Piotr is very professional and easy to shoot with. He has great ideas for poses (and will even demonstrate them for you! haha) and has a good eye for good photography locations. He doesn't rush you and he will come prepared with a warm blanket on a cold day for an outdoor shoot. His specialty, and in my opinion his comfort zone, is shooting in natural light-outdoors.
For a host of reasons, Piotr is one of my favorite photographers to work with. Firstly, he is very talented in his trade his ability to capture and edit shots to perfection sets him amongst Calgary’s finest. Secondly, whenever I have shot with Piotr it has always been a wonderful experience. He is not only friendly, but he is always a blast to work with! He ensures that every step of the photographic process runs smoothly- both for experienced and amateur subjects. For those who need it he is a fantastic coach, he will help you tweak your poses to make sure it is translating the way you want it to on camera. I have worked with Piotr on a large spectrum of styles (commercial, boudoir, creative shoots, and event photography) and his skills truly transcend through them all. Specifically, during my boudoir shoot with him, he was always extremely respectful and understanding- which really helped me to be at ease! I look forward to my continued work with Piotr! - Lauren Alexandria
Piotr was the perfect choice for our photographer for our wedding day. He was able to make our pictures as memorable as the day was. He was patient and helped give us direction when we weren’t sure what to do and was open to any and all suggestions we had. He’s simply, incredible. - Selina & Bruce
We had the pleasure of first working with Piotr of Filipek Photography at our Grand Opening in July 2015. Honestly, we could not have hoped for a better fit: Piotr was the total package. Not only were his technical skills superb, but we also received edited photos later that evening! He was punctual and friendly, both our team and our guests enjoyed his presence at the event. We have since worked with Piotr for photographic coverage of our other events and will continue to do so in the future. -Lamborghini Calgary
Our experience with Piotr was incredible, from start to finish. He was recommended to us by the Wedding Pavillion as one of their top wedding photographers… And they were 100% correct! From our very first meeting, to our engagement session, our wedding, and dealing with our photos after the wedding, everything was perfect. Piotr is one of the most thoughtful, caring, kind individuals we’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, and his personality really shines through in his work. He didn’t just take photos, he captured our story and did it so beautifully. Working with Piotr was effortless, so natural and so comfortable. Piotr has exceeded our expectations in every way. I hope we can find a way to keep him a part of our life, as a photographer and as a friend.
Piotr did our engagement photos and also our wedding. He was such a joy to work with and the whole process, from start to finish, was easy and professional. He was creative and captured so many beautiful moments from our special day. He did an amazing job with both our Chinese tea and traditional ceremony. He lasted from the wee hours of the morning all the way to the last picture in the fun photo booth. Piotr really took the time to get to know us, met with us when it was convenient for us, and he was extremely informative during the ordering process.
We highly recommend Piotr for all your photography needs and we couldn't have been happier with our choice.
Thank you Piotr for capturing our very special day !!! Our wedding album is perfect ! Your artistry and professionalism is beyond what we hoped for.
From our initial meeting with Piotr , we felt that he is the one. We felt his passion for photography and sense of artistry right of the bat! Since then he never got tired of providing us with advises and also guided us with the wedding process.
On our wedding day, Piotr’s uninterrupted –journalistic style of shots was very evident , all our precious moments was captured perfectly. We love, love, love our photos! .We are so proud to share it to our family and friends.
Piotr provided us an excellent service that we will never forget!
We had chosen Piotr Filipek to do all of our photos from our Engagement to our Wedding and many of the events in-between. Piotr created a laid back atmosphere with humor to keep us smiling throughout our sessions. His creative style is not like typical photographers of posing and being statues but rather a hangout, it was just fun!
He went above and beyond just to find the perfect photo booth props for our wedding and there was a line up for it the whole night! His product choice and quality was impeccable, we are so proud to show off our beautiful photo album to anyone who comes to our home.
We will definitely keep coming back to Piotr for more photos in the future.
My downtown photography session with Piotr was absolutely wonderful and exceeded my expectations in every way. I normally feel nervous and awkward in front of the camera and Piotr not only made me feel comfortable, but he also made the whole afternoon really fun, which clearly shows in all the photos. I was completely blown away by the final proofs and would recommend Filipek Photography to absolutely anyone and everyone looking to have professional photos done for their website or business.
Piotr did an amazing job for our wedding and we couldn’t be happier. From the very beginning, Piotr was dedicated to capturing our special day exactly how we wanted it. Piotr met with us several times before our wedding day to scout out photography locations and was very giving of his time. On our wedding day, Piotr was fantastic; organizing family and the wedding party for pictures, traveling to more than one location for photo opportunities, and going with the flow and supporting the dream we had for our wedding. We love the photographs that Piotr took on our special day and would definitely use Piotr’s photography skills in the future.
Piotr was an exceptional photographer for our wedding! We were especially impressed with his creative abilities when setting up our shots at Bowness Park. He used the paths, trees, water, the light, and even our bridesmaid's sunglasses in really creative ways and to their best effect. The results are stunning! We also loved his idea to set up a photo booth at our reception hall. The booth was incredibly popular and the shots of it are some of the most fun and spontaneous of the whole wonderful experience. We would highly recommend Piotr for your wedding! You won't be disappointed.
Piotr was great from start to finish! We were able to meet with him in convenient places and at times to fit our schedule. We were so happy with our engagement pictures that we just couldn't wait for him to join us on our wedding day and take even more amazing pictures! We really appreciated that Piotr went to our venue before the wedding to scout out the area and find some beautiful places to take pictures. Both our albums from engagement and wedding turned out beautifully and we will always cherish the pictures and memories. Thanks Piotr!
We have used Filipek Photography twice now: once for my husband's family pictures, and once for our family picture after the adoption of our son. Piotr was very flexible with us both in our decision of where we wanted to have our pictures done, and in trying to capture the poses we were interested in. That, combined with Piotr's own knowledge and style, gave us the result we were hoping for. Thanks Filipek Photography!
We are so happy with the photos that Piotr took of us! The colours are so vibrant - they really popped!... We definitely want him to take our pictures again in the future.
Piotr has been taking pictures of our family for a lot of years and has captured many important memories for us. No matter what the event, Piotr always captures the moment.
