Ion was nothing short of fantastic and I have only good things to say about this man/photographer. From the start, I liked him off the bat. 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 out 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 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 he was sensitive to. 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 were/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.

We loved working with Ion Zupcu for our wedding. The engagement photo shoot was a great way to get to know Ion and his style, and also to get more comfortable in front of the camera. For the wedding itself, Ion had helpful suggestions and also followed our lead about what, when and who to photograph, and he took fantastic shots - really wonderful. Ion has a warm and fun personality, and he does not draw attention to himself as he works. He does not use a flash, even in darker settings, and we REALLY appreciated that. We were also grateful for how quickly he posted our photos, and then how much time and energy he put into our album. Everything came out great, and we really enjoyed working with Ion. We'd highly recommend him for your wedding.

My husband and I chose Ion to be our photographer because we had seen his work and were thoroughly impressed. We were even more excited to work with Ion after we met with him. Ultimately he exceeded our expectations! Ion has a dedicated and caring work ethic. It isn't just another wedding or celebration to him. He makes you feel truly special and it shows in his beautiful work. Ion is a true artist with a unique and exquisite style. His eye for photography and editing is unmatched. In fact, he suggested the location for us to take pictures after the ceremony and those are some of our favorite pictures! We absolutely love our album and all pictures and we constantly get compliments on how amazing they look. Every time we look at our album we re-live our favorite day! Both he and his assistant helped our day to be smooth and enjoyable. Not only is Zupcu Photography an excellent choice, but it is very reasonably priced as well. We will definitely use Ion's services for future events and family 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 its 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!!

Ion did a great job with both our engagement and wedding photographs. He did a lot of preliminary work to ensure that he knew the layout, and locations that would make the best photographs. His prices were reasonable and it was obvious that he was personally invested in the entire photographic process. Both my wife and I are very pleased with the finished photographic album. I highly recommend 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.

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.

I would absolutely recommend Ion Zupcu for wedding photography. Not only were his photographs absolutely stunning, but his personality and professionalism were a wonderful addition to the wedding day! I was comfortable with Ion from the moment we sat down and he truly listened to what my husband and I wanted out of a photo album. He has a perfect balance of posed and candid shots and managed to capture every moment we wanted to remember on film. I'm sure if you tried you could find a photographer who was cheaper, but it wouldn't be worth it. With Ion you certainly get everything you pay for and more. I would choose him again in a heartbeat.

Ion is the best! He's fun to work with and totally focused on his craft. When you need a photographer for your business, wedding or special occasions, contact Zupcu Photography. Ion is affordable and will not settle for average. He is stellar!

Sue:
Ion is very passionate about his work and it is so amazing to see. His standards are incredibly high and he will work until he has shots that HE is happy with. He truly works to capture personality and emotion. He is the only photographer I use for my personal and my business life. I refer him to all of my friends, family and clients with pride and trust.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Ion Zupcu. He was very flexible with us, and at the same time, he knew when to gently make suggestions and guide us. He is very experienced, and he is also an accomplished fine art photographer. He seems to bring the same perfectionism to his wedding photography as he does to the work that ends up in galleries in New York, which is a big plus. We didn't have much of a budget, but he was willing to work with us. We ended up with lots of really great photographs. We planned to make our album ourselves using the raw images, but in the end, we decided to have him do it since we knew we could trust that it would turn out just how we wanted it. In short, I cannot recommend him strongly enough!
