Tjeerd & Inje | A Wedding in Castricum, Netherlands

I never thought I would be photographing a Dutch wedding on a beach in Castricum, Netherlands, but that's where I found myself on June 8th. Photographer Kyle Hepp recommended I reach out to Sjoerd Booij while in Europe to see about a mentor session to improve my skills and to shoot a wedding with him. What resulted was the greatest experience! 

Tjeerd and Inje have to be one of the happiest couples I've ever met. Them and their whole family had the most warm, magnetic smiles and I can tell they will most certainly have a lifetime of happiness together. Their relaxed, bohemian, flowers-in-her-hair wedding vibe had me feeling like I was in California, had it not been for the ceremony in Dutch. You can really tell they know what's important in life- between having almost forgotten their rings and laughing it off or the private family dinner they enjoyed before their ceremony. I enjoyed seeing the different Dutch traditions, like the traditional Oranjekoek and the private moment between the bride and groom before the ceremony where the groom brings the bride flowers. Tjeerd and Inje, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day. Below are my favorite shots from their big day below and here's more in their gallery.
