Testimonials - Dawid

Your kind words!



I can't say enough great things about Dawid. Very polite and professional. Never late, always early and well prepared. Incredible photos and very accommodating. Really goes out of his way to make sure you get the perfect photos and capture your vision. We used Dawid for the engagement photos and our wedding day. The pictures were magazine quality. It was unbelievable! He is SO nice and very reasonably priced. I would recommend him to anyone! He goes above and beyond while helping you stay in budget. Top quality and professionalism all the way around.

Dawid's work was nothing but exceptional! We booked him for our pre-wedding photoshoot after a friends recommendation, and we are so glad we did. Leading up to the day of the photoshoot, the communication was great, and everything was well planned and organized. On the day of, he utilized every minute of our 2 hour session and continued to take photos even after our session was over. You can really tell he loves what he does and it shows once you receive your photos! The pictures couldn't have been better! I highly recommended him!

If Yelp had a thousand stars, that's what we would give Dawid. Dawid truly blew our minds this year with his exceptional work. We found him on Yelp early in the year while looking for photographers for our October wedding in Livermore. We were very drawn to his photographs because they exuded talent and had so much visual interest so we were over the moon when he not only agreed to work with our budget but even offered to throw in engagement photos. The engagement photo session was supposed to be one hour in SF but Dawid worked relentlessly with us for two hours, walking to multiple locations, and exploring different environments to create a stunning palette of photographs that we ended up falling so in love with and enlarging on canvas for the wedding! On the wedding day, Dawid was incredibly patient and professional despite our (well, the bride's) hiccups with running behind schedule. He had visited the venue before the wedding and done his research on the best locations for photos based on light around the time of the first look, ceremony, and reception. The photos turned out SO incredibly gorgeous. Our wedding looked absolutely magical through his lens. I've been highly recommending Dawid to everyone since our engagement photo session because of his high level of talent and professionalism. He's such a pleasure to work with and we can't wait for the next opportunity to hire him. Thank you again Dawid for capturing our memories so beautifully!

Dawid was amazing to work with throughout our wedding process. From planning, to walkthroughs, the day of, and post production. He prides himself in providing beautiful and artistic pictures. His expertise with lighting shines in his ability to capture amazing photos in the most difficult lighting situations (a dark planetarium and indoor science museum). He helped work with us in making sure that we had our surprises for each other for a hilarious first look and focused on capturing great candids as requested. Also, as a brown filipina marrying into a white family... our colors were balanced!!! Cos let's be real...it's a thing! Thank you, Dawid!!

Dawid went above and beyond to capture our special day. For both our engagement session and wedding day, he arrived early and stayed late to make sure we got everything we wanted and everything he recommended. He has a great eye and super easy and fun to work with. He's also extremely responsive. We are so happy with our photos and can't recommend Dawid enough! He is awesome!

Dawid did our engagement session and he was fabulous! He was extremely professional and made us feel so comfortable. We were very nervous to receive the pictures as it was such a windy day but we loved all of them! He captured our relationship completely in the photos! He is also very quick at getting the images back to you. I highly suggest Dawid to anyone that is looking for a photographer in the Bay Area!

After comparing about 10+ photographers, we decided to go with Dawid after looking at his gallery on his website and we couldn't be happier with his work. Also, it was a huge plus that he has experience in photographing Hindu weddings. We sort of planned the day of the wedding around the photo sessions and we have no regrets. Throughout the day, Dawid was very efficient with his time and researched the venue & lighting ahead of time so he knew where he had to be at any moment. He also had some backup locations we could use in case the lighting/weather didn't work out. Not only is he VERY good at what he does, he is just a GOOD dude. After meeting him for the first time, we both felt very comfortable around him. Leading up to the wedding. he was accommodating, responsive and very patient. If you're looking for a wedding photographer, save yourself some time and go with Dawid. You won't regret it!

Dawid is a simply outstanding photographer and we highly recommend him! He and his assistant did whatever it took to get the best shot with the best lighting (including jumping a fence to get the perfect shot; now that's dedication!). His pricing is fair and his pictures are amazing! He is a really nice person to work with, which makes a huge difference because in all honesty you spend more time with your photographer on the day of your wedding than all of your family and friends! We highly recommend hiring him.

Hands down, Dawid is the best! My wife and I had the privilege of working with Dawid for our wedding and engagement photos and we couldn't be more happy with the results. He has a great eye and makes taking pictures very easy. The biggest problem we had was selecting which pictures we were going to put on our save the date card or get made big to hang in the house because there were so many great shots! Every location was amazing and every idea helped us feel more and more comfortable. If you hire Dawid you will be extremely happy and if you don't then you've made your first mistake of planning your big day! He turned around the photos very quickly and we love them all. Thank you Dawid- Carlos and Tatiana

This review is long overdue! Like many other reviewers, my husband and I hired Dawid initially for our engagement shoot. We were so pleased with our incredible engagement pictures and how easy and fun Dawid was to work with, we immediately hired him for our wedding as well. After planning our wedding, I can say with confidence that the most important part of planning is hiring a great photographer. And we can't imagine having had a better experience than with Dawid. He took so many incredible and creative pictures and really captured every moment and emotion. Our pictures are simply breath taking; I've never seen such beautiful wedding pictures. If you are still looking for a photographer to hire - for any event - you should immediately book Dawid if he is available.

We hired Dawid for our wedding in January and the experience was great. He is very warm and friendly. The venue recommended some photographers and they all seemed to have personalities that were not a fit for us. We are so happy we looked elsewhere and saw Dawid's great reviews. Keep in mind that the photographer is around you on your wedding day...all day! Personality mattered for us, and Dawid is great! The other great thing was that before booking, he was willing to drive (kind of far) to meet us for an interview. He went above and beyond at every step in the process. All of his photos were amazing and we couldn't have asked for anything more in a photographer. He was willing to go the extra mile and he made our day even more special. He stayed long hours and has a creative eye. He was also very timely post-wedding with getting our pictures up and sending us the cutest thumb drive that had the wedding date on it! Thank you for everything Dawid!! :)

Dawid Bilski is by far the best photographer I've met, and I went through a lot. He captures every moment. The best aspect about him is that this profession is his passion. I love modeling for his shots and he loves taking them and captures them perfectly. He did our graduation pics, our engagement as well as our wedding. He's now our family photographer. He's A-M-A-Z-I-N-G =)
