HELLO AND WELCOME!
I am Alina! I am a wife, a mom, and a wedding photographer based in Northern Virginia. I am so excited that you are here!
Because I believe that getting to know my clients is the #1 way to ensure an awesome photography experience, I’d love to tell you a little bit about me. Here are a few things you should know!
I do life with my sweet, yet crazy little family in Leesburg, Virginia. My husband and I met on a missions trip in Romania, Europe where I grew up. Together, we planned THREE weddings: two in Europe and one in the States. This pretty much made me a wedding planning expert :) Following our Romanian wedding, we honeymooned in Italy, which we fell in love with and hope to visit again sometime.
Fast forward to now, we are the proud parents of two little blessings: Kenneth and Emma! Most days you can find me in my pajamas way past noon, chasing after our two wild ones. My happiness comes from slow mornings loving on my babies, and late nights watching way too much Netflix with the hubs while devouring a scrumdiddlyumptious bowl of chocolate ice cream. I love all things salted caramel and no meal is complete without Krispy Kreme doughnuts. When I’m not shooting weddings, you can catch me decorating (and redecorating) our house, and finding way too many projects around the house for my husband to help me with.
If you are dying to hear more, here are a few things you might not know about me:
- I was born and raised in Romania, Europe.
- I studied linguistics in college and speak 3 languages.
- I get way too competitive at playing DutchBlitz.
- My husband proposed to me with a family heirloom.
Still here?! Let’s connect! I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing couples around and I cannot wait to learn more about your story. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you!
