Getting married in Bloemendaal

Wedding photographer from Bloemendaal

Bloemendaal is a beautiful village with amazing houses and it is close to stunning natural parks where the breathtaking views guarantee great wedding photos. The beach is always an option for a beach wedding and the larger city of Haarlem also offers plenty of options to get married. Also, the area around Bloemendaal has some of the most beautiful country houses and castles in the Netherlands. Beautiful historical places where it feels like you are taking a trip back in time as soon as you enter the estate. It is not without reason that I myself got married myself at Orangerie Elswout, a beautiful old-fashioned greenhouse on a huge estate with beautiful nature, a country house, stables and yes, deers!
Bloemendaal was chosen in 2019 as the third best town in the Netherlands to live in. So it is not surprising that getting married in this area is also very popular. As a wedding photographer from Haarlem I often get the honor of capturing weddings in this area. Of all the beautiful places here in this region, Bloemendaal is the icing on the cake. It's hard to argue that when you look at the image below, the place where Fabiënne and Robbert did the preparations for their wedding.

This is me

In short, I am a creative person who loves life, my family / friends and my camera-shy cat (as seen in the photo), 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

What makes my wedding photography unique?

Many photographers will claim to be the best, but are they the best for you as a wedding couple? Having a good healthy relationship and chemistry with your photographer is very important, you need to feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition to that feeling, the complete package is extremely important and after searching for a few wedding photographers, you will notice that photographing a wedding is actually so much more than just taking pictures.
In my case, it is the quality, creativity and personal approach that make me unique. With these 3 core values, I guarantee all my clients an amazing series of beautiful wedding photos that will make them relive their wedding over and over again.

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. If you are curious about what I mean with this 'test', you're welcome to request my brochure.

Storytelling wedding photography

My way of working

The purpose of my photography is to provide a tangible memory of the most beautiful day of your life, your wedding. It's all about the complete experience, from the first introduction to the delivery of the album. And believe it or not, this ,strangely enough, starts with you. Of course, you will first have to contact me actively, but as soon as we get to know each other I will also have to get to know you both. That is why it is important that you open up to me. In the book '7 habits of highly effective people', Stephan R. Covey explains how important it is to see a situation from the perspective of the other person to really understand the situation. I implement this way of thinking in my work as a wedding photographer and attach great importance to getting to know my clients. Only then can I guarantee the quality, creativity and personal approach that I promise to all the wedding couples that book me.
The above is all very generic. That is why below I talk about a few concrete points that make me unique in my approach, which are important for you to know about in order to make the final decision for your wedding photographer.

MY STORY

I've been Born in Huizen, raised in Almere and I always had a strong urge to express my creativity during my childhood and teenage years. As a toddler in the 'building corner', as a child at the yearly talent show at school and in my teenage years as a drummer.

It is the drummer in me that ultimately made me start a sound engineering education at SAE Amsterdam when I was 19 years old. It later became clear how important this choice has been in my life.

Because It was at this school that I met my wife Roxy. Back then, still young and immature, we were 'recording buddies' and helped each other during the many sound recordings for our school projects. After some drum lessons and dates, we fell in love and finally moved in together in Hilversum.

A few years later in 2012, Roxy decided to start with an online fashion blog. She needed photos for this and of course, I was the one there to serve as her photographer.

Although the first few sessions were very difficult and the auto mode on camera was my friend, I really started to enjoy it after some quick photography courses. Until then, I was mostly expressing myself creatively with music, so when I noticed that I also had an eye for images, a whole new world opened up to me.
The image below was a turning point. Although not perfect (does perfection really exist?), I managed to capture a feeling here and this photo made me realize that this was the path I wanted to follow. From this moment on I have made an active effort to make photography my profession.

OUR WEDDING DAY

After a huge step and the decision to buy a house together in Haarlem at the end of 2013, we immediately expanded our family with a small hairy, but especially noisy and rowdy meow machine called Snow (As the picture above shows, Snow does not like posing for the camera).
In 2014 it was time for another big change. In Paris I asked Roxy to marry me (The city where we celebrated our first vacation). And like so many enthusiastic couples who just got engaged, we too immediately started preparing for the wedding.

Our priorities were clear fairly quickly too. So we immediately went looking for the wedding location and made our decision immediately on our first visit. We are no doubters, if it feels good right away, why not?
Immediately afterwards, the photographer and videographer were also an easy choice for us and there was no doubt that they too were going to yrll out story in a fantastic and beautiful way.
With the most important things out of the way, it was now mostly details to take care of. That sounds like a simple job, but there is still a lot to do; flowers, the suit, the wedding dress, the cake, day planning, witnesses, invitations and so on.
A lot to be arranged within a year, but the busiest period were the last 3 months before the wedding. I had planned to provide the entertainment at my wedding and I asked my 3 best friends and band members to perform with me on that special day. The result was 3 months of band practise in the rehearsal room to prepare for our first-ever performance at my wedding.

The evening before the wedding we've planned time to do a shoot with just the two of us. The reason for this was that we did not have to spend a very long time on the wedding day itself for the photos. Of course, I was only allowed to see the dress the next day, so Roxy had decided to put on her party dress for the pre-wedding shoot.
Like almost every groom, I did not like to pose, but this turned out to be unnecessary. It was more like a walk in the park around our wedding location and I honestly enjoyed it very much.

And then it was finally time; 17/06/2015, our wedding day. Thanks to the great preparation, everything went smoothly and the photoshoot during the day was still fun to do. Now it also turned out that Roxy had been busy the months before our wedding because she had spend a lot of time with a group of friends to rehearse a dance. At the wedding party it was a complete suprise when she all of a sudden started a choreographed dance for me with this great group of people. It also turned out that rehersal with the band was time well spent. Never before had the owners of the wedding venue seen a band that had the groom as their drummer. Our first performance together was a great success.
And that is exactly what we wanted, a wedding that showed our personality, made our own with personal things and creativity. It was really the most beautiful day of our lives and thanks to the photos we will never forget about this extremely special day.
