I'm Karen, owner & photographer of KVfoto from Groningen. I am certified at the photo academy in Amsterdam and my photos have been in many magazines and have since received a lot of awards. I am very happy with cacti, smiles, good food, fun & love. I am a social person and would like you to feel comfortable in front of the camera. I am very open and honest and I also love to make jokes and bring a nice bump of energy! I am married, have a super cute dog named Steve and a horse called Zafira. I have a lot of hobbies but I have only one big passion and that is photography. I love natural light and I am inspired by you, the environment and the moment. My clients often describe shooting with me as relaxed, relaxed, patient & relaxed and that is exactly what I have in mind so that I can photograph you just the way you are. Because you know at the end of the day I am just a girl who strives to make the most beautiful pictures that give a nice feeling whether it is joy, nostalgia, hope or gratitude.

Hessam Seyedi is a wedding photographer from Groningen, Netherlands

Photography and people go hand in hand for me. Meeting new people, observing them and recording that. That is what revolves around me in wedding photography. I am a storyteller and I do that with a touch of creativity. This photojournalistic style fits best with my observing and quiet character. I like to tell you your day as it is. I, therefore, ask you not to pose or pretend. Ideally, I would like you to experience your day as it is. Only then will the photos become pure and real. [Groningen Wedding Photographer]

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space. Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
Renan Radici, of Rio Grande do Sul, is a wedding photographer for City - Porto Alegre, State - Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
