We believe in simplicity, capturing precious memories through images, and for our work to live on for generations to come. We are not for trends but for timeless and authentic images. We simply document you, your story. We are a couple husband and wife, destination wedding, portraits and interior photographers based in Italy.
Careful in the preparation
and reliable in agreements
Wow! Maaike and Damiano are making beautiful photos! Raw and pure photos that capture the beauty of the moment. They do this by moving at the background during the wedding with an excellent sense of timing in order to provide a reportage in the purest form. We regularly look in our photo album and all the memories and emotions of that day come back. We are grateful for the photos in a timeless style.
In addition to the excellent photos they have delivered, they are very pleasant company. Careful in the preparation and reliable in agreements.
We think she
is an artist
Maaike documented our marriage in Italy. It was very nice for us that she could communicate with us and the Italian master of ceremonies. We wanted her to capture the day without us being too aware of the camera. This is exactly what we have received, Maaike works relaxed and discreetly to a wonderful result, where she does not overlook anything or anyone because of her playful collaboration. The album that she had composed for us in which we did not have to adjust anything to relive our day. Maaike senses good about what you want from her, we think she is an artist.
Maaike did a marvellous job documenting our wedding and the baptism of our son. She was very discrete and careful during the day not to disturb the ceremony and take too much time out of our celebration for couple pictures. Even more impressive is the result.
We received a very complete documentation with beautiful pictures of the day presented on a tailor-made website accessible for all our guests which saved us a lot of time sending the images to everyone.
The photobooks are a piece of art and made us and our family very happy. Great Christmas present!
A woman who
understands her job!
It was very nice to work with Maaike during the preparations. We had contact beforehand, because she wanted to get to know us and know what our wishes were. This personal attention is reflected in the photos and that makes her a woman who understands her job! She took the time for us and on the day she managed to be on the background so that we hardly noticed she was there and we could enjoy the big day. Maaike came up with some good ideas for the shoot and they were a perfect setting. We regularly look back in the photo album. One glance at a picture and we are back in beautiful Tuscany!
and comfortable experience
We had a very good and professional yet comfortable experience from start to finish. Maaike listened to what we wanted (and what we didn’t want!) and was more than happy to give us options and ideas that we hadn’t thought of.
During the ceremony and reception it was like she was invisible so it was relaxed which is what we wanted. We did have some family shots and some beautiful pictures together - we are so pleased with the finished photos. Would highly recommend Maaike!
Natural wedding pictures
It was a very special day for us and we couldn't be happier that Maaike was there to record it all. She is truly talented and genuinely loves what she does!
Maaike and her husband Damiano have great eye for detail and great ideas for pictures. It all feld really natural and easy, no forced poses for the pictures. Already a few days after our wedding we received a preview. These pictures were amazing and it is so nice to have some professional pictures to show to friends and family right after the wedding. After some time we received all pictures and we were so happy with the result.
We would highly recommend Maaike if you want a relaxed and friendly photographer at your wedding and if you want natural wedding pictures that look amazing!
Thank you Maaike and Damiano for everything!
Valuable and unerasable
memories remain tangible
You have captured the special moments of our marriage in Italy in a fantastically beautiful way. Through your photos the valuable and unerasable memories remain tangible.
We really felt
We are very happy that we documented our Silver wedding by Maaike and Damiano, beautiful pictures were taken on this special day. Maaike & Damiano are very professional photographers who have captured the most important moments in a natural and relaxed way. They made us feel comfortable. They stayed on the background and work in a modest way, in opposition to many other photographers we've seen in the past while working in the catering industry. We have received many compliments on our pictures, and really felt like protagonists. You have captured all the aspects of this beautiful day.
