What We Do
Whether I'm working or traveling the world, photography consumes my life - and I love it! My father was a wedding photographer and continues to be a huge inspiration in my life. At the age of 8 he gave me my first film SLR camera; I photographed my first wedding by his side that same year for a family friend.
Over the years a hobby turned into a passion which turned into a career. I really love what I do and that dedication makes a world of difference in the quality of work I am able to deliver. They say if you do what you love you'll never work a day in your life and I could not agree more.
Wedding photography is about more than just beautiful photographs. The relationships I've built over the years with all of my amazing clients is one of my favorite parts of my job.
My style is dynamic, I don't play by any rules. Some situations call for black and white and some are meant to be enjoyed in vivid color. Certain parts of the day are best captured as candid moments I do not interfere with whereas other parts I steps in with advice and my expertise in posing couples for formal photos or family portraits.
As a photographer specializing in weddings and engagement sessions I primarily serve the Greater NYC Area but I am open to further destinations. Since my business is based on referrals from happy clients I make customer service my priority – don’t believe me? Check out my testimonials!

What people are saying
Jakub was my wedding photographer 2 weeks ago – I could not imagine better service! He is very nice and patient and what is the most important, he knows what he is doing. He sent me photos 3 days after my wedding ! When most people wait months to get photos. And I am very surprised how beautiful photos he got. I do not like myself on pictures usually but on his I love all off them ! They are so beautiful that I have big problem to decide which ones to put on the walls 🙂 I would recommend him to everybody who wants to have professional service and beautiful high quality photos !
Jakub is a life-saver! Our first photographer fell through just 3 weeks before our wedding, but now we’re glad that happened, because we got Jakub instead. From the start, he was professional, patient, and committed to getting the best shots. We had three locations – a church, NYC skyline, and our reception venue. I was concerned about not knowing how to pose for the photos, but he graciously directed us to the best positions and angles for a variety of backdrops. We had a couple hitches along the way, including a limo with a broken AC, but he was patient and helpful through all of it. (He even made sure that the drivers had the right address for the photo shoot when we forgot about it.) Finally, the photographs themselves are breathtaking. Jakub is skilled at both portraits and candids, and had a real eye for a good photo. There were a couple times we thought we should leave a particular spot, but then Jakub would urge us to just give it one more shot, and we’re so glad he did. I generally don’t like overly dramatic wedding photos, but with his guidance the pictures looked both natural and unique. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for high quality photography and an awesome guy to work with!
Jakub is an amazing photographer! We had an engagement session& the wedding event with absolutely great experience, professionalism, and wonderful ideas for shoots by with him. Made our day very special by capturing memories for a lifetime to have! We would definitely recommend him to family and friends and anyone that wants the best.
If you’re looking for a fun and friendly wedding photographer in New York who will provide you with romantic and vibrant photos then look no further. From the moment we came across Jakub’s website we were impressed and that impression never faded. Jakub responded to our enquiry very quickly and catered to all our requirements. He was incredibly professional and polite throughout and gave us detailed information. Jakub’s passion for a job he loves is reflected in the wedding photographs he produces -they really do tell a thousand words and you will want to look at your photographs over and over again throughout time. I would recommend him as a top grade photographer to anyone! Thank you Jakub!
Seriously a great photographer. So easy to work with, thoughtful, creative, and talented. We were so pleased with our wedding photos. The poses he arranged us in look amazing, even if at the time you are not sure, just trust him!
All we can say is WOW! My fiancé and I had our engagement session with Jakub yesterday and he is truly amazing!! We have never done a photo shoot and felt a bit strange poseing for pictures but he made us feel so comfortable, making our experience so much fun, we didn’t want it to end! He showed us some teasers during the session and we couldn’t believe how beautiful the pictures were coming out (and we are not picture people at all)! Now we are patiently waiting for the finished product which we do not doubt will blow us away! So so happy we got to work with Jakub, if you book him, you will not be disappointed! Thank you again Jakub!
