I am an expat who decided to move to the Netherlands, which I absolutely fell in love with after travelling extensively all over Europe. I’m 32 and have been a wedding, family and couples photographer for the past 12 years. I am a minimalist, I love interior design and architecture but also nature and taking care of the planet. I like wine and coffee and I am a big foodie. I spend my free time travelling, reading about nutrition, psychology, architecture and design, business, photography and science. I enjoy taking long walks and doing some resistance training, yoga or swimming. I am an animal lover, I have had dogs my entire life but now I own two cats, Suki and Mojo, who I like to think of as my furry babies. I live in Haarlem , I am married to Alex, my best friend, the love of my life and the best partner a girl could wish for. I am passionate about being a photographer who specialises in weddings, families and couples as I believe making memories for people to cherish their entire lives is probably one of the most meaningful jobs in the world.
My name is Theo.
I am a wedding, family and couples photographer based in the Netherlands.
Theo was among the first photographers I contacted and I just loved the elegance of her photographs. We met with 3 other photographer before meeting with Theo because I needed to get to know the photographer, to figure out how the chemistry was and what vibes were emerging. So we went to meet Theo and as she greeted us I felt I just loved her presence. She showed us a big and velvety wedding album with which we fell totally in love. We talked and talked and we knew she was what we were looking for. So we decided Theo was to be our photographer, but she turned out to be not just that but also our friend and our confident. Thank you, Theo, dear, for being there for us!

It took me a while to write about our impressions because I could not find the right words to express my feelings. Since I first saw Theo's wedding photos I started browsing through her blog day and night, I was absorbed, I was fascinated, I was a big fan of the pictures and the photographer because the images seemed to tell a story, they seemed to convey the emotions of the subjects and no matter how many blogs I visited and how many photos I have seen, I chose Theo with my whole heart and I have to say I have chosen wisely! I was a little bit nervous because we did not manage to meet Theo before the wedding, nor did we manage to talk about locations but Theo's friendly attitude and broad experience made us feel so comfortable. We laughed and cried together, we had fun, we understood each other without too many words. Our wedding was magical and the pictures Theo took are perfect testimonies that those wonderful moments really happened. You're a real artist and we are very happy and proud that we had the chance to have you photograph us. Simply put: Chapeau!

Whatever pictures I saw in her portfolio before those made by Theo at our wedding, I still could not have imagined that she could capture all the happiness and emotion in our eyes or the eyes of our loved ones. It slipped my mind to tell her what were my expectations of the photos because of all the preparations that we had to do right before the wedding. I just hoped that everything will turn out fine with the pictures and it was so much more than fine in the end! Now I can’t even imagine having had someone other than Theo to take my wedding pictures. She did not disappoint with anything and I received only positive feedback from all those who participated, I never felt bound to make the standard pictures with my guests and yet unforgettable moments were captured in pictures with these people, pictures full of essence that are now dear to my heart. I wish we had the same relationship with all those who contributed to our wedding! Her smile and energy immediately made her a part of the gang. Theo is not a typical wedding photographer, she’s very discreet but still she’s always there to capture everything that’s important to you.

I'll start by saying that the experience we had with Theo has completely exceeded our expectations. We fell in love with her style and were very excited to see how our pictures turned out but what I felt when I saw all the pictures can not be explained. Theo's there for you throughout the event, she’s not just a photographer. She pays attention to all the details because she knows that, in the end, everything that is important to you will have to be seen in her work. We wanted images that were authentic but, in order to achieve that, it was necessary for us to be relaxed and she was able to help us a lot with that, making jokes and just being a friend to us. We learned a lot while putting together this beautiful event in our lives and one thing we learned is how important it is to choose the right photographer to capture such a special day.

It's hard to say what Theo meant as a photographer to us. I was immediately drawn to her when I saw her portfolio, we met and I explained to her that we are more of an atypical couple. We were getting married 5 years after our baby was born. I am a strange and pretentious architect, the wedding will actually be a great party without the standard wedding rules. She immediately understood our profile, we resonated perfectly and we settled on everything. I was extremely relaxed and confident that I chose her well and everything went great. I do not know why but I expected a wedding photographer to appear in a camouflage suit and to boss us all around. But Theo was relaxed, excited about our wedding, wearing an elegant dress and acting like an old friend. She helped me with my veil, we laughed while I got my makeup done, she tolerated our delays, she danced with us, enjoyed the whole event side by side with us. I do not have the slightest idea when she took all those photos. Pictures that take your breath away, that give you goosebumps…She has a special talent but not just that because she is a special person too. I felt she was totally involved and I recommend her to everyone.

Since we've received the photos, we can’t stop looking at them. Each one has something special, each one manages to capture a piece of us, of who we are and how we are to each other and all the photos remind us of the special moments, moments that without Theo could not have been complete. You made us feel relaxed as if we were spending time with an old friend that's why we thank you. Thank you for your patience with us, for all the moments, the smiles, jokes and memories you created. Thank you for being there for us, helping us and being a part of our little wedding madness.

Choosing a photographer for our wedding was the easiest part for us. I know Theo since high school, we were classmates, and I watched her career evolve over time. I can honestly say that I chose my wedding photographer before even meeting my husband, who was just as excited about Theo when they met and saw her impressive portfolio. She is warm, open, creative and always smiling, a true artist. She manages to get very close to people, to empathise and to create a connection, so on the wedding day I didn’t think of her as a person who is taking our photos, but as a dear friend who is enjoying the wedding along with us and, at the same time, manages to capture the most beautiful moments. She kept her smile on and she was very professional no matter what the circumstances. We will have Theo to photograph all the important moments of our lives, not just as our family photographer but also as a dear friend.
