“Sometimes people ask me why I make videos for a living. I’ve come to a point where I realize my biggest motivator is showing people how important their relationships with their closest ones are. Healthy relationship can easily be taken for granted but in reality, it’s what makes life worth living for.
My father died when I was 19. He was the person who taught me the basics of video making. He was a professional musician and I remember asking him if I should become a musician as well.
His answer was: “If you can, don’t do it.”
Until much later I realized what he meant by that.
A true musician is not able to give up music. And today I know that I couldn’t give up filming. If it wasn’t my vocation, it’d definitely be my hobby.
We, people mostly don’t express our feelings the way we should. In a wedding, however, all the barriers come down.
It’s an unspeakable moment when a mother sheds a tear seeing her little princess walk down the aisle, hearing a father tell how proud he is of his son. Or the moments when the couple is lost into the arms of each other on the dance floor at the late hours of the night.
The whole concept of the wedding is just exceptional - two people who have somehow found one another and have decided to gather together all their friends and family to celebrate that. It is a feast for love!
I cannot guarantee you, the groom will burst into tears when he first sees his bride, but if he does, I’ll give my best to capture the moment in the purest way possible.
Every wedding has a story and to narrate the story is the DNA of my wedding videos.”
Super cute Ruby! I can't promise I will not eat her.

You never know where the road will take you.
I started with only one camera, so for the first 3 years I spent all my money on different camera equipment.
I got married with my beautiful wife Karolina when I was 20. Instead of going on a honeymoon, we decided to buy our very first video camera. In this photo we are celebrating our 12th dating anniversary.
I loved playing trumpet with all my heart, but could never trust my nerves on stage. I hope 9 years of music school gave me something I can use while making films.
Finished music school

I grew up in a nine-member family as the 5th child. Thanks to my dad I was able to record my very first video at the age of 10. From my childhood I remember having one special dream - to travel to Hawaii on day.
