Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

Apples and Oranges

Category: Photography

Sometimes it is hard to choose and even harder to compare. Like apples and oranges, eventhough they are both fruit they have a very different look and taste and usually have a different price. The same applies to photographers they come in all shapes and sizes with different styles, tastes and prices.

So before you start looking for your wedding photographer and start by comparing on price only, don't. Look at the style of photography, look at how the images make you feel, look at the photographer and then look at the price. Remember you are not buying apples or oranges but the biggest memory of your life so tell me what is that worth to you?

It is always a treat to see beautiful imagery so if beautiful wedding images are involved I am hooked. I found another great source of inspiration for brides and grooms to be. If you are planning your wedding you can find so many inspiration in the online magazine of Ruche.

So take a look in this beautiful magazine. 

Great locations

Sometimes you arrive at a place and everything is right. The bench, the gravel, the trees and the leaves, the way the afternoon sunlight is filtered through the trees. All you need to do is compose and shoot. Every once in a while I encounter such a place and that is why I love open shade and sunshine. The images look so much more pleasant when there is some sun to be seen. So that is why I try to find a location that has it all and when I do I can get images like these.

As promised hereby the images of the dessert table and wedding cake from Robby and Tatiana's wedding. What a beautifully set table with all those delicious sweetness that was catered by Landgoed Waterland resort. Enjoy!

Landgoed Waterland Wedding: Tatiana + Robby

They met at work while working on a project. Robby had seen Tatiana and liked her but he knew that when he wanted to have a conversation with her he had to have a good story. But Tatiana was know as a tough girl. If you wanted to convince her of something you had to have your act together. She had no idea that Robby was trying to make conversation she just though he lost his mind when he started. But somewhere in that moment something must have struck a cord because after living together for a year and a half and the birth of their little son they decided to get married. In the Netherlands of all places. Robby originally from Belgium and Tatiana from Russia the Netherlands is the place where they met, fell in love, had their son and now the place they were getting married.

Robby was nervous, about his vows that included some Russian and the dancing later on that evening but when he saw Tatiana coming down the stairs a smile broke through that didn't dissappear all day long.

Tatiana and Robby you two are so sweet together. I want to say thank you, it was an absolute pleasure to capture your wedding day.

First Robby, in true Russian fashion, had to earn Tatiana by completing some tasks.

All of the beautiful flower arrangements and styling of the venue was done by the talented Marte of Bloom Your Life.

Tatiana you look beautiful.

There was an amazing dessert table that justifies a post of it's own.

Landgoed Waterland Wedding Preview: Tatiana + Robby

It was exactly what they hoped for. An outdoor wedding surrounded with their family and friends as they were getting married together with their little son. So the day could not have started any better when it felt like summer with hardly a cloud in the sky.

Tatiana was so relaxed as her hair was done and here best friend, sister, mother, nephews and brother inlaw were all talking and laughing, playing music excited about the day ahead. She couldn't wait for Robby to pick her up and get married. But there were so many other things planned for this day.

Today a preview of this lovely couple getting married.

To choose a wedding location

Category: Photography | Wedding

The summer reached our country. The sun is high up in the sky and that is really nice if you are getting married today. But how difficult is it to choose a wedding venue? Because when you select a venue months before your wedding day you have no idea what it is going to look like on your special day. Do you want to get married in a castle, a mansion or at the beach?

Every location has it's pros and cons so it is good to think about what you wish your wedding day to look like. Especially when photography is important to you it is good to look at a venue from a photography perspective.

So what to consider:

How many people are you inviting for your wedding? Ceremony sites are usually very small. With a lot of people in a tight space you limit the options for the photographer. We photograph with two photographers to reduce this problem but it is alway good to take it into account when selecting your venue.

Look at the light. Especially in castles and mansions the windows are small and high and as a result not a lot of light is getting in creating a difficult situation for the photographer, shadows and backlight. When you want to limit flashlight a light room with natural light has a lot of advantages.

You want to get married outside? An outside wedding during the summer? Consider the timing of the ceremony. Usually wedding ceremonies are in the early afternoon when the sun is high in the sky with hard, direct, unflattering light that result in deep shadows. So consider to hold the ceremony in spot with open shade e.g. the shadow of a big tree, use a tent or a light arbor. If you do not have the option to change the ceremony sight you can always consider the time of the ceremony to late in the afternoon.
