I am an elopement and intimate wedding photographer. A Brazilian based in Dallas, Texas. I am a yoga lover, dog mom, kombucha enthusiast and a huge fan of Beyoncé. I have loved photography since I was 9 years old when I first found my mother's film camera. I still remember photographing everything around me. When I turned 18 I got my first Nikon and I haven't stopped shooting since. Photography is my safe place, shooting with my couples keeps my heart beating and enriches my soul. I am as cheesy as it gets.
Every love story is unique on it is own way, mine for example, I had to fly 4,560 miles to meet the love of my life.
Listening to people's love stories is one of the things that helps me to get inspired for my sessions, elopements and weddings. I would love to hear yours!
Couples planning an adventure session or elopement: The LNT website is full of information how to help to preserve the wilderness. Make sure to stay ALWAYS on trails and follow the 7 principles to LNT.
Photographers: Make sure to take the course to become a LNT aware photographer. More information on Leave No Trace website.
The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace provide an easily understood framework of minimum impact practices for anyone visiting the outdoors.
1 - Plan ahead and prepare.
2 - Travel and camp on durable surfaces.
3 - Dispose of waste properly.
4 - Leave what you find.
5 - Minimize campfire impacts (be careful with fire).
6 - Respect wildlife.
7 - Be considerate of other visitors.
With the increase of visitors to public lands such as National Parks, State Parks and wilderness areas the damages to the environment has also grown. In order to protect such a fragile environment people in charge of the public lands were forced to add permits to visitors and/or increase the cost of the ones already in existance.
It's our duty to make sure our public lands are safe for the next generations. That said, I would like to introduce you to Leave No Trace. The LNT accomplishes its mission by providing innovative education, skills and research to help people care for the outdoors. By working with the public and those managing public lands, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics focuses on educating people—instead of costly restoration programs or access restrictions—as the most effective and least resource-intensive solution to land protection.
