MY NAME IS PAWEŁ KOTAS
I am a professional photographer with many years of experience.
I make wedding, family and commercial photography and I lead photography workshops. I travel in my free time, always bringing home memories – many of them in a form of pictures. I live in Warsaw, but I can shoot for you wherever you are, or want to be.
I believe that good photographs are the ones in which emotion of a given moment has been captured forever.Moments pass by so fast, but the photos stays. They are like story of your life – speaking by itself, without many words. Selecting a person to assist you in those exceptional moments of life is never easy. It is not only their professionalism or equipment that matters, but first of all – their personality, ability to cooperate and melt into a given situation.
I address my offer to the most demanding customers, who really care about exceptional quality and very memorable photos. My motto is: quality over quantity. I value authenticity without artificial posing and natural beauty with its artistic taste. What else? Good humor and friendly atmosphere – guaranteed. Always for free. See you in the session!
I LIKE TO TRAVEL
Paulina & Michał
„How to describe Paweł in one word? A PROFESSIONALIST!!! We’ve known his works for a long time, so the choice of a photographer for our after-wedding photo shoot was more than obvious. Everything went well and in nice atmosphere, with a great deal of freedom, accompanied by appropriate guidance and full professionalism. Paweł was able to select good place and light, advice on every stage of the session and help to achieve a wonderful effect. Cooperation with Paweł was just perfect and pleasant. The only thing that left to say is – WE RECOMMEND HIM!!! :)))”
Sandra & Marcin
“Let me tell you: as far as photos are concerned, it is just enough to have a look at the website. I will not marvel at something that is so obvious and visible at first glance. What is more interesting, is the cooperation with the photographer itself. I am not a natural borne model for sure, and any posing whatsoever makes me feel embarrassed. But in this case, it was totally different. We were both feeling comfortable during the session. Well, we were even able to play with the whole situation, and it was all thanks to Paweł and his unconventional attitude to his work. Nobody asked us to jump and make other oddities that we didn’t want to (and we didn’t even have to mention that). We were feeling totally at ease, and even a bit concerned later on that due to this ease the photos would not be like we wanted them to be. But – they turned out even better! I guess I do not need to mention that despite this playful atmosphere, everything was 100% professional.”
Anna & Kajetan
“Paweł is a wonderful wedding photographer, a real pro. It becomes obvious for anyone who had a chance to see him in action. I can only add that he is also punctual, very conscientious and tactful. You can rely on him. Watching his photos is a great pleasure – all the most important moments are always there, and if you add high quality and authenticity of those captured moments to it, you’ll have a perfect set. And once you consider great cooperation with Paweł (also if you’re not a model), the only possible conclusion is this: that photographer really is worth recommendation.”
Bogna & Tomek
“Paweł is a photographer who immediately establishes great relationship with young couple. He takes fantastic shoots, and can easily convince people to his ideas in a very nice, compelling way. He is very professional, honest, and really passionate about photography. He was able to deliver a 100 % of what we had in our contract. We got our photos really fast. The session was fun, and we were patiently guided by Paweł. We do recommend him as a photographer.”
Marta & Wen-Fong
“Wonderful wedding photography!! We had our wedding coverage, as well as an outdoor session. We are truly delighted with the result. Pleasant and smooth communication with us, as a young couple. Our wedding guests appreciated Paweł’s discreet presence, as well as the fact that he was always on a right place, in a right time. The photos are just so unique. Their style mirrors the atmosphere of the ceremony. We highly recommend Paweł! We’ll surely use his services in the future, as we fully trust him as a photographer.”
Ewa & Dominik
“As soon as I saw Pawel’s wedding photos on his website (I found him via Internet), I knew he just had to be our wedding photographer. And I wasn’t disappointed! The photos are really beautiful, as you can see online. And, besides, our cooperation went smoothly, and all went well, just like it was stated in our contract. Paweł was practically invisible to me during the wedding ceremony, but it didn’t mean he wasn’t there! It was just the opposite: he managed to catch all the important moments, and thanks to that we have our beautiful memories for life. The pictures are alive, full of colours, joyful and touching. I can honestly recommend Paweł to anyone who’s looking for a photographer – he is going to meet your expectations, that’s for sure. And we want to thank Paweł once again – for such a wonderful capturing of this important day.”
Kasia & Dawid
“I do recommend cooperation with this photographer. Paweł is, first of all, a nice person to cooperate with :-) He devotes plenty of time to listening to expectations, he is very, very helpful as far as choosing a place and style of a session is concerned (which meant so much to us, because we were like babes in the woods ;-). And although he told us that it’s good to prepare a place for a session a little earlier, we funded him an attraction which was… looking for a perfect place in the day of shooting ;-) He managed the situation very well, but we do not wish him to experience it once again ;-))) Paweł has also shown us plenty of his earlier works, so that we knew and were able to predict the style of our wedding reportage. Just as other customers: I confirm that the photos were all done in a very discreet way, and all the important moments of the ceremony have been captured. The photos are just BEAUTIFUL :-) Choosing this photographer was the best decision that we took during the whole event. We DO recommend cooperation with Paweł.”
Dominika & Marcin
“I recommend this photographer. I am one of those fastidious clients, I’m afraid, and unfortunately really few amongst the so called “wedding photos” were appealing to me. But with Paweł, it was all a different story – he was open for our needs, almost invisible in the church and at the wedding party. He really empathized with us and melted into the atmosphere. We got the photos ready very fast. It was a very nice cooperation :)”
Jola & Bartek
“I would strongly recommend this photographer. We appreciated the fact that he can really listen, and the result of his work (the photos) is the most beautiful memory we have from this amazing wedding day. The photos are remarkable and originally processed. Full professionalism. We recommend Paweł!”
Marta & Artur
“WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND!!! Fully aware and taking responsibility for our words: WE RECOMMEND PAWEŁ!!! Very nice and trouble-free contact with the photographer, who was open for all the possible frills of a young couple. He seemed invisible and unobtrusive on the wedding ceremony, and the final effect of his work was just amazing, often positively surprising, and even causing jealousy of other couples:) WE RECOMMEND!!!”
