I work best at a small-scale, easy-going wedding. For example, I photographed a wedding on a campsite with only 28 guests. The bridal couple was not afraid to get their clothes dirty, and everyone sat relaxed on the grass. That felt unique and pure.
I prefer to not let you pose too much, but capture fun spontaneous moments unobtrusively. Such as a burst of laughter from the bride or groom, a father showing off his dance moves or a secret kiss between the bridal couple.
From a close-up of the table setting to an overview of the entire scene. I tell the story of your wedding with pure photos that give you the feeling that you are back in the atmosphere of the day. I capture the most important events, look for spontaneous moments and show the interaction among the guests.
My photography style fits perfectly with an outdoor wedding, like at the beach or the great outdoors. This way I can use natural light and pure colours. Although I edit my images with great care, my style remains neutral and I don't use heavy filters. As a photographer it is very special to be present at the intimate moments of a wedding. It is so personal when the father sees the bride for the first time or when the bridal couples make their vows to each other. The latter is my favourite moment at a wedding, when I can't always hold back my tears. Fortunately, I can hide behind my camera.
Although it can feel terribly forced, I recommend taking half an hour for a couple session. For example, we can go to a beautiful spot in nature to do a relaxed photoshoot with just the two of you. Or I could steal you away from the party at the end of the day during golden hour when most nerves faded away.

Estrella & Micha
"We are very happy that we picked Hannah to be our wedding photographer. Her beautiful light style appealed to us. There are so many photographers that use the same filter on all photos, we didn't want that. Captivating images of the moment, are what Hannah makes. She is pleasant to be around, accessible, and friendly. We often didn't even notice she was there. As a result, we have beautiful story-telling photos with little posing, exactly what we wanted. We whole-heartily recommend Hannah as a wedding photographer!"
Marieke & Philip
"Hannah photographed our wedding. Hannah's calm approach suited us perfectly. The photos are spontaneous and not forced at all. The photos perfectly show how we experienced the day. After the wedding she surprised us with a beautiful mini album! After the great experience at my wedding, I also asked Hannah to take portrait photos for my company, again with a beautiful result. I would definitely recommend Hannah!"
bianca & Erik
"Hannah captured our day beautifully. We wanted photos that would reflect the atmosphere of the day, without taking up a lot of time or posing. This worked out perfectly! Hannah is a sweet, relaxed photographer who takes the most beautiful pictures unobtrusively."
You and your guests can post my photos to your heart's content. I like it if you include my name.
I also think it is great if you share the photos with your wedding suppliers, but it is nice if they want to mention my name when using it.
Yes, I carefully edit each photo individually. I have a light editing style and keep the colours natural. Additionally, I remove any temporary spots, blemishes and dark circles. Unless discussed otherwise.
I love to photograph and to do this with as much energy as possible it is necessary to take a break. I work very long hours (I once had a 15-hour wedding!), so a good meal is very important. It would be nice if you book a crew meal for me with your caterer. Thank you!
I am from Rotterdam and can be booked all throughout the Netherlands, the wedding package includes travel costs. I would even love to come to your wedding abroad! Of course, I will have to charge extra travel costs for destination weddings.
Ik vind het heerlijk om te fotograferen en om dit met zoveel mogelijk energie te doen is het nodig om
pauze te houden. Ik maak erg lange dagen (ik had een keer een bruiloft van 15 uur!). Een goede maaltijd
is dan erg belangrijk. Het is fijn als jij bij je cateraar een crew maaltijd voor mij reserveert. Dan kan ik
daarna weer opgeladen verder met het maken van foto’s. Dankjewel!
Of course! If you would like to take a group photo with all guests, this is best done immediately after the ceremony, when everyone is still together. A good time to take photos of the smaller groups is during the reception, after the ceremony. It is a good idea to make a list of combinations in advance. Pass these on to someone who knows the faces of the names so he or she can help me get the groups together. I recommend not to do too much, about 10 or so. We will spend about half an hour on this.
Yes please! I have had many photos ruined by people with phones in front of their faces. I will provide a complete visual story of the day so you and your guest don’t have to worry about that.
It is best to indicate a ‘no phones’ policy on the wedding invitation or on a sign at the entrance. The use of phones is especially disturbing during the wedding ceremony, the rest of the day this isn’t such a big deal.
I recommend doing this before the ceremony. We choose a nice place close to the wedding venue. My advice is to take about an hour for this. If you choose multiple locations, we must of course take a little longer.
My favourite time to take photos is during golden hour. This is roughly 1 to 2 hours before sunset. It is advisable to take another 15 minutes around this time for some extra pictures of you two together.
This depends on your wedding day. I like to be there about half an hour / hour before you put on your wedding dress. This way I have some time to make shots of the dress and the preparations. I often end my day about half an hour / hour after the start of the dinner or party
Believe me, this is the rule rather than the exception. That's why I love a natural way of posing. I create fun moments by giving you little assignments. I'll let you practice your opening dance one more time, we'll walk a bit and before you know it the shoot will be over and you will have nice spontaneous photos. Before the shoot I’ll give a short briefing with tips and during the shoot I’ll continue to give directions. You've got this!
A good way to get used to me and my camera is to book a couples shoot prior to the wedding.
I will deliver the photos via an online gallery within 4 weeks after the wedding. You can download the photos in high resolution through this gallery and share the photos with your wedding guests. In this gallery you can indicate your selection for the optional deluxe wedding album. This gallery will remain online for six months.
The packages include a mini album, this is a nice little extra that gives you a tangible memory. It is an album of 15 × 20 cm with 24 pages. I make the design and image selection at my own discretion.
Yes, you also have the option to upgrade to a deluxe album. This album is a wonderful keepsake. I have the albums made at a Dutch professional printing office. They are printed on high quality fine art paper. The album has space for 30 up to 100 pages. You make a selection of your favourite photos and I’ll make a beautiful album design. Before placing the order I’ll let you take a look at the design so I can make adjustments where needed. You have various options in terms of material and use of colour for the cover. After approval of the design, the album will arrive within 6 weeks.
Yes, I make the choice whether colour or black and white looks better with a photo. There will be a nice balance.
Fortunately, it has never happened that I was sick while I was hired to photograph a wedding. If this does happen, I will provide a suitable replacement.
No, I will only send the photos selected and edited by me. But I will not hold back anything, you will receive all the successful photos from me.
Is it also possible to get the unedited photos?
