My name is Janis Ratnieks and I'm passionate about capturing the beauty, emotion, and love of your special day. With over 600 weddings shot in 36 countries, I bring a wealth of experience and expertise to every wedding I photograph.
My style is cinematic, colourful, and authentic, with a focus on capturing the true essence of your special day. I believe that wedding photography is about more than just pretty pictures - it's about creating a visual story that reflects your individual style and personality.
I'm proud to have worked with a number of prestigious clients, including Atom Events, Chateau Challain, Sarah Heywood, GSP, Imaginez Cannes, Iris Weddings Paris, Fete in France, Haute Weddings, Sposiamo Vi, Beth Helmstetter, Simon Liebel, Dream Events, LaFete AdN, By Appointment Only and many more. These partnerships have allowed me to hone my craft and develop my signature style, while also providing my clients with exceptional service and unforgettable photographs.
Here at Janis Ratnieks Photography, I have the pleasure of capturing weddings of diverse cultures, each one fascinating in its own way. Whether it's an English/American wedding, a Chinese or Indian celebration, a Persian affair, or a Jewish union, I relish exploring the world through my lens. With a deep appreciation for the unique customs, traditions, and symbolism of each culture, I am wholeheartedly dedicated to seizing every meaningful moment.
I've had the honour of photographing intimate weddings with only two people, as well as grandiose celebrations with up to 2500 guests. While I usually work solo, I have a talented team at my disposal when needed. Plus, all photographs undergo retouching by my beloved wife, Inese - a skilled artist with a keen eye for colours and a great understanding of women.
Based in London, I've had the pleasure of photographing weddings all across the UK and beyond. Whether you're planning a traditional church wedding, a rustic barn wedding, or a destination wedding in a far-off location, I'm dedicated to creating stunning photos that will be cherished for a lifetime. If you can get there, so can I.
With a keen eye for detail and a commitment to excellence, I'm committed to providing you with high-quality, professional photography services that exceed your expectations. From your engagement photos to your bridal portraits and your wedding day, I'll be with you every step of the way, capturing the moments that matter most.
Thank you for considering Janis Ratnieks Photography for your wedding photography needs. I look forward to capturing the magic and beauty of your wedding day!
