Celebrations: Weddings, Baptisms, Religion. Romanian - Nunta, Botez, Liturghie

Joyous celebrations, weddings and baptisms, ordinations and canonizations, liturgies, monasteries and cathedrals, are all sacred to our lives and an honor and challenge to photograph. It is important to capture the beauty and record the memories without being obtrusive. I have had the privilege to photograph ordinations at the Vatican in Rome, the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Orthodox Church in Etchmiadzin, Armenia, and the canonization of Saint Andrei Saguna in the Trinity Cathedral of Sibiu, Romania, as well as numerous weddings and baptisms. In 2011 'Catedrala' a major book of my photos with text by His Eminence Dr. Laurentiu Streza, Metropolitan of Transylvania and Archbishop of Sibiu, about the Holy Trinity Romanian Orthodox Cathedral in Sibiu, Romania was published. Every wedding and celebration is unique, with a series of moments and interactions to capture, creating a lasting visual diary of an extraordinary day. Of all of the photgraphy that I do, these are the most personalluy rewarding and where I fell the greatest desire to 'get it right', as they are once in a lifetime events. Based in Sibiu, Romania, I work with Matt Gainer when in Los Angeles, and Russell Young in Portland, Oregon.
