Youri Claessens Photography

A while ago we captured this lovely Portuguese family. I knew Rui because he is am amazing wedding photographer and he also helped me once out during a big wedding in Portugal.

Rui is a guy who loves the ocean and has a lot of creativity in him. Even though he started working as an engineer, his passion for photography completely took over his life 12 years ago, and he couldn’t be happier about it. When it comes to taking pictures, he likes to keep things simple and relaxed. He believes that capturing photos that are classy and not too complicated will stand the test of time. In a nutshell, his work is all about being timeless.

His wife is an Awareness Facilitator and Conscious Parenting Counselor, and they have a lovely daughter. We had the incredible opportunity to capture their beautiful family at the stunning Palacio Fronteira, which is located near Lisbon. This place is truly special, with its captivating charm and rich history. The palace itself has such exquisite architecture that you can’t help but be in awe of it. It’s no wonder that it’s a popular venue for weddings and other special occasions.

Speaking of weddings, we’ve already had the pleasure of photographing one wedding at Palacio Fronteira, and it was absolutely amazing. The combination of the palace’s grandeur and the surrounding natural beauty creates a truly magical setting, making it the perfect place to capture those precious moments on your special day.

After the photo session at Palacio Fronteira, we took a short trip to a nearby forest, right next to a small lake. It was a peaceful and serene location, and it was wonderful to have their daughter join us for this part of the session. We were able to capture even more beautiful moments in this natural setting.
