Gyula Julian Zacsfalvi - Budapest wedding photographer, Hungary

Gyula Zacsfalvi

Hi, my name is Gyula (Julian) and I’m a wedding photographer born and living in Budapest. 5 years ago I started photographing weddings, before that I went to photography school, assisted for a couple of years, published calendars and a book about London. I’m also a family man, living with my Maltese love, my 5 years old son Noah and we have a naughty cat too.

Im passionate about traveling and documenting unique stories, and I’m sure you have one too to share and capture. My style has a journalistic approach without interfering, just being there, watching and documenting not only the main events but catching the moments in between, but with a touch of fine-art when and where needed (especially when it comes to portraits). I’m quite a relaxed guy and it is my aim to make you feel at ease in front of my camera too. So don’t worry! I believe the best wedding images come from connection and working together. So I ask you to share your thoughts with me, feel free to ask me anything, I’d love to hear from you and start discussing your plans.

Some facts about me

Climbing: I’ve been climbing for around 20 years (I take part in some bouldering competitions too) and one of my favourite places to do so is Fontainebleau, France.

MCM: I love mid-century modern design pieces and architecture. I’m particularly  fond of chairs. I have many chairs in my home most of them found on the streets, renovated, upholstered.

Music: I find it fascinating, late night editing or traveling to a wedding, I always listen to music.  My current favorites are: The Blaze,George FitzGerald, Apparat, Bonobo, Moderat, The XX

“Having done this job for rather a long time now, I’ve developed an obsession with beautiful photography. Once you’re poured over wedding images for years and years and years, you really start to get an instinctive feel for talent. The way people capture light, their subjects, frame their images and draw emotion from every scene. Then there’s the edit, a way to truly set your style apart from the rest. I’m hopeless with a camera myself, but I’d like to think I can pick a good photographer a mile off. Julian Zacsfalvi is definitely one of  the best I’ve come across lately, there’s nothing fussy or overdone about his work..”

Travel Plan

I love traveling and meeting people and since this is a big part of my work and life, I couldn’t ask for more.

There are plans and booked dates, so if you’re close to these areas in the mentioned dates and want to book a session, getting married or just want to chat over a coffee let me know. Dates can be moved and I’d love to add new locations to the list so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

As much as I love traveling I love the city in which I was born and where I currently live, Budapest. A city which constantly reminds me of its beauty. This coming year I’ll have a handful of weddings here too, so if you’re planning to have your wedding in Budapest, Hungary, contact me with your details and lets start a conversation.
