Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

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

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.

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.

There is something about the light, the shadows at 12.00 noon, the colors that gives it away immediately. The light of the mediterian. Where the sun is already shining brightly in March and stays like that until late autumn. So a great reason to go  down south and choose a beautiful location to get married. The light, the weather, the food, the feeling of the place, all pretty good reasons to choose for a destination wedding.

True that a smaller group of people are likely to join you but if you can choose between the people that matter most or a big party that can for some be an easy choice. And a lot of other reasons will apply but after I attended the destination wedding of Peter and Kanika in Sorrento I would be more than happy to shoot this type of wedding any day of the week.

You must admit if this is the view from your wedding location then the answer to a destination wedding is easy: I do.

Classy and Fabulous

Category: Photography | Portrait

She closed her eyes while make up was being applied. A color that made her eyes shine giving her that intense look. The selection of clothes were chosen carefully containing a mix of styles. A beautiful selection but a true reflection of who she really is. Like Coco Chanel put it accurately "A girl should be two things: Classy and Fabulous".

Two things you can not buy or acquire but something that you can only be and my sister is a true representation of both. Shining true in this portrait session. For this series we tried something different using techniques thought by Sue Bryce amazing Australian Glamour Photographer. I always like to try new things and am happy how these turned out.

The fun of being a wedding photographers is that you are a lot photographers into one. Not only are you a lifestyle photographer but also a fashion photographer, food photographer, macro photographer to make every aspect of a wedding day come to life. And you have to be able to do it quickly. When you are a food photographer or fashion photographer one shot can take one whole day. The styling, the lighting, the composition has to be perfect before the shutter can be pushed.

Imagine what would happen if a wedding photographer would do this? Not a single shot would be captured. Everything has to keep moving all the while capturing amazing shots. Making sure I can capture the images I envision I always try to think ahead of what I want an image to look like. That is why I love to do engagement sessions. I get to know my couple so on the wedding day I already know how my couple photographs. To see how I can capture them at their best. I am probably more nervous for an engagement session than on the wedding day. What will they look like on camera will they relax and have fun? It is the best rehearsal because on their wedding day they can actually have some fun.
