Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

Things I love Friday: Photography

Category: Photography

It took us about 6 months to get this date set up. First one got ill, so we postponed and we shifted the date two months and then still not everyone could be there but today we finally got together. These days we first share how everybody is doing but the rest of the day is all about photography. We critique each others work, discuss our favorite photographers, discuss how to's in CS4, other photography related issues and end with new assignments.

Eventhough I photograph a lot I still like to go outside of the frame and challenge myself with new assignments. Nothing better than seeing the work of others and also she how they view my work.

Well during this year I have been adjusting and tweeking my website more than once to get the way I want it to be. First I incorporate the theme of the blog and added examples of wedding and engagement shoots with the slideshows. I am convinced that I should keep moving, improving and more over show what I am capable of. Besides that I think i it is nice to see my website and blog evolve. I am very happy to say that is now very close to what I want it to be. That what I had in my mind is now coming together in real life.

Because I want to give you all a small piece of the experience. Of seeing, feeling and experiencing what it is like to be in front of my camera. Go ahead take a look at the new and improved Admiron Photography website at

For your eyes only: Boudoir

Category: Photography

Boudoir is the new black. Ever since the Boudoir Divas started their studio and gave women their sexy back boudoir has become very populair. Not only with brides who want to surprise their husbands to be with a little black book, at lot of women treat themselves to boudoir to make them feel good. It takes a confident woman to reveil their inner beauty with a boudoir session.

Boudoir can take place anywhere but I like it to be in the womans natural environment, use the natural light available. A place where she feels good and you can see her change in front of the camera. That is what boudoir does with a woman and I love to share some images I have taken a while ago.

Things I love Friday: Digifoto

It has been a while for Things I love Friday. I love to read and I love photography so today I had the best of both worlds reading magazine Digifoto. A pile of magazines is waiting for me but I started with this one. I like this magazine as it is a nice mix of gear review, portfolio review, different styles of photography. It gives great insight in the world of photography that can be very inspiring.

As a photographer especially a wedding photographer it is so easy to just make the same photograph over and over again. For every client it is new but I want to prevent that in the end my portfolio is the same. By reading a magazine like Digifoto give me fresh idea's about photography and that I really like.

Ronald called me to tell me I received a gift, a bouquet of flowers. I had no idea who it was from but it turned out Wouter of MIH Interieur was so happy that I send him a couple of images of the new hall way closet that he decided to send me flowers in return. Well ain't that a sweet gesture.

Twitter state of mind

Category: Personal

I am not a front runner. Never have been. When something was in fashion I usually bought it when it was just about to go out of style. No seriously I became a fan of Prince six years after the movie and album Purple Rain got released. I had my first a mobile phone about 8 years ago a Nokia 6300 a business phone when everybody I know was on their second or third phone. While everybody had an ipod, I received a second generation two years ago as a gift. I still buy CD's and have a CD player in my car. I want to embrace change but with certain things I am kind of glad I know how it works. Which is ok.

So while everybody is using twitter and facebook for ages, I only started a couple of months ago. Two girlfriends of mine tried to convince I should start using it, but I could not see any reason. What did I have to share that would interest anybody? But they convinced me I could use it to communicate, to share information and I must say it is kind of fun to read what others are doing and might be fun to share what I am doing like I do with the blog.

But why have Twitter when I can only use it on my laptop? So this weekend I finally found a twitter client for my 2 year old Nokia E71. It might not be the most cool phone on the planet and I might not be able to ping with it but I love my phone and now with tweets60 I can twitter!

I have arrived people, yes I am part of the twitter community.

Engagement: Mireille & Tobias

Category: Engagement | Slideshow

They had known each other for years from playing volleybal, from hi and hello but they really got to know eachother through a blind date, even though it was not really a "blind" date. Wel it turned out that they liked each other, more than liked eachother and next year they are getting married.

For their engagement shoot we went to Landgoed Wester Amstel, a small estate with a beautiful house in Oudekerk aan de Amstel. The ideal setting for an engagement shoot. Everything went our way, the weather was beautful and the date was 10-10-10. I really am looking forward to document their day next year.

In the meanwhile I leave you with the photographs from their session. If you want to see more check out their  slideshow.

De Deining Wedding: Mireille & René Part II

Category: Slideshow | Wedding

Here it is, part II of the amazing wedding of René and Mireille. There were so many details to shoot on their wedding day and I know how René and Mireille love details so we could eat our hearts out. The sun did not show it's face but we had about fifteen minutes before dinner to shoot on the beach and they turned out great. René could not stop smiling and Mireille was positively radiant.

But that was nothing compared to what René and Mireille had in store for all their guests as opening dance. They made a mix of songs starting in the 60's up until 2010 and created their own choreography to these songs. It was absolutely amazing and the Booming Piano's kept the crowd on the floor all night long.

René and Mireille hope you have a great time in Marocco on your honeymoon. I want to thank for allowing me to document your wedding and being one of the first to trust in me. Thank you, thank you.

If you want to see more of this wedding check the slideshow here.

The mothers also had an emotional speech in store

An then the dancing started!

The Booming piano's kept everyone on the dance floor all night!

Landgoed Waterland Wedding: Mireille & René Part I

Category: Wedding

They met exactly 10 years ago for the first time during Alkmaars Ontzet. She was with her girlfriends and he was with his friends. They saw eachother, chatted and went their separate ways. They met again for the second time that night and set up a date to go swimming with the two groups, the girls and boys. Well René was the only one of the guys who showed up. They had fun, saw eachother more than once in the months that followed but the flame ignited behind a deep fryer on new years eve. Well that flame has kept on burning and if you would see them today you would think they just met. Their flame is still burning full force.

Just 4 months ago on the Piazza San Marco René went down on one knee and asked Mireille to marry him. Violins were playing in the background and Mireille's eyes filled with tears. It could have easily been a movie scene. Off course Mireille said yes. The violins stopped playing and the people on the piazza sheered, not clear if it was for the violin player or for the proposal of René but they did not care they were getting married.

Well 4 months later their wedding day has turned out nothing short of spectacular. It was a long day with so many memorable moments that I decided to dedicate two posts to this wedding. I was touched by the way Mireille and Rene's family took care of us during the day. Their lovely parents and grand mothers made us feel so welcome.

Here an impression of the morning and the ceremony at the Waterland Estate. Check back soon for Part II and the slideshow.

Engagement preview: Mireille & Tobias

Category: Engagement

If you would ask me how many brides are you photographing within one year with the same name (my name in fact) I would have answered none. So imagine my surprise when I received an email from Mireille and Tobias! My second bride that shares my name. I think I have met no more than five women that are called the same and two of them are my brides, can you imagine.

They are getting married in spring of next year and have a nice wedding planned. After their email I called, we chatted, we connected and last Sunday we had their engagement shoot in Landgoed Wester Amstel a nice house with a small park surrounding it. It was an amazing day the sun was shining, the sky was clear blue. A perfect location for an engagement shoot, a great location for Mireille and Tobias.

Hopefully we can do it again in spring on their wedding day, because I am really happy and looking forward to document your wedding day. Here a preview of their session.
