Contact Ana Luísa Pinto







At Luminous Photography, we love to capture your special moments with care, with joy and with a tad of sophistication. We like to laugh and cry with you. We like to sit down for coffee and to share stories and silly jokes - we have a soft spot for dad jokes, if you know any! We like to be present with our souls awake and with open hearts, and to help preserve the memories of what makes you truly happy!

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

We're located in Porto, a gorgeous city in the north of Portugal, but we're willing to travel anywhere you want us to be! We have set travel fees for Portugal, and if you want to bring us anywhere else, we'll work out a travel budget!

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

At Luminous, we like to mix fine-art with photojournalism. We want your day to be light and fun, and to represent it in its most magical way. We love couples that are adventurous and fun, and we're an LGBTQI*-friendly brand!

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

We typically use Skype if our couples are from outside of Porto, and if they're in town, we'll invite them over for coffee at our family's patisserie!

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

I live in Porto with my girlfriend Melanie and our cat, Alice. I'm part of a big family and I absolutely love it! I'm talkative and enthusiastic, and I'll go anywhere for a good plate of food — which I suspect is a very Portuguese thing to say. I value empathy and connection to my clients; I want to be able to dedicate myself fully to the couples who choose me to register their special day, so I do a very limited amount of weddings per year.

Working with the Luminous team was great. The team was great and spoke English, German and, of course, Portuguese. As an American marrying a German in Portugal, this really helped ensure everything ran smoothly.
My husband and I had several conversations with Anna before the big day discussing everything from our ‘must have’ shots, to the wedding program and timing, to potential locations where we could shoot. Anna is very knowledgeable about the region and had many good suggestions for where we could capture the natural beauty of the coast as well as some of the famous blue and white tiles Read More in the background of our shoot. In spite of some challenging weather, we got our shoot done and were very happy with the results. Anna and team also captured lots of candid photos of our guests and the bridal party throughout the evening. We liked the antique feel / finish of the photos as a final product and were proud to be able to share them with our guests and family as part of the great memories of our wonderful day. Thank you Luminous team!
