My name is Emmylie Cruz, I am originally from Boa Vista in Roraima, a small but beautiful city in the north of Brazil, above the Ecuador line - where it is sunny - almost too sunny! - most of the year. I’ve been living in Dublin for 7 years now.
"Why did you move to Ireland?” you might ask. The truth is - I don’t know. All I know is I fell in love with Ireland. Sure, sometimes the weather can be challenging. But I do love Ireland and I am lucky enough to call it home. I am also in love with an Irish man, my husband Richie, who is also a photographer - lucky me! - and we have a beautiful baby girl we call Ellie - the love of our lives.
I thought I was going to follow my mom’s steps and I hoped I would be a great judge some day so I graduated with a law degree. But the passion just wasn’t there. Photography was always part of my life - my dad loves it too! Although he was not a professional photographer he is very good at it and he always kept cameras around. I started learning everything that I could studying by myself & I loved it so much I started shooting - portraits, women, maternity & children.
I moved to Dublin 7 years ago to study more about photography & improve my skills as a photographer. During the course, my teacher Michael recommended me to a couple that was getting married & that’s how I got to fall in love with wedding photography!
I adore what I do. I am honoured to witness people's most special days & I love to be involved with weddings, capturing truly beautiful moments that families will treasure forever.
I also love travelling and I am lucky enough that my job takes me everywhere. I photograph all over Ireland and Brazil and I have also shot in places like Paris, Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, California, Miami, Scotland… so If you are planning a destination wedding or photoshoot I would love to hear all about it! Get in touch & let's work together!
