Hi friend!

Thank you for coming here to get to know a little more about us, our story and life.

Andrezza was born and raised in the sunniest city of Brazil, Natal and never thought that one day photography would take her so far from home. For her photography is about emotions, finding a way to express how she  feels and sees the world. Her favorite subjects cycle through seascapes, portraits, still life and nature—where moods, expressions, colors and atmospheres can be found. Among all of them  portraits  has a special meaning to her.  She likes to be friends of  their clients, talk, laugh, connect  and share. "To be able to capture the essence of somebody's soul is something so particular, private.It makes me feel so grateful for them letting me in. It fascinates me and feel my heart with joy!"

Fighting against Multiple Sclerosis since her early 20's has opened her eyes to see that it's not about the quantity of big moments that you dream to live that count, but to value the quality of the little ones. Having MS didn't stop her to cross the ocean to live and experience a new culture and adapt to a new country.

"Photography is my passion, it moves me and inspires me everyday. Photography was the bridge that made me meet Matt, my husband, my better half and brought me here in Virginia Beach"

Matt was born in Key West, FL, but has called Virginia Beach, VA his home most of his life. Matt has always had a talent and passion for art, and has exhibited his acrylic seascapes and surf art for many years. And his art background has influenced his photography in his use of light, composition and techniques. Matt's favorite subjects center around the ocean, from waves to surfing to wildlife. But no matter the subject, Matt is always on the search for the best light. Andrezza and Matt met because of that mutual love of photography. They noticed each others work through a photo sharing website and became contacts. Soon they started emailing each other. Then Matt decided to take a chance and traveled to Brazil to meet her. From the first moment that they met it was like they had known each other their whole lives. After a couple of years of keeping up a very long distance relationship, Andrezza finally moved to the United States and they got married and live in Virginia Beach. They are always thinking of reasons to go out and shoot something. Now with opportunities to be creative together and explore new perspectives, it's even more uplifting.
