Elopement: Modern elopement in Oporto, Portugal

An elopement photoshoot in my hometown.

Sometimes I feel that we are still very much stuck with prejudices, with how things should be, because someone tells us that it is. The most beautiful thing about being on the other side of the camera is being able to watch love between people in its most genuine form. And so, I’m in favor of breaking with what we’re supposed to be and being what we simply are.

This editorial I did in Oporto, Portugal, with Pilar and Borjas had this end, to show that getting married can be whatever we want it to be! What do you think of this modern and bold mood?
Would you do something like that?

Thank you to the wonderful team that accompanied me on this day
and made this elopement photoshoot possible for this to happen!
