Tanya & Marius :: Wedding

You'll remember this couple from their engagement session a few weeks back. Tanya & Marius, you guys know how to put on a show. What a GRAND wedding! Marius is a photographer himself and working for other photographers is VERY cool. Reason being, they already have an appreciation for what we do. They gave us a generous amount of time to shoot group shots. (take note brides, these spectacular group formals are a result of being given a good cushion on time to shoot multiple poses.) The ideas just kept coming, I love it. Marius my friend, YOU have a beautiful wife. Inside and out. :)

Their wedding was in traditional Romanian style. It reminded me a lot of how Catholic services move. Lots of ceremony and tradition. This was my first real contact with Romanians and they were very VERY sweet people. Very kind and thoughtful of us. The food was REALLY good as well. Think Mediterranean.

My buddy Tony Hoffer came out all the way from Philly to shoot this one with me. Tony, I want to openly say you taught me bucket loads over that weekend. Not only a VERY talented photographer but a genuinely nice guy as well. I see a few more shoots in the near future with him :) He was NOT a second shooter for me. This wedding basically had 2 first shooters. You need to go check out his take on the day I almost don't want to post his site, it's that good: Hoffer Photography Blog

Thanks folks, enjoy the show.

First of Congatulations to Tanya and Marius. Domnul sa va binecuvinteze (May God bless you). Sorry I couldnt come to the wedding, maybe I'll be able to come to your first baby dedication? lol.
Second of all SAM I'm your biggest fan! I check your blog almost daily. Also I'm completely amazed at your skills, actually your God given gift to capture such beauty.
And third, Im in awe on how you can still sit like a little child with you legs underneath you. lol (saw the pic on Tony Hoffer's blog.) Amazing.

May God continue to bless you and your family. I wish you were living in Texas, cuz I would absolutely book a session :)
