Hi, I’m luisa

your proposal/engagement & wedding photographer in london

My journey into wedding photography began when I was just 12 years old.

My whole family flew to the US from Portugal to witness a family union, and I not only was given THE film camera, as I also used up all the

disposable ones.

I truly fell in love with weddings on that day, and guess I can say this was not just my first wedding but also my first destination one too?

From first timers, to saying ‘I do’ a second time, my approach is always made with an open heart, kindness and reassurance.

My clients often recall their experience with me as one done with love, knowledge, reliability, a handful of suggestions and guidance, no judgment and a whole lot of fun.

And as someone who's been married and through a divorce, I have a special place in my heart for working with couples who ,like me, have never stopped believing, and are now taking a new leap in love.

There is something very special, a specific kind of connection you make with a fellow woman divorcee, and I will always cherish the places our meetings go to whenever Starlings meet.

Speaking of special connections, I am an avid supporter of the LGBTQIA+ community, and anyone and everyone from any cultural background and race is welcome to contact me to be there for their union.

More than just a proposal and destination photographer, my couples know that I'm there to lend support every step of the way.

From proposal to dance floor, I am a friend.

I represent a calm presence to the camera shy, a reassuring hand to the big planners, and another set of eyes to those who live life at a high speed.

I ensure that every moment is captured with grace and that the final result is timeless and special.

Besides being fluent in English, my travels across the world added fluent Spanish and Italian to my repertoire, and earned me the title of 'photographer globetrotter' by VOGUE Portugal in 2019.

I have been lucky to have made new friends in every proposal, engagement and wedding I’ve ever been a part of, and these are connections I’ll cherish forever.
