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

My name is Kurt Vinion, I would be honored to be your wedding photographer.

The truth is, anyone can create a wonderful portrait, but to capture fleeting moments that illustrate how you felt at that special time in your life takes patience, a keen eye, and an artistic focus. This is why 8 wedding & portrait photographers from around the world have chosen me to capture their most precious memories.

Prague Wedding Photographer - featuring Creative Wedding Photography from around the world

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 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-around lovely guy.

- Sam & Andrew

Before they experienced the best cuisine in the city, they took a stroll where they could enjoy the sights and sounds of Prague.
Penar & Cem - grid
pre-sunrise wedding photos
Penar & Cem are two very busy Dr's from Istanbul. When we met up to discuss their wedding they were shocked and disappointed. 'There are too many tourists, will our photos look bad?' Their wedding was to take place at lunchtime - which is a photographer's nightmare. Realizing that they were early risers I made a proposal that they could not refuse.

Prague-based American wedding photographer available for your wedding or elopement.

This gallery is a collection of some of my favorite moments captured over the last 10 + years. I do hope you enjoy seeing the variety of imagery that this collection showcases. I also hope that you will appreciate the skill, technical ability, and creativity that is in this collection.

Though I am based in Prague, clients have invited me to capture their weddings in Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, England, Germany, Greece, Malta, N. Ireland, Poland, the United States (San Diego and Louisville), Slovakia, and Slovenia. Unfortunately, thanks to Brexit - I am no longer taking commissions for the United Kingdom. It is bittersweet as it was in Ireland that I learned the craft of creating elegant wedding portraits that retain a classical elegance from one of Ireland's Master Photographers.

Though wedding photography styles change the one thing that is constant, is the importance of capturing beautiful moments. As much as we photographers love to show off our posing, lighting skills, and yes, those fantastic locations - it is always moments that brides and grooms swoon about many years later. Perhaps this focus on capturing moments is why 8 full-time professional wedding & portrait photographers have sought me to capture their stories? Regardless of the reason why I am thankful that I can still do this as a living and to have made so many wonderful lifelong friends along the way.

I would also like to say a big thank you to those couples who have allowed me to showcase their wedding photography.

My Style of Wedding Photography

As a former photojournalist, I always focus on real emotions that capture the essence of the moment. As much as I love the PJ aesthetic I am also quite keen on being challenged in coming up with imagery that goes well above the standard of wedding photography. For me, the key is to always adapt, learn, and be as flexible as possible. This is why I will not only shoot in only one style or tone all of my images in only one way.

I don't easily fall into a single genre of wedding photography. I am not strictly a photojournalist nor am I a 'creative' or only a modern wedding photographer. I will clean up the suite where you are getting ready, as well as move objects around to get a better angle. I may also ask you to move into the best light to create a more flattering look as you are putting on your wedding dress. And no worries, I would be happy to scout out locations for your1st look if this is something that you desire.

When I was considering leaving the world of photojournalism I understudied with the best classical wedding photographer in Ireland in order for him to teach me everything about the elegance of wedding portraiture. The littlest things like the placement of one's hands, or a small turn of the bride's body, and yes, the angles of the face can make a big difference. This is why when it comes to those stylish portraits I hope that my portraits retain a classical elegance. Though many clients have asked to just keep it natural and I am quite ok with that too... Yet, I will always focus on capturing real emotion that happens spontaneously and as many couples want a more natural-looking set of portraits - I strive to create this. So in essence, I work tirelessly to create a wide body of imagery that crosses genres and styles.

If my style speaks to you - why not reach out and get in touch? I would welcome the chance to hear about you and what your vision for your wedding day is and to see if I am the right fit.

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!

Authentic Wedding Moments that truly matter

Wedding photography is about moments of love, happiness, tears, humor and those intimate moments that turn photographs into cherished life long memories. Couples should relax and enjoy their wedding day knowing that their trusted photographer will capture those fleeting moments so that they can relive them over and over again.

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.
