I cannot recommend Alex enough and even by just looking at his work you can see how talented he is. He has a good eye for capturing special moments without forcing them. Sometimes he even felt like a ghost.... we didn't even realize he was there taking photos at times until we saw the highlights. We had him for the full day and we can honestly say he worked so hard. Even through his quick dinner he was editing a highlights slideshow of our day to show us after our dessert. Even though it was windy, Alex braced his drone to get a much wanted image of our wedding guests in a heart form and although it rained he motivated us to get some gorgeous photos outside and after our first dance he took us outside to take some night time shots. Nothing was too much for Alex and a true gentleman at that. Alex it was great working with you to the lead up of our day and I am so excited to see the rest of the photos.

Alex was a pleasure to deal with, always polite and friendly, and so accommodating with our changes due to Covid. He got amazing photos from start to finish that captured all the laughter we had throughout the day and everyone commented on how well the photos turned out! We were even surprised to see some photos as we didn’t even notice him there at some points of the day. Would definitely recommend Alex, I don’t tend to photograph well but he somehow managed to get lovely photos!! We were also really surprised at how quicky we received the photos! Thanks so much Alex for all of your fantastic work – we love the photos!!

From the first day I contacted Alex he was incredibly flexible and accommodating. His responsiveness to questions was second to none and he was happy to connect via email, phone whenever necessary. On the day, Alex made us feel relaxed and brought a great energy and personality. It was a pleasure to have him there and he was really unobtrusive. The end result? Wonderful photos which captured all of the special moments and emotions of the day! Delivery was super quick also and presented beautifully. Thank you Alex!!

I was nervous prior to meeting Alex about getting so many pictures taken of me and being in the spotlight however he made me feel completely at ease. We contacted him very last minute and were delighted that he was available, we had seen his work and read reviews here so I was confident we had a great photographer, little did we know how great until we seen his work. Amazing is an understatement such beautiful shots, he covered all aspects the family photos but the other images he managed to capture were so unique and beautiful. We were delighted with all he was able to capture and the variety he has given us is unreal. I would recommend him 100% as a photographer for any couple looking for a photographer, you would not be disappointed.

Alex was absolutely brilliant! We chose him for our wedding September 2020 in Belfast. We had a great fun with him, time flew and there was nothing but the pleasure to have him as our photographer. I highly recommend Alex for his professionalism, attention to detail and great effort catching the precious moments. Best of luck!

Alex was a dream to work with. He was so flexible and accommodating after a few changes due to Covid. He was so professional but yet added fun to the day. He went above and beyond to get the most amazing shots. We were so happy with the album and overall service. Thanks again Alex!!

Alex was amazing from the moment we booked him to the delivery of our photographs. Couldn’t be happier with the communication & assurance he provided throughout the planning. There were a few months of uncertainty due to covid & Alex couldn’t have been more accommodating regarding booking new dates etc. The beautiful photographs were delivered very soon after our wedding and they did not disappoint. Thanks again, Claire & Trevor

Alex was nothing short of brilliant. We booked him prior to the pandemic, and he was so flexible, understanding and worked with us every step of the way. On the day, he was so professional and nice, every one of our guests commented on how lucky we were to get him because he was so kind! We are so happy with the photos, they all turned out amazing and many of our friends have commented to say they look like they are straight out of a magazine. We would recommend Alex to anyone and everyone!

Alex was our photographer for our April wedding and he did a fantastic job. From our first meeting, we were thrilled we choose him. He is professional, caring, so attentive, funny and had everyone at ease all day. The pictures themselves were of the highest quality and we are so proud of them. We would not hesitate to recommend Alex.

Alex was our photographer for our December wedding. From the very beginning he was enthusiastic, full of ideas, easy to talk to, a great listener and such a lovely person to deal with. On the day he took so many beautiful shots, we even had an evening photo shoot for more magical photos. Alex went above and beyond, even staying well past the first dance. The day after our wedding we were able to view a selection of photos, we loved being able to see them so soon. I would highly recommend Alex.

Alex was a dream to work with. He helped us achieve exactly what we wanted on the day. He was very flexible, things ended up running late and he had no problem staying a few extra hours! We also got our photos back less than 3 weeks after the wedding. He was very relaxed and made sure we felt comfortable and I think it really shows in the pictures. They are absolutely stunning and all look very candid. I would 100% recommend him. The price was also very reasonable

Alex is an absolutely fabulous person and an even better photographer. Although Alex travelled a long journey from Galway to Cavan to be our wedding photographer he took the time to visit both the church and reception grounds which afforded him the opportunity to be prepared and to ensure that he took the perfect shots. Alex also travelled to both the bride and grooms residence to take photographs of both the bride and groom and our families getting ready. Alex never rushed us and he stayed with us as long as we required his services on our wedding day which was far more flexible than any other wedding photographer who wanted to charge an additional fee per hour after the dinner bell. Alex took beautiful natural photographs and provided us with a very high quality wedding album. Alex is a true gentleman who is very passionate about his work. We would recommend him for photography services for any special event.

Alex thank you for your professional, courteous and amazing service you provided on our Wedding day. From the outset Alex was a total perfectionist, yet it seemed as if he was in the background all the time, as such we were so at ease throughout the day and evening of our Wedding. Alex was an absolute gentleman to deal with, from our initial booking, right through to receiving the final images. We were so amazed with the different shots Alex captured on the day, the type of shots 'Standard' photographers just don't catch. The quality of the shots he captures is also reflected in the high quality equipment he uses. We would without hesitation direct potential clients to Alex's website which paints a thousand words and truly displays the exceptional talent, time and service Alex gives to each client. In summary we would highly recommend Alex for any professional photographic service you require.

Alex was an absolute gentleman and a pleasure to be around for the day. He was always there to capture great moments that we would never have thought of. He was very easy going and considerate of our needs and wants for the day which helped the day go by smoothly. The fantastic prints and album we received were beyond our expectations. Cannot recommend this lovely man highly enough.

We are so happy we chose Alex as our photographer on our wedding day from the first email we knew Alex was the guy for us. It is so important to make the right decision when choosing a photographer and you really realise this when you get the pictures back. His quality and selection was amazing he even sent a sample few through the following day which was great to have them so quick as the day goes by so fast. Alex is a true talent with the camera, so professional yet easy going would highly recommend...!

Words cannot explain how amazing your work is Alex, you are such a talented, patient, fun photographer to work with. Your photographs took my breath away. From start to finish you made us feel so at ease. Your photos are second to none. We did not have a videographer but with the photos you took, a video will never be missed. We can relive our whole day through the work you did. You went above and beyond to make our photos stunning and for that I could never thank you enough. I will highly recommend you to anyone in need of a photographer for any event.

Trying to plan a wedding in Ireland but living in England wasn’t easy but everything about booking Alex Zarodov as our photographer was! Alex showed up on time and after the first few awkward minutes of trying to act natural while someone was taking your picture, it was almost as though he was invisible! He has a great eye for beautiful shots and gives guidance if needed. He took a wonderful range of photos, including some that we had thought of but never asked for, and has a flair for making shots look extra special. He’s flexible, friendly and an amazing photographer. Thank you so much Alex for your fantastic photos that commemorate our day! Laura & Mark

Alex was extremely polite and professional. He responded quickly to all emails and was flexible with last minute changes and hiccups on the wedding day. The entire day he was joking with guests and making everyone laugh. The photos look amazing and I am so glad we found him!

I would highly recommend Alex! I normally hate the idea of getting my photo taken so I only hired Alex for 4 hours but seeing the few photos that he sent me the day after the wedding I really wish I had booked him from early morning, absolutely amazing work! He captured everything I had asked him through emails before the wedding to try & do, esp the kids, guests arriving & of the venue, gorgeous B&W photos as well which are my personal favourite! Alex is a very talented photographer & has the added bonus of being such a gentleman!

Alex is a very professional who is very reasonably priced. Was amazing to work with and you would hardly know he was there. He got the most amazing photographs worth the best quality and anyone would be very happy with them:). and he had the best backup plans for if the weather was not in your favour. Very friendly and understanding.

Thank you from Zoe and Garreth.
