Testimonials

“Thank you so very much for these stunning photos! Each one of them is a masterpiece. They capture the beauty and magic of Prague better than any postcard I’ve seen. We especially love your use of angle to create a sense of movement, use of contrast to emphasize the dramatic effect, and spontaneity in capturing the most naturally perfect moments. The photo shoot experience was a fun filled adventure! We were always on the move, making sure we hit all the best picture perfect spots in town, but at the same time, discovering many picturesque sceneries along the way. You are not just a photographer, capturing things as they are, but an artist, capturing things as they are imagined. Thank you for these absolutely beautiful photos!”

“I had the idea of proposing to my girlfriend while on our holiday in Prague, and decided to get George Hlobil Photography to capture the proposal moment, followed by a surprise pre-wedding photo shoot with my girlfriend, all in one trip! They helped me out with the planning of my surprise proposal to the finest details, from suggestions to the proposal site, to wedding gown bridal salon recommendations and booking, make-up artist coordination, car booking and answering all my queries with her utmost dedication to ensure that things turn out well despite our tight schedule. It was a great proposal, with George posing as a “photographic tour guide”, until I popped the question, leaving my girlfriend Ariel 100% surprised.

We subsequently had a full day pre-wedding photo shoot with George and Michaela. They ensured that everything went according to plan and was very smooth. We absolutely love the way George teached us to pose and his bubbly character made the photoshoot  very relaxed and fun. He worked very hard to capture our best angles, and the photos that we received after were fabulous!

A full day photo shoot left everyone very tired but George and Michaela tireless efforts to help us along the way made it a lot easier. It was like a fun day out with no stress. None would have been possible without the help from George and Michaela.Big thank you to Michaela and George that helped me out in planning the perfect surprise proposal!”

“We are writing to thank you for providing such a great photo shooting experience for our pre-wedding. We enjoyed the time with you very much and are happy with the service and the photos provided.

Originally, we booked the service on 19th April morning, the second day of our vacation in Prague. However, due to the bad weather forecasted in advance, we talked to Michaela to see if there was any chance to postpone. With the prompt replies and close monitoring on the weather by Michaela, our booking was rescheduled to the next day, which was supposed to be a beautiful day. Thanks for the great arrangement anyway!

On the day of photo shooting, the weather was still very cold such that we were always shivering, though we were mostly exposed to the sun. In the short 3 hour session, George and Michaela showed great deal of care and were very considerate to us. We were brought to several popular scenes as scheduled but they are mostly surrounded by the crowd of tourists. With the professionalism of George, we had our photos taken at the best locations with almost little to no interference from others. Also, thanks to the suggestion of George on the poses and the great help from Michaela for the photo effect, appearance… etc., the photo shooting could only be completed in a smooth way.

Overall, it was such an unforgettable experience joining your excellent service. Thanks once again for helping on our prewedding matters. The package was absolutely good value for money and we would strongly recommend it to others.”

“We would like to thank George and Michaela for the photoshoot from our wedding day in Stirin outside Prague. George made us feel at ease, and chose the most beautiful spots for the photos. Most importantly, George was happy to work together with us, and listen to our preferences as to the type of photos/ settings we wanted, while also giving us suggestions based on his experience. We have fun memories from the shoot, and beautiful photos from our special day 🙂 We would highly recommend George to anyone wanting to have a photoshoot in Prague!”

“It is a memorable experience to have George and Michaela to be our professional pre-wedding photo shooting planner.  What a wonderful team!  We have the best photographers, make-up and hair artist and chauffeur team and we truly enjoyed the entire experience!  It wasn’t just a mission to be accomplished before our wedding, it was indeed an artistic journey!  We are impressed by their professional advice and talent.  
We started off the day early in the morning, it was snowing but it didn’t stop us from feeling excited and happy.  It was really cold but we couldn’t stop laughing!  The make-up was perfect and it was hassle-free.  George and Michaela took great shots from difficult angles and the duo tried their best to take us through all iconic spots in Prague without being obstructed or disturbed by the tourists around .  We have taken a lot of great shots and we have difficulty to pick our pictures from the selection as they are all fantastic!  Amy and I had rounds of discussion about the pictures to be picked!! 
Thank you George, Michaela, our chauffeur and makeup artist who made our photo-shooting so completed!  We would definitely recommend George and Michaela to friends across the globe”.

“We cannot recommend George and Michaela enough for whatever you need photographed!! George & Michaela shot a boudoir shoot for me the days leading up to our special day. They were professional and courteous and the photos turned out AMAZINGLY. They prepared the photos and had them printed in time for our special day.

On the day we had photos taken of myself (Bride) and my husband which was fantastic and a lot of fun. Through out the wedding it was like they weren’t even there. They got some amazing shots and kept everyone together and focused so that we could get the shots we needed. When it came time for our photo shoot George provided amazing direction and as a team these guys did an AMAZING job. They even worked along side our videographer seamlessly. We are very happy with the whole process and love our end result 🙂 Thank you so much guys!”

“I was traveling with my girlfriend to Europe and decided I wanted to propose while we were in Prague.  I began researching to find the right spot to propose and a photographer to capture the proposal.  I came across George’s website and loved his work and quickly reached out to him to coordinate the date and plan.  George was terrific to work with and was able to help me coordinate a lot of the details of the surprise — helping me choose a great spot, monitoring forecasts to avoid any bad weather, picking the right time of day to avoid crowds, etc.  We were able to easily coordinate all details for our photo session over email with no problems at all.

During the day of our photoshoot, we met up with George by the Charles Bridge and moved around to various locations to capture beautiful pictures before and after the proposal.  George was very creative about choosing locations and suggest poses for us in various spots.  He was friendly and had a good sense of humor, which made us feel very at ease during the shoot.  We received the gallery of edited pictures a few weeks after our shoot and they turned out amazing.

It was definitely a pleasure to work with George and if you ever need any high-quality professional photography done in Prague, I would strongly recommend working with him.”

“While we were planning our honeymoon to Europe, we knew we wanted to take (post) wedding photos there too but we could not settle on a photographer or which European city until we saw George Hlobil’s portfolio! We were completely blown away at his artistic touch and his ability to not only capture the beautiful scenery in Prague, but to make the couples he was photographing look so beautiful and surreal. We love a dramatic look in our photography and so George became one of our top choices. It was not until we emailed a few times and spoke to his manager Michaela did we realize that there would be no other option aside from choosing George and Michaela because they were so helpful and responsive to our questions and concerns. From the start we knew it would be a perfect fit.

Fast forward to the day we arrive in Prague from Canada and guess what? Air France loses our luggage (containing our wedding dress, shoes and suit for the shoot) when we were supposed to be taking photos in 4 hours. We quickly contacted Michaela and she gave us the utmost flexibility and allowed us to change the shoot to the next morning, in hopes that either we had bought new outfits or that our luggage was finally found. Throughout that evening as we went to try on different dresses for the shoot (it was Friday night), Michaela made sure she was available and with every photo we sent her, she gave us her opinion to help us decide what to buy for the shoot. It turned out our luggage did arrive so in the end we still wore our wedding attire; however Michaela’s amazing attention to our needs prior to the shoot was amazing.

During the shoot, George and Michaela were a fantastic team, always working to ensure that we weren’t cold (George was always passing us clothing to cover ourselves from the wind) and making sure that the crowds forming and watching behind us were as out of sight as possible in our photos. We loved how funny George and Michaela were but we also appreciated their professionalism and George’s ability to pose and direct us at all times because we did not know how to stand/place our hands/smile, so this we definitely appreciated and what we found to be most outstanding.

We saw some quick preview images of ourselves on George’s camera and we were just in awe at his mastery! We cannot stop raving and complimenting George and Michaela; they have genuinely exceeded our expectations for our photoshoot. They took us to beautiful locations and always made sure we were comfortable. We can’t even count how many times they asked if our feet were okay because they asked so many times – that’s how much they care, it’s amazing! They were easy to talk to and did not waste any time as they were so efficient and knew exactly which routes to take to best reach all our photo locations.

We can’t recommend George Hlobil Photography enough. In addition to that, Prague itself is an outstanding and beautiful city! Come visit Prague; when you’re here, you MUST take photos with George and Michaela at George Hlobil Photography, you won’t regret it (you can thank us later!!), we promise you!”

“Thanks George for being our photographer. He gave us a wonderful photo shooting on the big day in Hluboka castle and Cesky Krumlov. During the big day, George had a good communication with us and made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Even though the time schedule was tight, he captured all the memorable wedding moments and the beauty of bride (the most important thing).He gave us useful advice on having a good pose and the best shooting locations. As our family members came to our wedding, George’s photos show the interaction between us and our family. It is very touching when your wedding album includes your family. George’s photography style and editing skills are the main reasons of choosing him as our Photographer. His production looked like a painting from a fairy tale. If you need to find a Photographer in Prague, George is the best option. He will give you a great experience during your wedding.”

“We would like to thank George and Michaela in helping to make our photoshoot in Prague such a unique and fun experience. They clearly knew where the good sceneries are in Prague and helped to make those backgrounds come to life in our one in a life time wedding pictures. Even though it rained for a while in Prague, it seems that George and Michaela had prepared everything in mind, with umbrellas and other places to take photos. We recommend George and Michaela if anyone plans to have their wedding shoot in Prague.”

“It was our 5th anniversary and we had planned a trip to beautiful Prague. We thought to get a photoshoot done while in Prague for life long memories. While searching for the photographers we came across George’s website and the moment we saw the pictures on his website, we were blown away by the creativity of the photographer. We e-mailed George, got a prompt reply from him and booked our photo shoot. George has been marvellous  right from the first e-mail communication until we met him, he is very professional, organized and lots of fun during the shoot. His experience & imagination added magic to the pictures. George has captured each and every moment of us so beautifully that we cannot resist admiring them over and over again. George is the BEST – any of my friends, visiting  Prague there is no one other than him to get the photo shoot done. We are so lucky that we had this opportunity.

We thank you deeply from our hearts to make our experience in Prague a memorable one – giving us life long memories :).”

George was extremely accommodating right from the start. When I first stumbled on his website, I thought to give him an international phone call to see what his service provided. But without accounting for the time difference, I ended up waking him up in the middle of the night. Not only did he act professionally and kept his composure, he answered all my questions over the phone and also sent me a follow up email the next day. Now that’s what I call showing dedication and passion to his work. Thanks George for not screaming at me over the phone =).

As we stayed in Prague for only 3 days, we were quite constraint in terms of timing. When we arrived, George and Michaela immediately came to see us to give us a rundown of the schedule for the photo shoot day. However, both my fiancée and I wanted to break down the 8-hours photo shoot so that we could capture Prague sceneries both in day and night time. Both of them didn’t even hesitate and said they were willing to work around our needs and wants.

Needless to say, the photos turned out great and wonderful.

I would also like to give credits to all the people involved, including the makeup artist, drivers, and obviously George and Michaela. The once in a lifetime experience turned out to what both my fiancée and I had imagined.”

“I highly recommend George for his photography. He did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding photos. He has a tremendous talent  for what he does and really cares about the end result. We came from  Vancouver Canada and George came to our hotel the day prior to discuss plan. It was all so well organized and we really enjoyed the day. We absolutely love our photos! I showed my parents yesterday and I wish I could have filmed their reaction. Thanks George!”

“It was always our dream to have our pre-wedding photos taken in Prague and so we wanted to make this a truly memorable experience. Asking George to take our pre-wedding photos was truly a right decision and our dreams did come true. From the moment we agreed on the details of the photo shoot, we were always in touch with either George or Michaela who answered every single question we had.

On the big day itself, George was very attentive and patient with us. He made sure that we thoroughly enjoyed this special experience and made it a memory we will always cherish. Our initial nervousness gave way to excitement and joy as we grew relaxed with each passing photo and both George and Michaela are such fun and friendly people to be with, yet talented and professional at the same time. Our sincere thanks also goes to Michaela for helping source the bouquet, makeup and hair stylist and logistics for the day. It would not have been possible without her help.

Having seen George’s previous works, we knew we would be receiving first class post production edited photos and we were not wrong. The final photos were simply gorgeous! The finishing touches on our photos were amazing and we were happy to have made the decision to have George capture these memorable moments for our wedding. I would truly recommend George to anyone who is considering a photo shoot in Prague!”

“We wanted to do our engagement photos in Prague but didn’t know any good photographers in the area.  I found George’s website just by searching for Prague photographers online, I liked the reviews he had and the sample pictures on his website.  I was slightly worried at the beginning about making a non-refundable deposit payment to some man I have never met in a country I have never traveled.  We exchanged some emails with George, set a meeting time/date but I still didn’t know what to expect.

We only had two days in Prague and weather did not want to cooperate with us at all, we had a high chance of rain during both days of our photo shoot. Let me tell you that I was presently surprised by the amount of time and effort George put towards making sure our photo day went perfectly.  George was very much on top of his game, very quick and easy communication throughout the whole day of our planned photo session.  He was very flexible around the timing of the shoot, showed us a better resource for looking up more accurate weather in the area, told us the best places to park.  Once we actually met we were even more impressed with his professionalism and experience, he showed us all of the best locations for photos and coordinated the whole thing from top to bottom.  The whole experience was simply phenomenal and stress free and I have only George to thank for that.  Trust me when I say that the hardest decision you will have to make will be how to pick out the best photos, because all of the photos will be phenomenal.” Thank you very much!”

“George was our photographer for our wedding in Prague. We are Canadians who got engaged in Prague in 2013 and decided to head back for our small wedding. We worked out all of the arrangements for photography with George via email and everything went perfectly. George was easy to communicate with from a distance and very flexible in coming up with packages and plans that would suit our needs/desires. In the end, we did managed to coordinate an early morning (really early 5am) make-up and hair trail with an early morning photo shoot with George 2 days before the actual wedding. This was great – it let us have a relaxing and fun time with George before the wedding and put our makeup and hair trials to good use (instead of just looking great for no reason!) Most of our favourite pictures ended up coming from this early morning shoot when there weren’t as many tourists around and we were able to capture some great shots of the amazing Prague scenery. The day of the wedding was just as much fun. George came to our AirBNB and took photos while we were getting ready and then went off to the Charles Bridge Tower to get pictures there while waiting for us to arrive of the ceremony. And wait he did – as we ended up being about an hour late! After the ceremony we took more pictures with George. He was very “on point” and kept to the schedule – it felt a bit like a marathon (partly because we had lost some time due to the delay of the ceremony), but it was all great fun. We were exhausted by the end of it all – but it was worth it! Once we were done, we took a break back at our apartment and then headed up to Villa Richter where George took some more photos of our guests and the reception before departing to let us celebrate for the rest of the night on our own.

George’s photography is very unique, which is why we chose him. There are definitely a couple of photos that we will be blowing up large to show off as the pieces of art that they are! Our only wish would be for more photos!!

If you’re in Prague and looking for a photographer, you cannot go wrong with George. He is so friendly and extremely talented. Even if you’re just travelling, I cannot think of a better souvenir than to get some family or couple photos taken of your trip by George – and you’ll get a great tour of the city while you walk around with him getting pictures in all the right spots!”

“My wife and I had the serendipitous good fortune to have George as our wedding photographer in Prague.  We planned the wedding ourselves from the United States, having never been to Prague before.  George came highly recommended and after seeing his work, we were confident that he would be a great photographer prior to meeting him.  To say that our expectations were more than exceeded would be an  understatement.  George was very communicative and helpful during the whole process, before we even left for Europe.  During our first day in Prague, he met with us personally to discuss the logistics of the wedding, the photo shoot, as well as helpful tips about Prague in general, including introducing  us to what ended up being some of our favorite cafes and restaurant in the city.  During the day of the wedding, George was on point in every regard.  We had a lengthy and involved photo shoot involving almost all of the area from Prague Castle to Old Town, and in and around our church.  George facilitated transportation, skillfully managed surrounding crowds and tourists, and kept our rather energetic/rowdy bridal party on task throughout.  During the wedding ceremony itself, George was extraordinarily helpful, not only with his photography, but with the coordination of the ceremony itself.  Within a few days of the wedding, George had already posted some great photos, and within a very short time he had completed the entirety of the editing process.  We were more than pleased with the quality of the end product.  In summary, if you are looking for someone who is professional, reliable, technically skilled, very creative, who knows Prague intimately, and who more than delivers, we cannot recommend George highly enough.”

“We had a great time working with George. He was friendly, humorous, professional and great fun to work with. His eye for a picture was second to none, and on several occasions he managed to quickly put together a picture that might otherwise have been missed. We are delighted with the final results, and the turnaround time from photo shoot to seeing the finished pictures was very quick. We would highly recommend George for anyone who is looking for a photographer in Prague!”

“We had a comfortable working experience with George Hlobil. He is very professional and thoughtful. Our photo shoot last only 3 hours, but we manage to get beautiful pre wedding pictures. George knows at what angle the bride and the groom look gorgeously and he puts you in the greatest scenes of Prague. Thanks to him we now have a stunning pre wedding album. If you are looking for a skillful photographer, who is willing to do beyond what you expect, George Hlobil is someone you can rely on”.

“Taking pictures with George was a great experience. The best investment Rory and I made. Seriously. From our first correspondence (emails between USA and the Czech Republic), George was very friendly, professional and answered all my questions. During our wedding day, he made everybody feel relaxed and told us to have fun. So we did! The best part was taking pictures between ceremony and reception. We only had an hour and half to take all the shots!!! George’s experience and knowledge of all the places (and shortcuts how to get there ), made it possible to take pictures in front of Prague Castle, Orloj clock, Vltava river, and St. Vitus cathedral. We even made it to the Charles Bridge. It was a rush, but it was fun and George made it happen!!! He stayed with us till the evening, making sure that all the important wedding moments were captured… Great experience and his photography style and editing is one of a kind!!! The first pictures were ready the next day and I never forget the moment when I saw our first edited picture. It was breathtaking… exactly what I imagined and hoped for. It looked like a painting from a fairy tale. I couldn’t wait to see the rest of the pictures. George also gave us an option to purchase all the unedited pictures from the entire photo shoot. That was very important to me because not too many photographers will do that. I loved that option! Rory and I were extremely happy with George’s work and we would highly recommend him to anybody! If you ever plan a wedding in the Czech Republic, George is your photographer!!!”
