Destination Wedding | Ludivine & Fernando – Pedro Filipe Fotografia

Olá. Já a prepararem-se para o fim de semana que se aproxima?

Todos os casamentos nos marcam e têm espaço na nossa memória, mas confesso-vos que este tem um lugar muito especial no nosso coração. O amor da Ludivine e do Fernando era demasiado forte e evidente para passar despercebido. Confesso-vos que foi um dos casamentos onde me emocionei mais vezes. Onde troquei mais olhares de cumplicidades com a Cátia.

Obrigado Fernando e Ludivine por serem o casal incrível que são. Daqui por uns dias já nos voltamos a encontrar na Suiça.

Wedding Day | Daniela + Vítor @Quinta d’Azenha | Pedro Filipe Fotografia

Como vai essa semana? Ainda a meio, não é?

Hoje quero mostrar-vos o casamento da Daniela e do Vítor. É impossível não ficar contagiado com a felicidade deles.

Lembro-me perfeitamente da ansiedade que ambos estavam. Mas uma ansiedade boa… Uma vontade enorme de quererem casar e partilhar essa felicidade com tantos e bons amigos que marcaram presença neste dia tão especial e inesquecível.

Espero que gostem e que esta luz e calor aqueça um bocadinho estes dias tão frios.

How are you doing this week?

Today I want to show you the wedding of Daniela and Vítor. It is impossible not to get touched with their happiness.

I remember perfectly how anxious they both were. But a good anxiety… They had a huge desire to marry and share their happiness with so many good friends that have been present on this special and unforgettable day.

I hope you enjoy this pictures and that this light and heat will warm up a little these days so cold.

Destination Wedding | Gabi + Joe @Quinta da Eira

Quando a Gabi e o Joe nos contaram das ideias que tinham para celebrar o casamento ficamos com a certeza que ia ser diferente e especial. E podemos garantir uma coisa. Superou as nossas expectativas.

Foi um casamento emotivo. Tudo fluiu com uma naturalidade fantástica. Com uma decoração que parece simples, mas com uma complexidade enorme.

A Gabi é economista e natural do Brasil e o Joe é um matemático lusodescente. A cerimónia civil teve lugar na Quinta da Eira, que recomendamos vivamente.

Deixo-vos com algumas das fotografias que documentaram o amor da Gabi e do Joe.

When Gabi and Joe told us about the ideas they had to celebrate their wedding, we knew for sure that it was going to be different and special. And we can guarantee one thing. It exceeded our expectations.

It was an emotional wedding. Everything flowed with a fantastic naturalness. With a decoration that looks simple but with a huge complexity.

Gabi is an economist and native of Brazil and Joe is a lusodescente mathematician. The civil ceremony took place in Quinta da Eira, which we highly recommend.

I leave you with some of the pictures of this amazing Gabi and Joe’s Destination Wedding.

Wedding | Cláudia + Hugo @Quinta de Alvre

Fotografar um casamento é sempre uma responsabilidade muito grande. Mas adoramos tanto o que fazemos, que mesmo estando a trabalhar, sentimos que também somos parte do casamento. Deixamos muito de nós, mas também chegamos a casa com o coração mais preenchido. Quando o casamento é de amigos, os sentimentos são dados e recebidos com mais intensidade. Já escrevi um pouco do casamento da Cláudia e do Hugo neste post.

Foi um casamento onde ri, chorei e dancei até ser o último a sair da Quinta de Alvre, mas ao rever as imagens sinto uma felicidade tão grande que vai para além das palavras.

Mais imagens deste e outros trabalhos: www.pedrofilipe.pt

Photographing a wedding is always a very big responsibility. But we love so much what we do, that despite we are working, we feel that we are also part of the wedding. We give a lot, but we also receive a lot that warms our hearts. When the marriage is from friends, the feelings are given and received with more intensity. I already wrote a little of the marriage of Claudia and Hugo in this post.

It was a wedding where I laughed, cried and danced until I was the last to leave the Quinta de Alvre, but when I reviewed the images, I felt such happiness that it went beyond any words.

Mind the Gap!

Há uma frase de Samuel Johnson que traduz com muito rigor aquilo que eu sinto sobre Londres: “Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”

Londres é uma cidade fantástica que já tive a oportunidade de a visitar umas 3 vezes. Claro que ajuda muito à minha carteira o facto de não ter de procurar alojamento. Muito obrigado Ricardo Pedrosa por me teres recebido mais uma vez. Nesta 3ª viagem a Londres, fui acompanhado do Belmiro. Claro que fomos visitar os pontos emblemáticos de Londres, como a Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster, Big Ben, Tate Modern, Hyde Park, entre outros. Ainda tivemos tempo de fazer uma visita ao emblemático e bonito Windsor Castle. Mas além de termos feito um bocadinho de turismo, tentei fazer um bocadinho mais de fotografia de rua. É tão bom andar por Londres só a viver e a respirar a dinâmica de uma cidade super moderna e desenvolvida, onde a história e o passado se misturam tão bem.

Visitem Londres. É caro, é verdade, mas vale a pena. Viajar é a única coisa que compramos e no final ficamos mais ricos.

E claro, bebam uma PINT.

There is a sentence from Samuel Johnson that translates very closely what I feel about London: “Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford.”

London is a fantastic city that I have had the opportunity to visit 3 times. Of course my wallet thanks me to not have to look for accommodation. Thank you very much Ricardo Pedrosa for having received me one more time. On this 3rd trip to London, I went with Belmiro. Of course we went to visit the emblematic points of London, such as Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster, Big Ben, Tate Modern, Hyde Park, among others. We still had time to visit the iconic and beautiful Windsor Castle. But besides having done a bit of tourism, I tried to do a little more street photography. It is so good to walk through London just to live and breathe the dynamics of a super modern and developed city, where history and the past blend so well.
Visit London. It’s expensive, it’s true, but it’s worth it. Traveling is the only thing we buy and in the end we get richer.

And of course, drink a PINT.

Iceland | A land like no other

Iceland is the most unique and exciting place on the planet that I know. It is a place like no other. This article is designed to help maximize your trip to this incredible place.

This itinerary provides you a 7 day road trip plan. We saw and read a lot of blogs and websites to prepare our trip, but we end following almost exactly the trip and blog of Alex Cornell. That’s why this blog post is almost identical to Alex Cornell. Not to copy, but because we followed his trip and tips.

All photos presented in this post is from my own.

Our plan

plano

This was our plan. We can have it here.

Trust me, you do not go to Iceland to see Reykjavik (despite being a really nice city) or to sit on a tourbus.

You go to Iceland to have an unique experience of life and see our planet like a raw thing.

You will see incredible and unforgettable landscapes. You will see waterfalls like you never imagined. As the name implies, Iceland, will see ice and fire. We will see glaciers, geothermal energy, natural SPA, Northern lights. The beauty of Iceland is unique and I assure you that it will remain in your memory forever.

The Ring Road

pedrofilipefotografia_0300 pedrofilipefotografia_0324 pedrofilipefotografia_0345

If you go to Iceland, you must do the Ring Road. It is designed perfectly for a road trip. Many people that goes to Iceland stays in the south (that have beautiful things), but you should get the enough time to do the all Ring Road. In the north, you have the most incredible landscapes and for use, the north was very special, because we saw the Northern lights. Believe me, it was magical!

We drove the Ring Road counter-clockwise. But there a lot of people that does the opposite.

When To Go

Remember that Iceland is almost on the Arctic Pole, so in the winter you will have a big part of the day dark and in the summer we will have sun like forever. We went in the end of August, so we had good weather (only 1 day with rain) and not to crowdy. Iceland is turning in a very popular destination for photographers and adventures, so in this time of the year you will have more people and traffic, but it is ok.

The temperature was cold, but ok. Average of 10ºC.

What To Bring

Map/GPS

You do not want to rely on GPS in Iceland. A hard copy map is recommended. We also had with us our military GPS used on our Geocaching times. This is crucial, especially if you go to drive on a F Road.

Clothes and Gear

Clothes are a very personal decision, but at least bring a good pair of boots because you have to hike in Iceland and a good coat to those times that the wind is really cold.

Money

All you need in Iceland is your credit card. Every gas station, restaurant, shop, and accepts cards. Even the most isolated spots sometimes prefer cards. It’s possible to spend your entire trip in Iceland without handling money.

Where To Stay

There are plenty of accommodation options in Iceland around the entire Ring Road, but you need to book ahead, especially if you go on the crowed season (May and June).

We stayed always at a Hotel or a B&B. Yes, it is a lot more expensive, but you have also other commodities. We can consider also camping or camping in a RV (we saw a lot of people doing this way) for a unique experience… Whatever be your choice, you will not regret.

Driving in Iceland

To get around Iceland, you need to get a car. If you are short on money, a regular car is ok, but if you want to have a more Icelandic experience, you need to get a 4WD. You will have more space, comfort and you will be able to explore some scenarios that it is only possible to visit with a 4WD (F roads). But please be careful. With rain, some gravel streets are dangerous and you need to have special care.

Whatever rental company you choose, please don’t forget to add the gravel insurance. You may think that is unnecessary, but once you start driving in Iceland you will see why am I saying this.

We rented our car in Lagoon Car Rental. To be honest, I don’t think that I have enough words to thank them. All guys in the company were simply amazing. They picked us up at 2am at the airport. Right… 2 Am. In 5 minutes we were at the central office. They gave us coffee, tea and milk.

The cars are like new and recent. We rented a 4WD and Lagoon Car Rental gave us a Kia Sportage. Great car. We drove all around Iceland, including some F Road and we had 0 problems.

If you go to Iceland, don’t search rental companies. Our top choice is definitely, Lagoon Car Rental!

Food in Iceland

The food in Iceland is amazing. Truly, very good. So why do you often hear people lament how bad it is and that it’s “all about hot dogs”. This is true if you restrict your food sourcing to gas stations. If you branch out and try local restaurants, cafes and hotel eateries, then it’s very good. Gas stations are cheaper. We choose to lunch something while driving and having a relaxed dinner.

Day 1: Keflavík→Vestmannaeyjar

trip-to-iceland

Like I said before, we arrived at KEF at 2 am. I get a little nap and started driving. We were so anxious. You will eventually end up in Vik for the night, but we prefer to know Vestmannaeyjar Islands. We’ve taken the ferry and had our first night there. The drive from KEF is only about 3 hours, but there are some terrific stops along the way. It’s a great route to get acclimated to Iceland and the pace of things.

Stay the night: Hotel Vestmannaeyjar

Dinner: 900 Grillhús

Sights:

The drive along the southern coast is one of my absolute favorites. Some of Iceland’s most iconic sights are just off the Ring Road. There is also great opportunity for serious adventures.

  • Kerid Crater Lake – Take a walk around the crater and admire the contrast between the red rocks and the bright blue water, caused by minerals from the soil.
  • Seljalandsfoss – A stunning 60 metres high waterfall. And the best part is, you can go behind it. Definitely worth a visit for the magnificent scenery.
  • Seljavallalaug – This charming swimming pool is one of the oldest in Iceland! Soak yourself into warm termal water and enjoy.
  • Skógafoss – Come to see one of the biggest waterfalls in the country! A legend says that it hides a treasure. On sunny days, a rainbow can be seen.
  • Solheimasandur Plane Wreck – A plane crashed on Sólheimasandur beach on Sunday, Nov 24, 1973 and its remains can be still found here today. It became very popular with photographers, like us.
  • Dyrhólaey – This small peninsula with cliffs is a protected area. It’s home to many sea birds, including puffins, gulls and fulmars. Wonderful views.
  • Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach – This unique beach with black sand is a must if you want to take truly unusual photographs, alongside the lava columns rising out of the sea. According to the folklore legend, these are two trolls who attempted to drag a ship to land but were turned to stone.

Day 2: Vestmannaeyjar →Hofn

sygic-travel

The drive up to Hofn is about the same length as Day 1. This leaves you plenty of time to explore and go on at least one longer adventure. This part of Iceland is still relatively tourist-heavy, as you’re still near Reykjavik.

Stay the NightOld Airline Guesthouse. We had a great night here. Very calm and very comfy.

Dinner: Z Bistro

Sights:
There is a ton to do on the way to Hofn.

  • Fjaðrárgljúfur – Formed at the end of the last Ice Age, this canyon is definitely worth the trip. Admire the views as you hide along the river.
  • Black Waterfall – Popular attraction in Skaftafell National Park.
  • Skaftafell – A breathtaking nature reserve somewhat reminiscent of alpine landscape. The climate is relatively mild which render the park well accessible. The vast range of hiking trails make this area an ideal destination for those who like outdoor activities. Also, Skaftafell is a popular destination during winter time not only due to lesser crowds, but also for its beautiful icy appearence.
  • Glacier Lagoon – Perhaps one of the world’s greatest natural jewels. The lagoon is a must see while here and definitely worth the trip.

Day 3 & 4: Hofn→ Lake Mývatn

trip-to-iceland_2

On this day we drove a lot until Lake Mývatn. It was about six hours driving. But we stayed 2 nights at Lake Mývatn. And it was a great decision, because we had 2 nights of Northern Lights.

Stay the nightVogafjós Guesthouse – Awesome guesthouse set in a unique natural environment.
Dinner: Gamli Bistro

Sights:
The route along the southeastern coast, through the East Fjords, is probably one of the most underrated parts of Iceland, but it is beautiful. The Lake Mývatn region is one of the most interesting and unusual parts of Iceland.

  • Dettifoss – Set in Vatnajökull National Park, it is said to be the most powerfull waterfall in Europe. It’s 45 metres high and 100 metres wide.
  • Víti Crater – The word “víti” means “hell” in Icelandic. Despite the name, this calm place with amazingly clear blue water does not resemble hell at all. See yourself.
  • Krafla Caldera – One of the best known craters in Iceland is worth visiting for its beautiful opaque lake.
  • Námafjall – In this geothermal area, you can admire colorful sulfur crystals and try to hike a short trail.
  • Myvatn Nature Baths – This soothing bath will help you relax and improve your health, thanks to the minerals in the water. A great experience.
  • Hverfjall – Hverfjall, also known as Hverfell. Explore this volcano, one of the most symmetrical craters in the world.
  • Lake Mývatn – A popular tourist destination. The natural beauty is something to behold and the waterbirds population is abundant.

Day 5: Mývatn→ Laugarbakki

trip-to-iceland_3

On this day, you are basically crushing it all the way from North Iceland, to the edge of the West Fjords. It’s one of the longer drives you’ll have. You’ll also pass through Akureyri, which is Iceland’s second largest urban center. Worth a stop for food and supplies.

Stay the NightHotel Laugarbakki. Fully renewed. Great restaurant and hot tubes.
Dinner: Hotel Laugarbakki

Sights:
There are only a few listed sights on this route. But prepper yourself for gorgeous open roads and unexpected scenery.

  • Aldeyjarfoss – A beautiful waterfall with impressive surroundings.
  • Goðafoss Waterfall – Also called the Waterfall of the Gods, this waterfall is truly impressive. The water of the river falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters. Marvel as its shades of blue even during some dreary weather which is rather common in Iceland.

pedrofilipefotografia_0360 pedrofilipefotografia_0361 pedrofilipefotografia_0362 pedrofilipefotografia_0363 pedrofilipefotografia_0364 pedrofilipefotografia_0365

Day 6 & 7: Laugarbakki → Reykjavik

trip-to-iceland_4

You’re almost home! This next drive takes you to Reykjavik, which is very close to the Golden Circle attractions. But before you got to Snaefellsnes Peninsula. It was a quick detour, but it worth it.

Stay the Night: Airbnb – Laugardalur. Great house near city center with a lot of space and very modern.

Sights:
We stayed 2 nights in Reykjavik. We had time to visit the Golden Circle attractions, to visit Reykjavik city centre. It is a small city to visit by foot, with a vibrant and modern feel with a lot of street art and culture.

  • Bridge between  the Continents – A bridge between Euroasian and North American tectonic plates.
  • Kirkjufellsfoss – Waterfall. Definitely worth the detour.
  • Blue Lagoon – A geothermal spa, located in a lava field.
  • Church of Hallgrímur – This architectural gem will take your breath away. The design of the building is really something unique and a must see.
  • Thingvellir National Park – A UNESCO World Heritage site. The park may be famous for being the first place where the Icelandic parliament assembled, but it’s splendor and sport activities that attract its visitors.
  • Öxarárfoss – The stream of the Öxará river falling to the Almannagjá gorge is one of the main attractions of Thingvellir National Park.
  • Geysir – The one that named them all. Usually, it erupts daily, but even if you don’t manage to see the water, it is definitely worth a visit.

The last thing a lot of people do in Iceland is visit the Blue Lagoon (about 45min from Reykjavik, near the airport). If you’ve never been, go check it out. But personally, I didn’t loved it. We went there just before going to the airport and it was ok to relax. I much prefer the Mývatn Baths.

One more big thanks to Lagoon Car Rental for all the support. You were amazing, guys.

I hope that this post would be helpful. If you need more details, please feel free to contact me.

Hugo, João e Cátia (minha querida esposa), obrigado por terem feito parte desta aventura única e memorável nas nossas vidas.

Destination Wedding | Patricia + Pedro @Convento de Alpendurada

Este é um daqueles casamentos que nos marcam e que vai ficar na nossa memória durante muitos anos, não só pelo casamento incrível, mas também pela Patricia e pelo Pedro. A Patricia e o Pedro começaram como nossos clientes, mas rapidamente se tornaram nossos amigos. Deixem-me recordar-vos neste link a nossa passagem pela Bélgica para a Sessão Engagement. Ao recordarem este post percebem que o bem receber deste casal está num patamar muito elevado.

O casamento foi uma fantástica e rica mistura de culturas. Reparem bem… A Patricia é belga e o Pedro português. Conheceram-se na Hungria e estão a morar em Londres.

O casamento foi no Convento de Alpendurada e o local não podia ter sido melhor escolhido. Tivemos um London Bus para transportar os convidados, actuação da Tuna de Medicina da Universidade do Porto e baile de máscaras ao som do Fantasma da Ópera e nos claustros do Convento. Claro está que a festa durou até de manhã. De manhã mesmo e com o sol já bem alto. Para isto também ajudou e muito o DJ Miguel Valongo. Com ele não há como falhar e em muito contribuiu para a festa estar sempre ao rubro.

Muito mais haveria a dizer, mas prefiro que as imagens contem o resto da história.

This is one of those weddings that mark us and that will stay in our memories for many years, not only for the amazing wedding, but also because Patricia and Pedro. Patricia and Pedro started as our customers, but quickly became our friends. Let me remind you the link to our trip to Belgium for the Engagement Session. By reading this post you can easily realize that the hospitality of this couple is at a very high level.

The wedding was a fantastic and rich mixture of cultures. See why… Patricia is Belgian and Pedro is a portuguese boy. They met in Hungary and they are living in London.

The wedding was in Convento Alpendurada. And what a great place… We had a London bus to transport the guests, Tuna of Medicine played a serenata and masquerade at the sound of Phantom of the Opera and in the cloisters of the Convent. It is clear that the party lasted until morning and DJ Miguel Valongo had an important role on that. He is an awesome DJ and contributed greatly to the party.

There’s much more to be said, but we prefer that the images tells the rest of the story.

Sneak Peek | Cláudia + Hugo @Quinta de Alvre

Domingo chuvoso e choquito… Mas confesso que está a saber-me tão bem estar em casa com a manta nas pernas. Hoje vou levantar um bocadinho o “véu” e mostrar-vos algumas imagens do casamento da Cláudia e do Hugo. A Claudinha e o Huguinho Fisgas são apenas e só uns dos nossos melhores amigos. Ter a oportunidade de fotografar o casamento deles não foi um “trabalho”, mas sim um prazer enormíssimo… Rimos, choramos, dançamos até não poder mais. Cláudia e Hugo, espero que gostem.
