ABOUT VANESSA & IVO

This is our story

We are Vanessa and Ivo. We’re made of sun, sea and love. We’ve started making wedding films in 2012, and our style has been changing and getting mature. We’re looking for the romance and intimacy. We add some beautiful images, the proper music and we have your wedding film.

We have a dog (Kira!) and two (!) cats – Rorschach and Baunilha. We listen to a lots of music and we watch lots of movies (specially those that go well with popcorns). Vanessa worked in a theater company, Ivo worked in cinema. We love cooking together and spend our evening in the sofa. Vanessa is organized, Ivo not so organized.

Vanessa da Silva

Vanessa was born in Caracas, Venezuela, where she spent some of her childhood. That is why she’s the exotic half of Vanessa & Ivo.

Later, already in Portugal, she pursued her studies in Communication, and worked for some time in a Theater production company – that also makes her the dramatic half of Vanessa & Ivo.

Vanessa loves the beach, eating Ivo’s food, spending time laying on the couch while watching Hallmark Christmas movies, and occasionally feels like a Disney princess when she’s surrounded by her dog Kira, her cat Rorschach and her other cat Baunilha.

Ivo Silva

Born and raised in Guimarães, Portugal, where he now lives with Vanessa since 2015, Ivo is definitely the tech oriented half of the team, always looking for new gadgets to add to the ever growing arsenal.

Has a Film degree in Editing and Sound Design and a masters in Directing, and worked in a couple of agencies and production companies before discovering wedding films in 2012.

Loves sci-fi, video games, music, food (both making and eating it…) and lots of other random stuff. Unfortunately for Vanessa, Ivo is kind-of a morning person and can be very optimistic.

On your big day, our goal is to capture, in a simple way, the essence of what happened. We’re not looking for poses or staging. We won’t upset your guests with strong lights. We’ll try to be discreet and mix with your guests. Most of the time we have just one camera on our hands. You can find us picking an appetizer, easily or dancing during the party. And we always eat cake! 

The wedding day is a big party and we want you to have fun. That’s why we ask for little of your time so we can some beautiful images of yours. We want you to have fun – talk, laugh, eat, drink and dance. We honestly believe that’s what makes our films unique.
