As many of you probably know, I have been nominated for the Bruidsfoto Award 2015 with two photos. So cool! Both of the nominated photos were taken at the wedding of Luka & Anja in Croatia. And honestly, that didn’t really come as a surprise… because boy oh boy, this wedding was something special! Together with Robert I traveled to Croatia and stayed at Luka & Anja’s place for a week. It was a really nice relaxed holiday and it was a nice experience to have Robert second shooting for me on the day of the wedding! During our stay together with Anja and Luka we watched the World Cup (both the Dutch and Croatian games), enjoyed really nice dinners together, explored the city of Rovinj where we also did an engagementshoot. At the end of the week I could say that we became friends :)

But now about the wedding… it was the wedding with the most lovely style, the most laughter, the most drinks (yup, they seemed to have achieved a record with bottles of wine used according to the venue ;)), the craziest dance moves and so much love. It was a week and a wedding never to forget, for real. Anja & Luka, thank you so much for having me and Robert staying at your place and letting us photograph your wedding. We wish you the best and we will definitely meet again :)

OH MAN, 2014 was an amazing year for me! Can’t believe how many beautiful things have happened, both in my work as in my private life. Here’s a big THANK YOU for last year – these are some of my highlights (a hint: scroll down to see some pictures of a beautiful baby boy)!

From January until March I took some time off, which was lovely. I took a walk with my neighbour’s dog every day, and got my ‘zen’ again. Also, I went away to Belgium for a few days with my love and it was nice to have some time together. We took a beautiful walk and spotted some deer!
March started of with spending some time with my We Love Weddings friends on Ameland and I realized again that I am part of a really great group of awesome wedding photographers and lovely people.

In April we moved into our new home – woohoo three stories high AND our own garden! It was a pretty hectic month with moving, painting etc. but we loved our new home from the start. The first week in our new place we found out that we were expecting a little baby! We were over the mooon!!

In May my friend Anouk and I launched Petit Lou: a kids fashion- and lifestyle blog! Yay for new adventures :)

June was all about weddings and traveling. Robert joined me on my trip to Croatia to photograph a wedding, and we had the best holiday :) The weekend after I shot a wedding in Italy – I am so happy that I get to travel to the most beautiful places to make new friends and create something beautiful.

From July until October I’ve been busy with lots of work, and I am incredibly happy that I’ve got to photograph every single wedding I got booked for this year. I was 32 weeks pregnant during the last wedding of this year and that even went well! So so blessed. Also I need to thank some of my colleagues who joined me on a few last weddings to make sure I could make it: Rick, Evert and Melissa! A BIG THANK YOU, I felt so relaxed that you were there with me on the day and that you could take the shots from impossible positions for me and that I could sit down once in a while :)

A personal highlight for me was around when I was 33 weeks pregnant, when my sweet friend and super talented photographer Alice took some maternity photos of me. During my pregnancy I didn’t take many photos of my growing belly but I did have the wish to document it. I am extremely happy with the result – Alice is the best!

Thank you 2014 - www.ohbeautifulworld.com Thank you 2014 - www.ohbeautifulworld.com

My maternity leave started in November, and in December we welcomed our beautiful little baby boy into the world: Loek! We instantly fell in love with him and right now he is two weeks old already! Definitely the best ending of 2014! We love him so so much.

The wedding of Sjoerd & Els was one of the first weddings of this year for me, and it was such a lovely day! Danique of 88Forever came with me to the wedding and it was so nice to shoot the whole day together – a few pictures in this blogpost are taken by her as well. Sjoerd & Els, you make such a beautiful couple, thank you for letting us capture your wedding day. Wishing you all the best! :)
