Photography by Christopher Kuras – Welcome!
My work, my mission
As a native of Poland, I earned my photography degree from a college in Krosno over 20 years ago, but my adventure with photography began long before when I was only 16 years old. I learned early on that moments are irreversible so you not only have to be quick on your feet, but with your fingers as well, when capturing fleeting, precious moments. I have been fortunate enough to travel all throughout Europe, from shooting engagements in Paris, to models in Rome, to newborns in Amsterdam, to families in London, to family portraits in Dublin, to products in Prague. That’s the perk of being a photographer: there are moments being made in every corner of the world, just waiting to be captured on lens. So you may be wondering, what drove me to leave behind a prospering career and my growing studio in Europe to move to the USA. One word: love. I fell hard and fast. And it was totally worth it! I am now married to Monika (“the reason”) whom I moved around the world for and have two precious children with her. She’s not only my partner in life but also my partner in crime, as she is my second photographer, with a keen eye for details. Ultimately, what I look for in every shoot is not so much the smile on the camera, but the smile on customers’ faces off camera. The smile as they are reviewing their photos that were captured just minutes or days ago — THAT is what drives me every single shoot.
Monika is our second photographer and the first person with whom you will have contact. She will be involved in my calling/emailing and consulting on your plans throughout the wedding day, as well as figuring out your needs. While photo shooting as a second photographer, she brings her unique outlook and photography centered eye to her work, while enhancing your portfolio with different visual perspectives. Most importantly, she will be doing the best to make you happy and satisfied with our work product.
