Love session in Alentejo

 

Alentejo is one of our favorite places in Portugal to shoot weddings and sessions, and for a good reason. Light there is like a photographer's dream come true: golden, crisp, eternal-sunset-all-day kind of light. Never too harsh and never too low. It's never too cold or too wet (or maybe we've just been lucky) which is a good change for us, who live in Porto and can count on fog almost all year-round. We are always talking about how Portugal can be so diverse being such a small country, but it's true: that one can go from the we, dark green, romantic mountainscapes of the Douro Valley to the gold, dry, bright and sunny Alentejo with just 3 hours of driving is nothing short of amazing.
