Today we are excited to be sharing the work of Filipek Photography! Based in Calgary for the past 7 years, Piotr Filipek first fell in love with photography while completing his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Lethbridge. Moving to Calgary and opening his own studio, he has been working couples ever since.
Here’s what Piotr had to say about his Filipek Photography style
The first thing that I always tell my couples is that I’m not your typical photographer. I consider myself a storyteller – my images tell a story. I love meeting new people and sharing their experiences and their moments. All this goes back to my beginnings in photography when I worked as a photojournalist. My style is very much the documentary/ photojournalistic type images that showcase the candid moments which take place on the wedding day – those hidden moments that could easily be missed. Those are the moments that mean the most to my clients.When I work with my couples, I try to bring showcase as much of their personality as I can. Consultation meetings are very important, I like to meet with my clients as many times as necessary to really get to know them. My clients all become my friends in the end. We have so much fun and I feel that it is vary vary important to create a relationship of trust with my couples.
On your wedding day, there are no ‘do-overs’ and so as a photographer, you need to make sure your going to capture the perfect image. Your clients have to have that trust in you, when they trust you to do your job, then all they are focused on is each other and the most amazing day of their lives. Which is when the moments happen and I get the privilege to capture it for them.
