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 this profession so special. Knowing that these photos will be passed down to the next generations is especially humbling.

The truth is, anyone can pose a photo, but to capture real emotions takes patience, a keen eye, and an artistic focus. This is why 8 wedding & portrait photographers internationally have chosen me to capture their most precious memories.

Creative Destination Wedding photos from Prague and worldwide

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, 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.

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 go 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.

I don't easily fall in any one aesthetic genre of wedding photography. I am not strictly a photojournalist nor am I a 'creative' or modern wedding photography. I will clean up the suite where you are getting ready, or move objects around to get a better angle. I will move you in to 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.

When I was considering leaving the world of photojournalism I sought out the best classical wedding photographer in Ireland to teach me everything about classical portraits & weddings. The littlest things like the placement of one's hands, or a small turn of the body, and yes, the angles of the face make a big difference. This is why when it comes to those stylish portraits my portraits retain a classical elegance. I will also key in on real emotion that happens spontaneously and as many couples want a more natural-looking set of portraits - I am happy to do this as well.

I will not copy poses or use posing cards, nor will I take photos that are unflattering. I will take great care to pose you in a way that makes you feel comfortable. I will find the best light, the best setting and art direct the scene so that the magic unfolds in front of my lens naturally. As one who understands the importance of making you look great I will always key in on the little things such as having you bend your legs or extending your arm, or turning your face to make it more pleasing.

When I create an image, either candidly or posed, there are three questions that I have in my head: how does the light look, is the composition working and is it flattering? Obviously the first are important, but it will not matter if you do no like the way you look in your photos. A great image should have all three. As a professional it is my goal to create compositions that are worthy of your living room wall and to be showcased for a lifetime if not generations. It also means I am a big proponent of working creatvely with light - to give your images that wow factor.

In short, my style is a mixture of everything - in what can only be described as: modern & contemporary.

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 Prague wedding 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!

Moments that truly matter
