Hello, I am Marli Eggelaar from WeGraphy Wedding photography! I was raised in Nuenen, a village near Eindhoven. A real Brabander who loves to work hard and play hard!
Since I remember I was interested in photography and catching the moment. In 2006 I made a trip to Australia together with my now husband.
Just before we left I bought my very first SLR camera. My father helped me because photography runs in the family :)
My husband got crazy during the Aussie trip since I was constantly dreaming away behind the camera. Playing with the shutter speed and aperture and see what would happen. The feeling I got when I made that once in a lifetime shot made me very happy. I really enjoyed being creative. Doing something different than the status quo in photography. Although I was not a pro yet I mainly focused on finding the right light and the most beautiful colors. In 2013 I decided to my first photography study.
At that point, I came to the conclusion that to me wedding photography is the one thing in life that makes me utterly happy. People, emotions, stories, and especially love, beautiful! And to be able to record that and be meaningful for others in that way. This suits me.
In early 2017 I started to pursue my dreams, quit my day job and fully focus on full-time on wedding photography. Now, some years later I can say wedding photography is my dayjob. Every year I participate in courses, training, and seminars to constanly develop my style and signature even further.
Friends describe me as caring, creative, perfectionist, and a persevering attitude. I prefer to register rather than direct. You will not see me. I remain low profile so the couple can relax and enjoy the day.
I will never intervene in the real moments of your day. I record the events when they occur. I try to have as limited as possible posed photos. Those real pure love moments are so beautiful!
In addition, I am extremely patient and wait 20 minutes in one spot to make the best photo.
