The idea of creating something new makes me feel vibrant and excited. I hope you feel the same way.
Every single time I photograph a stunning wedding or work collaboratively in an editorial project, I get home at the end of the day and feel incredibly alive — like I’m on fire. There’s something about photography that fulfills me, drives me and reconnects me to my childhood.
I’m driven by stories, the rare, untold narratives that unfold as I meet with and connect to individuals. My ability to identify with and understand others, along with my passions for creativity and self-growth, have led me to discover the authentic elements within each of us that we tend to tuck away.
I use photography to bring unforgettable stories to life, combining my passions for people, creativity and self-growth. Looking back, I feel I’ve spent most of my life seeking elusive opportunities for storytelling.
I believe in telling unforgettable stories, filled with elements of authenticity, soul and exclusivity.
There’s a certain luster of creativity that I bring to light with my film photography and creative editorial work.
I strive to combine my luxurious style with the bold, original taste of passionate individuals. Let’s make an impression with intention.
I am from a close-knit beach town called Vila Velha, a place enclosed by the Atlantic Ocean and the rainforest in Brazil. I was influenced by Vila Velha’s unique landscape, diversity and culture as a fishing village. I grew up immersed in Brazil's natural beauty, sparking my passion for photography.
Being from Brazil, a country in which weddings occur mostly at night, I wasn’t interested in wedding photography until I fell in love with the intimate, curated weddings that are often held in French chateaus or historical manors, filled with so much light here in the states. The bright light and carefully planned elements of luxury bring in a unique beauty I’m unaccustomed to.
Growing up, I was intrigued by an old, vintage, Kodak accordion film camera that my dad left behind. I was obsessed with the mechanics of it and how the image would "happen" from that device. Now film photography has become my passion, and I’ve spent time studying light and sharing my knowledge with others.
Wedding photography, I’ve noticed, heals me. I can feel the overflowing love from my couples. It feeds my soul and heals a part of me that was unknowingly broken.
