Our wedding day was incredibly special and Karol captured it beautifully. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Karol was very responsive and professional from the start. We were planning our wedding from out of country, which can sometimes be challenging when you aren’t familiar with the location. We were in good hands with Karol and he knew our wedding location well. My husband and I are a bit camera shy and were nervous we would have to do a lot of posing but Karol kept things very candid and our photos reflect that. We really enjoyed working with Karol and would highly recommend him.

There are bazillion reasons why my husband and I highly recommend ‘Karol Makula’ and one of those — because this guy is amazing with a golden and magical hand. We are fascinated by how he capture and give magical meaning and life to our wedding photos. He is very keen to details and tell a story in each of our photos.

He is a shoot anytime, anywhere kind of photographer. Imagine we had our elopement wedding in Gretna and since we are heading to Edinburgh after our wedding, he suggested that we had our post wedding shoot in Edinburgh and he even offered to drive for us – what a kind man.

To those bride to be out there, please get in touch with this man as he capture a feeling not just appearance.

Karol is a wonderful photographer & made our day very special! We live oversees, which made a lot of the planning difficult, but not with our photos… Karol made things so easy for us & he was very professional, friendly and patient. Your pictures are one of the most important things you take from your wedding as you get to treasure and capture every moment. It’s also a time where you want to spend time with your families and Karol understood this, so made sure we weren’t away from our guests for long! Our pictures are incredible and we can’t thank Karol enough!

Karol was absolutely fantastic at our wedding in Edinburgh. A few weeks before the wedding he came round to talk to us about what we were looking for and totally put us at ease. His photos are beautiful, they exceeded our expectations and exactly in the style we’d hoped for. He was amazingly unobtrusive during the day and got through the family photos quickly and painlessly! We’ve had so many compliments on how lovely the photos have turned out. We would certainly recommend Karol to anyone looking for a great photographer for their wedding.

We used Karol Makula for our wedding in July. He was a fantastic photographer, he gave good direction for photos, and was very freindly in mannor. He is very easy to contact and will reply to any small quary quickly so you are not left waiting. Our photos were amazing and we were very impressed, he was also very quick to diliver them (only 4 weeks) meaning we were not left waiting ages for them, My sister also got married this year, used a different photographer and had to wait 4 months for hers so Karol was a lot better! I would definitly reccomend Karol to others.

As soon as I saw Karol’s work online I knew I really wanted to book him for our wedding. We emailed back and forth and he was very flexible with traveling to our rural location. On the day of the wedding we hardly knew he was there! Karol was professional and friendly, and got to know our personalities very quickly, and didn’t mind my 4 year old following him around curiously! Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful – the only problem we are having is deciding which to display in the living room because there are so many beautiful pictures to choose from!

Karol is a fantastic photographer. We hired him for our wedding party and both my wife, Konul, and I felt immediately at ease with Karol, as well as a great photographer he is also such a genuinely nice guy. He knew exactly what we wanted from our day and we couldn’t have asked for a better result. The photographs are amazing! We were looking for a very relaxed photographer who could just blend into the crowd and Karol really captured the fun, relaxed essence of our day. We cannot recommend him enough.

Karol was the first and last photographer that we met with for our wedding as we knew straight away he was the one for us! We picked Karol as we liked his ‘candid’, not staged style and that’s exactly what we got. I don’t even remember seeing him during the ceremony (which is a good thing! As he still took the most amazing photographs). Most importantly I think though, Karol is a really lovely guy who was brilliant on the day and relaxed throughout. He knew where and when he wanted his shots already so the whole process went smoothly and very quick, so he wasn’t keeping us from our guests too long. We received ‘sneak peak’ photos very quickly after the wedding which was fantastic, and of course the finished products were even better! I would absolutely recommend Karol to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

As soon as we met Karol we knew he was the right photographer. We done some research and met a few other photographers but Karol stood out. He produced amazing images that really captured our day. Thank you Karol.

Karol was our wedding photographer in Edinburgh, Scotland. He went above and beyond out expectations; not only was he punctual and professional, he put in extra effort to ensure that our special day would be authentically captured. His affable and approachable demeanour made us feel comfortable, however he is no dilettante. Having now seen the finished wedding photos, we can say with utmost certainty that he is a master of his craft. We cannot recommend his services enough; this is a rare instance of where five stars does not fully reflect our satisfaction. Thank you so much, Karol! Hopefully we will be able to work together again in the future.

We met Karol over a year before our wedding, and Karol was the first photographer we met. We had no hesitation, within the first meeting that we knew we found who we wanted to be at our special day. Karol made us feel at ease through the whole process and we have a wonderful time during our pre-wedding photo shoot where the photos were flawless. Karol continued to make regular contact when required and answered the many questions we had. Our day quickly approached and the day was here before we knew it. Karol arrived at the venue relaxed and had everything under control. We both felt at such ease knowing our day was being captured. Karol’s structure to the photos suited our day perfectly where we never away from our guests for too long. Karol was a true gent and made a important part of the day seem very relaxed. Karol was extremely quick with the delivery of our photos, and WOW. It was the best email I have ever woken up to – the photos were dreamy and we could not have asked for more. A massive thank you – a day we will remember forever, with photos to keep the memories too!

We saw Karol’s photos on a friend’s Facebook page and loved them, so we approached him to see if he was available for our date! He was! He planned a meeting pre wedding to have a look through his portfolio and to discuss what we would like before finalising the booking which was great as we were reassured that he was such a lovely and professional guy! He captured so many amazing moments from our day and apart from doing our couple shoot we barely noticed he was there. He was so lovely and checked we didn’t want anything else before leaving. Our photos arrived quickly and we absolutely love them all! He caught the day perfectly and we couldn’t ask for anything more! Great guy. Highly recommended.

We booked Karol for our wedding in September. He was easy to get in touch with right from the beginning and was always willing to meet at a time and place that suited us. On the wedding day Karol was not intrusive when taking photos, which allowed him to capture very natural photos of everyone. He is creative and passionate, which comes across in all of our photos. We have received many compliments on our wedding album and we really struggled to select our favourite photos to put in the album as he had taken so many great photos that we love. We would definitely recommend Karol!

Karol was our wedding photographer in March 2018. After some time searching for the right photographer we came across some of Karol’s work online. We were so impressed my wife to be contacted him straight away to see if he would be available for our date and thankfully he was.
From the first point of contact Karol was a pleasure to deal with.
On the day of the wedding he made things so easy despite the challenges of snow on the day and even took advantage to take some extra special shots.
We got the photos back much quicker than we excepted and we were absolutely blown away with the work that Karol produced. Every aspect of the day has been caught in the most amazing natural style and we couldn’t be happier with the pictures and the story they tell of our wedding.
Karol is an absolute gentleman with a very professional but relaxed and calm attitude. Nothing was a problem. We both couldn’t recommended him highly enough.
Thanks again Karol, it’s been a pleasure.

Karol was our photographer in August 2017, after a lengthy search for our wedding photographer we came across his website and were instantly drawn to the quality of his wedding photos. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and made us feel at ease from start to finish.

There was so many amazing photos we struggled to select the perfect ones for our Wedding album. When we submitted our first draft we asked Karol for some advice and he helped us with the second draft which we ended up choosing, he even invited us to his home so we could get it just right. On the day that Karol delivered our wedding album we were blown away with the quality of the photos, Karol catches moments without you even knowing and really went above and beyond what we hoped for. We’ve had so many comments on how beautiful and unique our album is and we will cherish the memories forever.

We would definitely recommend Karol to anyone looking for a photographer, can’t thank you enough. Karen & Nicky 🙂

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

Laura and James Horton January 19, 2018 Wedding DateOctober 7, 2017

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. 🙂
