Radek photographed our wedding at Duncombe Park on the 12th July. We were both a bit stressed on the day, but Radek remained calm, friendly and discreet throughout and we've ended up with lots of beautiful memories of the key moments of our Wedding. He went beyond our expectations and was available ahead of the wedding to discuss and prepare. He listened to the specific photo requests we had, but was also creative in his photo choice and finally captured perfectly the spirit of the day. In summary - we recommend!

We hired Radek for our wedding last month and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! We met him and discussed our requirements before the big day and he was very happy to be approached at any time during the build up for any queries we had. On the day, Radek arrived early and was very friendly with everyone - we've had a lot of compliments from lots of guests about him! He made a really special effort with our youngest Bridesmaid as she was a little shy at first, and she really came out of her shell. Radek worked really hard and the photos produced are stunning - we're delighted and would highly recommend the service.Abby & Andy - bride & groom. The Grange Hotel in York
We were very fortunate to enlist the service of Radek after our original wedding photographer bailed out on us with less than six months to go, and we were only sorry we hadn't found him sooner! The package he provided was exceptional value for money and had the bonus of an 'Engagement Shoot' as part of the deal which allowed us to get to know how he worked and him to find out who we were! Our intention from the outset was for an informal photography package to record our big day and we were not disappointed - the photos really captured the mood and ambience of the day and we barely noticed him at all! All in all, we cannot recommend Velvet Leaf Photography highly enough and would urge anyone to give them a serious look when planning your big day! Clair & Alex - bride and groom. Hazlewood Castle, York
Choosing the right people to photograph my special day was always going to be hard BUT i was lucky enough to find them. Radek was thoughtful, creative & a wonderful addition to my day. They were amazing with my children & guests with great ideas for the pictures. The photographs of the day were perfect and just as i have envisaged, the storybook has pride of place on display in my lounge and i would highly recommend them to anyone as i would definately use them again. Toni & Alan - bride & groom. The Crown Hotel in Ripon
Fantastic service from first contact through to getting our finished albums. We were very pleased with the wedding photos and the way in which they were taken throughout the day. I would have no hesitation in recommending Radek and hopefully will be using him again in the future for a baby shoot!Sarah & James - bride & groom. Wood Hall Hotel and Spa in Linton, Wetherby
We got married in Harrogate in September 2013. After much searching I came across Radek's online profile and was stunned by his portfolio. Radek is a very creative photographer who was 100% involved in what we wanted for our wedding photography from the very start. He welcomed suggestions and examples, and was all too happy to speak with us at length about our ideas for the day. On our wedding day Radek was completely professional - the perfect wedding photographer. Unintrusive yet never missing a moment, he has provided us with an absolutely gorgeous record of our day. Thank you so much Radek! .Jessica & Tom - bride & groom. Cedar Hotel and The Harrogate Brasserie
Radek was our wedding photographer on 5th of March 2012. We are so happy we chose him! Beautiful photos that really captured our day and we are really pleased with the results. I highly recommend him and will be booking him for the future...Kasia & Mariusz - Bride and Groom. York Registry Office
We hired Radek for our wedding at the Grange Hotel on the 25th August 2012 , he made us feel so special and was so pacient and supportive, would like to say a great big thank you for the excellent job he did. Will recommend him every time x...Angela & Jason - bride and groom. The Grange Hotel in York
Radek did our wedding photos for us in August 2013 in York. Radek was friendly, reassuring and flexible in his approach, offering various packages at different prices, we are very happy with the results which we had printed in a lovely bound book and would recommend him for any event. Many Thanks.Dani & Dave - bride and groom. Marriott Hotel, York
We feel very fortunate that we have found them! Wouldn't have thought of having "the bump" photographed but we are so glad we had it done. We wouldn't trust anyone else with our most special time - the pregnency - just like we wouldn't trust anyone else to capture the little personality of our new born child. They came to our house and made both sessions comfortable, relaxed and we had so much fun too:) They are very creative but also listening what you expect. The end results are stunning! We would recommend them to everyone! Agnieszka & Jarek - soon to be parents, York
