Aekingerzand Engagement: Lieneke + Patrick

We choose a great evening to go out for the engagement session of Lieneke and Patrick. The sun was still out, a clear sky and it was warm for the time of year. The Aekingerzand is a beautiful sandy area in the south of Friesland and ideal for this sessions. When we started out Lieneke was a little nervous but as soon as we started all fear melted away and she and Patrick turned out to be true natural before the camera. This shows why an engagement session is such a great thing to do.

We had a lot of fun and I could not be happier with the result . Take a look at the images of this engagement session.



Aekingerzand Engagement Preview: Lieneke + Patrick

Lieneke manages the De Hildenberg Golf resort and the Grand Cafe there as well. A little over two years ago Patrick came by to make some adjustments to the outside terras. He watched this girl walking by and chatted with her, laughing with her but when his task was done he said goodbye and left. Lieneke also liked this sweet man at first sight but took no initiative to get his phonenumber or set up a date.

A little while after this first meeting they met again and it was clear they more than liked eachother and the rest is history. Now almost two and half years they are getting married and I am so honored that they asked me to captured they wedding.

This past week we started with their engagement session at the Aekingerzand in Appelscha. So here a preview of their session and I can say they were true naturals. More to come soon.

What you can do with your engagement images

ngagement sessions become more and more common and popular. Couples see the benefit of having this session prior to their wedding day to get to know the photographer, to feel more confident in front of the camera and to get beautiful images. But what can you do with this nice set of images and not only store them in a computer?

Today blog post will help you get more out of your images and enjoy them every day.

Get a signing album for you wedding

Why buy a standard simple book to have your friends and family sign with their best wishes? You can get a custom designed album just for you that not only show cases your engagement images but make it even more special with all of the messages your love ones want to give you.

Invitation

Custom is the word. Couples want to stand out, be different and not have something of the shelves. Personalised invitations or save the dates are a great way to use your images for. Ask your photographer about the options to have your own invitations.

Off the wall

That white wall would look really great with one of your images on canvas, plexiglas, acryl or wood. There are a lot of options to show case your favorite image. Size matters so choose a big size canvas because small on large walls tend to disappear.

Personalised app

A lot of photographers offer the images via a personalised app for your phone or ipad. That way you always have you images with you. In an online gallery app your images look just as good as in an album so ask your photographer about the possibilites.



Amsterdamse Bos Engagement: Kislay + Sonal

For their engagement session we went to the Amsterdamse Bos. We had to reschedule and while we discussed options for morning sessions we both found time in our agenda to have the session in the evening instead. What a good decision that was. We had the Amsterdamse Bos all to ourself and the sun treated Kislay and Sonal extra friendly. They were so relaxed and natural in front of the camera that the session flew by.

Here a small selection of their images.
