One of the hardest decisions I had to make for our wedding, was choosing a photographer. How on earth could I choose between so many talented and sweet people? And what about our budget, could we afford it at all? Joris wasn't worried, we could just ask a friend, it's not that important, it's too expensive...
Well, excuse me?!
I felt extremely protective about our future wedding photos and knew the importance of choosing someone with a style I love. I even wondered how hard it would be to make our own photos, which is pretty crazy. When something like this keeps my mind occupied, I get very good in pretending like it doesn't exist. At least that's what I told myself at the time, yet the feeling kept pinching me in the butt every time I sat down to relax.
Just when I thought it was too late to ask anyone to photograph our wedding, still indecisive as ever, I crossed paths with Hanke Arkenbout. We worked on an assignment for Oh Marie and I felt very comfortable around her calm and confident presence. We loosely talked about my dilemma and she sort of forbid me to photograph my own wedding ;). My indecisiveness melted away and that evening I sent Hanke a message asking her to photograph our wedding. I'm so happy I did!
A month ago on a beautiful sunny day, Hanke came to visit us with her analog cameras and a big bunch of film. I though it would feel very strange and uncomfortable, cuddling my love in front of the camera, and I was pretty giggly when we started. Soon it began to feel natural and we had a wonderful fun day. I'm so happy Hanke will be at our wedding day in June!
