Rafal is the most talented, genuine professional I have ever worked with. His passion for his trade truly comes across in the photos that he takes. Rafal photographed a good friend of ours wedding, as soon as they posted the link to their photos I knew I wanted to book him for our wedding. He was extremely easy to work with and gives great direction when shooting. We have had guests from our wedding already asking for his information to book for their special day. You are getting the highest quality when booking Rafal. I would recommend him greatly to anyone, and I would book him fast as his work is becoming very popular! We can not thank him enough for making our wedding a dream come true!

For my husband and I, choosing our wedding photographer was by far the most important decision because they would capture all the memories of the most important day of our lives. We spent countless hours searching for the perfect photographer and after coming across Rafal’s work it was undeniable that he stood out among everything else we’ve seen. We were getting married in central NJ but I really had my hopes on getting our engagement pictures taken in Philadelphia, where Steve and I had so many great memories. During our initial meeting with Rafal, he was more than willing to accommodate traveling to Philly from NYC to capture our engagement pictures (from my research, many photographers were not). He saw our vision from that initial meeting and made us feel completely at ease.
Being the detail oriented person that I am, I sent Rafal a bunch of places that I wanted to take pictures at in Philly because I knew he hadn’t been there before and maybe needed some suggestions? Boy was I wrong! Rafal arrived to Philly a few days before our shoot and managed to find amazing spots in the city that I didn’t even know about (I’ve lived there for 3 years!). During our engagement shoot he led the way - I was shocked at all the places he took us to that were absolutely stunning and that I would have never thought of! He has such an artistic vision that was unparalleled. In addition to that, he spent hours with us that afternoon perfecting each shot. He did not give up until each picture was perfect. The product was a work of art. Steve and I couldn’t of been happier with our choice and we knew we could completely trust Rafal to capture our big day! During our wedding day Rafal was the best person to have around! He arrived early and got everything ready to go. Once again, he showed his dedication to perfecting each shot and I think his work speaks for itself. The pictures are absolutely breathtaking!
This was a very professional photography company. Amazing photographs, and they made sure to share there work with us promptly. Great people to work with as well.
Two words...'' Thoroughly Professional'' Rafal is the greatest modern wedding photographer I ever seen. He doesn't just capture beautiful images, but he captures the true essence of people. You can truly feel the love and joy pouring out of the photographs taken. They are so real and lively. If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, RM Digital Photography is your best choice!!
RM Photography is one of the best photographers with which I’ve ever had the pleasure of working. As a Wedding Cinematographer, I have many challenges to take a perfect shoot and to work with other photographers. RM Photography can make the most difficult shots seem easy. On top of all this, Rafal Ostrowski is simply one of the finest individuals I’ve ever known and I’m happy to give him my highest recommendation and to work with him.
