How do we photograph weddings?

With a lot of passion! We almost always come home with dirty clothes, because we’re all about getting the best pictures. And you are reaping the benefits of that. Below you can read what you can expect from us at your wedding.

We believe in our methods and have deliberately described them in detail below. Would you rather see our photos? Then check out these series below or go to our portfolio.

What others say about us

How does it work before the wedding?

We would love to invite you to our home or through an online conversation to get to know each other. What do you think is important on the wedding day? Who are the most important people to you?

Will you come to our house? Then we’d love to show you our fine art wedding albums, so you can see what it’s like when your love story is printed from start to finish.

In the months leading up to your wedding, we like to think with you and when the time comes, one of us will contact you to prepare the wedding day as best as possible.

How we work at a wedding

When we’re in the car to your wedding, these three words are always in our head: moment, light and frame. Throughout the day we pay attention to how the light falls (is more important than you think!), where the beautiful moments are and how we can capture that in one frame. With this focus we will start your wedding.

The day almost always starts with the preparations, paying attention to moments between you and the people you love. We as photographers are often the only strangers on your wedding day. That is why we try to connect with your families at the beginning of the day between the preparations, so that they forget about us as quickly as possible and can enjoy your wedding uninhibited. What helps is that we direct as little as possible and let everything happen. We call it Fly on the wall. This method ensures that we can capture your day as it really is.

During the photo shoot and any group photos it’s a different story: then we’ll help you of course! We give directions for good poses and sometimes throw in a joke if necessary. Together we make it a great moment, where you can enjoy the peace and each other’s beautiful outfit!

Time flies and then the ceremony begins, perhaps the most exciting moment of the day. We make sure that we have a good picture of your arrival, yes, and love for each other, but not only that. While you listen and laugh at the speaker(s), we see emotion, joy and confidence on the faces of your guests. We see the environment, that one little niece who runs off and the good friend who quickly writes off his speech. We want to capture these unexpected moments for you as best as possible and thus tell a complete story about your wedding. Why? Because it tells exactly who you are and how unique your wedding day is.

Time for cake and drinks! We move between the different groups of guests and calmly capture the atmosphere. We alternate images of details with enjoying guests and hugs that you hand out to anyone who wants to. As soon as the evening turns into dinner, we focus on happy moments between dinner, such as speeches, and we prepare the extra flashes for the dance party. We prefer to eat close to the guest room, so that we can keep an eye on things while we eat something ourselves. Of course we don’t want to miss anything!

The party is one big mix of dancing guests (perhaps an opening dance from you?) between which we move. We also like to dance ourselves, so we sometimes just hop along. The extra flashes allow us to create dynamic party images that are not too dark and bring a lot of atmosphere. When the time is up, we will come to you to say goodbye and then drive back home satisfied in the car.

And after the wedding?

A few days after your wedding, when everything starts to sink in a bit, we’ll send a preview; a few photos to look forward to in advance and to forward to whomever you want.

Then we start selecting all the good photos, which Marvin then edits naturally. This way the photos really come to life, without crazy filters of course ;). And all the photos Marvin edits in black and white? You’ll get those in color, too.

Within four weeks you will receive the complete wedding report with at least 300 to 400 edited photos via an online gallery, including a short slideshow. A timeless document like your day really was. Cherish it.
