Raquel + Rik, Engagement Session on Gale Beach

.   .   .   .   .

We had so much fun photographing Rik and Raquel for their engagement session.  The were so sweet, always laughing and dancing, they made our job supper easy!  In fact I really can’t wait to see the first dance at this wedding!

 We met up for the shoot on Gale beach just west of Albufeira. It took us three times of going around the block to find parking and once we got to the beach it was completely jam-packed with umbrellas, towels and people, the tourist season has begun and the days of Gale beach being a sleepy little surf hang out was gone!

 Luckily Gale beach stretches for miles and there is a little obscured dirt pathway that leads to a number of coves just a little walk west with small secluded beaches, this was our piece of photography heaven.

 Rik and Raquel live in Lisbon and are tying the knot in Tavira this September.  We are so excited to shoot their beautiful outdoor wedding. A ceremony in a garden, followed by a small train ride to the beach for a bit of sand, sea and sun wedding celebration with a restaurant reception to follow.  It sounds amazing!
