Inspiration: Style me Pretty

Category: Wedding

One of the ultimate wedding blogs is without a doubt Style me Pretty. Even if you are already married (like me) it is still a pleasure to look at all of the prettiness that they show on a daily basis. And at the end of the year they have their most popular wedding available in an online magazine. I am a real fan of online publications so I got to share. Hope you find inspiration when you are planning your wedding or have good watching all the beauty.

The sun was shining and if anyone would guessed they would have said that is was spring but it was the heart of winter. Exactly 6 years after the day they met they said I do to each other surrounded by the people that meant the most to them. Their wedding turned out to be one beautiful day.

Judith and Wim I hope you have had a beautiful first year and keep on having more beautiful years to come.

One year ago today Blaricum Wedding: Dieuwke Johan

Category: Photography | Wedding

A year ago today they had their special day near the woods of Blaricum, dreaming of a white Christmas. It was not meant to be and it would take another month before the first snow flakes would fall. But it wasn't  important as they celebrated their wedding day a year ago today.

To many more anniversaries.



Chateau Marquette Wedding: Jerney + Ismarelda

Category: Photography | Wedding

They known each other almost their entire lives. They met in primary school and were the best of friends when they were 8 years old. They remained that way until they both went different ways in their teenage years. But there might have been times that they were out of each other sight, they were never really out of each others heart.

And when about ten years ago Ismarelda needed Jerney's support, she was there to catch her best friend when she needed her help. Of course she was there because that is what friends are for. It was the little spark that ignited the fire and turned into a flame. With a beautiful bonfire on a very special date. Because on the 12-12-12 they said "Yes I do" to each other.

Ismarelda always wanted to get married on a special date and this one could not be more special. Because there are twelve months in a year, twelve hours on the clock, there are twelve provinces in our country, Jacob had twelve sons, Jesus had twelve disciples, there are twelve years in a human cycle according to Chinese astrology, twelve cards with a picture in a desk of cards, the highest number you can throw with two dices is twelve and there are twelve ribs in the human body to protect the heart and longs. So you can say that 12 is a special number.

Jerney and Ismarelda it was a pleasure to capture your day on this very special day of the year.

Top 3 tips from second shooter

Category: Photography | Wedding

Usually I (Mireille) write the posts on the blog but today my sister is taking over. Frequently I get the question why we photograph a wedding with two photographers so I asked her if she could explain what she focuses on during a wedding day. Here her top 3.

Okay here we go. When Mireille asked me te write a blog post containing the part that I concentrate the most on during a wedding day I came to these three items.

1. As 2nd shooter I focus on anything and everything. As I am the one who captures the groom during the preparation that is the first thing I concentrate on to capture this. Further I always keep my eyes on the bride and groom, the family and friends to see if I can capture a lost smile, touch, a moment of emotion or joy. I am also the one that has an eye for the details e.g. during the portraits. Those small details are what make a wedding day memorable.

2. As 2nd shooter I also look at Mireille. We always photograph from different angles and by keeping an eye on Mireille I know if I am in the way or make sure we are not photographing the same thing. By small gestures from Mireille I know what scenario she is thinking about and I can go from there. We are sisters and know each other inside out, a small gesture is usually enough to know what the other has in mind.

3. As 2nd shooter I also concentrate on the schedule of the wedding to make sure that we have captured all the elements, that a couple has asked for but also to know when surprises are planned during the weddingday. When possible I check with Mireille if we have captured everything.



Family formals

Category: Photography | Wedding

Family formals and group shots are a regular part of most wedding days. Some only want a group shot and some want to go through the whole family one by one. This summer when we captured the wedding of Felix and Rachella we got the chance to do different family portraits. Instead of having everybody standing we could do sitting group shots.

Obviously the location was perfect and with the seats outside we could mix it up and get something different. For bride and grooms who are getting married think about what you want to get out of your family formals. Do you want just a reminder of who was there that day or do you want a great family portrait? I would advice to change it up a bit. Not just standing but if possible have a seating or a combination with sitting and standing in the shot.

Take a look at the examples below.



Fine Art Album

Category: Albums | Wedding

I have received one beautiful Fine Art Album to complement the range of wedding albums that we offer. This is a so called Fine Art Album is a flush mount album and it is printed on fine art paper. The sharpness of the images and the color is amazing.

This album has multiple cover options like leather, linen or photo. Further it is flat lay and can be mounted with page separators, which I really like on this album. The spine or the cover can be embossed and what is even better the album starts with 30 pages so a lot of images can be put in the album.

Want to see it up close? Call or mail me for an appointment.



Leiden Schiedam Wedding: Kriszta & Myrko

Can one trip change the rest of your live? Change it without you least expecting it? That is exactly what happened four years ago when Myrko went on a short assignment to the USA and met Kriszta at the America office of the company they both worked for. They met and Kriszta thought of Myrko as her miracle because it is indeed a miracle to find that special person that you know is the one for you.

Never would they have thought that by the end of the assignment their lives would have changed forever, that four years later they would say their vows in front of their close family and friends. But that is what happened last week when they promised eachother to love and cherish eachother for the rest of their lives.

Kriszta and Myrko I am so happy to Novian pointed you in our direction and i am honored that you choose us to capture your wedding day.  Have a great time in Dubai.
