Sou Clara Sampaio, fotografo por paixão e amor a minha profissão. Desde que troquei a arquitetura pela fotografia de casamento e família, posso dizer que faço parte de um grupo seleto de pessoas que trabalha com o que realmente gosta, e isso faz toda diferença.
A linguagem do meu trabalho é norteada pelo fotojornalismo e na maior parte do tempo fotografo os momentos como eles realmente acontecem. Busco a verdade dos sentimentos de cada casal para contar com imagens a sua história de amor.

Beautiful warm light aides this composition.
Such ambience is worthy of photographic idolatry. But more important to me is the recognition of the skill required to properly balance an exposure in a scene like this. Certainly I’m aware that it is no Olympian feat but, then again, are we are of that? Each of us have faced similar scenes and circumstances where we failed. But it is the technically skilled exposure that has preserved the moment, or should I write, the mood of the moment. But, of course, that also requires all the other fundamentals of composition and lens choice. But, strangely, our goal as photojurnalists/pro photographers is to create an image where we, our efforts behind the lens, are seldom noticed. Think it over as a new benchmark to achieve.
Use of a low angle to capture this hilarious moment of intertwining limbs makes for a winning image.
An officiate acts as chaperone during a passionate kiss. This photo is riddled with humor and a beautiful choice of selective focus helps emphasize the charming moment.
