I am Clara Sampaio, I photograph for passion and love my profession. Since I've changed architecture for wedding photography and family, I can say that I'm part of a select group of people who work with what they really like, and that makes all the difference.
The language of my work is guided by photojournalism and most of the time I photograph the moments as they actually happen. I seek the truth of each couple's feelings to tell their love story with pictures.
