Studio Name

KayPhoto4u Personal Art

KayPhoto4u Personal Art Wedding Photography is based in The Netherlands. Established in the mid-'00s by Karin Heinen it has ever since developed a well-appreciated name in the wedding biz. A team of 4 professionals with a drive to create an alternative view on traditional standards. Their motto 'Personal Art Wedding' stands for a rare & unique approach that frees this team of being held back to one particular photographic style.

With every new assignment a personalized approach to the marrying couple is developed, taking their wishes and making them come true in handmade photographic digital filters that do not only fit the 'story of the day', but even the very chapters of the wedding day.

Every story gets a tangible result such as an album, high-quality prints, a unique photo box and/or outstanding wall decorations.

Winning photos

For this great guy who bashes the gym on a daily base the wedding shoot was something to look up to. "I don't like to be in photographs", he said. By connecting the dots between his hobby and his challenging remark a nice romantic shot like this was the result. The scenery is a typical Dutch dune & heather park that can be found here and there in The Netherlands.

111th Collection

This shot was actually shot at the end of the ceremony while leaving the scene. The master of ceremony who just wedded the couple is giving a consenting last look. The venue is an not widely known, tiny church in Amersfoort NL.

111th Collection

As anonymous as some cities may seem, this picture oozes Amsterdam through every pixel. And although seen from the back it does the same regarding this fun couple on their way to the ceremony. Another big thanks to Wedisson for your recognition. We are honored and proud as always!

109th Collection

For this photoshoot with C&J we went to SIMei, an amazing site of industrial heritage in the Netherlands. They were absolute naturals and they felt totally at ease. That gave us the opportunity to really capture the essence of them as a couple. Resulting in some amazing cinematic images.

107th Collection

A grotesque setting in a small place. This museum, founded in 1784 a.d., is home to an impressive historical collection of Art and Science. It's renowned library is only rarely open to the public, so we were really excited to have a possibility to do some shots here with M&B on their wedding day. The fun this sweet couple had in this place, which has such a great meaning to them, turned out to be a delightful touch in the pictures we made.

A big thanks to Wedisson for their recognition. Proud to be part of the tribe!

106th Collection

For this couple their wedding was all about sharing the day with their loved ones and family. They didn't even want to take photos with just the two of them. Their only wish was to take a few photos near the tall sequoia trees. All in all, their love for each other tells a story on its own in this photo. We're so grateful to have captured it for them. A great thank you, again, to Wedisson for recognizing.

104th Collection

This shot is taken around Villa Oud-Groevenbeek in the area of Ermelo (NL). A hidden gem in regard of great settings for a wedding shoot. On a hot day in June 24 we had the honors to join E&W on their super chill and oozing wedding day. The Estate Groevenbeek offers a lot of overwhelming backgrounds, but when we entered this over 100 year old grape greenhouse there was no doubt what to do here. Classic pose of one of the sweetest couples we ever met. Much obliged!

103rd Collection

The day before their wedding we contacted this couple as they still hadn't figured out where they wanted to have the photoshoot.

Previous tips we gave didn't made it. But we had on our bucket list this historical location and as soon as they saw it in real life, they became pretty excited. We figured out when the old steam train would arrive at the station and exact at that moment, with the steam coming out, we took these pictures...

102nd Collection

This lovely couple had their first look at this bridge above the waterfall. When walking towards it with the groom, I just knew I had to create this picture for them. As they both really love natural water and it has a special meaning to them. Thank you for recognizing it and awarding us for it.

100th Collection

O&V celebrated their wedding at one of the most unique and exclusive wedding venues in the Netherlands. The grand hallway provides a classic stairway and looking up from the ground level the majestic painting of the ceiling is overwhelming. This upward view alongside the veil and the intense moment of the wedding couple resulted in this shot.

98th Collection

A wedding on a partly cloudy day. The anticipated local spot (where we aimed to photograph the wedding photo's of this fun and super friendly couple) turned into a wasteland two days before the wedding. Nevertheless B&H kept up the good mood and this picture is perfect proof of it. Thanks to Wedisson for their recognition!

98th Collection

We truly love making the big pictures of a wedding couple in a great scenery. Nevertheless greatness sometimes hides in a split second, at an 'ordinary' moment during the wedding day, such as the family & friends portraits. Richie and Iris are fantastic posers and the bridesmaids loved to play along in this fun moment. Thanks to Wedisson for the recognition and this appreciated award!

94th Collection

This great couples loves nature almost as much as they love each other. The photoshoot at Fort Vechten was filled with fun, laughter and doing things out of the ordinary.

When we came across a few huge tree stumps, we knew right away we had to use those for a setting. So together we created something that really represents them as a couple: playful, loving, and a very tall groom.

Thank you for this 25th Weddison win. Much appreciated!

92nd Collection

Klundert is a small medieval fortified city in the Southwest of The Netherlands. A great setting for a small personal toast of Jenny and Richard, who got married in the tail of May 2022. Since their wedding day had been postponed due to the pandemic, the relief and joy were huge when their big day finally arrived. We think this shot is a fine reflection of all these 'bottled up' emotions. A big thanks to Wedisson for this recognition.

91st Collection

We gathered all the fun & joy of this lovely couple in this great group portrait. It's a first actually. We all know this pose with either just the groom or just the bride. Carried by all your friends. This sure means something, some kind of social safety net. Thanks Wedisson. Happy to be part of the family!

88th Collection

In the great gardens of Castle Rosendael (Area of Arnhem, NL) you find multiple scenic spots to shoot your shots. This old wall is kind of a hidden gem one easily walks by. Thanks to our teammember Priscilla we did not walk on without taking some shots of 'Master of Ease' Orlando and his beautiful bride Ilona, early june 2022. We think the depth in the picture worked out great and the detail of the crescent top of the entry has a nice charm to it. Thanks Wedisson! We are proud to be part of the Wedisson family.

87th Collection

Kasteel de Hooge Vuursche, located near Baarn (NL), is a lovely venue with a lot of great settings for remarkable wedding shots. Some obvious (like the water fountain in the front yard), but also some more hidden. This lovely couple K&D took advantage of having plenty of time for the wedding shoots. So after having checked the most obvious must-have spots of Hooge Vuursche, we took took this funny shot at the back entrance. Thanks Wedisson! Much obliged.

86th Collection

A boy's dream of the groom ... picking up the bride with a Volkswagen T1 on his Wedding Day. Beside some nice pics outside the T1, we wanted to make something more creative. We love the wonderful look these beloved ones gave each other on that particular moment.

85th Collection

We met Nick and Samantha on a Wedding Fair back in 2020. This friendly couple immediately fell for one of the pictures we presented on the fair; A picture we were rewarded for by Wedisson back in 2018 (49 Collection). A shot which was taken from above, with a couple standing at groundlevel of a beautiful turnstair. "I really love that picture", Samantha said. "I would love to have a picture like that from me and Nick!"

So here we are, two years later, with a Wedisson rewarded shot of Nick and Sam, taken during their wedding in October 2021. A different setting, another kind of stairs, a different kind of art, but nevertheless with a comparable intensity. We are very pleased with this 19th Wedisson and even more...we are very pleased to have made Samanha's dream come true!

84th Collection

At a cool industrial spot at the former NDSM Werf (Amsterdam) Jeffrey & Danique insisted on a nice shot surrounded by colorful graffiti. Since they are big fans of our work they also said "We demand a Wedisson Award with one of our wedding photo's"...

So, here we are ;)
