Mădălina + Lucian. A wedding story told backwards

You've met these two always smiling, friendly and loving people. We have written their engagement story not so long ago.

This time we're going to share their wedding story. And we are going to tell it backwards. Because it's fun :)
The last image is right before leaving Amsterdam for our flight to Bucharest. We were already late but we had no memory of Lucian's bike. So a quick shot to remember.

Before that, we went to Hague beach for a session. It was windy as hell, late October freezing our bones. But Mădălina endured everything with a smile. We couldn't believe it when looking through the viewfinder <3

We are deeply in love with such natural, minimalist looking images. We believe that these are memories! In fact, we didn't suggest any posing or expressions at all. Minimal equipment was used. It was like going with friends for a walk.

Our friend Ștefan Mirea used a drone to create his videography. Loved the silhouettes.

Sun was coming and going. This was about the only time we saw the light :)

We took a short brake and sheltered from the wind.

This image is so esoteric and it conveys peace and tranquility. It wasn't at all like this, cold wind was blowing and Mădălina was trembling like a leaf.

Driving to Hague we encouraged ourselves that weather will be just fine for a photoshoot :) In fact, it was raining just a tad....

Getting ready to leave for Hague. A black cat watched our preparations, probably saying: are you crazy, it's freezing outside!

The first day in Amsterdam for our shoot with the two. It was kind of cold (4-6 degrees) and we worried about Mădălina catching a cold. Not to mention that our hands froze on cameras.
But images kept coming. No posing, no directions, just life. Their relationship on the Netherlands' background.

final arrangements before the wedding photo session
Let's take a short brake before showing you the wedding photos. Lucian and Mădălina wanted to go to Bulgaria for the session above. And we told them: really? You live in Amsterdam and want Bulgaria as a scenery? First of all, images should have relevant context. Second, Amsterdam beats everything in terms of variety and interesting things. We could shoot for a week there and never repeat anything.
Now, wedding photos in reverse :)

Lucian is eager to see Mădălina's first signature as his wife!

Did she just say 'yes'?

'Do not disturb' it says! I'm working :)

And, finaly, two images from their engagement session!

We know you will read this story! Because it's true! Nothing fake, no pretending! Everything just happened and it was captured on camera. Do you want the same? Give us a call :)

P.S. Mădălina and Lucian: I love you! True friends, wonderful inside and outside, respectful and searching for real things in life. That's what I feel about you and I wish you all the kindness in the world!
