There is nothing better than wake up in the morning knowing that this day will be a day spend photographing wedding day of beautiful couple at most photogenic location in UK, Lake District.

Without further ado let's take a look at Laura and Philip wedding 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


Photography - Iwona & Arek - 20th Wedding Anniversary couple portrait session

Iwona and Arek are having their 20th wedding anniversary this year, and I encouraged them to do a photography session to celebrate it. They didn't have any professional pictures taken on their wedding day so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to capture their love 20 years later.

It can be a challenge for someone to look relaxed and natural in front of the camera if they aren't a professional model or if they're not used to it. It is often down to the photographer to put the couple at ease and get them to smile and relax. It is usually easier with girls as they know how to look pretty and enjoy posing. With guys, it can be more challenging as they don't want to do overly complicated poses and some might even think that posing is too feminine :). Offering some coaching can help, for example, showing them what to do with their hands and just allowing the couple to interact with one another. Usually they quickly discover that by simply paying attention to a few details, posing can be really simple and eventually (usually after the first setup/location) the ice breaks and we can roll on with the photoshoot.


We had a great time at the portrait session and my models ;) did brilliantly on the day. Iwona and Arek can proudly tell the story that bystanders were thinking that this was their actual engagment session. They were astonished to find out that this is their 20th wedding anniversary. :) Indeed, they don't look like they have 20 years worth of marriage experience.

Engagements, or post-wedding sessions are fun, but there is also something timeless about capturing a couple’s love years down the line. It's easy to get married but staying married is the real challenge. :) Well done guys. I'm proud of you sister.


Sup Yoga

I was delighted yesterday to photograph Magda performing sup yoga class at Salford Quays. She needed some images for her promotion materials. Big advantage over standard way of practicing yoga is that you usually do it outside at the fresh air. The beach sand, river or even in a swimming pool are ideal and fun locations. Doing it like that you gain the strength and flexibility required to maintain the balance and postures on fluid water such as the ocean or a lake. It look really fun and made me think of trying it myself!
