Now Booking Weddings and Events for 2013 and Beyond!

We are in full swing for the summer wedding season and this is making future brides and grooms think about their own wedding plans. They are doing their research and starting to book their wedding vendors, including Kurt as their wedding photographer. Kurt already has several weddings and events booked for 2013 and have several more with appointments scheduled to book their wedding or event. When planning a big event like a wedding, it is always a good idea to secure your favorite wedding vendors early and by the looks of things for next year, the earlier the better. If you are still unsure or have questions, it is better to meet with your photographer to discuss these matters and Kurt's consultations are always FREE. However, Kurt cannot hold any date without a deposit and a signed contract. To check for availability and/or to schedule your FREE wedding consultation, please call Kurt at (419) 885-7153.

Meet our Senior Ambassadors!

These are our Senior Ambassadors for 2013. If you are looking for ways to save money on your Senior Portraits, ask one of our ambassadors for their rep cards. Their cards, as shown above, will entitle you to half off of your Senior Photo session fees. Each ambassador has 25 cards to pass out, so get yours early before they run out! To schedule your senior portrait session, please call Kurt at (419) 885-7153!

As you can see, some of our ambassadors come from schools that have designated yearbook photographers. For your yearbook photo, you MUST go to your school's contracted yearbook photographer. However, you DO NOT have to purchase your Senior Photos from that photographer. You can go to any professional photographer for the ones you want to buy! You also do not have to go to the same school as our ambassadors to use their rep cards for the discount! You can go to any school!

You choose the background(s) before your event. Then, while at your event, we take pictures of your guests in front of a green screen. Then, with Hollywood style GSI magic, we create an image of your guests in the background picture you chose. This is a fun and exciting way for your guests to enjoy your gathering, and can even take home a copy of the photo for a souvenir! We can also make a scrapbook from the photo booth images for the guests to sign! Check out my Kurt's Kustom Keepsakes website for more information, images from past events and pricing details.
