Madalena and Marcelo Cohen are a couple team from Brazil with creative minds and warm hearts based in Canada and traveling the world to shoot beautiful weddings.
We've met in a night club in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2005 and traveled to more than 20 countries together.
Pugs and vintage campers lovers, she loves tamarind and salted caramel but he loves pistachio and donuts. There is this fascination about weddings, they got married TWICE and they keep planing a third one.

 

MADALENA was born in Brazil, where she spent her time eating guava direct from the tree and swimming with alligators. After living in D.C., London and Florianópolis, she moved to Sao Paulo, where she met Marcelo and graduated in Tourism and finished her post grad in Photography.

After six years working as a photo editor, she decided to be a photographer and started shooting for travel magazines, then families and weddings.  She attended workshops in France, Los Angeles, Recife, New York, Vancouver and Sao Paulo.

“I found myself through my eyes and the world became an adventure! I feel so lucky to capture the best moments of your lives and I want to give you the best memories ever!” Madalena Leles Cohen.

"You have special eyes", once said Amy Arbus.

MARCELO was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. As a kid, he travelled the world! From Egypt to Switzerland, from Jamaica to Israel, he loves to travel. On his career, he owned a Brazilian Travel Agency for 14 years, then left more than 80 employees to follow his dream moving to Canada and working with his wife. His huge experience is now used to create and develop new arts and to keep the family's feet on the ground :)

He loves to talk about technology and co-op's lifestyle, and might be a little nerd.
