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 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 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 is an artist and professional, not "just" a photographer. In addition to the pictures that were taken by Kurt, my guests and I were able to enjoy a fantastic photo booth that was managed by friendly members of his team. I would highly recommend Kurt Nielsen Photography to any bride or groom, no matter the age of the participants or the size of the guest list. Kurt was somehow everywhere to capture the once in a lifetime moments yet he was no where. I don't recall seeing him around. Amazing. The photos are absolutely breathtaking.
Kurt and his staff are amazing. We have used them for everything from family photos, engagement pictures, and wedding pictures. He has a love for his job that is evident through in his beautiful photographs. Thank you for always doing such an amazing job!
Kurt is awesome! We were so behind with planning, and he was so helpful and made everything so easy. Our pictures came out beautiful and everyone loved the DVD slideshow he prepared for us. We highly recommend Kurt!
The Best there is! He was there the whole day and got everything captured. He was well prepared for everything and made for an easy stress free wedding day. I can't say enough good things. Also the photobooth was a huge hit!
The was great! Good personality and easy to talk to. He got all the shots we wanted and more!
Kurt is an amazing photographer. When we first met him we realized how much he loves what he does. We didn't even visit with any other photographers, we chose him the same day and we were not disappointed. He had great ideas regarding our engagement photos, and how we could include my son. It was great because we chose a package that included our engagement photos, a photo booth at the wedding and the wedding photos. He was at our venue all day to get photos of each detail of our special day. We even got a SD card with photos set to music as well as dvds with all our photos to print. If you want amazing photographer, we would definitely choose him all over again.
Highly professional , very creative , easy to work with and cost effective . The pictures are gorgeous !!
Kurt is amazing! Not only as a photagrapher, but as a person. I was so appreciative of everything he helped us out with. Not only suggestions for pictures, but the extra things he did to make our day move seamless. We were so blessed to have him share our special day with us. He definitely helped us make it an epic, memorable day. If anyone is undecided about a photographer I 100% recommend Kurt and his crew. Thank you so much.
Kurt was absolutely the best! He made our wedding so much less stressful then I thought it would be! I would highly recommend him for any one getting married. And the guests loved loved loved the photobooth. It was such a great keepsake to have the night of the wedding to look at and laugh! It was perfect! Thanks Kurt!
Kurt was the best. So very attentive and took so many pictures. We got married out of town and he was with us from beginning to end.
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 more than willing to accommodate our requests with taking bridal and groom getting ready pictures. 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. A nice highlight of the package we chose was receiving extra DVDs that we were able to give to our families so they could enjoy the pictures as well and watch the photo slideshow whenever they wanted. I highly recommend Kurt for your engagement and wedding photo needs!
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 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.

Kurt was beyond words and did an incredible job with our wedding photos. His communication was excellent, he was on time, and I never had a doubt that he knew what we were looking for in our photos. He truly made our wedding day special and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. If you are looking for your photographer, look no further than Kurt Nielsen.
I have been going to Kurt for years for everything from family photos to senior pics and now our wedding! Kurt was all over at the wedding ceremony and reception hall, he even came to the salon the morning of the wedding to get pictures of the girls getting ready! I swear I never once saw him standing still! Kurt is a fantastic photographer. I would recommend him to anyone for ANY service!!
Kurt is an awesome photographer! Our engagement pictures turned out beautiful! I can not wait for my wedding. I get Kurt for the whole day and the green screen photo booth!! You will not be disappointed.
He is really good and we love are pictures and pictures CD!!!!!!!!
Kurt does an amazing job and you can tell he is so compassionate about what he does, he pours his heart and soul into it. He alone got more pictures on our wedding day than I have seen a group of 2-3 photographers get. He has great ideas and poses to capture that perfect shot! We, along with our family and friends, were more than impressed with our wedding photos. We even just had Kurt do a mini photo session for our 1 year anniversary! He met on his only day off and spent almost two hours working with us. He really is the best!!!
Kurt went above and beyond what we were expecting for our wedding day photos! The day of, he kept things rolling along on time, kept the bridal party in line with where they needed to be in the pictures (which was a challenge with our large group) and did it all with a smile despite it being a hot day in August. He was very personable and stuck around for almost the entire reception making sure he didn't miss any special moments. We absolutely loved our photos! Thanks Kurt for capturing our big day and the memories we have to last a lifetime! -Heather & Josh
Kurt did a fabulous job with our wedding photos! The day of, he was so professional and great about keeping things rolling along, getting everyone in there places (which was a challenge with our larger wedding party) and smiling along the way. Thanks so much for the lasting memories of our special day! -Heather & Josh
We used Kurt for our engagement session as well as our wedding photographer on 9/6/14 and all I can say is AMAZING! He did a fabulous job with capturing great memories and wonderful photos. Our family and friends absolutely loved him as he was very engaged in his work at getting people together for photos and laughs. He even came out with us afterwards to capture a few pictures at a bar! I highly recommend him for all future bride and grooms as he definitely helped make our special day unforgettable.
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 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!
Kurt Is Fantastic. He did both our engagement photos and our wedding. He is fun but not intrusive and everyone loved his photos!
Above expectations!Reviewed on 10/24/2014 Dan S
It was great working with Kurt for our wedding. I was referred to him by a photographer friend that I've known for many years. Our wedding preparation became quite difficult as my wife had gotten a job in Columbus and we moved there from Toledo just 5 weeks before the wedding. I met with Kurt and hired him while my wife was not able to meet with him due to her new job. Kurt was very accomodating to us, meeting her on a day when he normally does not have office hours. The wedding day, we allowed Kurt to take control to ensure he captured the day. He was outstanding in both directing us, family, and friends for photos. Your wedding day becomes a blur of activity, but the photos are what you have left to provide memories. I would highly recommend Kurt Nielsen Photography for any event.
