Radka Horvath

 

My name is Radka Horvath and I am a Wedding and Portrait photographer. I work with my partner James to capture images that tell a story and spark your emotions. Our approach is unobtrusive and relaxed, and our photographs are fresh, luminous and true.
We are based in Gibraltar and Andalucía, Spain, but are willing to travel to any exotic location for that great shot! If you are interested in booking us for your wedding, or just want to chat about your plans, please do not hesitate to contact me.




 

Radka Horvath Photography – Wedding Photographer in Gibraltar & Spain

 

 

Kind Words

Tess & Alan, Gibraltar & Spain, November 2017

“Where to start. For an elopement, I was ridiculously prepared, contacting Radka over a year in advance. I found her online and thought her photos just looked that little bit different, just what I wanted. She was great at getting back to me quickly, answering any of my silly little questions, and making suggestions as I hadn’t finished planning everything yet. We kept in touch over the year as the day got closer and closer, so I was satisfied everything was going to be perfect. On the day she arrived early, so was able to get some early snaps of the other half while I was finishing makeup, and then of me getting into my dress. We did the first look pictures, and went off to the registry. We had previously organised for Radka’s partner James to be our other witness, and luckily enough he was also able to be our chauffeur. I had said I wanted photos in the gardens, and at the beach, and other than that open to anything, but they went above and beyond to fulfil that request. While in the gardens Radka got us into the private plant nursery part of the gardens, so I could obsess over all the baby cacti and succulents, and luckily for the rest of the time there we had no other members of the public so we could take a thousand and one photos. Radka was really good at directing us as neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera. We were able to just move around naturally, but also would get a “oo move like that, I love it!” to get those extra shots. James was a brilliantly entertaining driver, with great banter and great tunes, and he and Radka talked as we went about the best places to go. We went basically all over Gib to get the best spots, but as there was a giant cloud over the Rock it was decided that going into Spain for some local sun on the beaches would be the best idea. Once we had done all that it was time to go home and relax. The next day Radka sent a sneak peek of some of the photos, which was so amazing as it was super quick and gave me something to tide me over until the photos arrived just over a week later (online) and just under three weeks later for the (adorable) wooden USB stick and three cute little printed photos to arrive, plus highly skilled cartoon artwork on the envelope! This day was the best ever, and everyone has been commenting on how amazing the photos are (not just because we look bomb af in them), the style is perfect. It was really important that we had a good record to show to friends and family as we didn’t tell or invite anyone to be a part of the day, and Radka has delivered this. Who you are as a person will play a part in how your wedding day and photos turn out, and for us as a couple Radka and James were the perfect fit.
Thank you so much, again, I can’t wait to have children to show them how amazing we looked and how you can have your day however you want it, no one else needs to know and it will still be the best.”

“Hi Radka,
We are absolutely overjoyed with the photos. They are incredible, and really capture the emotion and essence of the day. You are both truly artists. We are both so happy to have such stunning photos to look back on for years to come. Thank you so much! The only problem we have is choosing which ones to print as there are just so many good ones!
A lovely problem to have indeed. :)
Lots of love
Sarah and Jan x”

“Hey Radka and James,
Wow this is literally the most perfect timing! We are just at the airport about to fly to London for the weekend to spend it with Nicks daughter Emily. So we will be able to show her all the photos!
We had the most fun day with you both and you captured every smile laugh and happy tears! We both tend to shy away from any photo but you made us feel so comfortable and we enjoyed the giggles.
So many great memories that we wouldn’t have remembered if you hadn’t have captured them!
Thank you again so so so much!
The two Jonesys & little Jonesy Xx”

Hi Radka,
WOW! I can’t tell you how excited we were when your email popped into my inbox today! We are completely blown away with how stunning the images are. You and James have captured so many precious moments. You have such a talent for taking such beautiful, natural photos and it’s incredible the way you manage to get shots of so many individuals; not a single moment or person goes unnoticed. We absolutely adore the photos and really cannot thank you enough.
Love and best wishes,
Zoe and Tariq xx”

Natalie & Dan, Marbella, Spain, July 2017

“Radka & James,
Where do I start….I’m honestly speechless. I haven’t stopped smiling since I opened your email this morning, we are literally so happy. Thank you so much for capturing the day so beautifully, bringing back memories and moments that we had completely forgotten about. We can’t thank you guys enough, you were so wonderful on the day and I can’t even begin to explain how easy you made it for us both (especially with my fear of photographs!). Dan is away at the minute so I’ve promised him we’ll sit down properly at the weekend and look through them together, but I obviously had to take a quick look through and send him a couple!
Again thank you so much for everything, you’re not just amazing photographers but truly a wonderful couple and I’m so happy you were part of our big day.
Nat & Dan”

Marie & Ted, Estepona, Spain, October 2016

“Choosing Radka as our wedding photographer was a no brainier having seen her stunning work on previous weddings. What we weren’t expecting, was what we got from Radka and James on our day. Unbelievably talented, knowledgeable in their craft and professional, an all round joy to have with you on your big day! As soon as Radka stepped into my wedding preparation bubble of happiness, it was like she’d been there all along. She’s such a lovely, genuine person and immediately puts you at ease which is definitely a huge bonus! Being a little unsure of being in front of the camera, we spent the entire time during our shoot doing our own thing, laughing and having special moments together which were all captured so beautifully. Absolutely nothing was too much to ask of Radka & James on the day and we ended up with the most incredibly beautiful album that exceeded all of our expectations. They captured our dreams coming true in exquisite detail and we couldn’t be any happier with the finished result! We feel so lucky to have had Radka shoot our wedding. If we had to do it all a thousand times over, we would honestly choose her again and again! Thank you guys so much for everything and for being a lovely addition to our wedding day!
Wishing you every deserved future success,
Marie & Ted xxx”

Rachel & Dean, Casares, Spain, September 2016

“Radka and James are amazing! So professional and discreet, we barely noticed them taking our wedding photos! They are also very genuine and friendly people, so you are at ease straight away! Clearly passionate and talented at what they do and we would encourage anyone looking for a wedding photographer to look no further! We can’t thank them both enough and feel like we have made new friends in the process! The wedding day can be a bit of a blur with everything that’s going on, so to have such professionals capture all the natural and posed moments of our day is a treasure to keep forever.”

Annette & Nikolas, Malaga, Spain, May 2016

“Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. We really love the photos, the colours and the warm feeling they give! We could not be happier. You did an amazing job since most of the time we and our guests did not even notice you were there! Thank you so much!”

Vicky & Kenny, Phuket, Thailand, February 2016

“Radka was the only person with me when I got ready for my big day and she was brilliant, it was just like having a best friend there, bear in mind we hardly know each other, she is just that sort of genuinely wonderful soul that has a wonderfully calming and uplifting personality. I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my day. There is one thing I can say about Radka, she understands and interprets very well what you are looking for out of your photos and despite having to deal with some very difficult conditions, extreme humidity, poor lighting and the annoyance of the hotel photographer, she still managed to capture the most amazing shots of our wedding. I cant thank her enough for her making my day so special, being a wonderful person (friend), so accommodating and capturing such fantastic memories that make me smile every time I look at them. Both James and Radka are superb at what they do and I just hope this isn’t the last time our path’s cross!!”

We LOVE them, thank you so, so much! I can’t believe we actually look like that! We had the best day of our lives and we will most definitely cherish the photos for a lifetime!
We also wanted to say an extra thank you for helping us so much with the Photo Booth. You didn’t have to spend so much time helping us to get that part right with the lighting and we are so grateful! Thank you xx
Love and best wishes,
Annika and Rich xxxx”

Myself and Jon would also like to thank you and James again for the incredible job you did, we can not recommend you highly enough. All the best for the future and I hope you don’t mind but I have passed your details on to a friend of a friend who is getting married in Marbella next year (she loved the pictures too!)”

Sally & Dave, Estepona, Spain, October 2014

“WOW WOW WOW! :-) :-) :-)
Thank you soooo much for the photos. I wasn’t expecting them for another few weeks, so that was a lovely surprise.
They are absolutely incredible. You’ve made us all look like movie stars – not an easy task haha! I can’t thank you enough. The shots are stunning, and the lighting looks just beautiful – we are so happy.
Thank you so much for your hard work, I am a quite speechless over them. I’ve shown a few people so far and they said that they are the best wedding pictures they have ever seen! My friends are quite biased, but I thought you would like the feedback anyway 😉 “

Ela & Pablo, Sotogrande, Spain, September 2014

“Radka, the photos are absolutely beautiful. You captured so many moments that we had already forgotten, so many emotions, and far too much champagne!
I love the amazing pictures of people taken during the cocktail hour and the dinner; they look so true to the happiness of the day…..
The pictures read like a story that comes alive in the photos, for example when Pablo said “novia”(girlfriend) instead of “mujer”(wife) during his speech…
We really enjoyed going through the album, and spent around three hours looking at all the photos!”

Katie & Kate, Benahavis, Spain, September 2014

“Hi Radka
The photos are out of this world, they are perfect in every way. Thank you so, so much.
Kate and Katie xx”

Laura & Ben, Benahavis, Spain, August 2014

Laura – “Wow!!!!!!! We have just looked through the photos and we have laughed and cried, they are just stunning. We can never thank you enough for capturing our day so perfectly.”
Ben – “As a semi pro – keen amateur photographer, who has only shot 3 weddings in my life I know I can only dream of getting shots that capture the whole day as beautifully as you and James have. The work you both put in did not go unnoticed and you both seemed to make it look so effortless and natural.”

Sarah & Dec, Estepona, Spain, July 2014

“Radka, I have just been looking and looking at the photographs!! You are truly a gifted photographer, I keep seeing news ones each time I look and new moments. You caught interactions between so many people, things that we missed on the day because we were running around to everyone. I adore each and every photo and they will be treasured for years and years to come, not just by us, but by our friends and family who absolutely love the pictures too. I can’t thank you enough for capturing our day so perfectly and making it look even more perfect than it was. Thank you so so much, I just wanted to send you this Thank You as I am looking at the photos now and I´m bowled over again!!!”

Celine & Brian, Benahavis, Spain, June 2014

“We love, love, love the photos, I have been looking at them constantly. I wanted to send you a nice email to thank you for your work but every time I go to do it I end up looking at the photos again, much to the annoyance of Brian. From seeing your previous work we knew your style was the one we wanted, and felt that if we got similar images we would be delighted. I am so happy we chose you as our photographer, and am beyond happy with our photos. I love how you captured our day from start to finish, your style is in no way imposing and seems so effortless. You have given us beautiful images that really captured the feel of the day and have a lovely flow to them. You managed to capture so many wonderful moments that trigger such special memories of the day for us. We have beautiful photos, which we will cherish forever, particularly the images of our parents and the boys. I still can’t believe how many pictures we actually received. So a very sincere thank you to yourself and James for giving us such precious photos.”

Ela & Pablo Engagement, San Roque, Spain, April 2014

“The photos are amazing, I love them all, especially the one with the horse and me close together. Great job, we will put them on our wedding website, and in the photo frames in our home. You definitely have talent, your photos are so true. Thank you for such lovely memories for a lifetime. :)”

Magdalena & Neil, Tarifa, Spain, September 2013

“We would just like to extend a massive thank you to Radka and her partner James for producing such high quality work during our special day. We were left in awe at the sheer intensity of the pictures in which they managed to capture the most intimate moments like a picture book. Most impressive was the fact we did not see Radka or James for the majority of the evening which is even more of a compliment that they produce work of this quality without being invasive. Radka made us feel relaxed throughout the lead up and was in every way endearing and professional whilst adding a sense of humour and lightheartedness to what was already a busy and stressful time.”

Ciara & Turlough, Estepona, Spain, August 2013

“Radka worked so incredibly hard, and started her day much earlier than scheduled.  It was particularly hot on our wedding day and she managed to work with no air-con in my hotel room, helping the bridesmaids locate my missing bracelet, and snapping like crazy in the church without being in any way obstructive.  The quality of her shots are outstanding and I’m so glad we selected her, and I suspect in the not too distant future she will be a most sought after photographer.”

***

Maria & Simon, Estepona, Spain, July 2013

“Radka´s photography is beautiful.  She arrived early on our wedding day and was relaxed, warm yet totally professional.  She fitted in with everyone on the day and all the guests commented on how lovely she was.  Our wedding photos were more than we could have asked for – stylish yet natural. I would absolutely recommend Radka again and wish her all the success she deserves. 100% happy!”

Renata & James, Gibraltar, June 2013

“I am a great fan of Radka’s work and love the style of her photography. My husband and I eloped and understandably photographs were very important to us. It was great to work with Radka she is full of ideas and enthusiasm as well as good at giving directions and guiding you through the photoshoot. We had a great day and most importantly – awesome photographs. I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else for this task.  Thank you.”
