How long have you been photographing weddings?
I have been covering weddings in London, Surrey, Hampshire and other parts of UK since January 2009, working alongside the greatest person I know, my fiancee and business partner Kaya.
What does wedding photography mean to you?
I believe my photography is an extension of my personality.I am more quiet and reserved, especially when I am at work, but this allows me to focus and capture all the candid moments that happen at the wedding day and follow all the action as it unfolds.
I love the fact that every job is different.Every couple has their own life and their own story.
Every wedding means new people to meet, new stories to
Photographing weddings is so exciting.You need to be documentary, portrait, landscape and food photographer, all at the same time!
It is a big challenge but it also gives me great joy.It makes me not only better photographer but also better person.
If I don`t shoot the wedding I often pick up my camera and go to photograph London architecture, or seeing my friends and capturing their kids.Everything involving photography makes me happy.It is such a pleasure to turn your passion into career.
So what is your style?
According to the traditional approach, wedding photography
features lots of formal line ups from a “shot list” passed down by

Well,times have changed!
Instead,I offer unobtrusive and relaxed approach.
For me the most important thing is that when you pick the wedding album up

Wedding day is full of little episodes that, when pulled together tell the beautiful story of an
Weddings in London or Surrey only?
Definitely not! My other great passion is traveling and I am happy to shoot anywhere in the world.Many couples prefer to have wedding abroad rather than in the UK.
So if you are planning to walk down aisle in out of the country, let me know.
What packages do you offer?
At the moment I offer one straightforward full day package which include two photographers (myself and my fiancee), beautiful presented DVD of high resolution images, DVD slideshow and online secure gallery.More extras are also available.This include engagement photo shoot in London or Surrey, photobooth and gorgeous hand made albums in various sizes.
