I’m back from Turkey already. It was wonderful to see a best friend getting married. It was incredibly lot of emotions over there. But I will write about this in another post along with their photographs.:)
While I was in Turkey, I got a sensational message, that another pictures that I’ve made some time ago for a fashion designer from Glasgow will be published in a fashion magazine! I could not believe in this dream! In the past three months I’ve had three publications!
Not so long ago I was sitting on the sofa looking over fashion magazines and dreamed of that one day my photos will be in them. Dreams finally come true! It is all about believe in yourself, listen to your heart and work hard. It all pays off !
I will say: it’s not easy sometimes. There are days when you have enough, when you think of what you’re doing does not make sense. Because others are better. The tears of fear flowing down your cheeks.
But somewhere at the bottom of your heart, this desire, hope and passion of doing what you love in spite of all, glows in you, and allows you to survive this time of the fall and soar higher.
I know that I’ll fall again and again, that the black dragon will swallow me in the darkness of fear and doubt for many times, but I also know that every time after fall I will rise higher, better and stronger.
This is a normal process. Now I know. So believe in yourself, love, and fulfillment of the dreams.
I found the text below, on the Internet which perfectly embodies what I wanted to write to you.
I do not really know where to start today’s post. I think I start that this is a very special post for me.
Today I present you a very close person to me, and her future husband.
With Demet I met eight years ago. We did not get along immediately. At some point, something snapped, and yet we are best friends. And so it is to this day! Today I can say that Demet is not just a friend to me. She is like a sister, like Guardian Angel who is with you in good and bad times. She just is – and for that I thank her very much!
Some time ago – three years ago to be exact, I witnesed a spark between two people. Without thinking a lot I arranged them to know each other a bit better. So yes, I can easily be named matchmaker.
Today, in two days this two will tie the knot. I am enormously happy and counting down the hours until my flight to Turkey. Their wedding will take place in Istanbul where from Demet is. Ladi’s family will arrive from the Czech Republic where he come from. Woow what a amazing mix of cultures! It will be wonderful !
I love you dears!! I know that you are reading this and I already can’t wait to see ya ! I’m thrilled!
I invite everyone to look at their engagement session. And a place where this whole story started!
Today just a quick post with the photos of the beautiful baby boy who visited me two weeks ago. No words can discribe how cute and good boy he was on our session!
I’m going back to editing because just two days left to my flight to Turkey where I’m going to photograph wedding of my amazing best friend ! And I really want to show you their Engagement session!
So enjoy these photos today and stay tuned for the next post !
Finding the right person for your life is a wonderful thing. There is no doubt that these two in my today’s post, are meant to be. The love in between them you can feel miles away. There is so much passion, warmth, madness and romance in them that I could photograph them all day and night long!
Their engagement session we started with a visit to the venue where the wedding is going to take place (already tomorrow!) in Kirknewton Stables. It is a wonderful place located about 10 miles away from Edinburgh. If you’re looking for the venue with the vintage country style – this one’s for you!
Then we moved to the forest where Gill and Craig feel best. They often go camping on the weekend, so it was perfect place to shoot. As at this time of the year there was still not so much green around so we made sure to add some romantic and fun things to our photos that will show Gill and Craig’s personalities.
I think that words are superfluous in this post. You have to see yourself how beautiful this couple is.
Enjoy the pictures and animations with more images at the end of the post.
Are you ready for their wedding?
I can’t wait! All my equipment is ready to document this wonderful magical moments tomorrow!
See you there!
What If there was a competition for the couple who have ability to make laugh each other these people would certainly take high positions!
Gillian and William had their first date at a restaurant Amaro in the center of Edinburgh. Both are cheerful people and smile does not go out of their faces. Even the rainy weather that we had on our engagement session didn’t spoil their mood!
They are big fans of the card game called Bridge so when I found out about it I ask them to use the cards on their engagement session. I like to show personalities of the people I photograph. Everyone have a different story and that’s what i love, and it’s beautiful!
We completed our session with the walk to Princess Garden where, after the dinner Gillian and William ended their date.
Their wedding is this Sunday in a beautiful place The Merchant Hall in Edinburgh. Definitely will be a lot of smile, emotions, and of course beautiful pictures because the place has a lot of beautiful spots to photograph.
I can not wait already !
Hope these couple will also put the smile on your face.
Last week I have missed a post here but just because I want to keep quiet and share with you this amazing news!
I am very happy to announce that today was published another magazine (Flawless Magazine) with my pictures in it!! So over the moon!!
This publications is very special to me as the concept and styling was created by me. Of course that wouldn’t happend if not my dream team that i have been working with on this project!
To create “Fontange symphony” I was taking inspirations from the few things – movies (Edward Scissorshands, Sweeny Todd), the hairstyle which have been very fashion at the time of XVII century (The orginal name for these styles is “Fontange“) but mainly I wanted to base on XVII century fashion style which I love so much!
I’m so proud to have these photos published! Thats the way you start monday
Hope you gonna like it too!
I will just post sneak peak here but more photos you can check on the magazine website here (Page 53! ) …

Have a Fabulous day!
And here is a photo from the backstage!
Thank you Peter for doing the backstage! Yes! Backstage is coming soon and it’s been created by Studio 5 Photography
Spring certainly came for sure. And like every year, I think that many of us have revived and thought about dropping a winter belly which protect us from the cold. Winter this year didn’t want to go away for a long time but fortunately it’s gone now. Today my post will be about a person who is not only the mother of two wonderful boys but also a woman of success, especially her personal success. Like most women after childbirth and in this case after two children, struggles with the problem of loosing pounds which where added during the pregnancy. Urszula – that’s her name, is a graduate of the Academy of Physical Education in Krakow, specializing in physical-corrective compensatory gymnastics and many other sports related experience, has decided to not only help herself but also other people who do not know how to do it. Her experience of the sport as well as the psychological experience will allow you to achieve success in the effort for a beautiful figure and a healthy life. For this reason she created a web page where she publish exercises, diet, and various interest in the field of living a healthy life. Everyone will find something for yourself. I think that is an excellent site to mobilize everybody!
How i know Ula.
I did not mentioned before that Ula lives in London. She has been in contact with me via e-mail but because of the distance we couldn’t meet. Until I have been coming back from Poland where I was photographing two weddings last year. We ware driving down to Poland so on the way back I could stop in London and meet Ula.
It was a very spontaneous and quick session because after a long car trip we were very tired.
Ula is amazing, beautiful and confident woman! She knows what she wants in life. She is very determined and consistently in pursuit of her goals. I admire her very much. I have to say that looking over at her web site really motivates me every day to maintain a healthy lifestyle. She is also very welcoming and warm person. I did not have the opportunity to know her sons but I know from her photographs that the boys are so cute pies . I hope to catch up this year because we plan to meet again for some sort of sessions and I hope that I can do some photographs with her family too
Here are a few natural photos of Ula and also Ula in action! I wouldn’t be myself if I did not ask for couple of stylized portrait of her. Ula have incredibly intense face that stops everyone for a moment. We did not have many options on the field where we were shooting along like almost no accessories. We had to use a hair band and pin the hair with a artistic messy touch also we put some red lipstick which we found in the car for more drama.
I hope you will like the effect So the last two pictures are a little different from the others.
Thank you Ula for being such a amazing person and share your passion and experience with others! Lots of love! xoxo
Today i say be FHB !!
What an exciting day yesterday! Some people already know because I shared this information on my Fan page on the Facebook but of course it would be a mistake to not to share it with you here officially. So, yesterday for the first time my work has been published in a fashion magazine! I am very happy because it is the culmination of my hard work which I put on so far on what I love the most – the photography. Of course, I would not be here if not true fans, family, friends and people with whom I worked so far and I hope to continue to work with Thank you for being for me.
I hope this is the beginning of the success and that I will have more occasions to share my published work with you.
Other then that yesterday I photographed the first wedding in this wedding season. Beautiful couple, stunning venue, and already I can not wait to share these photos with you!
I’m still leaving the dream!

I met with Zoe and Ross last week for their engagement session and to discuss the last details of their wedding which will take place tomorrow at the Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh. I’m very excited because this is the first wedding this year for me. I’m even more excited today because I want to share with you pictures that we made last week.
Zoe and Ross have chosen Colinton Dell as their fav location. This beautiful park is a special place for them, because they often go out for walks.
You can tell the weather was awful. It was cold, snowing, wet but despite that we had a lot of fun.
Thank you for a great time in that morning and congratulations on the engagement. Already can not wait for tomorrow when I see Zoe in a beautiful dress. I am convinced that she will look phenomenal!
