Ciprian was amazing to work with! He is super comfortable to be around, which made posing for photos much easier then I thought it was going to be. He was very flexible and understanding when we had to skip the First Look at the last moment because I was not near being ready (ladies leave yourself enough time!) The photos came out amazing and right on schedule, thank you Ciprian! You are the MAN!

Ciprian has an incredibly creative and unique eye - he captured special moments of pure bliss, excitement and love in absolute perfection. We were deciding between a few different photographers for our wedding and engagement photos, but are both so happy and thankful that we hired Ciprian - his work is stunning. He is extremely professional, reliable, resourceful and personable. Ciprian made us feel 100% at ease and totally comfortable. He can make photographic miracles happen with cloudy skies, too. :) He helped make one of the best days of our lives one that we can relive every time we look at his photos. He was a quintessential part of our wedding, and would recommend him to anyone looking for an incredible photographer.

Ciprian was awesome to work with! He was very responsive before the wedding and easy to work with, which was a huge plus since we were planning everything from out of state. His rate was almost the same as another quote I received but when the other company promised 60 edited pictures, Ciprian promised 400!! We had an issue the day before the wedding and had to change locations and Ciprian was not only extremely flexible but even suggested some new spots for us. He arrived at the location before we did and immediately started taking amazing pictures. He told us exactly where to be and knew what spots and positions would make the best photos. He made us feel like models! We had some time to kill between our ceremony and reception so Ciprian suggested that we stop along the way at the Emerald Bay overlook and got some great shots that weren't even in the plans!! Once at dinner, he was careful to capture all of the details and got some more great shots of our families. The pictures came in about 2 weeks later and we could not be happier! Every last one of them is BEAUTIFUL and our friends and families can't stop raving! This was the best investment we could have made in our wedding day. I would highly recommend Ciprian to anyone and just wish that we lived closer so that we could use him in the future!

I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about Ciprian. I literally had multiple guests come up to me during the wedding and comment on how great our photographer was - before we even saw the pictures. He was enjoyable to be around and easy to work with - like having one of your friends take our pictures. He was all over the venue and ceremony getting different angles and catching all the little details, but was very discrete and never drawing attention to himself. Then we got the pictures and they were exactley what we were hoping for - he told the story of the day and seemed to capture the setting beautifully (we just happened to be in the pictures too!) and nothing cheesy. The pictures were great and confirmed what we thought on the wedding day; he's amazing!

Ciprian did our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and we could not be happier with the service and quality he provided us. He understood that we were not looking for "cheesy jump in the air/make hearts with our hands" style photos. He captures the moment, and knows how to provide stunning images. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, and his work speaks for itself. My husband and I, as well as our families, were very pleased with his work. I would recommend him a thousand times over.

I tend to think the most important decision you make for your wedding is your choice in photographer. My husband and I are elated with how our wedding album turned out! I've never seen an album with such a nice design to it! When we finished looking at the album we turned to each other with huge smiles and said, "can we do it all over again!?!" The photos really brought us back to that amazing day and it was so much fun reminiscing! Ciprian's photos are artistic but at the same time appear natural and really capture those special moments. He was very easy and personable right from the first time I spoke with him. My friends and family really enjoyed him and he was also well known at our venue. Ciprian also did our engagement photos on a day in Tahoe that was about -8 degrees. We're still blown away at how gorgeous those snowy photos are and how we don't seem to look like we're freezing. Our engagement album matches our wedding album and it's so wonderful having those displayed on our shelves and sharing with everyone. You were definitely the right choice, thank you Ciprian!

From the beginning, Cirprian was very helpful and flexible with our busy schedule and he made sure to make everything work around us. When we finally had a chance to meet him, he was so easy to talk to and I felt like he truly cared about how our pictures came out. He was very good about making us feel comfortable the entire time and thanks to that- our pictures are stunning. He picked incredible locations with beautiful scenery and we couldn't have asked for a better situation. We like him so much we are trying to take him with us to our destination wedding! You will love Ciprian Photography!

He made us look goreous in EVERY photo, and we are having a very hard time picking our "favorites" out of 654 shots. I would reccomend him to everyone I know. If you want to look good and stun everyone, Ciprian is the way to go!

We found out about Ciprian through friends who were married at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. After looking at his blog and all of the gorgeous photos he has taken from the Bay Area to Lake Tahoe we new he was the right photographer for us.


Ciprian recently photographed our engagement session, and he was such a delight to work with. He made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable during the shoot. He gave wonderful direction, made it fun, took us to beautiful scenic locations, and was very time-efficient. Our photos came out stunning!


We are beyond happy with his work, and would recommend Ciprian to anyone!!! The product he offers is professional, artistic, and intimate. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Ciprian was an amazing photographer and my husband and I highly reccomend him! My husband wasn't too thrilled with the idea of engagement photos, but within 2 minutes of getting out of the car Ciprian had him laughing and feeling at ease. I got the engagement photos in record time and we were thrilled with the outcome. Since we had a destination wedding I chose Ciprian because of the work and style he displayed on his website. We couldn't be happier with the pictures and how the whole wedding day played out. Ciprian and his second photographer were there throughout the whole day capturing all of the important memories that I am glad I can physically look back on. I can't possibly express in words how happy we are with our photographer choice. We will definitely be calling him again for family photos.

Our pictures really captured who we are naturally and it didn't even seem like we had to try. I think that is because Ciprian really has a true talent.

OUTSTANDING, OUTSTANDING, OUTSTANDING! I can't say it enough. Ciprian and his 2 assistants made our wedding day, and our future memories looking back at photos, completely memorable and fantastic. His whole team was professional but also friendly putting us all at ease in order to get the most fantastic photos possible. Ciprian was undeniably an artist but also was efficient and a fantastic leader of us and his team. We didn't get to even meet Ciprian before the wedding day, but talking to him on the phone put us at ease that he seemed to at least have a good head on his shoulders. Though not the least expensive in town, he worked with us to find a price we could all agree on and delivered above and beyond what anyone expected (we're already being approached by magazines to use the photos!). He posted select images the day after the wedding so we could get a sneak peak of all to come. His team was there early to late and completely blended into the background of the scene. When I look at photos friends or family took of a particular moment, Ciprian or one of his assistants are always right behind probably snapping a better version of that same moment.

Him and his team were out in the snow with us without any second guessing and didn't hold back on anything. He completely knew the Ritz and where to take the most interesting photos. We interviewed MANY photographers online and over the phone and Ciprian by far seemed the most flexible and responsive...a true artist too! Every vendor we worked with was very happy to hear we had chose Ciprian, all saying they had great experience with him before. I guess I've gone on enough but clearly we were extremely impressed! I would recommend him to anyone and hope to work with him again one day!

Ciprian is amazing and his photos from our day speak for themselves. I can't get over the feelings that are evoked from the photos. So many images were taken and so many moments captured that I am getting to relive our day. He was a pleasure to work with.. easy... made you feel comfortable and at ease. He let's you move through your day as if he wasn't even there. However, he was everywhere and our pictures reflect every moment that was special and even the ones we didn't witness ourselves. Our most perfect day and beautiful pictures to last a lifetime.
Thank you Ciprian!!!!!

It was wonderful to have Ciprian Photography as our wedding photographer. Ciprian is professional, prompt and patient (especially when dealing with an excited mother-in-law who wanted to jump in and take every picture herself). He captured all the important moments as well as the look and feel of our wedding beautifully, and some of the pictures are so amazing that I question whether more attractive body doubles stepped in to take our places. In particular, his outdoor shots are works of art. We were planning our wedding from across the country, and Ciprian was always quick to respond to our questions and extremely flexible in scheduling an engagement shoot during the short period of time when we were in town. I would highly recommend him to other brides/grooms.

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.

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. Read less

Ciprian was more than accomadating to all of our needs. Including spending the entire day with the bride to make sure to not only capture the moments, but you could also feel the emotions that were building up to the big moment through his pictures. I would recommend Ciprian to anyone.

I was really nervous as I was going through the process of picking a wedding photographer because photos were one of the most important things to us. I had actually fallen in love with Ciprian's photography before I had ever gotten engaged when I saw a friends wedding photos on facebook and I felt so at ease and relieved to have found Ciprian right after our initial meeting. His enthusiasm for photography was very apparent and contagious from that first meeting and he was the only photographer we met with who took the time to explain to us how he like to take photos and what equipment he used. (He is also the only photographer I’ve heard of in the area that doesn’t use flash to light the pictures and the difference in the photos from that alone is amazing!) We left that initial meeting grinning and couldn’t stop talking about excited we were for our photos, and we were not disappointed at all. He not only took beautiful pictures of our entire wedding day, but he was so incredibly easy to work with. He kept track of time so well and managed to make sure he got all the pictures we asked for and during the ceremony and reception, and he was so unobtrusive. I had no idea where he was half the time, which could also be due to how fast he was running around to catch everything from EVERY angle. I also love that I didn't have to stress about giving him a list of what to photograph exactly, I just asked for a couple of specific family combinations, because I knew he would know exactly what to take pictures of and what angles would look good and that took a big load off my shoulders! The photos were amazing and I don’t even know how we are going to narrow down our favorites for our album. I would recommend him ten times over to anyone getting married in the area!

Ciprian was amazing. My Husband and I wanted our wedding pictures to be
unique, timeless and capture the moment and not looked like typical
posed couple shots, we wanted classy, fun and unique. Ciprian exceeded our expectations. We wanted to capture all the moments from prepping before the wedding to dancingthrough the night and Ciprian was the only Photographer that said "yes, you let me know what you want, when you want" all the other photographers we approached wanted to fit us into a package option (usually containing things we didn't want) with multiple ala carte options to get just to get exactly what we wanted.
He was professional, courteous and a delight to work with we would recommend him to any bride looking for amazing pictures!

Finding a good wedding photographer is a scary project. There are a lot of photographers out there and picking one without a personal recommendation can be difficult, especially with so much on the line. We just feel so lucky to have had Ciprian shoot our wedding. My husband and I not really comfortable in front of the camera but Ciprian helped us to feel relaxed and comfortable doing all out shots. He is professional but also fun and personable to work with. He has such a creative eye, he took some very artistic photos of our wedding party and the photos of just my husband and me looked fantastic.

He stayed longer than planned and captured everything we had asked for and more. The photos we received were all just so amazing, we honestly couldn’t be happier about our experience with Cirprian. We would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for a professional, talented, and creative photographer.

Ciprian is outstanding!
Selecting a photographer was one of the most important details of our wedding. Photos are the one keepsake that will keep our wedding day memorable and vivid for years to come. I wanted a photographer that could take a more modern approach and I was thoroughly impressed. The way he plays with lighting and creativity is a talent.
I never knew photography could be such great cardio; Ciprian was literally running from place to place to make sure that we were all on time and that he didn't miss a thing. He has a very laid back yet fun personality. He had our whole wedding party laughing and we had such a fun time with him. I find myself laughing out loud as I look back through the photos. It was such a fun day and looking at the photos is like reliving the day.
Ciprian does a wonderful job in capturing emotions, expressions and candid moments. Our photos are beautiful and it is going to be a challenge narrowing down our favorites.

Planning a destination wedding is no easy feat - especially when you are unfamiliar with the vendors. Ciprian was recommended to us when we were looking for a wedding photographer and I cannot speak highly enough of him, our experience and photos. His photography style, demeanor and dedication were incredible and absolutely what we were looking for. I was definitely impressed on how responsive he was to all of our questions and how on the ball he was from the start. If you have not taken the time to meet with Ciprian and review his portfolio, I would absolutely recommend you do. I am definitely a camera shy person, but Ciprian made me feel at ease and a beautiful bride. I feel like we lucked out on such an incredible photographer and photos that we will look at for the rest of our life. Ciprian, thank you again!

Ciprian was perfect for our wedding - not only did he attend all of our activities we had the day before the wedding and took pictures he basically started the day with us when the bride with the bridesmaids got ready and did the same with the groom's party. We started splitting into two different houses at 10 am and sure enough Ciprian was there and took amazing pictures. He has a special eye for the happenings and the ability to completely vanish for you and you dont even realize that he just took a picture off you which for me took a lot of pressure of my shoulders.
The album he puts together is amazing and completely different from what I ever saw before. You can choose between three different covers (metal etc), choose between different papers (photo, shiny etc) and then select your pictures you want in there. They get printed on the paper so you dont run in danger that they ever fall out.
Go on his website and check out some pictures he has on there right now - amazing. He made our day very special with those pictures and will always make it a very memorable experience.
