An Engagement Session in Cascais
by Aguiam Wedding Photography, Portugal
Alyssa and Bret engagement session is fun, romantic and very sensual. Yes we have it all in one go and this is what we call chemistry! This american couple, whilst traveling here for the last decisions along side with their Wedding Planner Carina, before their return for the actual wedding in July, decided to have their engagement session in the heart of Cascais. They had both sea and the old part of town full of Azulejos (tiles) and the typical Calçada Portuguesa (typical portuguese mosaic paving). It was January, so one can only imagine that it was a bit cold adding rain to keep it more interesting! Do you think that they were bothered? Of course not! Both embraced it and dealt with the situation perfectly. When you are having fun with the love of your life, nothing really matters don’t you agree? Only about 30 minutes away from the busy capital Lisbon you find Cascais. It is the perfect get away from the rush life. If you don’t want to bring the car, you have the train that leads you there. The journey is quite beautiful and peaceful. If you decide to bring your car, the famous route by the coast line, Marginal, provides you a perfect view. Here you have mountain and beaches. Whether or like to hike at the amazing Sintra mountain or go surfing (Carcavelos is the perfect beach but you have to check the conditions first) or windsurfing at the incredible Guincho beach, there are a lot of activities over here. Not so long ago, Cascais was a fishermen village and this is why the architecture is so specific. You have those small houses, some are very colorful, narrow streets where you can actually lose your sense of direction because they all look the same! Because of all these reasons, Cascais has a strong foreign community. If you fancy a good pint of Guiness, you won’t have any trouble finding a nice Irish Pub for a quick stop. You will be amazed with the number of Irish and English living here.
