Photography has become a way of life for Isabelle. The beauty of this profession is that she can continue to develop as a photographer. Isabelle and her team like a journalistic approach, they are storytellers. We therefor ask you not to pose, but to experience the day as if we are not present. This way we can capture the authentic and wonderful emotions of you and your family and friends. The laughs ass well as the tears.

Your wedding day will become a story you will look back upon with a smile.

A beautiful day in your life, with the people you love, which will always remain through the photos.

We need two ingredients from you to make the wedding photography as extraordinary as possible. Those are your trust and your confidence. If you trust us we can do our work well and feel the freedom to make the best pictures of every special moment.

You will get the most creative photos we can make and we can photograph your unique story as pure, true and authentic as possible.

This could be from 10 minutes to 2 hours. If you have 2 or 3 times a little session of 30 minutes together, it become really a moment for you both to speak, hug and really be together. I try it to be as spontaneous as possible. So little posing moments, are feeling like, having your moment just the to of you, then 2 hours walking and posing all the time.

Early in de morning or at the end of the day, when the sun low. Also night sessions during the party for 20 minutes are also possible and very nice to do.

If that is possible, yes please. Lunch and diner would be great. This could be simple or if you wish near the guests so we can make pictures of every moment during diner.

13. How many photographers will be at my wedding?
There are always at least two photographers at a wedding. The second photographer is shooting the groom getting ready, some detail shots, providing a second angle on the ceremony, making guest shots She is also assisting the first photographer with off-camera lighting for creative portraits. Sometimes there is a third shooter who is most of the time a (light)assistant.
