Hi, I am Gabi Alves. I've been a photographer for the past 15 years and living in Paris for the last 8 years. In 2004 I got my degree in Architecture and City Planning, but my passion for photography I discovered as soon as I entered university, in 1998. In the beginning, I divided my time between architectural projects and photographing a few general events. At the end of 2005 I went to Australia, where I lived for a year, and when I returned to Brasil I decided to listen to my heart and dedicate myself exclusively to photography.
In the beginning of 2009 I went to NY for a workshop, where I met the love of my life, now my husband. One year later I moved to Paris and began shooting friends who came to visit the city.
I then began broadcasting my business to couples, families and friends, who dreamed of doing a professional photo shoot of real moments in their lives, but with a casual and fun twist. Since then I have done so many amazing photo shoots around the city, and shot some fantastic destination weddings in beautiful places around Europe, like Portugal, Italy, England, Germany and France.
The objective of my work is to photograph couples, families and friends, whether they are celebrating a birthday, getting married or just making beautiful memories on a special trip, in the most spontaneous and natural manner possible. This way I can capture the essence and personal style of each person, making their trip unique and unforgettable, and their dreams magical and real. One of my favorite parts of the job is interacting with my clients, helping with all the details and the looks for the shoots, making this moment even more special than planned.
