How do you photograph weddings?

I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. On your wedding day, all I want to capture are the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments, and all the details that make your wedding unique. I use two cameras at the same time to be as functional as I can be!

Where are you based and do you travel?

I am based in Rotterdam and yes, I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come because I love to combine traveling and photography.

Do you do introductory meetings?

As a wedding photographer I experience important and intimate moments, and this while being a 'stranger'. To photograph these moments I want you to feel comfortable with me, so I can photograph your day in the best possible way. That's why I propose to meet each other beforehand, so we can explore our connection from both sides. When you have your wedding date I can check my availability. I would be happy to visit you if you live in Rotterdam or the surrounding area. Otherwise, you are very welcome for an introductory meeting at my home in Rotterdam West.

What is your plan of action?

1. Introductory meeting
During a conversation, I would like to get to know you better, and I can tell you everything about my photography and approach. I would also like to hear more about you, your plans for the wedding and your wishes regarding photography.
2. Deposit
I ask for a 30% deposit of the total price as a down payment. As soon as it is paid, you have officially booked me for your wedding day.
3. Contact moments
If you decide that I can become your wedding photographer, we will have one more contact before the wedding about the day's schedule and your wishes for the photos.
4. The wedding day!
During the day my photography style is characterized by capturing emotion and the contact between people. I move in the background to capture the big and small moments and connect with you and your guests in an accessible way.
5. (Online) photo album
Three to 4 weeks after your wedding, you will receive + - 320 optimized and edited photos on an online page. (depending on the number of hours) This page is protected with a password. Included in the price is a mini-album of 15x15cm, this album is a little extra, as a thank you for letting me photograph your day. The layout/choice of the photos is done entirely by myself. In consultation with you, I would like to make a luxury wedding album of your choice. with a selection that you make of the photos. If you are interested in this, I can show you what the possibilities are during the introduction.

When will we get our photos?

You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a maximum of 5 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!

How many photos will we receive?

For a 8 hours coverage wedding, you will receive between around 320 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity so I can ensure 100% satisfaction

What is process after the wedding?

I select and edit the photos at my own discretion, while always making sure to keep the quality optimal. I take out shots that are not necessary, for example where the eyes are closed or double shots. Within 4 weeks you receive a link to your personalized and password-protected page. This is an online gallery, easily shared with friends and family. After the full payment, the photos can be downloaded with a download code.

Do you retouch your photos?

I use color and light to edit my photos to really make them alive. I love doing this! I don't retouch/edit wrinkles or soften skins, etc. I believe this kind of image manipulation doesn't belong in the work I make. Life experiences shape the character, and the small imperfections are what make us beautiful, so in the future, I believe we would love to have memories of them!

Do you charge a deposit?

Yes, I charge 30% of the complete amount before. When this is paid I am officially booked.
