Best of the best! We love how natural and spontaneous all the photos look.
How did you get into wedding photography?
I had a wedding florist business in 2010 and I was in need of some beautiful bouquet photos. So I bought a camera and I started to learn how to use it and in 2013 when I lost my other florist business, it was the most logical think to do for me.
Do you have a recent favorite photo that you have taken? Tell us how you took it and why you like it?
I don’t now if recent or not, but I have plenty of favorite photos. Especially the photos with the family, grandpa, grandma, all that ar really speacial for me.
What really gets you emotional when you’re shooting a wedding?
I think people get me emotional. I love people and the interaction between them. I like shooting people, with my camera, of course :). I love to see their emontions, the relation between them. I really enjoy that and those are the kind of things that make me emotional.
How do you put a couple at ease before and during their big day?
What is it about being a wedding photographer you love?
I love people and I get to be part of one of the most happiest days in theirs lifes.
What is it about being a wedding photographer that you don’t love so much?
I think the duration of weddings in Romania. Here a wedding is between 10 and 18 hours, it can be a long and exhuasting day.
If you could change one thing about the wedding industry what would it be?
The duration of Romanian weddings 🙂

I enjoy most of the day but I have to admit I do like a good party at the end.

Choose a wedding photographer that understands your needs, not the best one, the right one.
Why do you think couples choose you?
I think couples choose me because I am honest, i have a good vibe and good energy.
How do you relax when you’re not shooting weddings?
I run, read, dance, drink, party, travel. Not necesarily in this order. I just try to enjoy life.
What are you looking forward to and why?
To run an ultra marathon in South Africa.
