TRUE AND CANDID
Choosing a wedding photographer is no simpler than choosing a wedding cake. Endless options, tastes, sizes. Despite spending hours, days and even weeks picking the right one, it's almost certain that it won't be to everybody's liking. And that's allright. It's only your taste that matters here. My wedding cake tastes somewhat like this:
I MAKE PHOTOS FOR YOU
I'll photograph your wedding as a reportage - in a true, real and genuine way. I won't go after those posed lifestyle pictures that should boost your Instagram account and astonish your friends. I'll make photos for you. Such photos that will have the power to time-lapse you back into your wedding day.
I DON'T CREATE MOMENTS
I won't force wedding guests pose and say cheese. I won't drag you away for a two-hour portrait session. I won't steal your attention for myself. I'll just never set the pace of your wedding day. More on the contrary, I'll do my best to be as discreet and invisible as possible. I'll observe, listen and take photos.
I PAINT IT BLACK... & WHITE
I love black and white in photography. It's timeless and it doesn't distract from what is essential in the scene. Quite probably, a lot of my photos will be black and white. I tend to use color in those photos where it either plays an inherent role for the content or where it just pleases the eye.
I SPEND A WHOLE DAY
I don't shoot "just-ceremonies" or "just-receptions". I capture stories and stories have their beginnings and ends. I'll spend a whole day with you, starting with morning preparations and finishing in late evening. I'll not head back home until the story is complete. I have no taximeter running.
I DON'T COUNT PHOTOS
I don't tell an exact number of photos delivered upfront. That's because every wedding is different. You can be completely sure that I won't keep any worthwhile photo for myself for no good reason. You'll get each and every photo that passes through my selection. I usually deliver 300-400 photographs.
I FAVOUR PAPER
Photos should be printed and since I couldn't withstand your lovely wedding photos being printed in a random drug store, I take care of the printing myself. I have my favourite lab - small, family-run and just awesome. So you'll get 50 selected 13x18 cm prints. Further printing can be arranged per request.
I guarantee 100% professionalism. I'll always be on time. I'll always have plan B (C and D). I'll have it all backed-up multiple times. Arranging a wedding can be struggling on its own. I'll not be the one to make you even more strugles. You'll just open the door for me in the morning and l'll take care of the rest.
I DON'T LIKE PACKAGES
I don't really enjoy wedding packages and complicated price lists. I'll shoot your 2020 wedding for CZK 16,000, all inclusive. Only when your wedding substantially deviates from standard, then I reserve a right to slightly adjust my pricing to cover additional costs (e.g. to rent a sea lion costume).
I LOVE IT
Lastly and most importantly, you can be certain that when I come to your wedding then it's never for money but simply for the fact that I've been looking forward to it like for Christmas. I'm driven by ingenuous desire to shoot, make photos for people, and to see the joy my photos bring to them.
DO YOU LIKE MY APPROACH?
I want your photographs to be natural and timeless. I want emotions and candid moments radiate out of them, not so a perfect retouch and fake beauty. I want you to love to come back to them regularly. And above all, I want you to take it easy and enjoy your wedding as much as possible. If you want this too then I really want to photograph your wedding.
