Mariska (Utopia Photo) discovered her passion for photography while traveling around the world. However, she did not have much patience for nature and landscape photography.
The fire for photography started burning from the moment she started making portraits. From pavers in the Meatpacking district of New York to indigenous peoples in the mountains of Vietnam.
Once back in Europe, she decided to turn her passion into her job. Since then, she has been photographing portraits, weddings and love stories in Belgium.
Her interest in old music, vintage clothing and analog cameras have increasingly influenced her work over the years.
Her photos are romantic, spontaneous and personal. They clearly tell a story, with a good dose of old-fashioned magic.
Hair & Makeup
Pouchka (Maison Marie Duval) started her career in the film industry as a camera assistant. Thanks to her presence in that industry, she discovered a passion for hair and makeup. She keeps herself constantly motivated to learn new techniques, ranging from special hairstyles to prosthetic makeup.
Apart from photo shoots, she also loves doing bridal styling!
Her favourite bridal looks are inspired by the red carpet of Hollywood's "Golden Age": classic elegance, luscious curls and waves, soft skin tones and radiant eyes.
Valentine Avoh's atelier offers light, refined and playful wedding dresses in a Haute Couture spirit, combining surprising details and timeless cuts.
From the timeless glamour of Rita Hayworth to the mysterious sensuality of Marlene Dietrich, her universe is a mix of cinematographic and musical references. The songs of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald distill their charm in the creations signed Valentine Avoh.
Morgane's (Atelier Morgane Steygers) artistic reflections are guided by her training as a stage designer.
But it is above all her sensitivity, her innate sense of color, her vision of space, her taste for the association of textures and her love of nature that give her compositions their personality.
Not only is Morgane available to compose your wedding bouquet & hair-accessories, she would be delighted to decorate your venue from floor to ceiling.
