Rudney Novaes

Washington D.C. Photographer

Vila Velha, where I was born and raised, is a close-knit Brazilian beach town contoured and embraced by the Atlantic Ocean and rainforest. I was influenced by Vila Velha’s unique landscape, diversity, and culture as a fishing village. I grew up immersed in Brazil's natural beauty, which sparked my passion for photography so that I could capture its picturesque scenery.

Through photography, I found a way to revive my fondest childhood memories. I developed an organic yet refined style that catapulted my career to become a photojournalist for an international non-profit organisation in Africa. In Mozambique, I devoted my work to portray peoples’ daily struggles and their magnificent strength in facing hardship with creativity and courage. This experience influenced me to photograph people in their natural settings and created the photographer I am today.

Now I am based in Washington, DC, where I have the privilege of capturing people on one of the happiest days of their lives. Wedding photography has transformed the way I see people and tell their stories, and I cannot wait to be a part of yours!
