    Nice to meet you

  • Confession

    I am camera shy and cameras pointed at me make me pretty uncomfortable.


I was born and raised in the Czech Republic and moved to beautiful, sunny, and humid Florida when I was 24. The short version of my name is 'Filda', hence the name of my photography business in case you were wondering where in the world I came up with this :-)

I have always been artsy and I'm a music freak and avid synthesizer player, and landscape & nature photographer in my spare time. I'm also a father to my amazing little ninja son who makes me smile and cringe almost daily.


I started photographing people in 2012 and what I learned along this fascinating journey is that portrait photography is about interacting with people rather than technical skills or expensive gear. I can have the best camera in the world but if I can’t capture people's emotions, none of the technical aspects matter. I don’t use assistants or complicated lighting setups.

I tell my wedding couples that I'm their wedding guest with a camera. I've found my way to unobtrusively move around people and take photos without them noticing because that’s when the real stuff happens. As much as I enjoy being part of big production high-energy weddings, I have ultimately fallen in love with elopements and small intimate micro weddings. I realized that closer connection between people at smaller events is where the power of photography shines.

I’m not a fan of posing so I prefer to give an easy direction and let moments unfold naturally. I think posed photos look artificial and cheesy, and if that's what you're looking for, I’m probably not the right guy for you. I do my best to make it as easy as possible for everyone and that allows me to capture each person’s character perfectly.

E-mail me and let's talk about your photography vision and how I & my camera can help you to capture your memories.

Other things I do

I make experimental electronic music under the moniker "feelda303" in my spare time when I'm not digging in the dirt and replanting my ever-changing patio nursery
I have deep convos with my kiddo about all kinds of weird stuff, we love to draw, play ping-pong & piano, and bike around the town
