I'm Ana Luísa, but most people call me Lu. I'm 31 years old and I'm from Porto, Portugal.

I'm a self-portrait artist and fine-art wedding photographer; I'm passionate and loud and I mostly likely won't apologize for it. My academics revolve around Conservation and Restoration of Art, Art History and Art Management, but photography is my source of joy and fulfillment — it's what I do for a living.

My favorite kind of work is conceptual/ fine-art, but I also photograph events, do portrait sessions for couples, families and anyone who wishes for them! I'm willing to travel, so if you're interested on hiring me, just send me a message!

Please DO NOT take any of my pictures without my previous consent. Do no use them to make any kind of graphics (icons, banners) without my previous authorization. Do not post them on tumblr or any other blogging tool without my consent and proper credit. Do not edit them in any way. My work is finished when I say it's finished, and you're not allowed to tweak it.

Please DO NOT instagram my photos without my consent.

Please DO NOT post my pictures on I've come to realize that it removes the proper credit, and everything I see of mine in there I will report — both the entry and the user.

Also, please do not tag me in photos in which I did not actively participate. If you tag me in a photo that has nothing to do with me (simply for me to see it) I will most likely erase the tag and go on with my life, no second look. If you'd like me to take a look at your work, just message me and I'll do my best to be able to do it.

I've been asked this by several people: my source for textures. I use a few by the lovely pareeerica and some others are of my own making. I don't normally post mine, but check out her work — it's amazing!

Also, credit for other textures I've used:

    "Lu is one of the most amazing people i know,not only as a photographer,but as an artist,person and friend. She amazes me with every single new shoot,she goes from 8 to 80 in a blink of an eye and she will never let you down on your expectation of what else can make you marvelled in her work. She photographs with passion,and as i have the chance and honor to work with her several times,i can honestly say that she's a force of nature, she loves what she does and she is never happy with less,she will always want more, better and much more beautiful. I look up to you,Lu,you know that,and you're one of my role models, inspirations, most brilliant friend and when you doubt of yourself remember of what you told me once 'I am a good photographer'!"

    "Lu, you promised me a print of my choice and so today I went through your entire photostream. I've followed your work for months now, and your uploads are always beautiful, but looking at page after page of your work this afternoon left me speechless.

    Your photographs remind me of sun-drenched afternoons and sleepy holidays. You have the most amazing gift of being able to capture tiny, real moments and make them into art. The way you see the world, and the way you capture and share it, are beautiful, and I hope this next year is as sunny as the last."
