My name is Luis Efigénio and I’m a Destination Wedding Photographer based in Portugal.
I’ve started my career as a photojornalist in 2003, in the Portuguese Newspaper “Público”.
My first wedding was in 2009, so I’ve been documenting engagements and weddings all over Europe for a decade now. I love to travel and I’m passionate about learning from other travelers.
Being a Destination Wedding Photographer helped me perceive and portray people, moments & relationships. If you feel that I might be a good fit as your wedding photographer…

THIS IS HOW I DEFINE MY STYLE
I WON'T TELL YOU WHAT TO DO
Without interfering I capture the moments as they unfold, in natural and spontaneous photographs. You just have to worry about enjoying the day.
I ALWAYS TAKE A DIFFERENT VIEW
I’m not interested in the ordinary, I always look beyond the obvious. I like alternative and unconventional weddings and I want my work to reflect that.
I TRY TO BE INVISIBLE
If you don’t notice me, It allows me to get closer. That way, I can capture your true personality. I can be there for those raw and really meaningful moments.
I'M CURIOUS LIKE A KITTEN
That’s the first trait of a photojournalist. I’m always searching for a new story to tell. Always on my toes waiting for the decisive moment.
I OFTEN GET EMOTIONAL
I can’t help getting involved, becoming a part of the day, a part of the story. In the end, I almost feel like I’m family.
How soon should we contact you and book the service?
As soon as possible. Some dates are booked a year ahead. To secure a date we require that you sign the contract and pay a booking fee.
What are the payment terms?
20 percent will be paid when you book the date and sign the contract, 60 percent up to one month before the wedding day, and the final 20 percent when I deliver the online gallery. The amount paid when the date is booked is not refundable if the wedding is cancelled and is not reusable if the date is changed.
Do you work in any location?
Yes, we work throughout Portugal and also Internationally. All the travel expenses are included in our collections. Feel free to ask for our pricelist filling the form above.
