This romantic engagement session in Lisbon was photographed a couple of years ago, and we never got to share the images on our journal. Until today!!
Our couple lives in the US, however they chose Portugal for their destination wedding. And their wedding planner, The Wedding Co, contacted us to shoot their engagement. Since Lisbon is well known for it’s outstanding light, we took advantage of that, while capturing the couple.
We met at Praça do Comércio, a magnificent plaza in the center of the city and one of it’s highlights.
Praça do Comércio is surrounded on three sides by yellow Pombaline styled buildings. But the southern side is facing out over the Tejo Estuary, where we finished this romantic engagement session in Lisbon.
This plaza is a hive of activity with locals rushing for buses and trams, tourists and shoppers browsing the market stalls. And of course, is brimming with all the stores at Rua Augusta.
We walked by the most impressive Arco da Rua Augusta that spans the entrance of Praça do Comércio with Rua Augusta, and snap a few images.
Once the sun was setting, Lacy, our bride, changed to a second look and we all went closer to the river for a spectacular sunset at Rio Tejo, overlooking Ponte 25 de Abril.
Their laughs were contagious and their happiness was quite palpable, as you can see on every single frame.
