Healthy and cookalicious treats for our furry friendsūüźĺ Tested on humans who love dogs‚̧

Photographed at the Bella Vista Boutique Farm in Sintra, Portugal.

Over two days we photographed Aline baking all kinds of different doggy treats, shopping with Cooka at a local market, hanging out at the beach and at home with her husband Alex and all their lovely dogs. Even taking her goat for a walk around the Farm – just a typical day at the Bella Vista!

It was a total blast!

Photographing Aline and Alex with their Weimaraner puppies was awesome! They are truly madly in love with their dogs and care deeply about their health and well being. Cooka’s Cookies is Aline and Alex’s passion project that’s been in the making for years. They have based themselves in Portugal, but hope to take their brand worldwide – to provide healthy and delicious food to all dogs, everywhere.

Cooka’s Cookies: “We are passionate about baking wholesome, healthy, and 100% natural cookies for dogs. This is what we bake in our home kitchen – literally!

We harvest and use the best ingredients from local farms. We work with honest and caring fishmongers and butchers from surrounding villages to source the best.

Cookies are made in small batches to be as fresh as possible and always tested on humans – …one of them my husband… who actually adores them!” – Aline

Getting to know Aline and Alex was a “treat”. ¬†For the shoot we stayed at their ‘in-the-making’ Bella Vista Boutique Farm in Sintra, Portugal. ¬†They approached us about shooting their brand campaign in March of this year. ¬†It was a proposal to capture them and their life on the farm with their 3 Weimaraner and 10 puppies! ¬†It was a wonder we got any work done as they were so cute to play with!

We have known Natacha and Manuel for ages, since we first met them in 2013 in Faro for their engagement session. We clicked instantly and we loved their quirkiness and their adventurous spirit. We had the best time documenting Natacha + Manuel’s wedding the following year, which was amazingly beautiful. We have kept in touch ever since and when Natacha e mailed us that she wanted to surprise Manuel with an anniversary shoot we were so ecstatic to see them again! We met up on Monte Clerigo Beach near Aljezur on Algarve’s west coast. We spent the afternoon catching up on each others lives and recent adventures. A couple of glasses of wine later we were ready to stroll around Monte Clerigo and take some fun photographs.

Justyna and Scott tied the knot this summer at Quinta De Sant’Ana, a beautiful working vineyard in Portugal’s countryside. ¬†Their intimate ceremony was held by the orange grove beside the rows of vines rising up into the hills. ¬†The 2 lovebirds fell head over heels in love with Portugal the first time they visited from the UK. ¬†Justyna is originally from Poland, so besides the wonderful wine there was lots of Polish vodka getting this party started!

“We both wanted to get married abroad. We liked the idea of having our friends and family in one place for a few days and enjoying the sunshine together. We started looking at European countries and different wedding photo blogs. ¬†We fell in love with a photo story on your blog – it was Emma and Gerry who got married at Quinta de Sant‚ÄôAna. We then contacted the venue and it turned out to be everything that we were looking for.” – Justyna

Graeme and Sarah were married in Spring, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Os Agostos, Portugal.  They dined alfresco style in the gardens and strolled with us through the sun soaked orange orchard and pebble paths of the grounds.

It was a beautiful day filled with lots of love and laughs …
