Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

The right shoes

Another week has passed by so quickly. It is Friday again and the weekend awaits, the last weekend of February. Time is passing to fast. So I was thinking about a blog post. What should I write about on this Friday? Shoes! Why? You say. Well I would like this blog not only to be a place where i share my work but if possible provide some inspiration and tell you readers what I like. To start of I am not shoe junkie nor Carrie Bradshaw with a closest full of shoes but I can understand why women can get happy just by looking at shoes let alone buy a pair.

Because a good pair of shoes can last you a lifetime, that's probably why women are willing to invest a months pay in the right pair. They will be with you forever. Okay that sound dramatic but it is true. If you maintain them, nourise them properly they will last.

So I am kind of surprised to see that a lot of brides choose shoes they will most likely only wear once. Choosing "real" wedding shoes, saving them in box and put them on only on their wedding day. Selecting shoes that feel comfortable and that look amazing they can have the added bonus that you will have a daily reminder of that great day and wear your amazing shoes over and over again.

So choose something beautiful and wear them again and again.

Happy Friday

Book Review: Karen Rose

Category: Personal

It took a while before I started with Karen Rose. Not really sure why because as a thriller fan I enjoy a new book. Fortunately a friend of mine had the whole series and I just started with Have you seen her. Totally different than Karin Slaughter or Lisa Scottoline. Some hardcore murder and the most gruwsome terror combines with a love at first sight story and off course a lot of confusion between the hero Special Agent Steven Thatcher and the heroine Jenna Marshall. 

It has the read on factor and I really wanted to know how it ended and bought myself a copy. I can imagine thought that it is more a book for women than men but if I got it all wrong just let me know. If you like a good thriller with a good dose of love than Karen Rose is the author you got to read.

Shots that make me Happy

Category: Personal | Photography

It is Friday and I realised it has been a while since I did a shot that makes me happy. An image can be technically perfect and not say a thing and have all these imperfections and remind you of that specific moment in time. That is what makes me happy when I see an image.

I remember the day that I shot this image, when I walked (yes I walked) to the first mall just outside of Las Vegas. It was only one street I saw on the map but I had no idea how long this one street might be and I unestimated the distance. But I had my Addidas on and I kept on walking. People in cars were looking at me funny but I made it all the way to the mall. Because I did not want to admit to myself that it was a bad idea, that I should have taken the bus in the first place. So I kept on walking and felt really good when I made it to the mall. That is what this shot reminds me of, me just walking not giving in. So sometimes it is good that we have no idea because if we would have known from the start we would never begin and then so many things would never have been here in the first place.

In the end I took the Douce back to the hotel because walking one way was more than enough.

Happy Friday.

Be My Valentine

Category: Personal

On this day of love there has to be a post on Valentine. Not so much on who we secretly admire or declare our love to. No an inspiration post of what you can wear on this day of love or what you can wear when you decide to do an engagement shoot.

And of course it has to be red, the color of love, and balloons lots of balloons. Take a look and be inspired. If you want to know more about the items just click on the image.

Happy Valentines day!

Be my Valentine

February Self portrait

Category: Photography | Portrait

Ok so I am getting the hang of it this self portrait thing. This time my dear sister took some shots of me and I was ready to strike a pose if you will. Yes, get in front of the camera and get uncomfortable and then after a little while I got more comfortable. I am not a fan of being in front of a camera, true. When I can choose I rather be behind my camera. But sometimes is good to step outside of my comfort zone so I can relate what it feels like to be in front of a camera. That way I can coach my clients even better.

So strike a pose!
