If you are obsessed with the great outdoors, earth tones and genuine feelings, then you just met your match.

My wife used to call me an artist, in a sarcastic way, but you know what? She is damn right! I love creating and demonstrating myself, I love capturing souls, not only smiles. I absolutely adore what I do!

I remember my first wedding, I was so stressed, my wife was due in 3 days, now I am not sure what I was stressed about, but all went very well, happy marriage and a happy Dad.

Why me?

Imagine you are sitting around a big box of photos with friends and family, there would be lots of talking, laughs, stories, jokes, maybe even a tear or two. Imagine that a few years ago you sent me an email, and that's how the story began…

Bart photographed our intimate February 2023 wedding in Oranmore, Co.Galway and we could not recommend him more! Bart is local to us and has captured our family's memories before: confirmation, first pregnancy etc. The quality and style of his images are always top notch and we had no doubt he would exceed our expectations once again. Bart can make anyone feel relaxed in front of the camera and always has plenty of ideas in terms of locations, poses, settings - creating timeless, candid photographs. He'd even dance to get our little baby girl to smile for the shot - and it worked! The connection and ease you find with Bart shows through in the final product. He makes you feel like you're just hanging out with a friend. If you're looking for a photographer for your big day who will make you and your loved ones relaxed and capture that true happiness - go and check out his work at and give him a call before he gets scooped up!

I don't even know where to start with Bart, he was more than a photographer to us on our wedding day! From the moment we met Bart at our engagement shoot and our very shy dog took to him straight away we knew he was the one for us. He got the most amazing photos of the 3 of us, photos we will now treasure forever! On the wedding day, Bart was a dream to have around, he was pretty much my second maid of honour as well as an incredible photographer. Bart was so relaxed, there was never any pressure on us, he got all the photographs we wanted in such a short space on time. When there was a lull in the day, Bart used that opportunity to get more snaps done. Bart is such a pleasure to be around and we are so honoured that he was part of our special day. Thank you for everything Bart, you are a true gent and worth your weight in gold

We met Bart and knew immediately that we wanted him to be our photographer. He is really cheerful and is very passionate about what he does. Bart was very flexible when we had to rearrange our date due to Covid and he was always available for a chat. Bart followed all Covid precautions and safety procedures from start to finish. The morning of the wedding he photographed the Bridal party in such a respectful way. He got so many beautiful shots but we hardly noticed he was there. Our priest commented on how respectful Bart was in the church, that he was a credit to his profession and that he was never in the way or blocking our guests from seeing the ceremony. Bart captured all the shots we asked for and did so in a very natural, relaxed way. He was very familiar with our Venue and knew where to get all the good shots. He was a big hit with all of our guests, who commented on how relaxed and fun he was. Bart stayed with us all day and never put us under any time pressure. He was happy to stay as long as we wanted him to. Bart was so quick in getting our photos to us and subsequently our album, which turned out beautifully. We could not recommend him highly enough!

We got married in December and were lucky enough to have Bart as our photographer. He is fantastic to work with - such a warm and happy person who genuinely makes you feel at ease. He had us laughing and smiling all day long with his infectious positivity - our guests loved him too honestly such a wonderful person. Looking back over our photos I'm amazed - they are beautiful! Bart you are so talented! He also did our engagement photos so I knew they would be beautiful but wow - so happy to have these memories forever! He asked us to pick our favourites for the album and it really took forever with so many fab shots to choose from. He is also professional and prompt - we had our photos so quickly after the wedding and he is always super quick to reply to any questions or concerns I had. Planning this wedding was so stressful in the run up with all the covid restrictions and constant changes but he was always so reassuring and helpful. Book this man for your wedding, seriously you will not regret it. Thanks for the memories Bart :) Zoe & Frank

Bartosz Kotulski was our photographer for our wedding in January. He is such a lovely friendly gentleman. He put us both at ease immediately. Neither of us like out photos being taken but Bart really made us feel comfortable. He gave us clear directions for our posed photos and for the documentary style photos we didn't even know he was there. The photos are beautiful. We chose a leather covered album which is just gorgeous! It took only 2months to receive our album. We are 100% happy that we chose magical memories for our photos.

Bart from Magical Memories was our amazing photographer for our wedding day. Where to begin? I actually can't compliment him enough. He was such a joy to work with. He made the day so relaxed with his kind, friendly and fun personality. He had us all laughing and smiling all day long and as for all the photos he took... he truly is an artist and fantastic at what he does. We had our first taster of photos on the wedding night which was a real treat to have and reminisce over and as soon as we returned from honeymoon he had a beautiful packaged wooden memory box with the memory stick with all our photos and lots of printed pictures too. His turnaround time is amazing. Our album is almost ready and he would have had it done instantly only for he was waiting on us to decide on the photos we wanted for the album and every photo he took was just taken with such skill and precision, it was so hard to choose for the album. He captured the best day of our lives perfectly and we will be forever grateful to him. He 110% deserves to win Wedding Photographer of the Year and we cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Bart for all the memories!! Sarah & Matt

Bart was an absolute pleasure to work with. Always so easy to get in contact with, answered all our questions and made us feel so at ease. The engagement shoot helped us be ready for the day and on the day we barely knew Bart was there. He captured all the best moments and people have been commenting on how beautiful the photos are. We would recommend Bart for his great service, professionalism and value.

We had the pleasure of having Bart capture our special day last October - one of the best decisions we made - he is great fun & so professional at the same time - all the kids loved him & still talk about him today - he captured some great photos and lots of out favourites were ones we didn't even know he was taking! he moves about snapping & you honestly don't notice him a lot of the time & he was so accommodating with where we wanted to stop for pictures, even climbing down a riverbank to get a shot of us on a bridge!! We were so delighted when we received delivery of the USB & some pics in a beautiful engraved box with chocolates just a few weeks after the wedding. we also got out wedding Album through him which is beautiful. We can not recommend him highly enough.

He was so helpful and timely with processing all the different parts of the wedding package we selected. We would highly recommend Bart for his creativity, professionalism and for generally making the day less stressful and more fun for us and for everyone! Thanks for the ‘Magical Memories’ Bart

Wow! What can I say? Bart you are simply amazing at what you do, a true natural and professional in every way. From the moment me first met you at the Breaffy House Wedding Expedition we just knew we had to have you. You immediately made us feel at ease with your smile, kind nature and sense of humour. It was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Your professionalism is exceptional. You would always reply to my e mails, facebook messages and calls within minutes. On our wedding day you were incredible. You captured every special moment full of laughter, smiles, tears and joy. You have a creative flair for photographs and each one was so unique. You took some fabulous location shots at Mulranny beach which we will treasure. Thank you again for capturing each and every memorable moment from our Wedding Day of our dreams and thank you for all of your personal touches. We were overwhelmed when our wedding photos arrived in an engraved wooden box, personalised USB, chocolates, lavender and individual photographs. Your attention to detail is fabulous. Thank you for everything, we will be forever grateful and would highly recommend you to any couple getting married.

Bart is amazing!! Those 3 simple words are all that is needed! We got married on the 5th October 2018 and have already received our usb with the most perfect photos!! I literally cannot stop looking at them, reliving the most perfect day! Bart was so easy to deal with from the word Go and even when my date changed he was so accommodating! On the day he was relaxed and easy to be around, he nearly disappeared into the background sometimes!! He stayed for the whole day, from my house to the church to the wedding to the dancing! From my parents to my little flower girl, everyone felt at ease with him, and now I have the most beautiful photos forever! Highly recommend ????

Choosing Bart to handle photography for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. His rapport with the guests was fantastic and the kids loved him. He listened to what we wanted, and got the arty natural shots we were looking for. The photos don't look staged, actually most of them weren't - just natural shots of people having a great time. Great guy & easy to work with.

After a look at Bart’s online gallery (where Bart’s talent for capturing special moments was simply a cut above the rest), my husband and I had the pleasure of experiencing Bart’s expertise and professionalism first hand on not one but two of our wedding days. Bart was simply fantastic! He was extremely professional throughout both days but more importantly he was good humoured, friendly, relaxed, unobtrusive and amazing at what he does. This allowed us, our families and our wedding guests to really relax and enjoy our special days. After our special days, Bart had our photos and photo album back to us in record time and we were absolutely delighted with the results. He is very talented and genuinely loves what he does and this is obvious in his work. If you are thinking of booking Bart for your wedding or event, do it! You will not be disappointed and his ability to capture memories in a unique way will allow you to cherish these memories forever.

We used Bart as our wedding photographer earlier this year & he was amazing!! We really couldn't be happier with him & his service. His photos were so natural we've had several printed & blown up we loved so many!! He has an amazing eye for photography not the usual staged uncomfortable photos but of course he grabbed all the usual timeless family photos too! Anything we asked him was no problem & he went above and beyond what we expected. Of all the people we worked with for our wedding he was by far the most enjoyable and the one we really couldn't talk highly enough of!

Bart was a wonderful photographer for our wedding in Galway. As an American planning an Irish Wedding from London, coordinating the wedding without a planner was definitely a challenge. Dealing with Bart was a pleasure. He was responsive, flexible, and so so positive through the whole lead-up and day-of the wedding. Afterwards, he sent us sample shots & CDs of all shots SO quickly - within weeks of the wedding! Beautiful shots that my family loves. We would definitely use Bart again!

We would like to thank Bart for our truly beautiful engagement and wedding photos. It was such a pleasure to have him as our photographer on both occasions. He has such a great attention to detail. He took endless photos. He was so subtle that we were never conscious that he was there so we could always fully relax. He has a very easy going personality and is always jolly. We would be delighted to recommend him to any couple on their weddin day. Dreams really do come through.

We received our gorgeous wedding album 2 weeks ago from the wonderful Bart, a speedy efficient 10 weeks after our big day! We are absolutely delighted with it and the CD’s of all the 1300+ superb high quality edited and unedited wedding photos, that we received at an unbeatable cost! He captured the whole day, from the venue, the getting ready, to well into the night of celebrations, much more than we expected! We feel really lucky, privileged and blessed to have found Bart online. He’s talented as is clear from his photos, very professional and hard-working, and was a joy and breathe of fresh air to communicate with before, during and after the big day. We felt he really listened to any preferences or wishes we had. We were very relaxed and had mighty craic during the photo shoots as a result! We don’t hesitate to recommend Bart 120%!
