What you'll do

We will meet next to the famous Ponte Luis, which we will cross before going on a relaxed walking tour of the historic area of Porto so you can discover the city and we can find great spots to take photos.

You'll have the city as your background and I'll help you find the right poses to capture your best looks. I will also snap some candid shots of you in these beautiful locations.

Wether you are a couple on a honeymoon, a family, a group of friends or travelling solo, I will take pictures you’ll cherish for years to come!

If you'd like, after the shoot, we can have a drink and I can share with you my favorite things to do and places to go in the city, like viewpoints, nice bars or local places to eat :)

Hi there! My name is Laura, I am a professional photographer based in Porto! I specialise in street photography, but also editorial work, portraits and events.

Other than taking pictures, I love meeting interesting people and sharing my experience of this amazing city and its culture.

I have been an expat here for 6 years and Porto has stolen my heart, so I want to help people discover howamazing it is! Nothing is better than getting lost in these small, charming streets, except if you have a photographer with you to help you capture the experience!

Where you'll be

We will meet in Cais de Gaia, right across the river, where you'll have Porto as your background, then we will cross the Dom Luís I bridge, which has the best view of the city and finally, explore the typical area of Ribeira.

Porto is great to take photos, we will explore its colourful streets, admire the view from the bridge and take beautiful photos for you to remember your trip. You will get a nice tour of the city and gorgeous background.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 11 reviews.

Laura has a very easy going attitude and makes the photoshoot feel like you are walking down the street with a friend. She takes you through the major sightseeing attractions but also to lesser known but equally beautiful back streets. Would definitely recommend!

Wow, I am back from Portugal but working with Laura was truly a highlight of my experience in Portugal. She was funny, kind, and exactly a great person to feel comfortable with if you aren't used to being in front of a camera. I especially recommend the experience for solo travelers as well! Thanks Laura 😊

Laura's experience was absolutely fantastic. She was so flexible with scheduling, and she really knew how to bring out my personality. She was so kind and open to sharing her own story, and I really felt connected to her. It was such a magical end to my time in Porto, and I can't wait to go back to see her again! I recommend this for any solo travelers who want to get a VIP experience and make an awesome friend during their travels. I cannot recommend this experience enough.

Laura told me she has already stayed here for six or seven years and I can definitely feel her love with Porto! And this makes her shooting filled with profession and enthusiasm. Not only the view the light the postures but she really made this shooting full of laughs! She like making the gifs, and I think this is a best way to record the emotions the feelings you had in your journey. And we walked around in Gaia, it is the place with the best view of Porto actually and I really appreciate her introduction of the street art there, that was fantastic! It was a really nice time with Laura!

I feel I am writing an personal message to Laura now but open for everyone to read. At the moment I just finished my work and commuting back home. Feeling a bit nostalgic from Porto. Ever since the photo walk started with Laura, we clicked immediately. The walk we had past really fast, blink you will miss it kinda fast. She has been living in Portugal for over 6 years now, and as a French expat , she has her deep and sophisticated way of appreciating Porto which you could expect more than getting from a normal local. She is really dynamic person and this also reflec to her work, I have never seen myself like what she captured me through her lens. (Hope one day Airbnb can add a function for the photography related experience program to comment with pictures.) To conclude, 1. If you are a female traveller who do solo travelling, Laura is the only one who offer the best quality photo walk in Porto which makes you to be confident in front of camera and forget about selfie stick 2. I got a new friend in Portugal who lover her job as a photogrpher a lot. FYI, after talking with Laura I do get to know she do also amazing wedding and food photograghy for individual booking. Ask her for more, you wont regret.

I had the absolute pleasure to meet Laura during the time of the corona virus outbreak. Although this sounds a bit strange, we were both able to stay positive and make the best out of the situation. With all the monuments and most shops being closed, this was definitely a highlight. I felt like I was hanging out with a friend, in a city where I know no one, and this is definitely what I am looking for when travelling alone. The few pictures I have seen so far looked stunning, and I am super excited to see the result. Little side note: for tourists that are still in Porto, please book a session with her. Now is the perfect time for a shooting, since you have the streets to yourself, and no one running through the shots!
