Hi 🙂

My name is Miguel Ponte and I was born in 1979, in Madeira Island, Portugal, a little portuguese island that lies 500 km (310 miles) off the coast of Africa, knowned by the alias pearl of the Atlantic, but also the island of eternal spring or even the garden island of the Atlantic.

I am the proud father of a little girl that showed me what unconditional love is all about and rocks my world every day and I have always considered myself as a family oriented guy with a taste for travel, a good talk, good food and coffee.

I majored in psychology and human resources management, but my true passion is in fact photography and capturing those little moments that reveal real emotions, with no scripts or any forced poses, accompanying the unfolding of events in the most genuine way possible.

My presence at weddings is usually discrete, interacting with the bride and groom and their guests in the softest and warm way so that they don’t feel pressured, feeling free to share their special day with me and give me the enormous honor of capturing their memories.
