Engagement photos in Central London 1

Engagement photos in Central London

So I finally set myself in a new place, however, some of the boxes are still waiting to be unpacked and I wanted to get myself out of all those things and decide to share with you amazing engagement photos in Central London I shoot last year with Chloe and Mark.

Engagement photos in Central London

After refreshing and relaxing GnT in the local pub we went for our tour around most amazing places in Central London. Straight after we get out both of them share with me lots of their great energy. Lots of smiles, kisses and funny jokes which resulted in superb natural engagement photos. We were super lucky that day with the weather, the sun was shining through clouds allowing me to shoot couple breaking the rules, against sun shots. And oh my, I love to break that rule.

It was my lucky day. The moment when we walked up to St Paul's Cathedral I realized we got all the stairs and upper area just for us. I could spend all afternoon over there. It is a simply beautiful place for engagement photos in Central London. Sunrays are shooting through the buildings at a certain time of the day (let it be my secret when), and give a colour which no effect can produce. Chloe and Mark also felt it and you can tell by their smiles that it was just pure fun for all of us.

I had one more ace in my sleeve, by the river there is always plenty of the street artist, musicians and... bubble makers ( I hope that is how they called). By a small fee, they will be super kind and blow those bubbles over the couple, and again we were super lucky because the wind here is essential, and my oh my... It went over my expectation. That was a superb October afternoon which finished with a cup of hot coffee and chats about wedding plans.

Although the time now is difficult to plan your wedding and you are looking for a wedding photographer do not wait until last moment. Many of 2020 weddings are moved to 2021 and the dates are going quick. So if you are looking for outstanding engagement photos in Central or wedding photographer Simply contact me and lets me show you how epic your wedding photos will be.

Lots of hugs

Engagement photos in Amsterdam

Social media can play such a crucial role in my work. It allows me to connect with so many different types of people which I am grateful for. Bernard and I connected through a Facebook group for photographers. This is how I got to know him and his lovely wife Jessica. He told me of his plans to have engagement photos taken in Amsterdam. I was so excited because I try to visit Amsterdam at least once a year anyway. It is one of my favourite places in the world. The city is amazing and has such great food, architecture and friendly people. Everyone should visit there at least once in their life. Or even just go there to have wedding photos in Amsterdam like my couple. There’s something simply romantic about the atmosphere there.

My couple Bernard and Jessica flew in all the way from Singapore just for the shoot. Their wedding photos in Amsterdam as you will see were gorgeous. Jessica stunned in a blue dress which contrasted perfectly with the golden sun rays. Bernard looked very dapper in a striped shirt. His haircut was so my style, it was like looking in a mirror. If he had a beard we would’ve passed as twins I’m sure. We clicked straight away it was just like seeing a long lost best friend, it must be my charm.

Wedding photos in Amsterdam

There’s something so motivating about couples who step outside their comfort zone. Many of my couples have had their photos taken in such beautiful places around the world. As I mentioned I have visited this amazing city before. This made the engagement photos in Amsterdam so easy to navigate. However, along the way, I did spot some new corners of town which is always a bonus. Usually, I am too shy to mention on here that I have actually studied tourism and hospitality. So after all those years of uni, I could finally use my well-earned knowledge :D.

Luckily for my couple, the weather was fantastic, it was sunny all day until noon. We rounded up the wedding photos in Amsterdam with an epic sunset scene it was just perfect. Normally after engagement photos In Amsterdam or somewhere similar I would go straight home. However, I just couldn’t resist stealing an extra day there just for myself. But that’s definitely a story for another time.

If you are planning to have your engagement photos in Amsterdam or any other place on earth, please do not hesitate to get in contact. I am taking bookings for 2020 with early birds offer, best dates go quick so do not wait until last moment. Lots of hugs, Bart!

Engagement photos in Limehouse

Engagement Photos in Limehouse

Choosing the perfect location for your engagement photos can be a task. However my couple Connie and Julius tastefully chose an area in east London called Limehouse. The day started off amazing the weather was sunny and I had some great photo ops. The lovely bride-to-be had prepared plans for the day ahead of time which was awesome. We walked all around the Limehouse area which was great fun. Especially because both Connie and Julius are dancers, it was great fun to see it portrayed in their photos. My athletic couple also shares my love of long-distance running, and we put our stamina to the test. The atmosphere of the shoot was amazing my couple really bounced off each other and shared great humor. There was lots of smiles and happiness which are shown in the pictures. I am super happy how this engagement photos in Limehouse went!

Engagement photos at Home

Having your engagement photos at home is never anything to be ashamed of. You don't have to spend great amounts of money to have a successful photoshoot close to home. It's a great idea to check out what's close to you first. One of my favorite parts of this shoot was the snaps at the Limehouse marina. Typical of British weather the heavens started to open, however, we still got the most amazing photos. Also, the area was completely empty which added to the atmosphere. After all of the excitement, we ended the day with tea and a cake Connie had baked herself. Julius even showed us his piano skills, I must say I totally wanted to buy a keyboard after that.

If you are thinking about having a photoshoot close to home or even far away get in touch now, best dates go quickly. To book for 2019/2020 please enquire. I hope to capture your future miracle moments.

Engagement photo shoot in Hyde Park 2

Engagement photo shoot in Hyde Park

Many people who live in London don't take full advantage of this beautiful city. My jet-setting couple Vera and John came all the way from the USA for their engagement photo shoot in Hyde Park. Talking of long distances my couples relationship actually started as a long-distance romance. John lived in London and Vera lived in New York, after a year John moved to the USA. A real-life fairytale romance if you ask me. We kicked off the day by visiting a school where John previously worked which was a sentimental touch and stopped off at the famous Abbey road which is known for a photo of the Beatles. The tourists were so kind and gave us space for a full street photo when Vera and John crossed the famous road.

Vera also suggested a visit to little Venice, a place I had not even heard of after all these years. It was such a cool location to shoot with lots of boats all around. The photos taken there were great so I would totally recommend if the real Venice is looking a little pricey. We wrapped up the photo shoot at the gorgeous hyde park. We took photos until the sunset and then came my favourite time, golden hour. However, the window isn't actually that big and golden hour usually only lasts for around 20 minutes. This was plenty of time for me to capture my couple in all of their splendour.

If you are planning a wedding, please do not hesitate to get in contact. I am taking bookings for 2020 with early birds offer and still have free dates for 2019. Lots of hugs, Bart!

Greenwich as a location is popular in itself, this is because of the variety of British historical features it offers. Many couples take their wedding and engagement photos in Greenwich and here you will see why.

I believe that the summer is a magical time to have a wedding. My couple Erina and Kosuke decided to have their summer engagement photos taken in Greenwich. I thought that this was a splendid choice, as Greenwich is one of my favourite parts of London. My couple both looked like models for their engagement photos in Greenwich. However, most importantly they looked like they were made for one another. They will both have great memories to look back on, and I was proud to be a part of that.

Wedding Photos Greenwich

We started off our journey in Canary Wharf, a very modern location, and the photos turned out great. We then took wedding photos in Greenwich which I really enjoyed. The atmosphere there is always amazing, plus there are many gorgeous features to be included in the photos. There was great lighting at both locations just before the golden hour. All of the photos were flattering and captured snippets of the couple's happiness whilst in each others presence. Stay tuned for the couples wedding story, which will be up on my blog in the coming weeks.

Engagement Photos Madrid

Travelling as part of my job makes me feel so blessed. This time around I was lucky enough to do engagement photos in Madrid. I particularly love engagement shoots because there are so many different opportunities to be creative. Spain is an amazing setting for such creativity. My couple Irene and Jorrit had a shoot in Madrid 48hours before their wedding. Of course, I was more than happy to cater for their needs and provide great flexibility. As you know with weddings organisation is key, and I enjoy playing a part in making everything run smoothly.

I love how my couple Irene and Jorrit deliberately chose a place with such versatility. Many people aspire to have engagement shoots in beautiful places such as Madrid, hopefully, this can provide some inspiration. We started off the shoot with a long walk around central Madrid. The sheer beauty inspired me to be even more creative in my work. I was able to use the Spanish architecture to produce truly eye-catching photos. My wonderful couple can now store them in their memories forever. They also took me to an amazing food market called 'Mercado San Miguel'. I'm a big fan of olives and I must say they had the best olives I have ever tasted.

Wedding Photos Madrid

My couple Irene and Jorrit definitely made the right choice to do their wedding and engagement photos in Madrid. They brought me to a beautiful place called 'Parque Del Buen Retiro' which translates to park of the pleasant retreat. The park had the most amazing crystal palace I have ever seen, a great asset to any photo. The sunset was stunning and during the golden hour, the clarity of the photos was amazing. Soon I will upload the photos of their actual wedding in Madrid, they were marvellous. This was my second time in Madrid and I hope to go back soon to shoot more lovely couples in this gorgeous setting.

I still have free dates for 2019. Please get in contact if you would like me to capture your miracle moments. I would love to meet your needs and provide the best possible pictures of your special day.

Wedding photos Hyde Park

Wedding photos in Hyde park

The moment I write this blog, Jessica and Max prepare the last bits for their wedding. And now I know that it will be a wedding that will not be an ordinary wedding. However, today I would like to share with you their wedding photos in Hyde Park.

Wedding  photos in Hyde Park

I assume that couples which I will work with will stress on the very beginning. That's why I decide to choose a place where there will be a lot of people. This will allow them to break the stress associated with the crowd. By the way, this allows me to show amazing locations in London.

We met in the late afternoon and use Covent Garden as the first location, calmly and without pressure. To my surprise, Jessica and Max posed like enchanted ones. Focused on themselves, separating the environment allowed me to do what I do best. And my God, how amazing they look ...

Covent Garden wedding photos

I assumed that we would spend at least an hour and a half on Covent garden wedding photos, but when I looked at the watch, it did not take 20 minutes and we were done there. However, I had a plan B, the hidden gem of London. A small square with colorful buildings and in the center of which is ... pharmacy. Neal's Yard if anyone was curious. For me a bomb, attention only to the crowds of people.

Waiting for the sunset, which for me is the most important moment of the evening, we had to take some time. And probably there was no better solution than a pint and the world championships in football.

However, this moment has come, piece de resistance, a golden hour! It is here that Jessica and Max showed a real fire. I can not describe these wedding photos in Hyde Park with words. The first pictures are taken, literally, a few meters after entering the park. Stunning.

I would love to be your wedding photographer London and tell your wedding story. There are still some free dates in 2018 so do not wait until the last moment, best dates go quick. Contact me and lest simply chat how amazing wedding you will have.

It is so difficult to blog during the wedding season. I would love to share with you all amazing couples and their stories. So all things on a side today and let's have a look at engagement photos in Richmond Park with fabulous Debbie and Ben.

Engagement photos in Richmond Park

I have to start with that I'm an absolute fan of dogs. Therefore, do not be too bad for me to see King Moe here. Absolutely wonderful black labrador in which I fell in love at first sight. So, you can expect a lot of pictures with this sweetie.

We started our engagement photos in Richmond Park which I have surprisingly visited for the first time in seven years. The plan was simple, nice afternoon walk to sunset. With each minute the sun became more and more softer. It took on a golden colour which in my opinion is perfect for such occasions. The weather was perfect which is difficult in London. Even Moe took advantage of the opportunity to bath in the pond. Ben probably had to refresh the upholstery after that.

Many people will say that in the park there is not much opportunity for creativity when it comes to wedding photos. However, if you look for it properly, you can see how the light and shadow dance at sunset and create beautiful patterns.

Destination wedding photographer Italy

Destination wedding photographer Italy

A week ago London has been covered with snow that I have not seen for years. I remembered then why I did not like winter so much. With a longing for the summer weather, I was reminded of a fantastic wedding session in Italy on which I was with Tom. Enjoy.

Destination wedding photographer Italy

Being a destination wedding photographer Italy is not one of the easiest jobs, but the most pleasant ones are certainly. When you board the plane in long trousers, and the first thing you want to do after leaving it, is to change into shorts, for me in itself is an amazing feeling. Day off, visiting Rome and for the first time trying the tastiest pizzas I ate. A real Italian pizza is definitely something you have to try.

After this short trip, it's time to work. Trough curvy mountain roads we arrive at Ravello. A beautiful city with a fabulous view, which I woke up for the next three days. In a very short time, I will post on my website a wedding from this place. Today, however, I serve you a small introduction to this amazing place for a wedding in Ravello.

Wedding in Italy

Narrow streets, historic buildings and the view which I hope to see again. Rebecca and Jon blended in superbly with everything that surrounded us. You do not have to imagine it, just look at the pictures. And when the sun began to set, I was sold. I would like to do more weddings in Italy.

Oh, that was an adventure, but it is only a foretaste of what happened the next day. However, I will tell you about it another time. Now please catch some sunbeams from this beautiful photo session in Italy.

I & J - Camden Town wedding photographer

It is good to occasionally catch a break from editing, emailing and marketing, and just share your photos with you. I met Irene and Jorrit already in 2016 after they saw engagement photos of their friends Sandra and Daniel. Irene and Jorrit wedding will take place next year, but already now they wanted to make an engagement photo session enjoy.

As Camden Town as a wedding photographer, I am prepared for the weather might be surprising. However, this time the sun is rarely used to co-operate surplus well. Our afternoon began in a very classic and well-known Westminster. Big Ben, the London Eye and a quick walk to Trafalgar Square, filled up with the beautiful places where Irene and Jorrit looked as if they were enchanted. Smiling and posing to themselves in a way that professional models would not be ashamed. It was pure pleasure.

Our next stop was Camden Town, incredibly colourful place. I have been planning to take one of my couples, because of graffiti's, the market with the old stuff, riverside bars and pubs pulsating with life. I love this place. The best part is walking along the river you can get to one of my favourite London parks.

London wedding photographer

It was here that I had the opportunity to photograph in Regents Park. I will probably never get enough of this place, because where would you go there is always some corner with flowers, bushes, trees and with the beautiful sun if this is the golden hour.

The biggest surprise, however, that day turned out to be a phone call from Jorrit sister. Who told them that she just gave birth to a baby girl. There were tears, smile and incredible energy that accompanied us to the end of the day. Amazing day, I can not wait for their wedding which I invite you already now.
