Studio Impossible was created to push and redefine the boundaries of creative portraiture, wedding and event photography and video.

My goal is pretty simple
To record your unique story from start to finish, capturing the big and small details, all the emotions, and to make you look incredible at the same time. My pictures should move you, even if they are of someone else’s wedding.
I want you to have an incredible, fun, worry-free time with your photography. I’ll help you with ideas on how to make your day go as smoothly as possible.
My approach and inspirations
I’ve had a chance to do many kinds of photography, and while I enjoy them all, wedding photography fills me with a special joy, closely followed by portraiture.
It’s probably because wedding photography goes beyond portraiture to also engage my love of documenting life’s special occasions and the rich range of human emotions that come crashing together in one (or several) crazy, busy day. To see joy, anxiety, happiness, and even sadness, and to be able to capture them for people who let me into their lives is a true privilege.
I’m inspired by the use of creative posing techniques from fashion, but ensure they still reflect the personality of my clients and portray genuine emotions.
I also come from a strong wedding photojournalism, sports, and street photography ethic, which is to capture a strong story by anticipating moments and capturing them as they occur.
I see humour in lots of things. I want my pictures to be able to make you smile as well as cry. While weddings can be emotionally weighty occasions, they’re also a lot of fun, and I make sure my pictures show both sides.
Without good light, you have nothing, as one of my mentors would say. Meticulous control of lighting is at the very core of my photography.
While a photographer’s skill is the most important, his tools can also make a great difference in the final result. My gear is arguably the best that’s out there for the challenges of event photography. No expense is spared to make sure you get the best quality results.
Do I pile a lot of responsibility on myself, absolutely! All I care about is getting you incredible photography.
