My name is Agata and I am a Brighton based photographer.
I discovered my interest in photography when I bought my first DSLR to capture the first days of my little boy. I soon realised it’s not the camera that takes good photos, but the person behind it. As the saying goes, ‘the music is not in the violin’. After being told I had a natural eye, I became eager to learn all aspects of photography. It soon became a real passion, not a day passed without me itching to grab my camera and head off on a new photographic adventure. I am still like this today, although my little boy is not so little any more and I can see his face change when mummy reaches for the camera!
A lot of my skills are self-taught, often practising existing skills and experimenting with new techniques on my own but I have also studied photography at college to further my knowledge and gain formal qualifications.
When taking photos I’m always prepared to go that extra mile to get ‘the’ shot. I will not hesitate to get down on my hands and knees, lay on the floor, stand knee deep in the freezing sea, all in pursuit of that special image. I take great pride in the service I offer and client satisfaction is always at the top of my list.
While working with people I strive to create a relaxing and fun atmosphere, stiff ‘say cheese’ poses are the ones to avoid at all costs. My aim is to deliver natural looking photographs, showing not only your pretty face, but also your real personality and unique characteristics.

Don't just take my word for it... Following are testimonials from some of my recent clients. What they say about me and the photos they have commissioned has more impact than anything I can say. Just knowing they are happy with the results and willing to recommend me to their friends and colleagues makes my job so satisfying...
Have had 2 shoots with Agata now, second one with out newborn baby. Absolutely brilliant, makes you feel ease and produces amazing results. Highly recommend Agata for all types of photography required. She even came back the next day as baby wouldn't go to sleep!! 5 star service! Thank you for making it so easy Agata.

Seriously The most wonderful photographers. Kind, generous, thoughtful , unobtrusive, talented and felt like part of the family. Never known such professionalism but such warmth at a significant life occasion for our family.
You listened to what Molly and rob wanted, grasped the vision for their wedding and the results are truly spectacular! We couldn’t have asked for more perfect photographers ❤️ thank you xx

Where to start, there are so many good things I can say. From the very first time we met Agata and Richard they made us feel completely at ease during our first ever photo shoot. We initially did an engagement shoot with them and the photos they got from that, just WOW! the day was kind of grey and overcast but they managed to get the most out of the 10 minutes of sun and got the most beautiful photos. After that we booked them straight away for our wedding back in July. Throughout the entire process Agata listened to everything we wanted and also visited the venue so she could make a plan for the big day. On the wedding day she was just brilliant, I didn’t even know she was there half of the time! And throughout bridal prep she was just so calming and captured gorgeous photos. The wedding and reception photos are stunning and she has made the weather look way nicer than it was! I just really can’t recommend them highly enough, she got all the photos we wanted and more. The photos were the most important part for us (aside from being married!) and they definitely delivered above and beyond what I expected. Thank you so so much xxx

Thanks for all the photos they look amazing. We never thought you were going to put in so much effort!
Every one of them is amazing, thank you so much. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Of course you can use the photos (will be a waste not to show your wonderful work).
Hope everything goes well for you and Alfie.
