Wedding Photography Giveaway

Today is my Birthday! I am turning 31 years old and I guess I am now officially an adult. I don’t know what it means to be an “adult”, but I know it is not supposed to be boring! I find it at the same time scary and liberating. Yes, it is scary, yes time is going by so fast, yes I am aging. But I think if you ever meet me in person you will agree I am aging surprisingly well (and each day less modest!). I find it exciting I have finally reached the age of achievement. In my 20’s I was living an age of exploration, of discoveries. I moved from Brazil to Sweden, changed career paths, got a dog (after a lifetime with cats)… But 30 is the age of achievement. Sure, I will never stop exploring. I love learning, I love adventure (a mental adventure, might I add). But finally I feel I am getting results, all that hard work is starting to pay off. I feel more confident being myself, I feel good in my skin, my relationship is going strong. Yes. I woke up this morning knowing I have so much to celebrate and to be thankful for!!! You won’t get rid of me any time soon! 

To celebrate, I am officially starting the 2016 WEDDING GIVEAWAY!!! Continue reading to find out all about it!

The greatest change this year is I won’t be offering wedding videography as a prize anymore. I guess turning 31 has freed me to be truer to myself and pursuit my passions, so this time I want to gift Wedding Photography instead!

If you love my laid-back Documentary style with a touch of Fine Art and Editorial, then this is for you! I am looking for a fabulous couple that is truly in love and not afraid of showing it, a couple who loves laughing, kissing, dancing, looking at the stars together… A beautiful wedding with lots of natural light, in a beautiful location. Maybe it’s a thematic wedding in an exotic land, or an intimate affair at a rooftop. or maybe a simple relaxed backyard wedding – anything really, as long as it is YOU. If you love images that tell stories, that reveal passions… well, you’re in luck!!!

  • 5h of wedding photography with Maira Martins
  • Your wedding shot on film, with analog cameras, for that special look!

Late Summer Wedding Inspiration

This weekend I joined RockFotoEmma and 12 other photographers for a whole day of portfolio shooting at Görvälns Slott, a 1679 castle located north of Stockholm. Emma and her team had styled three beautiful couples, and we had access to not only the beautiful renaissance rooms of the castle, but also to its gardens and sunflower fields. More images to come as soon as I receive my film scans back from the lab!
