Stories of connection, adventure & everyday life.

For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in life stories. And by that I mean not the things you fill your days with, but why you do the things you do. I even have a degree in theology as an excuse to fill my days talking to people about their life. But then I discovered photography and fell in love with the slow process of capturing life with my camera. Why a slow process, you wonder? My answer is simple: I believe the memories we'll be making are more important. Therefore, we'll create a photo session or wedding that reflects who you are. So in a distant future, you'll look at your photos and they'll bring back all the feelings of the time we've spent together documenting your life or your love.

Yes, that's right, you can ask me to photograph almost anything: your wedding or elopement, your family life, your creative business, or personal portraits. Why? Because I love to capture it all. In the process of creating your timecapsule, we're going to take a few steps: we'll get to know each other, create a custom plan for your photo session or wedding, and take

the time to create the images you dream of. Is this something you'd be interested in? I'd love to hear from you!

I'm Hester.

And I do photography a little differently

Portraits

Weddings

I create little timecapsules of everyday life for anyone who loves my approach of photography: slow and focused on the in-between.

I help quirky, adventurous, down to earth and camera shy couples create the wedding they want, not the wedding others think they should have.

Let's get started

the first contact

The first step is easy: you fill out the contact form or send me an e-mail. If you know what you want, tell me as much about your plans as possible. If you just know you want to work with me, that's great too. Just let me know why and what time frame you're thinking about.

You will receive a response from me within 24 - 48 hours. But if you haven't heard back from me, please reach out again.

1.

a coffee date

After our first contact, we'll schedule a video call. We'll chat for about half an hour, preferably with your favourite drink in hand. A little bit like old friends catching up. During this call, we'll get to know each other, and see if your wishes and my style of photography are a good fit. Therefore, this is one of the more important steps in the process.

2.

make it official

Before we start working together, I'm going to ask you to sign a contract and pay a booking fee. This gives us both some security.

After you've signed the contract, it's going to be a lot of fun: creating a custom plan for your photo session or wedding, preparations, and, of course, the moment we're going to create those beautiful, silly or epic photos together.

3.

Contact form

Your photos should be all about you and your story. The first step to getting there, is connecting with your photographer. So don't hold back while filling out this contact form. The better I get to know you, the more your photos will reflect who you are.
