Prague wedding & pre wedding photographer I London I Venice I Rome I Europe

My name is Kurt Vinion, I am an American photographer living in Prague who focuses on creating timeless, artistic and elegant wedding photography and pre weddings photos for discerning clients from around the world.

My approach is simple, to let your wedding day unfold naturally while I capture those beautiful moments that will be cherished for generations. Truth is, anyone can take a picture, but to capture the spirit and feeling of the day is simply priceless.

In terms of style, my photography is really a mixture of many things: reportage, magazine styled portraiture, creative natural style imagery and no worries, when it comes to those very important posed portraits - I can pose like the best of them. The reality is -  my goal is to simply make you look more fabulous than you already are. 

Additionally, I am sought out by couples from around Asia who demand the very best in pre wedding portraits in not only Prague but in Europe. If you wish to have a magazine styled pre-weddings portrait session or a very stylized night portrait session, my team of professionals can create one for you and in a very fun and relaxed way - after all when you look great we do too. So no stress, no worries, just beautiful timeless and elegant pre weddings that will blow your families & friends minds (without blowing your budget).

My background

My career as a wedding photographer started in 2007 when a former colleague demanded that I fly half way around the world to capture her wedding in San Diego. At the time, having a 'reportage photographer' at one's wedding was a novelty. A few weeks after returning to Berlin (where I was photographing celebrities for Getty Images and Wire Image) I was asked by a another friend if I would consider photographing his wedding in Italy. Both of these weddings were incredible experiences and since then I have been hooked. 

People often ask how is is that a successful photojournalist (prior to celebrity portraits) crosses over to weddings? The truth is, after working very hard as a photojournalist traveling around the world, I was looking for a new change and new direction in my photography – one where giving back was more rewarding than capturing the misery associated with reportage and documentary work. Missing out on my children growing up was also a very big factor  especially as children grow up so quickly.

The reality is, capturing weddings in a modern, yet beautiful and artistic style not only captivates me, but invigorates me and at the end of the day seeing the smile and the look on the couples faces when they see a hand full of images captured just moments before is simply priceless. I am incredibly lucky that I have couples who love my vision and the truth is: I absolutely love what I am doing now.

Contests & Awards 

Occasionally I am asked (mainly by other photographers) about awards – the truth is, I do not enter contests. Nothing against them or the many pay-to-join - photography associations / contests, but lets face it -  everyone is an 'international award-winning, cutting edge, super duper awesome photographer'.   

The reality: when I was working as a photojournalist a few years back, I won some of the biggest prizes in photojournalism including two 1 st Places in The Best of Photojournalism as well as a hand full of Czech Press Photos, as well as a very highly coveted Sports Photographer of the Year award. Yet the biggest prize/award  I have ever received: being told by a lovely lady who runs an orphanage in Kiev that my reportage was the reason why Americans were adopting children from her orphanage. There is no award that can ever top that.  Knowing that my work was able to make a difference in these children's lives is simply priceless and it humbles me to this day.

Wedding Planners in Prague / Prague Wedding Planning Agencies

Many Prague wedding planning agencies and Prague wedding planners will only work with vendors who pay the biggest 'commissions'. Some of the larger and more established agencies in Prague demand up to 30% commissions to be a part of their team or to be simply recommended by them. As they promise volume and foreign weddings - most photographers accept this.  As a professional, I have decided that I can no longer support this arrangement that only benefits the agencies. Some wedding planning agencies are quite unhappy about my stance and as such will not recommend me or any other photographers who have also taken this stand.

Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important investments that you will make. As such it is your decision on whom you wish to capture the most important day of your life. Leaving it up to a 3rd party whose only concern is their bottom line is never wise. So how do you know if you have chosen the best photographer for you?

As a bride & groom you should meet your photographer in person (and if that is not possible Skype is a wonderful alternative) to evaluate their professionalism, their ability to understand your needs, and more importantly - how well you hit it off. Taking the time to read reviews, view complete galleries of their work (and not just the portfolio pieces) and if needed - hire them for an engagement session to gauge how they work with you as a couple are also worthy ideas. The truth is quality photography is an investment and you should take the time to research who is best for you. And no worries, if you chose Kurt Vinion as your wedding photographer; rest assured that I will provide only the highest standard on your behalf and will happily work with these same agencies in a professional manner to ensure that everything runs smoothly and beautifully. After all when you look great - we all look great. 

Prague Wedding Photographers 

Though I am based in Prague I have photographed weddings at nearly every venue in Prague as well as many castles, chateaus located throughout the Czech Republic. Additionally, I have photographed several high profile Czech weddings (a Champions League player), a member of the Getty Family, as well as VIP's from Asia and a member of the Forbes 100 richest person list. And yes, I am still humbled at some of these unbelievable weddings I was commissioned to cover.  And no worries, if you do not wish to have your images in the public domain - I of all people can understand and respect this and there is a clause in the contract that you can opt out of.

Wedding Photographers London

As an American photographer based in Prague I have been asked many times if I would cover couples weddings in London. If we have availability myself and my team would be quite happy to speak with you about capturing your wedding day.

Destination Wedding Photographers

Being based in Prague certainly has its perks and one of those is being easy to fly to nearly every European capital within a few hours. My weddings and portrait sessions have taken place in many locations around Europe. As every couple and their needs are different please feel free to contact me about pricing and package options. And no worries, we can always arrange a time to chat over Skype as I realize how difficult it can be to meet up prior to a wedding.

Photographer Reviews

Many couples find me through Google, word of mouth, referrals as well as from several wedding planning agencies located in Asia, Japan, Korea, as well as in Italy and France.
