    Great experience

    We contacted BDFK photography for a last minute elopement session and they were very quick to get back to us. Marcin & Dorota are incredibly passionate about their work and it truly shows in the images they capture. They are very professional and made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire process. They care a lot about getting the perfect lighting and having the perfect pose.
    Not only did they capture our day beautifully but they helped make it very special for us.

    Their price is very reasonable and I'd say that the quality of their work is well worth it. I would 100% recommend having Marcin & Dorota photograph your special moment.

    Adventure Elopement

    We could not be more thrilled we went with Marcin and Dorota. They were AMAZING, look no further for photographers in the Rockies. They truly brought all my visions to life and blew away all my expectation.

    We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to book photographers!

    Our [AWARD-WINNING - YES! AWARD-WINNING!!] wedding photos are photos that I'll treasure for the rest of my life. It’s no wonder these two are continuously nominated for awards - the quality of their work speaks for itself, but the quality of customer service -- is NEXT LEVEL! They delivered in EVERY ASPECT. The number of positive comments we received, along with the number of times that our photos have been shared, reposted and featured online is surreal. Thank you so much. We are forever grateful.10/10. BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS YOU’LL EVER FIND

    Magazine Worthy Photos!!

    Marcin and Dorota are a power couple!! We searched and creeped Instagram accounts of photographers for about a month before we even talked to anyone and in the initial communication with BDFK, we were confident in booking them. Besides the food and music, the photographers were the most important thing to us. We booked them very early and definitely wanted someone of quality and with amazing credentials. Just before our wedding they were named in the top 50 photographers in the World, and we were even more excited to have them shoot our wedding!!

    Thank you Dorota and Marcin for being easy to work with, fun to be around for 10 hours and easy going!!

    Dorota and Marcin are phenomenal photographers to work with. Their passion and excitement for the perfect shot is highly contagious and makes it easy to relax, laugh, and get naturally fun and authentic photos. They both have an amazing eye for detail too. From the background environment of the photo, to body movement, angles, and lighting. They have a ton of cameras, all of which get different types of shots, giving a huge arrangement of different looks and feels for the photos. We are so thankful for the images they have given us. They made us feel like we were part of a work of art, and once we saw our final photos, we knew that to be true. They are a genuine, fun, and insanely easy couple to get along with, and we had such a wonderful time with them. My fiancé and I can't recommend them enough! :) Thank you again Dorota & Marcin!!

    Marcin and Dorota did an absolutely great job shooting our engagement. They were a joy to work with. The adventure shoot with them was not just about the photos but was a true adventure indeed. We love the photos and more than anything we loved spending the day in the beautiful mountains with this couple. #bestphotographers #loveallover

    Best photographers imaginable! Great personalities and amazing product!

    Honestly, I can’t say enough amazing things about B.D.F.K. Photography! First of all, Dorota and Marcin are such a pleasure to work with and are so much fun it felt easy and comfortable to be in front of the camera. My husband and I loved the experience; in fact, we already had 3 sessions with them this past year – an engagement session, adventure session, and after the wedding session! We absolutely love their creative ideas and their ability to capture the perfect angle and just the right amount of light to create a truly breathtaking incomparable photo! Not only are they able to capture stunning artistic photos but they are also able to capture the raw emotional photos that capture those very special moments. Oh! And they were REALLY fast to give us all of our photos after each session! We HIGHLY recommend B.D.F.K. Photography; you won’t find a better photographer team!

    Une excellente session photo

    Nous avons vécu une expérience incroyable. Marcin et Dorota sont très professionnels, nous n’avions jamais fait de shooting photos auparavant. Ils nous ont naturellement mis à l’aise et guidé afin que la session photo se fasse de façon agréable. La météo n’était vraiment pas bonne lors de notre session, malgré tout ils ont réussi à faire des clichés exceptionnels et nous ont proposé de poursuivre la session le lendemain avec une meilleure météo. Merci encore pour le travail réalisé et pour cette expérience unique. Ombeline & Kevin.

    Simply the BEST

    The short summary: I have never worked with such an incredible pair of people in my life. I count myself beyond lucky that I was able to spend my elopement day with such a kind and funny duo, let alone the beautiful beyond beautiful pictures they took of us that I cherish.

    The longer version:
    Our wedding was originally scheduled in 2020, and I booked with Dorota and Marcin in 2019 after finding their stunning and creative work on their website. We were particularly impressed with their use of color and their playfulness with natural light. From the first phone call with them, I felt 100% more calm about our wedding. Their work speaks for themselves, clearly, but what I could not have anticipated was the charismatic, hilarious, and incredibly thoughtful humans behind the camera.

    I was absolutely excited to marry my partner, but I have *always* dreaded having my picture taken. It is my least favorite activity. Needless to say – I had a lot of nerves/dread for wedding day photos, and these two put me at more ease than I could ever have imagined.

    When our wedding was postponed due to border closures, not only were Marcin and Dorota incredibly accommodating and helpful with rescheduling, but they also were terrific communicators throughout the pandemic. They sent us news from Canada (we live in Chicago) and kept us updated on the estimated reopening. I also sometimes received surprise beautiful pictures of the epic outdoors from them which lifted my spirits during a tough time! I actually had far more communication from them than I did our venue.

    We rescheduled 2020  2021  2022, and every time we had to change the date, they were so professional, prompt, and kind. As we inched our way closer to our 2021 date (we had already rescheduled for 2022), they contacted us that it looked like the border might open to U.S. citizens right before our 2021 date, and that they still had it on hold for us. We decided to go for it – and booked flights to go elope with Dorota and Marcin.

    We had a chat before we flew up to Calgary about what we’d like to do and go see. I laughed the entire call and felt completely at ease. We told them we trusted them, and they could bring us wherever, and we gave a couple ideas. They knew the hassle we had gone through with our wedding and even met us for a night prior for a bite to eat to welcome us to town.

    Our elopement day was pure magic. And by “pure magic,” I mean we had incredible experts in charge. Upon our request, they brought along their friend Michal who took the role of our officiant (we recommend him, too!). While I would have loved to do an adventure elopement, my partner did not feel up for it. I encourage you to check out their adventure portfolios, though. It’s too bad I really love my husband, because I would really like to elope again with them. We met them in the morning, and they did what they did best – captured our joy with award winning photography skills. I will treasure these photos all my life. At the last second, they suggested we switch gears and trekked over to BC to run around a waterfall. We felt like we were spending our elopement day with two old friends, as opposed to hired vendors.


    Like I said in the beginning, from even the quickest glance, you know that these two are masters of their craft. What I hope my review shines a light on, though, is how terrific these two are as people as well as photographers. I hope they had fun with us too, because now I want to have them document all future celebrations for our family. I might show up one day with a newly adopted pup. “Dorota and Marcin…more pictures! We have a dog now!”

    I am SO excited to work with them again in a month for our wedding ceremony. And it is shocking to me that I'm saying this about photographers, when I typically dread having mine taken. :)

    Thank you so much for a wonderful and fun beginning to our marriage and for capturing it with magnificent beauty. You are simply the best!
