INCREDIBLY TALENTED - Where to begin... picking a wedding photographer is truly one of the most important decisions you make in the wedding process. You have to consider a lot of things, professionalism, good energy, has the artist within to capture those perfect shots and... Read More QUICKLY. There are so many moments that happen and happen fast so you need them captured in their authentic moment and Magda and Marcin truly did just that. They don't just quickly capture a moment in time but they do so while telling a story and making sure everyone looks their best. I don't know how they did it, we have received so many compliments from family and friends on how amazing their work truly is. I cannot begin to recommend them enough. If you are on the fence on selecting WASIO, don't be! You will not regret it. I am so happy I chose them and I now forever have wedding pictures that truly tell a beautiful story. Side note, my now husband truly does not like pictures, he hates posing and being told to smile. The fact that WASIO could capture him and I looking amazing and in love and laughing is beyond me. They made it happen.

It took me a while to find the perfect photographer to do boudoir photos with as a gift to my future hubby. I needed someone who made me feel comfortable, who had a classy studio, and who didn't break the bank. I was referred to Magdalena by my photographer after talking with so... Read More many boudoir photographers because they didn't check off all three of the things I was looking for. However, Magdalena ended up going above and beyond in each of those areas. Her studio is classy with exposed brick walls, natural light, and elegant furniture. She gets to know you while you get ready, I did my makeup trial there before the shoot and she even gave me a glass of wine! She gave me gentle direction during the shoot and many compliments, I mean what girl doesn't like compliments? And she offered various albums, prints, and other packages with the photos to help me find which one best fit my budget. Overall I would choose her again and again and recommend her to any woman looking to get boudoir photos and even make a new friend. She's a lovely person inside and out! Highly recommend Wasio Boudoir!

What an incredible experience! I chose Magdalena of Wasio for two reasons. One, I've worked with her before for my engagement and wedding photography, and two, for her incredible prospective when it comes to boudoir photography! I was nervous at first but Magdalena was very... Read More reassuring and made me feel extremely comfortable. She offered many suggestions on outfits and ideas, and worked with what I had in mind as well. Throughout the session Magdalena would show me a few glimpses of photos on her camera as encouragement. She has a great eye that could make a woman of any shape or size feel beautiful. I chose to do mine as a surprise gift to my husband for our 5 year wedding anniversary and a gift to myself for my 30th birthday. This was a very rewarding experience and I definitely recommend Magdalena. Every woman should do this at least once, even if it is just for yourself!

Magdalena did my Wasio Boudoir photo shoot and she made the whole process easy, comfortable, and enjoyable.

Working with Magdalena makes me wish I found her sooner so she could photograph our wedding. She is very skilled and is great at giving direction. I would highly recommend a boudoir photo shoot with Magdalena if not for your future spouses but for yourself.

Talented, artistic, professional, responsive, FUN! These are just a few ways we would describe Marcin and Magdalena at Wasio. We absolutely loved working with these two and are so grateful that they were the photographers we chose to capture our wedding last September! Marcin... Read More and Magdalena were extremely welcoming and friendly. From the very start we felt comfortable with these two. They seemed genuinely interested in us and in our day. We are not professional models by any means (all though sometimes M&M made us feel like it :)) so it was very important to us that we could trust and feel at ease around our photographers. These two, with their witty husband and wife banter and fun personalities, make for such a comfortable, happy environment on such an exciting day! It was really nice having an engagement session as part of our package. Not all photographers that we researched included this (nor did they include an album in their packages like Wasio does!). The two gave great direction on how to “pose,” but still look natural. Like I said, not models here :), so we really needed this. And on the wedding day, we never felt like we were interrupted or missed out on moments for pictures. M&M captured amazing candid shots, which was something that was really important to us. They truly went above and beyond. In addition to our wedding package, they created beautiful blogs for both our engagement session as well as our wedding. These meant so much to us! So many friends and family would ask to see our wedding pictures and these were great ways to show them the highlights of the day. We also really appreciated how responsive and accommodating Marcin was. He always responded to emails promptly and was very helpful with one off questions/requests we had. Now the most important reason why we’d recommend Wasio – our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning! Best way we can describe them is sophisticated, artistic and gorgeous. It is like they came right out of a magazine! Between the candid shots capturing how we felt the moment of our first look, the beautiful images of us complimented by the architecture of the city and the expressions they caught on our dancing guests’ faces – Marcin and Magdalena truly nailed it! Marcin and Magdalena captured our day and our memories perfectly through their pictures! We would definitely recommend these two to anyone looking to hire a wedding photographer!

I would highly recommend working with WASIO photography because of the genius talent in photography and for their personability. Furthermore, they are very easy to reach and were always quick to respond whenever I contacted them with a question.
