Getting married in Haarlem
Wedding photographer from Haarlem
As a wedding photographer from Haarlem, I know the city and its surroundings like no other. It feels like a wonderful 'game on home turf' when I can capture another wedding in Haarlem or the surrounding villages such as Bloemendaal, Heemstede or Zandvoort. Capturing a wedding day in this city is very special to me. Not only because of the rich history of the city, the beautiful city hall and the cosy atmosphere but also because of the great environment surrounding Haarlem such as the beach, the dunes and the fantastic old mansions and castles. I know where to find great locations for stunning wedding portraits in the city, but also definitely know my way around the outside of the city in the many national parks, natural areas and the beach to create artistic wedding photos. I like to use the environment to my advantage in my wedding photography and Haarlem is a great city to use as a backdrop to give the journalistic and creative wedding photos that extra bit of character.

Beautiful wedding locations in Haarlem
I and my wife Roxy got married at Orangerie Elswout, a fantastic wedding location in a fairytale environment. But that is by no means the only great wedding location in the neighbourhood of Haarlem. There are many castles and mansions, industrial locations and by only a 15-minute drive away, you can even get married on the beach.
These are (besides the Orangerie of course) some of my favourite wedding locations in the Haarlem area:

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.
Experiences of other wedding couples
"Great photographer to work with, a true artist with an eye for detail! Very happy that we ended up with Bart. If we would do it again, we would definitely choose him again!"
"Bart was our wedding photographer and we think he did an amazing job! The pictures he delivered are incredibly beautiful and creative and far exceeded our expectations."
"Bart took fantastic photos of our wedding. He was present all day, but always discreet and in the background and never invasive, which allowed him to capture many beautiful moments."
