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.

We complete our Hilton series with a bang. These two grooms we got to capture were such a great couple. Enthousiastic, funny and real pro's in front of the camera. I was sure they had been in front of the camera many times but they were not, this was a first.

On their wedding day 5 years ago they did not even have a photographer. We had so much fun with the cake, the view and the sun on the balcony. So here the preview of Frans and Mark.

She is full of great ideas and always make certain that the final result is what the couple envisions.

Haarlemmermeerse Bos Engagement: Robby and Tatiana

The forecast said no rain, no sun either but when I was in my car the raindrop were falling from the sky. But it stopped when I arrived at the location. When Robby and Tatiana came along with their little son the sky was still grey but not threatening. So I was happy to see that while we stayed outside the sun decided to join us.

It was so fun to be out together with Robby and Tatiana. They are so happy and Robby knows how to make Tatiana smile. But the star of the afternoon was their little son. He took center stage. Only 7 months and he can already stand leaning against the table, what a sweet boy.

Robby and Tatiana I am really looking forward to their wedding next month.

Here an overview of the engagement session.
