Ewelina & Tomek outdoor wedding photoshoot

The formula for a good outdoor wedding photography is quite simply. You need to know the craft, understand the lighting, choose a good location and obviously have a lovely, willing (to sacrifice:)) couple.
Recently Tom and I had a great time photographing Ewelina and Tomek’s wedding day. They got married in the Polish Church of Devine Mercy in Manchester. We have chosen the lovely Prestwich Clough and Drinkwater Park in Prestwich for the outdoor photo session. I’m familiar with this location as this is my favourite spot for a walk. It’s amazing what weather can bring into the mix when comes to photography. We had a sunshine bursting through the leaves, heavy clouds, rain, autumn colours started to appear and finally more rain and sunshine again.
Ewelina and Tomek were great, funny and cooperative. We kept going and had a great time despite changing weather conditions. Wishing you all the happiness and have a wonderful life ahead.


Emma & Carl's wedding sneak peek

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from Emma & Carl's wedding. It was a perfect day, beautiful wedding and happy people.

I had a pleasure to witness and capture those unforgettable moments. I would like to wish Emma & Carl a wonderful life together.

Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day. It was a great fun working with you, your family and friends.

Also a big thanks to Hollin Hall Hotel and its lovely staff for the cooperation on the day.

 


Karolina & Steven Wedding day

It was one of the smallest but also very spontaneous weddings we had chance been part of. Karolina and Seven got married in Town Hall registrars office. Shortly after the ceremony, we had (only) 30 min for wedding session around library and Town Hall area. Beautiful architecture help us to capture some moments between newly married and full of love couple. After a short walk, we all headed off for dinner followed by a party in one of the local pubs.


London's Christmas Lights

On Sunday 15 November, the inauguration of new Christmas lights took place on the iconic Regent Street in London. This is the first edition of the Timeless Elegance art installation designed by ATC Lighting Design on the streets in the British capital.

The Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Dodd, played a musical piece by Pierre Mussche from Musicom, composed specially for this occasion. Grand opening was followed by a party held at Lights of Soho gallery.  Clearly, this event was all about the lights!Read more


Better Bathrooms Christmas Party

This was my second year photographing Better Bathrooms's annual Awards and Christmas Party event. Exactly as last year, the entertainment this year was simply amazing. The event was held at Mercury Plaza Hotel in Machester and it was hosted by Jon Culshaw. This year's party was Gatsby themed and attention to details was astonishing. Read more


Everyone needs a headshot

The headshot is a specific type of portrait that clearly demonstrates a person's appearance with the aim of capturing their personality. They are typically used by models and actors but modern businesses often make use of this type of photography to represent their leaders and employees on various branding platforms. The rise of social media means that more and more people are using them to engage with a wider audience and can be the key to successful self-promotion.

The pictures below were shot outdoors instead of a traditional studio setup. The aim was to give those headshots more energy and a cinematic look. By using a lens with a long focal length, I managed to throw the background out of focus and this also helped to render the facial features more accurately without any distortion that can typically appear when using a wider lens. Also the autumn colors prevalent at this time of the year created a great backdrop and added a specific mood to these shots.


Katarina & Pavel

It was one of those warm and sunny autumn evenings at one of my favorite locations for outdoor photoshoot. Heaton Park is one of the most photogenic places I know of in close proximity to Manchester. Going there with very enthusiastic and full of love couple will guarantee that you will fill your camera memory card with plenty of images. If possible, arrange the session around golden hour, this will maximize your chance of success and the couple will love the photographs.
