After working as a chemist for five years, Bruna realized that the corporate life just wasn’t for her. She wanted to learn something new, and work in a more creatively diverse field. Remembering how much she loved looking back at pictures and marvelling at how they were able to eternalize a single moment, she figured she’d dabble in photography as a hobby. Bruna bought her first DSLR camera and began to explore—and it was love at first sight.
A self-proclaimed romantic, becoming a wedding photographer felt like the natural choice for Bruna. She knows that couples can be too stressed out on their big day to absorb every little moment and special detail. She loves delighting couples by capturing every moment of the day, so they can re-live and appreciate everything that happened on their special day. This is what makes it all worth it for Bruna.
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
Life is too short to be perfect! As a mix of romantic-goofy myself, I love capturing in-between moments, funny laughs and raw emotions. I always say to my couples “it’s your wedding day, you should enjoy every single minute because it will end in a blink of an eye!” I want you to have an experience with me. I want to know what you love to do together on the weekends, how your fiancé proposed and how you see yourselves in 10 years! Because when we get to know each other, I am able to capture your love story the way you deserve.
Yes, I love creating jaw-dropping photos that you will hang on your wall, as well as capturing those candid moments that are unplanned and unposed and are so special for you! I want to give you photographs that transport you back to the feeling you had in the moment they were taken.
“I've always admired photography and how one single picture could eternalize a moment.”
Bruna began to study photography on her own and within the year, she was doing shoots for friends. One of her closest friends saw the spark that photography ignited in her, and witnessed the passion she had for the craft. She encouraged her to quit her corporate job and pursue her dreams of being a professional photographer.
Bruna was invited by her friend to photograph a community centre for formerly homeless seniors in Brazil. Her time in the tropical country was one of the most life-changing experiences of her life.
After that, she knew she’d found her calling, and started down the path of becoming a professional photographer.

TELL US ABOUT ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE SHOOTS
I have several favorites, but there’s one specific photo that comes to mind. I’ll never forget photographing this bouquet toss; it was all dark, and all the single ladies were lined up and poised to catch the bride’s bouquet, when a guy came running out of nowhere, snatched it, and ran away! The photo captured the exact moment he got his hands on the bouquet—it was such an epic sight, I couldn’t believe I’d caught it in real time. The bride was in position, the guy was running with the bouquet, and all the girls were yelling and pointing. It was a hilariously candid moment, and I was so glad I got to memorialize it with a photo for the bride and groom. Beautifully posed portraits are nice, but there’s something about capturing little moments like that, that can really take a person back in time and help them relive the moment.
