• Welcome to Bali Wedding Photo blog !

    A few words about me and my approach as wedding photographer, if I may: I have been a Bali Wedding Photographer for over eight years and have been documenting in excess of 300 Bali destination weddings for couples from across the world. For me wedding photography in Bali is not a profession, but a calling driven by an innate curiosity for what lies beyond the obvious. I am passionate about wedding photography and believe in the power of the enduring still image in our fast paced world where the emphasis is on immediacy. An intimate photograph stops time and allows you to reflect, to relive a moment and above all: TO FEEL. I am consumed with a desire to be an eye witness to the diversity of human emotions and to record all the defining moments of your wedding in Bali. I do so with empathy and honesty. I harness the story-telling power of wedding photo journalism by highlighting your own individuality and through meticulous attention to details. Some people have asked how could I have made such compelling and engaging photographs – my answer is: how could I not…

Photos of a wedding in rain

wedding in rain


Weddings and pre wedding photographs during the height of the rain season in Bali are somewhat risky business. But that was not to deter Toby & Gilbert. Come rain, come sunshine they were ready for it. To mitigate the risk of rain spoiling it all they decided to have a pre wedding session 3 days before the wedding. And it turned out to be a prudent move to do so. On the day of the pre wedding photos the weather was so-so. Which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because of the soft light that the over casted sky on that day provided. In the end everyone was happy that we had at least the pre wedding photos under wraps.

On the wedding day they had planned to do the ceremony at 17.00 h. I advised them to set the ceremony one hour earlier. Why ? Because the chance of rain was very high for that day. So my idea was that if it would rain at 16.00 h they could wait for the rain to stop and then still do the wedding ceremony. And this strategy paid off. When I arrived at 15.00 h there were huge rain clouds in the sky. Rain was an inevitability! And it was decided to proceed with the wedding ceremony as planned. A wise decision! Towards the end of the ceremony it started to rain heavily. But that was not to spoil this lovely wedding. Only the signing had to be done under a roof. We continued with the group and family photographs.

And then best part was to come. Because of the ongoing rain we were unable to shoot any photos outdoors. At first it appeared to be a bit of a problem where to do the photographs… But I love challenges and we did all the photos inside the hotel. I am completely thrilled with the results. I am very glad that I was confronted with this challenge.

Honeymoon photographs

honeymoon photographs

Julia & Anton just got married a few days before coming to Bali. Back home they did not have a big wedding, just the paper work. Consequently they were very much keen on having honeymoon / wedding photographs taken during their vacation in Bali.

While researching her options for a photographer in Bali Julia came across my website. She contacted my right away and asked for my availability during her stay in Bali. The only brief Julia gave me was that her honeymoon photographs would need to be natural and should reflect the deep bond between her and her husband.

I never in my entire career had a photoshoot whereby the emotions of the couple transferred into the photos as well as in this shoot. I hardly had to give any instructions or asked for any poses. It all came completely natural. It was so easy and inspiring to work with these two ‘love-birds’. The conditions for this honeymoon photo shoot could not have been any better. Everything was simply perfect. So without any further ado please see in the following my personal favorites of this super inspiring photo shoot:
