What’s Included

Phone Or Email Consultation

Our journey begins with a consultation. This initial conversation helps me understand your vision and expectations, making sure we capture the essence of who you are.

Wardrobe And Location Tips

To help you prepare for your session, I provide wardrobe and location suggestions. I’ll guide you on clothing choices that complement your personality and the desired look. Additionally, I’ll recommend locations that align with your vision, whether it’s the hectic vibe of downtown or the serene beauty of a beach.

Online Gallery With Your Photos

After the photoshoot, I select and edit the best images to showcase your beauty and personality. The final photos will be delivered to you in a secure online gallery. It is a user-friendly platform that allows you to conveniently review, select, and download your favorite images, and optionally purchase any print products.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

We can shoot at a location of your choice, or if you prefer, I can suggest one that I think would be perfect. For full sessions, I usually recommend sticking to two locations at most. Although Key West is a small island, the traffic can get pretty crazy, and finding parking can sometimes be a challenge. I also suggest having one outfit change so that you have some variety in your photos.

Yes, I do! I’m more than happy to travel anywhere in the Florida Keys to you, and for full sessions, there’s no additional charge for travel in the Lower Keys – up to a 40-mile roundtrip.

The ideal time to take pretty photos is about an hour to an hour and a half before sunset or early in the morning around sunrise. During these times, the sun is much softer, and it’s usually not scorching hot either, sparing us from squinting or excessive heat during the shoot.

The choice between the full one-hour photo session and the mini 20-minute session depends on your specific needs, group size, and the type of photography experience you’re looking for. The full session offers more variety, and opportunities for different groups and varied shots, while the mini session is perfect if you’re seeking efficiency and quick shots, or have kiddos with shorter attention spans.

While I can’t control the weather, and sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, I will work closely with you to reschedule your photo session to a more suitable day or time. Just keep in mind that the weather in South Florida can change rapidly, and what may initially seem like a stormy day could turn into a beautiful one with a breathtaking sunset, especially during the summer.

I recommend avoiding distracting patterns, large brand logos, and loud colors like bright red, orange, and green. Instead, opt for more subtle colors and simple patterns. Pastel colors are a great choice, and you don’t have to worry about matching your partner’s or family members’ colors. The clothes you wear for your photoshoot will set the tone for your entire photos, so choose wisely, however, try not to overthink it and just wear whatever clothes make you feel most comfortable.

Of course! All the photos are cropped, straightened, and color-corrected so they reflect my photography style which you can see through my website and social media. I do edit minor blemishes but I do not offer any extensive retouching work, sorry!

Yes, the gallery where I deliver the photos offers a wide variety of high-quality print products so be sure to check them out. As much as I enjoy the digital era, there’s something truly special about holding a printed photograph in your hand or proudly displaying a canvas in your living room. It’s a whole different experience compared to letting all those beautiful memories gather dust on your computer or phone. Trust me, it’s so easy to forget about them!

I believe in a balanced approach. While I capture spontaneous, candid moments as they happen, I also guide and pose you when needed to create beautiful portraits.

To secure your date, I require a signed contract and a 50% retainer. Once these are received, your session date is officially reserved on my calendar.

Feel free to email me 🙂

MONICA POWERS

Filip was a perfect choice for our family photo session in Key West. We wanted something different from your average beach photos and we got exactly what we wanted! Filip was easy to communicate with, arrived on time, and went above and beyond when photographing my family. The pictures turned out amazing. I know my moody and shy teens weren’t the easiest when it came to smiling and posing but even so Filip got some of the most unique and beautiful shots that I will always cherish. Thanks again and you will surely hear from us in the future!

If you are in need of a photographer in Key West, look no further. Filip is absolutely amazing! He is very calm, easy to take direction from, and just overall makes the photography session feel relaxed and enjoyable. We are so happy with our photos and will be using Filda Konec Photography again for any future photography! Thank you so much for giving us photos that serve as memories for years to come!

Filip is amazing! We had him photograph our wedding in Key West in 2017 and the photos were so beautiful. He captured every moment, I still go back and lust over all of the photos. When our family was back in Key West, I knew we had to have Filip capture our little family in our favorite place. I cried looking through each beautiful photograph he captured.
