Photographer: Miguel Ponte
Miguel Ponte was born in 1979, in the beautiful archipelago of Madeira, in Portugal, where he currently lives and performs most of his work in wedding photography.
Despite having a degree in psychology and human resources management, his true passion has always been photography. Actually, those two facets of his life actually complement each other: To photograph people, you have to understand them.
His style is easily recognizable either by the vivid colors, the symbolism behind his landscape framings or by the natural look he inprints in his work. That way, when clients see their printed photos, they can actually revive moments as opposed to just remembering how and where the photo was taken.
He is currently one of the most awarded wedding photographers of the last few years, having won several awards in every major competition in the wedding business since 2018, from Fearless Photographers, to ISPWP, This is Reportage, Inspiration Photographers, ProWed or MyWed, where he currently ranks in the world top 20. However, besides winning the MyWed Awards Photo of the year in 2018, his biggest accolade has been this year’s Golden Camera for European Photographer of the Year 2021, in the wedding category.
