Rio de Janeiro and Petropolis wedding photography by Ana Telma Furtado of Brazil

Hello! I am Ana Telma, a photographer for weddings and families, and I am very happy that you are here on my WPJA member profile, looking to know a little more about me and my work. :) I hope you like! I am a person who loves friends. I defend everyone with all my strength if they need to. I worry and hope for their happiness. I am a bit of a melon head to remember birthdays, phones and other things like that, but they are always in my prayers and, certainly, always in my heart. I LOVE cats and am the mother of two kittens, Bill and Ivanka. They are my loves! I love my family, my safe haven, my certainty of always love and I stick in my life. I have relatives in Rio, Minas, São Paulo and even outside Brazil. I think that's why I always love to travel! I also love to study! In addition to studying a lot of photography, I have already studied Computer Science and Journalism. [Petropolis Wedding Photographer]

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
