About Us - Top Destination Wedding Photographer & Videographer. Luxury Wedding Photographer & Cinematography | Ricardo & Mary Pictures



Hi There!

We are Mariya & Ricardo!

We are a passionate couple, not only for each other, but also for the Film & Photography world. Ricardo is a Cinematographer; Mariya is a Professional Photographer. We were born into completely different worlds, but with their similarities. Ricardo has been a professional in the field for more than 10 years and he was the one who awakened Mariya’s passion for photography.

Together we created this project called Ricardo & Mary Pictures. 

P.S.: We are well aware that due to ethics, the woman’s name usually comes first, but for both of us, in this particular case, “Ricardo & Mary Pictures”, sounds better to us this way!

This is our story


Mariya Shupenya

Professional Photographer | Professional High End Photography Retoucher

I was born in Ukraine, in the city of Chernivtsi. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a special taste for the world of arts, music and aesthetics, but I ended up graduating in medicine. 

Coming to Portugal, I got to know a new world and new opportunities. 

I met my boyfriend Ricardo, who had already graduated in Cinema, and together we created our Film & Photography Production company Beyond Creative 20, together with this project Ricardo & Mary Pictures

I took several courses and training in the area of ​​​​Photography and Professional High End Photographic Retouch. 

We are currently fulfilling our dreams in our favorite area, supporting each other. Our goal is to grow together and promote love and the connection between people and the world itself.

Ricardo Silva

Cinematographer | Director | Photographer

I was born in Portugal, in the municipality of Caldas da Rainha. 

I studied in the multimedia area and graduated in cinema. 

I’ve always been interested in computerized effects for movies and decided to focus my training on this area. I quickly realized that this world was quite vast. 

It was always an area that captivated me, because I knew it could create new worlds and tell new stories! 

I already have more than 10 years of experience in photography, cinema, documentary recording, interviews, promotional and institutional films, music videos, weddings, among others. 

I had the opportunity to carry out work of national and international importance with some production companies and organizations, such as Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, where I gained a lot of experience and knowledge in the area.
