your love is different. and so should be your wedding pictures.
documentary wedding photography for creative and adventurous souls
// wedding photographer’s promise to you
i won’t boss you around. i won’t ask you to be an actor and pretend to be someone you are not. i won’t put up a fashion show. i won’t give you sugarcoated meows. or BS. or fairy tales.
i will stay out of your way. i will let you be true you. i will be there and i won’t miss a beat.
wedding photographers pinky promise.

// wedding photography that gives back
while being a responsible human being and a successful wedding photography business owner, i also make sure to help those that are not that fortunate. part of the income generated by documenting wedding day memories for local wedding couples here in Madison, Wisconsin, allows me to give back and strengthen communities in US and around the world.
in 2017, my family and i donated 5.8% of my wedding photography profits to help those in need. to some people it’s might seem not that much, but to me it’s helluva good start.
OF MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PROFITS IN 2017
WERE DONATED TO VARIETY OF INDIVIDUALS, FUNDRAISERS,
AND CHARITY ORGANIZATIONS
WHY WE ARE
i know you have other things to do on your wedding day than worry about wedding photography. like hold each others hands, laugh, enjoy your beautiful celebration at its fullest and not give a damn about anything. that’s why you need a wedding photographer that gets you.
it doesn’t matter whether you are planning big or small. i will let you be you and will care of the rest.
below are few random reasons why we would make a good team. and with a teamwork comes team comes wedding day easy like Sunday morning.
01. you live today
that pretty much says it all. today as not yesterday. today as not tomorrow. but today as if it was your last day on planet earth.
and you celebrate your marriage, your life and all people in it accordingly.
02. you are not your dress.
your wedding story will rock! it will have tears, laughter, hugs and all the love in the world. and no flowers, ring or dress image will ever match the importance of the images with you two and your loved ones.
03. it’s not about the money
i don’t care whether your wedding is over the roof extravaganza, simple DIY wedding made with teeny-tiny budget or if its adventurous elopement to patagonia. your wedding is as good as you feel about it.
04. you enjoy being yourself
which phrase you want to be saying in 15 years: “we thought it would look cool and people would like it on facebook.” or “this is real me. this is who i was at that time. this is how it happened.”? be yourself. i’ll take care of the rest.
// signature wedding galleries
i like to think my wedding pictures aren’t half bad (wink wink) and i like to think wedding stories i document speak for themselves.
it’s the stories that celebrate imperfection and evydayness. and they do so by exploring and exposing intimate moments of everyday people.
no scripts. no princesses. no unicorns.
real moments. real people. real life.

// artist. dreamer. adventurer.
originally from lithuania and i’ve been a resident of madison wi for 15+ years. for the last 6 i’ve been a full time award-winning documentary wedding and editorial photographer here in US midwest. i’m “baking soda and vinegar” kind of guy and a big advocate of simplicity and minimalism.
my life would be incomplete without my family, travel, art, challenges, biking, good days, rough days, books, outdoors and bourbon and daily walks in my hood with Kenzie PJ7 and a small camera i my pocket.
