The first experience we had with Kurt was at a friends wedding. I saw the hustle and determination to capture every moment he could at their wedding and as an observer, I was impressed. About 2 years later, when we started planning our own wedding, he was suggested to us by... Read More that same couple. So we checked him out at the Bridal show. Honestly, we were sold from the moment we met him. My, then fiance, is a hard guy to please from the beginning. Yet, after our first sit down meeting, he didn't want to shop any other options. With every subsequent meeting, we felt like we picked the right photographer. As part of our package, we were able to get our engagement photos done with him. We went on location to Wildwood MetroPark. They turned out amazing! Fast forward to our wedding day. Kurt was everywhere! I really wanted to also have a videographer, but as brides well know, you may have to make some important sacrifices. When we received our pictures, he had taken so many photos that we definitely don't regret not also having video. The one thing I'm extremely happy we were able to have as part of our package was the photobooth. One of the things we heard about all night from our guests that night was how much they loved the photobooth! The photobooth had a couple of attendants all night long. The guests were able to take pictures with props and instantly get a print out to take home as a keepsake. They also were able to sign a picture guestbook too. Later that night, it was great to be able to see such happy photos and well wishes the same day. If you're considering a photobooth, you should add it on when you pick Kurt. I think it's safe to say, that when we need a photographer in the future, we're looking to Kurt Nielsen Photography first. Thanks Kurt, for an AMAZING job well done.

While attending "I Do at the Zoo" in 2015, I briefly spoke with Kurt and received a flyer with his prices and packages listed. His packages and prices caught our attention, we knew we wanted a photo booth and he has a better option! My husband and I chose Kurt as our wedding... Read More photographer for many reasons, some which include price, comfort level with Kurt when we met him and in his studio, willingness to meet at different locations, and capture our entire wedding day, from early morning at the salon until the end of the reception! We had a baseball themed wedding that took place at Fifth Third Field, in Toledo, OH, and Kurt was with us every step of the way! He did so much running around and back and forth between rooms and floors, making sure to capture every moment he could and all of the essential ones! I remember him saying at one point he had so many steps in his day already, it had never been that high so early in the day!! Another huge draw for us was the option to use his green screen photo booth, something we really wanted. We were able to pick and create our own back drops, and Kurt went out of his way to contact the Mud Hens directly himself to get the approval to use their copyrighted images. The green screen can fit many, many people. I want to say maybe even 25!!! Everyone in the picture gets a copy as well as the bride and groom, I highly recommend this option!! It doubles as a gift your guests can take home too. Pictures are memories that have forever been captured! I highly recommend Kurt and his staff. My husband and I have been so happy with the work Kurt has done for us, we have taken our 16 month old daughter to him a few times for her photo ops as well! He's great with babies and large groups, Kurt Nielsen is your guy!

Kurt and his team were amazing. My husband and I got married this past July. Kurt captured moments at my wedding and reception that I could not have imagined.

Kurt did a great job with our engagement and wedding photos. The pictures are crisp and clear; none look washed out. The poses were perfect, timeless and elegant. I will have no regrets with the photos years from now or think that's a weird pose- why did I do that. Kurt was...

Kurt's photography equipment was very professional and I didn't have to worry about what type of camera was being used or if the lighting would be an issue.

Kurt is an amazing photographer with a rare ability to capture not only a moment in time, but your personality as well. He provided our engagement and wedding photos and must be the hardest working photographer in the business. He put in the time before, during and after the... Read More event to give us the best possible service. The stats/facts: Over 12 h of time on the wedding day at FIVE different locations, over 1400 photos taken, a dvd photo-montage lasting over an hour, a tireless and friendly staff providing exceptional and fun service in the green screen photo-booth and a truly personal touch. The result: An incredible photo documentary of our wedding day that we can relive with all of the fondest memories preserved. There was not a single important moment that is not covered. Kurt is an amazing talent (although he may have you contort into positions that seem awkward at the time but turn out incredibly well) and a fun, good guy. My wife and I have no reservations recommending him for all of your special photo needs. We will use him again whether it is for our children's senior pics, holiday/family pics, anniversary pics or any occasion that requires an authentic rendering of our most important moments in life.

We had Kurt be the photographer for our wedding back in June and it was a nasty day but Kurt did an amazing job! Kurt was on time (actually early!) and was able to travel to our venue an hour away from Toledo with no issues. Kurt was good with the kids in our wedding (ages 5,4... Read More and 3) but they got a little tired when finishing pictures after the ceremony (which was around 4). He took it all with stride and we were able to get them done with relative ease. I love our ceremony photos but some of the best photos were the candid ones from the reception. Kurt blended in really well with everyone and was very thorough with all of the pictures he was able to capture. Kurt began his day with us around 1130am and didn't leave the reception until 1030 and he was upbeat the whole time. I highly recommend Kurt as a photographer for weddings and engagement photos!
