Matt + Lena Photography » Destination Wedding Photographers / Matt + Lena / Algarve / Portugal / Europe



We are all about telling peoples stories fully and authentically from a unique artistic perspective. We are excited about creating imaginative, honest and thoughtful imagery, crafted to be timeless.  

We use natural light, simplicity, and instinct to capture the natural, and the spontaneous in a beautiful way. Our style is a combination of fine art and photojournalism.  A kind of Poetic Realism.

We want to capture the life and spirit of the day, all the feels, the people, the beauty, and the chaos!  It’s about photographing the warm smiles, the happy tears, the fleeting moments, and finding the perfect light as we step away to capture you, married and in love, for the first time.

We like to go off the beaten track to find unique and interesting places to photograph.  We crave the unusual and love photographs that are full of life.

Lets explore together and have an adventure!
