I love to laugh and enjoy life to its fullest. I wear many hats (literally and figuratively), but to the core, I'm a mom, photographer, artist, traveler and loyal friend. My family is everything to me.
I absolutely love what I do. I am a collector of moments as they come. My clients crave refreshing results.
To me, It’s not just about taking the best photos—it’s also about how I make the clients feel. This is an experience from the first initial connection to the final deliverables; it all must be consistent and flawless. It’s important to me that each couple is able to fully enjoy their wedding day, live fully in the moment and know I am there for them each step of the way ; the more we talk through the details and the desires of the couple, the more I am able to capture the wedding fluidly.
In addition to being beautiful, I want my work to have heart and style without sacrificing substance or genuine moments. I strive to create beautiful, honest and timeless images, and deliver a mix of finely curated details as well as real, joyful, unexpected moments. I want my photos to resonate 50 years from now. I've honed an ability to work in any environment and location—from an outdoor wedding in a sudden rainstorm, to a couple on the top of a snowy mountain, and everything in between. No matter the location or circumstance, I'm in-tune with how to best capture portraits and details that feel authentic and bring out the unique beauty and personality of each couple. My work is captured with an editorial eye.
What my father left behind is timeless. He passed away too young and unfortunately I didn’t get to know him as an adult. Those black and white photographs printed on crinkled edge paper are better than any image that I could ever create. Because they are personal to me, they are my heirloom, they will be my son’s and hopefully passed down even further.
That’s how I learned that every moment I’m faced with is meaningful and it needs to be kept forever. It’s not only YOUR moment, sooner or later it becomes your loved ones’.
Growing up, I’ve always been obsessed with the love mom and dad shared. There is one photo that stands out to me - still the first thing you see when you open the pretty little red box of old family photos. It’s a picture of my parents hugging. It is as if my handsome dad just walked into the room, swayed my mom into a dance and brought her into his arms. She was leaning into him with her eyes closed, smiling, with one arm wrapped around her, their hands interlocking, and holding on to her with the other, looking down protectively. That look he had on his face was pure love. And she felt it!
Every so often I pull out that box. When my mom visits, she brings more photographs. When my son asks questions about what mommy was like when she was a kid, the photos go to work, each print unveiling a new story. When I go back home to Bucharest and the family gets together on Sundays, it’s the perfect time to reminisce about the past, and I feel like my dad is there with us.
We are a team of seasoned photographers whose dream is to keep the sweetness of weddings going and make the whole experience, from booking the date to receiving the fully-edited gallery, simple and memorable, while adding our own fresh lemon twist.
As your photographers, we are honored and excited to be part of your wedding. Our promise to you is making you feel like naturals in front of the camera and lots of guidance (if needed). We aim to capture and document each beautiful story through a completely stress-free experience, leaving you with an heirloom collection of well curated images in form of digital and printed premium flush-mount albums, because your special day is personal to us, and we plan on photographing it as we would want our own photographed.
Our work has been published in many print and online wedding blogs - Seattle Bride, The Knot, Wedding Wire Blog, Joy Wed, The Big Fat Indian Wedding, The Inspired Bride & more.
Jared joined the team at the beginning of the 2016 wedding season with an open heart, bringing in lots of knowledge and experience. His talent, personable nature and sense of humor always brings back amazing feedback from couples we worked with.
With a background in portraiture, event photography and the Seattle fashion scene, Jared ventured into weddings. His enthusiasm shows through in his work. He enjoys the challenge of a fast-paced wedding day and handles difficult situations with ease. Jared's favorite thing about photographing weddings (aside from cake) is doing what he loves, having a VIP front-row seat to each couple's special day, and knowing he’s helping create memories that will last for generations.
This past year, we did video greetings, had a photo-booth set up, did 'all day' time-lapses, special effect smoke bombs and so much more - all Jared's innovative ideas to WOW our couples and show our appreciation. Together we offer our clients a unique experience and work hard to achieve that year after year.
I LOVE SUN-KISSED PORTRAITS, WITT AND I BELIEVE LAUGHTER IS INDEED THE CURE FOR ALL.

In addition to being the love of my life, Max joined the team at the beginning of the 2019 season. An Alabama original, Max left the South behind temporarily taking on a new job in the Pacific Northwest. He discovered a love for Seattle, which at first he thought was too dark and rainy compared to the Southern warm weather, but eventually embracing his passion for photography and videography Coast to Coast. We're now documenting destination weddings on the Gulf Coast and having a blast!
Over the last couple years, his exploration into both fields ultimately turned this into a true endeavor. Max has set new standards for our business and became an amazing addition to our team.
