My name is Petra and I'm a lifestyle, portrait and wedding photographer living in Jacksonville, FL. Born and raised in former Czechoslovakia, I came to US in 1999 and quickly settled in a beautiful sunny Florida. My artistic journey started here more than 10 years ago with graphic design followed by 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 for local businesses as well as individuals.
Personally, I get inspiration from simple things in life: travel adventures and spontaneous moments spent with my family and friends, breathtaking florida sunsets or a glass of good wine. I'm a visual artist, dreamer, yogi and a huge animal lover, so fur babies are welcome to join in on the photo session fun!
I would like you to take a moment to look around my website. If you like the romantic beauty I capture in my photographs, drop me a line. I'll be excited to meet you and chat with you about your wedding day or any other photo needs you may have.
