Algarve Engagement at Praia Falesia


We met up with Mikheila and Kym a few days before their wedding at Praia Falesia for their Algarve engagement session. We had decided to check out a new portion of the beach that we had never been to before and it ended up being a gorgeous setting. Mikheila and Kym traveled all the way from Australia where they live to get married here in Portugal. Mikheila is no stranger to Portugal, however, having grown up here. We arrived at the beach an hour before sunset and caught the most amazing light cascading over the cliff. We walked back and forth, again and again, photographing them in this incredible light. They were such troopers with us as this shoot was also the first time outside of test rolls that we shot the Contax system and we were still getting the hang of shooting it. After running them around (literally haha) we said our goodbyes trying to control the excitement we always feel right before sending off the film to be processed. We couldn’t be happier with the Images that were scanned back to us. We hope you enjoy looking through them as much as we do!
