We don’t look good on images..
Don’t worry. Most couples are nervous and afraid they don’t look good on images. However professional photography is different then a snapshot taken with an iPhone. I know how to make people look beautifull. If the love between you two is present.. beautifull images will happen naturally
We don’t like to be posed
I understand exactly what you mean. Posing can feel akward and make you uncomfortable which is not my intention. During the shoot i’ll i might give a few tips and tricks on how to stand but that is it. Most important is that you have fun and then things just happen naturally
Can you present a slideshow of some pictures in the evening?
Yes. When there is a quiet moment (example during the dinner) i can select & post process around 50-80 images of the day. These can be show in a slideshow after dinner.
How long does it take before we receive our images ?
After the wedding it takes 3-4 weeks before the images are ready. All images are professionaly post processed and deliverd on DVD in high resolution jpg format
How many images do you deliver of our wedding ?
It is hard to give an exact number because every wedding is different. Offcourse it also depends on how many hours i’m hired. For me the most important thing is that you get beautifull images of all important moments. But to give an idea. For a wedding of 6 hours i typically deliver around 300-350 images
Are these all images, or do we receive a selection ?
Offcourse a selection will be made. Some images might be unsharp or somebody might just walked in front on my camera while i took a picture. Or someone may look funny or have his/her eyes closed. Those kind of images are filtered out, but all other images will be delivered
Will the images receive post-processing?
My goal is always to capture each image perfect in camera and don’t use extensive photoshop to enhance a mediocre photo. However every image gets post processed to give them that litte bit extra !
Can we select which images will be used for the wedding album?
Offcourse.. It is your wedding album! I always make the first design which you receive by e-mail as PDF. From here you can tell me what you want to have changed. The album will go in production only when you are 100% happy with the design
We would like to create our own wedding album, is this possible ?

Do you only work in the Netherlands ?
No. I’m available for local and international weddings
How long should we plan for the photoshoot ?
Preferably 1 a 2 hours exclusive travel time between locations. The photoshoot is the only time during the day you have some time for yourself. A perfect oppertunity to relax so i advise to take your time . Also i advise multiple shooting locations if possible. Do keep in mind the travel time between locations
Do we need to supply a lunch/dinner ?
No, i always have food & drinks with me. If you want to offer a meal then this is offcourse very appreciated. But please don’t serve me a meal of 3-4 courses. During dinner i’m often busy photographing speeches and creating the slideshow so i don’t have time for a 3-4 course dinner
