We received our wedding album from Syona photography this week and we are blown away by what Paulina and Rafal have given us to have and to cherish forever. Paulina and Rafal are talented, gifted artists. They captured our day so beautifully and the photos reflect the absolute joy and magic we experienced on our day. As well as this, their attention to detail and eye for colours and light, ensure that the nature in which we were surrounded, is very much a part of our album. Their meticulous eye is like no other, and the colours and light that are evident in the photographs are part of what separates this duo from others in their profession.
On top of this, they are a joy to have with you on the day. Paulina and Rafal were so happy for us that they added to our excitement yet remained invisible in the best sense of the word. I have no recollection of some of the photos they captured being taken, so there were so many incredible surprises as we went through our album. It is significant to note they are a duo, because we now have photos of both the bride and groom getting ready, and it is great fun to be able to see and remember what each of us was doing at the same time, in different spaces, in the buildup to the ceremony. It also means we have photos from many different angles but most importantly we have the individual work of two extremely talented people.

Thank you so much Syona, we are truly bursting with gratitude for you both.

All our love,

Ali and Myles.

We were so lucky to have the fabulous Paulina and Rafal from Syona photography photograph our wedding day. These two are seriously talented photographers and also two of the nicest people you will meet. They made us feel so comfortable on the day and we have the most beautiful photos to look back on. They captured such lovely interactions between our families and guests which we are so happy to have for memories.

I cannot recommend Syona Photography enough! Both Paulina and Rafal were amazing to deal with from our initial consultation to when we received our beautiful photographs. They have such a relaxed style and work away without you even knowing they are there. Five stars doesn?t do them justice!

We are over the moon with our wedding photos. Paulina and Rafal skyped us before the wedding to get to know us which was lovely. Then on the day it was fab having 2 photographers as they could capture everything we wanted. Paulina and Rafal were encouraging and excited on the day, you can tell they love what they do. After the wedding they sent us sneak peaks of photos which was great as we were dying to see the photos. A few weeks later, we got 700+ beautiful photos that captured each part of the day so well. Now, we've just received our printed wedding photos and USB. They were so beautifully wrapped and presented. I can't say it enough, we love our photos. Can't wait to hang them on our walls. Thank you guys for capturing all those memories for us.

These two are amazing! What a pleasure to work with the two of them ... completely calmed us through the whole process and you didn?t even notice that around in the morning they were so quiet and professional. As the day went on we had great laughs and chats with them and they are both just so nice and genuine. They captured everything so naturally as the day progressed. Can?t wait to see all the photos, I know they will be nothing short than amazing.

We had Paulina and Rafal as our photographers on the 16th March 2019. I cannot express how happy we were with our photos. We wanted to go for a very natural approach and to capture the day as it happens and they did just that. Weatherwise we weren't to lucky in the morning but it picked up and we go amazing pictures at our venue Kilkea Castle. They both blending in, people came up to us both afterwards and commended how professional they were. I couldn't fault them, they are also just lovely people too, that were excited to be there with us. Lisa & Anthony Garland

Paulina and Rafal photographed our wedding in December 2018. We couldn't recommened Syona more! They captured the day from start to finish. When we received our wedding photos, they brought back so many happy memories. We were blown away by all the photos! Paulina and Rafal are both so lovely and on the day itself they put us totally at ease. They worked so hard throughout the day and captured all the special moments. We are so grateful to them both for everything.

We had Paulina and Rafal as our wedding photographers in June 2018. We had put alot of research into which photographer we would like and found Syona photographer during our search. All I can say is WOW we were definitely not disappointed. Paulina and Rafal put us totally at ease from the moment of booking them with great tips on how to pose and relax the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding itself they were amazing, taking hundreds of photos without us even realising they were there. They captured such special moments of us getting ready and of guests throughout the day. Plus you also get two photographers, so on the morning we both had our own dedicated photographer and got an insight into what each of us were doing on the morning of the wedding. We were in no way used to posing for photos and they put us totally at ease during our couples session on the day, Capturing amazing moments and photos. We are so delighted with the photos we received we can't believe how well they turned out and are eternally grateful to Paulina and Rafal. P.S. Since receiveing our photos and seeing Paulina and Rafal work on the wedding day three of our friends have booked them for their own weddings.

We were so happy to have Paulina and Rafal as part of our wedding. Leading up to the day they were very helpful and supportive - way above and beyond their roles as photographers. On the day itself their presence was reassuring and calming, and they were super great with all the guests. We were so relaxed with them and felt completely at ease to be our silly selves. They gave us the wedding photos unexpectedly quickly, and not only were they completely stunning, but also honestly captured how much fun the entire day was, and how happy we all were. Paulina and Rafal worked tirelessly to thoroughly capture all the fun and happiness on the day. We are so grateful and could not have asked for more!

Paulina & Rafal of Syona Photography captured our wedding day in December 2016. I had put a lot of research into wedding photographers and had a very particular style that I wanted, I don't like overly staged photos, and after lots and lots of research I came across Syona and absolutely loved their style. And I can say that they didn't disappoint, our wedding photos came out even more beautiful then I could have imagined.

As part of our package we got an engagement shoot included which was a great idea, we got to meet with both photographers and get a sense of how they would work on the day, plus we got some lovely photos of just the two of us. :-)

On the day itself as they are a husband and wife duo, you get two photographers for the price of one, Paulina was with me while I prepared for the wedding and Rafal was with my husband, it meant that none of our day was missed. Also during the ceremony which we had on the side of a lake, because there were two photographers we have so many beautiful photos taken from all different angles, there really wasn't a minute missed. They were such a lovely couple to have around on the day of the wedding, very calm and quiet and would just snap away in the background without you even noticing they were there, this resulted in so many beautifully captured moments.

When we got our photographs, they came in the most beautifully presented package and wooden box, which is still on display in my dining room. :-) It was like getting another wedding present after the wedding! Our photographs came out even more beautiful then I could have ever imagined. So if your looking for a wedding photographer I absolutely couldn't recommend Syona Photography more highly.

An absolute dream to work with from beginning to end. Professional but so easy to work with and accommodating to our needs. At one stage, my baby was crying before the wedding and Paulina picked her up to console her. Everyone admired their easy approach to the day. Results of the day were fantastic and they made me feel like a princess and this is coming from someone who is generally quite camera shy and uncomfortable around the camera. Lovely couple who seem to compliment each other's work. You can also feel the love flowing between them and as a result, love was all around us on our special day.

Paulina and Rafal were lovely to have there on the day. I was worried about having two photographers but they are both very discreet and extremely professional. They both have different styles and notice different things so they really work well together. They came early in the morning and stayed very late. They are certainly hard working and dedicated! A pleasure to share my big day with!

Paulina and Rafa? were with us for the preparations for the wedding, during the ceremony and at our wedding party in September 2013. They are an amazing couple, who complement each other wonderfully! They carried on their duties with great care, in subtle manner and good sense of humour, which made us feel very comfortable and their presence was really a bonus for us on such important day. Photos delighted us, our families and friends! Magical! We can recommend Syona Photography with all our hearts!

Paulina and Rafal were an absolute pleasure to deal with right from the start when I initially enquired about their services and to the very end in terms of selecting our wedding album. They are incredibly professional without being too stuffy or formal and their relaxed and confident approach made us feel very relaxed. They made the very most of the scenic areas at our reception to capture the best shots and they made a special effort to capture some really touching images of my close family in a natural and relaxed way. Our friends remarked about how subtle and non-intrusive they were and how well they worked together as a team.
