Weddings can and should be fun

If you’re under impression that Romanian weddings are more traditional, conservative and, well, boring, you’re wrong. Weddings can be fun, spontaneous, simple yet classy. This weekend’s wedding was a strong proof of that. Magdalena and Damian had a wonderful day with their guests. The godparents were both funny and stilish. I’ve created images with lots of emotions, funny guests, wonderful details, strong bonds between people. You’ll see these images soon. In the meantime, enjoy a few images from the photo session. Daca esti de parere ca nuntile romanesti sunt mai traditionale, conservatoare si, intr-un fel, plictisitoare, nu poti fi mai …

Am descoperit intamplator aceasta sesiune din 2010, din care va voi arata doar cateva imagini. Baietelul acesta a fost incantator. Sesiunea s-a intamplat dis-de-dimineata, nu erau multi oameni prin preajma. S-a jucat, a descoperit mereu lucruri noi, incantat de mici detalii pe care noi, oamenii mari, nu le mai sesizam. Centrul Vechi poate fi scena unei sesiuni de fotografie cu cei mici, oricat de ciudat pare. E important mereu sa oferi copiilor mici amanunte la care sa fie atenti, astfel poti surprinde cu usurinta expresii frumoase si diferite.

Engagement sessions are hot / Sesiunile inainte de nunta sunt extraordinare

I urge every bride and groom to have this kind of session. It’s all about understanding each other, learning to work together so that, during the wedding day, everything will run smoothly. Usually the boys are more afraid of the camera and this wonderful groom had the same problem. But I think we’ve managed to get over the strange feelings about being photographed. What do you think? Incerc sa conving fiecare cuplu de miri ca avem nevoie de sesiunea de dinainte de nunta. Trebuie sa aflam mai multe unii despre altii, sa invatam sa ‘lucram’ impreuna, pentru ca in ziua …

10 bebe care vor avea fotografii minunate

In urma invitatiei lansate catre mamici, am primit aproximativ 60 de raspunsuri si sunt foarte incantat ca voi cunoaste 10 bebe (sau mai multi in cazul gemenilor) fantastici, lipsiti de inhibitii, cu ochii mari si fara prejudecati. Ce poate fi mai minunat pentru un fotograf decat sa ofere parintilor bucuria unor amintiri de calitate. Am fotografiat cateva familii de-a lungul a mai bine de 5 ani, fiind martor uneori extrem de apropiat al nasterii si dezvoltarii copiilor lor. Si mereu bucuria mea a fost maxima. Mariuca (fetita mea dulce din fotografia de mai sus) nu are prea multe fotografii (stii …

Free studio session for 10 bebe | 10 sesiuni foto de bebe gratuite

Conditions? Just if you want it. Why? Because it’s fun and spring brings along beautiful projects. Maybe because this is the way to take photos of my darling Mariuca, otherwise I will postpone them forever. How? You need to have your own bebe 🙂 (less than 1 year old), you must love beautiful images and you should take care of all the details (little hats, baskets, blankets and so on). And you must see this opportunity as fun and not worry about your bebe being too small, fragile or otherwise. If you want it, go to my  facebook profile and …

Nu poti sa crezi / fotografie botez

Nu-ti poti da seama cat de frumosi sunt copiii decat atunci cand vezi atat de multi, asa cum vad eu. Nu exista un ‘multumesc’ mai puternic decat ochii aia larg deschisi care invata din orice miscare, umbra sau sunet. Acest botez a fost cu atat mai important pentru mine cu cat Radu, taticul, este un vechi prieten pe care nu il mai vazusem de cativa ani. Alb-negru pentru copii? De ce nu! Sentimentele tind sa fie mai usor de comunicat atunci cand culoarea nu atrage atentia. O fotografie botez trebuie sa vorbeasca in primul rand despre sentimente, intimitatea momentului, prieteni …

From now on that’s how we album

So let me tell you something: finally gorgeous albums. For several years I tried to find albums that would last you a lifetime and look good too. The only option was canvas albums, allowing me to offer you something cool and personal (instead of writing your name on the cover, like you don’t know your name). I absolutely love the Stripes and Fancy albums, stylish choises directly from one of the best in business (Spanish designer). The leather choices are wonderful too, a white-cream version with square image inset and a dark-grey one. Don’t you love them too? In sfarsit …

One laugh after another

Crazy times call for crazy people. Put together three photographers and one lovely lady and you’ve got a wonderful chance to do something memorable. Ioana, Claudiu, Cristian and Daniel. Plus our supporter for the day, photosetup, with a wonderful piece of equipment, Photoflex Triton (more on that on WeddingStaff). We’ve got no target but to try the new flash system and enjoy ourselves on the streets of Old City Bucharest. Hot day, no pressure, Ioana laughing and, after it was finished, we wanted for more. Many more months later here are some of the images. Why? Call it too many things …

There’s a thrill sometimes

If you are a wedding photographer you know what I mean. People are fascinating. And, from time to time, this happens to mean ‘in a good way’. Ok, it happens a lot. This couple was so close, friendly, loose, happy… And all this despite recent drama in the family. I welcome this attitude towards the wedding day, it’s the only way to do it. Please enjoy the images as much as I did enjoy to meet these wonderful people. Daca esti fotograf de nunta stii deja la ce ma refer. Oamenii pot fi de-a dreptul fascinanti, adesea intr-un mod placut. …

New site in town!

I know you’re expecting many stories here. It’s February 2013, my girls are traveling to Germany for a big BIO fair and I’m home alone for 10 days. My plans for these 10 days are the following: finish-up danielphotography new site / blog; prepare for WeddingStaff 1 year anniversary (friends, images, drinks and many others); re-paint Mariuca’s room and maybe the living room (5 years old kids tend to treat walls as canvas, which is nice but need touch-ups from time to time); attend 1 day photo seminar; prepare food for myself and read a great book about seeing things …

In the wild

Imagine 5 degrees Celsius and one small red dress suitable for summer days. Now that you understand our dilema, watch the results. Imagineaza-ti 5 grade celsius si o rochita subtirica si rosie, potrivita pentru zilele de vara. Acum poti intelege dificultatile pe care le-am avut. A fi fotograf de nunta inseamna sa te orientezi foarte rapid, in orice mediu, pentru a realiza maxim din realitatea inconjuratoare. Sa speculezi chiar si un camp plin de buruieni iti aduce bucuria realizarii unor fotografii de fiecare data unice.

From abroad

They came from France back to Romania to get married. They brought beautiful friends along and they had a blast. Aura and Catalin – two very warm and kind friends – our photographic experience was smooth. We worked together beautifully, despite their fears in front of the camera. Thank you both for your trust. I like your images a lot and I hope we will see each other soon. Au venit din Franta pentru a se casatori. Impreuna cu ei au venit prieteni dragi. Aura si Catalin – doi oameni ‘caldurosi’ – experienta mea (din postura de fotograf de nunta) …
