Last update: May 2024

The Soul of My Lens is a wedding photography company operating out of Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Hi,

My name is Zoltan.

I love covering weddings. I get to spend the day capturing the romance, laughter, joy, anticipation, excitement, and many other awesome photographic moments for my clients.

My style is a good mixture of photojournalism, romantic couple portraits and creative, contemporary images captured throughout the wedding day.

Services Offered

- Full-day coverage

I will capture everything from the excitement of the bridal preparation to your first dance and everything in between. I usually even stay a bit longer to take some cool dance floor shots. I want my couples to feel as relaxed as possible on their big day. Therefore, I don't work a set amount of hours.

-Complimentary Pre-wedding sessions

I love those sessions, and my couples love them too. They are perfect to get to know each other a little bit better, practising some poses and making you feel more relaxed in front of the camera and you will receive a nice set of romantic photographs to share with your friends and family well before the wedding.

-Professionally edited images

I will give all your photos the look and feel you see on my website

-Online Gallery
A password-protected online gallery where you can download all the images of your wedding day. You can share the link and password for the gallery with your friends and family, and they can see and download the images too. There is also a Print Store button to order high-quality prints and canvases, and framed pictures.

-4 weeks delivery time
I don't want you to wait too long for your images.
I do my best to deliver your images sooner than the industry average.

The most amazing photographer

We booked our wedding during the first covid lockdown and as soon as we booked our venue the most important thing for us was booking the right photographer.
We did our research and decided to go with Zoltan and honestly we couldn’t be happier that we did.
From day one we had constant contact with him, we had zoom meetings as we couldn’t meet in person and we had frequent emails and messages too.
Myself and my husband had a specific idea in mind as to what we wanted for our photos as after all, they’re the things you keep forever and can constantly look back on in years to come. Zoltan was on board with what we had in mind and having his input made us both so much more comfortable.
Neither myself or my husband are used to being in front of the camera and in all honestly the idea of posing made us both feel a little “silly” but then we did our pre wedding shoot and it was so much fun, Zoltan gave us a few poses to try and then he said to us to just carry on doing what we would normally do together and the photos were just amazing, then we couldn’t wait for the big day as we knew he would capture everything perfectly, and he did.
Next stop was wedding day, Zoltan and his assistant Lilly went above and beyond, they worked all day capturing the most amazing photos of us both getting ready (in different locations) and then they worked throughout the day and well into the evening.
Less than 3 weeks post wedding we had our beautiful images and looking back on the whole day Zoltan had captured the most amazing photos of our special day.
After years of hard work and planning seeing it all come together and knowing that you will keep those images forever was a dream.
We couldn’t recommend the soul of my lens photography more. It’s been a pleasure getting to know, meet and work with Zoltan.

Friendly, creative and astonishingly talented photographer

We are absolutely thrilled with our beautiful photos and thank you so much for being a part of our day - so many of our guests commented on how wonderful you are and felt so relaxed around you compared with other photographers they have experienced. They are also blown away with the images - thank you so much! We hope you had fun and found it relaxing as I know so many weddings are incredibly high pressure.

Incredible!!

Zoltan is an incredible photographer. I first met Zoltan back in 2019 and since then have done various shoots with him. He is really approachable and friendly and makes you feel so at ease. I always said when I get married I need Zoltan to be our photographer as I knew the photos would be amazing. We received our photos today and amazing is an understatement. He is so very talented and creative in how he photographs all the special things of your day. He has exceeded all of our expectations! I would encourage anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer to book Zoltan. He is a fantastic photographer and now a lifelong friend. Thank you so much!!!

A wonderful addition to our day

We can't recommend Zoltan highly enough, he made us feel at ease immediately and has a real eye for beautiful pictures. Both on our wedding day and the pre-wedding shoot he had lots of ideas and was more than happy to take our suggestions on board. Professional, personable and always in the right place at the right time! We loved the sneak peak photos that came soon after the wedding and the final photos captured the wonderful moments that made up our day in natural way.

Fantastic photographer!

After sifting through numerous photography portfolios, we finally discovered Zoltan! Our initial complimentary engagement/pre-wedding photoshoot session with Zoltan convinced us that he would capture our wedding day perfectly. The pictures turned out fantastic, and the overall vibe was wonderful. Zoltan has a knack for making you feel at ease, assuring that he'll skillfully capture both the bride's feminine side and the groom's masculine side. He strikes this balance effortlessly, yielding absolutely incredible results. Moreover, he welcomes direction and is incredibly flexible when it comes to accommodating requests, choosing locations, and addressing all the needs of the bride and groom to create a picture-perfect moment tailored just for you. We are beyond pleased with the outcome and want to extend our heartfelt thanks to Zoltan for everything! I've attached some of my favourite shots from the engagement shoot and wedding x

Zoltan - An extremely talented Photographer!

Zoltan took our wedding photos in August, we've just received our full gallery and couldn't be happier with how they turned out. The photos are incredible!! And received them back within a month which is really impressive.
He is a creative, friendly and very talented photographer who made my husband and I, and all our guests, feel completely at ease. We have lots of candid, relaxed, fun and natural shots, as well as beautiful formal group shots which we love.
From the fun pre-wedding shoot where we got used to the camera, to the big day, we enjoyed having Zoltan capture it all and now have so many amazing photos to look back on for the rest of our lives! If you need a super talented wedding photographer Zoltan is definitely your guy :) Thank you so much!!

An incredible photographer that you NEED on your big day

When you get married, there are lots of things to worry about, but for us the most important was the supplier that was going to capture the day and immortalise it in photos so we could enjoy it forever.

Trusting Zoltan with that immense responsibility was the very best decision we could have made. Not only is he a phenomenal photographer, but he is also reliable, responsive and just up for giving it a go with whatever strange requests you throw at him. He was genuinely invested in our day, and did everything he could to make sure we captured the moments that mattered, and felt special while doing it. His style and creativity shines through in every photo, creating a real buzz from everyone we've shown his shots to.

Our engagement shoot was an amazing opportunity for us to get to know him, and vice versa, and learn the techniques that mean you don't waste time on the big day learning to pose. Zoltan makes it effortless and fun, meaning you spend more time on the dancefloor. He also warmly welcomed our Labrador to the shoot, meaning we have some really special photos of our 4 legged friend as well.

And while the cost of capturing your big day shouldn't matter, it does, and Zoltan was exceptionally good value for money, with very reasonable prices for a service that was absolutely flawless.

If you make one decision right now for your wedding, it should be booking Zoltan. You won't regret it now, and you certainly won't when you hang the photos on the wall.

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G - cannot recommend highly enough!

Zoltan came to our rescue and saved our wedding day when our original photographer let us down at the last minute, and we are so, so grateful that he did, because Zoltan was truly incredible. Despite the last-minute booking, he did everything within his power to ensure we had everything we wanted from our wedding pictures. He was always easy to talk to, understanding, and so incredibly passionate about his art. And it showed, every picture was a masterpiece, I just wish I had more walls in my home to display them all! We will now forever have such beautiful memories of our big day, thanks to this amazing, talented photographer.

I cannot recommend Zoltan highly enough. If you need a photographer that cares about your big day, get in touch with him, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you, Zoltan, for rescuing our big day and making our memories so pure and perfect!

An awesome photographer

We have had the best time planning and capturing images for our wedding day with Zoltan at The Soul Of My Lens.
He is a truly talented photographer with an honest passion for his art. He is very thorough and ensures everything is perfect without being intrusive, he’s also a really nice guy.
Having met him a few times before our wedding day, we felt very comfortable with him and in-front of the camera. He was a special part of our day, and produced the most perfect photos that captured the essence of our day exactly.
We are so pleased we found you Zoltan, THANK YOU X

Passionate awe inspiring contemporary wedding photographer

After spending considerable time choosing a photographer for my daughter’s wedding, I couldn’t be more delighted with our choice of Zoltan / The soul of my lens Photography.

I had an initial meeting with Zoltan and then we did a zoom meeting with my daughter and her fiancée. A few weeks before the big day Zoltan did a pre-wedding shoot with them which was fantastic as it gave them all a chance to get to know each other and practice poses for the actual day. We got over 30 amazing images from this too and it meant on the day it wasn’t a stranger taking the photos.

On the day Zoltan was truly great. With his vast experience of shooting weddings he knew what, where and how to capture some amazing images. He did the obligatory group photos, though it was the candid photos and the couples photos and the smaller more intimate groups that he did which sets him apart from his peers and gave us a truly wonderful set of images which perfectly captured the day.

Zoltan is truly passionate about what he does. He obviously loves photography and really cares about capturing the best images possible and this passion shows in how he shoots and in the fantastic images he creates.

Within a few weeks we had over 600 quality images that we could view on a special web page and then we could download the ones we wanted. The images he captured on the day were superb and he truly captured the emotions of everybody.

I can’t recommend Zoltan highly enough and have already booked him for my other daughter’s wedding too!

September wedding

Wow! what a photographer. I had used Zoltan about a year ago for puppy pictures of our dog arnie. When we got engaged I knew I wanted him to take our wedding photos. We had the most fabulous engagement shoot at Herstmonceux castle, of course with Arnie the dog :) The photos were just spectacular. When it came to the weddng day, nothing was too much trouble. He drove between my hotel and my husbands to make sure he captured pictures of both of us in the morning. He was so involved in the wedding day and became one of our guests. His photos are breathtaking and I love relooking at them. Perfect photos and the most lovely chap too! You wont be disappointed at all with your choice, book Zoltan now! We will be using him again for any of our photos we would need.
