I am Charlotte, 29 and based near Antwerp, Belgium, where I live with my husband Jef and our daughters Louise and Cosette.

My passion for photography was born over ten years ago, when I fell in love with analogue photography. I have had a passion for film-like looks ever since.

I am trying not to 'take pictures' but to make magic. In my editing I strive to recreate the magic of the moment, that was stolen by digitalising it.

I work as a full-time wedding and lifestyle photographer since 2014 and have captured over 60 weddings. I like the idea of privacy and this is why I keep sharing my wedding photography to a minimum. Moreover, each wedding is unique and deserves a creative approach.

 

I try to be a guardian of beauty and aesthetics at all time, but I love authenticity and genuine smiles. I will not interfere too much but rather capture things as they enroll before the camera without altering or styling them. I feel like it is my job to make those moments look good.

I learned a lot by working as a street style photographer in Paris. Paris Fashion Week was my playground. I was fascinated by all things eclectic - hence the name of the site, which was a fashion blog in my previous life. I was hunting for exceptional moments, exceptional people and exceptional gestures. Having a baby turned my world upside down and made me question my goals and passion. Amongst countless other things, our sweet baby Louise gave me more insight in 'capturing happiness', and therefore different photography work crossed my path. The first months with Cosette, our second daughter, were both a dream and very difficult at the same time. I feel like she has taught me a lot about raw emotions; being profoundly happy, and being profoundly sad.... And how they are both a part of life worth documenting. And that everything has beauty, if you look at it with love.

I am very grateful for every opportunity I received, for all the wonderful people I've met, for all the weddings I've shot, all those magical moments I was asked to preserve. I learned a lot from all of these experiences and gladly take them with me. At the moment, my focus lies on wedding photography. I am enthusiastic, dynamic and committed, loving every click and always smile behind the camera.

I am always on the outlook for challenges and collaborations.
