About

I come from a small town in Southern of Brazil. I was always a dreamer and my search for knowing the world keeps me inspired to gain the goals that leads me forward… My family, my wife and my friends, special people that God put in my life, encourage me to be a better human being. Along the way photography has taken me to places I could never imagine and also allows me to be a counter, not only of my own history, but of incredible people I was fortunate to meet.

That 2015 was a great year, I got married with my princess Juliana and we moved to living in Australia. We’re so excited with Australian lifestyle and happy to living here, it’s a great challenge and a dream at the same time. We miss so much of our family and friends and because of this longing, we decided that once a year we’ll spend time in Brazil to review all these important people and shooting some weddings. About our wedding, was amazing, in short words was the most important day in our lives! Now I understand how photography is important for a weddings, well I’ll write about this soon, we can’t wait to choose some photos to share with you…

I’d really like to go for a coffee with every person that come here to get to know better my work. It would be amazing eliminate the coldness of an email and have an open conversation about your expectations on photography, but sometimes the distance avoid us from doing that. This is complicated because I believe that the trust necessary for you to give the photography of your wedding to me is earned through the eye contact, a good handshake and chat about life, relationships, challenges and even struggles that we all face in our daily lives.

Although I need to listen you, hardly I will shoot a wedding without knowing how things will happen and understand how you have been dreaming of this day. Since my biggest goal is to construct images that are meaningful to you I want to know what is important to you and this connection is extremely important. I want to shoot genuine projects, tell stories of people who truly love each other and let their emotions flow naturally, I want to photograph the soul of people who are wild and free.

Anyway, if you became identified with my personal way of telling stories, I invite you to read the rest of the text and at the end send me an email so we can arrange a chat about your wedding or photo shoot, either in person or via Skype.

QUESTIONS?

HOW LONG YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS?

I did my first wedding in 2009 and since then have been more than 200, but this number is not as important, year after year things change, our hearts and change our photography changes…

DO YOU TRAVEL TO SHOOT? WHERE DO YOU LIVE?

Certainly! I am available for shooting at any place you want. I currently live in Melbourne/Australia, but often photograph elsewhere. One per year I back to Brazil to renew my family and friends, and of course, shooting some weddings. I have photographed in various parts of Brazil, USA, Mexico and France and I love it. Tell me where you’re planning about your wedding day and I’ll be there.

HOW CAN I BOOK THE DATE OF MY WEDDING?

Let’s set up a meeting so we can negotiate the details of your wedding or photo shoot. We can schedule a coffee or a video conference via Skype. I charge 25% for booking I’ll send a formal contract and after these your date will be safely booked.

DO YOU SHOOT WITH FILM OR JUST DIGITAL?

I started shooting digital and 3 years ago I got my first roll of film and this drove me crazy! I like both but I’ll not give up on the look of the film. For digital work I use two high quality cameras and prime lenses. To do film work I use medium format and 35mm cameras with manual and auto focus system.

DO YOU SHOOT WITH SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER? 

Sometimes yes, I really like to shoot with creative friends but I need to know how big and complex will be your wedding. The second shooter is available with a separate fee, so let’s talk about your wedding and I can provide more informations to you.

WHEN I WILL RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

For large projects like weddings the time for processing and delivery of the photos is 8-10 weeks and for sessions 2-3 weeks.

HOW MANY PHOTOS YOU DELIVERY?

Depends how big will be your wedding, but normally I deliver around 600-800 images. You’ll get all these images in high resolution by a privity galley, there you can download and share with family and friends.

WHAT ABOUT PRINTS AND ALBUMS?

After receiving the link to download the images in private gallery you can purchase prints in Fine Art and conventional printing. Let me know if you have interest in albums and I can send you some options. I will publish soon some photos of the products I work with.

HOW DO I PAY?

The entire value of the photographic coverage will be paid up to the date of the event. You can pay by cash, bank transfer and even credit card through Paypal (in this case see additional fees). The amounts referring to books and albums can be negotiated for payment after the date of the event if you prefer.

If you read the entire text is because you have interest in my work and I am very happy for it. If you consider having my photography in your wedding or photo shoot I invite you to send me an email on the contact page!

Check the video above, that was filmed by my friend Bruno Zakarewicz during one of the sessions that I shot last year. This is my way of working, all the time I’ll try to invite my clients to relax and enjoy the day, the photography doesn’t need to be a stressed time. My desire is to build good memories, not only good photos.
