Wedding Photography is my greatest love. I love the tension of photographing a whole day, from pre-wedding preparations to the festivities at night capturing the signature moments that fill that special day. Your wedding day is a day to cherish for the rest of your life. There is so much going on, so much is happening, the day often goes by like a blur. I will freeze signature moments for you from the moment of preparation to the festivities in the evening so the two of you can relive those moments for the rest of your lives after that tumultuous day is behind you. I photograph in a non intrusive manner. I am a laid-back person, I love to blend in with the scene often to the point you will not even notice I am there. During the formal portraits and family shots I will be more in the foreground but even though it may sound a little strange, my day would be perfect if people would say "was there even a photographer present today?" 🙂 All kidding aside, I will make sure I will get the moments that matter. The two of you have more than enough to think about, don't worry about the photos, I will take care of that. I hope to meet you face to face soon and have the honour to be part of your special day! I am proud to say that Bridebook honoured me with a Silver Bridebook Wedding Awards 2019 Badge of Excellence!

What is your most memorable wedding?
I do not have a favourite. All weddings are special occasions and every single one is a new adventure for me and holds surprises and challenges.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Unobtrusive Invisible Relaxed Documentary Ninja
What about your business are you most proud of?
The ability to blend in, take a step back and let things unfold. The genuine appreciation of this approach by the couples I photograph.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Choose suppliers who suit you, with whom there is a 'click' and you can't go wrong!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A sunflower themed wedding where literally everything was infused with the theme.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After an initial Email or Messenger contact I meet up with the couple to discuss the requirements of the wedding. The meetup can also be a pre-wedding shoot which is included with my half- and whole day packages and where we can meet in an informal way and do a photo shoot whilst talking about the wedding. My clients are king, they decide what they want and I will follow their requirements and offer suggestions when needed.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I always put my couples in the directors' chair and let the venue and the surroundings dictate what pictures are best, so it is very fluid.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A long exposure photo with sparklers creating a heart-shape around the newly weds.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Describe how you got into photography.
I graduated at the AKI Art Academy in Enschede, The Netherlands as a Baccalaureus in Fine Arts, I have been a Graphic Designer for 15 years and have been photographing for decades. When I emigrated to the UK in 2014 I decided to dedicate myself to photography full-time and to wedding photography in particular because I love the range of emotions during the day and to capture those emotions to the best of my abilities.
