Sara and Rodrigo | Engagement Photoshoot in Lisbon and Torres Vedras
Sara is a 3rd degree cousin and I still remember when she was just a little baby girl (gosh, this really makes me feel old). It’s hard to believe that this beautiful green-eyed girl is getting married soon!
Sara and Rodrigo are Portuguese, but they both live in New Jersey for several years now. They met in the States, on Saint Anthony’s day. In Portuguese folklore, Saint Anthony is famous for being a “holy matchmaker” and he may have played his tricks on Sara and Rodrigo on that June day a few years ago 🙂
We were honoured when Sara contacted us for her engagement photoshoot. We shot them in Lisbon in the morning, but in the evening we moved to the Torres Vedras area, which is where Sara is originally from (I’m from there too, by the way).
With Lisbon’s historical centre in morning light, the windmills in the afternoon and a sunset on the beach, there were so many great backdrops to shoot Sara and Rodrigo against. It sure was a long day – but worth every minute! We’re now looking forward to their big day.
