We just wanted to thank you once again for all your amazing work on our wedding day. You captured our day so perfectly and have given us photos that will help us to remember every part of our special day forever. We have shared the photos with family and friends and have received so many compliments on how wonderful they are at capturing the emotion of the day. We now have the difficult task of choosing our favorite for our wedding album. We wish we could do it all over again and we wouldn’t hesitate in choosing Karol as our wedding photographer.
Can’t thank you enough

I wish I could give Karol 20 stars! Absolutely amazing photographer and persona. We could not be happier with our photos! He is fantastic, helping us to catch moments without you even knowing what he is doing. He instructed us perfectly for all the set photos and the results were amazing! He captured our essence, joy and craziness in the atmosphere of the day. He can’t be more fantastic at finding opportunities for beautiful images and make you feel at ease instantly. We are very grateful for his attention to detail, it was fantastic when we received our pictures, definitely over taking our expectations! We absolutely recommend Karol Makula.

We booked Karol back in early 2016 for our October 2017 wedding after discovering his work through Facebook… someone we had went to School with had used Karol for their wedding and we instantly fell in love with his shots and his style of photography! Throughout the day Karol was virtually undetectable snapping away – of course you have the standard group wedding and family shots but for us we loved his candid photography of everyone natural and enjoying the day. As anyone will tell you your wedding day is over so quickly and its easy to forget or miss moments that happen with so much going on, when Karol sent us through our pictures before Christmas we were amazed 🙂 they took us through every moment of the day all over again and even showed some ones that we missed. Karol captured the day perfectly and his work speaks for itself however I cannot recommend him highly enough! Thanks again x

My husband and I booked Karol for our wedding in October 2017 after we had arranged a engagement photoshoot in Loch Ard. Karol travelled with us the nearly 4 hour round journey and 30 minute round trek through a forest for this and we ended up with some beautiful photos in the spot James proposed 🙂 Karol then photographed our wedding day perfectly at the beautiful Tullibole Castle. He was very discreet, we didn’t know he was there half the time. Our request was to have the photos very natural. We did have some planned photos but even those were very tasteful. He was very dependable, patient but at the same time keeping us on track with what needed to happen when. We got the photos back when he said we would have them back, just in time for Christmas. Thanks Karol for providing a excellent service and some beautiful photos as a result. Laura and James

Booking a photographer for our wedding in Scotland from the US was stressful but Karol calmed our nerves by being so organized and by keeping in contact with us constantly. From the moment we contacted Karol he was so professional and wonderful to work with. My husband and I were absolutely blown away when we received our pictures. Karol managed to capture our wedding day and all of the little special moments perfectly. We had been looking for a photographer that would capture all of the natural interactions between ourselves and guests, and that is exactly what he was able to do. He works so discreetly that we were unaware of him for most of our day until he spoke with us to ensure we had everything we needed. Thank you again Karol, we cannot wait to get the pictures printed and placed around our home!

Karol made us feel instantly at ease, as soon as we met with him we decided he was the photographer for us. He was open to our ideas and worked with us to help take lots of beautiful photos in a very natural way. We were married just down the road from our house and Karol was happy to come with us back to our village to take some beautiful photos there as well as the ones he took at the venue. We ended up with a stunning album that we are thrilled with. Karol was subtly there to capture ever moment, he is so kind and patient and made both James and I as well as our guests feel comfortable throughout. We would unreservedly recommend Karol to everyone he provided a fantastic service and photos we will cherish forever.

We would 100% recommend Karol for a photographer 🙂

I cannot speak highly enough of Karol as a wedding photographer. When I first looked at his work I very wrongly assumed he was female, much to the humor of my then fiancé, who couldn’t contain his laughter when I phoned Karol and thought he was perhaps answering the phone for his wife. I knew straight away from looking at his work that he was the photographer for us; he has a beautiful, romantic and soft touch to his photography, qualities I had only previously seen with the work of female photographers I had viewed, but so important to the visions we had for our wedding photos. From the very first phone call to the very last Karol was the epitome of professionalism. He was quick in responding, friendly, warm- nothing was ever too much to ask. This contact was very important to us as we are based in Manchester but got married in Scotland. He even came to Edinburgh to meet us equipped with samples of his work and totally put our minds at ease. On the wedding day Karol was patient, easy going and totally discreet. At one point in the church ceremony I actually whispered to ask my bridesmaids if they had seen him as I was convinced he hadn’t turned up! Of course he had and he captured our day incredibly. The photos are stunning and Karol was still on the end of the phone to deal with the post production editing we asked for. This is a man that truly loves his job and will go above and beyond for his clients to ensure they have photos, and memories, they will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you so much Karol we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

We used Karol Makula for our wedding in March. The service he delivered was fantastic. Our photos turned out beautifully – over 500 images – and we received many compliments from guests regarding how well Karol blended into the background while taking all our lovely photos. He was such a lovely man to work with and extremely professional. Would recommend time & time again!

From the moment we met Karol we instantly knew we had found the photographer for us. He made us both feel at ease from the first meeting so it was very easy to relax with him. He was very professional yet at the same time was not over the top. We had seen his beautiful photographs online and wanted something similar. We were both uneasy in front of the camera and had an engagement shoot with Karol, this allowed us to relax more and get used to having him around. The photos from this shoot were beautiful which made us even more excited for the wedding photos. On the day Karol was perfect, he came to my aunts house and you wouldn’t even have known he was there. We received our wedding photos shortly after the wedding and were over the moon with the results, he captured the most important aspects of the day and the results were out of this world. I have no hesitation in recommending Karol. 🙂
