Kurt's biggest award and personal accomplishment; learning that children from a Ukrainian orphange were adopted by families who viewed his documentary project on 'Ukraine's street children'. No award will ever top this personal achievement.
Focusing his talents on capturing happy couples who are celebrating their lives together, Kurt absolutely loves his work as a wedding & portrait photographer. 'I prefer the unobtrusive style of capturing real moments in an artistic and creative way. Good images don't just show you what it looks like, but more importantly what it feels like.'
When it comes time to capture those gorgeous and quite important posed portraits, Kurt will work with you in a relaxed manner to ensure that you look your absolute best. 'I am confident that you will not only enjoy the process, but you will absolutely adore the results.'
