" Can not recommend Radek enough, so professional, he even came to check out our venue with us in advance to find a great place to get images on the day. He listened to exactly what we wanted and blended in with our family and friends, we barely knew pics were being taken! From the little taster shots Radek has sent us we now can’t wait to receive the rest of our images!! "

" Radek was friendly and professional and we really appreciated his relaxed and informal style. He put us at ease but was also full of useful tips for posing for photos. "

Alison & Alexander - bride & groom. Wedding at Thief Hall.

" Fantastic photos that really captured the love and joy we all felt on our wedding day. Radek managed to make two very awkward people look graceful! We were nice and relaxed and got all the shots we wanted and more. "

Joanne & Edward - bride & groom. Wedding at Sandburn Hall.

" Radek photographed our wedding at Duncombe Park on the 12th July. We were both a bit stressed on the day, but Radek remained calm, friendly and discreet throughout and we've ended up with lots of beautiful memories of the key moments of our Wedding. He went beyond our expectations and was available ahead of the wedding to discuss and prepare. He listened to the specific photo requests we had, but was also creative in his photo choice and finally captured perfectly the spirit of the day. In summary - we recommend! "

Georgina & Mathieu - bride & groom. Wedding at Duncombe Park in Helmsley.

" Dear Radek, Thank you very much for the fab photos! It was lovely to meet you and we're glad you and your wife joined us for the evening. Best wishes "

Danielle & David - bride & groom. Wedding at Marriott Hotel in York.

" We hired Radek for our wedding last month and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! We met him and discussed our requirements before the big day and he was very happy to be approached at any time during the build up for any queries we had. On the day, Radek arrived early and was very friendly with everyone - we've had a lot of compliments from lots of guests about him! He made a really special effort with our youngest Bridesmaid as she was a little shy at first, and she really came out of her shell. Radek worked really hard and the photos produced are stunning - we're delighted and would highly recommend the service. "

Abby & Andy - bride & groom. Wedding at The Grange Hotel in York.

" We were very fortunate to enlist the service of Radek after our original wedding photographer bailed out on us with less than six months to go, and we were only sorry we hadn't found him sooner! The package he provided was exceptional value for money and had the bonus of an 'Engagement Shoot' as part of the deal which allowed us to get to know how he worked and him to find out who we were! Our intention from the outset was for an informal photography package to record our big day and we were not disappointed - the photos really captured the mood and ambience of the day and we barely noticed him at all! All in all, we cannot recommend Velvet Leaf Photography highly enough and would urge anyone to give them a serious look when planning your big day! "

Clair & Alex - bride & groom. Wedding at Hazlewood Castle.

" Choosing the right people to photograph my special day was always going to be hard BUT i was lucky enough to find them. Radek was thoughtful, creative & a wonderful addition to my day. They were amazing with my children & guests with great ideas for the pictures. The photographs of the day were perfect and just as i have envisaged, the storybook has pride of place on display in my lounge and i would highly recommend them to anyone as i would definately use them again. "

Toni & Alan - bride & groom. Wedding at The Crown Hotel in Ripon.

" Fantastic service from first contact through to getting our finished albums. We were very pleased with the wedding photos and the way in which they were taken throughout the day. I would have no hesitation in recommending Radek and hopefully will be using him again in the future for a baby shoot! "

Sarah & James - bride & groom. Wedding at Wood Hall Hotel and Spa in Linton, Wetherby.

" We got married in Harrogate in September 2013. After much searching I came across Radek's online profile and was stunned by his portfolio. Radek is a very creative photographer who was 100% involved in what we wanted for our wedding photography from the very start. He welcomed suggestions and examples, and was all too happy to speak with us at length about our ideas for the day. On our wedding day Radek was completely professional - the perfect wedding photographer. Unintrusive yet never missing a moment, he has provided us with an absolutely gorgeous record of our day. Thank you so much Radek! "

Jessica & Tom - bride & groom. Wedding at The Cedar Hotel and The Harrogate Brasserie.

Angela & Jason - bride and groom. Wedding at The Grange Hotel in York

" Radek did our wedding photos for us in August 2013 in York. Radek was friendly, reassuring and flexible in his approach, offering various packages at different prices, we are very happy with the results which we had printed in a lovely bound book and would recommend him for any event. Many Thanks. "

Dani & Dave - bride & groom. Wedding at Marriott Hotel York.

" We feel very fortunate that we have found them! Wouldn't have thought of having "the bump" photographed but we are so glad we had it done. We wouldn't trust anyone else with our most special time - the pregnency - just like we wouldn't trust anyone else to capture the little personality of our new born child. They came to our house and made both sessions comfortable, relaxed and we had so much fun too:) They are very creative but also listening what you expect. The end results are stunning! We would recommend them to everyone! "
