MY STORY / maɪ ˈstɔːri/
Hi! I'm Marcin - a creative wedding photographer based in Corby, Northamptonshire. Originally, I come from Poland where I was working as a musician and classical guitar teacher. However, a few funny stories of my life have had an impact on my career choices and brought me to Northamptonshire. Do I regret this choice? No, after 10+ years of living in the UK I have to admit it was one of the best choices in my life. I still miss my country, family, friends but doing the work I love pays off this unfair bill a little bit... ;) I started my photography journey many years ago (when I was one of these rebellious teenagers...) but professionally, I started shooting in 2014. Regarding my style, I combine a mixture of documentary, fine art and classic black and white wedding photography. All of these, create timeless wedding reportages.
Other than wedding photography, I also run The Lighthouz Studio - Commercial Fashion & Product Photography Studio from Corby. Talking about my qualifications, I graduated Professional Photography from London's Institute of Professional Photography and I'm a qualified member of professional photography organisations such as:
- Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers
- Society of International Fashion & Glamour Photographers
However, creative wedding photography is the real passion of my life. Capturing the emotions of the day is a great honour but also a great responsibility at the same time. However, this is what makes this type of work so special and keep the adrenaline at the desired level... ;) Believe me or not but this job won't let you get bored.
My wedding reportages are full of natural emotions and storytelling pictures. I describe a day using a mixture of natural and artificial lights in a professional and unobtrusive way. I blend with a crowd to let wedding couples forget about posing.

How do you photograph weddings?
I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a guide to help you organise your day, the best moments for the couple photos, the different lights... and it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, invites...! On your wedding day, all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique. That's why I decided to photograph a non-traditional and laid-back wedding.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm Corby based in the UK and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.
When will we get our photos?
You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum of 3 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favourites, and also order prints!
How many pictures will we receive?
For an 8 hours coverage wedding, you will receive between 400 to 600 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story.
What's your typical process with a couple?
1. Introductory meeting
2. Pre-wedding meeting to discuss all details (usually a month before your wedding day)
3. Wedding Day
4. Post-wedding photoshoot (if required)
5. On-line gallery delivery (up to 3 weeks after your wedding)
6. Album delivery (up to 5 weeks after your wedding day)

“Working with Marcin was a pleasure. He met us for a pre-wedding consultation and was always quick to answer any enquiries. On the big day, he took some really lovely photos of our wedding. He was at the venue all day until late in the evening taking shots of our wedding party. This was exactly what we hoped for to capture the spirit of the day. Thanks very much, Marcin!
