Tell us a little about yourself??

I lived for 25 years in a small industrial city near the Parang Mountains, in Petrosani, Hunedoara. After that I’ve moved to Bucharest and I started working in the advertising industry. In 2007, I started my own business, a small design & photography boutique agency.

Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?

This was my first Jewish wedding and I didn't know what to expect. But everything was perfect. A very different wedding, starting with the bride who was also the make-up artist, then a very long photo session and, finally finishing with a wild wedding reception. After all I can tell you this was my dream wedding so far.

How did you get into wedding photography?

I started as a commercial photographer, but I really liked working with people and so the transition to wedding photography seemed natural.

Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?

I really don't know if I'm successful or not. Maybe this is the key. You must learn by trial and error, the hard way, to see what works and what doesn’t. This way, every year your results will become better and better. About mistakes, maybe, my fault is that I invest too much money in the equipment, instead of training. I’ve taken the long path, the one that I learn by myself, but I believe that in this way you become a better photographer.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?

I recommend to all my clients to look for a photographer that have the style they like and after that to see if they really like the photographer as a person. If it's a good chemistry between people, than the photos will be astonishing. This is the most important thing, not the price tag and the packages.

How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?

The best advertising for me is by talking directly to people and, also, there is a wedding show I attend once a year.

Why do you think people hire you?

I believe people hire me because I'm an open-minded person. I tell them from the start what are my expectations and they can see all the materials that I can offer.

What equipment do you have for a typical wedding day?

My favourite set is Canon 5D Mark III, 35 mm, 85 mm and 135 mm lens, but I also use a wide angle zoom.

What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.

The most challenging thing, especially in Romania, is that the wedding last very long. For example, here a wedding last around 15 to 20 hours.

Do you have an approach to a wedding?

I have my own personal style. I really like the photojournalism style for the preparation, church and reception, but in the photo session I use the fashion style approach.

Who or what inspires you?

I don't look at the work of a specific photographer and my inspiration comes from movies, fashion magazines, photography websites and so on.

Best & Worst marketing idea so far?

The best marketing is idea is by the face-to-face discussion, as I told it before and the worse, I think is Google AdWords.

If you weren't a photographer, what would you be?

This a tough question. Maybe a full time graphic designer or a driver, because I enjoy driving my car.

My future goals would be to achieve 20-30 wedding a year, more destination weddings and to develop my photo studio for maternity and newborn photography.

What do you think is key to being a successful wedding photographer?

The key is to never stop learning, to improve your technical skills, your creativity, to be an open-minded person and to really like working with people.
