Can wedding photography be good photography? Can wedding photos be true? Can a photographer take pictures of weddings? As a wedding photographer, I believe that it is. That's why for over 10 years I have been doing my best to let people who trust me receive a remarkable memento of their wedding. Will my photos move you? I can not guarantee it, but the fact that it has been repeatedly awarded (among others by an international organization associating the best wedding photographers in the world - WPJA) or published (including by New York's BRIDES MAGAZINE) means that there is such a risk . Where do I photograph? Krakow, Warsaw, Rzeszów, Kielce, Łódź, Zakopane - these are just a few of the larger cities in which I carried out wedding sessions. Distance does not matter. I live in Krakow, but I will go anywhere. I invite you to familiarize yourself with my portfolio, and if you want to see the latest photos or learn something about wedding photography then also look at the blog.

Wedding photography allows you to return to Emotions and Moments that accompanied your wedding day. It is a story recorded in wedding reportage. Wedding photos that I perform at the wedding give a real atmosphere and are performed without artificial pretending and directing. I always approach each shot and entire wedding reportage. My wedding photos watched years later in the wedding album may be transferred to the world of memories reflecting as faithfully as possible the wedding day on which I took pictures.
