  • The Photos Are Incredible

    Thank you for being part of our wedding! The photos are incredible and really capture the excitement, meaningfulness, and emotion of the day. Just as important, we loved working with you. We are grateful for all the time you took to get to know us. And our parents all agreed that you were fabulous. Big thank to Ellen Miller for introducing us! We are excited to see the wedding album and look forward to staying in touch in the months and years to come!

    Smooth, Calm, & Organized. Fantastic!

    Ion was nothing short of fantastic and I have only good things to say about this man/photographer. I liked him from the start. I had talked with a few photographers prior and their level of professionalism and experience did not even come close to Ion's. After we booked him, he came to our house for an engagement shoot (which was helpful as we got to work with each other before the "big day"). It was a great intro to his style, and to our own actions in front of the lens. He made sure to ask about details, from who was in the family to the order of the ceremony and also any concerns we had. On our wedding day, Ion was smooth, calm, and organized. He quickly became accustomed to who our family members were and made sure everyone who needed to got a portrait with us -- whether formal or informal. He clearly loves his job and it shows. In addition, Ion has a great sense of humor, which made him all the more awesome to work with. We are very happy with the pictures he took of us and I would recommend anyone looking for a wedding/event photographer to highly consider Ion. Lastly, I AM a photographer, and as a result, find myself to be VERY picky when it comes to other photographers. That being said, I hope you find my feedback helpful during the often overwhelming process of choosing a photographer to take pictures on a very important day. 

    The Photos Made Me Weep With Joy

    We could not be happier with our choice of photographer! Ion Zupcu was beyond professional, his years of experience, skill, and love for his art shows in every picture. He was thoughtful, honest, and creative in every aspect of our engagement and wedding photos. He took his time, explaining and listening to our very detailed requirements of the most precious memory we would ever have, "Our Wedding Day." His easy and happy disposition put everyone at ease and made it feel natural and un-staged. He captured moments without us even aware of his presence that made me weep with joy when I first saw them. His commitment to us on our special day was evident in every aspect of care he took to reassure us that we had exactly what we wanted, and we did. His pictures captured so many fabulous, touching moments, that I couldn't choose. I ended up doubling the size of my album, so as not to miss one magical moment. His genius shines through his art and I would proudly recommend his photography service to anyone. You will not be sorry. You will be thrilled. We adore him and his talent. Thank you again Ion. You have captured our joy with your pictures and our hearts with your charisma.

    We Love Our Photos!

    We absolutely love Ion Zupcu. I was extremely nervous on the day and he was great at relaxing me and making me smile and laugh. He was exceptionally hard working and professional, but quiet and unobtrusive and he captured everything we wanted and so much more. Our family and friends loved him and his quiet, wry sense of humor. Of course, in the end, it's the photos that matter and boy what photos. Everyone looks great and everyone, yes, everyone, was extremely happy with how they came out. We love our photos!!

    Lucky To Have Found Him!

    Ion and his assistant made our day super easy. I was really impressed that he went out ahead of the wedding date and researched some places in the area where we could take wedding photos. It put us very much at ease knowing he had researched it ahead of time. He also proposed a really great schedule for the photos. I felt like he was way more organized than I was! We feel lucky to have found him! Highly recommend.

    An Eye For Fine Composition

    Ion's eye for fine composition truly rendered some beautiful pictures of our wedding day. He was also a pleasure as he accompanied us on our special day. Of utmost importance, he made us, our bridal party, and our family feel comfortable, which was key to shooting us at our best. In fact, we were so pleased with Ion that my sister-in-law hired him for her wedding and we invited Ion back to shoot our newborn baby girl's first photos! 

    The Pictures Are Amazing

    When we first became engaged we set up appointments with a few photographers. We met with Ion first and were so blown away by the quality of his work and the reasonableness of his prices that we booked him on the spot and canceled the rest of our appointments. Each time we met with Ion or communicated with him we continued to be more and more impressed. Ion was extremely easy to work with. He was always extremely prompt with his replies and gave great suggestions and ideas. Within three days of our wedding Ion had a sampling of pictures for us. The pictures are completely amazing and look like they could be in a magazine. Ion's meticulous attention to detail and passion for photography are evident. We highly recommend Ion! 

    Beautiful Album With Artistic Touches

    Very professional and punctual. Went over the entire course of the day several meetings prior to the wedding date and everything went as planned. Album was beautifully made with artistic touches.

    Absolutely Floored by his Images!

    Words cannot describe Ion. From our very first meeting, he was just wonderful. Not only does he listen to ideas from his clients, but he makes them come to life. Each time we met with Ion, we were coming up with new ideas and making things happen. When it came to our engagement shoot, Ion worked tirelessly to make sure we looked good and natural in our photos. He was in attendance at our rehearsal to give us pointers and walk through the next day with us. When the day of the wedding arrived, Ion was early in his arrival time. We had worked out a photo schedule in the months before the wedding and he followed that to a “T”. Our wedding party was very impressed with him and with the easy nature that he took when it came to taking our photos. They loved the idea of doing pictures before the ceremony so we could enjoy the cocktail hour and reception. During the reception, it was like Ion was a fly on the wall. He was very unobtrusive and allowed everyone to have a good time. Just four days after the wedding, Ion was sending a mock photo album to our email so we could see some of the images he had captured and we were absolutely floored! Not only had he put together a 16-page album, you could tell he put his heart into his work to make sure it was something we would love. You cannot go wrong with Ion Zupcu. He will take the vision you have and make it 100 times better.
