That’s why I choose to care more about the moments of connection than about perfect framing.
You will end up with photos and a film that give you goose bumps and tears rather than it just being aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
The editing will be done by me and my team. We look at every shot and select the ones that best captivate your story. If you booked fiml, music will be picked out with great care – it can take up to a day! Heart and soul goes into everything we deliver, because we want to make sure every detail is great and suiting to who you are as a couple.
This will leave you with soul-filling art that goes straight to the heart – even after the wedding day is long gone.
Per year I take on a maximum of 10 weddings. This makes me able to deliver the quality I think a Wedding Story should have – the best of the best. This means I will take generous amounts of time to get to know you as a couple and make sure your photos and/or film convey who you are.
You can book me for either filming or photography, or combined!
As you have probably noticed my photos and films are different than most. I think composition is important, but not nearly as important as connection. One can create the most beautifully framed shots that don’t really convey anything. That’s exactly what I do not want for you.
curious what I can do for you?
When booking me, you always get a second shooter:
my very own husband!
There's nothing like an experienced husband-and-wife team. We know each other through and through and work together well to create the best of the best for you. If you don't like having a second shooter, he won't hold a camera in his hand and instead help me do all things outside of shooting. That helps me focus even more on you and your wedding.
I'm specialised in destination weddings. I've shot weddings from Scotland and Italy, to France, Germany, New Zealand and Australia. Chinese tea ceremonies, dragon dances, Malaysian toasts and Nigerian parties: there's little chance I don't know your culture. Let me know your wishes and we'll make sure to create a memory for you to never forget!
Of course. I want to make sure the result is completely you! That’s why there’s one round of feedback included. If you want more changes after the second version, we will be charging more hours.
Can we give feedback after we receive the result?
The Wedding Films I make are 5-7 minutes long. Over the years I have found this to be the ultimate length to tell a story in a way that’s not too short, yet holds your attention and brings tears to your eyes. The 5-7 minute film is our absolute strength.
As for photos, quality always goed before quantity, but you can sleep safe and sound knowing that there will be at least 50 photos per hour I was present on your big day.
What's the lengt of the film? Or the amound of photos?
I'm somewhere in between a guest and a fly on the wall. And not only am I your video/photographer. I have experiences over 100 weddings and know everything there is to know about them – I can help you with your dress or bow tie, tell when you’re stressed and calm you down or offer help when your dress and the toilet aren't a friendly combination. Anything you need!
I am known for being unobtrusive: you will get used to me and my camera easily – remember I always capture people that are not used to/comfortable with being in front of a camera! I know when to step forward and when to step back. Unless I see you get uncomfortable or awkward, I will not pose you during the shoot. What I will do is give you guidelines to feel at ease until you stop noticing I’m around.
How do you behave while capturing a wedding?
Yes you can! You can book me for only film or photo, but I would highly recommend booking me for both. This gives a cohesive end result for both photo and video. I work together with the best photographers - one of them being my husband - that know my style who will come with me to photograph the wedding. Then the editing will be done by me. It not only makes the style of photos and the video cohesive, it will also ensure a good cooperation between the photographer and videographer so we can both do our work in the best way possible.
Can we book you for both photo and film?
Those are my specialisation! I have shot weddings in France, Italy, New Zealand and Australia.
Do you do destination weddings?
The weddings where I can serve you best are non-traditional and completely you. I love the couples that dare to be different. The couples that get married outside in winter, or barefoot in their backyard with chickens running around. But most importantly, my favorite kind of couple is the one who goes for quality and connection.
What is your favourite kind of wedding to capture?

Feel free to contact me
Definitely! The first time I saw my photos in print I got a whole new view of my photos – can you believe it? I couldn’t. Photos come to live when you hold them in your own hands.
I order my albums at Dutch Ink Albums. This is a company that does everything by hand to ensure the best quality.
Can we order photo albums with you?
When it comes to music, I ask you to trust me completely. I will definitely take your favourite music style into account – but I think a videographer should always do that.
Without music almost any film completely falls apart and I can spend up to a day choosing the right music. I get a lot of couples that are in the music industry and they always love the outcome! And of course, if you don’t like the music after receiving the film, we’ll try something else.
Music is super important to us, do we have influence on what music you use?
Photos are delivered within two months and a wedding film within three months. And to help your excitement you’ll receive previews and teasers within the first week after your wedding already.
How long does it take until the product is delivered?
Yes you can! It is possible to book a 20-minute documentary film as an add-on to the package.
Can I get a longer film?
