My name is Jake Połomski, I was born in 1985 in Cieszyn, Poland. Photography is not only my profession, but first of all my passion. I have been photographing for 12 years. I often travel both in life and in photography, not being afraid of new challenges. I love what I do. I am a laureate of the National Geographic photography competition as well as dozens of other national and international photo competitions. With the brand VIVATORRE | Pictures with Love I broaden my creative horizons by photographing nature, human nature. I make complete wedding photo journals as well as individual wedding sessions.

I like natural shots, without posing. During the ceremony I am discreet and I don’t use any additional lighting. At the wedding I am trying not to miss any funny, moving, or just important moment; I am always on standby. During the wedding session I encourage each couple to spontaneous behavior, to be themselves. Honest feeling and true emotions are the essence of wedding photo journal. I am mainly based in Poland (Cieszyn, Cracow, Zakopane) and England (London, Cambridge, Birmingham), but I can get to anywhere in the world to make the most original photographs.

My limited landscape pictures are offered in YellowKorner, the global network of galleries. I invite you to look at my landscapes on www.jakubpolomski.com and Facebook.
