We believe that it is time to hit refresh on wedding photography.
Too often, engaged couples are swept into a whirlwind of trends and expectations – a whirlwind that takes the spontaneity out of a day that is often beautifully unscripted. We are delighted after every wedding to find *the* shot – the perfect shot that summarizes the feeling of the day. And that shot is never the shot the was planned or posed for.
The method behind our photographic madness is an exceedingly simple one: mutual trust, our client’s confidence in our abilities, and the freedom they feel to be themselves in front of the camera.
Once our clients feel that they can focus on simply enjoying the day instead of thinking about acting or posing a certain way, then the truth of that day – the happiness and love of the celebration – will find its way into our images.
We are inspired by you. Bring your personality and let’s do this.
— Pavel + Jessie Stehlik, Founders
FOUNDER COLLECTION: $5,000
Pavel + Jessie Stehlik are the founders of FotoBohemia. They have photographed weddings for 25+ years, and are the lead instructors for FotoBohemia photographers. Pavel’s background in documentary photography + Jessie’s love for all things pretty make them a powerhouse team in the wedding photography world.
PRINCIPLE COLLECTION: $3,000
Our Principle Photographers are associate photographers that you can choose in advance for your date. With 5+ years of experience, they are our top tier of associate photographers. You will be able to view their portfolio prior to booking. They bring all the best qualities to the table: style, experience + personality.
ASSOCIATE COLLECTION: $2,000
Our Associate Photographers have 3+ years of experience, believe in the ideals of FotoBohemia, and share our modern style + love for people. Your photographer is assigned 2 months before your wedding, and you can meet them via Skype or FaceTime so that you can develop a relationship before your wedding.
APPRENTICE COLLECTION: $1,500
Our Apprentices are the talented next generation of wedding photographers with 1-2 years of experience. They share our style, and with the training from our instructors they are excited and ready to document your day. Just like our Associate Collection, you can get to know them via Skype or FaceTime 2 months before your wedding.
We offer 4 Boot Camps per year, as well as 2 Advanced Education seminars. Our topics range from gear to ethics and everything in-between. Boot Camps are open to anyone and are intense training sessions for newer photographers. Advanced Education seminars bring our Associate Photographers to the next level of expertise.
We’ve given you the tools of knowledge, but by working with us you gain the experience necessary to grow your business. While styled photoshoots are fun, they in no way prepare you for the real life of wedding photography. You can only learn that on the job working with people more experienced that can guide you every step of the way.
“If you’re lucky enough to do well, it’s your responsibility to send the elevator back down.” – Kevin Spacey. If you’re part of the FotoBohemia tribe, you’ve benefited from the knowledge you’ve gained while you were here. As an Associate, you’ll help the next generation that comes along. It’s your turn to inspire. Be awesome.
You’re free to run your own business while working with us. You’re free to shoot in a modern, non-traditional style. In fact, that’s why we like you. You’re free to ask questions. We have lots of answers – even to questions you didn’t ask. (For example, did you know that most lipstick contains fish scales? Now you do. You’re welcome and I’m sorry.)
