What do our wedding couples say?
Kurty is absolutely incredible! He was understanding, flexible and professional right from our first interaction. He went above and beyond and stopped at nothing until he had the perfect shot. He even stood on the roof of our venue to get the perfect angle during our ceremony. To this day all of our guests comment on the incredible pictures Kurty took. You will be in excellent hands if you go with Kurty photography.

I had the chance recently to work with Kurty on my wedding. Kurty was always quick to reply to my questions over email and made time over the weekend to meet with us to discuss what we want for the wedding photos. On the day of he arrived early and did not waste any time and took photos of anything he thinks we would enjoy of the location and the settings. He was able to capture all the moments in the wedding and even reminded us at the end that we have not taken photos with just the two of us. He worked with whatever request we have. Most importantly the photo turned out great! He even have a lot of shots of me looking good, which is no small feat. Would recommend to anyone looking for a photographer that is easy to communicate, professional, and able to capture the special day perfectly.

Throwing out another recommendation - if you are looking for professional photographer with above average quality Kurty is your guy. He does amazing weddings, family photos, modeling shots,corporate head shots, events and so much more. The quality is amazing, the service is amazing, his talent is amazing. No joke - check it out if you have need or interest and refer to friend/family if they have need / interest. Thanks. Check out site -
right dana - I fell in love with him after seeing your wedding pics! Actually I know a few people who used him for their weddings so when Jason proposed I said, we have to get married on a day Kurty is available. LOL. I picked my wedding date around my photographers schedule because he is that good. xoxo

Wow.. ! my friend, those are just awesome images you put together of our wedding in that slide show. Paula and I liked
them so much, we had to wake up again early this morning, to watch it a bunch more times before she headed off to
work. (!)

So yea, having you as our photographer was a blast, and not only the quality of images shows that, but also, just
how you integrated yourself into our wedding celebration with every body else.  It was obvious in the reactions of
our friends and family in the photos, that they were having a great time, and quite comfortable with you.

So thanks again, Kurty.  We’re so happy we chose you as our guy.
- Paula and Paul

Kurty and his team were amazing! We were thrilled with both our wedding album and the whole experience and have eagerly recommended them to other brides. My sister just recently used Kurty Photography for her wedding, as well, and our whole family was excited to work with them again!
- Kathryn & Alex

We highly recommend Kurty and his photography services! We had a beautiful setting, a beautiful day and beautiful wedding, and he captured it all. He was extremely professional and responsive. He captured great candid shots throughout the day to document all that was going on, but also made wonderful suggestions on shots that he wanted to set up. I appreciate how he was also able to capture the attention of the kids who were in the pictures too. He did an amazing job on the wedding highlights slideshow as well.
- Tina & Richard

Kurty was wonderful, and captured the most beautiful wedding pictures for us. Each time I look back at those pictures, it feels like I'm reliving the day again. I couldn't have thought of anyone else that we would have hired to capture our day.
- Bi & Jimmy

Friendly and very easy to work with. He has great ideas that bring out the best in photos and your personality. An absolute pleasure and blessing to work with. Did a fantastic job on my wedding; would definitely recommend to any of my friends and family.
-Stephanie & Seth

Kurty Photography was amazing from start to finish! We met Kurty at his amazing studio in SF and fell in love with his work. He was a breeze to work with and so much fun. He worked so well with my videographer and got so many great shots. The photos turned out so beautifully and I was so happy with the experience.
- Marissa & Phillip

Kurty photographed out Wedding on September 7th, 2013, and we were incredibly pleased with the results. Kurty was easy to deal with, and easy to keep in touch with up to and after the wedding. He was on time, and professional, and had a great energy about him.

I loved that we had the traditional "posed" photos, and then Kurty slipped into the background and got some wonderful candid shots our our reception, and the ceremony too. The whole day was captured beautifully.

Also I appreciated that we had the option to purchase a package of just the digital images, or everything up to and including the album and prints, with no pressure one way or the other from Kurty.   We chose the digital package.  And, he made a short 3 min video of some of the pics, that he posted on the website for all to see, which made for easy viewing for folks who didn't need to see ALL of the digital pics :)

Overall I highly recommend Kurty. His prices are reasonable, his service is professional, and he is a genuinely nice guy and was fun to have with us at our wedding.

Thanks so much Kurty!!!!

Hi Kurty,
Thank you very much for the photos, they are beautiful. I am glad that I found you. The whole process was simple, communication was great, you were very accommodating on the day and your work is extraordinary. Lam and I had so much fun taking pictures. We will cherish these memories forever.
- Ann & Lam

Kurty was amazing at our City Hall wedding last week. We were two brides and he was warm and welcoming. We felt completely comfortable with him and he took great photos! We got pictures at City Hall and Bakers Beach. They turned out great and incorporated a variety of portraits, posed, and candid. I would definitely recommend him! Plus, you can't beat the price compared to other photographers found on YELP and online in the area.
- Amy and Mandy

Get Kurty for your wedding!!! He is an amazing photographer.
I really love San Francisco City hall and I want to have my ceremony over there. I found Kurty as one of their preferred vendors. So I went to his website to checkout his work. A picture is worth a thousand words, if you see Kurty's slide show, it worth a million words! His pictures are beautiful, the story line is great, and music is amazing. I fell in love with all the slide shows on his website, I watched them all. After my fiance (now husband) and I meet with Kurty, we decide to book him for our wedding.

This is a summary for Kurty's work after working with him:
1. He is very friend and funny. He is so easy to work with. He calms the nervous
  couple and give suggestion on how to pose for photos
2. He is VERY, VERY, VERY professional.
  He takes his job seriously. He show up on time (even before the meet time).
  He response his email quickly.
  He is willing to work with our schedule to make sure everything goes smoothly.
  He even skip his meal during our reception just want to make sure that he take    
  beautiful pictures for our event.
3. He is very talent. He takes beautiful pictures.
4. He is creative. He is not only take beautiful pictures, he also create a beautiful
  slide show for you. I shared the slide show with my relatives that can't attend my
  wedding, they all love his work. Go checkout his wedding gallery on his website. All
  the slide shows are just amazing.

Kurty, thank you for all your hard work. You are a talent photographer and we are very lucky to find you to capture one of the most memorable day of our lives.
- Joyce & Ki

Thank you so much for the awesome experience that you helped to create on our wedding day. The photographs that you captured were amazing! Each time that we share them with friends and family they can’t say enough about how terrific they are. You truly told the long awaited story of our wedding through your photography. You made us both feel at ease and helped to create an experience that we will never forget. You are a true talent and a true professional. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and to work with you.
- Jason and Robert

Dearest Kurty,

There are not enough words to express how grateful I am for Sheila's and Brendon's beautiful wedding album. From the first day that Sheila and I met you, we knew that you were a perfect fit for this special day. Your skills and personal qualities during the year of preparations for our wedding were always very professional! You listened and interpreted our needs and kept us well organized. Your creativeness and good eye for a perfect picture no matter what was going on around you are shown throughout the album. Your motivation and determination along with your excellent technical and photographic skills are also evident with the amount of pictures that were taken.

Every time I viewed the wedding album I am reminded of all the time and energy that went into making this wedding such a perfect day for Sheila and Brendon. Knowing that you were a part of this day is something very special to me, and I will always be grateful to you for contributing in the making of their dreams come true.

Also, I would like to thank your assistant for his professionalism, motivation, determination and creativeness in capturing Brendon with his groomsmen and parents. These are also pictures that will be cherished throughout the years.
- Sheila and Brendon's mother

We had the pleasure of working with Kurty and we absolutely loved his work. He was so great to work with and he exceeded our expectations. Kurty  possesses a rare blend of artistic vision, people skills, and professionalism.

We hired Kurty to shoot our engagement and wedding at Mountain Winery in Saratoga on May 3rd 2013. The experience was amazing and our pictures are breath taking. We  love his passion and love for photography that really shows in all of our photos. He is fun to work with, and a fantastic photographer with a very creative eye and ability to capture the unique beauty of an event, couple, or person!  Our special day will forever be documented with pictures he captured that tell a beautiful story and we will treasure them forever.

His work it's nothing short of exceptional. I can't recommend him enough!! Thanks Kurty!
- Nazanin and Mehrdad Amiri

We hired Kurty to shoot our wedding in San Francisco on a recommendation from friends, and he did an unbelievable job of capturing the day. He and his team had us covered really well and he had us set up for so many great shots! We had a huge gallery of great pictures to choose from for our wedding album, and the finished product completely blew us away. Such great quality and Kurty has a great eye for photo editing and for piecing together pictures in a very artful way that tells a story. I would highly recommend Kurty for capturing the best moments at any kind of event.
- Crystal and Dan

Zac and I and our families absolutely love the photos. The one of us in front of the fire place is Zac's favorite, I like the one of us outside city hall where's he's dipping me in front of the truck :) They're all amazing though, thank you again!

For those of you looking for excellent photography.... Kurty Photography is it!!!! Our family could not be any happier. Kurty Photography was a pleasure to work with prior to contract and on the wedding day. In fact, we were so pleased with the entire outcome that we continue to use Kurty Photography for additional photo shoots today (maternity, baby, family shoots). The pictures are so creative, which is something we were looking for. Our pictures really stand out. Not to mention that our wedding video and album are awesome. Truly one of a kind!

Kurty and Michael were energetic and creative    posted 7/3/2011

Kurty is an amazing photographer. He captured every shot that we could ever want and MORE! I definitely recommend him and his team! He got our pictures back to us fast and with every package he includes a slideshow which is perfect for family and friends!
Michelle and Michael

Kurty really knew how to make our families smile at our wedding. He knew how to be at the right places at the right times. The resulting quality of his work was no exception, either. A photographer who captures everything you are!

My family in Japan, who weren't at the wedding, were all awestruck with your creative style and seeing the whole story of the day. My grandma said she watched it three times in a row. I did recommended you to all of my co-workers along with my email with the slideshow actually. :)
- Aiko and Courtland

We LOVED Kurty! Both my husband and I have a very goofy side and Kurty did a fantastic job of capturing our silliness while maintaining beauty, elegance, and magnificence in all of our wedding photos. He has an eye for detail and creativity you can't find anywhere else! His selection process for photos is easy, but the best part of it all is... the album. There has not been a single person that has looked at our album without gasping from sheer amazement at how spectacular it is. Enjoy Kurty Photography, they are a rare find!
- Alexis and Aidan

My friend recommended me to Kurty Photography. There is something about Kurty that makes you love him from the beginning. Whether putting you at ease if you're not photogenic (such as myself), or humoring my fiance in still-art poses. He's practical and has a true photographers eye, taking the real moments in life, and capturing them with appreciation. My family thought he was great right away. It was a pleasure working with him on our engagement shoot, and wedding! Kurty always responds quickly to questions and concerns. I knew photography was one thing I didn't have to worry about on my wedding day!
- Monica and Kyle

Russell and I wanted to write and thank you and Jonathan for all of your hardwork. We had such a wonderful time with you.
We were also very impressed with the slideshow montage you created.
I tried so hard not to cry during my ceremony but I couldn't hold back when I saw the slideshow during the banquet. Thanks for capturing all the precious memories. We can't thank you enough.
Thank you so much for everything!
- Ivy & Russell

I'm writing to thank you for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. Olaf and I are so happy to have such a complete and moving record of our wedding day. It was both a relief and a joy to see how well the pictures turned out - and we will certainly continue to enjoy them for years to come.

The more I look at the pictures, the more I realize what an amazing job you did of documenting our wedding day. We put a lot of time, energy, and love into creating our wedding ceremony and celebration and having the details captured so beautifully, is for us absolutely priceless. We're very grateful. Thank you again!
- Linda and Kyle

We love the wedding album - it is definitely worth the wait! Thank you so much for capturing every special moments on our wedding day. We could not ask for a more professional and talented photographer. You are certainly gifted. Every time we flip through the pages, we will re-live our special day!
- Victoria and Olaf

Thank you so much for being our photographer, you did such a great job!  Not only were the pictures in the slideshow fantastic, but you were fun, professional and just an awesome person to have there on our special day. Is there anywhere that we can leave you positive feedback, like on Yelp or any other websites that you follow?  THANKS!!!  I was also wondering if you would be able to email me the slideshow that you played at our wedding?  Charles and I are going to Taiwan next week to have another reception there for his family in Taipei and we would love to show it to them.

Thanks again for everything!
- Melissa and Charles

Kurty Photography is the best! Kurty himself was already booked for my wedding day so we used his assistant Michael. He was fantastic, fun to work with, and a very talented photographer. I am so thrilled with my wedding photos and would recommend this studio to anyone! Give them a won't be disappointed!!!!
- Melisa and Erik

Kurt is hands down the BEST photographer with the creative eye that you want at your wedding or event etc. We used Kurty 6 years ago and we've been still hearing from people how beautiful out pictures turned out.

Kurt is also a SUPER nice guy who knows how to capture the moment and suggest different poses.  He books fast so you need to call him asap or choose one of his other counterparts.  He may not be the cheapest but definately not the most expensive. You will LOVE having your memories captured by him.  

Oh, now we are bringing our 6 month old to him for baby pictures and family pictures...
- Christina & Ray

Thank you for taking our wedding pictures. We, including our families and friends, love the pictures you posted on the web (proofs). We want to also thank you for always there to answer our questions and help us all the way through the wedding day.
-- Becky & Kenny

We just got our album yesterday. It was just so beautiful and it confirms the wonderful quality of work that comes out of your studio. Rest assured I will highly recommend you and your team for friends and family weddings.
