Your Vacation Photographer in Barcelona: Meet Maira

Meet Maira

My style is a mix of reportage and editorial. I love feeling a connection to my clients, discovering things in common and documenting them the way they really are. Sometimes I will give my clients a little more direction, but often I just let their story unfold in front of my lenses, and capture lots of natural, spontaneous, authentic moments. My wedding photography and film work has been featured by international wedding blogs such as Bridal Musings, Ever Ours and Those Lovely Days.

Three Things

  1. I am Brazilian and this really shows in my photos and in my personality. I love to showcase colors, happiness and the nature in my images. I am not only a photographer, I'm also a storyteller.
  2. I love to travel! As a child I lived between Brazil, Chile and France. I've been to more than 20 countries and I've lived in 5 different nations so far. I love imagining how it would be to live like the locals, so every year I plan a 3-week road trip in a different country.
  3. I watch a movie every night (sometimes I watch TV series too) and I've been keeping a list of every film I've seen since 2012!

Favourite Place to Shoot in Barcelona
Sagrada Familia and the Gothic Quarter

Languages Spoken
Portuguese, English and Swedish. (I used to speak fluent French and Spanish too, but those are a little bit rusty now!)
