Starting at Home

We started this wedding at the house of the bride and groom in Amsterdam. Surrounded by their family they were getting ready for the big wedding day.

A house filled with details

Wherever you looked, some sort of beautiful detail would arise. I love capturing the little things at wedding, since they tell so much about people.

The Groom and his Barber

The Taiwanese groom had a lovely hairstyle and mustache that needed some attention from a barber before the actual wedding started.
