Zusters familieportret in het Beatrix park, Amsterdam…
Het vroege lente weer was erg fijn. Er bloeiden zoveel mooie bloemen, krokussen en narcissen. Deze bloemen maakte een kleurrijke achtergrond voor het familie portret van drie zussen. De late middag zon zorgde voor een zachte gloed. De meisjes speelden met de bloemen en ze rende rond. Het was een glorieuze lente dag, een van de eerste warme dagen na de winter. De witte kleding van de meisjes bleef niet wit tot aan het einde maar daar hebben we gelukkig photoshop voor. De zussen hadden zoveel lol, dat het niet zo belangrijk leek.

The wedding of  Balla and Joyce was a very colourful, exotic Indian weddings. All of the bright colours gave a real depth to the photos.  She  wore two saris, which were her wedding dresses. This made the wedding feel almost like a like a  fashion shoot. The red dress to start and the  white dress to finish the special day. Both were  like beautiful, glittery evening  gowns and gave the photos a  lot of variety and style. Balla was also unique with his turban, and face painting. The 3 bides maids were adorable in their white dresses with  Indian sari sashes , and  their faces painted as well. International weddings are an adventure.

Jurrian and Linda  used purple as the theme color for their wedding. It is not so often used in weddings,  and that was why it made it  so special. The purple corsage of Jurrian, the  purple flowers in the bridal bouquet. And the purple  carpet that  the ceremony took place was on. These  small details  just made the photos so much more beautiful, and compatible in colour, as the colour created a recurring theme.  Of course Linda was a gorgeous bride – and she looked stunning in her  strapless wedding dress. Her bridal photos were just timeless, especially in black and white.

It was definitely fun in the forest on this day when I was shooting commercial photos for Fun Forest in Amsterdam. Taking portraits up in the trees! The Peter Pan feeling was everywhere as we zip lined through the forest. Photography takes me to so many magical places. Suited up with professional climbing gear was exciting and also relieving as I looked down  from 15 meter above…

This  was really a magical location for taking photos. A dream wedding in Provence, south of France, at the end of  summer. The  light was  so clear and  bright until the  end of the evening. The natural dryness and  beige hues of the land and the Cezanne like painted  background created a  super  special color  effect. Everyone was in such a  great mood, as this wedding was not just one day. It was a  whole weekend celebration. The bride resembled Grace kelly with her elegant long, open back dress. Everything was  so easy to photograph. When the wedding lasts 3 days the  photos become much more intimate because this extra  time give  me the opportunity to really know the guests and they also begin to  relax and feel comfortable  when there is a zoom lens pointing in their direction.

Fall Portraits have the beautiful colors in them. Using the Beatrix Park in Amsterdam as a backround gives a  natural feel to the photo. I have  been shooting Katalina and Savannah for about 8 years now. So much fun to see them grow from toddelars to girls to lovely young ladies. They  always like to have some crazy, spontaneous photos.  The back light was amazing in the park. We had so much fun.

This was an early spring wedding. Simple, but but very effective. They chose one location for the  whole venue. This  is often easier, as more locations can mean guests arriving late. The location was a hotel in bergen, that also has an official marriage  room. The bride had her hair and makeup done in her room. The ceremony room was professionally decorated. She  did a great  job. With  some flower petals  and   some very cute  signs, a simple room was transformed into an elegant marriage chamber.
