Featured Real Life Wedding S+A Prague St.Thomas wedding

Sam & Andrew - United Kingdom

St. Thomas Church wedding, Prague

I just love them.

What I love most is that you have really captured the day and the way Andrew and I were feeling and this is priceless.

As a wedding photographer myself, it was always going to be a big ask for someone to capture our big day and get us to behave ourselves!

Not only did I admire Kurt's work enough to want him to be our man, he was even part of the reason we decided to get married in Prague.

The results are magical and we've had so many people compliment us on such great wedding photographs.

I cannot recommend Kurt highly enough. He is an immense talent and an all round lovely guy.

Authentic Moments Beautifully Captured

After the cake has been eaten, the dress put away and the guests go home, the only things left are your memories and your photos. Your marriage will be a beautiful time in your lives and it deserves beautiful photography. It's a celebration that I would be honored to capture.

I love capturing those sweet glances, the laughter shared and those fleeting moments that occur between each of you and the joining of your family & friends. My goal is to capture the emotion of your wedding day while paying attention to every detail that helps tell your story.

If this sounds like the kind of photography that you wish to have, please connect with me. I would enjoy hearing about who you are, how you met, why here, and now - and how we can create the most beautiful experience for you and your loved ones.

About Kurt Vinion

Born in America and educated in Germany and the US, I am one of the lucky ones who calls Prague my home. My specialty is wedding photography that retains its classical elegance, yet with a photojournalist focus. My style can be best called modern, elegant and timeless.

I am also well known for my ability to use light in a creative way. This has garnered me awards (not that it really matters if you do not feel my images) such as the WPJA Top 100 Artistic Guild Photographers as well as many others.

I studied photojournalism in the United States under 2 incredibly gifted instructors who instilled in me the importance of connecting with people and telling their story. As my favorite instructor would say, 'Don't show me what it looks like – show me what it feels like'. From my days as a photojournalist that was always my mantra - to capture what people were experiencing at that moment in time.

This same philosophy applies to my wedding photography. Few can capture real moments in a beautiful & creative way as it takes great patience, dedication to the clients needs and living in their moment. You can feel the difference between those who capture real emotions and those who just pose their subjects and take a picture.

Since putting my Leica's down in 2007 and foregoing conflict and social documentary - I have focused on one thing and one thing only – capturing couples experiencing the happiest moments of their lives. It really is a privilege to be a part of something so beautiful as ones wedding day where the images captured will be cherished and past down to the next generation. It is something I never tire of and it always brings a smile to my face. When couples select me they realize they are getting not only the photojournalistic approach but an artistic and creative photographer who works tirelessly to create something truly unique.

In closing, I would like to say a big thank you to the many clients who have put their trust in me over the years. It truly is a great honor - one that I have and never will take lightly. Knowing that the moments I capture will be truly cherished is something I never tire of. In fact, I absolutely love it!

Great photos don't just happen. They take a keen eye, patience and an artistic sensibility.

Combine those elements with a focus on capturing authentic moments and the results are - priceless!

This is why 8 professional wedding & portrait photographers from around the world have chosen Kurt Vinion

to capture the happiest days of their lives.

Kurt's style is a mixture of photojournalism & fine art resulting in a style that is cinematic, honest and intimate.

Moments that truly matters

Wedding photography is about real moments: moments of happiness, humor and those intimate moments that turn photographs into cherished life long memories. Couples should relax and enjoy their wedding day knowing that their photographer will be capturing those fleeting moments.

Wedding Photography Style

There is a new trend in wedding photography where the focus is on art directing ones wedding day - especially those portraits, throw in a few detail images to really impress and basically skip out on the 'boring family photos' or other images such as those that occur within the joining of the two families. In essence, to art direct the bride & groom and turn it in to a magazine essay. This is fine for some couples but for others their expectations tend to be different. As much as I enjoy this style - it just does not feel honest. Your wedding day is about the real heart felt emotions that you two experience when you make the vow to live your life together as a couple.

This is why I strive to capture real moments that beautifully tells a complete story of your wedding day. From the ring bling to the bridal prep. From the wedding ceremony to the dancing and partying in the evening. And yes, all of those other moments that make your wedding day so unique and special. This also includes capturing the families interaction amongst each other and yes, those group photos. In essence I strive to capture every little thing. Sounds exhausting? Absolutely!

I realize that this style is not for everyone, but for those couples who chose me they can rest assured that there will be no short cuts taken and a true document of their entire wedding day will be beautifully captured.

Not only will you have those wonderful portraits, but you will have all of those beautiful moments shared between yourselves, your family & friends and wonderful atmospheric images that tell your story. Given enough time, I will also create a series of gorgeous portraits that will blow your minds and in your style.

It is my goal that you will have 100's of beautifully captured real moments that you will cherish for the rest of your lives!
