Behind The Lens...

Perhaps I love bonfires so much because they bring back all the warm and fuzzy moments and provide all the warmth to my soul and heart...those moments we don't ever want to end...ever...the energetic mood, warm flames...perhaps....symbolize our endless love...for each other...adventures...and new path...together...that light...so soft and calming....
The memories I always want to come back when I close my eyes...because...

Adventures are the equivalent of human wings. Ask me to go on anywhere. We'll stop every part of the trail, learn all about the place, its stories, and history, feel the ground, and capture its spirit. Then we'll turn it into our own story, your unique, lifetime experience, your LOVE STORY that will live inside you for a lifetime.

...because stories are more important than things." Victoria Erickson Where I unfold... Learn With Me

About The Artist:

“Skadkolwiek wieje wiatr zawsze ma zapach Tatr.” Jan Sztaudynger
I am a wanderer. I love getting lost on purpose…hit the mountain trails just to find my own soul…my adventure.
This brings me back to a close to my heart memory…my last year of high school…we went to visit Tatrzanski Park Narodowy on one of our being there adventure experiences and little did I know that those memories will last a LIFETIME
Located in the heart of polish Tatry mountains so close to my heart, we hiked to the alpine Lake Morskie Oko…if you love nature..it’s a must alpine hike..only 2-3 hours…but the alpine views are always mesmerizing….gah…
So…now when I look back at all those memories…little steps I have taken….EVERY SINGLE TIME I go back up at 12000 feet IT FEELS LIKE HOME….it brings me back thousands miles away….for just a split second…I feel like I am in that frozen moment….still that high school girl…even the tundra smells the same.
Maybe there is more to those memories….just maybe…I’ve come to a full circle…now documenting the most incredible love stories….of nature lovers…boho brides not afraid to get their dresses dirty..Creating soul-stirring narratives for non traditional couples, barefoot brides, who prefer hiking boots over heels adventures on their wedding day, adventurous at heart. Wherever your adventure takes you, take me along the way...

Let's go!

Intimate Weddings + Adventure Elopement Photographer, Colorado + Beyond
Choosing me to capture You, your unique story, will mean an adventure. Watch the "behind the lens" film to grab a taste of what is to come... If you made it this far, say hello and let's continue our conversation...

“I don’t even crave extraordinary moments anymore. Just small, gentle hums of beauty streaming below, above, and beyond simply from paying attention. Sound. Light. Shadow. Art. Warmth. The night. The morning. Dreams that are not too far away but exist right here- already in my days, hands, and heart.” Victoria Erickson

Those words speak to my days...my heart...my soul....and us....
So many dreams come true...and even though all those moments go by so quickly...We show up to savor them all...second by second...we savor it...even if our date nights look just a bit different....we always knew we never for the mold of traditional so when you suggest date night washing the beer kegs
I’m all for it....it does not matter what we do....as long we do it together...I have a feeling it will be the craziest of all adventures we’ve been together last 21 years....so cheers to you, to us, and all YOUR DREAMS @sixcapitalbrewing will open the doors April 1st....and if you appreciate amazing hyper local food...and delicious craft beers...stop by! You might see me sipping beer and working on editing your beautiful moments!
Moment captured by @the_blissful_maven_ and her heart....it will be always my favorite....
My husband and I met on adventure on Monhegan Island, Maine. Feel free to ask about it when we connect! One day I will write a novel about it. It's probably the most romantic thing that we have experienced together. I'm a light chaser. I will be the first one to convince you the ONLY BEST TIME to start your big day is at 4am at sunrise. Sunday morning stay in bed snuggles are my fave. Watercolors are the reason why I love photography so much...and it all started when I was teaching art! Also, cinema has been a huge inspiration for filmmaking, movement....and the selective focus capturing sensual details... I wear yoga pants as a work uniform for most hiking adventures and always hiking boots when hitting the trail but if you choose for me to document your big day at your intimate wedding venue, I promise to dress up! I might have been a hummingbird in the previous life...I am truly obsessed with these tiny creatures and their adventures.
About Us:
Most days you can find us  hosting friends for dinners ( I drink his beer, Blake makes the food) My husband, Blake (who also happens to be a very talented chef and craft brewer at Six Capital Brewing ) is my rock support, love of my life and partner in all crazy things we tackle in our daily adventures. We have been together 21 years, married for 20 of those, meaning I've spent more days of my life with him than without.  Since Blake and I met in Maine, we call our son "Lobster." These two guys are MY EVERYTHING. They are my happy place.
And if you are ever in Colorado, go check out our brewery for yummy bites and craft beers! Link below!

Why me?

Kind Words

"Very few people in this world surprise me. I can honestly say that Justyna has simply amazed me. I cannot say enough about her professionalism, creativity, and most of all - her character. Justyna photographed my engagement pictures and my wedding. Her work is OUTSTANDING and it speaks for itself. More remarkable than her work is her personality and her integrity. The product aside, I can attest that working with her was remarkable. Justyna is energetic, fun, and passionate. My wife and I felt so comfortable and our experience was delightful - and her work was exceptional. I worked with many vendors to put together my wedding, all of whom did a great job. I had very high expectations and demanded much from the vendors who participated in my wedding. However, by far, my most memorable and impressionable experience was working with Justyna. I felt that Justyna was just as passionate about my experience and my wedding as I was. Her penchant for capturing pure and organic moments is unrivaled. The memories she helped to create are incredible. I cannot say enough about her or her work. As I mentioned before, Justyna’s work is outstanding, but the person is even more amazing. Justyna is a gifted photographer with an incredible ability to connect with people." Cliff+ Amy
