Many couples are eschewing the traditional boring / posed portrait sessions for ones that focuses on capturing real moments artistically and creatively. But there is a caveat; capturing real, heartfelt moments takes a bit more effort, dedication and attention to many factors: light, composition, color temperature, lens choice and etc just being some. The reality is very few can create and capture a session that feels and looks natural and is about the couples experience not the photographers ability to show off.
Of course having a couple who trusts in you and your vision and feels comfortable and confident in front of the camera is also a big factor. If as a photographer you can not get your couple to feel free, uninhibited or natural – you will fail no matter how hard you try.
They say pictures are worth a 1000 words. I totally agree with that assessment. Pictures should not just show you hot things look but more importantly how it felt at that special moment in time. I like to think that these pictures captured that feeling and for them – that is priceless.
Our pre-wedding photo session with Kurt was an amazing experience! Prior to our photo session, Kurt both videochat and met us in person to personalize our session. During the session, Kurt and his assistant made it super fun and low-stress, so it’s very easy to have lots of natural photos. Kurt also knows all the best and hidden places in Praha so it’s like going on a private tour with him. The photos that came out are mind-blowing. I highly recommend Kurt as anyone’s photographer as he’s such a nice person, fun guy to talk to, an amazing photographer and a photographer who cares 🙂
A special thanks to Linda for doing a fantastic job on the hair & makeup and of course a Big Thank You to the best lighting assistant Stefan!
