My love for weddings is a result of the love for my family infused with a long lasting relationship with art and beauty – I started playing the piano when I was six and I have been singing since I can remember. Photography has always been a part of my family’s life. Speaking of family, I am married with the love of my life, my best friend, my worst critic and my biggest supporter, without whom I could not do what I love most: wedding photography! We have a wonderful daughter and a dog!
Weddings are a wonderful opportunity for families to meet and enjoy the day when a new family is born – it is a great privilege to be chosen to share such a magnificent event.
I hold an MBA from McGill University Class of 2004. Besides taking amazing photos, I also know how to treat a customer right.
Why am I doing wedding photography:
My goal is to bring tears in your eyes when you see your wedding photos in 10 years, in 30 years, forever!
Place of Birth:
I was born in Romania and moved to Canada in 2000
Photography has been a part of my life since I was a child...besides that, I love my family (that of course includes our Wolfie, our 120lb Bouvier des Flandres), art in general, weddings, beaches, spending time with friends and having fun!
reading, watching movies, listening to good music, traveling...yes, I do destination weddings.
Fun fact: my daughter saw her own photo (below) and said..."Wolfie is eating the baby".
