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.

Loveshoot in Zaanse Schans and Volendam: Ann & Ray

This is the first part of a three-part blog series featuring Ann and Ray, an engaged couple from Hong Kong. I thought these guys deserved three blog posts, not only because we had shoots at four different locations, but also because three of those shoots we had in the scorching sun on what seemed to be the hottest day in the Netherlands this summer and the guys suffered from jet lag BUT they still managed to rock the socks off! Thank you guys for being amazing! And big thanks to Anouk for doing Ann’s make-up and hair.
