Dariusz did an excellent job photographing my wedding. He stayed with us from the time we were getting ready at the hotel until end of the reception. This was much more time then other photo vendors were willing to commit to (some as little as 4 hours).
He also had lots of ideas for photographs to ensure that we don't have a wedding album full of "posed" pictures.
Many of my guests commented that he always seemed to be close by taking pictures but was never in the way or blocking anyone's view. We interviewed 4 photographers and Dariusz was the most flexible and reasonably priced. I am so happy that we chose him!
Darek was amazing to work with for our engagement photo shoot. He was fun and professional. My fiancé and I are looking forward to having him capture our wedding because we know the amazing quality work that Derek does.
Vendor response to review
He did an AMAZING job!! He helped keep me (the bride) calm as can be on my wedding day even though that was not part of his job. The quality of his work is top notch! We will definitely be using him again for our future events!
Dariusz Kobajlo went well beyond our expectations in every way. He arrived an hour early just to preview the site and suggest locations for the various photographs we requested. Throughout our wedding ceremony and reception, Dariusz remained calm and respectful. Many of our guest commented on how friendly and polite he was; in fact, several thought he was a part of our family. The resulting images of our wedding are spectacular. Dariusz has our highest recommendation.
We can only say good things about Dariusz and nothing else. He was the first to show up at the church at 1:00pm and stayed until about 11:30pm at night.
He was approachable and professional at the same time. He was always ready and gave directions to us before we needed to do so. He was willing to take our opinions and let us contribute our ideas freely. He was extremely professional and was willing to lie on the floor just to take the perfect shot for us. He even placed his own jacket on the grass so we could sit on it for the shot. It was great meeting him at his studio and he explained to us in details the various packages and pricing. He was even considerate enough to accomodate us on the pricing since we had a limited budget.
We haven't seen our photos yet, but we're sure they will look great!
Dariusz was our wedding photographer this past September and I can't begin to say enough great things about him. He was unbelievably responsive throughout the entire process - from the time we first met with him, through the engagement photo shoot, in preparing for the wedding, as well as during and after the wedding. Whenever I emailed him, he always responded back to us that day.
On the day of the wedding, he showed up early and stayed the entire day until the very last song. He worked so well with our HUGE (23 person!) wedding party which is quite the feat to try to get that many people in a photo that doesn't look ridiculous. He was unobtrusive during the wedding and blended in with the party guests - never pulling us aside or forcing us to leave the reception to take photos which we were very happy about. He send us our photos within a few weeks of the wedding, which was so appreciated because we were so excited to see them. The photos are beautiful and we couldn't be happier.
Dariusz is a wonderful photographer and a really great person to work with. I highly highly recommend him to anyone in need or a photographer.
If I could give Dariusz (Derek) of JDKProphoto any more stars i definitely would. He captured my wedding in a way I didn't think was possible. Dariusz did a superb job and had my photos on his website almost immediately. Dariusz has an artistic edge that most photographers do not and this is something you won't find with your typical photographer. I researched and met with over 15 photographers and he shined above all the rest. Overall, I'm glad that I had the opportunity to meet with JDKProphoto, and I am confident in saying that he was the best guy for the job. The proof is in the pictures...
Darius was great and just what we were looking for. We didn't spend the whole reception posing for pictures! The photos are wonderful and there seems to be pictures of everyone who was there.
We would recommend Dariusz to everyone. His approach was perfect ... he knew when to take posed photographs and when to take candid photographs. His images are gorgeous and capture all of our emotions and our guests' emotions and the pure happiness and fun everyone had at our ceremony and reception. It is going to be very difficult to narrow down our choices as we create our wedding album and choose images to be printed and framed.
We love our photographer! He always responded to all my questions... and he worked so hard during our wedding day to make sure every picture was taken.. I received so many compliments from my guests! We wish him much success in his future jobs! ps: the pics are beautiful!
Exceeded all expectations, I would recommend to anyone who is in need of a professional photographer
JDKPROPHOTO exceeded our expectations in so many ways. He was very accomodating and patient...and has such an artistic flair in his work. He captured every moment of our special day. Thank you Darek for being such an intricate part of our wedding!
Dariusz is truly an exceptional photographer...it's not just a trade for him, it's an art. The work that Dariusz did to preserve our memories of our wedding day was amazing. I have friends that wish their photographer had done the same. I am extremely pleased with the work that JDKProphoto has done and will continue to use him as my photographer every chance I get.
I value capturing the essence and beauty of each individual wedding. Wedding packages include artistic and photojournalistic style to create photographs that are truly memorable. Also included in the package is a consultation with the couple to discuss their photography requirements and preferences, answer any questions, and develop a comfortable relationship. This in turn will help make your wedding day run more smoothly.
Never charge for travel time and I provide exelent service to my clients
