Frequently Asked Questions

Essentially, I don’t instruct or control, rather, I watch to catch the activities as they take place. I take pictures of your special occasion as it transpires in its natural form, recording genuine moments and forming a long-lasting chronicle of your day.

There are numerous methods to respond to this question. To avoid monotony, let me share a quote that is often attributed to John Ruskin, as a short answer:

“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s wore to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder…”

If you would like to chat over the phone, see each other in person or via Zoom, simply contact me and it will be easy to make an appointment.

Each photograph that you acquire will be thoroughly edited so that it looks like the shots on my website. This comprises of changing the colour and white balance, exposure adjustment, trimming the images, transforming to black and white (when suitable) and sharpening. Softening and retouching of the skin of you and your companion will be done all the time, however I don’t (as a standard) eliminate moles, freckles, scars, etc. as they are permanent features on your face. If you wish to have something like that taken away, please tell me ahead of the editing process.

I take photos in full-color and usually give couples a complete color gallery in addition to the black and white collection. Generally, I convert about 50-60% of the images to B&W in the later phases of post-production. Please let me know your preferences when you book or reach out to me if you need info about my editing or would like to view more of my work.

Generally, it takes 6 to 8 weeks after the wedding before the images are finished, but I try to provide them earlier if I am able.

As soon as your photos have been completed, a link to a secure website containing the final images from your wedding will be sent to you. This gallery allows you to view, save, and share the photos.

Having a second photographer on hand can offer several advantages. For one, having two photographers can ensure that special moments from the getting-ready phase, when you and your partner may be in different locations, are captured. A second shooter can also provide additional perspectives and ensure comprehensive coverage during key moments, such as the ceremony and other significant events throughout the day. For example, when you walk down the aisle, you may want photos of your smiling face, as well as the back of your attire, along with capturing your partner’s reaction. While I do my best to capture all of these elements when working solo, having a second shooter can help ensure that everything is captured. Finally, for weddings with over 100-150 guests, a second photographer is recommended to cover all guests and families, while the primary photographer focuses solely on the couple.

You’re in luck, as I am a fashion photographer and I know what produces great results. If you’ve scheduled a session with me, I’ll provide you with a comprehensive clothing guide and tips for the photo session.

I have a strong affection for same-sex weddings – most likely because I have been a vocal advocate for equal marriage rights for quite some time.


Definitely. I encourage you to bring your furry, feathery, or scaly friend along to every session… Whether you have a bird, snake, cat, dog, or chinchilla, I would love to meet them. I suggest bringing along a friend to tend to your dog once we finish photographing the couple.

I am passionate about capturing the special moments of small weddings and elopements and I would be delighted to offer partial day coverage. Please contact me to talk about your plans, and together we can figure out what amount of coverage will work best.

My photography involves a lot of elements that I have to consider while shooting a wedding. As I generally take a documentary approach, there is no set pattern to the way I work. I am always looking for things that will illustrate the day in my own, distinctive way and I take them within the limits of the available time, space and light. I do not have a particular formula or a prepared list of pictures that I take, nor do I take a fixed number of images for any particular scene or person. However, before the wedding, we will go over specific shots and if you want something specific, I will be pleased to include it in my notes so I can photograph it.

If you have been graced with an invitation to a friend’s wedding, don’t be the guest who steals the limelight with your outfit. Keep in mind, it is their special day and take a moment to consider if it is appropriate to wear that eye-catching neon pink dress and towering five-inch heels that you recently purchased.

While you may look fantastic in that outfit, you don’t want to be the standout person in every group photo of guests. It’s important to keep the focus on the couple and not draw attention away from them on their big day.

Yes, we do.

I usually reserve around 10 to 20 minutes for couples during the initial 15 minutes of their welcome drinks. My portraits are a result of a pleasant stroll through a picturesque setting. I don’t ask couples to pose. Instead, I want the photographs to match well with the natural shots. You can find samples of the sort of couple photos I strive to capture in my portfolio. During the summer, I might take couples for a brief stroll at the golden hour, the magical light moments before the sun goes down.

I am willing to include a few of your pictures in my portfolio. If this is something you are not comfortable with, please let me know at the time of booking.

I don’t go through the photos that I’ve shot, choose the top 500 and a call it a day, I provide you with every single photo that I take that is worth delivering (every photo that is well exposed, non-duplicate and, of course, flattering). I cull on camera throughout the day, and while there are always a few photos that (for one reason or another) don’t make the cut once I see them full size on the computer, I don’t withhold photos for no reason.

Don’t ever overlook the importance of culling, it’s one of your wedding photographer’s most important jobs.

As a photographer based in Bucharest, I am available for both local and international assignments. I am always open to traveling to capture the special moments and memories of my clients. Whether it be a destination wedding, or a family photoshoot in a new location, I am ready and willing to travel to make your vision a reality.

I specialize in offering photography services for weddings and elopements, as well as individual and couples portraits, engagement photo shoots, family portraits, maternity, and more.

I understand that being in front of a camera can sometimes feel uncomfortable, and I guess you don’t have any professional modeling experience on your resume. But don’t worry, you don’t need it to get great photos! I don’t like the term “posing” because it often conjures images of third-grade photos with your hands framing your face as you smile at the camera.

However, I’ll guide you into comfortable and natural positions that will translate into stunning photos. I encourage you to interact with your partner or family members and have fun. Feel free to dance, hug, twirl, and I’ll even bring some beer or wine, if requested, to help you relax and loosen up. My objective is for you to have a great time, connect with your loved ones, and end up with amazing photos.

The pictures in your gallery will be edited to enhance lighting, contrast, clarity, and color – a standard practice for digital photographers. For this reason, I won’t be providing the raw, unedited images.

Definitely not! I am of the strong conviction that your photos should remain unmarked.

Upon delivery, you will have full rights to use the photographs as you please. I request that in the case of any business using my work for public or marketing purposes, proper credit is given to me by name.

I try to store files indefinitely, but do not guarantee the storage of images once the final gallery is delivered. I have multiple hard drives and multiple backups. I do ask that when you download your gallery, you back up your files on the off chance something happens to mine. Once the final gallery is delivered and you have downloaded it, I remove it from my site. If you need to get back into it at any time, that is not a problem at all.

I would love to be able to accommodate every budget, but I understand that not everyone is able to invest in photography. On occasion, I may be able to offer services within a specified budget if my schedule allows for it. If this applies to you, please reach out to me so we can discuss it further. I’m usually more open to working within a budget on weekdays, especially during Monday to Thursday mornings and December to February weddings. However, this does not apply to weekend events.

To help you look and feel your best on your wedding day, it’s best to wrap up all of your planning and decision-making a week before the event. The final days before the ceremony can be incredibly stressful and tiring for couples, potentially affecting both your appearance and mood on the big day, which can then impact your wedding photos. By completing tasks earlier in the week, you’ll have time to relax and fully enjoy the lead up to your wedding.

The project that will bring me the most happiness next.
