How do you know if your Prague Wedding Photographer is right for you?

As a bride & groom you should meet your photographer in person (and if that is not possible use a service such as Skype) to evaluate their ability to understand your needs, their professionalism and more importantly - how well you connect. As you will be spending one of the most important days of your life with your photographer, feeling comfortable and connecting on a deeper level is of paramount importance in capturing your story.

Taking the time to read their client reviews, view complete galleries of their work (and not just the portfolio pieces) and if needed - hire them for an engagement session to understand how they work are also worthy ideas.

The truth is quality photography that will stand the test of time is an investment. If you chose Kurt Vinion as your wedding photographer, rest assured that I will provide the highest standard for you and about you!

Important information brides should know about Prague wedding planners

Are you considering Prague for your elopement or destination wedding? Unsure about which wedding planners to contact? If you are in need of an honest and reputable wedding planner I would be happy to assist you based on your needs. Some agencies are ideal for luxury weddings, while others are best for the smaller, more intimate experiences. Some of the agencies are brilliant at having a stylish website - complete with models and fake weddings - or styled shoots as they love to call them but they fail to create the type of services that brides and grooms come to expect.

As an American with over 12-years of industry experience both internationally and in Prague, I know which agencies you can trust and which ones you should stay away from. More importantly as I believe strongly in transparency and honesty - I would be happy to offer you my unvarnished experience as well as the opinions of my previous clients.

There is no quid pro quo.

If you wish to chat about your needs please feel free to contact me.

PS: for my lovely couples from Asia, I am represented by reputable agencies in: Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai for pre weddings photography. If you have been told by a Prague based wedding planner that they represent me for pre weddings portrait sessions, that is no longer true. If you are concerned that you are not actually getting me for your pre wedding in Prague please contact me to inquire about your date and agency.
