From the first email conversation to months after the wedding meeting for dinner, Madalena and Marcelo are an absolute delight to work with. They are true professionals that have a fun and creative flare. We adore all of our wedding pictures and would highly recommend their services.

Amazing Experience!

We had the best time working with SambaJoy for our wedding! Throughout the entire day, they were professional, organized, and upbeat. We just got back a preview of our wedding photos and they were absolutely beautiful! It was also great having 2 photographers - it made the shoots go by really quickly, without having to compromise on quality. Overall, we highly recommend booking SambaJoy!

SambaJoy were wonderful photographers. They were quick and efficient while still getting amazing shots. Many of our guest commented on how wonderfully they blended in while still doing a great job of taking all the candid and important shots. We are very happy that we choose them to capture our big day!

Mad谩 and Marcelo are the sweetest photographers to capture the moments of a wedding. They have sensible eyes for the moments, and are fun at the same time. They led us to have the best pictures!
All of the process they were careful to who we were, what were our likes and surroundings, and how we could incorporate it within the pictures. They suggested us do the first look (which is not a tradition in Brazil) and we loved it!

It's hard to find words to describe how amazing was Sambajoy's work on our wedding. Madalena flew all the way from Canada to Hawaii and she stayed with us. She helped us with everything with big heart and smiles.
I LOVE her style and personality, my husband and I are shy for photos but not with this photo duo, they will make you feel very comfortable and we are absolutely happy with the photos and all of our friends and families love them too.
We had a great time having a photographer around, we had a photo session on the day after the water and Madalena took photos of us even underwater!
I would like to highly recommend them to be your wedding photographers, they amazing people and photographers from Brazil, living in beautiful BC. They will definitely make your hearts happy and if I could I'd take them to all my trips and special moments :) Andrea Jakober

We were very happy with our Engagement and Wedding photos that Madalena took. All photos turned out great and unique. Iloved her style of photography because she was able to capture real perfect moments. Choose Sambajoy Photo & Art because they are the best!

Para quem quiser um registro aut锚ntico do casamento e com muita emo莽茫o tem de contratar o Sambajoy. O nome da empresa resume bem o espirito da Mad谩 e do Marcelo: alegria, descontra莽茫o e ginga. Registros 煤nicos de um momento 煤nico da vida de um casal.
