Photography is better when bearded
Hi, I’m Radek - the guy behind the beard and a wedding photographer in Manchester, the North West or wherever my work sweeps me away to.
I’ve always been a creative person with a vivid imagination and an eye for beauty. I have a talent for spotting meaningful moments in the world around me. No matter how small, inconspicuous or unremarkable they seem on the surface.
When I was 10 years old, I bought my first camera. This was the beginning of my most wonderful journey yet.
I discovered an interest in landscape and nature photography. This fed my soul and sparked a love for travel.
Here Comes the Bride
It was when I photographed my friend’s wedding that I discovered something profound in the action. The events, the emotions and connections between families and friends. The very things a wedding photographer should see. My approach is to put you and your guests at ease so you can be yourselves. Your favourite wedding pictures will be those where you forget I’m there. When you’re enjoying the company of your loved ones and have forgotten about my camera.
Speaking Your Language(s)
If you hadn’t guessed from my name, I’m originally from Poland. I've lived in the UK for years and call Manchester my home. As well as being your wedding photographer, I’m proud to contribute my language skills to your wedding day. I can communicate plans, discussions and instructions in both Polish and English. This removes the need to source an interpreter, saving you time and costs. "Twoje zdrowie" to that!

We have been wanting to give our feedback for our experience with BeardedCamera photography for some time and are glad to finally be able to share this. In summary Radek was fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed working with him to create the types of photographs that we had dreamed of for our wedding day and they certainly came true. Although it rained on our wedding day, it did not spoil a single moment and if anything our photographs were more beautiful than we could have imagined as Radek used their artistic expertise to design some stunning photographs using the rain drops. All our guests at the wedding commented on how friendly yet discrete the photographer was during the day allowing him to capture some truly amazing moments during the day that we were really impressed by. Radek provided a wonderful service, helping us to capture some really special moments from our wedding day and we would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family in the future!
Thank you again,

Could not recommend BeardedCamera highly enough. From start to finish professional and creative. A pleasure to work with on our wedding day. Our friends and family cannot believe how good the album is. We've been told that they've never see anything like it before.
He captured the day perfectly and we get to relive it every time we look through our amazing album.

We had the pleasure of Radek and his amazing photography skills photograph our wedding.
From the initial meeting, he was very calm and friendly and made us feel at ease. He put our minds at rest with any questions we had.
On our wedding day, he arrived with plenty of time before the ceremony to photograph the venue and grounds and also the groom.
He was then with us all day (not that we knew it!) and captured the most beautiful unobtrusive shots. Our photos are a perfect mix of posed group shots, creative shots and natural shots of us and the guests. They tell a story of the whole day.
Everyone at our wedding commented on how professional he was and the pictures speak for themselves. We still find ourselves browsing through them, we love them!
Thank you Radek

Thank you Radek for providing us with such beautiful images of our marriage last June. The day went by so quickly and there was so much to take in, but you managed to capture every moment and we will treasure those memories for forever and a day. The album you gave us was so beautiful and we have had so many compliments when sharing it with friends and family. We were both quite nervous about having so many photographs taken initially, but on the day we hardly noticed you were there and the result was hundreds of beautifully natural images which really tell our story.
Thank you so so much,

JOY & PAUL
We are both so pleased with our photos and the album of our wedding day. You were loved by everyone and it was lovely to have you share our special day!
I was worried at first about having 2 photographers but do not regret it for a second, you blended in with our friends and family and your work is gorgeous. We had so many positive comments from our guests about you too.
I personally love the way you captured all the little things and appreciated how much effort we had put into personalising the day, as well as the "standard wedding shots" which you expect to see.
We would, and do, highly recommend you to others when we can and would definitely hire you again for other future events if needed.
Thank you so much for helping us treasure our memories of the best day ever!

My husband and I worked with Radek for our engagement pictures and for our wedding day. On each occasion, he went above and beyond our expectations. He is extremely talented and has an eye for seeing things that will make absolutely fantastic pictures. Our engagement pictures and wedding pictures were both great. We are so glad that we have such gorgeous pictures to remember the most important day of our lives. He understand how important a role he is playing and he takes it very seriously. It is also clear though that he truly loves what he do. There is no one that I would have rather had capturing our wedding day!
I would absolutely without hesitation recommend him to any couple!!

After seeing pictures of a friends wedding we knew immediately this is who we wanted to shoot our wedding. Very professional, but easy to work with. Amazing and natural photos (hardly noticed him all day!) and captured all the key moments of our wedding in perfect style.
Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Radek is focused and has a clear idea of his photography concepts and made us feel comfortable during our wedding and at times we didn't even realise he was there!
Radek is a true professional and the quality in his photos demonstrates his passion.
I recommend Radek to anyone who wants to remember their wedding through classy and thoughtful photography.

Radek was the perfect photographer for our wedding. From the moment we met him at a wedding fayre, we knew his personality matched ours. He made us feel totally relaxed at our meeting together where he got to know us as a couple and understand what we wanted from our wedding photographs.
We were really aware that the photographer that we chose would be present all day at our wedding and so it was really important that we selected someone that would be professional and that we would feel totally relaxed with – Radek fit this perfectly! We wanted to have specific family photo shots as well as natural photographs as the day unfolded. Radek was able to accommodate all of this and provided both. The photos perfectly captured our day and will be forever treasured – they’re already printed around the house!
We couldn’t have been happier with Radek and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others.
