Hi! I am Marije.


In 2010 I started photographing weddings and since then I captured over 150 weddings in different countries.


Authentic weddings and elopements are my cup of tea! Especially if I get to go on a hike in nature with you to create some magical images that complement the story of your day.


Get to know marije

I love telling the story of your elopement or wedding in a laid-back way .


I want you to feel totally relaxed at your wedding or elopement, not worrying about posing or me being in your way.


This is why I am there as your friend and I will photograph your day in a candid and laid-back way.


Not only you, but also your dear friends and relatives.


I can really enjoy a wedding where you just do what suits you best.


Whether that is a fun festival, a Celtic ceremony in the woods, an intimate wedding where you eat the best Italian food with your friends in the warm sun, just the two of you with an officiant at the fjords...


And I love nature, so if you do too let's go on a small hike!

at home i like to:
  • Grow a lot of our own veggies
  • Chill out with my sweet family at the fireplace. Home sweet home!
  • Dream of a new, giant kitchen with a large table to enjoy food.
what you probably didn't know:
  • I have over 20 dresses
  • I am an army vet
  • I drive an old Saab and listen to CD's in it
My favorite country:
Definitely Norway !
on my bucket list:
  • Watch whales with my kids
  • Watch the Northern Light with Yvo in a glass igloo
  • Build a giant greenhouse in my garden like the one in Hemlock grove

"Marije was like a friend to us. It felt like we've known her for years. She did an amazing job and took the most beautiful pictures of us. A good photographer is a big investment but the memories she captured are priceless!"

Photography collections


On this page you will find my international collections. If you get married in the Netherlands please contact me for a quote or visit my Dutch wedding blog Madame Poppy.


Always included: all photographer travel fees, including stays, car hire, airline tickets and food. My collections are all inclusive and there are no hidden costs.

Your legacy...


With each collection comes a beautiful fine art wedding book.


These books are crafted by hand.


The cover is available in linen, velvet or leather and you can pick one of the beautiful natural tints.


From the mossy green of Irish forests to the deep blue colors of the Norwegian fjords and the warm tones of the Tuscan sun to match your adventure perfectly.


They have a lay-flat design in museum quality fine art paper so your gorgeous landscape images can stretch across two pages without a fold which really looks gorgeous.


The perfect legacy of your day!


The size is 23 x 30 cm for the Elopements and 30x 34 cm for Destination weddings. It is always possible to upgrade to an extra large book or to add more pages to your book.



Just the two of you, maybe with your witnesses and an officiant.

If you elope you don't need to worry about hosting a large wedding and you can pretty much go where ever you want!


I can help you find locations and will scout the location the day before. (Or we can go together).


Optional: elopement planning & officiant


Destination weddings


Your ceremony at a Kasbah with a view on the Atlas mountains, an authentic Scottish wedding, dinner at a long table in an Italian agriturismo...


Destination weddings are often intimate. Because I work as invisible as possible you and your relatives can enjoy your destination wedding without worrying about me being in your way.


Optional: Loveshoot & rehearsal dinner coverage
