wedding & pre-weddings photographer I Prague I Venice I Rome I Europe I Hong Kong

My name is Kurt Vinion, I am an American photographer living in Prague who focuses on creating exceptional  weddings 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. I am not really keen on keeping up with the latest fads or photoshop gimmicks. Truth is, anyone can take a picture, but to capture the real spirit, feeling and emotions of the day is simply priceless.

In terms of style, my photography is a mixture: 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. Having worked for Getty Images and Wire Image photographing celebrities forces one to think outside of the box. The reality is -  my goal is to make you look more gorgeous than you already are and in a stylish & honest way. 

Additionally, I am sought out by couples from around Asia who demand the very best in pre wedding portrait sessions in not only Prague but throughout Europe (Paris, Venice, Rome, Santorini, Bavaria, London, Dublin and etc) I absolutely love creating and capturing these sessions as they truly are a mixture of various styles. If you wish to have a magazine styled pre-weddings portrait session or a very stylized night portrait session, with my team of professionals - we 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

Professionally I have worked as a photojournalist with The New York TimesThe Boston GlobeMother Jones, Spectrum Pictures and many magazines worldwide. I have covered assignments in: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Israel, Belarus, Russia and many countries in Europe... 

Additionally I spent 3-years photographing celebrities in Berlin for Getty Images and Wire Images after tiring of the reportage workload and yes, of the travel... Some of the 'celebrities' were interesting and those Berlin parties were fantastic (the ones I remember).  But to be honest, photographing celebrities is quite boring, tedious work, with very little creativity as celebrity imagery are so controlled & contrived...

Before moving to Europe, I was a very young, Director of Photography at The University of Louisville Athletic Dept.

In addition, I was also the event & personal photographer for  Muhammad Ali and his foundation and I feel honored to have spent so much time with Muhammad and meeting many of the greats of boxing. Being from Louisville definitely has its perks (a big shout out to Tom Cruise - we had a great laugh about his time growing up in Louisville).

I majored in Photojournalism/Fine Art at WKU one of America's top photojournalism programs well renowned for producing the very best photojournalists in the world.

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 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 (for me personally) 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.

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), as well as VIP's from Asia and 3 different families whose members are included in the Forbes 100 richest person list. And yes, I am still humbled at some of these unbelievable weddings I was commissioned to cover. Truth be told, the larger more prestigious the family or members the insane amount of work and stress. After doing this for nearly 10-years I can honestly say that the most unforgettable weddings are ones where I can spend quality time with the couples and really capture them intimately and quietly - something that is not possible at a 250 + person event.  

Destination wedding photographers

The best thing about being based in Prague is that it is a relatively easy place to travel from and as such I have been lucky enough to have captured destination weddings around Europe. Locations I have regularly worked in are: Ireland, N.Ireland, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Italy, Greece and even a wedding in Hong Kong. If you are interested in having me as your destination wedding photographer please do not hesitate to contact me as I would enjoy hearing more about your wedding day or even pre weddings photo shoot.

Wedding Planners in Prague / Prague Wedding Planning Agencies

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. 

Our Clients Privacy

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. So no worries your wedding day is just that your wedding and not a portfolio building experience.
