FAQ for our Prague pre-wedding photography portrait sessions


Smaller a la carte packages may be possible but are limited - please contact us for availability and a la carte pricing.

If you are in need of advices, accommodation recommendations and etc, we will happily supply our recommendations after you book with us.


Hair & Makeup - as we have been working in Prague since 2007 we only recommend professionally accredited hair & makeup artists who are fluent in English or are native English speakers. As our reputation is on the line every time we shoot - we work only with the best. Due to the non running of public transportation - taxi fares for the stylist (early morning shoots) are billed at cost to the client.
The makeup prep time is not included in the shooting hours. Please allow up to 2 1/2 hours for makeup and travel to the location meeting point. A hair & makeup trial can be organized independent of the hair & makeup rates and availability.


The crew - for all of our portrait sessions - it is usual for Kurt to work with 1 or 2 lighting assistants. Please note this when it comes to our travel arrangements. For locations outside of the Czech Republic Kurt will usually bring only 1 assistant to save on expenses. Hair & Makeup is usually locally sourced or one of our ladies can join us depending on availability.

Timelines, routes & locations are finalized usually 2 weeks before your arrival and will be discussed in advance during your complementary online discussions. Info is not give out until a signed contract is in.

Travel time and breaks are included in the package hours - no exceptions.


Digital File Creation - all final files are created in Capture One Pro v.11 including signature art series images. These files are roughly 3600 x 5000 pixels. Our computer systems are dual 5K monitors (IMAC & BENQ 5K professionally calibrated monitors). We use canon EOS 1dsMarkIII, 5dmarkiii, 6d and at times we also use a Mamiya RZ67 with a Phase One digital back for select sessions.


Online galleries will be created within 2 weeks of the session for you to review your collection and select the images you wish to have retouched and artistically enhanced. Close up portraits are also retouched to ensure the highest quality (teeth, eyes, skin issues, discolorations) for our ladies who
wish to have a glamour glow treatment applied we can do this after a consultation - additional fees may be required due to the amount of files chosen and work.
Once your files are ready (2-4 weeks is needed, at peak times there may be a delay) we will upload them to your drop box so that you can download them and review your images.

After your complete satisfaction we can send a flash drive that contains your collection plus all of the digital from your session. Please note, due to the many books and clients we work with it is not possible for us to drop box the entire collection due to our bandwidth.


Flash drives are 35 EUR and s&h is usually billed at costs.


RAW FILES - though we normally do not shoot raw - you can order (in advance) for a fee of 250 / 500 EUR (4 / 8 hours) for larger packages raws are capped at 600 EUR.


Booking terms are 50% to book and the remaining fees due in cash day of or you can pay 1 week in advance. we can accept PayPal for the deposit but clients are responsible for the 5% transaction fee. Clients are also responsible for any bank transfer fees.

COPYRIGHT - all files are with a shared copright release so that you can print your images as much as you like. A copyright notice and file information sheet (for your printer to ensure everything is printed correctly) is supplied with all files upon completion of your order


Wedding dresses, tuxedos, & accessories: we do not provide outfits as we feel that you should take the time to find the perfect outfit for your needs. We can recommend several on-line English speaking resources where you can rent your outfits during your visit to Prague. Please note that sizes for European woman tend to be taller and thicker. As you will wish to enjoy your time in Prague without stressing over finding the right outfit(s) it is advisable to bring your own outfits.


Transportation: as Prague has a very small city centre where we will spend most of our time, it is very easy to walk around, in fact it is far more enjoyable than sitting stuck in traffic - which is quite bad here especially with those many one way streets.


The only time we may need to use public transportation is to head up to Prague Castle. This can be easily accomplished with a taxi (10 EUR for 5-minutes) or jumping on a tram (1 EUR for 5 minutes). BTW, walking down from Prague Castle to the Charles Bridge takes about 12 minutes (we are quite experienced in timing everything here). For other locations: we will discuss the logistics of your itineraries in advance as well as any extra costs associated with traveling to your desired locations. As the pace is set by you, you can choose to take a break as you see fit - after all it is your session.


For our VIP clients who wish to be chauffeured around we can arrange a personal S-Class Mercedes as well as a van for the crew - billed at cost.


Travel to outside the city centre. We do provide photography in other locations such as Cesky Krumlov, Castle Hluboka, Kutna Hora as well as others. Pricing for travel and the crews time will be discussed and agreed upon in writing.


Boat rentals, horse and carriage rides as well as Old Timers (vintage cars) rentals are billed at cost. Many of the gardens in Prague charge 'wedding photography' or 'commercial photography' admittance fees. These fees are billed at costs to the clients.


Rain policies: due to the high costs of the staff and the likelihood of us being booked the next day, we usually can not postpone the session for bad weather. Since 2007, we have had only 2 cancellations due to inclement weather. Thankfully we were able to move the session to the next day and the only fees incurred were for the hair & makeup as well as the crews time.


Booking policies: we require a signed contract and a 50% retainer to guarantee your date with us. The remaining fee(s) are due on the day of otherwise a late fee will accrue until payment in full is received.


Complementary consultation prior to your session. It is always preferable to meet up before your session to not only discuss everything but to get to know each other better to create a more personalized session. Due to the high volume that we experience at times and or our travel, a complimentary consultation may not be possible. In this case, we will arrange a Skype chat (or WhatsAp) to discuss everything online before your arrival.


Routes, itineraries and additional information about your hair & makeup artist are not given out until we have receive a signed contract and your deposit.


Extra hours are priced at 200-225 EUR depending on the package and crew size
Personal assistants for carrying your garment bags and etc are priced at 50 EUR per 4 hours - please note that the photographer and or his assistants are NOT responsible for carrying your clothes or pulling your suitcases.


Entrance fees / photo permit fees are covered by the client


Video Services - we do work closely with several video crews and would happily recommend them to you


Drone Photography - it is not possible to have drone footage captured in the city centre of Prague.

Additional information to ensure that you have a successful pre-wedding session in Prague!

How do you know if we are another photographer is right for you?
When choosing your photographer it is important to take into consideration many aspects to ensure that you are investing wisely.
Before hiring your photographer you should always ask:
is the photographer skilled at lighting and getting the most out of any situation? Is skin retouching and or lightening included in your package? Is the hair & makeup artist certified? Does your hair & makeup artist attend to your needs during the entire session or must you stop and go back to your hotel loosing valuable time if there is a problem with your hair or makeup? Does your photographer have back up equipment / work with a crew? Does your photographer know the city? And finally how well do you communicate with your photographer?
Your photographer should stand behind their work and when requested they should provide you with sample galleries from several couples where you see the entire collection of images captured during the session and not just the few portfolio pieces.
Long after your experiences from Prague fade into distant memories, the only thing you will have left are your images - images that should not only show how gorgeous you two look but more importantly how you two felt at that wonderful moment frozen in time.

Professionally captured and created images are truly priceless and as such - family heirlooms to be cherished for generations to come.
