Hi! We are Teresa and Dado, and we are passionate about what we do.
Our aim at a wedding is to be close to you and your people as two friends with cameras in hand, to capture the spirit and emotion of your wedding in a documentary and an artistic and creative way. We also love to make portraits.
Photography is truly a passion for us, and we feel blessed to dedicate our life to it. We love to accompany people every step of the way and tell their stories just like they happened. We create stories filled with emotions and feelings. Being part of someone's special day is a gift that we cherish, and capturing moments for eternity is something that we value. After all, photography is one of the things (the only one, maybe!) that remains to tell the story. Those photographs will become like a family treasure that will be passed on from generation to generation.
