Weronika & Mateusz opted for post wedding session in Portugal. They chose Cabo da Roca & Praia da Ursa as a location for our shooting. Simply breathtaking landscape at the very edge of Europe.
Thank you Portugal for being so amaizingly beautiful. Could a photographer ask for more?
We planned the trip in advance to make sure we choose the best timing. I normally start 2 hours sessions around 1,5h before the sunset – this way I can have diverse looks in my pictures due to the rapid change of light. If it’s not too cloudy I can catch golden hour, sunset and dusk.
We started shooting at Cabo da Roca. Oh my, it really is a powerful place. From the top of the cliffs you can feel the strength of the ocean, the weight of water, the contrast of colours.
At first the sun was still quite high but it didn’t take long to change position. In comparison with northern Europe the sun in Portugal goes down really quickly. Weronika & Mateusz fell in love with the spot and I was so happy to be there with them. Such a lovely, charming & natural couple. After taking loads of pictures at the Cape we got back into the car and drove just 5 minutes to get to our second location and see Praia da Ursa from the neighbouring hills.
Serra de Sintra and its spectacular coast are heading West which makes them a dream scenery for perfect sunset shows. We were lucky to watch the most incredible wave of red light slowly moving down the hill. Such spectacles of nature enhance the connection between people. The force of the elements and the power of love just fit together perfectly.
Around the sunset time the wind got super chilly but Weronika & Mateusz stayed brave 🙂 I’m so glad they did, I think it was worth it!
