Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

New Classics

Category: Photography | Portrait

                     Because beautiful things will never go out of style.

                               The white jeans is a classic!

Since the moment I took this shot I felt like it could have been part of an ad campaign. The lovely Inge looks beautiful in this image so I had to do something with it and I am so happy that it actually looks like a shot that could have been part of an ad campaign. Happy Queensday

The backup

Category: Photographers

Storage seems to get cheaper and cheaper every month. A terra-bite would cost thousands of euro's a couple of years ago, now you can purchase 1TB for less then 100 euro on a disc that is hardly larger then a credit card. But with the large files that come out of a camera and need to be stored, the available space sometimes seems to evaporate.

I like to have multiple instances of my images and store them in different location. So I now purchased the ultimate storage for my backup. It is the G-drive from G-Technology which is power by Hitachi. It looks and feels like a complements the Apple family perfectly. It is completely recyclable and all aluminum. I am amazed by the speed of the Firewire connection. So I am looking forward to storing many images on it.

See for yourself doesn't it look cute.

Wedding style

Category: Wedding

Love is a beautiful thing, it is and different for everyone. That is why I like weddings so much because everybody celebrates this day in their own style. Some big and lavishly while others keep it small and intimite.

I like to revisit my images every now and then and see if there is more behind and image. To give it a new or different feel to it and show case it here on the blog.

Have a great day today!

It is Monday. Last year we had summer in Netherlands but if we look outside today it seems like autumn is in full swing. Rain and cold can affect how we feel and think. The funny thing is that it only takes one thought to change how we feel. To change every thing around. That can make us sing and dance.

To start the week right with a note of inspiration I want to share a quote.

Shots to Admire

Category: Photography

What is the magic of photography? Is it possibility to stop time? Capture a moment that never comes back? Create memories to cherish a life time? Show how beautiful people are? In my opinion all of the above.

I have no idea why some images have that something special that can attrack your eye to it immediately. But I do know that sometimes when I press that shutter I know I have captured one. These moments are special and I cherish more than anything.

Here one of those beautiful image to take you into the weekend from a shoot I did last year.

Have a great weekend.

See the beauty

Category: Photography

Beauty is every where, is all around us, in small things and big things. It fills our hearts and makes u sigh. It can be in bright colors or just in black and white. See it in your minds eye or just close them and visualise and it will come to you.

I firmly believe that we can do anything we set our minds to. Be succesful, get all the things we wish for, by working hard and having the right mindset. There is no greater reward and that is beauty as well.

Celebrating in style

Category: Personal

Last year Rome this year Barcelona. Yes I can get used to celebrating my birthday in style. On the beach with a glas of Sangria, in the sun and diner at 7 Portes for some Paella. We were lucky as the sun was shining all weekend when rain was in the forecast.

In a city like this it is not so bad to turn a year older.

Haarlemmermeerse Bos Family Shoot

Here they are some images of the family shoot we did this past weekend. With the fun group of 14 we walked the Haarlemmermeerse Bos site that was once the host to the Floriade. The parents can be proud of their family because it was a lot of fun the see how everyone was participating.

Eventhough it was quite cold everybody insisted on taking their coats off and it was much appreciated because it adds to the result. I hope everyone will have a great time a the 50th wedding anniversary party coming up very soon. In the meanwhile I leave you with the images of this great family

We started with the jackets on for the test shot.

Beautiful family



One of my favorites

In front of the Lens

Category: Photography | Portrait

March is behind us and after two episode of being in front of the camera this is slowly becoming a series. Okay I should have posted in March but who can keep up with time these days anyway. While trying new portrait poses with my sister we traded places and it was my turn.

And trying it myself this could have been an episode of ways to learn. Because by trying these poses myself I have learned so much and seeing the result was a beautiful surprise because I never thought I could look like this in an image. 

Happy Wednesday

Haarlemmermeerse Bos Family Shoot Preview

I have known Jolanda for more than 15 years and this year is a special year for her parents. Because this year they celebrate their fiftieth anniversary. So when she asked me if in honor of this special day I wanted to photograph her parents, the children and grandchildren I was so honored. A couple of months back we set this date and hoped for good weather and we were lucky, a little chilly but dry and the sun showed it's face more than once.

We choose former Floriade grounds and what a fantastic spot is that. We have seen just a fraction but the kids could run and run and climb. So it became a great afternoon and of course I want to show a small preview.
