I am a Czech by heart and a Photographer by soul.
My name is Petra and I'm a lifestyle, portrait and wedding photographer based in Jacksonville, FL. My artistic journey started more than 10 years ago with graphic design and studies in black & white portraiture. I graduated from the University of North Florida with a degree in fine arts and it was there I found intense passion for photography. From studio and location shoots to darkroom film and print development, I explored many different genres and photographic processes.
My passion for portrait photography quickly grew into a professional pursuit and I am loving every minute of it. The joy and love I see in people and the celebration filled with movement and emotion makes it easy for me to focus my attention on lifestyle and wedding photography. I also create personal fine art photography and design projects for local businesses as well as individuals.
I get inspiration from simple things in life; spontaneous moments spent with my friends, breathtaking florida sunsets and a glass of good wine, I am a visual addict, dreamer, artist, yogi, animal lover and a mom to two adorable pitbull mutts.
