Hi! I am a full-time photographer based in Lisbon, Portugal!
Being a photographer started at an early age since my grandfather, a photographer too, gave me his 63 Petri and told me about the magics of film photography. Since then, photography has become a love of a lifetime!
I could tell you all about my academic training and experience, but I would rather you to know a little bit of the person behind the lens. The dreamer and the down-to-earth woman. The photographer and the designer.
Well, when I'm not capturing love stories, it is all about my family, my dogs or the trips we take together. I have a lovely family and for sure they are my inspiration! An amazing husband, a beautiful daughter and two crazy dogs! We love to travel together and even more to return to our cozy home in Portugal!
Being at home is one of my favorite things! But I also love horse riding, yoga, nature, art, fashion, good music and home decor. I love to watch a good romantic comedy at the end of the day.
Oh, and I can't forget my craziness about bakery and tea shops, and probably couldn’t live without muffins and coffee too! :)
EARTHY INTIMATE EVERLASTING an experience AMUSING MOVING MEMORABLE
We believe we have a romantic, minimalist and conceptual style.
Looking for emotions, inspired by the human connection.
It's about getting to know our couples and know what's important to them. We like to be subtle and not interfere with the day's events.
We have a professional but relaxed attitude and we will help you to get the best shots on your wedding day, in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. For the most part of the day, you and your guests won’t even notice we are there. Our style and approach is to go with the flow and therefore your photos are spontaneous, authentic and right in the moment.
Elopements & Intimate Weddings
Photographing an intimate wedding, without or with a few guests, is an adventure that we always like to embrace.
We want to create memories for couples who are looking for an intimate, different, adventurous and romantic wedding.
An elopement usually takes place in the countryside, on a beach, in the mountains, or any other place that reveals the spiritual side of the couple.
The term "elope" means to flee secretly to marry.
Do you find anything more romantic than a wedding of this nature?
As a couple, we have always loved to travel and so it's a real joy of ours to combine our passion for wedding photography with our passion for travel to photograph destination weddings.
Naturally destination weddings involve a little more travel, so we always set off two days before the big day. This is just in case of any disruptions and also gives us plenty of time to meet you on site and get a feel for the place!
Getting married abroad can be a really grate way to explore the world and turn your wedding into a celebration with your closest family and friends.
If you’re interested in having us as your destination wedding photographer, get in touch.
Couple & Engagement
When we do a couple photo shoot, we are shooting a love story. We are celebrating a couple's connection. Each couple has a unique complicity. We want to capture their true essence.
An engagement photo shoot, is an informal pre-wedding shoot arranged before your wedding. Not only is it a great way to get to know us – your photographers, but it totally prepares you for your actual wedding.
Expect to receive approx 70 to 80 images from your shoot! We travel to you for your photo shoot to a location of your choice. That could be your home, a local park, beach etc… It’s up to you…!
Lifestyle portraits are a great option for those who don’t like the staged look of posed portraits. If you love taking candid photos yet still want nice, professional-looking portraits, try shooting lifestyle photography with us. At your new decorated home, at your work, doing what you love the most, we will capture the essence of your life. If you are thinking about creating a new lifestyle blog, we can help you!
Nothing is more valuable than family. Professional family photography sessions are the perfect excuse to spend quality time with the people who matter most.
We specialize in taking documentary style photographs with natural light. We take a friendly, fun approach to family photography and shoot in a natural, candid style. Our session will feel more like a fun family play date, with lots of laughter and smiles and some genuine happy moments captured.
We will capture your family bond in a way that you want to remember, showing the love and connection your family shares.
"Patricia is wonderful! I contacted her to photograph my elopement on a sail boat in Sesimbra. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day. The photos she took were just beautiful.
I am from Australia so I made arrangements for my wedding online. Patricia was always very responsive and helpful. On the day she did very well to make my husband Thiago and I feel comfortable and she captured some amazing candid photos of us. She is also a really lovely person who is very passionate about photographing weddings! Thank you so much Patricia!"

"We got in touch with Golden Hour to take a couple of pictures when we decided to visit Portugal. We were so amazed with the gorgeous scenery of the coast, that we didn't even notice they were still photographing. It was a very lovely afternoon, we laugh, shared our stories and the result was breathtaking. Now whenever we see these photos we want to go back to Portugal! When you come to Ireland we sure want another photo session with you please!"
