Yaël and Hugo | Italy

About one and a half year ago Yael called me with the big news that Hugo asked her to married her. I was so excited for them! I know Hugo and Yael because they are videographers in the wedding industry and we worked together several times. So I was extremely honored that they asked me to capture their special day. Bella Italia here I come! The surrounding was amazing, so much to see and beautiful views. When I arrived at their venue Borgbetto Poggio Biano on Saturday morning everybody was already busy with decorating and getting ready. They had a big breakfast with all their guests and had a pool party the day before. It truly felt like a holiday with a big group of friends. All the details where so delicate and well chosen, it matched perfectly and looked breathtaking. Well you just need to see this for yourself. This is to me how an intimate wedding should be. So many laughters, tears of joy, the perfect location, sun and good food. It was a true bliss to be part of this wedding. Yael and Hugo are amazing people, their story is so pure and real. Thank you for this opportunity and the fact that you guys trusted me to document one of the most memorable days of your lives. Yael and Hugo, lets drink some Italian wine soon <3. Don't forget to watch the magical video Maru films made!


The story of Yael and Hugo

We met 10 years a go in high school. Hugo was 16 and I was one year older. So I guess you could say - very cliche -  that we’re high school sweethearts… It started as a friendship but soon that friendship grew into much, much more. We connected on music. On films. On humor. After a short while we became inseparable. We moved from Haarlem to Zwolle together to study journalism. During our time in Zwolle we started our own wedding film company, The Dreamers, for which we now both work full-time. We’re together almost 24/7 and people often ask us how we can make this work. We don’t know the answer to that question - I think we are just meant to do this. Together. And I think that’s what makes us us. When Hugo proposed I think I booked Amanda that same day. I have been a fan of her work from the moment we first met at a wedding we did together, and I just knew I had to have her as our photographer. Getting married in Italy was the best decision we could have made. For one, it allowed us to have an experience with our closest family and friends that would last longer than just a few hours. It was hard to narrow down the guest list, but we ended up with a wonderful group of people that really connected too. And, with the both of us being foodies, it allowed us to enjoy huge amounts of homemade, amazing food (!). My first dress fitting appointment was a true disaster. I didn’t feel welcome and the people weren’t very nice to me… So I decided to call a friend of a friend who is a designer. And we designed my dress together. Lilli is truly amazing and she really made my dream dress - simple, elegant, perfect.

Lennert + Evelien


This is the story of Lennert and Evelien. They got married one year ago and they had one of those unique wedding days with rain, a lot of rain. It made their wedding cosy, intimate and wonderful. The only downside was that they couldn't go out for a photoshoot. One year later they decided to mail me and asked me to capture their love for each other. They looked stunning and it was so much fun! We laughed and chatted so much that we almost lost track of time. This is exactly what I love doing, connecting with people, having a great time and deliver images that I'm proud of. There is nothing better than being trusted by clients. Thanks Evelien and Lennert, you guys rocked it! 


wedding Emmy + Arjan in Italy


Emmily + Arjan

Dear Emmy and Arjan got married at Villa Sermolli in Tuscany. A dreamy location with an amazing view. About a year ago I captured the wedding of her brother in France and when Arjan asked Emmy to merry her she contacted me to share in their happiness. I was honored to be asked to capture their lovestory in the heart of Tuscany. They are such sweet and beautiful people, it reminds me that I'm really blessed to be able to be a part such a special day. To tell their story, captured trough my eyes. Arjan and his friends started the day with a guys hot tub moment, beers and laughter. It's definitely so cool to spend some time with friends before the wedding starts. Emmy was also getting ready with her sisters and mother. A precious moment with such sweet words, big hugs and tears. The first look was relaxed and beautiful, we walked alround the village a bit to take some photo's. The ceremony took place on the terras of Villa Sermolli overlooking a stunning valley of olive trees. Emmy and Arjan had prepared vows for each other and it was such an heart warming moment. I sometimes have tears in my eyes and hide behind my camera so no one can see me. And 'yes' this was one of those moments. Their family spoke such sweet words and gave the ceremony an beautiful personal feel to it. After the ceremony everyone was so happy and hugged each other. Time for champagne and the Tuscan sun. We did a little photo session just before dinner with the most amazing light. Their dinner was between the palm trees with little lights and candles. Being a witness of this gorgeous day was such a privilege. And I can honestly say that destination weddings are my favorite <3.

Dream wedding of Asuman and Daniël

My heart warms when I see these two beautiful people. Their wedding was beyond perfection, the details, style and warmth of their love for each other moved me. I smile when I think of all the fun we had and how special it was to be a part of it. Asuman and Daniël celebrated their wedding with family and friends at the beautiful venue Te Werve. A day filled with love, smiles, tears and lots of hugs. I was lucky enough to capture all of it and still am in awe of what the results are. Asuman and Daniël started their wedding day in a stunning hotel La Paulowna where I could capture all the details and getting ready. I would strongly recommend brides and grooms to be to do the same, it makes your images look so good! It should reflect your style throughout the whole day. Enjoy this eye candy <3. Asuman and Daniël you are the kindest and warm people and I was privileged to capture your wedding day. Thanks you!
