For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things.

To Him be the glory forever! Amen.
Romans 11:36

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

ABOUT US

We are Maria and Fábio, Portugal wedding photographers that share a love for one another and a great passion for photography.

We are Polish (Maria) and Brazilian (Fábio) but somehow found each other across continents, and settled as wife and husband in beautiful Portugal that we call our second home. Our own blessing in love made us passionate about documenting other people´s love stories and throughout the years we made of friendships with amazing couples across the Globe.
Their unique stories often inspire us, strengthen our relationship and often bring us closer to God.

What we love most about our craft is being the first-hand witnesses of beautiful love stories unfolding through deep emotions.

We ́ve been blessed to photograph destination weddings in Europe, Asia and Brazil. We take great care and dedication to each and every wedding we shoot, and our photography style is a fusion of portraiture, artistic creativity and photojournalism.

We ́ve been active members of prestigious wedding photography associations such as ISPWP, WPJA, and BOWP where our work had been awarded on various occasions. In 2015 we had the great honour to have been appointed as a judging panel for ISPWP FALL 2016 awards.

It´s always a joy to hear from couples, so feel free to drop us a line even if you had non-wedding photography related query.


Somos Maria (polaca) e Fábio (brasileiro), casal de fotógrafos de casamento que compartilham seu amor por Deus, familiares e amigos.

Por benção de Deus nos encontramos entre continentes, e viemos como marido e esposa a lindo Portugal que chamamos de nossa segunda casa. Nossa própria bênção no amor nos fez apaixonados por documentar histórias de amor de outros casais e ao longo dos anos fizemos varias amizades com pessoas incríveis de todo o mundo.
Suas histórias únicas muitas vezes nos inspiram, fortalecem o nosso relacionamento e nos aproximam de Deus.
O que mais amamos em nossa profissão é sermos testemunhas de primeira mão de belíssimas histórias de amor, e que será através de nossas lentes que estas histórias serão contadas por gerações.

Tivemos o imenso privilégio de fotografar pessoas maravilhosas em diversos lugares da Europa, China, e Brasil. Nos dedicamos a cada trabalho com todos nossos esforços e amor com o objetivo de contarmos histórias com imagens lindas, criativas e cheias de emoção.

Somos membros de prestigiadas associações de fotografia de casamento, como WPJA, ISPWP, BOWP, entre outros, onde o nosso trabalho tem sido reconhecido e premiado em várias ocasiões. Em 2015 tivemos a grande honra em termos sido nomeado como júris em um concurso semestral de ISPWP.

É sempre uma alegria ouvir Dos casais, então sintam-se à vontade para nos enviar uma mensagem, mesmo que vocês tenham uma questão não relacionada com serviços de fotografia de casamento.

KIND WORDS

Morgane & Dylan
Fabio et Maria sont deux personnes extraordinaires. Nous avons fait appel à eux pour notre mariage car nous avions eu un véritable coup de cœur pour leur travail et leurs photos. Et quand nous les avons rencontré pour la première fois, c’est un second coup de cœur que nous avons eu mais cette fois-ci pour eux et les personnes qu’ils sont. Ils sont d’une telle gentillesse et d’une telle bienveillance. Nous nous sommes attachés à eux et lors de notre mariage nos invités se sont également attachés à eux. Nous n’avons eu que des compliments sur eux. Quelle émotion nous avons eu en découvrant les photos de notre mariage, elles sont si belles et naturelles. Ils ont le don de faire passer les émotions à travers les photos et grâce à eux, nous garderons toujours un merveilleux souvenir de notre mariage car chaque fois que nous regardons nos photos, nous revivons notre mariage. Et le jour où nous renouvellerons nos vœux de mariage, ce sera avec eux de toute évidence. Mille mercis

Sara & Jesse
BEST. PHOTOGRAPHERS. EVER. Do yourself a favor and book these two for any special event. Their work is out of this world. Professional, honest, efficient and the sweetest couple you will ever meet! Infinity stars for these two magicians who capture everything absolutely beautifully. The whole experience was perfection. Thanks, Maria and Fabio


Shaunée & Rotimi

Azanha Studios are truly fantastic! Maria and Fábio combined warmth and great interpersonal skills with professionalism and pure talent! In short, they provide exemplary service and are exceedingly talented!
Words cannot fully explain how wonderful it was to work with Maria and Fábio. We were delighted, grateful and blessed we were to have Maria and Fábio as our wedding photographers! They are extremely talented, personable and helpful! We connected with them online and via calls because we were based in London.
Our engagement shoot was in Lisbon and sadly inclement weather did not permit us to stick with the planned photo shoot venue. Fábio and Maria reassured us and saved the day by changing their creative vision. We ended up with beautiful pictures shot in three distinct locations. Thanks for making us feel comfortable and encouraging us during the shoot!
When we returned to Lisbon 8 months later for our wedding, seeing Maria and Fábio felt like seeing old friends after a hiatus!
To Maria & Fábio: We cannot thank you enough for your help through the process. We feel lucky to have worked with both of you and have only the highest praise for your professionalism, warmth and skills! It means so much to us that you both have such loving spirits and share our faith. Thanks for making our guests feel comfortable in front of your cameras and for staying on to capture more of the atmosphere. Our guests were very impressed by your professionalism and dedication to capturing special moments!
God bless both of you and thank you for contributing to our happiness and joy!
We will definitely keep in touch!
Love,

Dominique & Ian

We recently got married on a gorgeous wine farm in Portugal and the venue recommended Fabio and Maria. How lucky we were to have two such wonderful and attentive photographers immortalising our special day. They made us feel so comfortable and truly captured the love and happiness we felt. They were unobtrusive and yet got all the shots! I would highly recommend them for their thorough and friendly service, viewing the end result just brought the day alive again..


Anjali & James

Fabio & Maria, we wanted to say a HUGE huge thank you for everything you did for us at our wedding last week! You really are the best photographers we could have asked for who we now consider as friends! You guys are beyond talented and so much fun to work with!! For people that started off disliking taking photos of ourselves we now can’t wait to see all of them!! You worked so seamlessly with the videographers and my makeup artist and you were never intrusive, knowing how to be discret whilst still capturing some beautiful images. As well as capturing emotion and detail you also had some great suggestions for some really fun photos and during both our wedding and engagement shoots we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Thank you also for staying so late at the wedding and partying with us!! We hope you had as much fun as we did.
You’re both a pleasure to be around and we honestly thank our lucky stars that we found you!! You really made our wedding special and we thank you so much.


Bruna & Ronan

Ronan: If you are planning anything that you need to capture the special moments….seriously look no further! These guys were simply the best decision we made for our wedding day. They literally fell trying to get the most perfect picture. We will never forget them as the images they captured are simply priceless. They were so nice to deal with and honestly the best decision we made for our big day! Forever in debt for capturing every moment of our big day you guys are true professionals!
Bruna: Best decision ever! I found Fabio by checking his previous work online and I was instantly impressed. After emailing them, I had no doubts – Maria and Fabio were very lovely and super patient with all our questions. During the day, they were again amazing, there was no details missed and the composition of photos were perfection. I would not change a thing! Ronan and I wanted very natural photos to capture the moment, and we barely noticed Maria and Fabio thought out the night and the end result was a lovely album with full of pricelles emotions of all the guests. They also helped us with a videographer, which made it all a smooth process. Thank you so much guys!!


Jocelyn & Kheed 

We find ourselves so lucky to have met Maria and Fabio! We truly love every picture they took for us. They really brought the emotions out and captured the moment. We also took their great advice to rent a beautiful antique boat and did two hours of shooting on it. It was amazing how many different angles and settings they were able to achieve in 3 hours! Besides, they are so kind and helpful, and even helped us on other things during our stay in Lisbon. They are such a loving and caring couple!


Esmeralda & Pedro

A melhor escolha! Ainda tenho as emoções á flor da pele. Muito profissionais! Transmitem paz e energia positiva em todo o processo!
Vale muito a pena. Muito Obrigada! Super recomendo!!


Saloni & Brian

My husband and I were very lucky to have come across Fabio and Maria Azanha. I got married in Portugal a few weeks ago and last year I started to look for potential photographers. I had been recommended a few but I came across Fabio and Maria entirely by chance and fell in love with their photography style. They had the perfect mix of action and what I like to call ‘posey’ photos. Neither my husband or I are used to being photographed so the idea of someone constantly snapping away at us was daunting but Maria and Fabio make a great husband and wife team and put us at ease straightaway. They captured the essence of our wedding perfectly.


Renata & Harry

Fabio and Maria were the dream photographers we didn’t even know existed! They completely understood us from day one, they were gracious and lovely on the day but never imposing, and best of all, they are amazingly talented. The moments that they captured are even more magical than we expected and it absolutely didn’t feel like a chore. They adjusted their work to what we wanted and in our case without long, boring photo shoots. Still, for every special moment they were there and we don’t have enough words to thank them for it. We absolutely recommend Fabio and Maria!


Rejany & Raul

Quando decidimos casar, decidimos que cada detalhe do nosso casamento tinha de ser escolhido por nós. Sabíamos que os fotógrafos teriam um grande papel no nosso casamento, uma vez que iam registar um dos momentos mais importantes da nossa vida. E todas as vezes que olhássemos para as nossas fotos, íamos nos lembrar do quão lindo aquele momento foi. Fizemos uma busca sobre os profissionais na área e todo o seu trabalho. Quando abrimos o site Fabio Azanha, ficamos tão encantados com o vosso trabalho que decidimos não procurar mais e começar a rezar para que vocês tivessem disponibilidade para trabalharem connosco num dia tão importante para nós. Fizemos três sessões com vocês e todas elas foram maravilhosas. As fotos são tão lindas e expressam toda a nossa felicidade, conseguiram captar e registar  todas as nossas emoções e sentimentos vividos naquele dia. A nossa felicidade, a dos nossos amigos e familiares estão tão bem ilustrada nessas lindas fotos.

Sem palavras para agradecer toda a vossa dedicação e profissionalismo e o lindo trabalho que fizeram.

O nosso muito obrigado por toda a dedicação.
