weddings

Hey, I'm glad you're here!
I'm Jaap (or Jape for international purposes), a people pleaser with a mission to capture as much emotions and happiness as possible on your special day. On a wedding, so much comes together: family and friends, emotional rollercoasters, fancy attire, stunning locations, and so much love. And me? I capture it as much as possible, constantly balancing between documentary and cinematic photography. It means I get just as excited about documenting the love between you and your family members, as I am about highlighting aestethic details as they would look in a movie.
Want to know more about me as a person? Feel free to check out the 
about me page. 


Your peace of mind and your enjoyment during the day have my utmost priority. Therefore, getting acquainted beforehand is important to me, either in real life or through video chat. Statistically, you're gonna have a lot of questions and small worries, and I will take the time to answer and ease every single one of them. You should feel comfortable with your photographer :-)

PS: The short-sleeved tux on my picture is not something I usually wear to weddings, but there's of course some room to negotiate there. ;-)
PPS: Feel free to talk to me in either Dutch, English!
(Or slow German, or very slow French :-) 

Why should I work with you? 

• I take the time to answer all of your questions and ease all of your worries.
• I'm a joyful addition to the festivities :-) 
• My first priority is that you have an amazing day. If I spot a nice photo opportunity I will always ask if you're interested, but never push you. And unless you want me to, I'm not gonna distract you from your ceremony by laying myself crosswise onto the ceremonial aisle. 
• I offer a package price that covers the whole day: I'm there from start to finish, without counting the hours. NB: photography coverage usually stops before 00:00, since everything shot after that is generally less "art" and more "blackmail material". Guests typically appreciate some undocumented privacy.
What does it cost?

Full wedding reportage in NL from €1299 incl. VAT/BTW and travel expenses within the Netherlands (excl. Wadden Islands).
Full wedding reportage in EU from €1999 incl. VAT/BTW and travel expenses within most other European countries.
Professionally designed photo album (flat-lay), from €249 incl. VAT/BTW, for a 30x30cm album with 10 spreads/20 pages (more pages always possible). For the photo selection, I invite you to mark your favorites through the online gallery workflow. After that, I will propose a design and process all of your feedback until it's completely satisfactory.
NB: additional options include a package deal that combines two smaller albums (e.g. for parents) and a luxury box. 

Second photographer from €249 incl. VAT/BTW, for a second shooter and >150 extra photos.
Is that cheap?

Yes! Most wedding photographers start their pricing around €1500 for a 6-hour package. At this moment, my price is still lower because I'm relatively inexperienced in this field and I want to swiftly expand my portfolio.
Besides that, I have the financial backbone of a jellyfish, and I'm fairly self-critical in determining the price. Use my self-doubt to your advantage, because I increase my prices frequently as a function of my experience, equipment and self-respect.

Nevertheless, I'm very experienced in event photography. You can expect high-quality photography: looking around on my website or Instagram will give you the best impression of this. 
What do we get? 

• A "practice run" couple shoot of you two. Because many of my clients have never done a professional shoot before, this prevents you from feeling like a deer in headlights on your wedding day. (NB: free if within reasonable distance from Enschede, otherwise against a small travel fee) 
•Location scouting beforehand (if within reasonable distance from Enschede, or combinable with my other travels)
•>250 carefully edited images, available in full resolution in a beautiful and user-friendly online gallery. You can password-protect the online gallery and keep certain photos to yourself before sharing them with friends and family. 
On request: a
second shooter and an additional >150 photos. :-)
•A small surprise album, if no high-grade album is selected.

My wedding was just 5 minutes ago but I'M ALREADY SO EXTREMELY CURIOUS ABOUT THE PHOTOS. How long will you keep me in agony? 

•Within 3 weeks you will receive a gallery preview. 
•I aim to deliver the full online gallery within 8 weeks. Sometimes I deliver a bit faster or slower, this depends on my schedule.
•In the case of a high-quality album: I aim to propose an album design within 4 weeks after receiving your selection. The complete duration depends on my schedule, the number of photos/pages you'd like, and the amount of feedback you can think of :-) 

* The delivery times above are only indications. I prioritize quality, so in more hectic times (like when I'm abroad) they can take a bit longer.
