Brazil and Santa Catarina wedding photography by Willian Mariot

Hello, I'm Willian Mariot, I live in Urussanga, Santa Catarina. I define my work in photography through the client's vision, which searches for quality and feeling, with the intention of recording important moments, and perpetuating emotions and memories. I started my career unpretentiously in 2014, as I accepted the invitation to photograph nightly events. Over time, I sought improvement and improved techniques with the purpose of developing my own identity, thus born the brand Willian Mariot Photography. Always work with enthusiasm and interaction, with the goal of perpetuating feelings through the most varied records, providing enchantment and customer satisfaction, making them relive details of their events with nostalgic memories.

Minas Gerais Wedding Photographer, Wander Menezes

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. [Minas Gerais Wedding Photographer]

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding.

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
