More about Kurt Vinion

My name is Kurt Vinion, I am an American who has spent most of my life living in Europe and I am a Prague based wedding & pre wedding photographer. I specialize in creating timeless, elegant and sophisticated pre wedding photography with a modern esthetic. I am best known for my creative approach to composition, lighting, and of course my documentary approach to each couple in capturing those special moments that define who we truly are at that moment in time.

I started photographing weddings professionally in 2008 after deciding that my time as a reportage photographer and a celebrity photographer had come to pass. Truth is my reportages are something I will always be proud of as knowing that children were adopted from orphanages in the Ukraine after couples had seen their plight is an award that can never be topped.

Speaking of awards, I have received many including some of the biggest prizes in Photojournalism such as two 1st Place awards for my magazine work (street kids in the Ukraine) and for my reportages on the rioting in Belfast. In addition to those coveted awards I have a hand full of Czech Press Awards as well as a truly coveted and competitive 'Sports Photographer of the Year'. In short, I have worked very hard at creating a body of work that will stand the test of time. Chances are when you are viewing a Getty Images book that showcases its photographers and the biggest stories of the last 20 years, you will come across my work. My work has been featured in so many magazines and publications that it would be impossible for me to list them here. My wedding photography has also been featured in quite a bit as well – something I am also quite proud of.


Pre wedding photographer in Prague 

Serving Rome, Vienna, Paris, Venice, Cesky Krumlov, Santorini, Dublin, Hong Kong and Europe. If you are looking for a true professional photographer who can create a stunning collection of images in your style and one that fits your personalities then Kurt Vinion Photography is for you. I strive to create individually stylistic images that suit your taste and personalities - after all every couple is different. Whether a more elegant portrait session in the middle of s snowstorm in Prague, or a stunning pre wedding session at the Château de Rambouillet or along the Champs Elysees in Paris, or perhaps a more laid back portrait session in front of the Roman Colosseum in Rome – I not only have the experience but the ability to create the most beautiful and striking portraits no matter the situation. As I have traveled extensively as a reportage photographer I am easily versed with getting around and knowing those quirky off beaten locations that create a visually stunning background. So rest assured that if you commission Kurt Vinion for your photography you will not be getting a photographer who only follows a very simple course that is used for every couple.


Destination Wedding

I am also well known for my destination weddings, having photographed them on both coasts of the US, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Greece, Austria, Czech Republic, Hong Kong and N. Ireland. In short, if I am available I would love to speak with you about photographing your wedding.


Photographer Reviews

Many clients have found me through Google, while others have found me through CS Luxury Brides, or many of the photo blogs or associations I have been featured in or a part of. I am always quite humbled that so many clients have now become my friends and I am always looking forward to meeting new ones and creating truly beautiful photography that will last for generations to come.


Pricing and Information 

I do have a rough guide of pricing for the various cities that I serve in Europe. Please note that it is always best to contact me with the dates and the locations of your pre wedding session. As we do have different seasons here in Europe there are times where our prices can change so the best approach is to contact us in advance so that we can pass on the savings to you. In addition, I can also provide albums from my US and Italian vendors, but for clients from the Mainland or from Hong Kong – the truth is you can save tremendous amounts of dollars by doing it yourself there. But if you wish to have a beautifully handcrafted album or one of the worlds most beautiful designer coffee table books from Queensberry or Graphi we would be happy to create one for you – after all every couple is different.


Please note that to give myself and my staff some time off we are not usually reachable on Sunday's & Monday's.
