Destination weddings

A tear, a smile, the excitement & the intimacy of your love shared together, captured to be saved forever. For you and others to relive those special moments time after time.


I look, I listen, I feel and capture. Authentic, pure and a little headstrong. I’m me and make sure that you can be you. I take time for a chit-chat, ask loads of questions, make silly jokes and most of all, make you feel at ease.


My photography style can be described as a bag filled with contrasts: a mix of photojournalism, a whiff of fine art, mixed some edginess and a good dose of humour. Actually, just like me 😉


Planning a destination wedding? I love to travel with you to capture the day! I’ve done weddings and other shoots in Australia, Aruba, Bonaire, Belgium, Chile, the Canary Islands, Hawaii, New-Zealand and Tenerife.


Let’s start at the beginning: getting to know each other! Of course, I want to start with getting to know you and you’d probably want to know a bit more about me too. So first we share a drink and some conversation to really learn more about you as a couple. I will also show you a full wedding shoot and some examples of photo albums. Of course, you ask me all sorts of questions about my way of working. Closer to your wedding day, we’ll be in touch more via email or over the phone to make sure all the details are clear and I can be fully prepared for your special day! I’ll take care of my own tickets and accomodation, so no extra hassle for you.

The day

The only thing you have to do today is let go, enjoy it and be in the moment. I’ll make sure to shoot pictures and show the real you. I’ll arrive 1 or 2 days prior to your wedding to fully prepare myself. I’ll scout the location, so we can use the most gorgeous spots for your blissful pictures.


On the day itself I’ll sometimes be very present and other moments I’ll be like a shadow. I’ll mix among the guests like I’m one of them or be like a wallflower that happens to capture everything on camera. We can also decide together to do the shoot the day after the wedding. This allows us more time, you’ll be relaxed and we can make use of the best light of the day (sometime around sunset!). Added bonus: you get to wear that gorgeous wedding dress or suit one more day! During the shoot I’ll help with giving you directions when needed and make sure that the mood is relaxing so you can focus all your attention on each other. Pure and spontaneous pictures will be the result, for sure. When it comes to destination weddings, I always work a minimum of 10 hours. No special moment will be missed.


Quickly check my availability on your day!


The day after the wedding you’ll get a preview. Then I’ll continue with the rest of the pictures. You’ll receive them via an online gallery so you can easily share it with whomever you want. All pictures will be carefully, and with love, selected and edited on colour, contrast and size. I prefer to finish your wedding album with a beautiful Fine Art Story Album. Because what’s the use of having beautiful pictures that just end up on a folder on your computer somewhere? Collected and carefully curated and then printed on gorgeous paper with a matte finish, really makes the whole thing come together: your own story in your own book with a unique design.
