We are so thrilled with Pawel, he has captured even more of the magical moments that we knew happened on the day. Pawel was so creative with every shot and we had so much fun trying out new poses and places! Thanks so much for such an incredible job we are obsessed looking through the photos!

Pawel photographed my friends wedding two years ago & he came highly recommended, so we were relieved when he was available to photograph our wedding. He is an amazing photographer. He was very easy to work with. He knows exactly what he’s looking for & gets the perfect shots! We are so delighted with our wedding photographs, thank you Pawel.

Pawel is an alternative fine art photographer and he delivers exactly that. We got married on 9th July 2016 at Killyon Manor and Pawel told our love story ❤ we will cherish our photos and are so delighted we chose Pawel. Pawel also co-ordinates as part of his role so he was an asset on the day and ensures you use all the naturally occurring opportunities. The photos capture natural moments, but also moments Which take advantage of the surroundings and emotion on the day. We loved spending time with Pawel on our wedding day. Pawels personality is reflective, considerate and precise, he pays strong attention to detail. All these qualities along with his talent make him an amazing photographer and I would highly recommend him Xx thank you Pawel love Róise and Aidan

Andrew and I would like to say a big thank you to Pawel for our incredible wedding pictures and the beautiful slideshow that he created. Pawel did not just photograph our wedding but also beautifully captured little details, the relationships between us and our guests and so perfectly the mood and essence of the the day. I would highly recommend the documentary style photography that Pawel uses as it is so real. The slideshow that Pawel created had the most incredible music, Pawel (being a musician himself) used fairly unknown songs that I had never heard of before, and despite this, the music was so fitting and I could not have chosen any better.Even though Andrew and I both live in Dubai, it was so easy to communicate with Pawel our needs and requirements. He is utterly professional and made everyone feel at ease. We also had a couple of laughs with him and the photopgraphs also captured some of the silly moments that Andrew and I had on the day.Pawel, thank you so so much. With much love, 
Aneesa and Andrew.

You have no idea how happy myself and Graham are with the photos you took at our wedding last month, I knew they would be good from seeing your previous work but you have some how surpassed what we could have hoped for! It was an absolute pleasure having you there on the day, great giggles and fun had all round! Thank you

I booked Pawel over a year before our wedding because I fell in love with the style of his photos. This was a great decision! We could not be happier with how beautiful our wedding photos turned out. He has a wonderful eye for what works and I feel like he was able to tailor the photos to our personalities and to the feel that we wanted for our wedding. Our photos really are a work of art, just breathtaking! Neither my husband nor I are the most comfortable people in front of the camera, and Pawel made us very comfortable. At times, we forgot he was even there! Pawel was very cooperative with us and responded to all of our queries right away. I highly recommend him.

Myself and Stephen can’t begin to thank Pawel enough for our beautiful wedding photos. The long hours spent on our wedding day and his friendly and professional manner throughout the whole planning and on the day itself made him a pleasure to deal with. We got our pictures back within 3 weeks of the wedding, so we are thrilled.
We met Pawel before we had a venue booked as we knew no matter where we got married, we had to have him photograph it and we didn’t think twice, his photos are unmatched.
Pawel arrived at our wedding early and was so relaxed and very friendly to everyone. It made having photos taken so much easier but most of the time, we didn’t even realise he was taking them. We were so lucky with the weather and we got to walk around the grounds of our venue which resulted in so many breathtaking photos.
Pawel did not miss a thing, the candid moments between family members that Pawel captured so beautifully will be treasured. Everybody at the wedding was really impressed to see Pawel staying and taking pictures so late. We really appreciate the long hours that he put in and he caught it all.
As we are sharing our photos now, people are blown away, as are we. The photos really are a work of art. We are going to have a very tough time picking only a selection for an album. Can I make 10? If you are considering having Pawel capture your wedding, you will not regret it!

Thank you so much Pawel!
All the best,
Ann-Marie & Stephen HarveyReply

    Just to add a comment from a guest at our wedding :
    “How can such a understated, calm photographer take such beautiful photos. Love Love Love.. He was literally the most inconspicous wedding photographer ever and these pictures are out of this world” – Couldn’t say it better myself! :)

The most amazing day captured by Pawel, people have said to us that our photos look like they are out of a magazine shoot! So happy with our photos and their attitude I was so relaxed the whole day and knew and trusted that they would capture every moment and they did! Could not highly reccommend Pawel enough! 5 stars!

We were married on 30th December last and I received my photographs from Pawel last week. The photographs are stunning. If you like his style on the website, that is what you will get in your wedding photos.

Like other posters have commented, Pawel and Greg bring an unassuming and relaxed presence to the wedding preparations. Pawel does not intrude in proceedings or give much direction – where he did it was wise and needed- and it paid dividends in the photographs we received. We are not the most comfortable on front of the camera but it seemed easy with Pawel on the day. Other than that he was organised and on top of things. He and Greg worked hard and I received my photos very quickly- over 1200 of them.

Overall I would give Pawel 5 stars and would advise anyone who likes this style of photography to choose him if you can get him!

Thanks, Deirdre and Kenny.

Could not recommend Pawel highly enough, I saw his work online and booked him on the spot. Himself and his assistant worked so hard on our wedding day, all my guests commented on our photographer. They had all the equipment, stayed until after the last dance only stopping to have some food during the day.

We are currently on honeymoon in Cambodia and received our wedding pics yesterday, we could not be happier! He nailed it! Exactly what we had hoped for, got the family/usually pics but also got some beautiful alternative/arty pics – which we are more excited by! Love his work! Himself and his assistant are really artists and are so talented.

Not only did they do an amazing job but we had so much fun with them on the wedding day, they made us feel relaxed, like they were are friends but at the same time these guys are the most professional guys you will ever meet! They really added to our wedding day, booking them was the best thing we did :-)

My self and Orla just wanted to thank you & Greg so much for making us so comfortable on our wedding day during all the photos. We really enjoyed having the photos taken and that was due to your professionalism and frendly nature. I was always going to be a critic considering I work with a camera every day but im so happy how the day went and couldn’t have imagined anyone else capturing what was a very very special day in our lives.

    I had Pawel & his assistant Greg as my wedding photographer in November 2014 & could not recommend them more. You wouldn’t even realise that they’re there but they perfectly captured all the important parts of the day. All my guests have been complementing his work ever since. Very good & professional to deal with- I would have no hesitation in recommending Pawel to any future brides : )

    Hi Pawel,
    Just sending a massive thank you from myself and Jez for our amazing wedding photos from Mount Druid 27/09/2014. You really captured the right moments for us! Thanks a million!Reply

  • Melanie & Phil

    If you are looking for an alternative wedding photographer, you definitely can’t go wrong with Pawel Babenca. We got married in Italy on 5 August 2014. Pawel and his assistant photographer Greg were both a pleasure to work with. They were creative, professional and their documtary style photography really captured the story, beauty and all of the emotion of our wedding day. We got over 1500 photographs from Pawel on a very stylish USB key within 3 weeks of our wedding day. We were totally blown away with them. Pawel and Greg captured so many beautiful moments throughout the day. I cannot recommend him enough!Reply

  • Deirdre and Paul

    THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE WORLD-no doubt! Paul and i love every single photo of our wedding. Absolutely tremendous work by Pawel – so creative, arty, stylish and romantic. Would recommend to anyone with an upcoming wedding. Photographs are such an important part of the wedding and so glad we had Pawel to capture all the moments that we ll have forever.
    Thank you PawelReply

  • Sandra & Stuart

    We were so pleased when we found Pawel’s website as his candid style of photography was exactly what we wanted. We booked him without meeting him and after meeting, we were confident we had made the right decision. Pawel is friendly, unpretentious and highly creative. He made the post wedding shoot really good fun, and was almost invisible during the ceremony and reception, getting some great candid images. We are absolutely delighted with our finished wedding images and it’s going to be a real struggle to pick which ones we want in an album, or in frames, as there are so many good ones. Now that Pawel is working with a second shooter (Greg, who is also really friendly), you get images from two perspectives during the ceremony & reception, and both the bride & groom’s pre-wedding preparations can be captured. I would highly recommend Pawel, you won’t be disappointed by the experience & the images.Reply

  • Dee & Paddy

    Pawel, we are absolutely delighted with the photos!! Soooooo happy :) They are stunning. I can be really uncomfortable getting my photograph taken so I said if I had 5 nice photos at the end of the day I would be happy. I honestly have hundreds. You captured every detail of the day perfectly and were so discrete. I would book you again in a heartbeat – money very well spent. You are AMAZINGLY talented. Thank you so much

    Pawel, we want to thank you so much for the beautiful photos of our wedding at The Millhouse on 22nd March. We absolutely love them!
    Everyone just looks so natural and at ease. That, I’m sure, is an art in itself!! You and Greg just blended in and captured the emotion of the day perfectly.
    As time goes on, our memories may fade but we will always have these photos to look back on and remember this fantastic day!

    Adrian and I would like to thank Pawel for the fantastic images he produced for our wedding in Ballymagarvey. The photos are stunning and truly capture the essence of the day. Pawel and Greg were amazing to deal with, highly professional and an absolute joy on the wedding day, we couldn’t recommend them highly enough. A huge thank you to you both.Reply

    Pawel, we got the usb in the post yesterday and the photos are absolutely amazing. I knew they’d be fantastic but I’m totally blown away. Thanks so much to yourself and Greg.Reply

    Dear Pawel, Just a note to thank you for our beautiful photos. You did such a brilliant job capturing the day and it was lovely to work with you. You made us feel at ease and took some stunning shots, we love them all. Thanks again, Claire & AlanReply

  • Cornelia + Liam

    Dear Pawel, we are so so happy with all of the photographs you took on our wedding day at the wineport lodgel!!! Even though it was raining you managed to capture some very special and beautiful moments. Our friends and family didn’t even realize you were there taking pictures of them. The party pictures are incredible as well! We can still feel the crazy atmosphere!!! Thank you so much! We are over the moon. All the best, Cornelia and LiamReply

  • Shay Deegan

    Pawel did an amazing job on our wedding recently. He was almost invisible during the day and he took some beautiful natural shots. His work is consistently good and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Stop thinking about booking him and just book.


  • Barry + Crisitina

    We got married at the Village ,Lyons Estate Leixlip on march 2nd this year (2013 ) . Very very happy with Pawel’s photographs . We
    found Pawel discreet/professional and friendly . He put all the photos on a stick for us so we could see every image taken . We had a tough time choosing which pics to print out as they were all great quality . Would highly recommend Pawel as your photographer .

  • Carolin

    I just wanted to let you know that we have looked at all the pictures now (we only came back from our honeymoon a few days ago) and we love them!! You have captured so much from our day including all the little things we hardly had time to notice . We are delighted with all your hard work, how you added your own touch to the pictures and we are very happy we picked you as our photographer for our wedding.

    Thanks again and we wish you all the best!Reply

  • There is no way to do justice with just words on how grateful I am to Pawel and his skills. He was a JOY to work with, his talent is unprecedented and as a USA bride getting married in Ireland I faced many challenges, but my photography was NOT one of them. Pawel streamlined his process for me, was flexible and produced the most ASTOUNDING images I could have ever imagined. We are forever thankful to him and for the memories we will hold tight to our hearts through his images!Reply

  • Cliona

    I got my photos in the post from Pawel this morning and I’m absolutely blown away by them! I feel a little bit overwhelmed, he gave us 1300 photos to choose from and now I’ve no idea how to make an album out of them as each one is absolutely amazing!!! I was also really surprised by how quickly I got the photos considering I’m only barely a week married!

    I had a really wonderful day, but there were a few elements that just made the day for me and Pawel was one of these factors! As soon as he came into the house he added a fun and laid-back presence to the chaos and it helped me to really relax and enjoy the morning of the wedding. The best thing today about seeing all the photos was seeing the little elements that I hadn’t noticed him snapping pictures of, there were so many little things he captured that I hadn’t even noticed were happening.

    If anyone out there is on the lookout for an alternative photographer who will capture your day in a special way look no further. I honestly can’t recommend Pawel enough, he went above and beyond what I expected of him and the results are just staggering. After the day is done you only have your memories and your photos and I am so glad I trusted Pawel with this important job!!!Reply

  • Aimee

    Hi Pawel, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for our wedding photos – we are delighted with how they turned out – just as we hoped for, you really captured our day so well! Best of luck for the future, we will be recommending you to all of our friends! Best wishes, Aimee and AdamReply

  • Catherine

    Hi Pawel
    A huge thankful for wonderful photographs of our wedding. The pictures are just so perfect and everything that could ever have hoped for. Thank you also for all your time and patience pre wedding taking us through everything and for spending so much time with us on the big day. Colm is thrilled with the pictures of the “band” and everyone we’ve shown the photos too are just blown away by them. The pictures are truly unique and capture the atmosphere and emotion of the day. We both look forward to when we can next have you to capture an event in our lives :)
    Huge Thanks
    Catherine & ColmReply

  • We are just back from honeymoon and I have to say we came home to the most beautiful photographs from Pawel. All our photographs are so natural and really capture the special moments throughout the day. It was a minefield trying to choose our wedding photographer but choosing Pawel was one of the best decisions we made in the run up to the wedding. Everyone who has seen our photographs so far have said how natural and beautiful they are, I cannot choose my favourite I love them all. Cannot thank him enough.

    Enjoy your wedding everyone the day goes by so fastReply
