On the first day I met Beatriz and Lúcia, I could already tell this would be a very special wedding. Their friends contacted me, they wanted to offer them the wedding photography service as a wedding gift.
I met them and I loved them right away. They told me about their families, about their likes and dislikes and about their dreams. A few days later we did the engagement photoshoot and got to know a little more about each other. But I noticed that I would have a big challenge ahead, the girls didn't like to get photographed and were not comfortable in front of the camera.
They told me how they met and how their families wanted them to get married. Then, they told me they would get ready for the wedding on the same room, without looking at each other. I was so excited for this wedding! But I knew that on the big day, they would be always looking at each other.
From two brides getting ready next to each other, to a first look that left my eyes filled with tears. To a wedding that was completely outside the box, with a brunch included and where everybody was having lots of fun. From Beatriz forgetting to take her ID to the wedding, to Lúcia's sister speech that could not speak because she was so emotional. From the video that their friends made that left the whole room crying from laughing. And the end was the cherry of top of the cake: A water balloon war on a hot Summer afternoon that gathered kids and adults on a moment of pure fun. The day was filled with happiness and emotions.
Their wedding rings say "Every day", because that's what they promised to each other: To love and respect each other every day.

What they say:
Absolutely incredible! Rita is more than a photographer, she is the best ally we could wish for our wedding day. Super professional, having Rita with us was a game changer. She made us feel so comfortable. The photos turned out way better than expected, and we met someone great that helped us and supported in everything we needed.
