Contact Miguel Ponte

I was born in Madeira Island, in Portugal, where I presently live and do the most of my work. I originaly graduated in psychology and i also had extensive training in landscape photography, which explains my focus on emotions and 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. 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?

5 years with over 120 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.
