My name is Petra Terova and I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer living in Jacksonville, FL. Born and raised in former Czechoslovakia, I came to US in 1999 and quickly settled in 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 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. Having studied both graphic design and photography, I am a total visual addict. I'm an artist, dreamer, yogi and a dog mom, which naturally lead me to also explore pet photography and subsequently to other animal related photo adventures.
