Born in France, grown between Portugal and Switzerland. As a kid I wanted to become an architect and as an architecture student I wanted to work somewhere in between architecture and photography.
My name is Luis Mateus and I'm from Portugal, living in a beautiful city, Porto. I've been a wedding photographer for almost 15 years. I studied photography at Instituto Português de Fotografia ( IPF ) -Oporto, 2000.
After majoring in advertising, I worked in various fields of art and communication back in my native Brazil. But it was only in wedding photojournalism that I´ve found real vocation and passion.
Paulo Castro began his photographic journey in 2003. It all began as a hobby. In "the National Park of Peneda-Gerês," where his first pictures were taken, he learnt to watch the light and understand the photographic technique.
Luis was born in 1982 in Oporto. He received a bachelor’s degree in Photography and an Academic Degree in Arts and Communication by ESAP – School of Arts of Oporto - Portugal.
Pedro Vilela was born in Lisbon Portugal in 1981. He receive a academic degree in Communication by UAL – Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa, and attending a photojournalism classes in Cenjor in 2004.
As a wedding photographer the work that I develop reflects the way I see and feel the world. It is based on photojournalism, where the photographer is an external element to the action, an observer. The human element has always been my passion. I try, above all, to tell a story, a story about people.
Stepan has been photographing weddings and love affairs for more then ten years.
