There is a special type of magic that exists from the moment you’re engaged to the day of your wedding. The day you stand with your partner, commit to something and read the vows filled with your promises to one another, surrounded by your family and friends is something many of us have dreamt of our whole lives.

It would be my honor to capture your love and happiness as you start your life with the person you love.

You’re probably wondering why I left my home and started from scratch in a country that had a different language, habits and customs, and where I knew no one. The answer is simple: love can make you do crazy things! I met Jon when I had been in the USA for three weeks while working as an au pair after graduating from university in The Netherlands.

Our first date was at a rooftop bar in Midtown Manhattan, where we had drinks with views of the Empire State Building. Wandering through different neighborhoods of Manhattan together, picnics in Central Park, and late night pizza slices before I would take the train back to my au pair family in Connecticut…New York City was a great place to fall in love!

Wedding Story


I ever met in my life, I had to make a very difficult decision. I had to either leave Jon behind and get on with my life in the Netherlands, or take a chance and leave everything I knew behind, risking it for the possibility of a life of unknowns. I guess I can say this was the hardest decision I had to make in my life. 

Wednesday evening, 6 PM. I was waiting in the car for Jon to pick him up to go out for dinner. I had made the decision for myself. This was it – I was going home. There was no way I could stay here longer because I didn't have a job or U.S. citizenship. I told him there, in the parking lot in front of his office. He was silent. His eyes watered.

After five months of dating the

In the back of my head I knew about this job vacancy in New York, but what were the chances they’d pick me? The chance of getting hired in one of the biggest cities in the world was so small. Still, I mentioned it during dinner, and Jon's eyes lit up. Was there a chance for this relationship to last longer than the five months we had already shared together?  

Fast forward…here we are, six years later. I got the job in New York City, moved in with Jon, and we have been happily married since May 2022. Who would have thought my life was going to be turned upside down in such an amazing way like this? Who would have thought I was about to meet the man of my dreams when I stepped on that plane from the Netherlands to the United States? The romantic in me likes to say she knew I had a fairy tale in me all along. But I’ll also say that I know I’m a very lucky woman!

We ate dinner together, thinking it was one of our last.

Your wedding gallery has between 700 and 900 images, depending on the amount of coverage we agree on. All images are edited and delivered in high quality for you to download.

I completely understand that you want to show everyone your love for each other, which is why I deliver a sneak peek of your gallery within 72 hours of your wedding. 


How many photos are typically included in the wedding gallery and when we will receive them?


I will send you a Wedding Guide with tips and tricks on how to prepare for your engagement session, including what outfits and colors work best on camera. Don’t be nervous for the engagement session - I will talk you through the whole session and will tell you exactly how to stand, where to place your hands, where to look and what to do! 


What should I wear for my engagement session?


This is a complimentary gift from me to you when you book me as your wedding photographer! It’s also a great way to rehearse for your big day! I include engagement sessions in The Wedding Experience because I truly believe that they are a VITAL part of the entire process. During your engagement session, you’ll have the chance to get to know me, experience how I shoot and how I handle posing and lighting. This session will make a HUGE impact on how your wedding day flows. I’ll arrive on your wedding day already knowing how you and your fiance interact, what your best poses are and how to photograph you in a genuine way! You’ll feel like such a pro on your big day because of the great practice you had during your engagement session! Big bonus: You will receive a gallery of 75+ photos that reflect your love for each other! 


Do you also offer engagement sessions?


After your inquiry, we will meet and greet over coffee (or tea!) and see if we’re a match! I firmly believe that there should be a connection - a click - so I can serve you the best throughout this experience. Once you decide I am YOUR girl, I will need a signed contract and a 25% non-refundable retainer to save your date. The remaining balance will be due one month before your wedding day. 


I am interested in having you capture my wedding day! How do we start the process?
