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 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.
I am also proud of being one of the ambassadors of KoyLab, a Portuguese company specialized in taylored photo albums. I have also been regularly invited to be a jury member at international photography competitions, such as case of XP Photographers, This is Reportage, MyWed Awards, Inspiration photographers, the Irish IPVAP or Fotografi-Cameramani and also to lecture in some major photography events in Portugal like Konnecting 2022 and Way 2022.
