I’m Marie, and I have a passion for freezing beautiful moments in time through photography.
My firm belief is that beauty is inherent in everyone, and my goal is to capture and showcase that essence in my work. My approach revolves around infusing joy, maintaining a relaxed atmosphere, and honing in on the small details that make each day uniquely special.
While I’m currently based in Poland, I’m always up for a new adventure. Feel free to drop me a line if you’re considering a shoot outside of Poland. With a decade of travel experience, I’m well-versed in all kinds of exciting journeys.
Looking forward to the possibility of capturing your special moments!

What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?
My inspiration to become a wedding photographer comes from a profound idea I recently embraced—that all arts strive to become music. Understanding how music taps into our deepest emotions, my goal is to capture not just the visual elements of weddings but, more importantly, the genuine feelings they evoke. I aim to create images that reflect not only how the event looked but how it felt. Stay tuned for glimpses of my recent work over the next few weeks!
How would you describe your photography style?
My photography style is centered on capturing authentic emotions and telling genuine stories. Influenced by the belief that all arts aim to become music, I create inclusive images that celebrate individual stories. I value authenticity and aim to capture true emotions, adapting my style to each moment. Whether it’s dark and moody or light and airy, I love playing with light to enhance the mood and atmosphere in my photographs.
How do you ensure that your clients feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot?
I prioritize creating a comfortable atmosphere during photo shoots by valuing authenticity, embracing inclusivity, and adapting my style to capture genuine emotions. I believe everyone deserves their unique story documented, and my approach is centered on making clients feel at ease, allowing their true essence to shine through in every photograph.
How do you ensure that you capture all of the important moments on the wedding day?
Ensuring I capture all the important moments on the wedding day is rooted in my natural curiosity and diverse cultural experiences. As someone who appreciates and notices the intricate details, I am keen on observing and understanding the unique dynamics of each celebration. This, coupled with my ability to create a comfortable atmosphere, enables me to be present and capture the authentic essence of every significant moment during the wedding day.
What is your favorite part of the wedding day and why?
My favorite part of the wedding day is the preparations and the celebration itself. I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and it provides the perfect opportunity for me to capture the unique stories surrounding the bride and groom. These moments, filled with anticipation and joy, allow me to document not only the significant events but also the heartfelt stories of the people surrounding the couple.
