Overjoyed that The Wedding Blog published the images I recently took of the bridal collection of Véronique Billiet. The photos were taken at Landgoed Altembrouck, a real gem in the ‘Voer’ region in Belgium.
Recently, I had the pleasure to shoot the beautiful bridal collection of Véronique Billiet. We shot the collection at the truly idyllic estate Landgoed Hotel Altembrouck. It lies disguised between the woods and beautiful hilly country of the Belgium ‘Voer’ region. Landgoed Hotel Altembrouck in Belgium is situated just south of Maastricht, the Netherlands, and only 20 km from Aachen, Germany. Because of this close proximity to the borders, you can imagine that a mix of different nationalities and languages gave this collaboration an extra flair!
The day started with beautiful sunshine but rain was predicted for the afternoon. Everyone worked hard to make sure we had some great images before the rain started pouring at 3pm. Many thanks to Virginie (make up), Alex (hair), Cécile and Barbara (the models) for making this an unforgettable day! Véronique, the detail of your dresses are spectacular. Every dress of your bridal collection was a joy to photograph. Special thanks to Barbara for all your help and to Josje from Landgoed Hotel Altembrouck for your enthusiastic support. Merci beaucoup à tous!

Definitely the best thing I did last year was attending the amazing workshop hosted by Lisa from the Norwegian Wedding Blog. I had never been to Norway before and was more than curious to experience this beautiful country and its lovely people. It was a great experience. Lisa and her team did a fabulous job. The workshop was in Kongsvinger, about 1,5 hours from Oslo. She picked Kongsvinger Festning (Fortress) as the location for the 3-day workshop. The fortress is situated on a hill giving a stunning view on the town and forests surrounding Kongsvinger. The fortress had been recently renovated and some buildings were converted into a small hotel and conference rooms. The cuisine was excellent.
2 Brides Photography and Siegrid Cain Photography are not only amazing photographers but also great mentors. It was amazing to see their passion for photography. They shared many interesting tips and are fun people to be with. It was also a pleasure to meet Albert from Carmencita Film Lab for the first time. Their film development and scanning service as well as their warm personality is the best there is.
But most importantly, I am so happy that I met so many talented photographers. It was great to see how other photographers work and try to capture that amazing frame or light. I cannot describe how good the vibe was. No matter if the person was British, Danish, Norwegian, German, Dutch, Swedish, Polish, Spanish, or Austrian (…yes, it was quite an international bunch of people), we all have the same passion, photography.
Thank you to everyone to make this happen!
