Fille Roelants Photography - Wedding and Elopement photographer

Fille graduated as a pharmacist in 2010 but soon felt this profession was not his true calling. During his studies, he got fascinated by photography.

Especially attracted by beautiful light and human emotions he started photographing big festivals and parties around the globe. After 3 years of combining these 2 jobs, he gradually got drawn into weddings and kept evolving ever since. Today he has shot about 140 weddings in about 7 years time. And he usually shoots about 23 weddings per year nowadays. He has always been inspired by numerous different photographers, which influences his work in a very diverse way. Alex Webb has inspired him to explore the world of layering. Fille's own background as a festival photographer has brought him a very dynamic style of shooting, focussed on human emotion, light, and colors. Fille is also a keen travel photographer and loves to combine this with his job as a wedding photographer. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]

Antwerpen wedding photography by Pieter Vandenhoudt of Flanders, Belgium

Perfect is boring. I'll just deal with the real. Real is better. That's what I'm photographing for. No uncomfortable staging, just be you and I'll do the rest: Translating real-life stories into unforgettable images for you, your family and your friends.

Antwerpen wedding photography by Yves Schepers -  Serving Flanders and Belgium

Hey there, I'm Yves. A wedding photographer from Belgium that has been shooting weddings since 2014 after leaving the corporate engineering world behind him. This wedding photographer life has been a rollercoaster which led me to meeting a warm wedding photography community of friends, seeing all parts of the world and enjoying this creative outlet. I love both creative portraits as well as a more documentary approach to wedding photography and everything in between, which makes me feel a kind of hybrid. As long as my images evoke emotions, I'm a happy camper. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]

Flanders-based Joshua Dhondt is a Wedding Photographer for Antwerp, Belgium

Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 7 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]

Antwerpen wedding photography by Bob Baeyens - Belgium and Flanders WPJA

Coming from a creative family I started drawing at a very early age. Now I freeze unique moments with my camera instead of a pencil. What I love most as a wedding photographer, is to be able to capture all these emotions and moments during a wedding day. A smile, a kiss, a tear...all these little things makes me feel very privileged to be there and create all these images that will last forever. I love meeting all these new couples, there families and friends and the interactions between them. No wedding day is the same! [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]

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
