Jess & Aaron


Forte Da Cruz, Portugal


Jess & Aaron were two of the most laid back fun loving couples we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. They travelled all the way from Oklahoma to get married in the historic Forte Da Cruz in Cascais, Portugal.

They started their morning in the Albatroz hotel on the beachfront in Cascais. The sea blue & nautical old world colours of the hotel complimented the airy paired back style of their day perfectly.

Aaron celebrated his Mexican roots with some pre-ceremony tequila along with his groomsmen before walking the short distance to their church. The church which boasts a gold alter is located in Cascais centre only a short walk from the Albatroz Hotel.

After their ceremony Jess & Aaron took some family pictures in the park opposite the church before we took some time for couple portraits in the gardens. We had the pleasure of also shooting a pre-wedding photo-shoot with Jess & Aaron a few days prior where we captured some of the unique vistas Cascais has to offer.

Their celebrations continued in the magnificent Forte Da Cruz in Estoril. Their guests were treated to an outdoor DJ and drinks reception before making their way for dinner in the lovely pavilion catered by the exquisite Penha Longa Catering.

The night-time party took place on the terrace in Forte Da Cruz in the balmy night air overlooking Estoril beach. It was a pleasure to be chosen as Jess & Aaron's wedding photographers in Portugal for their epic destination wedding x
