Why I Love Weddings:

A special day filled with friends, loved ones, and joy provides an environment that is a pleasure to work in. On the day of a wedding everyone is looking their best and smiling, an ideal situation for a photographer. Time is taken to carefully pick out beautiful decor, venues, flowers, dresses, suits...there’s so much beauty! But the real beauty lies not in the material things but in the priceless, sincere moments occurring on that day. The joining of two families through a bonding act of love is an incredible sight. From the first look to the last dance, I am truly honored to have the privilege of capturing all the beautiful memories that happen. 

A Little Bit About Myself:

I am an artist at heart and a professional of my craft. I strive to reciprocate the beauty I see through my work and focus on precisely portraying not only the moment, but also the emotions surrounding it. The beauty that occurs in the moment is what drives me to achieve the highest quality photo possible, a true depiction of the instant. I have been pleasantly obsessed with photography for almost a decade specializing in wedding and beauty photography. I was originally born in Poland and gained my interest in photography through the inspiring artistic works of my mother. I remember participating in photography clubs in elementary school, before the popularization of digital photography. 

Most Memorable Wedding Moment:

Love is a very strong force, one that brings people together and can drive an individual to go far beyond themselves. The most memorable moment I experienced at a wedding was witnessing a newly married couple dance with their healthy four year old son. He had been born at 25 weeks and was now a healthy child with two loving parents. The love and dedication of these two people ensured that their premature baby turned into a fully functioning, loving human being. They inevitably went through many sleepless nights and more trouble than the average parent, but through their perseverance and love they have given their child a fair shot at life. 

My Photography Style:

"Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.” — Matt Hardy My style of photography can be described as journalistic, centered around beauty and emotion, and artistic. When shooting I am focused on the action, watching for priceless moments and exchanges of emotion. I am also thinking of lighting and location so I may pose the couple in a frame that not only accentuates the vibe of the couple but also uses the surrounding elements to produce the most compelling shot possible in the moment. I apply the techniques I have learned shooting fashion and events to provide a unique, artistic, and beautiful approach in my wedding photography. 

Other Interests:

Film making and playing music are both crafts I thoroughly enjoy. I have had the pleasure of producing short films, documentaries, and music videos. When I am not photographing or editing, I like to spend my time playing music and embarking on adventures outdoors. I am an avid supporter of the arts & music, dedicating my efforts towards the prosperity of local music as well as photographing music & arts festivals across the country.
