Lukáš Kenji Vrábel | KENJI'S SHOTBOOK - Lifestyle, commercial, portrait and wedding photographer Czech Republic

Wedding, portrait and lifestyle photographer

As a little boy I wanted to be a hunter. In vain, anyone would look for linking to photography , so I'll tell you the truth instead of telling a story about a magical boy who became a photographer. Once in 2013, a poisonous spider bit me and I gained the superpower through the viewfinder to see and capture human joy, love, desire and other emotions. So I put on a well-fitting camera strap and decided to fight the crimes of bad taste, kitsch and poorly arranged poses. Every morning I start (after breakfast and coffee) from my hiding place and take pictures of weddings, portraits, lifestyle and leave happy and satisfied people behind who can still feel safe and happy in their city and enjoy this joy they can remind themselves with beautiful photos . Need to save too? Light a beard sign on the sky or call!

Who am I then?

I am a wedding, portrait and lifestyle photographer, retoucher and lecturer. I am part of the SB Films (advertising agency) and Svatber (wedding photo and video) team. I am an ambassador for Sigma and Zoner . As a lecturer I lead courses and workshops for , FotoŠ and the Slovak AKF Bratislava . I also write reviews and articles for .

I use creativity , emotions , passion , senses , heart and camera . I have had several successes not only in international competitions, a series of attractive exhibitions, a few awards and a failed career as a solo singer. I was born and graduated from grammar school in Jihlava, where I now live. But I also travel to distant places to take pictures. The biggest passion and motivation for me is my son, great wife, family, friends and sweets. I like to start new collaborations and welcome interesting challenges.

Are you on the same wave? Let me know about it.

It is definitely the BEST photographer ever!! :) All his work is very inventive and focused on detail. I fully recommend cooperation with him, because he is worth it. Not only that you have marvellous pictures but the atmosphere during photographing session is relaxed, it involves precise work of makeup artists and especially fun!:) Thanks for that!

We've got such spectacular pictures! They enable us to experience our day again and again. When selecting a photographer, we were afraid that photographing would take a lot of time or it would be artificial... But this photographing session was an intense experience and sort of a ride! Lightweight, hilarious, very fast and the outcome exactly as we wished for in our souls. We have got a magnificent series of memories from the whole day :-) We would like to thank the guys a lot and strongly recommend them.

Dita and Jakub

It is the best choice we could make:) I was a bit afraid from the photographing because my current husband hates photographing. However, Svatber gave both of us a pleasant experience and my husband even admitted that he really enjoyed it. It was a brilliant idea, pictures were distinctive – not just regular stuff you can see everywhere – the photographer had an amazing personality and you get rid of shyness because he is simply a cool guy. And an icing on the cake are super cool pictures and we are really grateful for them!
