"The photograph embraces the moment with the promise of offering it again."
Quite a responsibility, if you ask me. This is one of my loves, along with my wife, kids, baking bread, raising chili peppers and so on. Wedding Photography has offered me an opportunity to incorporate my passion for “painting with light” while blending in as part of your wedding day capturing the little candid moments as well as the major events. I want to incorporate the traditional as well as the trendy and dramatic. I want you to see the love you have for each other as well as your family and friends blended with your style and mine captured forever in breathtaking images. It is my duty to tell the story of what makes your wedding unique. What truly makes your wedding photos unique is YOU.
Personally I’m almost an "empty nester". I live rather close to our studio, in beautiful Wyoming, where I love super long walks, bike rides or a good run to the point of complete exhaustion. I’m an avid swimmer, tech head and rather enthusiastic, though ungifted singer. Don’t ask; you'll regret it! I was born in Romania and have lived in several countries and speak 5 languages. I was a chef, as well as every other job you could ever imagine in the hospitality industry quite a few years before pursuing photography full time. I decided that I’d rather be married to my wonderful, supportive wife! I hope to have never taken my best photo or cook the same dish twice. I’m fascinated by all cultures and I naturally learn as much as I can about them through food, of course. I’ve made well over a thousand Indian dishes in particular, from Kerala to Jammu to Assam and know that I’ve only scratched the surface of the subcontinental art of food, which in itself is but a microcosm. That’s very much as I feel toward my ever evolving love of photography and doing my very best to make people look fantastic in front of my lens, each and every time. I love wine but really enjoy a nice bottle of Chianti.
