My wedding photography and pictures…

I love my world where the quality matters... According to the Italian Magazine „Just Married”, I am among the Top Wedding Photographersin the world in 2014. In 2015 I received the prestigious title of the „Wedding Photographer of the year 2015” from the Master Photographers International Organization (MPIO).

 

Since 2019 I have been a proud Nikon Ambassador.

I was awarded in the category: „Trendsetters – The Most Beautiful Polish Wedding” by Bridelle. My images were listed among "Top 10 Images of the Year 2016" of Braut Foto Award in two categories and I was nominated for "The Overall Winner of the Braut Foto Award 2016" title. I received the second place in category: "Fashion" in La Grande Photo - International Photographic Awards 2015/2016. In 2014 I received „Diamond Award” for the image „The Bride in Tuscany” and „The Best Award – Photographer of The Year 2014” of the International Film and Photography Festival in Asia. I also won many other competitions for photographers organized by e.g. Coffee Heaven (1stplace), Wedding Photographers Forum in the categories: Detail (1stplace), Light (1stplace), Portrait (2ndplace), Detail (2ndplace), Creative Portrait (2ndplace).

Developing my style, I was recently awarded by SWPP (Gold Awards) and One Eyeland Organization (finalist in the category: Wedding).

To me wedding photography and meeting couples is not a daily routine, it is a passion of mine. I am always trying not to limit myself to preparation of a wedding photo set and taking pictures for a wedding album. As a wedding photographer first and foremost I am trying to capture moments, emotions, joy and tears. From the bottom of my heart I know that I have chosen the most beautiful profession in the whole world.

 

 

 

My wedding reportages tell the story, the story of a married couple, home, guests, exceptional mood which can be felt only on that day, the wedding day. When I am preparing a wedding reportage I always try to choose photographs which are full of light, fairy-tale shadows and colours. Looking from a broad perspective I am not forgetting about tiny details such as wedding rings, earrings, trembling hands, hugs, glimpses. My wedding pictures are a way to show what is hidden in plain sight.

For several years as an Ambassador of „Dedolight”in Poland I have been supporting other wedding photographers and their development through comprehensive photography workshops. I have provided many workshops for photographers, working for "The School of image”, "European Academy of Photography” and "Nikon Academy”. Being also an Ambassador of Eizo, Wacom, Phase One, reporterStrap Phottix and a member of „Phottix Pro Team” I have an access to the best lighting equipment and screens.

 

 

I am an author of many eBooks for wedding photographers. My last guidebook was called „Wedding Photographer Bible” and I’m currently working on the next revision. My photographs were published in many magazines for women such as: Wonderful Wedding, W like Wedding, Warsaw Wedding Guidebook, Photo, Our Wedding, Facts, Wedding Couple, Camerapixo, Photography MasterClass, Foto Digital and Dream Wedding Magazine.

…I fly over my reality
… I run into my undefined space
… I stay silent absorbing what I see
… I breathe with every moment
… I jump into the power of emotions
… I roll myself towards the goodness
… I miss the past moment
