Marco Santos Marques


Art has always been the creative form of expression that motivated me.


I have been a photographer since 2004. In the first 7 years, I dedicated myself exclusively to natural landscape photography. The joy of being in nature and watching the light. It led me to deepen my knowledge of light. As a consequence, I taught several courses of photography of natural landscapes through the company Lightscapes in Nature, published the book "Os direitos da Terra" ("The rights of the earth"), I was fortunate to take part on several exhibitions and earn more than a dozen awards in several photographic contests.


In 2011, I created the company Marco Santos Marques - Photography and dedicated myself to photographing events. In 2014 my colleague Hélio Cristóvão invited me to join Foto de Sonho, where I'm until today. Undoubtedly all my past, especially shooting with natural light, influenced the approach I have in wedding photography. I like to reflect in each couple their essence and to present photographs that are true works of art; unique, surprising images, with strong graphical and compositional meaning.


I'm married with BFF from the high school times. I'm very dedicated to family and friends. I'm a positive and calm person who loves music, photography, cinema, traveling and living.
