Beata English Photography


My recipe for a fantastic photograph goes something like this: three parts joy, one part spontaneity, two parts candor – maybe a dash of handmade, or a pinch of vintage styling. I’m afraid I’m allergic to poses and smiles held so long your face aches. I love shooting brides and grooms that are super excited to get married, have style and lots of unique wedding ideas.
