Lisa & Marlon came all the way from Canada to get married on a boat in Amsterdam.
So happy they asked me to tag along and photograph their story :
The text on the first image, a note from A to A on their bedroom door, summarizes how we all felt that day, very welcome and part of the family :
Come on in
You don’t have to ring
I’m waiting for you
All my life (<3 and now even longer)
I can only hope you feel it too…
Until now it never hit the blog but earlier this year I won 1st place at the Belgian Wedding Photographers award. Being a wedding photographer is the best job in the world, thanks to my couples, their wonderful families and, last but not least, my amazing colleagues all over the world reaching out and keeping in touch. Thanks again to my Belgian colleagues for voting. <3
Picture from Fleur & Karel-Henk’s destination wedding in Norway.
On Saturday Melissa & Jan got married in the beautiful Belgian Ardennes at a magical place called ‘Sechery’. Sara and I were looking forward to their day for a long time. For the first time ever I would be at a wedding as a guest instead of a photographer. Putting down the camera was difficult but totally worth it. Especially during the ceremony it makes such a big difference. So if you ever are a guest at a wedding put down your Iphone or camera and enjoy.
The day before, on friday, they had their civil wedding and Melissa and Jan asked me to take some pictures, a sneak peek…
Keep an eye on Jonas Peterson‘s blog, amazing photographer and wonderful guy who did all the hard photo work on day 2.
Sometimes we get a chance to shoot friends, sometimes we get a chance to shoot other wedding photographers, this time we did both. Dutch wedding photographers Mon et Mine tied the knot!

On a mountain top in Peru, 6000 meters high, Karel-Henk got down on his knee and popped the question. 2 years later, a stunning venue at one of the most epic places I’ve ever seen, the Nordic Fjords. The perfect location for this amazing and intimate wedding. Fleur & Karel-Henk, Thank you so much for flying me in and letting me capture your emotional day.
