Isabel & Brendan - Intimate Wedding In Alentejo - Pousada Castelo de Alvito
 

I’m still blogging beautiful days from 3 years ago. I just can’t help but visit the client galleries sometimes and gather all the kind of nostalgia I can. It makes me feel so grateful for this journey, and it makes me deliver myself more and more to every new day that I am able to create something new. And it’s impactful the kind of supreme detail we can remember things about, even feelings we used to have, just by looking at a moment in a photograph. Even to myself this is such an intense experience - to relive over and over again the beauty of a day so very special and so very unique. I am always so grateful to be able to do this. To give myself fully to the ability of putting little bits of what I see, the way I see them, and what I believe in on a little composition that can come to mean so much to someone. And it’s the lost details I love most rather than the most expected ones. Sometimes you see something in a way nobody does and it’s there that lies your heart.

 
Souls wild at heart // A Wedding in Serra Da Estrela Natural Park
 

A kind of wilderness that words can not unwire, uncover, explain. I am still trying to comprehend the new things that were born on this day, in my life. Sometimes I can not truly word how much of what I do changes me. This day was 3 years ago, and I recall it all so vividly. I love Serra da Estrela with an unexplainable fire, always did. But to shoot a day like this, a love like this, emotions shining so brightly as they did right in the heart of it; when the day melts and you melt away with it - seemingly blending into one. I felt as if I was watching the most beautiful spectacle in the world. As if it was all meant to be that I was there. So that I could love what I do so much more fiercely. That I could understand that I might be worth a bit more to people than I at first understood. That my art matters, that it is possible to freeze so much more than just a moment in what I end up delivering. And that these people changed my life so much. Enriched it. Made it so much more worthy. And so much more golden. I still have no words to give and to try and explain the kind of honor and gratitude I still feel for all that unfolded on this day, under that big “carvalha”, where they shouted into the skies there was no other way other than this way; together always as one big family that could love no more than how they already did.

And as per usual this is going to be long. It deserves so.




 
My love is a cloud burning brightly in the sky
