YOUR DESTINATION PHOTOGRAPHER IN CZECHIA, COMBINING ART PHOTOGRAPHY WITH PHOTOJOURNALISM


Welcome to all the lovely couples from across the world. My name is Kurt Vinion. As an American photographer based in Prague, I've worked with The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Getty Images, Spectrum Pictures, and many highly regarded international periodicals before switching to weddings & portraits.

After quitting photojournalism, I decided to focus my abilities on documenting couples experiencing the happiest moments of their lives. Knowing that people can relive moments captured by me over-and-over-again is a proud feeling. Capturing heirlooms that will be a part of each couple's family's legacy is quite humbling.

The challenge of producing artistic and unique photography that surpasses each couple's expectations is what truly drives me. While many regard photography as a side job, I regard it as my life's mission. The many relationships forged with couples from around the world make this especially rewarding.

This photography website showcases some of my favorite pictures. There are no models, staged weddings, or 'styled shoots'; just real people experiencing those special moments that make life worth living.

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE & VALUE - YOUR DESTINATION PHOTOGRAPHER IN CZECHIA

Capturing imagery that showcases an artistic interpretation of light and atmosphere is something I bring to every photo experience. I am well known for creating unique, moment focused imagery that transcends the moment.

I also feel that every couple should have a collection of personally styled portraits that they will be especially proud of. Portraits both stylized and natural - that will be passed down to the next generation.

I also believe in using color grading to transform images into pieces of art. My software of choice is Capture One, and with additional digital retouching tools, I am able to produce art work that is worthy of your living room walls.

Some couples want a more natural appearance for their photographs, while others prefer a more artistic approach. My goal while working with each couple is to provide a selection of photographs that have a distinct and timeless aesthetic that suits them.

For those who love the feel of museum quality books, I offer the finest handcrafted albums in Europe. These magnificent mementos are made to last and will be treasured by future generations.

Taking great pictures is not enough. It is about the customer experience - from the beginning to the end. I have always prided myself on being and providing the very best for every client. Please review my clients testimonials page as well as my 5 Star business reviews on: Google, Wedding Wire, TripAdviser and many others.

Are you considering Prague for your elopement or destination wedding?

Unsure about which wedding planners you can trust? If you need some professional advice, I would be happy to assist. With over 13 - years of international wedding experience, I know which agencies you can trust. There is no quid pro quo.

The reality is many Prague wedding agencies are brilliant at having a stylish web presence feature fake weddings or 'styled shoots' with gorgeous models, beautiful locations, and those beautifully designed dinner tabletops. But when it comes to creating and organizing a real wedding - they fail to offer the type of services that brides and grooms come to expect. With 100's of wedding agencies to choose from, it can be daunting to find the appropriate one.

If you wish to chat, feel free to contact me. I would be happy to provide you with some feedback to ensure that you choose the very best wedding planner for your Prague destination wedding adventure.
