eyond a beautiful image is a legacy that lasts, a heart that dreams, and a story worth sharing. My mission is to pursue deeper meaning and purpose through the kind of photography that creates conversations surrounding your legacy by communicating the love of Jesus through a servant-hearted approach to telling stories. Based in Washington, DC and serving couples, families, and grads along the East Coast (VA, MD, South Central PA) and beyond, I love the kind of genuine connection that unfolds from authentic storytelling. It's my honor and joy to celebrate you.


Timeless images documenting history in the making

east Coast Wedding + Portrait Photographer


Images of once-and-a-lifetime moments of your love story, documented with purpose and intentionality to capture memories turned into heirlooms for the next generation.

Celebrating life's milestones through family, maternity, and graduation photography. Each portrait session is tailored to create a space that invites you to experience confidence, comfort, and authentic joy. 

Partnering with non-profits or organizations with a mission to create impact in their community and across the nation. From fund-raising events to marketing images, I'm honored to support your legacy.

I've always been inspired by the beauty that exists all around us. From documenting adventures with family and friends, to natural landscapes that inspire awe, I believe these details matter. After photographing my first wedding for a dear friend several years ago, I've seen the power and impact that photos can have in someone's life journey. Images can create the feeling of tangible memories. As someone who was raised in Romania and came to the United States when I was 10, the value of heritage, memories, culture, and storytelling is a core part of who I am. Today, I'm so blessed to serve couples, families, and seniors through timeless images that cultivate a true sense of purpose, history, and joy.

"Adela photographed our wedding and did such a fantastic job! She was incredibly detailed leading up to the event, always available for questions, and came prepared with a plan. In the midst of all the stress of our big day, she was very professional and made us feel like we could leave this aspect of the wedding completely in her hands. Her and her team were able to capture all of the important moments that we wanted. Our photos turned out amazing, and we will always love having the memories to treasure."

"Adela did such a perfect job at capturing every part of our wedding day! We felt so comfortable in front of the lens and truly had so much fun the whole day! She gave me time to myself when she noticed my stress level rising, and gave my husband and I time alone right after the ceremony to soak in what just happened!! She not only rocked shooting the actual wedding day, but her edits are so DREAMY! We will always treasure our wedding photos and can't thank Adela enough for these irreplaceable memories!"

"Adela photographed my husband and I 's engagement shoot and wedding! She did a remarkable job on both occasions. She is great about making her clients feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. On our wedding day she captured all the special moments of the event and had the photos back to us quickly. Everyone I showed the wedding album too commented on the high quality of the photos. I would highly recommend Adela to photograph your special occasions."
