I have photographed weddings at nearly every venue in Prague as well as many castles and chateaus throughout the Czech Republic or 'Czechia'. From large VIP 250 + person gala wedding events to those smaller & intimate elopements. I am always humbled to be chosen to capture these unique experiences. The most unforgettable weddings? The ones where couples are able to devote some quality time to each other and really enjoy the moment.
Though I am happy traveling for destination weddings - I am always quite happy to stay in Prague. The bonus: blowing the minds of young couples who want to have a personalized collection of beautiful imagery. Want to know how you can have the best experience for your elopement or mini-wedding? Contact me as I would love to share.
Though we do offer set packages, the reality is most of our packages are customized to suit each clients needs. If you wish to discuss your wedding day more in detail or wish to inquire about having a specially created package please feel free to contact me.
The best thing about being a wedding & portrait photographer based in Prague? It is a relatively easy to travel around Europe. I have photographed weddings in: Ireland, N. Ireland, France, Germany, Greece, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Italy. I am occasionally asked to go further and have photographed weddings in Hong Kong at the prestigious Peninsula Hotel as well as San Diego and Louisville (my hometown) in the US.
If you are interested in having me capture your destination wedding - please do not hesitate to contact me.
Capturing gorgeous photos full of rich emotion as well as showcasing those wonderful locations is something we do best. As the original 'Prague pre wedding photographer' - we have been capturing & creating these sessions since 2008. Not only do we take beautiful photos but we also retouch them to the highest standard to ensure that when your images are displayed as large as possible there are no distractions or blemishes that would embarrass you. With this focus on quality I am regularly called upon to create these beautiful sessions around Europe and yes, even in Hong Kong. So yes ladies, we offer a very high Hong Kong standard for your pre weddings.
To see more, please visit my pre-weddings photography section that showcases various couples and their pre-weddings from: Czechia, Austria, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Germany, Italy, Malta and Slovenia.
Telling your story in a unique way is what I do best. As each couple is unique I strive to create a session that suits their wishes and their style. For those who are not quite sure what they desire, I will work with you during the session to provide you with options and ideas. Some couples like the more posed look, while others wish to have a more organic & natural feel. Most simply wish to have a mixture of styles - after all styles changes. As it is your session it is important for the two of you to feel comfortable and to really enjoy the moment and the creative process. I will not simply walk you around and pose you all day long - it just looks terribly cheap and how can you enjoy that experience?
At the end of the day It is my goal to create a body of work that will blow your minds, without blowing your budget. Images that you will cherish for the rest of your lives.
To see my various styles of photography, please visit the pre-weddings section. You should also visit our very popular sunrise session section - suitable for adventurous couples who demand more.
Family vacations and milestones in your families life are important - this is why we believe in working closely with each family to create something truly unique for your and your loved ones. As a professional with over 20-years of experience we offer studio portraits as well as on-location family portraits in various styles and genres. We offer several tiers of packages and prices to fit nearly every budget.
For our studio or on-location studio lighting - all of our images are retouched to a high standard. Additionally we can handle all of your printing as well as canvass needs. Interested in knowing more? Please visit our Family Portrait section to see more as well as our pricing and package info.
Looking for an event or gala event photographer in Prague? Needing professionally captured marketing & PR materials? As a professional who has been capturing many events for discerning clients worldwide I have the knowledge and expertise to capture literally anything that you need. From night portraits of Lear jets on a busy runway, to celebrity events, live television production stills and yes, those one on one portrait sessions of celebrities - I have the experience that you need.
Please review my clients list to get an idea of who I have worked with as well as the role I served.
With over 20 - years of photography experience Kurt Vinion can handle nearly any event you can organize as chances are he has already captured one quite like it. For video needs, we work with several English & Czech speaking crews.
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!
Are you considering Prague for your elopement or destination wedding? Unsure about which wedding planners you can trust? If you are in need of an honest and reputable wedding planner - I would be happy to assist. As an American with over 12 - years of international experience, I know which agencies you can put your trust in and which ones to stay away from. There is no quid pro quo.
The truth is some agencies are brilliant at having a stylish website with models and fake weddings or 'styled shoots' as they love to call them but they fail to offer the type of services that brides and grooms from Western Europe & N. America come to expect. While others may not have the flashy web presence - they make it for it by being honest, ethical and having a personalized approach that brides and grooms appreciate. The reality is - it is really quite hard to choose the right one without having a second opinion as the market is incredibly saturated.
If you wish to chat - please feel free to contact me.
PS: for my lovely couples from Asia, I am represented by agencies in: Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai. I am no longer allowing myself to be represented by any of the wedding planners in Prague due to their absurd commission demands and their choice of inexperience or sub par hair & makeup artists and etc. It is always best to hire your photographer directly for your pre weddings experiences.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me directly as I would be happy to speak with you!
