A Sahara in the Netherlands

Do you know that there is a Sahara in the Netherlands? Well, I didn't know either!
Not until I took part of a youth exchange, ReMOVEit, in the little town of Ommen. It looked like a cluster of gingerbread houses and the Christmas decor, although it was already February, was still on full display in the streets.
The exchange was all about body movement and, along with 60 other youngsters from all over Europe, we danced, jumped, moved to the rhythm of kizomba (I failed), tried acro yoga (I rocked), stretched, ran, did improv theater and a lot of other fun things.
Was it intense? Sure so.

But when I think about some funny moments they make me laugh out loud - still!

Nisa & David: engagement session

In August I shot my friend Nisa and David's engagement session, followed by their wedding. I've known them for years and I knew Nisa will plan everything to the tiniest details.
 
We set off for the tall, dark woods in Gorski kotar (Croatia) where the shoot was going to take place. The bridesmaid and groom were also with us, as well as a jumping hyperactive ball of fur known as Moony, who somewhat stole the spotlight haha. Even though we were afraid it might rain, the weather forecast was completely wrong: the sky cleared and  the sun peeked through the branches.

We brought all the customized wedding props with us and I shot them in the woods as well. The shoot ended up with portraits during the golden hour on Trsatska gradina, where the wedding would take place a week later. 

They wanted something unique. We created a fairytale in the woods together.

Personal journal

Hi everyone!

It's such a joy to have a freshly redesigned website. Still true to a minimal approach, but more colourful and, hopefully, better than the last one!

For tutorials and interviews with inspiring creatives there's my other blog, Mirrored Mag. If you're a creative person (or want to become one), hop over to Mirrored and stay tuned! :)

The blog on this page, however, will be more of a personal journal. I have so many photographs and stories that I want to share and I hope you will find them entertaining!
