Our experience with Mioara was absolutely wonderful!
We could not have picked a better photographer to capture the most precious moments of our lives, from the stunning engagement photos to our BIG DAY! Mioara was very caring, and even made the long drive to our chosen engagement shoot a day before, to scout for the best photo locations ahead of our arrival. This came as such a surprise to us, and it is incredibly rare to find such passion and dedication.
For our wedding day, the photos turned out absolutely breathtaking. Mioara's camera skills are unmatched, including her understanding of best lighting and angles. She also made us feel very comfortable at the same time (we had no idea how to pose properly, or what kind of shots we were looking for). Lastly, her attention to detail when preparing our wedding album was evident. We were in awe over the quality and beauty of each page, and we will have this BEAUTY to cherish FOREVER! ❤

Mioara did an amazing job on our engagement and wedding photos. We still look at them often and can’t recommend her enough!
She was helpful in getting us to loosen up and take shots that captured our personalities without the photos looking staged. Everyone is always asking us who did our photos and complimenting the quality.
Mioara has become our go to photographer for all of our needs. She is responsive and easy to work with. If you’re look for a photographer that has talent, professionalism, quality, and overall an awesome person - go with Mioara!

We had an amazing experience working with Mia from beginning to end!
She was willing to travel for our engagement photos and spent the whole afternoon with us making sure we got to all the locations that were important to me. For the wedding day, she was extremely organized about establishing a timeline and talking through all the special moments we wanted captured. We got all the photos we wanted and never felt rushed or stressed throughout the process. When it came to finalizing our wedding album, she was so flexible about working with me and making changes until every page was perfect. I could not recommend Mioara Dragan Photography more highly. The photos turned out more beautiful than we could have hoped, and she really captured the essence of our special day.

Mioara is the absolute best! From our engagement session to our wedding day, she was so friendly, easy to work with, and just genuinely sweet. It felt like I already knew her the minute I met her. She gave us the perfect amount of direction, and at the same time, just did her thing, and unlike other photographers, she wasn't a distraction at all. She gave us our pictures back in a timely manner, and the wedding album we recently received is gorgeous! I met with quite a few other photographers when deciding who to book for our wedding, and no other photographer offered such a perfect package either. Ours included an engagement session, a second photographer, tons of pictures, and the album. We can't thank Mioara enough for capturing our day so perfectly and for helping make our day go as smoothly as possible. We feel so lucky to have these pictures for years to come. And to all of the future brides out there, book her now! It'll be the best decision you'll make during the crazy wedding planning process.

We were already aware of Mioara's talent when we booked her, but we never could have imagined how truly special she is and how perfectly she would capture our engagement and big day! I had some pretty specific ideas for our engagement shoot that I was nervous would not come out the way I pictured in my head. Mioara is like a mind reader! She took our ideas and ran with them. I knew then that we were in good hands. For our wedding day, she went above and beyond (at one point, literally scaling a ten foot wall for the perfect shot!) She spent the whole day with us from start to finish and would not leave until I felt completely satisfied that we had gotten every shot we wanted. She caught so many gorgeous candid moments that would have just been lost in the hustle and bustle of the day without her dedicated and professional eye. Everyone who sees our pictures has been awestruck by them! She is truly an ARTIST. We will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. She made the process so easy and stress-free. We are beyond grateful for her and recommend her to everyone we know that is getting married. If you are seeking perfection, look no further! I wish I could give her 100 stars!

"I cannot sing enough praises about this lovely person. I knew right after meeting Mioara I had to have her on our wedding day. She's so relaxed, fun and just wonderful to be around. The wedding day came and she was perfectly on time and started shooting some beautiful candid photos which turned out to be some of my favorites. She captured every moment perfectly and when it came to the "staged" photos they did not seem forced or awkward at all! We laughed, smiled, joked around and during that time she captured the most beautiful photos that are a true representation of us. Throughout the day she just felt like a friend, checking on me, snapping photos and just a joy to be around. I'm blessed I found her!"
One word: AMAZING! Mioara took engagement photos for us and they were truly unforgettable. She has an incredible eye and made the whole process fun and inspiring. She went above and beyond to make sure we got our perfect shots across several locations in Detroit, and gave us the guidance we needed in front of the camera. (We are both camera shy, but Mioara put us completely at ease). We had so much fun and would do it all over again in a heartbeat. We will cherish the photos and memories Mioara captured forever. So lucky to have found her!
Mioara is absolutely amazing! She reached out to me after seeing a post about our engagement on instagram and I instantly fell in love with her work. I had a hard time finding a photographer who's work I truly loved and once I saw Mioara's I wanted to book her. She flew out to NYC where we were living at the time to shoot our engagement photos which turned out absolutely amazing. Since Mioara was travelling to DC for our wedding, she arrived the day before the wedding to tour the venue the perfect spots to shoot. The day of our wedding, Mioara was great at managing our large party. She captured some of the most beautiful pictures I could've ever imagined. We were more than pleased with how great our photos turned out and received so many compliments from our friends and family. Thank you Mioara!

"Mioara was overall amazing to work with. She was extremely detailed and more importantly flexible. This was so important to us because we were living in LA but planning a wedding in Detroit. Mioara is very knowledgeable about the city of Detroit and where the good places are to take breathtaking photos. She was also very responsive to our questions/requests. Again, very happy that we picked Mioara and wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks so much for making our special day even more special!"

"I spent quite a few weeks researching photographers for our wedding because I knew that our photos would be something we would treasure and be able to look back on with pride. I am so incredibly thankful to have come across Mioara's information on The Knot. Mioara is probably one of my top three favorite things from my wedding that I truly was excited about. Her personality is super bubbly, kind and humble. My husband and I are incredibly awkward people in front of a camera and she works with it completely and makes our pictures look amazing. Our family and friends absolutely love our pictures and the work Mioara has produced. She had wonderful recommendations on places to take wedding pictures in between due to her experience. We LOVE our wedding album as well. The quality of it is exceptional! Mioara is worth every penny. We HIGHLY recommend her!"

"Gorgeous photos, fabulous style, wonderful person. Cannot say enough good things about Mioara. She was completely professional and really truly cared about perfectly capturing our wedding day. Working with her was an absolute dream! Our photos are seriously beautiful and everything that we asked for + more! I still cannot go to an event without someone gushing over my wedding photos and asking me who our photographer was! Thank you so much Mioara, we will cherish them forever!"
"My experience working with Mioara was wonderful! I am also a photographer and Mioara is one of my personal friends. I knew I wanted someone who I could trust, relate to and talk to on a personal level when it came to photographing my wedding. I was able to discuss ideas, details, my favorite angles with her, she was so open to ideas and easy to work with. Of course she also brought her creative skills to the table, all while making my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera! Even if we weren't friends before, I have no doubt that we would have become fast friends just by booking her! We are very happy with our wedding photos and love to look through them and remember our day like it was yesterday! We wouldn't have been able to do that without our beautiful, kind-hearted, talented friend, Mioara!"

"Mioara is simply amazing! From day one she was always super quick to respond to my emails. As our wedding day approached she made sure all details were covered. On the wedding day she was on time and VERY fun to work with! It was like I knew her all my life!! When we received our photos back I was stunned. They were absolutely beautiful! Words can't really describe her work. She's talented and AMAZING!"
"Mioara is such an incredible gem of a human! She was the only photographer we "interviewed" that took an interest in us as a couple, cared about our story and how we got to this point. She was kind, fun to work with and super creative. Both our engagement pictures and wedding day pictures were everything we could have asked for. The icing on the cake was definitely our wedding album. In an unbiased opinion it is by far the most beautiful and well put together wedding album I have seen to date. She is thoughtful and detailed and I am so happy with our final results!"
"Mioara is AMAZING! She was so fabulous to work with and I couldn't have picked a better photographer for our wedding! She is a sweet soul and her photos are always breathtaking! My husband and I had so much fun (and my husband is not a fan of having his picture taken but he had a blast) and she was pleasant to work with during the entire process. Also her pricing is quite reasonable for how outstanding she is. I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone!"
