Martin photographed our wedding from beginning to end at Orchardleigh, Somerset. Prior to the day he relaxed us both during a pre-wedding shoot. On the day he arrived during my preparations and was completely unobtrusive and everyone felt totally at ease. The lack of electricity (and therefore light) was taken in Martin’s stride and although he was with us until around 10pm, his smile and enthusiasm never faltered. The photos he has produced are spectacular and will ensure we can cherish our day for years to come. We wholeheartedly recommend Martin to any couple and have done so. All our guests have commented on the stunning photos and we will certainly to look to use him for any future projects.

Memories of our very special wedding day held at St John’s and then the Assembly Rooms, Bath will be easy to treasure because of the incredible lengths which Martin went to, ensuring he captured every little detail and magical moment that made up the day. Nothing was too much, or too trivial for him to do. The angles of the shots were inspirational: he knelt, he lay on his back, he even shimmied up a ladder! His choice of shots was original and he thought out of the box. He put both children and adults at ease, so much so, that we have some stunning photographs. In fact, they are all amazing!

PhotoDabek was our photographer for our wedding at Dartington Hall in Devon in May 2012. We couldn’t be happier with our album – Martin really captured the day and took some beautiful shots. We’d highly recommend PhotoDabek as a first class wedding photographer.

Martin and his assistant did a wonderful job of photographing our wedding in May aboard the SS Great Britain. The photos look fantastic and really capture the mood of the day. Lots of our guests have commented on how professional they look and I’d recommend him to others in a flash!

The most amazing photographer. Thanks to Martin we have beautiful photographs to treasure of our ‘Cherish the Dress’ Photoshoot in Paris. They are better than our wedding day photos. The shots are so beautifully framed. Martin’s friendly, natural approach allows you to relax in front of the camera while he captures you at your most flattering angle. Great quality pics at great prices. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Martin Dabek of photodabek was our wedding photographer. We got married in December at Thornbury Castle at a late afternoon service. Thornbury was always going to provide significant lighting challenges to any photographer and Martin was recommended to us as a winter wedding specialist. Martin is very competitively priced and has a wide range of packages, varying from a CD of your photos to beautiful albums. He also provides A5 hard back photo books which we found ideal for our parents. Martin’s service was exceptional. He was proactive throughout, quick to respond and was able to design and agree the album layout via e-mails and PDFs which was extremely useful as we do not live locally. During the wedding Martin was very low key and unobtrusive, which resulted in some very natural and unposed photos. Finally the quality of Martin’s photos was exceptional. Considering the significant lighting challenges, the quality of the photos was exceptional. We were also very impressed with the albums, Martin laid out the photos so the album told the story of the day.
We have no complaints with photodabek and would be quick to recommend to others.

We got married at Rookery Manor in May and Martin and colleague from photodabek were there to snap away… And what a fab job they done. They captured every single moment. Lots of natural pictures which is what we wanted to… Will definitely recommend photodabek…. Thanks.

Martin did a fantastic job at our wedding on 14th July 2012 at the Bristol Council House! The photos were beautiful, elegant and really caught the moment. Every time we look at our photos, including the video montage, wedding album (which we love as we ordered the A3 size!) just brings back all those wonderful memories from the day. He is extremely efficient and his photographer is of an extremely high standard and completely non-intrusive on the day. The photo studio at the evening reception also provided enjoyable and fun photos of guests! He is a really genuine guy and a joy to have him share our special day with us!
My husband and I got married in June 2011 at Coombe Lodge in Somerset. Martin Dabek came recommended by a number if friends of ours. We had seen the way he had beautifully captured their wedding so we had every confidence in using him for ours. I particularly enjoyed the engagement shoot, really gets you used to being in front of the camera and banishes any insecurities you may have. The day itself was very wet, it hardly stopped raining. Martin adapted really well and got soaked in the meantime but always had a smile on is face!
Overall we were thrilled with our photos. Family and friends of ours have commented on Martin’s unique little tricks that ensure photos are natural and guests look happy and relaxed.

Our wedding took place at Priston Mill in October 2011. The photography was of high quality and we have some fantastic pictures. Martin and Bryan had a lovely manner and made everyone feel very relaxed therefore the shots were very natural. Martin is very open to ideas and is very creative which meant we had some very fun shots on the adventure playground!! Will definately be using PhotoDabek in the future.
