My name is Pawel Winnicki. I'm keen to capture something different with my photography, by using natural light to capture love, passion and all those subtle moments in between.
12: it may not seem like a lot, but it is. This is a story in 12 images, where each image as powerful as the next. These are beautiful, amazing moments from a life captured in timeless pictures. That's how I see this session with Kamila and her 32-week baby-bump.
It's not about having tens of images from the same moments because that just takes away the magic. It's about having enough to tell the best story. Enough to show emotion, love and beauty of the moment that we are in when having a photo session. It may leave some hungry for more, but that's good. That's a compliment! Enjoy:
Hi all. I've managed to find time to post the wedding pictures from Renata and Darren’s special day. They chose to have their wedding party at Elmers Court Hotel in Lymington on one beautiful August afternoon.
I was very lucky: the bride decided to have us there from the early morning of her day. We got the chance to capture some photos while she was having her hair and make-up done by the talented team from Raphael Hair and Beauty. On the way back to the car, I took one of my favourites pictures from that day. We were 'walking through' the laundry service as a shortcut to the car park when the bride spotted her reflection in a poster. In just a few seconds, she double-checked her hair and look after experiencing a very windy morning. There are two black and white images illustrating that moment; they are the perfect example of how well prepared the wedding photographer needs to be on that day – we never know what could happen or when and those shots can't be posed. They represent the photojournalist style of my work and that's why I love them so much.
The wedding ceremony and evening venue were full of love, happiness and positive energy. I hope you can see that on my picture below! Enjoy:
Meet Kamila: she contacted me because she wanted a photography session during her sixth month of pregnancy.
I used the rest of the available light at about 3pm one December afternoon. We managed to get some really nice shots and portraits of Kamila and her cute baby-bump. She is such an amazing woman and she has a smile that never leaves her face. I was keen to show that her pregnancy makes her even more beautiful, full of joy and love for every day with her little miracle.
She described the feeling in such a perfect way under one of those picture on her Facebook gallery:
"And the bond between us now... When I felt him kick and respond to my touch, it felt like a miracle."
On our second trip to Cuba, we chose Playa Pesquero near Guardalavaca for our holiday destination. It's an amazing place with a beautiful beach and some of the most stunning sunsets you'll ever see.
This place is perfect for any photography session, including beach engagement, beach wedding, and after the wedding, location / trash the dress session.
It's no secret that Cuba currently is the best value location for destination weddings in the Caribbean. Almost all of the hotels in Cuba offer free wedding packages and great incentives to couples for booking their wedding party in their resort. And if you're looking to make your wedding extra special, there's also the brilliance of live Cuban music.
There is nothing more romantic than having a Cuban musician play at your destination wedding. There’s just something about Cuban music that makes you fall in love every time you hear it. You can listen to a live band, in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and you'll take home even more unforgettable memories.
So today, I would like to show you one of my favourite wedding pictures that I took during my holiday. I had seen at least four weddings while I was there. Enjoy:
It was an amazing experience to be a part of a Hen Night, at least for a moment! Lots of fun, girls, and me photographing them while they were cheering for the bride-to-be, Renata, who was just about to get married.
Everything was secret, including the place - Hotel De Vere Grand Harbour, Southampton - and the guest list, and I was there as the photographer. The hotel is one of the most luxurious places to stay in Southampton. It's also the perfect place for a wedding venue.
Renata's sister chose the best available apartment for their party with a stunning view of the sea and the harbour. It was great to be part of their hen night experience and I hope you’ll consider me as your photographer if you have one! Enjoy the pictures:
Here are some photographs from a pre-wedding session with Renata and Darren, which took place in Hamble, Southampton. It wasn't a perfect day for outdoor shooting, so for most of the session, we hid in one of the most amazing pubs I've ever been in: 'The King and Queen.'
We were lucky enough to find a lot of space there, so we could produce these stunning shots without bothering anyone there. I hope you like them. Enjoy:
I'm pleased to share with you pictures of Natasza, James, and their wedding venue Marwell Hall in Eastleigh, Hampshire. I'll let the pictures tell the story of this stunning location and beautiful couple! Enjoy:
