FAQ

COVID - We needed to alter our plans and now we can only do a city hall wedding!

My Mini Wedding Package includes 8 hours of coverage. This goes by faster then you think! I'll start photographing the morning preparations for the both of you, and take beautiful Solo Portraits before heading to city Hall together.
After the ceremony, there's time for your bride & groom's session, group photo's and for the drinks/meal planned with your closest family. ♥︎

If you really have nothing else planned after the signatures - let me know in the contact page to see if a 6-hour deal is an option for you.

I feel very uncomfortable in front of the camera, just so you know..

I hear this all the time! But do not worry. Most people are unexperienced in front of a camera.
Let's get to know each other a little bit so you know who I am, and I can explain the way I work.
I let you be yourself completely during any kind of shoot and take the distance and attitude needed to make the real you pop-up on my photographs.

Can I extend the session on the day of my wedding?

Yes, you can. This will require an additional fee. Payment is required before delivery of your gallery.
Choose your package wisely. The more hours you book, the better the deal.

If you hesitate between two options, please let me know and we'll go over the timeline of your wedding day together.

Do you photograph small weddings?

I love small weddings and elopements! In my opinion, small, intimate weddings radiate even more your personal style and personalities.

I ask to book a minimum of eight hours to be certain I'll be able to cover your wedding story from beginning to end.

Do you have a studio for my portrait session?

No, I personally feel that studio photography lacks personality and context. Nothing against someone who does studio photography or specialises in it, but it is not my style.
I like to tell stories through my photo's. So I prefer to use real-life backgrounds. We can discuss this and come up with ideas prior to your shoot.

Do you make photo albums?

Yes! In several of my wedding packages there is a wedding album included. Or, you can order with me after your wedding.
I work with a professional album maker, where I send the design I made with your wedding photo's. They print and hand-bind your album and send it to me, so I can hand it to you. This process takes several weeks to a few months (depending on our communication and whether it is the busy time of year.), but you'll have your digital files to enjoy while you wait for your quality, hand made album.

Do you make wedding video's?

I work with an entrusted colleague of mine, who is a wedding videographer. If you would like to book both of us for your wedding just let me know.
*We both have our own rates and availabilities.

How long in advance should I reserve my wedding date?

If you are getting married on a Saturday, the sooner the better. Once you have payed your deposit, your date is officially booked.
In any case, just send me a message to know if I am still available on your wedding date.

Do you shoot destination weddings?

Yes.
Please contact me if you are getting married somewhere beautiful! Of course, we will talk about an interesting deal, but please keep in mind that my work routine and labor hours will be the same, whether I shoot your wedding in Belgium or in Ibiza.
I still need to pay my rent and bills. But yes, I do love to travel and to photograph you and your other half in breathtaking landscapes.
So let's talk and figure out a deal that is beneficial to us all.

I need to cancel my portrait session, what happens?

For portrait- and couple sessions I request to pay the full amount in advance. This is to ensure a binding commitment from both parties (we both blocked time for each other in our busy schedule) and not to deal with the awkwardness of payment when we just finished our super fun photo session.
If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel, you can reschedule your session without a problem- but not get a refund. Depending on how short before the session you cancel, I may ask you for a supplementary booking fee.
This is not to be corporate, but because I am losing money as I cannot book anyone else in that time-frame at such short notice.
° Please read over my General Terms and Conditions I will send to you upon booking.

Do you request a deposit for our wedding day?

To officially book your wedding date with me, I request a deposit of 30%
The remaining balance can be payed whenever suits you best, at the latest on the wedding day itself.

Do you do "Boudoir" sessions?

Sure. If you are looking to do very sexual images or complete nudes, I am probably not the person you are looking for. But I can use my regular style and photographic eye to create sensual images focusing on either fragility or empowerment.

Why should I choose you over any other photographer?

Choosing your photographer is very personal.
First of all, choose your photographer for the style, look and feel of their images.
You can book a photographer because he/she is cheaper or maybe more experienced. If you are not dreaming away at their work- it's not the photographer for you.
Second of all, choose your photographer for their personality.
Do you like what you see about them, on their website and social media? You need to feel comfortable around this person. Especially if this person is going to be around you all day on the day of your wedding.
And last but not least, your budget. Stay around your planned budget, but if you set your budget too low and you cannot find anyone you like in your price range- give your budget a second thought. Why is everyone you like more expensive? And should you reconsider your priorities?
For a wedding, this is not the thing you want to skim on. After you left the venue, ate the cake and checked out of your hotel, all that is left are the photo's.
So to answer your question: Choose me if it feels right. The most important thing is for you to feel good and enjoy your photo's for the rest of your lives.
