A Portuguese term often described as "the love that remains" , a nostalgic and Melancholic longing of a person, place or moment in time.



It's that feeling of nostalgia you get when you dust off a box of old family photos or find an old mixed cd your best friend made you the summer of 04'...

Let me handle the rest.
I'm pretty good at it.

about me

Hey! I'm Andreia, a Portland, Oregon based wedding photographer.

Ryan & Diana

Andreia Claro is amazing! My (now) wife and I spent a lot of time going back and forth about a ton of decisions for our wedding but after she showed me Andreia's Instagram account, hiring her as our photographer was the quickest, easiest decision we made. We hired her based on the quality of her photography alone but after working with her I now understand that her brilliance as a photographer isn't just her technical skill, but also how personable she is. I really don't like being photographed but she found ways to make me feel really comfortable by being incredibly warm and fun to work with. She gets great photographs not just because she has real technical skill with a camera but also because of who she is behind the camera. She really became a wonderful part of our wedding. I should add that we booked her before Covid hit and we had to change all of our wedding plans throughout the year but Andreia totally stuck with us through our shifting plans and was a big part of what made our revised, tiny, socially distant wedding feel like a true celebration. I give her my very honest, highest recommendation.

Sam & Lauren

Andreia's warm spirit, sense of humor, and ability to capture moments made my engagement session and wedding day photos all the more special. I do not particularly enjoy having my photo taken, but Andreia easily made my husband and I loosen up and feel super comfortable in front of the camera. She helped us every step of the way in making sure we got all the photos we wanted, had lots of ideas/suggestions, and had a good balance of candid and planned photos to balance out our albums. She's amazing and I highly recommend her!!

Mercedes & Lucas

Andreia is just the best! She was the photographer for our wedding day and engagement photos and she did an awesome job at making us two goofballs look and feel like freaking MODELS. 

Saleh & Danielle

The day flew by but Andreia was there to capture all the moments we wanted to look back on. Making the choice to have Andreia with us on our wedding day was crucial to the day going smoothly as she knows the ropes and any anxiety of missing out melted away because I knew she was there to get those memories. The photos came out perfect and everyone who saw them had so many nice things to say. Andreia was a phenomenal choice for mine and my (now) husband's wedding. I did a lot of searching on Instagram/knot etc. to find someone who was talented, but more importantly, someone personable and down to earth. It was important to us to support a small business and really get that one on one attention needed when planning a wedding/elopement/engagement session. Andreia helped us create a time line, list our must have photos and always promptly answered any questions we had leading up to the ceremony. Day of, she was everything you'd want in a photographer, on-time, she set a great tone, she took initiative to get all the detail photos and knew all the tricks to getting my dress to look just right. My husband felt at ease in front of the camera and so did I. The photo ideas she had were original and made our photos unique to us and our surroundings. We recommend Andreia for your event and will for sure hire her again in the future.
