We had Jakub as our photographer for our wedding at the Chauncey Hotel in Princeton, NJ in April 2019. Jakub was very responsive, available, helpful, fun and comfortable from the beginning. We booked him about 10 months out, and he checked in periodically to see how we were doing, and to help us build the plan for our big day. He started out with an easy phone call with us to learn more about us, and what we were looking for. He provided a ton of advice and comfort throughout what could be a really stressful process - he ended up creating our day-of schedule that our family and wedding party could follow which made it super easy for us. He arrived early on wedding day, and took getting ready photos, set up our first look, and then took all of the couple, family, and wedding party photos before the wedding started (at our request) so we could enjoy all parts of the wedding. He instructed us the whole time, and made us feel comfortable even though my (now) husband and I didn't love being in the spotlight and in front of the cameras. He ended up staying longer than scheduled to ensure he captured all of the fun. We then received all 600 (!!) pictures of the wedding only THREE days after our wedding day. They come in a super easy online link that you can share with family and friends to download and keep forever. We loved literally every single picture. They came out crisp, and clear but also very natural and real-looking. We cannot recommend Jakub enough as a wedding photographer - we can't think of one negative thing to say about him. If you want a reasonably-priced, relaxed, comfortable, fun, and REALLY good photographer for your wedding, book Jakub before he gets too famous!!" - Shay and Dion Privett, married April 26, 2019 More...

Jakob and his team were absolutely amazing to work with. The photos came out so beautifully we could not believe it. He was easy to work with, attentive to what we wanted, professional, and clearly knew just what to do to get the best shots out of us on a day when we had so much on our minds. We will be treasuring the photos for the rest of our lives and we cannot recommend Jakob highly enough. He travels, too, so give him a call! You will absolutely not regret it. I will be calling him for every special event for the rest of ever. More...

Love love love love love!!!!!!! My fiance Marius and I hired Jakub for our engagement and wedding and even though our wedding is many months away still, I had to write a review after working with him. Even before we showed up for the session, Jakub was there to answer styling, timeline and my 1,000 other questions in preparation for the big day. He went above and beyond in providing his insight and time and we hadn't even met yet! Once we set a date for our engagement shoot, he met us at the crack of dawn for a sunrise session and even though we were bubbling and awkward, he was such an amazing professional from the very beginning. Considerate, funny, and told us exactly what to do with our hands and arms and other extremities when we are otherwise super weird in front of a camera. We spent two and a half hours with him, and he kept every minute of the session fun and engaging. He had so many great ideas on locations, poses, his lighting is absolutely stunning, and it was just such a dream experience! It was so enjoyable, in fact, that we decided to do a second engagement shoot with him and our dogs in Central Park. Even though we have two somewhat stubborn (but adorable!) pups, Jakub was once again insanely patient, kind, and accommodating (even holding them while we got a few solo shots). Just a truly amazing, insanely talented and kind man and I cannot wait to work with him on our wedding day!One look at his images, and it's clear he is a rare talent, but it is his personality and professionalism that brings him a cut above the rest. We would hire him 10,000 times over!!! More...

Jakub is the perfect combination of professional and fun! He made us feel so relaxed and comfortable, it felt like an old friend was taking pictures of us. He listened to every suggestion, always tries something different, and every photo comes out phenomenal! Trying to choose which picture we wanted as a centerpiece for our living room was the hardest decision we ever had to make. Adored working with him and wouldn't choose anyone else! More...

I went into my proposal with my fiancé with no knowledge of how a photographer would work. Luckily for me, I found Jakub through Yelp. From the start, Jakub was extremely quick in responding to my inquiry and setting up next steps.We decided that John Street Park would be an ideal location for the proposal due to the view of the Brooklyn bridge. Within 24 hours, Jakub had sent me detailed plan that included the best time to incorporate the natural sun set, as well as the best way to keep him hidden so my fiancé wouldn’t know what was coming. I appreciated Jakub’s professionalism and his commitment to ensuring that the proposal would go exactly how I wanted it to go. On the day of the proposal, Jakub arrived to the location 30 minutes before hand to go over logistics and where he would be hidden. Because he was able to make such a great plan, Jakub captured some beautiful pictures of the proposal itself. After the shock had worn off, Jakub walked me and my fiancé through how the photo shoot would go. We were both a bit skeptical of photo shoots, as they never seem natural, but Jakub blew our expectations out of the water. Throughout the shoot, Jakub would ensure we were comfortable and ensured we couldn’t leave a spot until we got the picture that was just right. The photos we received were amazing. Much better than either of us thought they could be. We would highly recommend Jakub to anyone looking for a proposal/wedding photographer More...

We were put in touch with Jakub via our wedding planner for our wedding at the ladies pavilion on 8/27/18.

Jakub met the bride at 72/cpw and took photos with her and then walked in to the ladies pavilion for the ceremony. He captured the ceremony beautifully and then worked with us, in remarkable heat to take us to some beautiful spots of the park and captured some truly stunning backgrounds.

He directed us and made everything seem easy, jakub laughed with us and allowed us to forget he was there.

We had booked Jakub for two. Hours with the wedding and two hours in the afternoon after we had eaten, and Jakub must have been with us at least an additional hour, and he seemed to care more about getting the best shots than the time he had been with us.

We would recommend him highly.

Hi everyone. My girlfriend and I (now fiancé) had a trip to New York from South Africa a week back. As New York is an amazing city and the time was right I planned to propose to my girlfriend. After doing month of internet research I came across Jakub's site and I'm super happy I did.When we arrived, New York was mid way through a heat wave and my proposal plans changed a few times to accommodate the weather. Jakub was absolutely fantastic. He accommodated every change and pulled out all the stops to capture our once in a life time, New York proposal. Jakub is such a gentleman and very professional. I can highly recommend him. If you have any questions you are more than welcome to DM me anytime.Thanks again Jakub. Your effort will never be forgotten. More...

We seriously could not have asked for a better photographer. Jakub was punctual, friendly, understanding of the pressures of the day and captured everything we wanted to express in our wedding photos and more! There is a reason he's so well reviewed and popular. Hands down the nicest guy to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. Our wedding was on July6th and its July 25th as i'm writing this and he emailed us week ago to say that our photos are ready! So fast! Don't settle. Jakub is the BEST! More...

Jakub is a life-saver! Our first photographer fell through just 3 weeks before our wedding, but now we're glad that happened, because we got Jakub instead.
From the start, he was professional, patient, and committed to getting the best shots. We had three locations - a church, NYC skyline, and our reception venue. I was concerned about not knowing how to pose for the photos, but he graciously directed us to the best positions and angles for a variety of backdrops.
We had a couple hitches along the way, including a limo with a broken AC, but he was patient and helpful through all of it. (He even made sure that the drivers had the right address for the photo shoot when we forgot about it.)
Finally, the photographs themselves are breathtaking. Jakub is skilled at both portraits and candids, and had a real eye for a good photo. There were a couple times we thought we should leave a particular spot, but then Jakub would urge us to just give it one more shot, and we're so glad he did. I generally don't like overly dramatic wedding photos, but with his guidance the pictures looked both natural and unique.
We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for high quality photography and an awesome guy to work with!

We had the pleasure of working with Jakub on our wedding day (22.02.18) and he was just fabulous on every level!

We had travelled to NY from the UK for a destination wedding and so we had never met Jakub (our planner had put us in touch with him). We had booked a particularly lengthy session with him too so we were taking quite a risk. It was the best risk we have ever taken and so worth the time and money we invested in Jakub's skills. His 'eye' for detail and what makes a great photograph is just amazing! He sees opportunities for great shots wherever you are, whatever the weather (we had rain pretty much all day - but from the photos and the smiles on our faces, you would never know that it was such a grey day).

His knowledge of our chosen NY locations was great (which really helped us) and he adapted to the weather conditions on the day by not only making other destination suggestions but also by making the most of the weather we had. He also accommodated our request for some extra time as we felt we'd like additional shots of our family.

Despite being soaked through, he did not complain once. We loved his spontaneous ideas too - he took photographs we'd never even thought of but absolutely love. I never thought we'd find a photography session so enjoyable!

The photographs were available to view just 5 days after our wedding and they have surpassed all of our expectations. The quality is excellent and he has really captured the 'feel' of our day and us as a couple. We have no regrets and would definitely recommend Jakub to our friends and family. We would use him again in a heartbeat. Such a fabulous photographer and genuinely lovely, patient and professional guy. Thank you!

The overall experience with Jakub was amazing from start to finish. Starting with the photo shoot itself, Jakub was kind, professional, and makes you feel at home in-front if the camera. Jakub knows how to use angles, reflections, and other objects to get unique shots that most photographers tend to miss. After the shoot Jakub sent us our stunning photos, he did not disappoint. I would recommend Jakub to anyone. More...

I won a free print with Jakub online, so my fiance and I scheduled a session with him for our engagement photos. Jakub listened to our suggestions for location and added some of his ideas, and his guide for what to wear was immensely helpful. He was fun to work with and took triple the time he said he would, even taking some individual shots at the end we wanted.Above all, though, I was just so pleased with how our photos turned out. They're beautiful, the cityscapes in the background look great, and he did a great job with retouching. I highly recommend Jakub! More...

Jakub was wonderful to work with for both our engagement and wedding photos. We found him on facebook when he was offering a chance to win a free engagement shoot. He was amazing to work with and extremely creative. He sent us a great map of places in NYC that we could try to use. We really wanted our dog to be involved and he was able to make that happen! For the wedding, Jakub traveled to southern jersey and was extremely professional / creative. We spoke a few weeks prior to the event to get a sense of the shots/ timing for everything and we stuck the schedule almost perfectly. The photos came back in 2 weeks, which was absolutely amazing! All of my friends and family can't stop raving about how amazing they all look. There were so many great one's to choose from. More...

We truly had a wonderful time working with Jakub during our wedding on April 7th, 2018. From beginning to end, Jakub was extremely fun, professional, and flexible making our special day an unforgettable experience. My wife Keri is also a professional photographer and knew exactly the type of high caliber photography she wanted for our wedding. After searching meticulously through various photographers, she knew Jakub was the one.

Jakub arrived early on our wedding day and his high energy and level of attention to detail remained constant throughout the entire day. We had a military wedding that required some extra protocol and events in which Jakub easily catered to. Not only is Jakub great at photographing the formal wedding shots but he also has the distinctive eye to capture the spontaneous and fun moments we look back on and can’t help but to smile. One area of his photography we love is his expertise in flash photography. We had our wedding ceremony in a very large, 100+ year old church with limited lighting and Jakub really made the church come alive through his work.

For those of you who are looking for a photographer, I hope you never have to experience someone who is slow to reply or even worse, someone who backs out. The professionalism in Jakub really shines with his responsiveness and punctuality. These traits may seem miniscule up front but will weigh in heavily as you get closer to your wedding day and especially the day of. You can plan all you want for your wedding but be prepared to go off script, because it will happen. This is where Jakub is cool as a cucumber reminding you to have fun while going with the flow to make every moment, planned or unplanned, another opportunity to create something beautiful for you. We highly recommend Jakub to everyone.

Jakub was arranged through our wedding planner so we had no idea until a few weeks before who we had. I hadn't seen any of his work and had to put all my trust into him. It paid off!!! Jakub was brilliant!!! We are a couple who don't really like our photos being taken and he knew exactly what to do to make us both feel at ease and we were very impressed with how quick we received our photos and they were exactly what we wanted. Thank you :) More...

All we can say is WOW! My fiancé and I had our engagement session with Jakub yesterday and he is truly amazing!! We have never done a photo shoot and felt a bit strange poseing for pictures but he made us feel so comfortable, making our experience so much fun, we didn't want it to end! He showed us some teasers during the session and we couldn't believe how beautiful the pictures were coming out (and we are not picture people at all)! Now we are patiently waiting for the finished product which we do not doubt will blow us away! So so happy we got to work with Jakub, if you book him, you will not be disappointed! Thank you again Jakub! More...

Excellent photographer! I came across Jakub's services via the web and after browsing his website online I decided to reach out to him about scheduling a shoot for my engagement photos. From the beginning, Jakub's communication was excellent which made everything easier since I'm not from New York. Jakub arrived early to our engagement session and was even incredibly understanding when we showed up 10 minutes late. He took us to all the great spots within Central Park to capture gorgeous engagement photos (in the snow)!

I would highly recommend his services to anyone who lives or anyone traveling to New York! I also received access to my photos via his gallery so quickly I couldn't believe it. Photos came out excellent and we are looking forward to working with him again in the future!

Thank you so much!

Jakub was my wedding photographer 2 weeks ago - I could not imagine better service! He is very nice and patient and what is the most important, he knows what he is doing. He sent me photos 3 days after my wedding ! When most people wait months to get photos. And I am very surprised how beautiful photos he got. I do not like myself on pictures usually but on his I love all off them ! They are so beautiful that I have big problem to decide which ones to put on the walls I would recommend him to everybody who wants to have professional service and beautiful high quality photos !

I requested Jakub's services after seeing his stunning photos from a Christmas event I attended. Jakub did the head-shots for my companies new website and they are stunning. He was the consummate professional, very timely and had the photos ready within a day or two. While he was taking our photos he was friendly, attentive and made sure we all got the picture we wanted. His set up / breakdown was prompt, causing no disruption to our work day.If only I had more websites to fill up with his photos, I will recommend Jakub to anyone in need of a skilled and professional photographer.

I am extremely late with this post, but I couldn't let the summer go by without sharing my experience with Jakub. He was working an actor's networking event and gave me his card. We met in central park where we scouted different locations to take pictures. Next to a tree, by the water, on the boulders, everything made great backdrops. He was patient, funny, easy-going, and now for the most important part... the pics came out great! You set a date, meet him at a location, take pics, he'll give you a  code to his website to  access your pics in a couple of days, you choose the ones you like, He touches them up and sends it back to you and Ta Da! Easy! More...

I loved my session with Jakub. He was patient, sweet, extremely professional and fun! I usually feel pretty uncomfortable in front of a camera but he helped me with my poses, gave directions and tiny adjustments that made me feel much more relaxed very quickly. He really took his time and made sure I got the best out of the session. We spent almost 2 hours exploring Dumbo and I'm very very happy with the results. I would absolutely work with him again and would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat! :) More...
