Contact Miguel Ponte

I was born in Madeira Island, in Portugal, where I presently live and do the most of my work but I love travelling and do weddings all over. I originaly graduated in psychology and i also had extensive training in landscape photography, which explains my focus on emotion, but also natural scenaries, which are the two pilares for my style of photography.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in Madeira Island, but i also serve other regions of Portugal like Porto Santo island, the Azores, the Algarve, Lisbon, Sintra, Oporto, Alentejo or Braga and also outside Portugal. I don't charge travelling fees in Portugal.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

7 years with over 300 weddings so far.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is probably a mix between documentary style photography with some directing in the sense that I always try my best to make people feel at ease and comfortable while I am photographing them, never asking for poses or any other artificial moments.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

The lowest price is 1850 euros for the photo coverage and digital files.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I use skype, teams or zoom.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Psychology degree, Postgrad in human resources management and advance formation in landscape photography.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I love travelling, playing chess, dancing and astronomy...which is probably a weird combination :D 
I also have a little daughter which is the center of my world.
