And… now we come to the ‘little more about me section’ also known as ‘every wedding photographer’s nightmare’…! A long time ago I discovered that wedding photographers often find it incredibly hard to talk about themselves. Close friends of mine as well as other contacts from the creative industry have all confirmed that writing an ‘about’ section results in a headache of the very worst kind. So, with that in mind, here is my best guess as to what my potential clients would find relevant when looking for a wedding photographer. Currently based in Wales I have spent the last decade photographing weddings across the UK and {far} beyond its borders, but as much as I love travelling I also enjoy the comfort of a local wedding every now and then. Do get in touch if you’re looking for a creative and fun wedding photographer Cardiff.

South Wales is an incredible place to get married in. The variety of architecture and land and seascape offers an incredible scope of wedding venues, ranging from historic castles to barns and then from modern hotels to temporary marquees, tipis and festival tents (I’ve seen it all by now!) and there is so much more to the Welsh landscape than the most obviously picturesque beaches and cliff tops! At this point I suggest you flick through my portfolio and have a look at the weddings I photographed in the spectacular Brecon Beacons, Gower Peninsula, Cardiff and Pembrokeshire coastline to name only a few of the most iconic places I’ve shot in.

I feel lucky to work in such a beautiful country and from the number of my London & international clients of that choose South Wales as the wedding location of their dreams, I’m guessing I’m not the only one in love with this part of the world.

After gaining my masters in Architectural and Urban Design from Wroclaw Technical University I worked for a short period of time as an architect before beginning my wedding photography adventure in 2009. I spent 3 years shooting for portfolio and learning the skill to then become a full time professional wedding photographer in 2012. It is fair to say that it has taken over my life ever since. Being a good photographer requires practical and theoretical knowledge of art and design as well as technical skill. What I love so much about wedding photography is that these qualities both depend upon and express something social, intuitive and very human. I have a passion for all things beautifully designed that extends beyond well-crafted objects and photographs to the patterns and balance I find in people’s {love} stories, relationships to one another and life. There is something incredibly special about being given the privilege of photographing a wedding and becoming responsible for a person’s most precious memories. Apart from weddings I really enjoy the creative engagement sessions that I have prior to the event with my wedding couples. We often develop this into a half-day or day in a meaningful (or just staggeringly beautiful) location, with breaks for food, outfit change and touch ups if required. We laugh a lot and liberate ourselves from all potential worries related to ‘being photographed on a wedding day’. I recommend the pre-wedding shoot to everyone who feels non-photogenic or stressed out in front of the camera. It is also valuable to anyone who would simply appreciate some creative portraits with their loved one.
