Darling and Katherine contact me via one of her friends. They are Dominicans but they live at Rhode Island, Boston. They really wants pictures extremely different, they wants to have the perfect combinations between love, color and dramatic scenes. We pick New Port area to make they photo shoot. We wake up at 4am in the morning in order to have a wonderful sunrise in that area. One hour drive and the magic started. We really have the most lovely, colorful sunrise for them. The dreams came true.
This photo was taken at Valentina & Daniel's wedding in an Italian castle located in Lake Maggiore, which was their wedding venue. As soon as we arrived, we were having a cocktail party just outside this door. As soon as I saw this amazing golden light I asked them to briefly stop in the middle of the doorframe and I took this photo. This is my favorite portrait from their wedding! Such gorgeous light & architecture!
In the little old village Buren (Netherlands) the couple and I were looking for old walls and doors. This was one beautiful one. Suddenly the sun came trough and the light and everything changed. So, let's capture that! Just the way they're standing. I love silhouets and shadows, because you can see where the light is coming from.
Marc and Lorena wedding, a couple that I will always remember with their lovely daughter.
In the delivering of the bride bouquete, no one could imagine that their shy daughter would be the first to take over the bouquet, is the perfect time of the photo, in the right angle, one second earlir or one second later I couldn’t have taken the photo, it’s a pleasure to capture these memories in photographs.
It rained the day before. It rained the day after. But on their big day, Magic was all around. Love was like an electric mist. Happiness came like a tsunami.
I shot that particular moment at the end of the day, and it was a matter of 5 minutes or less. Both the bride and groom are photographers. And as photographers we all know that shooting photographers is a challenge. I am like them, maybe you are too: photographers don't like being shot.
But after all, the bride told me: "You know, I said we wanted the romantic shots to be really quick and minimal. But his was the most magical moment of the day, and the only time we got to spend together just he two of us, like we were alone on this planet." I guess that feeling really shows in the picture.
As Lao Tzu once said:" Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it." In this abstract style photograph, Haley-Kate – an Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader, and Rafael – a Brazilian soccer player could not resist showing their relationship behind a wall of flowing water. Love is so wonderful!
At recent wedding at Brandhatch Hotel, we managed to sneak the bride & groom out at sunset, set a light up behind the couple and tried to balance the sunset above the building, trees with the flash light. With the aim to produce a stunning WOW shot for the couple. Hopefully we pulled it off.
Who doesn't love a beautiful sunset! I invited Helen & John out just after their first dance - perfect timing as it gave them the ideal moment to cool off and take some time in together. I saw the most sensational sky peeking between 2 trees and immediately knew how my picture would go down. Helen & John have a legitimate soulful connection, and all that was required was to put them together in the same spot - the rest as they say 'is history'. This is the moment just before they kissed - a moment that will stay with me for a long time.
This picture was taken in Heilo, Netherlands
This couple does to rock and roll and that she wanted to show back in their reportage. We went to the salvation primeval forest and looked a nice open area where they did various elements of rock and roll for the report
Normally I'm doing my shoots in the morning, but we decided to do it at the end of the afternoon this time. And that was a good decision. We were so lucky that the sun was shining this way. It was only a couple of minutes so we had to hurry. As we walked to the place the sun was shining the most I shot a couple of photos already cause I thought it could disappear in a second. And it did when we got there. So i guess what they say is true: 'Sometimes the road is more important than the destination. ;-)
Location: Landgoed Waterland, Velsen Holland

We were photographing Sarah + Mark for their pre wedding photo shoot. They asked if we could head to their favourite beach. It was a gorgeous afternoon, but the sky was pristine clear. Our couple were hoping for some clouds and a beautiful sunset. The sunset wasn’t too special so after a couple of shots we headed back to the car park. When we turned around there was an amazing glow in the sky, we quickly set up a couple of flashes on the ground behind our couple for some backlighting, had them stand under a little tree and captured this image. Our couple were so happy with this last shot we captured - and, so were we!
I am a Dutch photographer. Mostly doing photoshoots like love and wedding.
Last summer I went on a holliday to Italy. A personal holliday with my husband and daughter.
And when I was on there, a couple wrote to me that they wanted a loveshoot made by me.
So I went to a small town called Borgo Valsugana (area Trentino) Italy and
I met this gorgues couple, Andreea & Alex, who were dressed to kill!
At first I thought they did photoshoot like this before. But she told me this was the first time she even went in front of the camera.
Do you noticed? I don’t! But I like it!
Not shy, cute and really in to each other and the love!
I asked the couple to come out for a picture under a tree, then returning to the venue thought there might be another shot here. A really simple backlight and some fairy lights added in post made it a cracker but it was hard work with the camera hunting for focus in the dark. Within a couple of minutes we were quite wet, so hats off to the bride and groom for putting up with it even though she said she was loving the cool rain!!
The love this couple has for each other is truly inspiring. They are living apart separated by the Pacific Ocean because their work is so fulfilling, but they manage to remain as close as ever. This shot captures their brightness with a nod to how they seriously will cross oceans to be together.
