About Renata

“Each photo shoot is a hunt to find those brilliant moments in my subjects and capture them forever on film”

My name is Renata Amazonas and I’m a Brazilian photographer living and working in beautiful San Diego, CA.

I am lucky to do what I love for a living and strive to let my art reflect my passion. Through photography I have found my way to express my creativity and share it with the world. My goal is to create photo documentaries of the important events in my clients’ lives, and I have been truly blessed in all the connections and relationships I’ve created over my career. It’s beautiful to share these moments with my clients, from their engagement pictures to their kids’ birthday parties!

The best part of my job is exploring different ideas and locations, interacting with people from different cultures and backgrounds, and creating special stories that will last forever through my images.

I like to keep my sessions fun and casual. It’s important to me to get to know my clients’ personalities and style so that together we create images that truly represent who they are. I love color and texture, layers and accessories, and I give a special attention to details. I’m always happy to give advice on what to wear for a session, pinpoint the perfect location for what you have in mind, and guide you through the photography process in front of the camera to keep your photos looking as natural as possible.

Being part of a couple’s wedding day is a huge honor for me, and I never forget it! I know how many dreams and long days of preparation are put into this event to make it unforgettable and, through my flexible and creative style, I’ll capture each detail so you can cherish that celebration forever.

I’m always open to adventure, and am available for international events! Words can’t describe my enthusiasm for exploring different part of the world with my camera in hand. Here on my website you can find examples of photos from my trips thus far. I especially cherish those photos documenting moments I’ve shared with people in their everyday lives.

Thanks for trusting my art and style, and giving me the opportunity to do what I love the most. I hope we can start our story together soon!
