Our philosophy is that you matter - in every way possible. What matters the most to you - your children, your family, your marriage or your event is what gets captured by the image and is what will stay behind over the years. Not any photo opportunity will ever be the same, and no moment ever comes back. So over time, we want you to look back at these pictures that matter so much to you, and will have made sure they are the best memory you could possibly get.
In a very charming little church in Spain, when the beautiful ceremony was taking place, this cute little girl peeked through the doors and I couldn't resist capturing this spontaneous shot of her.
When all bridesmaids have matching hats with their names engraved... You GOT to have a shot like this!
Follow the light - nothing beats the pursuit of light as a photographer.
Top-down shots mean so much more than just shooting the drone.. I saw the couple walking down the stairs right after their civil wedding and saw the golden opportunity of this beautiful shot from adobe.
Nothing beats the beauty of a building than the sunlight that shines through its windows.. Especially here, beauty often is hidden in its light more than it is in its architecture.
Seemingly uninteresting places can have true meaning when seen from above.. In love with the dynamics and textures of this place from the air.
Bridal mornings are hectic, full of emotions, and jam-packed with stuff to do. But amidst it all, I enjoy portraying the simple moments that make up for a full day of joy.
When brother and sister don't sleep together as one of them is with mommy and one is them is with daddy, the first look often doesn't just happen between the bride & groom, but an even cuter first look-hug between brother and sister emerges.
The pressure, the tension, the pure joy that awaits while the bride waits for her first look with the groom. Nothing in her life will beat the feeling of that moment, whilst emerging their lives forever.
Blue skies, the perfect old-timer and friends that decorated the old-timer to match your wedding day: nothing beats a perfect wedding setting like that!
Sometimes the most stunning views ask for the most effort.. Climbing for hours before the sun has even risen.. But they make it móre than worth it once you reach the top, shoot an image like this, and know your couple will have the most beautiful image imaginable remembering their wedding for the rest of their life..
When love is beautiful, and it gets even prettier when that love gets framed by the beauty of nature and its mountains.. That's the moment you know why you became a photographer in the first place.
This was an awesome moment. The groom and his groomsmen all drove like this to the church, leaving the entire town gasping the view of all of them driving by... I took my opportunity to snap a shot of this awesomeness!
Pure double exposure beauty in the pouring rain...
Overjoyous moments when exiting the church, knowing you just got married. Yes, those moments truly last a lifetime.
The beautiful ceremony and first kiss just got their extra dimension when I noticed one of the girls enjoying the moment as much or maybe ever more as them...
Sunsets on the mountains, everything me and my couples dream of ...
Sometimes images look effortless, but knowing how cold it was and how much effort it took to get here, it truly gives the images an extra dimension.
If this isn't a dream shot for most wedding couples... I don't know what is. Climbing the boats certainly wasn't easy, but the results speak for themselves!
Playing with architecture is one of my favorite things to do in drone shots... The tranquility comes to play so beautifully.
The Belgian coast offers their typical blue clouded skies and windy days, and I always enjoy it when I can capture a shot that has nothing to do with the sea, but gives me the coastal feeling anyways...
Tranquility. Beauty. Two people amidst it all, bound for life now by marriage.
Let me tell you a funny story that actually makes this image for me all the more special. The gargantuan thing hovering ominously above our couple is quite in fact a not so ordinary heater. Whilst at their feet was a dozen of chickens running around, we were allowed to create this backlit shot. To this day every time I see this image again, I can’t happen to think about those little animals running around just out of frame. It just shows how the most unexpected locations can have a wonderfully unique story behind them just hovering out of sight.
The lightning in this composition matched perfectly on the warm and bright wedding theme. Even in the most epic places, nothing beats perfect light ...
4 generations coming together on her wedding day...
The future awaits
Stairway to heaven
Lines don't divide Truly beautiful compositions and lines often symbolise more than one might realise upon first glance. They express the strong bonds between couples and the strong connection a marriage brings with it. Because as the title states: lines don’t divide.
Please save some for the wedding night! This was an amazing shot when the couple decided to be a little frisky in a vintage car. It represents a perfect moment when these two lovebirds show their love and affection in a subtle, yet obvious way.
Enlightenment - Not every wedding has to be shot and captured in the most adventurous locations, sometimes just searching around locally can bring forth places of true beauty and character. This image was shot in a local library on a very rainy day and I am still grateful for the kind librarian giving us access and in her way contributing to a memory and image like this.
Love is in the air - Love and joyous laughter is what connects us all. Without family and friends, a wedding is not what you’d want it to be. There is no stronger bond than that one that is build upon trust, love and laughter.
Elongated Nothing beats experiencing the light at a location and just knowing that you have to place your bride in it. On this wonderful day, our bride had an amazing dress giving this image a strong contrast with the dark inside of the barn. I just couldn’t help myself with capturing the scene from a distance away as the elongated beam of light just has that true expression of a story.
It isn’t every day that you have a sincere opportunity to capture an image like this. Giving everyone a glimpse into the mind of the newlyweds. Many of us have experienced this day firsthand or witnessed it close hand. But the true moment of bliss of the day itself always stays something personal something to hold dear for both of you. Cause who wouldn’t just want to sail away, just the two of you, forever?
Isn’t there any tree as iconic as a lonesome willow, beautifully illuminated against the emptiness of the night sky? Just finding this tree at the wedding venue was all I needed to see in order to bring our lovely couple back outside for that final shot of the evening. It is quite ironic that a willow stands for sadness and pain and just in front of them we see the exact opposite. A loving couple at the cusp of their future together as husband and wife, full of laughter, joy and dreams.
Some images are just meant to happen, and not all days are created equally, so it was on this beautiful day I decided to do something different: to not only focus on the story between Him and Her, but to capture the contrast between the stark sky and the groom and groomsmen, in themselves contrasted by the bride.
"Just Married" It doesn’t happen every day, getting married during these times of uncertainty and wonder … They definitely didn’t experience the joy of a regular marriage, but focussed on the single most important thing: having each other
Is there any way to capture passion more strongly and intensely as with a backdrop of fire?
