fine art photography

It has been my privilege to be entrusted with documenting treasured moments for couples around the globe. All philosophies and traditions share equally the honoring of love, and I never cease to be inspired by two people embracing and celebrating their devotion to each other. I cherish exceptional photography that not only will capture your carefully planned day, but will do so in a way that will feel natural and authentic, reflecting who you are as a couple. I aim to make even the shyest couples comfortable in front of my lens, allowing for romantic photographs that will capture your beauty, and the beauty of the day.

I love traveling to anywhere in the world. No matter how far or remote your celebration is, I would be delighted to photograph you there.


with gratitude,



As the daughter of a hotelier, I was born in Brazil as a European Union citizen and raised all over the world. Experiencing so much wonder at an early age instilled in me a desire to visually preserve memories.

I fell in love with the magical darkroom process at age 11, which eventually led to earning a fine art degree, magna cum laude, at the renowned photography school, Rochester Institute of Technology. This was during a very exciting time in the photography world when the industry began embracing a digital workflow, and I was fortunate to acquire a solid foundation in both film and digital mediums.

After working as an assistant in New York City to some of the industry's top photographers and magazines, I opened my own business more than a decade ago. Since then, I have had the honor of photographing exquisite weddings all over the world, from grand affairs to intimate celebrations.

My work has appeared in Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, Style Me Pretty, Inside Weddings, Elle Mariage, Green Wedding Shoes, Carats & Cake, Wedding Chicks, Destination I Do, Ruffled, The Knot, The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler, and many more.

My Background

Where it all began

I would love to hear about how you met, the experience you hope to create, walk you through my approach, and answer any questions you may have.


I will send you an agreement to review and sign. Once I receive it along with your 50% retainer, your date is officially reserved.


Together with your planner, we will finalize your photo timeline, family formals list, discuss travel plans, choose the location for your engagement session, and go over any remaining logistics.


In preparation for your wedding day, I will guide you in front of my camera and find your best angles. These photographs will capture this special time in your lives, in a meaningful place that reflects your love and personalities.


Everything you have been preparing for culminating into the most joyous celebration. You will be making a lifetime commitment to your favorite person, surrounded by all your loved ones. It is time to relax and completely enjoy every moment of this special occasion.


After receiving your wedding gallery, allow me to create an exquisite, handcrafted album for you made of the finest materials to pass down as an heirloom for future generations.
