Welcome! 

My name is Mioara and I am an avid traveler, adventure lover, photo hoarder and wedding photographer. I am forever inspired to create fun, classic, images that make couples feel like they've just stepped out of a magazine. 

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 a few times, which was cool. But once I began to photograph weddings, it felt like I finally found my opportunity to create meaningful work. I fell madly in love and have been doing it ever since! 

I believe wedding photos should reflect your true authentic self. I want to capture the essence of who you are so that 20 years from now, you can look back at your pictures and say "That was totally us!" 

Let's go to your favorite date night spots, do your favorite things, make each other laugh and be silly together. Maybe that means sneaking onto rooftops, swimming in a lake, scrambling on 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 images together! ^_^

If that sounds like the type of photography you're into, let a girl know!

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, traveling 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! I harness my inner fashion photographer at every wedding to make you LOOK and FEEL fabulous. As my previous couples can attest, I tend to turn into your own personal hype girl from behind the lens!

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 all about YOU and what makes 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 do anything that's not "you". ✨✨

When I'm not working I'm probably...

exploring the great outdoors

being one with nature. I know it sounds cliché but have you ever felt how small you are on a mountain top? It's exhilarating.

running... yes, for fun!

my job is very physical so I try to stay in shape to keep up with all my couples' adventures!

campfires are my happy place!

is it weird that I love smelling like campfire smoke? I caaaan't be the only one...

sorry TLC, I love chasing waterfalls

I found this one in Romania and it's one of my faves, called the Bigar Cascade Falls. Highly recommend seeing it in person!

my favorite show is a good sunset

but The Office is a close second 😉

I will paddleboard any body of water I see

I'm not actually in this picture but this couple was celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary at the Salton Sea and I just happened to capture a pic prior to hanging out & sharing travel stories. ^_^
