We just got back from picking up our wedding photos and couldn't be more happy! His package included our engagement photos, all day for our wedding, a photo booth, all printing rights to all photos, and a slideshow. Kurt is easy to talk to and definitely made us feel... Read More comfortable. It was a little muddy the day we took our engagement photos but he was prepared with a towel to sit on. He did a great job of getting posed and kandid photos at the wedding. He didn't get in our way and we didn't even realize he took several of the photos that he did. I was so happy we choose him since we didn't get a videographer because he was there from when we arrived at the salon in the morning until the DJ stopped at the end of the night. The guests loved the photo booth and he provided an abundance of props . His pricing is also very reasonable. I would highly recommend him. We will definitely be using him for any future professional photos we have done.

Kurt was amazing every time we met with him. I first fell in love with his photo booth and how cool it was. You get 4 by 6 prints and get to pick the backgrounds. I then went to a bridal show in 2015 and we signed with him right away. He works so hard every time he meets with... Read More you. He explains that his job is to capture your wedding day and wow he really did. A lot of my guests made comments about how hard he worked that day and how amazing the photo booth was. When we got our photos and the dvd of all our photos to music; we were speechless. The photos were amazing. If you tell him what you want he does it. He is very easy to work with. We forgot to get our thank you picture and he was already in his van talking to us and I told him and he got out and took a few at midnight that night and he had been there since 10:30am. I would recommend him to everyone. His time and photos are worth what you pay for them and my package included engagement photos too. We really liked all the pictures there wasn’t one we didn’t like. He got more than 1000 pictures on our wedding day. When you have him as a photographer you don’t need a videographer or a second photographer. He does it all on his own. His staff that worked the photo booth were awesome too they had fun with my guest and made the photo booth more fun. We got our photo book from the photo booth with everyone’s pictures in it that night;) It was a night to remember and we have all these photos to look back at and remember it by;) We will definitely go to Kurt when we need photos taken ;) Thank you to Kurt and his staff for capturing our day.

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!

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.

Kurt Nielsen

Hello and Congrats on your Engagement! Thank You for checking me out here on The Knot. I think you will find that I'm fun, flexible, laid back and yet a bit of a perfectionist with my craft. I'm always professional and willing to strike up a conversation with anyone so they are comfortable and more natural looking in their photos. My wheels are always turning and I don't like to sit. I'd rather be early than late and tend to do more than what is expected of me. OK, a lot more! What can I say, I love helping people, especially when it comes to special occasions like weddings.
