A tear rolled down Lar’s face as the love of his life, his partner and his bride walked down the aisle towards him. As Christiane reached him, he gently took her hand, raised it to his face and sweetly kissed it as tears formed in her eyes. As they proudly turned to face the altar the joy on their faces shone like stars in the night sky.

'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.
On the day of, he was great, never demanding but always guiding us. He is a pleasure to have around on a wedding day! He certainly went above and beyond for us, agreeing to come out onto the streets of the city in the rain. 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 around lovely guy.'
— Sam (United Kingdom)
'When I remember my wedding day there is no doubt that the best choice was the photographer!
To see someone enjoying their work, it’s pleasant. But when this person is so good at what he does then it’s just beautiful.
Nature did its part, we had non stop rainy days and the sun came out exactly for the photo shoot. And surprisingly with a rainbow at the end.
Thanks to Kurt we will be able to keep this memory forever. It was really an honor that you could take our pictures.
For all the future brides, Kurt is a MUST for your wedding. He has a charming personality, clearly lots of experience, is very creative and he travels for weddings! For us, we were very lucky to have him on our wedding day.
