My name is Miguel Ponte and I am wedding photographer from Madeira Island, in Portugal. I am the proud father of a little girl which is one of my greatests achievements and the source of my inspiration.
Despite having studied psychology, my true passion has always been photography. Actually, those two facets of my life compliment each other so well…to photograph people, you have to understand them.
Besides several Fearless, ISPWP, This is Reportage, XP Photographers, Prowed and MyWed or awards, I also received the Golden Camera for European Photographer of the Year 2021 in the wedding category, a prize awarded by a panel of 30 judges from the European Federation of Professional Photographers and I was runner up in the World’s Top 25 Wedding Photographers of the Year 2021.
I am also proud of being one of the ambassadors of KoyLab, a Portuguese company specialized in printing and manufacturing taylored photo albums. I have also been regularly invited to be a jury member in national and international photography competitions, such as case of XP Photographers, This is Reportage, MyWed Awards, Irish Professional Photographers and Videographers Association or Fotografi-Cameramani.
