About Mari Harsan Studios

“Sought after in Washington DC. and abroad for their artistic, cinematic wedding photography, Mari Harsan and George Bucur capture the very essence of what’s beautiful and authentic about the couples and families they work with. Mixing fine-art techniques with photojournalism, their photographs speak a thousand words and their clients just can’t say enough good things about them.” Blair deLaubenfels – Co-Founder of Junebug Weddings

Hello, we are Mari Harsan and George Bucur, a happily married couple devoted to one another and the work that we love so much. We travel around the world together with our cameras ready capturing love and beauty everywhere we go.

Mari has a flair for the dramatic, and her photography is clean, timeless and frequently rich with color. She’s been known to take friends and family members off guard with her warm personality and kind, caring attention, that often leaves them much more relaxed in front of the camera than they ever expected.

George, who wears his heart of his sleeve, produces films with this talented team that are always emotional, romantic, and edited to the ninth degree. He’s been known to go out on a limb, and up in the air (with his state of the art drones) to get the shots that nobody else imagines.

With years of experience working with couples in Washington D.C. and beyond, we want to offer you our talent, skill and support, so you can feel confident and relaxed as you focus on your wedding day, while we focus on bringing you an extraordinary collection of wedding imagery.


Mari is a talented photographer who knows how to balance professionalism and friendliness. All my guests loved her. The photos came out gorgeous and timeless. She made me look better than I did. She figured my best angle and worked it in. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. I know we have a family photographer for life. – Loise and Gi

Mari and George of Mari Harsan Studios are both way beyond a “5” rating for both photography and videography! What Mari and George bring and capture other than amazingly beautiful images and moments, are their equally unbelievable energy and professionalism! It is very rare that you will find an incredible mix of expertise, professionalism, excitement, and positivity. – Arlene and Paul

This was the most memorable part of the wedding 🙂 Mari and her team were very professional and helpful. The pictures came out amazing and we will never forget this great memory thanks to Mari. I would recommend her to anyone!!!  – Gabi and Khalid


Mari and George were an absolute pleasure to work with. Our photos were so amazing. And I think everyone who watched our video cried. People that didn’t attend our wedding said that the video made them feel like they were right there in the moment. Mari and George are kind and professional. We honestly feel like they are our new friends. They made sure that they got to know us very well with several coffee shop meetings, quick email responses, calls, texts, etc. They made such kind gestures like sending us a small gift saying how excited they were to work with us and that made us feel so special!  – Denise and Eufemio


Let me start of by saying thank you for the great work that Mari, George and their team did during our wedding. We met them through the bridal shower and it was an instant hit from there. We wanted to find a vendor that is not only going to give us value for our money, but is also capable of exceeding our expectations. We found it so easy to work with them, and coming from someone who is not comfortable posing, and being in front of the camera, I must say both of them did a wonderful job in making us feel comfortable right from the get go. The dedication they have for their craft and professionalism is the one that sets them apart from everyone else. Again, thanks to both of you and we are more than happy and satisfied with the outcome of your work. Thanks to you, those memories you’ve captured will be forever treasured not only in our hearts, but also to each and everyone that came and witnessed our special event. – Vince and Joanne
