WHO they are: Madalena and Marcelo Cohen. Brazilian-born, Canada-based lovers and business partners, forever enamored with love.
WHAT they do: Photograph amazing destination weddings from all over the world.
WHY we love them (and why you should too!): We adore Madalena and Marcelo for their color-saturated images, ability to see the beauty in what might have been an unnoticed moment, and willingness to hop on a jet plane to anywhere together!
We've been following the work of this husband and wife team from Canada for ages now (just check out their hilarious insta stories - we've grown quite fond of their pup Bacon). Their work is timeless but fun, and has this well travelled team dying to follow them abroad on their next big adventure! After flipping through the images on their website for what seemed like hours, we finally got a chance to sit down with this dynamic duo and ask them to answer a few spontaneous questions about each other. We love it when couples work together, so the teamwork involved in answering these questions highlighted what we love best about this couple - their flexibility and spontenaity!
Madalena, what do you remember most about your first date with Marcelo?
We've met in a nightclub in Sao Paulo, Brazil, I remember loud electronic music and I felt he was different, he was special, and somehow I could see it right away!
Marcelo, what does Madalena contribute to your brand? How is the team incomplete without her?
She has a unique way to see the world and transmit it to the world through images. Without her, there is no soul! She is fun, creative and powerful!
Madalena, what always makes Marcelo laugh?
The movie Airplane, he laughs the whole time and I just don't get it!
Marcelo, what is Madalena's favorite part of weddings?
We both find the entire process very interesting. From finding someone to spend life together is a little miracle, then a couple with zero event experience need to create a loving and exciting experience for friends and families and dedicate so much time on this. When the couple sees each other for the first time, it's magical!
Madalena, where would you love to travel with Marcelo someday?
I'd love to take Marcelo to South of France at summertime.
