Couple photos while riding bikes, visiting the Hortus Botanicus botanical gardens and strolling past the gorgeous canals of Amsterdam.

Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam

Are you taking couple photos? Make sure to go explore something fun.

To make sure my couples are at ease when we start shooting, I make sure to distract them. Go visit a lovely place, I’ll tell them. Go explore the city, I’ll tag along and shoot photos while you enjoy.

It’s the best strategy out there, since nobody likes to pose for photos. Well models do, but that’s a different story right?

I have a lot of international clients and so I get to take them to all sorts of places. The couple decided they wanted to see the Hortus Botanicus, so we met there in the afternoon.

As nervous as everyone when taking couple photos, they arrived by bike. That’s great, because I was pretty sure we could use those during the photoshoot.

First we visited the Hortus Botanicus. A beautiful botanical garden in the city center of Amsterdam. I have shot weddings here before and they all look magical. Make sure to visit when you get the chance.

My couple got the hang of it after about 15 minutes. This isn’t so bad they told me! We get to see lovely things and you take our photos. It’s so simple yet a very powerful concept. The most important part of it… the photos are real and unposed.

That’s the memory you want from your couple photos. Not a memory of the photographer telling you to bring your chin up a bit!

Bike ride through Amsterdam

After the Hortus Botanicus we hopped on our bikes. While moving our way through Amsterdam we shot some biking photos. A must have of course after a couple photoshoot in Amsterdam.

We then parked the bikes and had a casual stroll down the canals of Amsterdam. I always love this part of the couple photoshoot. The light is great at canals and the doorways are beautiful backdrops. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Leaving the canals behind and coming back to the Hortus Botanicus we finished of the shoot.

Smiling & Exploring

During a couple photoshoot it's best to explore together while I capture the real and raw story of your day.

Taking a stroll through Amsterdam

After the botanical gardens of Hortus Botanicus, we decided it was a good idea to just take a stroll past the canals. I love it when couples just explore. It gives me the opportunity to create a real story for them.

Casual exploring around the city

Taking a look at all that Amsterdam has to offer, we encountered some beautiful store windows that we had to use for some shots.

Couple Portraits

I always shoot at least one portrait. It's scary, maybe, but it sure is great to have afterwards.
