this is us.
We are Oti and Ancu, husband and wife, kids, parents to Ezra and Nora - our not-so-toddlers-anymore, lovers, best friends, travelers, foodies, movie watchers, music listeners, lovers of life, in constant search of God. We own a car, a few cameras, a dog, lots of toys and a "don’t give up" poster. Our greatest accomplishment are our kids whom we love see growing and learning about the world through their eyes. We would love to say our life is a fairytale, but we would be lying. Our life is far from perfect. It is full of hardship, trials, joys, peace, the unexpected and the ordinary of raising up a family, serving our community and forming lasting relationships.
We married very young in the heart of the Carpathian mountains, under a tent we build and at tables we decorated, with food our family cooked. We had no idea what life meant and surely we didn’t know what it meant to live it together. But we understand now, after nine years, that we are in a process of constantly learning about love and sacrifice and what this means for us specifically.
Our life is a journey, a journey of discovering who we are and where we are going. And this, documenting life with a camera is a big part of that. There is so much more to be said and so much more to share, but for now, we stop here and let some images do the talking.
If you want to hear more about our story and maybe share yours with us and with the world, you can do so by writing to us. We would love to meet you.
