“It’s not the mountains we conquer, but ourselves.”
Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish, Hesse says. I hope our photographs will be more powerful than our words. Images will speak better about how Alex and Hari met each other as kids, grew together as friends and got married so very young and in love. I hope their contagious smiles and joy for life will stick with you a while after watching their story. Oh, and this is a photographers’ wedding (our favourite kind!), so make sure to check their work and spread the love!
Meeting Simona and her family and spending this afternoon together had an impact on me. I listened to their story and saw it unfold in front of my camera. I let it speak to my heart. And then came that feeling that there’s probably nothing better, nothing more fulfilling in this life than having a family. Simona & Radu’s family is profound, deep-rooted, joyful. Everyone is involved in the family life and they are really connected to each other. They care for the ones they love. It seems now that the bigger the family, the bigger the love is. I guess this is how love works, it multiplies when it’s shared. It is more blessed to give, than to receive.
P.S. Besides doing the great job at being a mother of four, Simona is also a talented photographer. Check out her work here.
