Romanian Tradition

We’re officially launching our blog with a post from our recent trip to Romania. While traveling through the beautiful province of Moldavia we had the privilege to witness an old Romanian custom called “scalda” which is the baby shower before the baptism and the feast that followed afterward.

This occasion was also possible thanks to Romanian National Television who also filmed the event. Very special thanks go to Mrs. Carmen Stoica and Mr. Stefan Stoica the producers of the Romanian Dowry TV show who offered us the opportunity to work together on this project.

While I am gathering my thoughts trying to describe this special event I also realize that the images speak for themselves better than any other written description. I will add though that we strove to capture a world and tradition that is unfortunately vanishing little by little.  Romania, like any other country that is embarked on a globalization path, which we don’t know where it leads yet, loses its identity day by day, therefore, witnessing such an event was a tremendous experience.

We captured a custom from a world untouched by political or economical issues and which is only available now in books and in our grandparent’s memories.  This is also the world of our childhood, of our history and of our roots. We come from that world and this is our family and our identity card as well. We are proud to be part of this family and we share these moments with you hoping that you now have a brief introduction about whom we are and where we come from.

Even though we’re mainly wedding and portrait photographers our first blog post features the baptism of a baby. We like to think that this is not a coincidence and that from a “baby” our blog will grow into an adult. Hopefully you’ll join us in our journey and you’ll stay connected to our world so that we can share with you little by little from our photographic experience.
