Dusseldorf wedding reportage photography by Patrycja Janik of NW Germany

Hi! I'm Pati and I am an elopement and wedding photographer in Mülheim, Ruhrgebiet, and NRW. I am happy to accompany you throughout Germany and Europe and create your personal and emotional wedding reportage. I am originally from Upper Silesia and have been living in NRW since 2012. After completing my studies and training in 2014, I decided to become self-employed as a wedding photographer and am happy to do such a great and emotional job. It always touches me to see how two people, surrounded by family and friends, confirm their love. A wedding is a very intimate and personal experience, the more I am grateful to be able to accompany any wedding ceremony as a wedding photographer. It's also great fun getting to know new people, many of them have become friends today. Yes, sometimes I really think a wedding photographer is the coolest job in the world! What is particularly important for me in wedding reports? The little gestures. His look, your smile. Your feelings will also be expressed without words and I will hold these for you. You like to laugh together and are not afraid of the camera? Woohooo! Then let's create something nice together - your personal love story. [Dusseldorf Wedding Photographer]
