Full Description
Weddings are my favorite type of photography. My aim is to take photos that will make your eyes water. That will bring a huge smile on your face and all unforgettable emotions from the day. Choosing me to be your wedding photographer is my biggest privilege. You can expect me to be there, but to be quite transparent. This allows me to capture the most natural emotions and moments that you will cherish for life. I don’t pose people. I wouldn’t want people to feel awkward and uncomfortable. Instead, I walk around with my camera and blend in as if I was one of the guests. I love people and love chatting about your wedding plans and details. Why don’t you visit my website and contact me via there to have a chat about your wedding plans? I would love to hear all about it!

Pleasure to deal with
Could you find a photographer more of a pleasure to have with you on your wedding day? No. Aga is a pleasure to deal with from initial enquiry to receiving the final shots. Value for money is excellent, really good and our album is far better than anything we could have expected. We cannot possibly recommend Aga highly enough. We started out with a great wedding photographer and ended up with a new friend. Aga, you are a total pleasure and we are eternally grateful to you. Big love �

Aga was so attentive and helpful to our needs, creative and made our day special
I would like to thank Aga from myself and my husband. She firstly had to fill in and photograph our wedding with only a few weeks notice and she did a wonderful job. She was so attentive and helpful to our needs and made the photos one less worry on our big day. She took some lovely creative photos and really captured our special moments from 10am to 10pm. We can not thank her enough for all the hard work she did that day. I would highly recommend.

We knew Aga was a photographer for us from our very first meeting
Well what can I say... We knew Aga was the photographer for us from our very first meeting. We had a coffee, good old chat and a laugh. On our wedding day she was punctual, professional and did everything we asked. We felt so calm and relaxed with her that at times we didn't even remember she was there, which was perfect for the photos because it meant we were natural. So happy with the results. Thank you. X

Stunning photos
Aga was so lovely on our wedding day, at one point my husband said she was kicking spiders out of shot. She wasn’t afraid to get stuck in with us and our guest and what a plus the photos were absolutely stunning! Thank you so much

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I was a new, staying home mum with little babies around when I realized I want to capture every single moment of their lives before they grow up. In fact, I always loved photography, always loved art and trips to exhibitions and museums, this only gave me a chance to finally start turning my dreams into reality, I didn't even realized​ when I totally fell in love with my camera and thought of making a career out of this.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I try to find nice light indoors if possible but if the venue doesn't allow I would recommend organizing post wedding session in a ​chosen location.

What about your business are you most proud of?

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

When my couples get in touch I always ask them to tell me their vision of their wedding, we either meet or call via FaceTime/ Skype to get know each other. When everybody is happy with all details and service provided we sign the contract and arrange the booking fee to be paid. One month before the wedding we get in touch again and go through the day step by step, making sure we both are on the same page. I write down all the addresses, postcodes, phone numbers, timings and a list of required shots and. The day before I text to say I am coming in the morning and wish all the best and see you tomorrow.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

creative, natural, beautiful, approachable, professional

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

attention to detail

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

My favorite moment is when the bride is walking down the aisle and the groom is waiting impatiently to see her for the first time. His reaction when he finally sees her. I love seeing the bride dancing with her father as well.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

One of the brides receiving a diary that groom was writing for her since they met, he always knew she was the one.
