Category: Personal

My sister send me this in the mail which she saw on Mike Larsons Twitter and it is something beautiful. If only we would go out of our way and see what is within everybody, the world would be a beautiful place every single day. Validation we are looking for it, everywhere and look what happens when we get it. Something beautiful.



White by Vera Wang

Category: Wedding

Ask a girl about the dress she wants to wear on her wedding day, the dress she dreams about and it is very likely she will say two words: Vera Wang. But until resently that is what it usually remained, a dream. Well not anymore as Vera Wang decided to collaborate with Davids Bridal and create the special line White by Vera Wang. This first spring line of 12 dresses was presented in February of this year and the dresses are truly breathtaking. But the best part is that the dresses are very budget friendly because they start at $600 and go up to $1400 which is a steal for these dresses. The dresses are available at Davids Bridal and are shipped internationally so you could order a dress online.

And now it has been announced that besides the Spring Collection Vera Wang is also introducing a Bridesmaids collection together with Davids Bridal which will be available from June. The first sneak peak has been circulating the internet and it looks amazing as well. Now tell me don't you want to get married when you see all this?

Shots that make me Happy

Category: Photography

It is that time again. A shot that makes me happy. And today I have selected another shoe shot. Shoes really make me happy and even though my closet is not filled to the tee with shoes I still like my share of it. But being able to photograph shoes makes live a little prettier. So just for today, just for you another shot of a really nice pair of shoes.



Book Review: Fine Art Wedding Photography

Category: Photography

Sometimes you can look at the cover and judge the book, judge the content. The first time I saw the Fine Art Wedding Photography book of Jose Villa I knew what was inside was good. More than 150 pages of sheer beauty and some great inside information from Jose Villa himself. How he started in photography and still works with film instead of digital. The book is divided into three part's the technical aspect of photography and how he creates his master pieces and how you as a reader can create the same even with digital. Of course it can never be the same but that should never be the intention. It should inspire.

The second part is all about the wedding day and how he approaches this. What he does very well I think is stand out make sure that people notice the art he is creating.

Every chapter ends with lessons learned from Jose. Things he encountered during weddings and what he has learned from it and giving you as the reader something to think about. The third part is how to move forward the business side of photography.

I like the book a lot if not only by all the gorgous images that are used through out the book. It is an easy read and provides information on posing, pricing, marketing strategies. Maybe not very indept but it gives you insight in how Jose does it. If you love beautiful wedding photography this is the book for you.



In bloom

Category: Personal | Photography

Just before this Easter weekend it almost seems like we are in the Middle of August. The sun is shining high in the sky and a small bee is zooming in my ear while a sight leaves my mouth. No sigh because I am tired or frustration but a sigh of contentment. How beautiful the world is in Spring. It is April and leaves appear in the trees. My patch of land needs some water as small plants appear on the surface. I have to plant so more seeds of vegetables and herbs to make sure I can harvest at the right time.

That is life, reap and you will sow. My eye catches the blossom in the apple trees. It never gets old and I get my camera to shoot some images with my marco. The colors, the smell. I look at the tree and realise that if I take good care of it now I can eat the fruit of my labor in the near future.

Happy weekend.
