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!Sent on 18/07/2018

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.Sent on 09/09/2017

I am a photographer who loves to do what you just described so perfectly in your words. Create and capture stories which will last for generations and will be shared with love and happiness for years to come. I am so happy for you that despite hot hot Kelowna weekend and fires smokes around you lived your wedding celebration and shared your love and energy together. It is always a great feeling to see brides and grooms happy looking back at their images from couple weeks back. I am so excited for you and I am looking forward to design a wedding album for you which will give this story a tangible printed dimension which will then age together with you and with children of your children :) THANK YOU for allowing me to be part of your day. Talk to you soon. Cheers, Jozef

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 :)Sent on 23/09/2016
Povazan Photography's reply:Hi Kiana, it is all about people in life, and I pretty much have luck to meet and photograph amazing people. It really feels for me after photographing your sister Teila wedding and now yours kind of like being a part of your family circle. I knew how your dad is going to enjoy himself at your day, families laughing together and having blast at crazy reception dancing and of course you and Jason, genuinely caring about each other and being yourselves in front of the cameras. And that is not an easy task, and you know it since Jason is the filmmaker. Your images shows your feelings for each other and candid priceless moments of two families becoming one. I always wish before any wedding if people just forget about me that I exist and then I can unfold your story as unobtrusive as I can. Your wedding party and guests were awesome and I am so honoured I could photograph your big day. Wish you all the best and looking forward to see you again. Cheers, Jozef

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.Sent on 19/07/2017
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 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!Sent on 07/11/2016
Povazan Photography's reply:Hi Sharan and Raman. Enjoying yourselves on your wedding day is the key to my story telling. And I know how difficult it had to be with 1000 guests watching you on that day, and I am so thrilled to hear kind words you said about me and my work. I love to create unforgettable stories and I was honoured to capture your story for you. You are so easy going and genuine couple it is just fun and joy to work with you. Had a blast at both pre wedding life style portraits and also at your wedding day. Your story caught so much attention on my website that it looks like creativity is one of my sought after skills in wedding photography. Thank you for your testimonial and I wish you a very enjoyable life journey and looking forward to see you again in future. Jozef
