Luis Efigenio Self Portrait


On April 21st 1982, I was born in Matosinhos, Porto, Portugal.


At the age of 7, I did my first photo reportage, during the annual primary school travel, to Dunas de São Jacinto, in Aveiro, Portugal. I brought a camera that my father gave me to document the day. This was also when I met Isabel, now my lovely wife.


At the age of 16, I was already an avid amateur photographer. I made a travel to São Tomé, an African Island. When I saw these photos after development, I made the decision to become a professional photographer.


I went to Escola Superior Artística do Porto to graduate in Photography, Arts and Communication.


I made an internship on a Portuguese National Newspaper “Público” and started my career as a photojournalist.


I shot my fisrt wedding and never stop shooting weddings since.


Exactly 10 Years of start dating Isabel, and after shooting many weddings toghether, we got married ourselves on Novermber 5th.

Kind Words

We hired Luis for our wedding day. We found him after seeing his work for other weddings published through articles and blogs and knew that his style would suit us. We contacted him, and found him very personable and knowledgeable, and he clearly has a passion for the subject, which reassured us that we made the right choice. Communication with Luis was very easy, and on the day, he and his assistant were professional, friendly and captured all the key moments - and as importantly, all the moments in between - beautifully, but without always knowing he was there. We are delighted with the results, and would highly recommend Luis.

Luis was great from start to finish! We picked him because we wanted lots of candid photos and great dance floor shots. We were definitely not disappointed! He has super sneaky photography skills which are great for capturing emotional moments. You’ll have no idea he’s there, but somehow he’s everywhere.

Luis did a fantastic job with my very very hot wedding in the Algarve. He was always communicating before and after the big day and the product turned out great! Our wedding ran very late and he was more than accommodating and stayed till the wee hours of the morning. would highly recommend him to capture any important moment in life.
