I am Ela Walenda-Koziminska and I live in Bedford with my husband and our two children. As you can imagine I am constantly taking photos of them but it's hard to find any of me on them.

Apart from my family, photography is definitely my longest lasting and most exciting love. I can't thank my dad enough for getting me a Zenit camera when I was about 14 years old. I would have never thought it was such a turning point in my life. When people ask me how long I've been taking photos I can't really remember when I wasn't, and the only answer which comes to my mind is 'forever'.

When I started my journey with photography I didn't think about myself as a Wedding Photographer. I worked as a photo editor and a photojournalist in a press agency for over ten years.

 My wedding photography journey started from my friend's wedding just when I found out I was pregnant. I thought of this wedding as a challenge and decided to use my reportage experience as an advantage to get the best out of it. I enjoyed it massively and was so pleased with the final results.

My photography is a combination of documentary and reportage wedding photography with a a touch of creativity and fine-art. I love natural, candid shots expressing emotions and atmosphere of the Wedding Day. I photograph weddings all over the UK. I've shot Weddings in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Nottinghamshire, London and many other locations from small villages to big cities. I am mostly a Bedford Wedding Photographer but happy to travel to many different places.

You can't miss me… I would be happy to meet and talk through details of your wedding day, photo session or any other event over a cup of tea or coffee. Hope to hear from you soon...
