I AM A
HUSBAND, Friend, NATURE LOVER…
Why do I photograph weddings?
Husband, friend, teacher... a lover of nature and everything that nature gives us. All this and much more are all the photos I take with my camera - natural, spontaneous, full of love.
I love meeting new people, hanging out, talking... I enjoy long walks, especially with headphones in my ears and a bit of good rock ’&’ roll, punk, sometimes bumps into some acoustics and house in that chaos of a shuffle playlist... or sometimes I like just to lay back and enjoy a good whisky.
I adore all seasons, but still I would single out spring as my favorite (although I'm allergic to pollen and dust, but I adore it anyway).
I don't read the horoscope, but there are some characteristics of Aries that adorn me (stubbornness, without which I wouldn't be where I am today).
The answer to this question is very simple, and I will answer it with a quote from an unknown author:
“Don’t count the years, count the memories”
With memories we relive events from the past over and over again, we remember friends, relatives, family who are not with us... because after all, all we have left in life are
- MEMORIES -

How it all began?
I started photography late, sometime on my 22nd birthday, and with all the support that I needed – my wife (girlfriend back then).
Photography was a hobby at first , something to enjoy and to relax me. Shooting macro, landscapes… and then it all came together with my first payed photoshoot – a rock concert! 🎸
Imagine the happiness in my eyes.
Soon after that I met new people and started working at an online news portal as a photo reporter, which I still do and love every second of it! I met so many people, visited so many places, attended so many events… how can you not love it?
Soon came my first wedding, of my dear friends who wanted me to be their photographer and maker of memories.
There I found my passion for shooting people's emotions! I always love seeing those love looks, those smiles, those little nervous moments… it gives me the chills! Not only at your wedding, but I also get them again when I pick and edit your photos!
When that happens, and when you get the same chills looking at the pictures I took, I know I’ve made a good memory.
