Love defines us, inspires us, enriches us, and adds meaning to our lives.

Capturing fleeting moments so that couples can relive them over and over again is what makes wedding photography so incredibly special.

Knowing that these mementos will be passed down to the next generation is incredibly humbling.

If you value real moments, beautifully and artistically captured - I would enjoy

hearing about you, how you two met, and what you especially desire with your wedding photography (real moments, tons of details, portraits, stylized portraits, etc.).

After all, your wedding is more than just pretty pictures.

For a more personalized approach, please contact me directly and not through a Prague wedding planning agency that often demands a commission that I am simply not willing to pay or must add to their 'rate.'

Some words from a fantastic human being and a kick-ass wedding photographer from the United Kingdom!

Sam & Andy - St. Thomas Wedding in 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, but he was also 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-around lovely guy.

- Sam & Andrew

Capturing Beautiful Moments Worldwide

Welcome to the gallery of Prague-based American photographer Kurt Vinion, who specializes in capturing beautiful moments around the world. With over 15 years of experience, I invite you to explore a diverse collection of imagery that showcases my skill, technical expertise, and creative vision.

Based in the enchanting city of Prague, I have been privileged to document weddings in breathtaking locations across the globe. From vibrant Hong Kong to picturesque Ireland, from romantic Italy to captivating Germany, and from idyllic Greece to the United States, I have had the honor of immortalizing couples' special days.

Please note that due to Brexit, I am currently unable to accept commissions for the United Kingdom.

Nevertheless, my time spent in Ireland and Northern Ireland, learning from one of the country's esteemed Master Photographers has deeply influenced my approach to creating elegant and classically beautiful wedding portraits. This transition brings both the art of elegant posed portraits to the contemporary style of capturing beautiful and artistic real moments that define us.

While wedding photography styles evolve over time, one thing remains constant: the significance of capturing real moments. While I enjoy posing, lighting, and the artful incorporation of stunning locations and meticulous details, it is the heartfelt and authentic moments that truly resonate with brides and grooms - long after their wedding day.

This commitment to capturing genuine emotions has earned the trust and praise of 10 professional wedding and portrait photographers worldwide who have sought my services. Along this journey, I have not only pursued my passion but also formed lifelong friendships.

I would like to thank the many couples who have graciously allowed me to showcase their wedding photography. Your trust and support mean the world to me.

Capturing the Essence with Style

As a former photojournalist turned wedding photographer, I have honed my skills in capturing beautiful and creative moments that go beyond the standard. Every wedding is a unique celebration of love, happiness, and joyful moments, and my goal is to ensure your photos reflect this.

While I embrace the photojournalistic aesthetic, I also understand the importance of guiding and enhancing the visual elements to create stunning imagery. With an eye for the best lighting and a keen focus on eliminating distractions, I may suggest adjustments or utilize flash techniques to elevate the visual palette. Ultimately, my photography style is tailored to each client's specific wishes. Whether you prefer a candid, documentary approach or a more creatively posed set of portraits, my commitment remains the same: delivering clean, polished imagery that exudes a sense of sophistication - worthy of magazines.

Interested in having me capture your elopement or destination wedding?

Much of what I create as a photographer is not only about my skill set but about the connection that I have with you, your family & friends. The interactions we have leading up to your day as well as on greatly affect the work I will produce. Having that connection and trust allows me to both personalize and create images that will surpass your expectations.

We can do an in-person or video consult where you will get a chance to share your story and your desires. I will also be quite happy to offer my insight on how you can have the very best experience possible from your wedding day photography.

If this sounds like the kind of photographer that you wish to have - please feel free to contact me today as I'd love to hear from you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Wedding Photography
My goal is to tell the complete story of one's wedding day with a focus on those once-in-a-lifetime moments.
