About me:

Born in Poland, I immigrated to the U.S. in 1996, and now make my home in Connecticut together with my wife, two wonderful sons, blind Labrador Retriever, and frisky tiger cat.

Photography has been a passion of mine for decades, and I have been a full-time Professional Photographer since 2011. I focus and Specialize in Documentary Weddings and Lifestyle Portraiture. I love to interact with people. That is why I am very good at capturing the biggest as well as the smallest moments, which happen during the wedding day or while photographing families in their surroundings.

I am a perfectionist and always strive to deliver the best images. I pay attention to the backgrounds, composition and direction of light. Simply, Photography is my passion and I do this with the pride and heart.
I describe my style as traditional Romantic Photojournalism with a touch of Modern. My photographs are not only images - they tell a story. I focus on human emotion and observe people’s reactions in the moments which are happening around me. I have experience photographing a diverse array of weddings from couples who practice many different faith and community traditions, and I enjoy capturing those wonderful, romantic moments of brides and grooms from around the world as well as right here in Connecticut.

I started photographing back in Poland in the early 80’s. That was black and white 35mm film all developed from start to finish by myself in the darkroom. In ’90, I started experimenting with color negatives but my college education in the IT field took priority. The opportunity to rediscover photography came when I arrived in the U.S. in 1996.
In 2009, my family and I finally settled in CT, and I decided to pursue my dream career as a Professional Photographer.
I took Fine Art classes at Northwestern CT Community College and got my Photography Certification in summer of 2011. I joined PPA Professional Photographers of America and CTPPA Connecticut Professional Photographers Associations, and I won Awards for photographs I created within associations and Juried Shows. In 2015 the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) , Artistic Guild of Wedding Photojournalist Association (AG|WPJA) and International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) accepted my application and I am a proud active member of most exclusive professional associations in the World.
Professionally, I use a Digital Camera system, but if I have a chance I still shoot a roll of 35mm or medium format film, which I then develop and scan. Because I am so passionate about creating the finest images, I constantly strive to improve my style and learn something new each day.
