I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.

Photo taken by Rita Rocha at one of my happiest days: my own wedding!
I dream, and I dare to live the dream. I am a wedding photographer and if I had the chance to be anything at all, anything I dared to imagine, anything that made me happy... I would still be a wedding photographer!
I love weddings, love people and love love, but mostly I love dreaming with my eyes open, capturing emotions and unfathomable moments that may never be repeated.
I also love traveling - almost as much as I love coming home to my husband (to whom I married 3 times in the same year) and amazing dogs. I love laughter and freedom and, again, I really love happy people and people in love and getting to know them is a huge perk of my job!
I have a few funny stories in my backpack and can tell you some quirky details about myself, such as the fact I’ve never eaten a burger at McDonalds (or intend to). Or that I have a thing for weird dance moves and a soft spot for random facts.
I ask a lot of questions and I really hope to get many answers, because I want to know what makes people tick - and I’ll make my absolute best to make you happy with gorgeous images of one of your most wonderful days!
