Memorable Family Photography
We are based in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Lisbon, Portugal but available worldwide.
Our photographic style can be described as soft, organic, and classic, using lots of natural light and minimal editing to maintain the natural beauty of your photographs.
We incorporate elements of both photojournalism and traditional photography. This harmonious approach captures your family photoshoot as it unfolds naturally while ensuring we take essential portraits of the families.
For the comfort of the family, we recommend having the photo session at your hotel on the beach. If you prefer another beach, let us know and we can recommend a beautiful public beach.
We recommend having the photo session in the morning, 1-2 hours after sunrise, or in the evening, one hour before sunset. However, anytime is possible. Ask for specific times as sunrise and sunset change throughout the year.
Normally, one hour is enough. When there are more than 12 people, we recommend 1.5-2 hours to have good photos of each member of the family.
For a one-hour photo session, we deliver 60 photos selected and edited. For a two-hour photo session, we deliver 120 photos selected and edited, plus the best 10 photos edited in Photoshop. For videos, we deliver a video of 2-3 minutes (one song in length).
We recommend comfortable beachwear. For women, dresses work very well. Light colors work best: white, light blue, terracotta, pink, yellow, light green, and salmon. Recommend accessories: hats, sunglasses, and scarfs.
In one hour, we recommend a maximum of two wardrobe changes. In two hours, there can be up to 3 wardrobe changes.
You will receive photos no later than 3 days after the session. Photos edited in Photoshop 10 to 15 days after the session. Videos: maximum 7 days after the session.
For photography, we use the Canon 6D Mark II and Alien Bee lighting equipment for sunset photography. Lenses: full frame 50mm 1,4, 100mm macro 1,4, 24-105mm, and 70-200mm 2.8. For video, we use the Sony 7 III, DJI Mavic Pro drone, Ronin RSC2 stabilizer, RODE microphones, and the ZOOM H6 audio recorder.
As stated in our cancellation policy, we hold onto the deposit as a cancellation fee. However, you can use the deposit toward a future photoshoot without an expiration date.
We recommend that our clients look for photo inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram and share them with us. That way, we’ll know what kind of photos you like.
Yes! Our in-house videographer, Gabriel Silva, provides videography and aerial drone footage.
We prefer to take natural photographs and let you be yourself! We allow couples to flow in the moment and leave it up to us to capture your true essence. However, we will also show you some examples of poses, and provide instructions to capture different moments. Little by little, you will feel very comfortable in front of the camera!
We do a meticulous job editing, allowing 30-60 minutes for each photo. We can remove background objects, adjust lighting, and correct aesthetics. The possibilities are endless but edits are light to maintain the natural beauty of the photograph.
