Alfama Graça engagement photo walk by wedding photographer Nicole Sánchez.

This is the day before wedding of Min and Luis. They wrote me saying they wanted to have some lisbon elements in their pictures. So, their request was for traditional tiles, old streets and a city view. Therefore, we strolled from Alfama do Graça, drinking ginjinha on the way.

Min from Korea and Luis from Portugal, came to Lisbon to have their wedding celebration with the Portuguese family. Previously, the couple had already done a traditional Korean ceremony in Min home town, and a celebration with friends back in london, where they live.

Alfama is one of the oldest neighbourhoods surrounding the hills of the Castle. The very narrow streets provide an amazing light at certain hours of the day. Graça miradouro, can show the whole river front up to the bridge. Consequently it became a very popular neighbourhood for couple’s photo walks.


In addition to this photoshoot, I was also their wedding photographer. A few days later, Min and Luis wedded in Cascais, in a very symbolic and intimate ceremony, full of colour, overviewing the atlantic ocean in Cascais. Elegance could be the single word to describe their wedding day.

Above all, it is of crucial importance to meet your photographer before hand. Schedule a short photo walk, get to know his/her way of work, and become comfortable with the ideia of having a camera around you. Further reading on this can be found here.
