Surprise Proposal in Amsterdam: James & Linda

I got to photograph quite a few surprise proposals last year and I hope I get to capture more this year, because they are becoming my favourite thing to shoot.

James proposed to Linda in the beginning of November last year which came as a complete surprise to her (well done, James!). Linda got so emotional that I found it hard to hold back the tears myself.

If you’re planning to propose in Amsterdam (or anywhere else in the Netherlands), feel free to reach out to me and I will help you any way I can and be honoured to capture this beautiful moment for you to remember.

Amsterdam Family Photography: The Muldoons Anno 2016

The last shoot I’m going to share with you in 2017 before logging off is also one from autumn last year. We actually did another shoot with the Muldoon family this year, but I thought I’d share the one from 2016 first.

I’m making it my New Year’s resolution to do more family shoots next year. So if you would like me to make some casual family portraits for you in the coming year, don’t hesitate to drop me a line. Happy New Year, everyone!

Autumn Couple Shoot in Amsterdam: Amanda & Daniel

Amanda contacted me in the spring of last year to book a casual couple shoot as a surprise for her then-fiance Daniel as they were planning their honeymoon trip to Amsterdam in November. And that’s exactly what it turned out to be – a fun and casual couple shoot with as a backdrop Amsterdam clad in the coat of autumn colours.

Amsterdam is beautiful in the beginning of November. If you’re planning a trip to Amsterdam and want to see it in all its autumnal glory – the end of October and the beginning of November is the time to visit. See for yourself:

Giethoorn Wedding Shoot: Audrey & Claudia

I haven’t posted anything for quite a while, because I was overwhelmed by the number of beautiful shoots I’ve done over the summer and I couldn’t decide which ones I should share first. I’m happy to announce that it’s no longer the case and I thought some summer imagery would brighten up a dreary autumn day like today.

This shoot is from beginning of July this year and the focus of attention is Audrey and Claudia, a lovely couple from Macau, China, who chose Giethoorn as the background for their wedding photos.

Big thanks to Chantelle Alyssa for doing make-up and hair.

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.
