Photography for Dreamers and believers

Bristol photographer

Covering South West & Wales


Eszter is the most wonderful photographer! She is enthusiastic, dedicated, and enjoys her job, which is the most important thing. She shows in the beautiful pictures that her heart and soul are in her. It was also straightforward to take creative photography with her. We didn’t feel uncomfortable with my husband for a minute. Very imaginative pictures were taken. We love looking back at these beautiful pictures! I wholeheartedly recommend the little miracle Szeti! Forever, one of our most beautiful memories is worth choosing the best photographer.

It’s Eszter, a Bristol photographer who is passionate about capturing genuine, soul-stirring moments. It is ideal for those who cherish deep connections and aim to make an impact.

Supported by a family that values brutal honesty, I’ve become adept at overthinking every decision. After moving to the UK and leaving behind five cats, I imagine they’re now plotting their revenge.

Challenging norms and embracing brutal honesty mark my approach, while a lack of common sense and horror films are no-gos for me. Turquoise isn’t just my favourite colour; it’s my trademark.

With a photojournalism background, I excel in revealing beauty amidst chaos and capturing life’s unscripted moments. If you’re looking for a photographer who thrives on challenges and can capture the magic in life’s messiness, let’s create something incredible together!

To help you plan

Eszter photographed our recent wedding at the Radnor Rooms. Working with her has been an absolute pleasure. She was professional, responsive and straightforward. Throughout the process, from initial enquiry to receiving the photos. On our wedding day, Eszter and George were calm and happy and seemed genuinely excited to be part of the day. The images were fabulous. Eszter can catch candid and natural moments so beautifully and in a truly unique style. We recommend Eszter unreservedly and could not be happier with our choice of a wedding photographer.
