Ruben & Katya are one of those couples you just fall in love with. Beautiful inside out, full of love, passion, friendly feelings. I already knew Ruben before as he is a brother of my good friend. It was amazing to meet Katya and see these two get along so well. They met in Belgium, where they both live. Katya is originally from Russia and Ruben from Lisbon. They opted for Wedding in Portugal and asked me to photograph their Big Day. I couldn’t be happier as I immediately felt it would just be beautiful. They chose Estufa Real as their venue. The place is honestly stunning, you couldn’t ask for more. It’s basically a botanical garden with a view over the Tagus river. When we discussed all the details before the Day I was already sure these guys had everything planned perfectly. The guests were from around the world, and this meant a multicultural party and traditions from Russia, Portugal and Goa – the origin of Ruben’s parents. Amazing. The religious ceremony took place in Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. Such an emblematic place for the promise of eternal love. Go ahead feel the spirit of that day. I hope these photographs will bring you a bit of incredible energy that Katya, Ruben and their family and friends created on that sunny, September day.
