FotoBelle was set up by Isabelle Hattink in 2001 after she had graduated from the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Breda in the Netherlands. FotoBelle consists of a team of different photographers. Isabelle is always assisted by one of her colleagues when shooting weddings. Photography has become a way of life. It is a profession in which you can continue to develop yourself. I love a photojournalist approach because I am a storyteller. This is why we do not ask you to pose for a photo, but to experience the day as though we were not there. This is how we capture your emotions. Your wedding day is a part of your life that will vividly remain in the memory through your wedding photos. As a wedding photographer, I only need two ingredients to document your wedding in a sharp and vibrant fashion: your trust and free rein. This will ensure creative images and we can capture your unique story in the most creative and natural way possible. I always take a second shooter with me for wedding reportages starting from 8 hours of photography. This has a positive effect on the quality and allows us to make more creative photos by using different angles. Besides my job, I have a gorgeous daughter, a wonderful husband, a naughty dog, and a beautiful, Japanese garden. Nature is where I feel most at home, therefore I want to go outside as much as possible. I undertake a lot of fun things with my family whenever I have an opportunity.

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding.

So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

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

So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
