Meet the team

– the family –

We are a Chicago wedding photography team.

Pavel got his very first camera in 2013 and shot his first wedding in 2014.
Since then, he has shot over 40 weddings, with many more to come.
Very soon after we got eloped in 2015, both our passions for people and art as a medium of expression
merged into what is now the family business, The Adamkovi.

 The Main Photographer

 

Name: 

Pavel Adámek

What is your role on the team?

To research hours and hours a day all the newest and most AMAZING gear for shooting and to convince Kristen to let us buy all of them. That way I can shoot awesome photos for you 🙂 Also, to have fun on your wedding day because if I’m terrible then … well… let’s just say I’ve seen how terrible photographers affect the outcome of the photos :\ BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT because I’m a simple kinda guy who always knows how to have fun. My wife says it so it must be true.

 The Main Editor

 

Name:

Kristen Adámková

What is your role on the team?

To sit hours and hours in front of a computer and obsessively make sure each and every photo (even if there are literally ONE THOUSAND OF THEM IN ALL) is absolutely perfect and has that natural kind of UMPH. It’s kind of nuts. Pavel thinks I’m crazy for it. But I know he is secretly grateful for it 😉

Introvert or Extrovert?

Ugh labels. Introvert. I guess. No JK I’m a hardcore introvert.

Love Language:

Banter.

How long after you met Pavel did you fall in love with him?

The first day I met him (don’t tell Pavel). He just bantered so well it was impressive.

What about photography do you love most?

A lot of things. A huge thing that strikes me about it is that each camera captures a split-second moment in time that no other camera nor pair of eyes can ever etch in time. It’s like there are millions of the same invention out there and only one can say “I caught that. Forever.”
