Nós somos a Paula e o Valter e juntos criámos a Fotolux.
Somos casados (na vida e profissionalmente), temos 2 filhos e 2 cães, pois a vida é assim, é sempre melhor aos pares e por isso trabalhamos juntos.
Somos do centro deste cantinho da Europa que se chama Portugal e não podíamos estar melhor localizados para poder percorrer pequenos e longos caminhos e assim conhecer tantas histórias e registar tantos dias incríveis.
Claro que somos diferentes um do outro e são essas diferenças que enriquecem o que fazemos.
Não será difícil encontrarem-me de lágrima ao canto do olho de máquina na mão. É a emoção e o sentir que me move.
A fotografia apareceu na nossa vida em 2011 e como que por magia veio para ficar. O Valter era músico desde que se lembra de ser gente e eu trabalhava na área de telecomunicações… nada a ver, não é? Ou talvez sim, até porque, tanto a música como a fotografia são formas de comunicar não-verbais, mas universais.
We are Paula & Valter and together we created Fotolux.
We’re married and we have 2 kids and 2 dogs… it’s always better in pairs and that’s why we work together.
We are from the center of this little corner of Europe called Portugal and we couldn’t be better located to be able to travel short and long roads to capture so many love stories.
Of course we are different from one another, and these differences enrich what we do.
The sense of aesthetics and perfection live with Valter while sensitivity and emotion are on my side.
It won’t be difficult to find me with a tear in the corner of my eye, holding a camera in my hand. It’s the emotion and the feeling that moves me.
Valter will be there next to me, nodding his head and asking why I’m crying again. But for a short time, because he can’t stand still more than 3 seconds in the same square meter.
Photography appeared in our lives in 2011 and as if by magic it came to stay. Valter was a musician for as long as he can remember and I worked in the telecommunications area, nothing to do with photography, right? Or maybe so, because both music and photography are non-verbal, but universal, ways of communicating.
In photography, we like a little bit of everything but weddings are our passion. Is there such a rollercoaster day of emotions as a wedding day?
Where do we find longing, happiness, love, anxiety and nervousness all in the same day? And the tears and smile at the same moment?
For us, emotions are the basis of photography and there is no other area that fulfills us as much as wedding photography.
We have a creative / documental style, and we try to capture all the little details that make your day.
We like relaxed weddings and easy going couples and we like to be discreet, almost invisible, to capture the true essence of the day, true moments with true people and true emotions.
We like couples in love who want to live this day in their own way, without rules or protocols!
