I’m Maira,

a Brazilian girl living in a tiny little apartment by the forest, together with my husband and our golden retriever Astro.

I create my best work when I feel a connection to the couple, when I see them for who they really are. On a wedding day I work with this mindset, trying to create some pretty rad images that are all about the two of you. I don’t want to be yet another photographer, shooting yet another wedding… that’s just boring. I am looking for meaningful stories and evocative images.

If you are looking for:

photos that show real emotion;
photos to make your heart beat faster — or skip a beat altogether;
photos that focus more on the people, than decorations;
photos to make your friends envy of all your cool;
photos where you look and feel amazing;
photos that are a pretty mix of photojournalism and fine art;
photos you actually want to go back to and look again and again.

Well, I’m glad you’re here. Let’s talk!

The Experience

There is a key ingredient in making good photos happen and that is connection. It is just very important to me that we feel like we are a good match to each other. That’s not BS. To create art, you need to be into me, the work I do. And I need to be into you, inspired by you.

I take on a limited amount of work every year, so from my point of view it makes sense to only shoot what I love. I don’t want to be just another photographer shooting just another wedding, mechanically pushing the buttons on my camera. Anybody can do that. My work is so much more than that. You invest in me, and I invest in you. Let’s make art together!
