My name is Matouš Bárta and I’m a wedding photographer. I have not been one ever since and I did not dream of becoming one when I was six. Nor did dream of becoming a dustman. The future lay ahead of me in the great unknown, and it was the right way. My dear father, just like almost everyone at that time, used to take and develop photographs in our bathroom. For me this ritual was an inseparable part of my childhood. Sometimes I would join my father in the red dusk and watch pictures appear under the magnifier, which used to belong to my grandfather. My dad used a Zenit E – it was light sealed with carpet tape and it had to be rewind with surgical precision in order to avoid breaking the film. I used to use the very same Zenit when I started taking pictures myself at the age of fifteen with the plan to study Photography in Brno and much earlier than that I have begun observing the world around me. Now I’m twice as old, married to a great, loving wife and have two children and two cats. And I make a living as a professional photographer. To me that was something absolutely inconceivable fifteen years ago. While at school, I read a lot and attempted writing short stories. I never, however, got in it deep enough so that I would be happy with the result. Only later I found out that I do not have to be a writer in order to tell stories. All those skills that I missed while writing, I already possessed. Just in a slightly different area. Just like one can master a foreign language by learning to think in it, in the same way, through all those years I’ve been looking at and perceiving images that surrounded me, I also learned to see the world in pictures. The composition, the timing, the structure of the photography reaches me somehow subconsciously. Every wedding is different and has its unique story to tell. Every place has its own spirit and every human being changes and spices up the atmosphere with their presence. When shooting, my mind is completely clear. I don’t know what will happen and what the location will look like, all I know that I'm in there, I’m a part of it and I shall catch it in the photos. The photos, despite being still and mute, (and perhaps because of that) have the ability to capture the atmosphere and story in a completely unique way. Where I am today is the result of my life journey. The fact that you are getting married is the result of yours. I will be delighted to put into practice all I have learned in my journey in order to tell your unique story. [Prague Wedding Photographer]

WPJA Communiqué: Features
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures. While that’s understandable, it’s also important to remember the reason you’re getting married in the first place; not for the grand celebration, but because you love each other and want to be together. REMEMBER WHAT'S IMPORTANT You’re in this position now, about to get married, for...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more?

While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day. So how do you infuse your wedding with all the romance but none of the fuss? ALONE AT LAST Many couples these days are opting to elope rather than planning a large wedding. For the no-...Read more
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

You are an excellent photographer and we are very happy that you was with us on our wedding day. During the pre-wedding shoot, we got to know you and your style of work better. You are very subtle in your way of working and your photos capture the atmosphere perfectly. On our wedding day, you captured details and moments we would have easily missed. On this very hectic day, you were really calm and supportive. Your photos are unique, authentic and capture the atmosphere really well. Looking through them always brings us back to that day. Anne and Karol
