Matous Barta photographs weddings for engaged couples in Czech Republic and Prague.

My name is Matouš Bárta and I’m a wedding photographer. I have not been one ever since and I did not dream of becoming one when I was six. Nor did dream of becoming a dustman. The future lay ahead of me in the great unknown, and it was the right way. My dear father, just like almost everyone at that time, used to take and develop photographs in our bathroom. For me this ritual was an inseparable part of my childhood. Sometimes I would join my father in the red dusk and watch pictures appear under the magnifier, which used to belong to my grandfather. My dad used a Zenit E – it was light sealed with carpet tape and it had to be rewind with surgical precision in order to avoid breaking the film. I used to use the very same Zenit when I started taking pictures myself at the age of fifteen with the plan to study Photography in Brno and much earlier than that I have begun observing the world around me. Now I’m twice as old, married to a great, loving wife and have two children and two cats. And I make a living as a professional photographer. To me that was something absolutely inconceivable fifteen years ago. While at school, I read a lot and attempted writing short stories. I never, however, got in it deep enough so that I would be happy with the result. Only later I found out that I do not have to be a writer in order to tell stories. All those skills that I missed while writing, I already possessed. Just in a slightly different area. Just like one can master a foreign language by learning to think in it, in the same way, through all those years I’ve been looking at and perceiving images that surrounded me, I also learned to see the world in pictures. The composition, the timing, the structure of the photography reaches me somehow subconsciously. Every wedding is different and has its unique story to tell. Every place has its own spirit and every human being changes and spices up the atmosphere with their presence. When shooting, my mind is completely clear. I don’t know what will happen and what the location will look like, all I know that I'm in there, I’m a part of it and I shall catch it in the photos. The photos, despite being still and mute, (and perhaps because of that) have the ability to capture the atmosphere and story in a completely unique way. Where I am today is the result of my life journey. The fact that you are getting married is the result of yours. I will be delighted to put into practice all I have learned in my journey in order to tell your unique story. [Prague Wedding Photographer]

Czech Republic Wedding Photography by Kurt Vinion, a Prague Photographer..

On most weekends you can find Kurt capturing weddings and portrait sessions for discerning clients from around the world. His clean, sleek style is a combination of his award-winning photojournalism background and his ability to see and use light in a creative, artistic way. Kurt's approach: to capture artistically and creatively how you two felt during those very special moments in time. Though based in Prague, Kurt regularly works in Italy and was chosen as the wedding photographer for the Getty wedding in Rome as well as a member of President Harmid Karzai's family during their wedding in Italy. In addition to various VIP weddings, Kurt was also the chosen photographer for no less than 6 professional wedding photographers from the US, UK, Ireland and Spain. Though he enjoys the large weddings, Kurt is actively pursing couples who desire to have an intimate experience where in addition to having their weddings captured, they also have a day and or night time portrait session to create a body of work that will both impress and wow their family & friends. This type of session (reportage and a mixture of art directed night time portraits) is not for everyone but for those who invest in this style – they are never let down. Kurt Vinion is a 2 x 1st Place winner in The Best of Photojournalism for his magazine & news reporting. He has also won many other international prizes for his reportage & documentary work but is now focusing on capturing weddings & portraits. His work has been exhibited internationally in New York City, London, Prague and his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. [Prague Wedding Photographer]

Show Shutter Wedding Day Photography - Groom dancing at the wedding reception with some blur
Dragging the shutter is a basic photographic technique that is often put to highly creative use by the best wedding photojournalists. Whether depicting the bride mid-whir during a dance, or documenting a child bounding down the aisle at the church, dragging the shutter helps produce images that contain a sense of motion and bring an added dose of festivity to what, for some, already feels like a whirlwind day. When photographers “drag” the shutter by slowing down its speed, they...Read more

A wedding is a special event for all involved, and children are no exception. With little boys suiting up in tuxedos and young girls stepping into gowns layered in satin and lace, it’s a milestone for your smallest guests as well. It’s that rare occasion when they receive a glimpse into the adult world in all its ceremonial splendor. But in the thick of wedding planning, many brides and grooms often forget the little ones. Well, you need not be one of the forgetful. With a bit of...Read more
Wedding Photojournalism - Groomsmen take a car to a mechanic to change a tire in this photo taken by an award-winning wedding photojournalist.
Many WPJA members can trace their roots to the news profession in some way, having shot everything from small-town stories to significant historical events that have led to Pulitzer Prizes. Likewise, many have felt the adrenaline rush that news photojournalists get from bagging the winning touchdown catch, documenting heart-wrenching tragedies and being on the front lines of history. There’s also the gratification of getting published with a byline in a major publication, and the mass-...Read more
Wedding Photography of Parents - ceremony image showing the handover by the father of the bride to the groom
In the 1950 classic film Father of the Bride , George, played by Spenser Tracy, watches his daughter Annie, played by Elizabeth Taylor, take her wedding vows and says to himself, “I realized at that moment that I was never going to come home again and see Annie at the top of the stairs. Never going to see her again at our breakfast table in her nightgown and socks...Annie was all grown up and leaving us, and something inside began to hurt.” The scene may be fiction, but the emotion behind it is...Read more
Wedding Photography of Busy Getting Ready Scene | Image of the groom enjoying himself as the bride, her bridesmaids, and her mom try to get her bustled for the cocktail hour
A wedding is not just the culmination of a couple’s commitment. It’s also the final product of much planning and preparation. Yet despite the best-laid plans, your big day won’t necessarily get a free pass from Murphy’s Law. Some chaos is almost inevitable at some point along the way. Luckily, when you hire a wedding photojournalist, you have someone on hand who is an expert in capturing those moments as memorable visual stories that you’ll enjoy for years to come. Some of our own WPJA members...Read more
Sideline story photography at the wedding reception showing ladies drinking gin from tea cups
Some wedding photographers may feel the need to include the bride or groom in every picture, but those photos convey only part of the day's record. Most WPJA members will probably tell you that you're not fully documenting the event unless you get out there on the periphery and record the subplots of the wedding day—the unique and intersecting stories of the guests as they enjoy the festivities. We call these types of pictures “sideline shots,” and they are distinct from the standard reaction...Read more

You are an excellent photographer and we are very happy that you was with us on our wedding day. During the pre-wedding shoot, we got to know you and your style of work better. You are very subtle in your way of working and your photos capture the atmosphere perfectly. On our wedding day, you captured details and moments we would have easily missed. On this very hectic day, you were really calm and supportive. Your photos are unique, authentic and capture the atmosphere really well. Looking through them always brings us back to that day. Anne and Karol
