If you and your significant other will be getting married soon, before choosing your wedding photographer, take your time and do your homework. Having the right wedding photographer can be such a blessing but on the flip side, having the wrong photographer can truly be a curse. I know that you too have heard those wedding photographer horror stories. When planning a wedding, you will find that everyone becomes an expert but always remember these simple truths; this is your life, your time, your money, your wedding and you deserve to be happy with your wedding choices. By the time you reach the alter, you will have invested months of dreaming, planning, scheduling, negotiating, coordinating and meeting with vendors to insure that they fulfill your wedding vision. And after praying that everything goes as planned, when that life changing day arrives, you will realize that there are no do overs, no replays and no second chances to get it right. You absolutely can't afford to leave the choice of your wedding photographer to chance and you need to have the upmost trust that your wedding photographer will capture all the beautiful moments of your wedding.
Of course, there are many wedding photographers to choose from but remember you want the very best because you deserve the very best. Although we live 500 miles from Lake Tahoe, after viewing Ciprian's gorgeous work on his websight and blog, we set up an appointment to interview him. Upon our initial meeting, rather than trying to impress us with with what he could do, he presented himself as down to earth, listened to what we wanted, asked a lot of pertinent questions and made some very good suggestions. There was no pressure, no sales pitch but instead he was professional and he encouraged us to take our time to compare and contrast his work with that of his peers. After reviewing the work of dozens of wedding photographers, the choice was clear and we could not be more blessed with having chosen Cirprian as our photographer.
On our wedding day, family, friends and even vendors had excellent feed back regarding how well Cirprian interacted with them. To this date, everyone in my wedding party continues to ask about Cirprian and how he is doing. He was charming, engaging, conversant, encouraging, patient, good natured, great with children and seamlessly blended in with everyone. I am still impressed that he had taken the time to memorize everyone's name and treated everyone with the upmost respect yet maintained a gentle assertiveness to steer people into the right shots at the right time.
As in his other beautiful work, he did not disappoint us as our gorgeous wedding photos were balanced, focused, detailed, lush and rich in color. He also complimented his color photographs with stunning black and white pictures. In reviewing Cirpian's work, it is quite clear that he is a master in the use of frame, timing, lighting, contrast, exposure, and focus. We are so pleased that he beautifully captured the essence of those special tender moments of our wedding. The reader should know that by nature, I am not photogenic and forewarned Ciprian that I have the smile of a dead cat. Yet, I have nothing but the highest praise for the quality and the style of the work that he produced for us. Prior to our wedding, we spent a considerable amount of time in effort to find the very best photographer for our wedding and I am happy to say that our research was well rewarded. I too can attest that-as his recently recognized accolades have noted-Ciprian is the very best at what he does. We placed our all of our trust in Ciprian and without a doubt, he delivered. The tough part now will be to cull through the 812 gorgeous wedding photos he took because they are all so beautiful.
