After Wedding Shoot in Giethoorn: Patry & Ivan

Giethoorn, also know as the Venice of the North or the Dutch Venice, is a beautiful and peaceful village in Overijssel province that has over 180 bridges and is only accessible by boat. And this summer I got to shoot not one, but two wedding shoots there. The first one is of Patry and Ivan, a couple from Spain, who were fascinated with this village and set their minds on having their wedding shoot there. We first rented a boat from MS van den Heuvel and then just walked around the paths and over the numerous bridges taking photos whenever we liked.

Special thanks to Marina Mazurok for make-up and hair and to Bloemenweelde for the beautiful bouquet.

Amsterdam Engagement Shoot: Maria & Eric

I’m writing this from the comfort of my childhood home and through the open window I can hear the wind rustling through the trees outside, the sound of an electric saw, neighbours’ chickens bawking and our dog holding a barking contest with the neighbours’ dog.

I have been lazy last month and only updated my blog once. In order to catch up I will be posting three posts this month instead of the usual two.

Meet Maria and Eric, an engaged couple from Chicago on their first trip to Amsterdam. We scheduled the shoot late in the evening back in July and it was the first time in months that I got to use my new lens to get what I bought it for – that lens flare.

Amsterdam Anniversary Shoot: Ania & Pasha

Ania and Pasha decided to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary with a romantic photo shoot in Amsterdam. We started the shoot with taking some photos in Vondelpark and then headed to the city for some classic Amsterdam shots. Ania was wearing a beautiful sequin gown which got quite a few compliments from passersby. Don’t you think they look lovely? I sure do!

Amsterdam Loveshoot: Amy & Stanley

Amy and Stanley came all the way from Hong Kong just to see Coldplay perform. The few days they spent in Amsterdam were also a part of their honeymoon trip and a photo shoot in the city was a way to commemorate that occasion. I went a little overboard when culling the images and ended up with a lot more photos than I usually deliver, because these two are just so darn cute together!

Amsterdam Anniversary Shoot: Akhil & Sarika

Akhil and Sarika flew from India to celebrate their twelfth anniversary with a short vacation in Amsterdam. Can you believe those two have been married for twelve years? It’s great to know that you could be together for so many years and still not only enjoy each other’s company, but be very much in love.
