Hi, I'm Marisa Martins, photographer, mother and family woman, passionate about my daughter, photography, light, Asia, music, cinema and the most beautiful beach in the world, mine, Santa Cruz! 
 
Family: This is the word that moves me, that has always moved me. People, couples, relationships, children, the families that are created, that expand, that grow right in front of my eyes... and, of course, all the love that passes through them, that they convey. That is precisely the magnet that links my passion for photography with my passion for families. 
 
How did I get here? Taking the most diverse paths that life has presented me with: from working as a fashion model, in my teenage years, to be a civil engineer and working in highway construction management until I was 32 years old, that's when I become a mom and discovered that I could pursue my great passion for photography as a real job. 
 
Over the course of the last 6 years, when I decided to work as full time professional photographer, I have found my voice and my confidence in myself as a family photographer while realizing just how much more I have to learn and this brought me back to my essence, to work with people. It was precisely here, in a family context, that I found my home, my personal and professional calling: family and wedding photography.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm based in Lisbon and don't charge a travel fee for weddings in 50 km distance.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I've been a professional photographer dor ten years and main photographer for about eight years.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Because real emotions is what drives me. I think my style it's documentary with an editorial touch.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Yes I have a studio about 30 min from Lisbon and also I like to do zoom meetings.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I'm a Civil Engineer turned Profession Photographer ten years ago. I took a mentorship with Kirsten Lewis and several workshops with great Portuguese Wedding Photographers.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I'm a mom and I love to take photographs of children, and a cat person who loves dogs. If a wedding has children I cannot be more happy about it.
