My husband and I met Anastasia about a year ago and we had been attracted to her aesthetic and beautiful work, besides she is a wonderful, sweet, down-to-earth photographer in person.

She and a colleague covered our wedding day and the day that followed this past June in Lisbon and the surrounding area, and the pictures are simply breathtaking. She translated the emotions and ambiance of the day perfectly, and was always extremely sweet, helpful and professional all throughout.

I cannot recommend Anastasia enough. She is extremely talented and will always give you the best of herself, and it shows in every single photograph. I will definitely be in touch with her during my future visits to Portugal for other photo sessions. Thank you SO MUCH for everything Anastasia!

Working with Anastasia was wonderful! My husband and I live in the US and were planning our wedding at My Vintage Wedding Portugal from abroad and

Anastasia was always very responsive, set up time for us to have calls or Skype before to answer questions, get to know each other and she was so wonderful to work with on the day. She helped give us suggestions for our timeline and when and where to take photos based on her experience at the venue.

Our photos came out amazing – they took my breath away!! She made us feel comfortable and captured our special day so perfectly. She also recommended our videographer and our video is so fantastic.

Would highly recommend working with Anastasia and her team!

When I first met Anastasia her enthusiasm excited me, I knew she was perfect for our wedding. Planning a wedding from a different country can be difficult but Anastasia made that easier with her approachable style and regular communication.

On the day we were made to feel very relaxed and comfortable, which is shown in the beautiful pictures. We have been blown away by the pictures and will treasure them forever as lasting memories of our happiest day.

By the end Anastasia felt like a friend, we were very happy to have her share our day with us.

We recently got married in Portugal and hired Anastasia to be our wedding photographer and we just received our photos from the wedding. As we look through them, we are completely transported back to the most amazing moments of our life.

We cannot thank her enough for all the incredible memories that she captured. We had three days of events leading up to our wedding day and she was there every day ready to go! She was very professional and made sure that every moment was captured in spectacular fashion.

All of the photos display family member’s and guest’s reactions, tears of joy, smiles, laughter and love. We honestly couldn’t be happier with Anastasia’s work and can’t recommend her enough.

She is THE BEST!

We can`t thank Anastasia enough for the amazing job she did as our wedding photographer.
From the moment we got in contact with her she was extremely professional and we felt very secure in our choice of photographer.
At the wedding day she was so self-driven and we hardly noticed that she was there. She worked so smoothly and were able to capture in real time moments, which makes the pictures even more precious to us.

We have now received all our photos and they just underline what great of choice it was to have Anastasia as our wedding photographer. With all the moments that she capture we are able to feel like we can relive the day.
You are amazing! Thank you for the great job you did for us Anastasia!

We are so very grateful for the beautiful way Anastasia captured us on camera for our special day. We planned our destination wedding in Portugal, and found Portugal Wedding Photographer to fit everything we were looking for from aesthetic to artistry options and budget.

We did not do engagement photos where we live, but Anastasia offered to do a photo session with us in Lisbon when we arrived before our big day. She met us in the morning at Praça do Comércio, as a couple we had never been in a photo session together and felt a bit awkward. Anastasia immediately helped guide us on what to do, making us feel at ease, capturing not only us in a beautiful way but also the historic buildings around us.

On the big day, she got there promptly on time and went straight to photographing our special moments, adding her own extra touches. All of our pictures and wedding pictures were perfect, and more than we could have asked for.

I would absolutely recommend Anastasia for wedding photos. She exceeded our expectations by a long shot. Even before we met, I was impressed by her professionalism, response time and little details like adding us on Instagram for a bit of insight in to who we are as a couple.

On the day of the wedding, she was punctual and ready to get to work immediately. Although she is very beautiful and stylish herself, she seems to be able to blend in and really capture those candid moments of emotion that may be hard to express if someone you don’t know has a camera around you!

My husband and I made it quite clear we didn’t want to spend ages taking photos, but Anastasia used her time wisely and got tons of shots we will be able to cherish for a lifetime. Beautiful, natural and with soft lighting that will age timelessly. Again, thank you so much!
