I am a wedding photographer, retoucher and photography instructor based in Prague, Czech Republic. I have photographed more than 300 weddings. I am a member of The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP).
I am a wedding photographer from Prague, but I photograph weddings both in nature and in the city. Emotions are the most important thing for me at weddings. But I also like the extraordinary elegance in which we dress to celebrate the union of two lives. (wedding photo: Old Provostship, Prague Castle)
Do you also know that feeling when the whole world looks quite different in the evening, under the rays of the sunset? (Wedding photography at Prague’s Vyšehrad) The sun rays, whether shining through the leaves of the trees or through the historic streets of the city, always bring a magical mood to wedding photos. (Wedding photography in the Old Town of Prague)
I like both color and black & white wedding photos. Black & white photos look timeless and artistic. That’s why I always like to supply newlyweds with a couple of wedding photos in black & white. (Wedding photo: Mirror Chapel, Prague) Over the years I’ve been photographing, I’ve learned what brides often want, what are they afraid of, and what they don’t want. At the same time, every bride is different and has different ideas. That is why I emphasize an individual approach. (Wedding photos from Esplanade Hotel Prague)
The rain won’t stop us — Prague Castle
…but when the sun shines, we won’t be angry :-)
Romantic photo from the bank of the Vltava, several swans on the river, Charles Bridge in the background and the sun shining through the leaves of a tree.
The bride and groom looking on the panorama of the hundred-spired Prague at sunrise.
I love her candid heartiness in this photo. The groom lifted the bride up and spun her around a few times. If you look closely, you can see the faces of the bride and the groom filled with happiness :-)
In my opinion, wedding photos are not created to simply document the wedding day and kitsch. Wedding photos should capture the true closeness of people. Against high majestic cathedrals, we are just small insignificant people… This photo is not a photomontage, this is how magically the sky really got colored during one of the sunsets over St. Vitus in Prague. To be honest, the colors were less colorful originally, I increased saturation to them for a more vivid artistic tone.
Wedding dresses, whether castle-style or completely simple, they always deserve a lot of attention from a wedding photographer. (Wedding photo from Chateau St. Havel, Prague) I like artistic photographs, their precise well-thought-out composition and play with light. (Wedding photos from the courtyard of Prague Castle)
As a wedding photographer, I also like to photograph details. You normally don’t even notice them, but they look very nice when they are shown enlarged in photos. They can be wedding rings, dresses, shoes, flowers, cakes… I like to photograph wedding details either in a luxurious environment or in nature, with dewy flowers, with autumn leaves, etc.
As a contrast to the wedding details mentioned above, I don’t forget to take pictures of large ensembles as well as a wedding photographer. Not only churches and castle halls, but all the rooms where the wedding ceremony takes place, the reception halls, etc.
The morning photoshoot of the bride’s preparations is not intended to capture an ungroomed bride. It is an introduction to the story of the wedding day, introducing the main characters of the story and setting the mood. (Wedding photo: Karlovy Vary apartment) Pre-wedding photo shoot in Prague at Kampa. Shadows, lights and a trained photographer’s eye can lead to interesting artistic results.
Wedding photography should not appear rigid. We’ve added movement to this Scottish-style wedding as well, and it’s perfect for this wedding dress. (wedding photo: Červený Újezd Castle) Once again the same wedding, but photographed differently. At every wedding I try to create as many different looking photos as possible. Close-up portraits, full figures, from different angles, with different backgrounds, different characteristics of the light… I think the variety of wedding photos is important.
Wedding photography in the garden of Pruhonice castle (a short distance from Prague). I like when tree branches nicely frame the main subject of the photo. When you add pond and a floating duck, a pleasant wedding photo like this one can be created.
Another photo style: fashion. In wedding photos, I like emotions, people’s personality, laughing and tears. But wedding photos should be various, they must not be boring. This photo does not tell anything about the relationship of two people, instead of it shows the bride and groom in an elegant poses, as if they were talented models. (photo: after the wedding ceremony at Veltrusy Castle) I’m not too fond of unnatural posing, but sometimes, as in the case of this bride in front of the window, it leads to interesting results. Almost every bride wants to take a photo of her dress from behind, and if it looks something like this, the other ladies will surely envy your photo.
If you are looking for original wedding photos where everything is not boringly photographed from the same point of view, we can create something like that together. It’s not a fisheye, I don’t use that lens at weddings because I want the characters in the shot to look natural. But my equipment also includes a very wide-angle lens, which will bring your non-traditional wedding photos to life. Wedding dresses look especially great on stairs. Here they are further emphasized by how I used a wide angle lens and placed the bride in the dynamic diagonal line of the image. From an artistic point of view, this whole photo is about lines: the staircase, the dress and even the castle building.
Artistic wedding photography for those people who like aesthetics and something more than just ordinary wedding photos. You can proudly print this type of photo as a large format wallprint.
Similar style of photo as the previous one, but this time in color.
White parasols are a grateful object for wedding photography. But they are not a necessity, even without all the props you can create nice pictures. In my opinion, you (bride and grom) are the most important and that relationship which connects you.
Symmetrically solved wedding photo on the bridge. I would also print this type of photo on my wall as a permanent memory of the wedding.
A wedding in a church brings with it the advantage of beautiful spaces of real architecture. But every place has its advantages and it doesn’t even have to be anything fancy. I also photographed beautiful wedding ceremonies outside in the orchards, in the forest or on the farms.
Grooms sometimes enjoy taking photos with their cars more than with their wives :-) But here the groom posed with both at the same time for the wedding photo :-)
Can you find the bride and groom in this wedding photo? They are standing right under a tree :-) Trees grow for hundreds of years and outlive all of us. This particular tree from the photo has already witnessed many marriages. I wish marriage always would be as long as the life of trees.
During wedding photography session, I don’t forget to create nice portraits of the bride and groom, even close-ups. Not every portrait has to be a sweet romance, there are also couples who prefer a more representative style of photography.
Wedding photography with sparklers is becoming very popular. With sparklers, I have taken photos of various letters, heart symbols or even the fire spirals which you can see in this photo.
When it rains at a wedding, it doesn’t have to be disaster. I am able to take photos even in the rain, you can hide under a large umbrella or in some gazebo. Here you can see the reflection of the groom’s face in the glass with raindrops falling down on the other side of glass.
Wedding photography near the dam of the pond in Dolní Počernice in Prague. The flowing veil and dress, the dramatic sky, I love it all.
Wading through fallen autumn leaves at Loučeň Castle, Czech Republic. When I saw the colored leaves all around me, I felt like I was in another world. Who would not love fall immediately?
Wedding photography can sometimes speak more about the mood and emotions than about the appearance of the people. The newlyweds in this photo hugged each other and bravely faced the rainy and windy weather together. They stood alone, surrounded by darkness and a hundred thousand raindrops, but — they stood together. (You probably won’t see the drops on a mobile phone, but you can see them on a larger display.)
Rolls-Royce, limousines, vintage cars, motorcycles… All of this can make wedding photography more enjoyable for grooms. My style of photography is mild, so I think impatient grooms tolerate it well :-)
Wedding at Červený Újezd Castle in Prague-West district. The weather was a bit rainy so the clouds looked dramatic. People often want a sunshine in their wedding days, but a cloudy sky is more artistically interesting than a plain color of blue sky in photos.
White overlit sky is boring, I prefer something like that. By the way, notice what a nice non-traditional wedding dress the bride wore.
Spontaneous embrace of mother and daughter — the bride. Emotions are what I value most in wedding photos. (Wedding photo from Wallenstein gardens in Prague)
Wedding photos of brides sitting or lying in the grass with their dresses spread around them are still popular. The groom also laid down in the grass here :-)
I also like taking pictures of silhouettes, for example against the sky. It’s another way to show something that we can’t normally see with the human eye. Sometimes the tension before a kiss is more interesting than the kiss itself. Do you also feel that the couple in this photo is going to kiss each other in a moment?
I created this photo in a way that you can see the depth of space. Beginner wedding photographers often only create photos with no foreground or background. The photos are flat, so it is good to give the illusion of depth. (Wedding photo from Wallenstein garden in Prague)
Although this strictly geometric composition gives a calm impression, in this case it was not a stylized photograph. It was created in a fraction of a second during the normal movements and activities of the bride’s getting ready process.
Love knows no borders of countries or continents. I photographed Europeans, Americans, Asians and Africans. There are Japanese people in this wedding photo.
The hands of the bride and groom in the shape of a heart with the sunset shining through them. For some people it may be kitsch, for others a nice symbol of love.
When you look at this photo, how does it make you feel? Is it the same as groom and bride standing at attention in front of the photographer and saying “cheese”?
Wedding photography on the Charles Bridge in Prague, with the Old Town Bridge Tower in the background. The low sun shone interestingly through the bride’s veil.

Sometimes my photos are successful in competitions. E.g. this photo was awarded in the international wedding photographers competition in 2022.
This photo also recently won a prize in the international competition (ISPWP).

A beautiful wedding photo does not require any bones-breaking poses.
