Kerry Newborn Photography | Pádraig

I had a great opportunity to photograph Róisín and Mícheál’s beautiful little baby boy – Pádraig in Kerry. You may remember Róisín and Mícheál from their engagement session and a wedding few years back.

It was amazing to watch how gentle, caring and warm parents Róisín and Mícheál are. They let me to observe and photograph them during typical every day routine such as breast feeding, bathing and having some fun time with parents. Pádraig was an absolute dream baby to photograph – very calm and patient.

Thanks so much for  having me photograph your little Páidí – he is so lucky to have been born into such loving family!

Please find below some photographs I captured:

 

 

If you are expecting or recently had a baby and would like to have photographs taken, please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your photography.

 

Anna Różnicka - Piękne naturalne zdjęcia :) Nóżki w kąpieli zdobyły moje serce ;)

Beata Witek - I know both – a couple and a baby well myself and must say the pictures say it all. The smile on his face is just bigger and bigger every day :) Sweet baby!

Bartek Witek - Thank you for your lovely comments Anna and Beata :) Dziękuję ślicznie za komentarz Aniu i Beatko :)

Anita Broda - Beautiful photographs :)

Bartek Witek - Thank you Anita.

ISPWP Award Winning Image | Venue or Location

I was really humbled to see the results of the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers – ISPWP Winter 2012 Contest.
One of my images of wonderful couple Emily and Juergen taken at fabulous Bantry House in Co. Cork was placed in the top 20 in the Venue or Location category. This is the image:

Have a look at the amazing images from photographers around the world that placed in the ISPWP Winter 2012 Contest.

Not heard of the ISPWP? The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers is a rarity among wedding photography organisations. Photographers cannot simply buy an ISPWP membership, they have to earn it.

Their requirements are experience, talent, and professionalism and to be accepted, a photographer must have shot at least 50 weddings, submit their portfolio for review, agree to operate under the ISPWP Code of Conduct, and have an ISPWP Sponsor or four references. Then they have to be voted in by current members.

In short, when you hire an ISPWP Wedding Photographer, you are hiring a talented veteran with a track record, peer recognition, and a passion for creating heirloom images of your wedding.

 

Linus Moran - Great achievement Bartek, congratulations & well deserved!

Bartek Witek - Thank you Linus!

Anna Różnicka - Gratulacje Bartku :) No i zdjęcie piękne oczywiście :)

Sean Gannon - Well done. Not only for membership but for being well placed. Lovely image.

Beata Witek - Congratulations!!! So proud of you! This is amazing achievement and great beginning of the year! BTW – Bantry House is so beautiful. We went over for a little walk few months ago and I was stunned with the place and the views, the gardens… Just loved it! Must visit it soon again in spring and watch the flowers blooming in the gardens…

Asian Wedding Photographers - Amazing work! Keep it up!
Cant wait for further updates.

Stepping into 2013… Happy New Year!

I feel like not long ago I was writing Stepping into 2012 post and it is already a year after that time. It is unbelievable how time flies…

I am not a great writer but I am constantly working on my writing skills and I will do my best to keep this blog regularly updated in 2013.
I will have some exciting news, weddings, portraits and family sessions to share with you.
I also hope I will finally have more time to focus on my 101 in 1001 goals and blog about them.

Once again a huge THANK YOU to all past, current and future clients for the trust and opportunity to meet and work with.

HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends!

 

Dear friends. Merry Christmas!

 

It’s been a challenging year for Bartek Witek Photography and for me personally but I have to say it was also a very interesting one. I have photograph wonderful weddings. I have meet wonderful people, great clients/couples that have trusted me and worked with me, fantastic photographers, florists, hair stylists, make-up artists and other amazing vendors.
I would like to say a massive THANK YOU for all your love and support in 2012.

From this point I would also like to say THANK YOU to my amazing wife that is supporting me every single day. I couldn’t be where I am today without you.

I extend this wishes to you all who visit my blog and your families all around the world:

The Brehon Hotel Wedding | Georgina and Paul

Please meet Georgina – the Mallow girl and Paul – real Scott from Edinburgh. They came over from Vancouver, Canada to get married in Ireland and I had a pleasure to photograph this day for them. Thank you for giving me this opportunity – I had an amazing time alongside you, your families and friends.

It was a very special day – filled with joy and happiness despite of the heavy shower that started unexpected just when the bride was arriving at the church.

Here is a selection of Georgina and Paul documentary wedding photography.
Enjoy…
