Client Testimonials

Sam & Andrew - United Kingdom

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 soemone 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 why we decided to get married in Prague.

On the day he was great, never demanding but always guiding us. He is a pleasure to have around on a wedding day! He certainly went above and beyond for us, agreeing to come out onto the streets of the city in the rain.

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.
