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 ESAP 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.

As a Photojournalist I capture moments as they unfold, hands off, on candid and spontaneous pictures. You just need to enjoy the day!
Each wedding is unique and my passion is to capture every emotion in an authentic way. In that sense, I consider myself to be documentary photographer. Without interfering, I capture the moments as they take place, in natural and spontaneous photographs.
Things I Love,
My cat John John, Pepperoni Pizza, Swimm, Street Photography, typography and lot's of Rock music.
