Bouquet of paper and bride and groom on bicycle

One more week promising good here on the blog. Today’s post will tell (and show) about the marriage of Sophie and Jimmy, a super-bereaved couple who went over the formalities and traditions of a marriage.

Bouquet of paper and bride and groom on bicycle. Love. Joy. Friendship. Complicity and a very warm day. This somewhat sums up the marriage that took place on June 10, 2017 in Houthalen, Belgium.

Sophie chose to wear a short dress. According to her, long dress does not look anything like the personality she has. Her daughter was present the whole time, helping in the preparations and keeping the laughter in the house. The longer the time came, the more anxious mother and daughter became.

The fiancé, Jimmy, appeared by bicycle to fetch the bride. He brought the bouquet of paper made by himself and lots of love. When they saw each other, Sophie could not hold back the emotion.

From there they rode by bicycle, followed by some guests, to the city hall. Only 5 minutes away from their house and a beautiful day to enjoy. The story follows without much secrecy for the rest of the day. Lots of happiness involved and lots of love. Grooms, now married, went on to the couple session, reception and bbq.

Lots of beer, meat, music and laughter. Perfect combination for a sunny day in Belgium.

Destination wedding in Portugal? France? Italy? Brazil? Tell me about your dream and we’ll plan the best way to record it together.

Wedding with no formalities in Genk – Belgium

Hello! Another cool post from a super wedding that happened in Genk, Belgium. Yvette and Hans asked only one thing: “Do your job. It was for it that we fell in love and you’re the professional”. I was so happy to hear that. Of course that the clients who come to me search exactly for the style of pictures that I take, but leaving me totally (really totally) at ease during one of the couple’s most important days is more complicated. When I say this it is because customers usually direct a little what they expect from the photos. Which does not bother me at all.

Yvette and Hans chose not to pose with their friends. Official pictures only with parents, siblings and witnesses. The pictures of the couple lasted between 20 and 30 minutes and for them that was already enough.

I love that trust that is placed in me and in my work. I feel freer to create and capture the best moments of the couple’s day. Even though they do not want to take posed pictures, there is no lack of common sense for the photographer to have all the invited guests registered. And it does not mean that the guests do not want to pose for the photographer 😉

That day everything flowed as it had to flow. And after the couple got the pictures, I was even happier with the message they sent me, saying they loved the result and that was exactly what they expected, that they were extremely pleased.

So as not to boast, I’ll let you check a little of what happened while I was there.

And for more information on budgets and how I work, please contact us here.

Have fun with the pictures that I took in Genk

Pictures for the wedding invitation

Pictures for the wedding invitation.

A couple who already have a long standing story to tell. Femke and Kenneth make a beautiful pair. The companionship, love, and dedication they have to one another is visible. This session was held before their wedding, which took place earlier this month in July, here in Belgium.

The intention was to make the wedding invitation with one of the photos. Purpose accomplished!

For the photos, we went to the place where the civil wedding was held, in Lanaken. Domein Pietersheim is a famous green area among people who enjoy walking, cycling or simply enjoying nature.
We unite the useful to pleasant. And a session with this couple was fundamental to getting to know each other better and to have an excellent use on the wedding day.

Here’s the tip for the readers: get to know your photographer well and, if possible, take a moment before the wedding day to be photographed. On the wedding day the interaction is even more pleasurable.

Now I’ll let you guys enjoy the pictures of this couple. Soon a post about their wedding. Keep yourself online 😉

Sarah and Lars – when the bridesmaids are the couple’s daughters

Bridesmaids are always lovely, are not they ?! And when the bridesmaids are the couple’s daughters? It is even more special.

Sarah and Lars got married in March of this year (2017) and celebrated their happiness with their daughters, family and close friends.

The civil ceremony took place in Riemst city hall, in Belgium, and the religious ceremony took place in a church very close to the couple’s house, also in Riemst.

The bridesmaids represented their role very well. They even signed the “official” marriage document for their parents.

After all the bureaucratic and official part, it’s time to enjoy the party and the guests. It all happened in the De Kleine Graaf. Very well decorated, very well served and very well organized, the couple only needed to worry about enjoying their day.

As it is a very beautiful place, we chose to take the couple and family photos in the garden of the party venue. Check out the result of that day just below. Sarah and Lars were presented early in the spring with a very sunny day. And it’s as they say, everyone has what they deserve. And they certainly deserved that beautiful day.

If you liked our work, do not hesitate and contact us to find out how it works. From time to time I go to Brazil and I am available for trips around the world. All this to photograph your special day. Send an e-mail to: info@tamypimentel.com or contact us here.

About a family in Algarve

Hello! Today’s post is about a family living in Portimão – Algarve, southern region of Portugal.

Gabriela, Eric and Theodoro: a beautiful family, full of love, joy and disposition. We found ourselves in Praia da Rocha and took advantage of that wonderful place, with a beautiful light and an incredible sunset.

Teodoro was just over a month old and behaved so well. That small baby certainly brought even more light to the life of this couple.

About the session, we chose to stay only in Praia da Rocha. Which was a great idea. This beach in Algarve is beautiful by the combination of rocks and sea of clear water (like most of the beaches of this region :D). The grandma of the Teodoro was also there and we took some photos with her too 🙂

But we also had a moment of only photos of the couple. That’s when they surprised me with their love. I love seeing couples who are not ashamed to publicly show what they feel for each other, who take every second and enjoy the hug, the kiss, the affection…

Anyway, check out the photos below and feel the heart of this beautiful family.

P.s .: and for you that do not know yet, I am always available to photograph in any corner of the world;) Portugal is a leap from here in Belgium. Just like France, Holland, Germany, Spain, Italy …. 😀 contact us to find out how it works.

Kisses and until the next post!

A day of love

After so long without posting (I’m sorry) I’m back with a beautiful wedding. Today is a day of love!

Esther and Tom had 01 month to prepare everything. As they are moving to China, official paperwork had to come out faster. I, as a friend and photographer, was very honored to be able to take pictures of the couple’s beautiful moments and contribute a little more.

On 10/05 they held a civil ceremony in the city of Bilzen, Belgium. They chose to do something very small and only for the family.

For the photos of the couple we did not have to go very far. As this region of Belgium is full of wonderful landscapes, surrounded by nature, we have chosen to stay right here. And the result is the one you check below. Much love!

A barbecue soon after the ceremony was done by the father-in-law at the bride’s parents’ home, where they carefully decorated in a very intimate and romantic way. Esther is one of those dreamers. But let nothing be left in her head. She goes there and does it. And to represent well that each one should follow their dreams, several dream catchers were spread by the reception and delivered as a souvenir to the family after the event.

As I mentioned, Esther and Tom are great friends. Taking pictures of that day was more than special. Being surrounded by people who love life, nature and people makes our day be complete. This new journey they will follow will surely be filled with love, happiness and fulfillment of dreams.

Therefore, I wish the couple always the best vibrations and that is a stage of life full of achievements.

I hope that for you, reader, today is also a day of love. Be inspired by the love of other couples that is presented to you.

With love

After a long time I’m back with the pictures of this wonderful wedding that happened last summer, here in Belgium. Stephanie contacted me a few months before the wedding already with the certain that I’d be taking the pictures 😃

Our interview was super laid back. Because at the time I was also organizing my own wedding, we shared the same experiences and we had pretty much the same suppliers. Everything made with love.

On the day of Stephanie and Luc’s wedding we went to their house. The couple wanted to get ready together, in the same place. Relatives and some friends were there too, sharing the butterflies in the belly moments before the “yes”.

We went to the city hall to formalize the union of the two. From there we went to the place where ceremony, reception and party would take place.

A wonderful day, blue sky and perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony. Nothing could take away the beauty of this day, surrounded by people who shared the happiness of the couple. A union that happened in a relaxed way, with actors who have gone through priests to leave the environment even more in a party atmosphere. That was the couple’s choice.

Soon after the ceremony took place the reception, where the band Domino made the party. There was not lack of animation and good humor. Everyone had fun and day and night went as planned.

Stephanie and Luc, happiness always and much love to you!

With love!

Album and photography

Hi folks! Today’s post is about the importance of making an album after you get your pictures.

I give my clients the freedom to choose or not an album with the package that they opt for. Why? Because I really want them to hire me for the pictures itself. But I do recommend them to make an album after they get the pictures. Why? Because they will have forever the best pictures of that day in a book, feeling those moments one more time whenever they check it.

We all know that with the digital photography it gets a lot easier to have all the pictures stored in your computer. It’s nice to share them with family and friends via email, Facebook and other social medias. It’s fun once and a while to look at all those pictures again and live again those moments. But, tell me… how often do you really check your pictures if they are on an USB stick? How often do you take a look knowing that you have to turn on your computer, open the file and etc…?

I know, I know… An album is something not very cheap. But you have to consider the quality of that product. Your event was something really important to not be printed or to be printed on a very low quality of book.

So, consider again the chance to have an album the way that you want, designed by a professional and printed with quality. Your family and friends will love to see it. Remember, the place of a picture is on the paper.

Now, check out those pictures of albums and imagine your big day printed like this.

Comments are very welcome. If you agree or not, just let me know. We are all free to have different opinions 😉

Wedding and friends

When friends of you get married and you have the honor to take their wedding pictures. Today’s post is about Nele and Jasper’s wedding. Check it out!

Nele and Jasper are good friends of mine from Belgium and I had the honor to take their wedding pictures.  On 15 of October last year I spent the hole day with the couple: from making off until the party. And for sure we had a lot of fun.

The connection between this couple is just beautiful to see. And how their family comes together is unique.

One of my favorite pictures of the day is when Jasper sees Nele for the first time. His expression was just the best. And Nele… well, she was shinning. She was so happy that day that she couldn’t stop smiling.

Another beautiful moment was when Nele played flute during the ceremonie and Jasper wasn’t expecting. She plays in a band but for sure that moment made him very emotional 😉

The rest of the day went like planned: pictures of the couple, pictures with the family and fun. Since the ceremonies happened in Alden Biesen, we also enjoyed to use that beautiful location to take the pictures of the couple. After that we went to the dinner/party location to receive the guests and let the party begins.

To my friends Nele and Jasper: wishing you always good vibes. Thank you for the trust. Lots of Love to you two!

Family pictures at home

Hello 2017! To start this year with ideas, I’m posting today some family pictures at home.

This session happened last year (2016) and the pictures were used as a gift to the grandparents.

So, what did I do?

I basically just clicked. What I mean is: it wasn’t at all a formal session, like the ones that are asked to pose. And that is actually not my style of pictures.

Off course, there is a little bit of direction in case where to go, or some ideas of what to do. But, with kids, directions don’t really work. Then I let the kids free to do whatever they want.

And what you get in return is a lot of nice and spontaneous pictures. Even if you don’t expect or want the kid to look at you, that will happen naturally and that moment will be a beautiful one.

So, with this family wouldn’t be different. They where at home, they wanted to play and have fun. And that’s exactly what they did.

If they are in a place where they feel comfortable, it cannot go wrong.

I enjoyed that the kids felt comfortable in my presence and with the camera (that’s also important) and clicked details, moments of concentration and fun.

And that was the time that they actually started to interact with me and the camera, bringing even more nice images to the collection.

Check it out! 😉
