Aga and Tomasz wedding day

This time soundpictures flew all the to Poland to capture Aga and Tomasz wedding day. I was worried about weather forecast as it was going to be stormy all day long. However those massive cloud formations allowed me to create some stunning images. Wedding had taken place just outside beautiful park Papieski" where I conducted rest of the wedding session photoshoot.








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.


Corrina & Tom Wedding - sneak peek.

I’m excited to share few photos from Corrina and Tom’s Wedding. The ceremony was held in Stockport Registry Office. After the ceremony we went to Fletcher Moss Park for a photo session. It was a pure pleasure to work with Corrina & Tom and here are some of my favourite photos. More to come :).


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.


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


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.


Emilia and Benjamin Wedding

I had an amazing time at Emilia and Benjamin's wedding that took place in Castillon-de-Castets, small village near Bordeaux in France. They made me feel as I was member of their family and I am very grateful for this. I will write larger post in near future describing this truly unique wedding. For now let me share little sneak peek with few images from their remarkable day.

We wish them all the best. Congratulations to a great couple.


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.
