About Me

Thanks for visiting my site!

I am a photographer in the Algarve, Portugal. I am originally from U.S. but now live in the sunny beach town of Lagos with my restauranteur husband and my baby boy. I would describe my photography as a mix between fine art and photojournalism. As a kid, I always loved stealing my Mom's camera to take photos of the family and was the girl at high school parties with the camera in her hand making sure every embarrassing moment of teen years was captured. I started studying photography in 2009 and, since then, have fallen in love with the art. My goal is to create intimate, vibrant and energetic images. 

A little about me:

I have an ongoing love affair with Southern Europe and am always inspired by the colors of the Portuguese coastline, Spanish architecture and the Italian countryside. I love the laid-back culture, the openness of the people and, especially, the food. I think almost anything can be solved over a bottle of wine a good meal.

I love to travel and am happy to make a trip for your wedding or event. I  enjoy meeting new people and would love to get to know you! To get in touch, please use my contact form or send me an email to and feel free to follow my adventures on my instagram page @abbyribeirophoto
