For now, just pictures…
It was one of those weddings I just can’t get enough of looking back at and I’ve totally loved to post process these pictures. It was a wonderful clear day, there were two beautiful people, completely in love and beautiful scenery to shoot them in. Perfection!
Stephanie & Jonathan had a wedding full of wonderful little details. All the attention they payed to those details made it a blast to shoot. I’m very happy to show some of the pictures I shot with you…
Today I had a quick Indian bridal shoot for a make-up artist in training. Chantal was the wonderful model and even though she’d never been in front of a camera before, she did very well.
We shot in a beautiful location in Zoetermeer, the ilili Grand Cafe, and Angela did some wonderful make-up so here’s some of todays pictures!
Sometimes sweet weddings just happen to drop right out of the sky and just a few weeks ago I was asked to shoot the wedding of Iris & Tom. They suddenly found themselves without a photographer and well, I got the question whether I could shoot.
They were under the very lucky circumstances that I just took a few days off and my parents were so nice to come and babysit Faeye for a few hours (heroes they are) so we made it all happen.
Here’s some of the many beautiful images I shot that day and I don’t want you all to miss out on…
After a very last-minute message, I suddenly had another wedding on the last day of the year. Jacky and Alvins wedding to be exact. It was a lovely, simple and personal ceremony.
For me however this was a special one, because when I shot another wedding last year, my parents were able to babysit my wonderful daughter Faeye, but this time there was no such thing. The bride had told me it was perfectly OK to bring her along, she would be the youngest guest at the wedding.
So that said, I shot the entire wedding while I was carrying Faeye in a wrap. She was so sweet and fell asleep halfway through the ceremony (not that the officiant was that boring really). It’s been awesome this was possible!
I still remember her asking me that one day in 2012, that if he’d ever ask her, whether I would want to shoot her wedding. So of course, the answer was simple, I would love to. Debbie being a colleague of mine I see her quite often and we get along well. We have a good laugh during the week and well, I was quite sure I would be able to get her camera shy ass out there on some sweet wedding pictures.
So the second Monday of January this year she walks into the office and comes up to me: “Anouk?”. “Yes?!”. “You know I asked you to to take pictures right?”. “Yes?!”. “Well……….”. And well, the rest is history. Edwin asked to marry Debbie on New Years and they got married almost a year later.
And I kept my promise, I was the photographer and we had a great time. Even these two wonderful camera shy people got out of their shells and how can you do anything else on your wedding day. We had wonderful weather, a great time and a good laugh. I love shooting a wedding like that. For me it’s all about having a good time to make the pictures and the time worth looking at for a long time after.
In this case I’m quite sure we managed, both Debbie and Edwin are extremely happy after they saw the pictures, so all I can say for now, have a look yourself and be the judge…
Sometimes as a photographer you get asked to shoot something you don’t even think to doubt about. When two friends of mine asked me to shoot their wedding, I didn’t even dream of doubting. They are such a loving couple, it couldn’t be a much more beautiful wedding.
So at this question, I jumped, I loved the idea of shooting their wonderful day. And wonderful it was. The weather worked with us, as it was a beach wedding, this was quite important, and their love showed more than ever. I felt privileged being there with them and being able to make those memories last in pictures. And last they will I tell you.
Tonight I brought them the pictures and I can finally show you those wonderful moments… I hope you all like these pictures!
Sometimes as a photographer you’re so lucky to witness the most happy moments in people’s lives. This time it was a wedding of a collegue of mine. And this one was special, for I was there when Bas proposed to Inez as well. Actually, I was the one who set it up, as he asked her at work. It was so nice to be able to shoot both that lovely moment and the wedding.
With their two little princesses and everything set, the weather working with us (even though it was pretty warm) and all the guests there, it was a magical day! I want to share some of those magical moments with you all.
As a photographer I get to be on the front line of some people’s important milestones. Last saturday I was witness of a very special one. My sister in law had her ‘Celtic wedding’, also known as a ‘Handfasting’ with her sweetheart. A while back they asked me to take some pictures of their day and well, I couldn’t say no could I?
At a Celtic festival they had their beautiful moment. Amidst family and friends, basically our own extended family they shared their moment. This is what I ‘froze in time’ for them…
By the end of June it was busy. I had lots of work at my dayjob, but some wonderful photography events as well. One of them was the wedding of Natasja & Hein. Two beautiful people who were an absolute joy to photograph. Together with two lovely colleagues we shot the wedding from different perspectives and it was very nice to realize some of the shots I’ve been dreaming of to shoot… It was an absolute joy!
Just three weeks ago, on a really lovely day, the 25th of May to be exact, I was the photographing witness of the wedding of Angelique & Rob. And a lovely wedding it was. We had a blast. From (very) early in the morning until late at night, they kept on smiling and joking around. So, I am proud to present a very small selection of the pictures I took at their wedding, in celebration of their love…
One year ago I was the photographing witness of the love of two people. Wieke & Nils promised to spend the rest of their lives together as registered partners. It was a magical moment to see two wonderful people join in this moment, knowing their love was on it’s way to become more, with Wieke’s pregnancy. With this little blog, I want to share the beauty of the anniversary of their year together, which is now three of course…
