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:
- Landgoed Groenendaal
- Oude Slot Heemstede
- Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg
- De Lichtfabriek
- Fort Zuid
- MAF (Centraal Station!)
- Parnassia Aan Zee
- San Blas
- Beachclub No 5

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.
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.
