What our couples have to say about us
Zachary Polonus Zack + Melody West Cost Engagement
We had such a wonderful experience with Matt and Lena! They are such passionate and amiable people and totally incredible photographers. The proof is in the pictures and they were beyond our greatest expectation!
Shea Cole Shea + Felix Wedding in Monchique, Portugal
Everyone at our wedding commented on how great they were and the fact that they stayed until the very end capturing photos of our event. The photos are breathtaking, and people are still raving over them. They made us a slide show with music, and our family members keep playing it over and over at every event and saying how it was the most beautiful day. Matt & Lena captured it perfectly. Our album reads like a storybook. Thank you Matt & Lena!
Jessica Boland Jess + Bruce Algarve Engagement
Matt and Lena picked the most amazing beach for our shoot - somewhere we would have never discovered otherwise. We had so much fun and they made us feel really comfortable. It was overall an amazing experience and I would definitely love to work with them again if we are back in Portugal!
Jessie Hawthorn Jessie and Jonathan, Wedding in Luz, Portugal
Matt + Lena were so amazing to work with before, during and after the wedding! They paid so much attention to detail and really listened to ensure we were happy with our pictures. My husband and I came from Canada to get married in the Algarve so we didn't have the chance to meet with Matt + Lena in person ahead of time. I could tell by their pictures (of course they are stunning!!) but also their professionalism, prompt email responses and overall ease of communication that it was going to be a perfect fit! We were thrilled with our beautiful pictures and have received so many compliments that they look like pictures out of a magazine and that they truly capture our love and the story of our big day! They scouted out all the great spots for us ahead of time, ensuring the lighting would be just right, and I just adore their style of photography - so natural and genuine. Thank you again so much for giving us these pictures we will cherish forever!! xx
Adam Cummings Maria + Adam, Wedding in Sintra, Portugal
We got married at the Quinta in Cintra and my wife found Matt and Lena somehow on the internet. In all the craziness of organising a wedding, they were one of the few constants. Always organized, and very prepared (they even went on a trip from Alvor to Lisbon to check out the light in the area!). The wedding day was exceptional as they popped up around the place like Ninjas - you will never be able to see them both - making sure to get loads of genuine shots of everyone from dawn til dusk. Very highly recommended
Laur D Laura and Jonathon, Elopement in the Algarve
My husband and I traveled from Toronto to Portugal for our elopement and we were so fortunate that Matt and Lena were available on our wedding day. Throughout the booking process they were quick to respond to emails and set a Skype date to go over all of the logistics for our day, as well as to answer any questions we had - and we had a lot! Matt and Lena were very social and created a comfortable environment which was great since it was just the four of us during the six hour photo shoot. The photos turned out stunning and we have received compliments from everyone who has seen them. The photos really captured the nuance moments throughout the day in a very natural way and we will cherish them forever. Thank you Matt and Lena for being part of our day and for making the experience such a pleasure!
Natacha Manuel Natacha + Manuel, Beach Wedding Algarve
Matt and Lena were recommended to us by our wedding planner, Susana Santos. We were sold from the get-go (just take a look at their beautiful pictures!), and meeting them in person only reaffirmed that we had made the right decision. We were a bit iffy about doing an engagement shoot but it was a great idea in the end as we got to be very comfortable with Matt and Lena which made things far easier on the actual wedding day! The pictures are fabulous and a year after our wedding people are still commenting on just how beautiful the photos are. All in all, definitely a great choice and we heartily recommend them to anyone who is getting married! In fact, a couple who were at our wedding ended up booking them for their wedding! :)
Jelena Pinto Jelena + Joao, Wedding at Os Agostos, Portugal
Me and my husband got married last year in the south of Portugal and we still have family and friends raving about the beauty and elegance of our photographs. Matt and Lena take photographs that we will cherish forever. They are also a pleasure to work with. They make you feel comfortable and they get to know your style and personality. What first caught my eye about their work is the romantic feel and lighting of each photograph. Each photograph feels set in a natural and authentic manner. It's a staple of their professionalism and dedication to the work they do. Thank you Matt and Lena for your dedication and grace on our special day. :D
