I’m Brazilian, but I have lived in Canada and have spent a third of my life in the USA. Started living the city life in Los Angeles and made my way west to the Islands
I love the fact the I live on an island in the middle of the Pacific. Maui has been home for the past 14 years. I share my island life with my daughter Isabella and cat Kitty-kitty.
I love surfing, Cycling. I’m a craft beer lover. I don’t think anything beats watching the sunset on the beach with your people enjoying a pint. I’m mostly vegan but eat sushi occasionally ( couldn’t give that up). Music inspires me so much! It’s inspiring me right now to write this “about me” and it will probably inspire me to edit your wedding photos as well. Sunshine makes me stoked but rainy days are a must too. No rain no rainbows. Oh, and there’s also coffee.
Photography has been my passion for a long timer and it didn’t start with a romantic story at all. My grandpa didn’t give me an old film camera. My dad didn’t have a dark room in the basement. I actually got my first camera when I was 17 with my own money and it was one of those old digital cameras with a tiny screen in the back. But I used that camera to the ground. I can’t even remember what happened to it. I just fell in love with freezing moments and telling stories, both important moments and not so important moments. But really, I do believe that that’s all we take from this life. The moments we have with the people we love.
My approach to wedding photography is a little different. Keeping it simple and relaxed, I seek out the real, raw and emotional moments within the wedding day. I look to create intimate, honest images of my couples and strive to document this in a way that is as unique as their own love story. Whether I’m at a big wedding, an intimate elopement, a beautiful engagement, or a casual couple session – if there’s love involved I’d love to be there.
