RALUCA + LUCIAN | June 2013
Old Monastery Wedding. Sucevita Wedding. Nuna la Manastirea Sucevita
I photographed this wedding back in 2013 (!). While I like to hold on to my old work to be able to see how I grow over the years, I encourage your to check out my more recent work, here.
Old Monastery Wedding Sucevita Monastery. Nunta la Manastirea Sucevita
Earlier this summer I traveled far up in the north of Romania to photograph the wedding of Raluca and Lucian. I had an amazing time there. I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the mountains. Moreover, I experienced the craziest wedding party of this summer. Also, I broke the record in wedding coverage, photographing for 23 hours. (Many thanks to Em Iova for working beside me on this day). And I won a fearless award with an image from this day.
The orthodox wedding ceremony took place in the in the Sucevita Monastery, a painted church part of World Heritage Sites.
Here is what Raluca writes about her wedding:
It all went so fast that I can hardly remember something clearly.
I guess the karaoke part was nice, the flying candles also and the flash stickers dancing.
