Hi, my name is Sjoerd Booij
and this is my family
Father of two beautiful girls and in love for over 15 years with Marieke.
Amsterdam Wedding & Elopement Photographer since 2011
This is me, Sjoerd! Hope I didn’t scare you there. Don’t worry, I am pretty sure we can get that first impression about a bearded weirdo turned into something lovely. Hear me out.
In 2011 I decided it was time to follow my dream and be a fulltime photographer
So, let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. I am 37 years old and father to my two beautiful daughters Fenna (6 years) & Jente (3 years). Being a father to two young girls changed a lot for me.
Besides the obvious shortage of sleep, the little ones helped me understand the importance and meaning of love between people even more. Because of my girls, I truly believe I create more meaningful pictures for the people that hire me.
I have always loved good photography and other visual appealing arts. In 2011 I decided it was time to follow my dream and be a fulltime photographer. Never regretted the decision or looked back since.
Besides creating images I love creating other things too. In my garage I am always building stuff. Concrete table lighting, a high sleeper bed for the girls, plant holders of oak combined with concrete, welding a side table and so many more things… always experimenting and letting my creative mind run wild.
Bedtime stories with my daughters when travelling through Bali in 2018. The youngest has my character… Always ready to bring things to the next level.
I am not a magician with a camera. It’s you and me baby.
So, here we are. You guys getting married. Or maybe in the middle of some other lifetime moment that you want captured. Me a photographer with a deep passion for documenting the adventure called life.
I feel having a true connection with my couples is the most important part in creating something meaningful. I am not a magician with a camera. It’s you and me baby. You need to trust me creatively and from there I am sure we will create magic together.
So let’s get this thing we have here started. Plan a face-to-face meetup. Skype. FaceTime. Chat. Laugh. Drink a beer/wine or two and get talking. I love to hear all about your dreams, passions and wedding plans.
I will tell you all about how I work, my girls, my life. That’s where we start and I truly believe it will lead us to beautiful things.
