YOUR DESTINATION PHOTOGRAPHER IN CZECHIA, COMBINING ART PHOTOGRAPHY WITH PHOTOJOURNALISM


My name is Kurt Vinion, and I'd like to welcome all of the lovely couples from across the world. I'm an American photographer based in Prague, the City of a 100 Spires. I've spent my entire life capturing unforgettable and poignant moments. Professionally, I've worked with The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Getty Images, Spectrum Pictures, and a number of international periodicals.

After quitting journalism, I chose to focus my abilities on photographing couples experiencing the happiest moments of their lives: their wedding day. It is a fantastic feeling knowing that I am capturing memories that they will be able to relive over-and-over-again. These heirlooms will undoubtedly become a part of their family's legacy.

I also enjoy the challenge of producing artistic and unique photography that surpasses each couple's expectations, particularly for adventurous destination pre-weddings and creative portrait sessions. While many people regard this as a pastime, I regard it as my life's adventure. Having the opportunity to capture transitory moments that will never be replicated is a honor that I never take lightly.

This website showcases some of my favorite pictures. There are no models, fake or staged weddings, or styled shoots; just genuine couples sharing those special moments that make life so special.

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE & VALUE - YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN CZECHIA

Capturing imagery that showcases an artistic interpretation of light and atmosphere is something I bring to every photo experience. It is not enough to simply take a picture but to look for something unique that transcends the moment.

As a professional photographer, I feel that every couple should have a collection of personally styled portraits or poses that they will be especially proud of.

As each wedding is full with amazing elements and ambiance, these elements should also be documented to visually communicate your narrative. After all, you spent so much time in crafting a unique and novel experience for yourselves and your loved ones. These details are always captured and presented as part of your collection of images.

I also believe in using color grading to transform ordinary photographs into pieces of art. My favourite software is Capture One, and with powerful digital retouching tools, I am able to produce works of art worthy of hanging on your walls.

Some couples want a more natural appearance for their photographs, while others prefer a soft or dreamlike 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 work with the finest handcrafted fine art albums in Europe. These magnificent mementos are made to last and will be treasured by future generations.

I only accept a limit of 25 weddings per year, ensuring that each couple's coverage is gorgeously photographed, expertly edited, and developed in a color palette that is distinctively theirs.

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.
