Call me “B”
My name is Blazej, but everyone calls me ‘B’. I have been a wedding photographer for over 10 years and enjoyed every minute of it.
My passion is visual storytelling, and I love capturing moments that tell an authentic story for my couples. My specialty is putting couples at ease during the wedding day to create unique, everlasting imagery.
FIRST CAMERA ENCOUNTER
My own story as a photographer started when I was just a kid. In 1998, my father gave me his treasured film camera. It wasn’t long before I became obsessed with becoming a photographer. In 2010, I started photographing weddings in Poland. Soon after, I moved to New York City, where I worked alongside many of NYC’s top wedding photographers until I started Soulmates Studios. I have photographed over 100 celebrations and have extensive experience with a variety of weddings from different cultures and venues in New York City, New Jersey, Hudson Valley, Long Island, and beyond.
I worked with several press agencies and a major newspaper. It is where I gained invaluable experience – so helpful on the wedding day.
In 2010, I started photographing weddings in Poland. Nine years ago, I moved to New York City. I was honing my craft during cooperation with one of Manhattan’s top studios. It taught me a great deal about New York City weddings. I photographed over 100 grand celebrations and have extensive experience with different cultures, weddings, and venues in New York City, the Hudson Valley, and Long Island.
I was hired for government assignments and was an official photographer for the Polish Mission to the UN.
My wedding photographs have received numerous awards from prestigious associations, including the Wedding Photojournalistic Association (WPJA), the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP), and Fearless Photographers. You can view all the award-winning photos here.
I am thrilled to share that my photographs have been featured in prestigious publications such as Modern Weddings, Mountainside Bride, Equally Wed, Hudson Valley Magazine, National Geographic Traveller, and Forbes. It’s been a great honor to capture and witness the beautiful love stories through my lens. Some of my photos have been used for editorial purposes.
Please take a look at my recent blog posts to see the photos’ aesthetic. I’m sure you like my candid approach, appreciation for beautiful light, and keen couple’ vibes.
