Christiaan de Groot
Wedding Photography is my passion!
I love to make a great documentary of photos that will be treasured by the bride & groom for the rest of their lives. In last few years I've won several awards in the Netherlands and Internationally, which I'm very proud of. It's always great to see when your work is loved by other photographers in the industry, but what really counts is the satisfaction of my clients. The smiles on their faces when looking at their album are priceless!
My photography got a jump start after travelling in Australia at age 21 in 2001. A few years later I was very fortunate to travel around the world with my girlfriend (no wife) and photography was embedded into my life after that year. I started to get some assignments and my first wedding was a fact. I loved it!
In the years that followed I visited numerous workshops and masterclasses from well known photographers to learn the skills needed to make stunning images. In 2011 I became a full time freelance photographer and did all kinds of assignments; family shoots; advertising and weddings and portraits. But after one year I decided to specialise in documentary wedding photography, because that was what I liked the most.
The satisfaction of creating images for generations to last is amazing. I hope I will be able to keep doing this for a very long time!
