With a camera in hand and a David Bowie song in my heart, I’ve spent nearly two decades telling SoCal love stories.

When my grandmother gave me my first camera while I was still a young child in Brazil, she had no idea she had just handed me my future. But with every overwhelming moment of beauty and connection I documented on my faithful Kodak Instamatic, I fell more in love with the powerful magic of photography. Finally, my passion inspired me to move to the United States where I pursued my art at Santa Monica College while simultaneously working at a local wedding and portrait studio. And from then on, I’ve chased seaside sunsets and desert dreams alongside couples in love.

Today, with a style that is natural and romantic, I bring a contemporary flair to elegant, bohemian wedding celebrations. From collaborating with your coordinator to preserving delicate details, I ensure each element of your finely crafted wedding day can be cherished forever.

And from your great grandmother’s diamond earrings to your “something blue” Stuart Weitzman, I document all the puzzle pieces that form a wedding day that is uniquely you. But above all, I promise that, in front of my lens, you’ll look beautiful and truly have the time of your life on your wedding day.

I look forward to learning your love story, trading photos from our latest travels, and preserving the best day of your life through images that will take your breath away.

If I see a dog, I absolutely HAVE to pet it! I love dogs so much even though I can’t own one myself. If I could though, I’d rescue a lab terrier mix like my sister’s dog, Bear, tomorrow!

Fun Facts

 Even though you’ll normally spot me with an arugula salad or green juice from EreWhon, I’m absolutely weak for sweets! Cupcakes, brigadeiros (my favorite Brazilian sweets), sugar cookies...I love them all!

Fun Facts

I absolutely love the feeling of turning on a show so familiar that you can quote every line! A couple of my forever favorites are Seinfeld and Sex and the City.
