Story

It was a special day for us. Priscilla and David (the couple in the photo) were very committed to making things look beautiful and happen at their own slow rhythm. Although they were getting married in mid-September and the evenings were already cool then, they spent most of the evening outside their hall. They played and danced under garlands on patterned carpets, surrounded by their friends who genuinely rejoiced at their wedding. We caught this frame watching them on the dance floor.

We took this photo completely spontaneously. Back then, we photographed open-air dances. At one point, friends surrounded the bride and groom and started swinging with them during the slow song. We always ask our couples not to pay attention to us during the coverage and we advise them not to look into the lens and instead focus on themselves, on celebrating and enjoying an important event that is the wedding. This is universal advice that allows us to catch natural emotions in such moments.

Photographer Poland Canon R6 Sigma ART 35mm
For years, we have been creating tender love stories. We are looking for beauty in everyday life and small gestures, we appreciate diversity and photograph with open minds. We live and work together. We love good stories about people. We photograph to tell our own – those about crazy expeditions and daily routine. About two people who found each other in this big world. About bare feet on the dance floor, tears on the cheeks, and whispered marriage vows.
