Biography


“I am a photographer and an image maker that can capture beauty, fashion and portrait in a wedding! ”

I am a father and blessed to be engaged to a very beautiful woman that is my rock in my life.

Weddings are amazing celebrations, consists of blocks of a great existence – love, laughter and new families.

Wedding photography could be informal, creative and fun. There aren't  any limits on how long a photographer should be there or any awkward poses. It should be fun day for couple on your wedding day so I can photograph your moments. The day is your day to feel awesome in front of camera and your wedding guests.

Why do I do it?

From my childhood I was dreaming to hold a camera and become a photographer. My father wasn't keen on my idea, however, he allowed me to use his film camera and take some portraits of him or my family. 

I bought my first film camera when I moved to London and started documenting landscapes and friends. I carried my dreams with me for so many years until one day in 2011, I decided to do something for myself and do what I dreamt to do for so many years. 

It was a massive change in my personal and professional life. Just believed in my dream to take my photography further and step up my skills.

I started with travelling and street photography, then I realised I become more people's photographer than any other types of photography. I love connecting with people to capture their emotion and freeze their moments.
