HELLO

My name is Maria and I am a Portuguese fine art photographer available to work across the world.

I am spontaneous, naturally kind, joyful and always on the go in between Lisbon and Marrakesh or traveling all around the world to photograph. I have been a freelance photographer for six years, and I have been dedicated mostly to fine art wedding photography, and in large part to destination weddings.

Nonetheless, in the last couple of years, I have developed a sudden interest in Travel photography especially since I have been exploring numerous destinations with my husband for his Travel Company. Through social media, I have been sharing some of those images, which has grown an attention from private to corporate clients, and nowadays Travel Photography has become another branch of my photographic services.

Through photography, I can express myself and have a profession where I can put my heart and soul at work. My inspiration comes from the love I feel for life and everything beautiful and genuine.

My photographic style is a balance between fine-art and documentary photography. My unique way of capturing light and scene aims to highlight the simplicity and beauty.

Welcome, I am looking forward to meeting you!
