Wedding photographer Utrecht

Who wouldn't want to get married in the Dom city? And as one of the most central cities in the Netherlands, Utrecht is also very practical to get married when many wedding guests from all over the country are invited. The city centre has beautiful historic character and there are countless wedding locations to organize your wedding. But there is also a lot of wedding locations in the province of Utrecht. Do you like castles and mansions? Then the province of Utrecht is ideal to search for your wedding location.
And although I am a wedding photographer from Haarlem, Utrecht also has a special place in my heart. Because I also love big castles and old mansions. At those locations, you immediately get the feeling that you have stepped into a time machine and that is very inspiring for extravagant wedding photos!

Beautiful wedding locations in and near Utrecht

A lot of possibilities in terms of wedding locations in Utrecht.

The city of Utrecht itself is also very cool to make some wedding photos. It is never boring and on every street corner, there is an opportunity for a wedding photo with a great backdrop.

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

Products

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

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.

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.

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!

Print your photos!
The purpose of my photography is to tell the story of your wedding day. Printing photos is the ultimate way to keep telling this story. That's why I always deliver an album and a print. Not hidden somewhere on the computer, but a product that can be viewed at any time so you can keep bringing back memories about the best day of your lives.

wedding album

Most people only marry once. That means that there is only one day in your life when everything comes together and where both of you look your best. The day when friends and family are present especially and only for you, express their emotions and are there to celebrate your love. A day full of traditions and events that only occur at weddings.
The dress, the rings, the first look, saying yes, the vows, the kiss, the preparation, the nerves, the cutting of the cake, the cosiness, the love, togetherness, the first dance, crazy moments and proud parents. Just a few things that happen at your wedding and that you want to remember for the rest of your lives.

The best way to keep those memories as clear as possible is through a luxurious wedding album. A tangible product, completely personalized and always on the coffee table so that you can grab the album at any time.

Trouwfotografie album voorbeeld

A wedding album is always part of my service because I honestly believe it is extremely important that the photos are viewed and the story is told again and again. There are plenty of options when it comes to cover materials, photo paper and album types. Is 30x20 cm and 30 pages not big and thick enough for you? No problem, you can always choose to upgrade the album to a larger version with more pages.

Designing the album is included in the price and also the use of the portal to view and approve your design is part of the total package.

Prints

I would like to show you how valuable it is to also print your photos in large format, which is why you always get one A3 print of choice. I print these myself on Canon professional Luster photo paper. This type of paper has great quality with a light grain and a mild gloss, perfect for the kind of colourful and contrast-rich photos that my style is known for.

Extra prints can always be ordered as well. I offer different sizes so that a photo fits in every room and every frame. Because the taste for a frame is very personal and has to go with the interior, I leave that choice to you both. Only keep in mind the size of the frame and ensure that your print fits nicely. I can always advise abvout the size of your print, just ask!
And as you know, prints can also be viewed via the portal. Choose a size and hang it in one of the digital rooms to get an idea of ​​the size and feel of the print on the wall.
