I’m a wedding photographer and creative director based in Vancouver, British Columbia though home is wherever I make it and some of my most joyful memories have been created while traveling the world with my better half, Amy.
I was born in Poland and remember the way the cool air felt against my face even in summer. At age five my parents and I made our way to Athens, Greece where we had the rare treat of living by the sea on a rooftop with a panoramic view. It was my first time experiencing extreme heat and outdoor pools and running around a neighbourhood in my ultra cool teal short pants. We arrived in Canada the following year and since then I haven’t stopped wanting to explore every country, climb every mountain, and make friends with every cat I meet.
I wouldn't be the human, partner, and artist I am today without Amy who is my co-pilot and supports me in her role as Studio Manager. I see the world and relationships differently because of her. She has opened up a part of my brain that lets in challenge, patience, understanding, and the most delicious food. She helps me appreciate this tiny corner we've carved out for ourselves in Vancouver and is an artist in her own right. I'm so thankful to have her by my side as we navigate this business and this life together. She's looking forward to meeting you, too.
I enjoy creating real, living, and honest images focused on how a wedding day feels. The kind of images that start conversations; celebrate the in-between moments; hold their meaning after all is said and done; and serve as wildly wonderful reminders of the time you gathered all of your favourite humans in one place for one glorious day.
I play with light, layers, and reflections. I create with softness and hard edges. I like movement, understated moments, and all the ways in which people fit together. And capturing this while being wrapped up in the excitement of it all.
To that end, I blend in and start friendships before I put the camera to my eye. I give you the space to be yourselves. I read the rhythm of your day and adapt: whether I’m quietly observing a sweet moment between you and your mum, or joining you on the dance floor for the most epic party shots. I’m here to translate these moments into photographs that are as beautiful as they are true.
I’ve had the pleasure of amassing a small but mighty team of filmmakers who have been working alongside me since 2012. Wagner & Co. represents our love of cinema and doing weddings differently. While we work on our new branding and website, you can wander into our world of Super 8mm paired up with the most fun-loving humans dishing out their brilliant dance moves.
