So, when you get married in a church like this, you have to have a photo of the ceiling right?

Aaaaah, this was one of the best weddings I've shot to date. This gorgeous gown for one, and then Den Haag & Voorburg as a backdrop and an amazing amount of love and laughter. Sign me up for many more, please.β € β € What makes a wedding a success for you? Is it the people, the food, the activities?

I feel one of the perks of being a female wedding photographer is getting to see aaall of those amazing dresses. When I photographed Jing and Vincent's wedding at @duinkruidberg I immediately fell for her gown. So pretty <3 β € β € What's the best thing about the work you do?β € β € //β € β € #happyphotographer​ ​ #fineartweddingphotographer​ #amsterdamweddingphotographer #europeanweddingphotographer​ ​ #destinationweddingphotographer​​ ​ #fineartwedding​ ​ #bruidsfotograaf #bruidsfotografie​ #forthisromance #weddingsparrow #bridalmusings #smpweddings​ ​ #theprettyblog #preppilyeverafter #bajanwed​ #girlsofhonour ​ #fineartbride #marthastewartweddings #ruffledworthy​ ​ #magnoliarouge​ #greenweddingshoes​​​ ​ #bruiloftinspiratie #ikgatrouwen #trouwenin2018​ ​ #thebridestory​ #shesaidyes #soloverly​​ ​ #loveintentionally​ ​ #chasinglight #pursuepretty​⠀ at Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg

This is why I love estates. Everything is nicely groomed and looked after. Every detail works. Like this beautiful park bench that is obviously so much more than just your average park bench.

These details are what makes a location. I feel like when you're looking for your dream wedding location you should also pay attention to what's already there. No amount of decoration makes up for what is naturally part of a building already. Like these gorgeous floor tiles.

Happy Monday everyone!

Yaaaay, I literally cannot wait to start creating gift packages for all my couples again!

I know I don't share them often on Instagram, but family photos are so important. To have a memory of your favorite people and the love that you share, to freeze a moment in time to be forever looked back on for generations to come: I just cannot express it enough. β € β € Now that I have a family of my own I've come to understand the importance even more. Hugo is growing so fast and looking back on images from a little while ago just makes me see it. See how he's changing and how valuable it is to have captured all of those phases. I can't wait to get some family shots on our wedding later this year and then solemnly swear to take family photos each year afterward.β € β € Do you ever step in front of the camera for a photoshoot?β € β € //β € β € #happyphotographer #familyshoot #familiefotografie #gezinsfotografie #familyphotographer #lifeandlensigfeature #thelifestylecollective #newborn #newbornphotoshoot #newbornphotographer #amsterdamphotographer #clicknmoms #lemonadeandlenses #familyphotographyworkshop #gezinsfotografieworkshop #momentdesign #familysession #letthembelittle #letthekids #humansofjoy #theprettyblog #darlingmovementβ € at Zuid-Kennemerland National Park

Can I just declare my undying love for this city once again? I LOVE Amsterdam. So many classic backdrops and such beautiful light. Getting married in our capital?

I love this little chapel. Beats most town halls, right?! β € β € I wonder what drives people to go for an actual wedding location or town hall. Where did you get married?

Happy Monday everybody! I have a week off work this week. Well, off sessions and weddings anyway. I'm currently toying with the idea of starting a Wedding Photography Workshop. It'd be so cool to teach other photographers all about how I capture a wedding from start to finish. β € β € Who would be interested? And what would be a MUST learn?β € β € //β € β € #happyphotographer​ ​ #fineartweddingphotographer​ #amsterdamweddingphotographer #europeanweddingphotographer​ ​ #destinationweddingphotographer​​ ​ #fineartwedding​ ​ #bruidsfotograaf #bruidsfotografie​ #forthisromance #weddingsparrow #bridalmusings #smpweddings​ ​ #theprettyblog #preppilyeverafter #bajanwed​ #girlsofhonour ​ #fineartbride #marthastewartweddings #ruffledworthy​ ​ #magnoliarouge​ #greenweddingshoes​​​ ​ #bruiloftinspiratie #ikgatrouwen #trouwenin2018​ ​ #thebridestory​ #shesaidyes #soloverly​​ ​ #loveintentionally​ ​ #chasinglight #pursuepretty​ at Haarlem, Netherlands

It matters where you get dressed on your wedding day. Who would prefer a bedroom with a big IKEA wardrobe (come on, you know we all have them right? ;-)) in the background over this? I rest my case.β € β € It is totally okay to book a hotelroom for your big day or move to your living room if it's brighter, bigger and prettier. Nobody says you can't! β € β € //β € β € #happyphotographer​ ​ #fineartweddingphotographer​ #amsterdamweddingphotographer #europeanweddingphotographer​ ​ #destinationweddingphotographer​​ ​ #fineartwedding​ ​ #bruidsfotograaf #bruidsfotografie​ #forthisromance #weddingsparrow #bridalmusings #smpweddings​ ​ #theprettyblog #preppilyeverafter #bajanwed​ #girlsofhonour ​ #fineartbride #marthastewartweddings #ruffledworthy​ ​ #magnoliarouge​ #greenweddingshoes​​​ ​ #bruiloftinspiratie #ikgatrouwen #trouwenin2018​ ​ #thebridestory​ #shesaidyes #soloverly​​ ​ #loveintentionally​ ​ #chasinglight #pursuepretty​ at Amsterdam, Netherlands
