Cristina & Alex - studio portraits

I got a call from Alex. He said something about coming to Piatra Neamț. And he wanted me to create some images in the studio. I know Alex and Cristina for quite some time now, they are both wedding photographers and attended several photographic gatherings, including shootLess.

I was delighted by the opportunity. We created some images, drank coffee and made fun of each other, as smart people do. Including face-painting with mud from Techirghiol. Let me tell you: it smells like nothing you know.

Afterwards, we eat lunch up on the Cozla mountain (at Gospodine) and walked some forest paths just for the silence and fresh air. The day ended superbly at our dear friends Alexandra and Szobi, in Stejaru area, near Piatra Neamț. Of course, Nina came and we had a blast barbequeing some Thai style vegetables and some really tasty trout.

Enjoy some of the images. And try to understand: photos are good for remembering the times. Not for some clever trickery, not for the appearances. They are your photos when they show you who you are in that moment. That's it.

Here is true Techirghiol mud in action! Not so inspired in shape but changed the mood of the images nevertheless!

Here is Alex with hair! Long hair! Doesn't he look better?

And one final image with their relation so pregnant that I think this image will occupy a place on their wall for quite some time. Incidentally, I've created another image of them in April, during shootLess, that stands proudly in their home. I will show it to you when I find it :)
