Getting married at the beach

Wedding photographer beach wedding

The Netherlands has a beautiful coastline and because of this fact it's not surprising that many wedding couples choose for a wedding on the beach. Who wouldn't want such a beautiful view while you read each other your wedding vows? Often there it's alsp a great for awesome wedding photos. For example, a photo shoot in the dunes is very popular with people getting married on the beach. But there are other options as there are a number of beautiful cities within reach of our coastline. You could also capture wedding portraits in Haarlem, Leiden or The Hague, and then drive on to the coast where the ceremony will eventually take place in one of the many wedding locations on the beach.
I often get the honor to capturing weddings on the beach and I thoroughly enjoy them every time. And although the weather is always a factor to consider for your beach wedding, a little wind and maybe a heavy rain shower in the distance could make for some amazing shots. Because the weather is what makes a Dutch beach wedding so typically Dutch and after all, beautiful clouds also look great in photos!

Beautiful locations for your beach wedding

The Dutch coastline is no less than 450 km long, so there are also plenty of wedding locations on the beach that are perfect for you to plan your wedding. For example, you can choose for a beach wedding a little closer to the south near The Hague and Leiden, or perhaps a little more north towards Haarlem and Alkmaar.
There is lots of choice and I would like to tell you what some of my favorite wedding locations are on our beautiful Dutch coastline:

This is me

In short, I am a creative person who loves life, my family / friends and my cat, Snow. I love sports and can regularly be found on the mat for some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or in the dunes and even the Alps to race off the most beautiful trails with my mountain bike. I travel a lot and also like to photograph in my spare time. Also, I spend a lot of time with my wife Roxy and I am a bit of a geek, who, in addition to playing video games and reading books, also loves the technical side of photography.
I have always had a creative side and that was expressed during my teens by playing the drums. It was the love of drums and music in general that made me decide to study sound engineering when I finished high school. During this study, I met my wife Roxy. She was the one who started her fashion blog after a few years of dating and stuffed a camera in my hands to take pictures for her. A photographer was born.

Quality, creativity and a personal approach

How I work

I've got one goal when it comes to photographing your wedding: Making sure you've got an amazing wedding without a care in the world, with the guarantee of a beautiful series of wedding photos for you to enjoy for years to come.

This will start from the moment we meet where we not only get to know each other, but also talk through all your wishes for the wedding photography. In addition, you get access to the online portal, a modern tool where I will share all wedding photos in an online gallery, but also a handy tool where you can share the planning of the day and digitally look through and approve your wedding album. Finally, I only deliver photography product of the highest quality, to ensure that even decades after the wedding your can still relive your wedding day to it's fullest.

Work Method

A personal approach and an informal atmosphere are very important to me.

Online portal

I use the most modern tools for a fantastic experience and smooth communication.


Photos come into their own in a beautiful album or as a print on the wall.

Quality of my photography

When I talk about quality, I mean the complete package of my service as a wedding photographer. These are of course the photos, which are captured with professional cameras and the best lenses. The post-processing of the photos in a colourful and high-contrast way so that they really stand out. But you also see it in the products I offer. I only supply top of the line products, all my albums are handmade, I produce prints up to A2 size myself and all my customers get access to their very own online portal with online gallery included.

Creativity in the wedding photos themselves

Photography is an art form and it is therefore important to view situations from multiple points of view. It is about the story of the wedding day and the way the story is being told in a series of powerful photographs. Creatively capturing those beautiful moments and small details during the wedding, that's how I distinguish myself as a wedding photographer. Just go through my portfolio and you will immediately see what I mean by this.

A personal approach that's shown throughout my service

In my brochure, I have added a part of why this personal approach in wedding photography is so important. A fun test shows you why I would like to get to know you and why a good conversation to get to know you as a couple is vital to my work as a wedding photographer.

Personal approach
The choice for your photographer is a very personal one. In addition to the photographic style, the character and values ​​of the photographer are one of the most important criteria for making your choice. When I hire someone, I like a personal approach where communication and quality is of a high standard. It is for that reason that I also apply this method as a photographer myself.

Before the wedding

You can expect this approach from me straight away. Call me, app me or e-mail me and you can always expect a response. I can often be found on the mat, the mountain bike and photographing at other weddings, so sometimes I won't be able to respond straight away, but I will get back to you as soon as I can.

So a personal approach is very important to me and that is why I also would like to get to know you as a couple. During our introduction meeting, it is therefore mainly about you guys. I want to know everything about you, because the more I know, the better I can capture the wedding day for you.
Have a look at the photo below. I knew that the bride had a special bond with her grandfather so I was constantly looking for the right time to capture that bond. This has become one of the most important photos for this bride.

Of course, we will also talk about the planning and how photography, and especially the portraits, can best be fitted into the schedule of your busy wedding day. I have all sorts of practical tips which you can use for your wedding. I would simply like to hear everything about the wedding day so together we can also make the photos to a great success.

You'll also get access to the online portal. Everything about our collaboration ends up in this online environment. During our introduction meeting, I can explain everything about the online portal.

In addition, you can always contact me during the preparations for questions or tips. Changes to the schedule can be communicated through the portal, I will see any changes you make instantly.
Shortly before the wedding we will schedule a call to go through all the details for the last time to make sure that I am aware of everything that will happen during your wedding day. And then the time has finally come!

Finally! After such a long time the special day has is finally there. You will be able to enjoy this day undisturbed. Me and everybody else who is involved in the organization of the wedding will make sure of that. It is for that reason that I always maintain close contact with the ceremony master and other people involved in the wedding to keep the organization as tight as possible.

At the wedding, I am invisible when needed but present when necessary. For example, I will often work more in the background during the ceremony, but when taking a group shot of all the guests I will make sure everybody is visible and direct them accordingly. During the party, I will be partying with you on the dance floor. I can get much closer and people open up much more when I am part of the crowd, resulting in the best possible party photos.
Not in the mood for uncomfortable poses during the portrait shoot? Fortunately, me neither!
Think of this shoot as a nice walk in the park which I will capture in the most beautiful way. I will of course 'direct' you here and there to get the most best results, but I like movement in my photos, so I would encourage you to do whatever you feel like. Go crazy, laugh, have fun with each other and be yourself, that's how we will make sure these photos will become little pieces of art.
I will enjoy the wedding like any other guest that day. I love weddings because of their great atmosphere and happy people. I genuinely have a great time at your wedding.

After the wedding

The wedding is over, but for me, the work now really starts. After making the necessary backups, it is now up to me to ensure that all those photos are carefully selected and professionally retouched. I shoot thousands of photos in one day and not one of them will go unnoticed. I only select the very best and make sure that they ultimately come into their own in the retouching process by transforming them into my unique style.

I understand that you really can't wait to see the first photos and that's why I always make sure that a preview is ready for you in the online gallery within a week. That way the memories are still clear in your mind and you will experience all the moments again when you view the photos.
Because I pay a lot of attention to selecting and retouching, I need about 4 to 6 weeks to finally deliver all the photos to you via the online gallery. You can share the gallery with all friends and family, but you can also already start making the selection of favourites for your wedding album. When your favourites are submitted, I will design the album and finally upload the design to you again via the portal for approval. You can browse through the pages in your own time and let me know where you would like to see changes before the design is finally sent to the factory. Also, let me know which photo you would like as a print on your wall.

The delivery of the album will take a few weeks and after handing over the album and the print our collaboration will sadly be over. I would appreciate it very much if you would like to leave me some online reviews. Growth is hugely important to me and the best way to find out how my work and approach has been experienced is to ask my clients!

modern tools
Nowadays the internet is indispensable in our daily lives. Everyone owns a smartphone and is online nowadays. This is why I use the most modern tools to provide an experience for you as a wedding couple where convenience, clarity and style are paramount.

the online portal

All the couples who book me as their wedding photographer receive a complete package. This includes access to the online portal. Not only is this a very cool and handy tool for you, but it's also software that I use on a daily bases and makes sure that all my services and communication run smoothly. In addition, the portal also includes an online gallery that is easy to share with friends and family and can be used to download the high res images, so you can store them yourself. Wonder what your album will look like? The design proofing function will help you to see the design and approve it online.

The gallery

An online environment where all your photos can be seen and can be shared with all friends and family after the wedding. In short, that's the gallery.
USB sticks are already old fashion these days. Technical developments are going forward so fast that the newest laptops no longer have a USB input anyway. Everything is connected to the internet and that is why the online gallery is so enormously valuable.
It is fast, simple, looks nice and very important nowadays, it works flawlessly on all devices. Details such as security and accessibility have also been thought through and photos can even be organised into different categories. Have a look below.

Trouwfotografie galerij voorbeeld

You get exclusive digital rights to be the only one to be able to download the files in high resolution and of course without my company logo. Also, you can decide which photos can be seen by friends and family. You may find some photos a bit too personal and you don't necessarily want to share them, you can easily hide these photos from others who visit the gallery.
The gallery also contains useful functions to select your favourites. This feature is most often used to pick your photos for the wedding album.

Are you interested in ordering prints? Then I can even create a prints gallery for you in which you can easily see what the photo looks like on the wall.

Album design

After I have received your favourite photos selection through the gallery, I will start designing the album. The layout depends on the size of the album you choose. Photos really do come into their own when they are printed in large format, so I don't recommend selecting too many photos, it will look messy very quickly.

As soon as I have finished the first design you can review it via the portal in the design proofing section. You can browse through the pages and even make notations where you would like to see adjustments. After the requested adjustments, you can approve the design and it will be sent to the producer. Below is an example of a large album 35x35 cm in which the wedding couple asks to make the text slightly smaller.

communication tools

In addition to these parts of the portal, some formalities have also been considered. There is a page that shows all different album types and materials, there are forms to share some contact details with me (for example the ceremony master or contact details of the wedding venue) and there is a very useful form in which you can fill in the planning for the wedding day so there is never a misunderstanding about the schedule. Even the invoices can be viewed and downloaded.
And the best part, it's all online and available whenever you want!
