Valéria Gonçalves and Wander Faria form a couple. And together they are dedicated to investigating the beauties of marriage - both themselves and others.
In 2008, they founded VALWANDER, a company specializing in wedding records and exciting photography in Belo Horizonte.
Exciting and unique. Whether the kiss in the church (or outside), the triumphal entrance inside the white dress, the reunion of family and best friends are scenes that seem common to various marriages, to Val and Wander, each of them extraordinary. Through her lenses, more than the details of the ceremony and the great day, the love story that led the bride and groom to the exchange of alliances is told.
To tell you, before, photographers hear these stories and realize, from the tastes of each couple, what is the style of the tailor-made coverage for the bride and groom. One of the milestones of this personalization is that the studio was the first to photograph a football-loving bride inside the Mineirão stadium in 2008.
Val and Wander are passionate about photography and people. The result of this is an exquisite portfolio and trained eyes to always innovate. The angles sought by the two are capable of showing the spontaneity - and the amusement - of even the most solemn moments. Because love, besides being beautiful, is fun. It's exciting. Photography can also be.
