Surprise Proposal in Amsterdam: Tim & Katina

A few weeks ago I got to witness and photograph a surprise marriage proposal for the third (and certainly not the last) time. When Tim inquired about a couple shoot he failed to mention that he was going to propose to his girlfriend Katina some time during the shoot. I only found out about the surprise on the day of our shoot when Tim texted me. I wasn’t the only one in the dark though – Katina knew about the shoot, but not about what Tim had planned to do. We started our shoot and few minutes in, when we came to a spot Tim and I agreed on he popped the question and this is what happened:

It was a great pleasure to witness this beautiful moment full of overwhelming emotions. Thank you Tim and Katina for letting me be a part of it! After the ring was on and the happy tears were dried we went ahead with the rest of our shoot.

Amsterdam Engagement Photos: Sharon & Christopher

I’ve mentioned in my previous post that I got so many great pictures from Sharon and Christopher’s engagement shoot last October that I just had to split the post into two in order not to overwhelm you with all that autumn awesomeness. Feel free to check out the first part here.

Amsterdam Engagement Shoot: Sharon & Christopher

Exactly five years ago today I launched my website and started blogging. I thought today would be a great time to also share my 100th blog post featuring this beautiful couple from California I got to photograph last October. They are getting married in May this year and while travelling to Europe for a friend’s wedding decided to do an engagement shoot in Amsterdam. This also happens to be one of my favourite shoots from last year and because I got a lot of photos I want to share from this shoot I decided to split the blog post into two: the first one being more formal (the one you’re viewing right now) and the other one more casual, with more giggles and belly laughs.

Amsterdam Couple Photographer: Best of 2016

Already over a month in 2017 I’m only just recovering from the shock of 2016 and all that it was, a year full of tragedies, both distant and personal, and I’m glad to bid farewell to it.

What remained a constant good thing was the amazing people I got to photograph this past year, who chose me to document the celebrations of their relationships.

So without further ado, with 2016 having come to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my awesome clients that year and show you a few of my favourite photos from 2016.

The third and last part of the shoot was a big one. We drove to Giethoorn where Ann and Ray rented a vacation house for one day. They brought their wedding attire with them complete with a bouquet.

Big thanks to Anouk  of NoukStyle for doing Ann’s make-up and hair. Feel free to check out the first and second part of this blog series.
