19 Jul Sheena & Gopal Engagement Session in Monserrate
An Engagement Session in Monserrate Palace, Sintra
Aguiam Wedding Photography | Portugal
Sheena and Gopal Engagement session in Monserrate Palace is dedicated to all the romantic dreamers. This British Indian couple wanted the perfect place for their intimate engagement photoshoot and found it here in Portugal, Monserrate. The exotic surroundings, the architecture and their colorful traditional Indian clothes were the perfect combination! Has you can see in the pictures below.
Monserrate Palace is a true ode to romantic architecture, due the refined taste of Francis Cook and the genius of the architect James Knowles Jr., who combined several influences that one can almost feel is living in a distant time and place. That whimsical Arabian design makes the Palacio de Monserrate the most visually striking building of Sintra, and in our opinion the most idyllic palace in Portugal too! It was inspired by the ideal of symmetry in Islamic architecture and inside there is exquisitely fines lattice carvings, geometric patterns and the sense of being in some luxurious Middle Eastern setting, that will unexpectedly amaze you and make you want to take the most pictures you possibly can. Surrounded with its lush gardens – that dazzle any visitor with the exotic species from the four corners of the world, its very easy to make you feel inspired like in fairy-tale, exhaling the most passionate photographs they can be and that is why Sintra is one of the most romantic destinations in the all wide world.
Here in Portugal we have great light almost all year round, and while the summer months are generally the season when we take more couples photographs because of the hot weather they search most, the other seasons are also fantastic times for photography with some truly dynamic weather. In this case, their indian engagement session was made in February, which gave us a beautifully Winter greenery in the landscape and amazing sky.
We were also very lucky to photograph their wedding, which last the usual three days of absolute lush, color, emotion, romance and dancing! We love Indian Weddings and look forward to share their wedding photographs too, as it was really delightful for us. Fall in love with the romance of Sheena and Gopal.
