When we planned our Portugal trip(that was exactly a year ago!) we said that we aren’t going to do any business shoots when we’re there! Never say never, ok? Because in a few weeks time we started talking that if we find a couple we just might do a shoot because we found a few gorgeous bucket list places and since we’re already there it won’t take so much of our time to do the shoot. We started searching for a couple and got lucky because Catarina and Sean planned their trip from the UK to Lisbon in that timeframe to finish their wedding planning and they were flexible with when we can shoot! So we decided for the gorgeous Praia da Ursa near Sintra.
We only saw a handful of sessions there and when we went location scouting the day before the session we realized why there are not more sessions from this place. Because it’s quite hard to get down to the beach. It’s actually like climbing down(and after the session up) a cliff and big rocks and it’s quite scary at some points. It took us around 30 minutes to get to the beach and we knew that we’ll have to do it the next day again! However we were rewarded with the most gorgeous sunset for the session and an almost empty beach so it was so worth it! Just look at that light – it’s amazing!
Catarina and Sean, thank you so much for taking the time do to this session, we loved photographing you!
