Erlangen destination weddings - combining art with photojournalism

A big welcome to all of you lovely couples, my name is Kurt Vinion. I am an American who photographs weddings in Erlangen, Bamberg, Lake Eibsee, and elsewhere in Germany. I worked previously as a photojournalist with The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and Getty Images in capturing international award-winning reportages.

After seeing so much misery I decided to change focus. Where capturing happy, quirky, and beautiful moments in couples' lives as well as the story of their wedding day is far more spiritually rewarding. Knowing that these images will become cherished family heirlooms is a wonderful feeling.

Why Erlangen, Bamberg, Nuremberg? That is a great question I am happy to elaborate on. I spent part of my childhood in Germany. Erlangen - my favorite place we lived in, Bamberg, yes, I know it is beautiful and also a sister city to Prague. I attended school in Nuremberg whose history and architecture fascinate me. Not only do I know those locations intimately I adore capturing weddings there. The bonus for those who are reading from that area - being based a few hours away in Prague makes the quality of my work quite reasonable.

Why choose me to capture your wedding day? If you want a photographer who can capture all of the joy and intimacy of your wedding day so that you can relive those fleeting moments - over and over again. One who can make you comfortable in front of the lens as well as one who understands what is really important to you. And one who can create some pretty badass portraits that will leave you smiling - you should get contact me.

I will also work tirelessly to deliver an exceptional experience from beginning to end. This includes creating stunning albums where every image looks flawless and can be uniquely toned for a more fine art look and feel. So no stress, no drama, and no worries, just beautiful results every time.

Specialist Wedding Photographer in Erlangen, Bamberg, Coburg for any theme!

I can also offer specialized wedding photography for any theme, tailored to suit your passion perfectly! Additionally, trash the dress, the morning after, or a special pre-wedding portrait session can also be created.
