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.

Who am I? Born in 1985 in Zwartewaal. From childhood I wanted to become a photographer. I often remember how I took my parents' camera to make the family photos myself. A lot of pictures were taken in our family. The cabinet is full of a photo album every year. Ordinary home, garden and kitchen photos as we call them. All of them wonderful memories of good luck. Often it is the very small moments that I find so valuable in photographs. Have breakfast in my parents' big bed on Sunday morning. The walk in a cold winter landscape with hot chocolate. I think that my love and passion for photos comes from there. I live with my friend Antal and 3 cats. We live in the middle of the polder, here I find a lot of peace. And can greatly enjoy all the plants and animals around me. I regularly make a walk with my camera in the area enjoying all the beauty. [Zuid Holland Wedding Photographer]

Noord Brabant Elopement and Wedding Reportage Photography by Gaby Ermstrang

My name is Gaby Ermstrang and I photograph LOVE with so much love. I am thankful I can. I started out 5 years ago. My daughter was just born and I was at home without a job. So first I started to photograph for charities. Just so I could be Gaby again and not only be momma or a wife. Then I started taking portraits of the elderly. I still do that. Love that LOVE you are getting back from those people. I started to realize, I maybe am really good at Photography. People started to call me asking how much a portrait cost. That money I invested in workshops but above all invest in what I really like to make. After spending time in workshops, searching for mentoring by Marieke Zwartscholten and Leonard Walpot I think I found my passion. LOVE and moments! [Noord Brabant Wedding Photographer]

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.

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.

It is quite exciting to have your wedding recorded by someone you do not know. But after a nice and relaxed conversation we knew that we made a good choice to book you. On the wedding day you were full of creative ideas, but we could be ourselves. On the day itself, we hardly noticed you, which is very nice. The photos are really great and the wedding album has become exactly as we wanted thanks to all your tips. You have arranged everything super, our expectations in terms of service and service have been exceeded.

Natalia, You are an open and honest woman who makes beautiful pictures! You see unique opportunities and take them. I really liked that you did not want to put anything in the scene and that we actually did not notice that you were there. But that you have managed to make photos from all angles. At the times when it was necessary, you knew how to make everyone feel comfortable, for example by going crazy. Everyone is very impressed with our wedding album and often ask for your data. Which we naturally like to give.I remember especially for a moment while drawing. I saw your lens slide past when you photographed one of the guests, you made contact and said hi only. I liked it so much and funny. I love it! Thank you for making our photos!
