Transylvania Adventure Session in the heart of Romania



Seba + Ioana have been good friends of ours for years. Since Seba is from Denmark, and Ioana is Romanian, we’ve been talking about going on a trip through Romania for quite some time. Finally, this year, we managed to carve two weeks out of everyone’s schedules to make it happen!


We all flew from Copenhagen to Bucharest, where we rented a car and spent two weeks road tripping around Romania. To say that Romania is an underrated country is an understatement itself. The country is FULL of beautiful landscapes, Carpathian mountains, glacier caves, dramatic cliffs, rocky gorges, and of course, Dracula’s castle in Transylvania.


We also managed to venture up to Lac Bâlea for a day trip, which is located in the heart of Romania. We decided to take this time to do a Transylvania Adventure Session. As we were quite a bit ahead of the high tourist season, we were lucky enough to have the entire landscape (mostly) to ourselves. The temperatures were drastically colder than the lower altitudes we were used to, and we definitely got a taste of winter again.


All in all, this adventure session proved to be one of the most beautiful I’ve photographed to date. Scroll down and enjoy!

If you’re going on an adventure and looking for a photographer to join you, feel free to get in touch! I travel all over the world documenting madly in love couples, and would love to join you!

    Those TREES! At first it was reminding me of the PNW, but then I saw the mountains and snow and it was all Transylvania. Totally need to go to Romania now; this adventure session is STUNNING. I am officially obsessed.
