Where does one start in giving feedback on Jozef! We had an absolutely SENSATIONAL experience working with Jozef Povazan Photography. He is a true artist and master of his work. He takes wedding photos to a whole other level. The photos were beyond anything we could have imagined,

We first saw Jozef in action over 2 years ago at my sisters wedding and we were blown away by this silent Ninja that was unnoticed by all the wedding guests. When we witnessed Jozef climbing trees, jumping into bushes, getting down and dirty just to capture the perfect shot, we knew we had found our Photographer!

To trust a photographer with your wedding day is the most unconditional kind of trust... There can be no mistakes, no short comings and the couple's dependence on their photographer is unforgiving. In Jozef you know you're in capable and professional hands. At every step of the way we have felt comfortable and energized by Jozef and his work is simply masterful. Being married in Victoria at Hatley Castle and reception at Grand Pacific Hotel, Jozef never missed a beat. We had a lot of travel back and forth and he made all of our requests happen! My families love of horses was vital to our special day and he made sure that our horse and carriage ride was a highlight in the pictures.

He's personable, honest, direct, and has such a distinct and gorgeous photography style. He was easy to work with and responsive leading up to the wedding. He went over everything and helped us ladies pose for photos, which was just a great little perk of his services. On the day of the wedding, Jozef was punctual and worked his tail off! One of the biggest comments from our guests was how great Jozef was and how dedicated to getting the perfect shots he was. He also ensured that we got all the shots in but were fully present and enjoying our wedding. Once we took our couple shots we barely noticed he was there the rest of the night. Our photos are so special and we have one of kind shots to remember our perfect day for a lifetime and we have Jozef to thank! I highly recommend his services to everyone! You won't regret it! He was always super responsive to both emails and voicemail's. The days leading up to our wedding he made sure to check in and see if there were any last minute things we needed, and to confirm all the necessary details. He was prompt showing up on our wedding day, and did an awesome job capturing everything we asked him to, and all in between! We had a blast doing all different pictures with him...he is really creative and comes up with things you would never think of, and it's so exciting knowing our pictures will be so unique and reflective of us.

We are so grateful to have met Jozef and look forward to the next life event in which his lenses will be called upon. We see Jozef as "our" photographer and see him like a part of the family! How many people can say they have one for life...? After a few shots with Jozef, we know you will feel the same.

THANK YOU JOZEF :)

Jozef Povazan was the perfect photographer for our wedding. He is an extremely talented individual and has an immense knowledge of his craft. He is able to achieve amazing results from photos, even in imperfect conditions. He views your wedding as a story and captures organic moments as they unfold that depict the true joy present at your event. He also possesses an incredible work ethic. At our wedding, he was constantly on the move and was always looking for the perfect position to take the next set of pictures from. He was very flexible and willingly captured any requested shots. His personable nature made people relax for the more formal photos and multiple guests remarked positively on his presence. He even managed to get reluctant toddlers to sit still and smile for family photos! Yet, he is equally adept at stealthily taking shots so that you almost forget that he is there. Despite his extremely imposing schedule following our wedding, involving a significant amount of travel, he was able to have our photos ready on time and personally met with us to deliver the high-resolution photos. If you are looking for a photographer who has mastered his art and delivers an impressive product in a professional and charming manner then Jozef is the photographer for you.

Fabulous Photos, Flexible and fun!

We loved working with Jozef and you will too! Both my husband and I believe we are un-photogenic so picking the right photographer who we felt comfortable could get pictures of our big day was important to us both. Jozef photographed my brothers wedding years ago so I thought I would give him a call and when we met with him before our wedding we had so much fun he had us laughing as we shared our story and planned our big day. Our engagement shoot was on a nice Sunday day (we rescheduled a couple times to get a sunny day!) and the wedding day was in the rain -- Jozef was flexible and adapted beautifully despite the weather -- there are hundreds of amazing photos from both of our shoots. Thanks Jozef!

Fabulous photography!

Big “thank you” to Jozef for his amazing photography skills! Jozef photographed our wedding this past April 2018, and he did a fabulous job! He is super personable, and he was so easy to deal with throughout the whole process, making it a very positive experience. He’s funny as well, so rest assured that there will be a lot of genuine smiles in your photos. I can’t say enough good things about him and his work. Jozef, thank you so much!

What an amazing, talented man - wow!! Jozef is a true professional and artist. He is hilarious, but also ready to get down to business when it is needed. It was insanely hot, and my husband was about ready to give up, but Jozef was able to motivate us to get amazing shots that will last us a lifetime. I cannot thank him enough - our children's children will see these photos! He makes everyone feel at ease and comfortable. He does not just take a photo, he makes art - what a special person. We would absolutely recommend Jozef to everyone!! He is a rockstar at what he does.

How can I possibly put in to words how wonderful Jozef was... AMAZING! Not only is he a true artist, his passion for photography is like none other. He will do anything for the perfect shot, he will jump bounds to do so. Jozef was the first vendor I booked for our wedding & I thank my lucky stars that I did so. He understood what we were looking for & I know he captured it in photos. My trust in his craft & talent is 100%. Professional yet personable. He was patient yet so organized with the right amount of humour. We cannot wait to see our photos & know they will be beautiful.
Jozef, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Thank you for capturing our day through a story of photographs. We not only had a blast, we truly enjoyed your company. You deserve all the credit in the world. We are so grateful & cannot wait to work with you again!

Jozef was an absolute pleasure to work with! He made us feel so comfortable, and what I loved the most was that he encouraged us to just be ourselves and not worry about our photos, just to enjoy the moment. And as a result, we had such amazing candid shots! I have to say I actually completely forgot Jozef was around to take photos. He made himself blend in and was never in our faces taking photos (aside from our family photos ect) He allowed us to enjoy the moment and not get distracted with posing. He captured the perfect moments for us in the most beautiful and artistic way. I would absolutely recommend Jozef. His style is one of a kind, and his photos clearly demonstrate that.

Jozef was a real pleasure to work with. He has a real passion for his work and shares it through his conversations and his finished product. We were blown away with his shots, they were true art. He treated us so well and was very easy to work with on our various shoots. He made them very enjoyable and made us feel very comfortable. Jozef's creativity and ability to think outside the box gave us our most memorable shots during out pre wedding and wedding events. Jozef gets 5 Stars from us!

Jozef was amazing! We were nervous about being in front of a camera and he made it easy and enjoyable! He was flexible, quick to reply and fun. He was very professional but didn't make you feel like you were at a stuffy photo shoot. Jozef encourages you to be yourself and has fun with you. He took gorgeous photos on our wedding day and some beautiful candid shots that capture real, honest moments that are worth every penny. I would hire him again and again!
