We’re so happy you’re here!
Some of you probably know my work from my old platform, Beatrice Boghian Photography.
Don't worry, you're in the right place!
It's still me, but with an exciting new concept I hope you guys and gals will love!
Maybe it won’t be a surprise to you that one of the big changes is that I managed to drag my artsy, creative, dorky husband, Călin, into my wonderful world of capturing emotion.
But before we get into details, let us introduce ourselves!
We are Beatrice and Călin, wedding and couple photographers, best friends, husband and wife, born and raised in different parts of the country (Suceava and Brașov). We met in the heart of Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca, where we are based now.
And we are happy to travel anywhere for photo shoots and weddings!
Călin & Beatrice
I am hungry for stillness and deep breaths to take "the now" in. When I'm with my husband, family and friends I know everything will be OK. They keep me true to myself and fuel my inspiration.
I believe everyone has beauty. I believe that little moments are the biggest joy of your lives.
Călin's guitar music, coffee, autumn colors, bonfires, movies, books and sunsets keep me grounded and balanced in this wonderful but sometimes crazy world.
So why did Călin and I start photographing weddings together?
I needed a reliable and talented second shooter, with an eye for special moments and I knew I could always count on him for that. Now we're on a mission to capture love stories together.
I got lucky with Călin because he's been a long time 3D artist so he has a trained eye for beauty and aesthetics. Picking up the camera was easy for him since the artistic principles are the same.
But it wasn't just that if I'm honest.
As you probably know, sometimes it can be a challenge to joggle between the people and things you love and the responsibilities that arise on a daily basis.
It's not always easy to find the right balance between all the hectic routines of day to day life. In many ways both Călin and I felt that our regular jobs can sometimes creep in and "steal" the precious time we have as a couple.
Life is way too short to spend it apart, so we decided to give it a try and see what happens.
After photographing a few weddings together, Călin and I stayed up late one night and asked ourselves what do we like about photography and what do we want to photograph from now on?
Why We Do What We Do
We are fascinated by people, by light, the beauty of the present moment, authenticity and joy, spontaneity, laughter and the unconventional.
The connection between you and your beloved, the joy of being your true selves fuels our passion for capturing your story. We believe you are beautiful, unique and important.
We love capturing all the life and emotion hidden behind a smile, a kiss, an embrace, two hands holding, eyes locking.
We like to think that the photos of your special day will become more and more valuable to you in time. That they will become like little treasures you rediscover time after time, when you find yourselves surrounded by people you love and contemplating how lucky you are to have someone so special in your life.
And we feel very fortunate and thankful to be part of all that.
What inspires us the most are people and their stories, so don’t be surprised if we ask a lot of questions about you two, how you met, what you love, what are your hobbies, worries and biggest desires. And if you ask we’ll definitely share too! We love sharing how we fell in love, how Călin proposed and the unconventional little wedding we had. :)
We believe that connection and trust between you and us are the secret ingredients of successfully capturing everything that is important to you on the day of the big event.
We are always honored and humbled whenever couples open up to us after a few minutes into the conversation during our first get together. It is a pleasant reminder that we're in the right place, with the right people, creating a beautiful bond that will lead to beautiful photographs and cherished memories.
Creating the Story
We love doing engagement sessions before the actual wedding because that’s when the real fun begins. This is when all the awkwardness of being in front of the camera disappears and we become friends.
This is the first time we work together, and it's the best opportunity for us to guide and help you see yourselves in the same wonderful light we do. To show you how beautiful and precious you and your experiences are. Our goal is to help you feel relaxed, be yourself and have as much fun as possible.
And on your actual wedding day, you won't need as much guidance from us anymore, you will be pros at being photographed and beautiful moments will happen organically, and the results will be spectacular!
We’ll be there for you and your loved ones. We will be there to capture your mother staring lovingly at you while you are getting ready. We will be there to capture your father seeing you for the first time all dressed up. We will be there to capture your grandparents tearing up as they embrace you on the happiest day of your life!
And we'll make sure we do all that without you having to worry about anything. All you have to do is enjoy your wedding day. We will, of course, occasionally provide a few gentle reminders and directions, we will make sure your bow tie is straight, the lighting is flattering and that your dress, hair or make-up look perfect.
Do whatever makes your heart happy!
It’s your day and everyone is there for you, to celebrate your love for each other.
We’ve been there too!
We had a small wedding ceremony with only the closest people in our lives and it was an immense joy to feel their love surrounding us. We did everything exactly like we wanted and everybody was happy, because we were happy and in love.
It might rain, it might be cloudy, a million things can go wrong!
Our wedding day was rainy and we circled the restaurant a hundred times because we couldn’t find a parking space and when we finally got there, the food wasn’t ready! But what made that day perfect was how much fun we had, all the shared love and joy of being together, despite all the things that went wrong.
It's all about how you frame your big day.
