Bente and Tom had just started planning their 2019 wedding when they asked me to be their photographer. I love photographing weddings, so I was already excited, but then came more exciting news: they also wanted to schedule an engagement photo session to create beautiful photographs to use on their save-the-dates and wedding invitations. We planned an outdoor engagement photo session during the golden hour just before sunset on a sultry evening at the end of July. The location: the always stunning national park ‘s Graveland, northwest of Hilversum. Despite the summer’s unprecented drought, ‘s Graveland delivered– lush greens, golden light and little pops of color from the flowers which had managed to flourish against all odds.
But what made this session even more beautiful was the intensity of the love which Bente and Tom share. A love which brought them to each other despite growing up in two very different parts of the Netherlands. A love which they’ll celebrate with their closest family and friends next year at a beautiful ceremony in the Dutch city where they first met. It was an honor to help them tell this part of their love story as they prepare for their next chapter.
