About the photographer:
I am Mariska, the I am the creator and face behind the Utopian brand.
I am a Brussels-based portrait- & love story photographer. I work mainly in Belgium, but am available worldwide. I will be more than happy to immortalise the most precious moments of your life whether it's in the Flemish Kempen, the French Riviera or (please take me to) the Chilean Torres del Paine.
I speak English, French and Dutch fluently and most of my vocabulary consists of quotes from the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. tv-show.
I would describe my work as spontaneous and sentimental with a hint of nostalgia. I like to commemorate real emotions and when I do so, I add my own touch - which is inspired by my love and yearning for an analog lifestyle.
In addition to being a passionate photographer, I am a wife, an auntie, a godmother, a traveller, an adventurer, and I absolutely love dogs!
Have a look around, don't hesitate to send me a message! I am looking forward to meeting you..
As a person and as a professional, I am a person who loves nature, loves animals, loves people.. I have a profound respect for being alive..
I try to let my actions speak. Both in my home, my personal life, and through my work as a photographer: I care about my customers and their experience:
From the moment I receive your first email, through the booking process, the session and the post processing. I really care about you and will keep you updated on the process the best that I can.
I take your memories very seriously and I am so excited to integrate myself in your little group of loved ones. It is important to me to respect your wishes and make your session as comfortable as possible.
Also: During weddings, I am always happy to dance with any of the dads or risk my life in a bouncy castle. (All for photography purposes of course :°)
