incredible scenery, they were all simply incredible. It seems impossible to choose a favourite, there are just so many to choose from. Miguels skill ensures you get the best of your location, the people and the moment. You simply couldn’t ask for anything more in a photographer. If anyone is reading this and is debating whether to book Miguel or not, don’t wait too long.. there’s a reason he’s won so many incredible awards! Jump at the chance and book him! Miguel, to sum up, we cannot tell you how grateful we are to have found you and that you were able to tell the story of our wedding (even with a covid date change – the stars were definitely aligned for us!!). We will truly treasure all of the photos for the rest of our lives together – Laura and Connor”
