“We were very fortunate to be able to secure Jan as photographer for our daughter’s wedding. He was with us throughout the day from the hair and make up to the evening reception. He merged into the wedding party seamlessly, as though he were part of the family (often not realising he was still in the room) and therefore caught some beautiful memorable moments on camera. It was such a wonderful experience with no awkward posing or shyness in front of the camera. He produced a lovely mixture of formal and informal photos and a number of ‘caught in the act’ photographs such as fluffing up the wedding dress, which was absolutely stunning. A true professional, who has a natural eye for catching beautiful moments”. Heather & Paul Gear Mother & Father of the Bride Quex Park December 2017

Dear Jan,
I don’t think we will ever be able to thank you enough for the beautiful photos that you took of our day. You captured the magic, love and laughter perfectly. We couldn’t have wished for a more wonderful day and it was all the better for having you there. Wishing you lots of love, we will treasure the photos forever,

Hi Jan,

Myself and Jo would like to say a HUGE thank you for your amazing photos you took at our wedding! They are perfect. We would also like to say how friendly and professional you were. All of our family members said how nice you were and how your involvement and ideas made the day even better! Would not hesitate to recommend you.

Thanks again Will and Jo

Good morning! I just want to say a huge thank you for everything you did for us on Saturday all the way through such a magical day. You were just brilliant at keeping me calm throughout the morning and to dealing with all the family demands for all the photos they wanted. I hope you are happy with the story you have captured and we can’t wait to see your photos. I love the cricket one by the golf course. We look so happy… I’m so pleased you were such an important part of our special day and I’ll treasure the memories you helped us create forever.
Lots of love xx Vicki & Luke Marler-Hausen

Dear Jan,

Just wanted to let you know that almost everyone in the Junior School has heard what great pictures were taken at Katie’s wedding and how pleased she was with you as a photographer.

I know positive feed back doesn’t always get back, so… well done!

Hope you had a good Christmas,

Best wishes,


Dear Jan,
Once again you have produced a wonderful result. Firstly with Sally and Andrew’s wedding and now with the “scrap book album”. Thank you!
It is great to have found someone who does everything so promptly and manage to treat you as if you were the only customer that mattered!
Many thanks and best wishes.

Jan, you are a credit to your profession, fantastic images captured on that special Graspan day, a huge thank you from all of us.

Ray Andrews

Jan, They are fantastic photos mate!! Great job!
Many, Many Thanks, Mark Upton

Mark was endorsed by Eclipse Trumpets the UK’s leading custom trumpet maker in 2012, photos were taken at the Royal Albert Hall London with Mark in performance for a major show in 2015…

Jan, Thanks so much for being at the dinner last night. We were all very happy with the way it went, and to have you recording it all in your usual unobtrusive way was ideal. All the best, great to see you again, and thanks – Mark

Hi Jan, just thought I’d send a quick message to say thanks for the photos from DCG Dining out. They were fantastic.Thanks, Dave (H)

Hi Jan, Really fabulous pics, thank you very much, what a great reminder of the evening. Thank you so much… Antonia (Will’s wife)

The photographs that Jan & Heather produced were of the highest quality and our wedding album beautifully created and designed.
Due to the many amazing photographs that we had we found it very difficult to select the ones we wanted with our wedding album; however we got there in the end. The responses we have received from our friends and family have been very positive. We felt that what we paid, was very good value for the quality that we received and we would not hesitate to recommend Jan & Heather to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer! Mark and Eloise

Thank you for your time & effort in capturing our special day. We found your visit to our home to discuss and advise us on our big day most helpful & informative from the types of photos we wanted, down to the choice of albums available. We also appreciate you taking the time to carry out a visit to our venue to suggest the best places for photographs. On the day we hardly knew you were there as we had asked you to capture us & our family & friends in a natural pose which you carried out with professionalism. After our wedding you invited us both to your studio to view our pictures on a large screen & welcomed us with a glass of bubbly. Finally we would like to thank you both for the memories you have captured of our special day and would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a photographer who is passionate & caring to make sure their day was as special as ours.

Thanks again, Richard & Sheila

You both did an amazing job at our wedding. We really could not have asked for anything more than what you both did for us. All the pictures were amazing and Jan you were amazingly professional in the way that you conducted the picture taking. Thanks again for everything and good luck with everything!

Best wishes, Dannii & Daniel

Hello Jan!
Thank you for all the time and effort you’ve spent taking and producing our photos, and so quickly too! It was a fun morning for all of us, the boys enjoyed it and Bertie wants to go on the pink ferry with you again! What you’ve captured is fantastic. I love the detail and definition of the shots, and they will definitely be going into calendars for Christmas presents. I’ll get in touch soon about some proper prints for walls etc. Chat soon

Rebecca, Ian and boys xxx

Thank you for delivering our wedding album – have to say it weighs a ton!! We have looked through it several times and are delighted with the album. I took it to work last week and a few of the girls wanted to see the pictures and everyone commented on how unusual it was and they thought it was lovely. Also thank you for sorting the smaller books out for Mum and Dad, also for the calendar and the tiny books which were a real surprise. There are still lots of people to get round to see the album, but I’m sure the reaction will be the same. So thank you once again. Dawn & Adrian

Jan recent took a number of professional profile pictures for 2 new franchisees of mine. The results were excellent however what I really liked was Jan’s huge passion and commitment to getting the best results. The photos were also available the next day An excellent service from a great professional, thank you Jan August 7, 2013

“In my line of work I have met with hundreds of photographers over the last 10+ years. There are very very few who are not only at the top of their game but are delightful people to work with.  Jan is one of the very few in my eyes.

Working with Jan is always a pleasure and one of the reasons why he figured prominently when I needed top quality photographers at the recent London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics”.
Jan is a true gentleman,  a true professional and an outstanding photographer” Stuart Morley Managing Director

Myself & Karen would like to thank you very much for all your time and effort spent on taking our staff photographs earlier this month. We are both very pleased not only with the way in which you guided us through taking the photos on the day, but also with the finished product. The photographs capture the right combination of approachability and professionalism that we were looking for. It is clear why you are a ‘Master’ Photographer and I/We would not hesitate to recommend you to others whether for corporate or personal photography, Kind Regards, Catherine Sousa & Karen Richards. Sousa Richards Solicitors

The pictures are FANTASTIC – a very big thank you. Have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to working with you in the new year, Jane [ Marketing Manager @ The Royal Marines Museum ]

Jan, Many thanks for the photos you took on the night of the dinner.  I have only just had the chance to go through them now and they are brilliant.  We are so pleased.  Thanks to both you and Ian for doing this.  Hope all is well.  Look forward to catching up again soon. Yours,  Paul  –  Deputy Commandant General Royal Marines.

We’d like to thank you for a wonderful set of photographs of little Robert, it was very kind of you to spend that time with us and producing the album. We have some very impressive photos for friends & relatives, a lovely thing to do for us, Love Graham, Fi and little Robert

Hi Jan, Everything has arrived safely and it is all wonderful. I can’t thank you enough for such a brilliant job you did. I am telling everyone and anyone who will listen to me and not get fed up with my going on about how good you were. If you ever want to give someone my email for direct confirmation of your work, please feel free to give it to them.  Many, many thanks again. When and if James were to ever take the plunge I shall be pushing the brides mother hard to use you!! Very best wishes, Liz

This letter is to thank you so very much, for the enormous help I know you have been in a number of ways, to the obvious success of the Frankton Project.  Especially with all the work involved in compiling the album as well as undertaking the design production and payment of costs in London & Portsmouth, which were much appreciated… With your long service in the Royal Marines, I know the interest you would have had in furthering the memory of that fantastically brave Frankton Operation sixty years ago, but you have been a real help in seeing that it is suitably memoralised.   With very many thanks & my best wishes…   Patricia, Countess Mountbatten of Burma

I  just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for Richard’s excellent photo album.  We gave it to him on Sunday and he absolutely loved it, as did all the other guests at his birthday lunch.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the time and care you took over its production. With very best regards, Lorraine – November 2011

We were exceptionally pleased with the service we received from Jan Zawada | Photography. Jan was professional, hard-working, reliable and produced amazing photos, a pleasure to work with and fun to have around on the day. The service we received after the event was also excellent and we are delighted with our finished images. We would not think twice before using Jan again and would recommend him without hesitation.

I would like to recommend Jan as someone I have come to know through BNI and someone that I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone I know. His tag line is great, “Shooting Your Family So You Don’t Have To’ !! Jan is professional in every way and I know has many recommendations from clients to his credit. September 15, 2011
Scott Curtis, Partner – Curtis Plumstone Associates

I cannot recommend Jan highly enough to any company who requires high quality images for either hard copy or for high spec website images. He manages to capture ‘people’ in a way that I have never seen before. Gone are the days of boring corporate images – Jan will give you a modern relevant branding for your business. He always delivers and is never late and gives 100% – a rare quality!! September 14, 2011, Catherine Sousa – Catherine Sousa Solicitors

I needed a professional photo for my new book and website and I really don’t like having my photo taken – no, I really don’t like it!
However – Jan made the whole process fun. He was able to remove the stress from the situation and help me relax. I can recommend Jan as an excellent photographer who works well with clients and provides very good value for money.
