My name is Mioara and I am an avid traveler, adventure lover, photo obsessed and wedding photographer. I am forever inspired to create fun, classic, pictures that make couples not only look good, but feel good.
In fact, that's how I began my photography journey! I'd dress-up and make-up my friends and pretend we were shooting for Vogue. We even got published in a few different magazines, which was cool. But once I turned my attention to weddings, it felt like I'd finally found my opportunity to create meaningful work. Those pictures are not only for you, but will become a family heirloom for future generations to enjoy. That notion is so magical to me that I've fallen madly in love with weddings and have been exclusively photographing them ever since!
I believe wedding photos should reflect your true authentic self. My mission is to capture the essence of who you are so that 20 years from now, you can look back at these pictures and say "That was totally US!" My best advice to any newly engaged couple: treat your wedding experience with intention and keep your future selves in mind. After all is said and done, your photos and rings are some of the only things you take away and this is a story you will get to share for the rest of your lives together. Make it a good one.
If we get to work together, I'll always encourage you to do an engagement session. Set aside a day to do your favorite things, in regular apparel and just have fun. Let's go to your favorite date night spots, eat your favorite foods, make each other laugh and be silly together. Maybe that means sneaking onto rooftops, swimming in a lake, scrambling rocks, or playing at the sand dunes. Whatever makes you LIGHT up with joy, I want you to DO that and we'll create some incredible pictures together! ^_^
If this sounds like the type of photography you'd get excited for, fill out my contact form here! Please note, I take on a limited amount of weddings per year to make sure that every couple I am lucky enough to work with gets my full attention and is well taken care of.
I have been photographing couples in love for over 10 years and couldn't imagine doing anything else.
My work has taken me across the world to places like Romania, Iceland, Thailand, the beautiful American southwest as well as the pacific north west like Bend, Oregon and Crater Lake. I go on roadtrips often and will pretty much go ANYWHERE to photograph you! Like I said, travel is my JAM.
My love for fashion is what inspired me to be a photographer first.
And my love for people brought me to weddings! As my previous couples can attest, I have a tendency to turn into your own personal hype girl from behind the lens and I like to harness my inner editorial photographer at every wedding to create unique images that tell YOUR story.
Your wedding day is WAY more than a photoshoot.
I'm not doing anything for the 'gram. I'm doing it for YOU. And I am a huge proponent of EXPERIENCE over EVERYTHING! Rigid posing is lame. I believe your wedding day should be full of all the things that make you shine from the inside out. Seriously. Because when you're having a good time, there is NO WAY your photos won't turn out amazing. I will offer guidance along the way but never make you pose or you do anything that's not "you". ✨✨
