Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

Pretty packaging

Category: Photography | Wedding

Her eyes lit up when she saw it laying there at the end of the table. Yes if she would eat just two more spoons full of food and finish her plate then she could open it. The paper was wrapped tight around the package and a nice ribbon completed the gift. Carefully she took the package, inspecting it before opening it that glimmer in her eyes. Of joy that is what a pretty package does, it makes your heart jump and puts a smile on your face. Just recently I gave a birthday gift to the daughter of one of my girlfriends. That look in her eyes the anticipation, wondering what is inside. That is the best thing about a gift not knowing what is inside. Deciding whether or not open the nice wrapping or to leave it and look at it for a while.

That is what I used to like best looking at my gifts, wondering, dreaming before opening it. That is what I wanted to achieve with my packaging as well. A feeling of curiosity when you see it, making you eyes light up with joy. I think I have found the packaging that does that. I love this new look. It is elegant and chic, black and white with a pretty ribbon. Pretty packaging.



Engagement: Meike and Martijn

Category: Engagement

Their eyes crossed and a smile appeared on their faces. I know him a little over 6 years now, she said answering my question how long they know each other. But on July first Martijn knows me exactly 6 years. So in fact I know him longer.

They played in the same music company and while Meike saw and liked Martijn from the start Martijn's mind was elsewhere. She tried to get near him, tried to chat with him but Martijn was destined to find a fork for his food and Meike cursed that she did not have one for him. And so their ways parted Martijn never knowing that he missed the opportunity to meet a great girl.

But they met again at a music performance a couple of months later. Meike not prepared that she would see Martijn again was surprised when she ran into him. This time she stood out from the crowd from the first moment he spotted her. They talked and laughed and chatted the night the way.

This summer they make it official and say I do. I am looking forward to their wedding in a beautiful spot in the heart of Amsterdam. Want to see more of their engagement session check the slideshow HERE.

Until then I leave you with their engagement session.

As soft place to land: Admiron Photography Facebook Page

Category: Photography

The door was already open when I arrived leading me in the warm room where the lights were just bright enough giving the room that cosy feel. Her face lit up when she saw me. She opened her arm wide and the embrace that followed felt good, familiar. With out hesitation she directed me to the big family sofa full with cushions that fitted like a glove as I sat down. I was almost tempted to put me feet up on the table. I am sure she would not have minded but I could resist the urge. A drink appeared out of nowhere as if she knew what I liked and of course she does, know what I like. I took one sip and closed my eyes feeling content, being here with these special people.

That is how it feels when you arrive at friends who know you so well, where the door is always open and you feel welcome. It is like a soft place to land.

That is exactly what I wanted for my Facebook page. I still have so much to learn about this Facebook thing but this past weekend I created a warm welcome for all my Facebook Page visitors, ergo the welcome page. You can link to the website, go to the blog, visit me on Twitter or send me an email. Everything is there for your convenience.

So go and have a look at the Admiron Photography Facebook Page and be welcome. Press [like] while going in and enjoy yourself.



Inspiration: Lonny Magazine

I turn up the volume, just a little bit more, stretch my arms while wrapping my hands around the steering wheel, like a race driver about to get into some serious speed. All the while my fingers are tapping along in ritme to the music. When I am alone in my car I am the world #1 entertainer. I sing like nobody is watching/hearing and I am sure no one is or else the glass would've spontaneously burst. I can not sing, never have and mostly likely never will. But it does not stop me from singing out loud. There is no greater feeling. But what does this all have to do with the title of this post Mireille? I have no idea other then shedding some light on who I am and what I like.

As I told more than once I am a reader of everything I can get my hands on. While I have not adjusted to the new thing (read iPad) and not sure I will soon, I have already made the transition to reading magazines online. I read Photoshop User Magazine online, which is great by the way, and a couple of weeks ago I came across Lonny Magazine. We used to eat at a great Indonesion restaurant called Lonny's but this has got nothing to do with this magazine. It is a magazine up to the ceiling with inspiration on living. Best thing is if you see something you like you just click on it an a new browser window will open and shows you to the site. I absolutely love it. No subscription required it is free.

Hope you like it, even if you are not redecorating it is great to look and see. Have a great weekend. Click on the image and a new browser window will open with Lonny.
