My friends call me Nik. I’m married to my soul mate and best friend Marija and we’re blessed with raising two little superheroes together.
I’ve dedicated a big part of my life to studying math and science, graduating with a degree in computer science and working as a software engineer for over a decade. Photography came into the picture (pun always intended) with the digital revolution of the early 2000’s as a genuine vocation, passion and obsession.
I love photography for its ability to capture our stories and feelings as we go through this journey of life and preserve them wrapped in timeless quality for generations to come, as our visual legacy. I love the joy it brings when we look back and reflect on our journey. I love seeing this joy in other people when they see a beautiful set of images from their life story. My mission is to capture as many of these beautiful stories as possible.
My favourite stories are the love stories between two soul mates and best friends, surrounded by the their loved ones, on one of the happiest days of their lives. I put my heart and soul into capturing these love stories and creating something unforgettable for the couple and their family. It’s a very humbling and rewarding experience. It will be a great honour and a privilege to be able to capture yours.
My approach to photography is photo-journalistic. I like to let the stories unfold in front of me. I love documenting authentic, honest and candid moments, the moments that perfectly reflect who you are as individuals and as a couple. On the wedding day I offer guidance when needed (e.g. family/group portraits and bridal portraits), but for the rest of the day I like to blend into the background as a creative observant. When the time comes (and if you’re lucky) you might see me carve a few shapes on the d-floor as well.
I’m based in Melbourne and I’m available for local and destination weddings. My awards are my happy couples. You can read what some of them have to say about their wedding photography experience here.
This is my story so far. I’d love to hear yours over a cup of coffee. Get in touch.
