Couple session in Bruges with Sunny and Ryan

Sunny and Ryan brought a bit of warmth with them all the way from California for their engagement session in Bruges a few weeks ago. We enjoyed the sunny day and tried to make the best of it. Bruges looks different when bathed in the sun – all the colours pop out, the green is even greener and even the wind seems pleasant 🙂 After a few hours walking around the small romantic streets and crossing the small bridges we finished our couple session in Bruges close to Vismarkt (fish market) close enough to the best places in Bruges to enjoy the famous Belgian waffles. And we did exactly that 🙂

Thank you guys for choosing me to document your love and I hope our paths will cross again!

As a wedding photographer in Belgium I have the unique opportunity to be able to travel and photograph people all over Europe and all around the world. This weekend the fate brought me to Austria, in the amazing Schloss Obermayerhofen. Although Sonal and Matthias live in London they decided to give all their friends a taste of their Indian and Austrian roots in this amazing location. When they told me about their plan, I knew right away that this would be a weekend I won’t soon forget 🙂 It was a crazy weekend long adventure for all who joined them. And it more than lived up to all their expectations 🙂
The wedding weekend started with an intimate outdoor ceremony in the fields close to the castle followed by a traditional Austrian party in the cottage nearby. The next day was all about the colourful Hindu ceremony. The traditional mandap was built outdoor under a big, hundreds of years old three next to the castle. The groom of course arrived on a horse 🙂 The bride was walked down the path to the mandap by her brother.
It’s always amazing to observe and document European and Eastern traditions mixing. One thing is sure thou – LBS graduates know how to party 🙂

Please enjoy some of my favourite pictures form the day.

What an amazing day it was! Ghent is always a perfect background for a wedding and the weather was certainly helping. Duncan brought his family all the way from Australia to marry Sarah in Kasteel van Saffelaere. And they brought the sunny and hot Australian weather with them 🙂 We started the day with the bride’s and the groom’s preparation in the amazing Marriott hotel. After the quick ceremony in the town hall we spend an hour shooting around the city and while taking a photo on a bridge in the centre we were suddenly surprised by a band of bagpipers who played a song for the newly married couple. How cool is that 🙂

Please take a look at a few of my favourite photos from the day here!

Finding true love is one of the most splendid things that could happen to anyone in life. Gloria and Erik are an example of this. They are together already for seven years! And what better way to celebrate that than a photo session in Bruges 🙂 They contacted me a few months ago with one request – We want sunset pictures in Bruges! As a photographer in Bruges I know how uncooperative the weather can be, but the day came and thanks to the amazing sunset their desire was fulfilled 🙂

Aurelie and Jean-Luc are such a gorgeous couple and I am so happy I got to document their story – from their engagement session last year to their wedding day a few weeks ago.

Paris is always a good idea! Audrey Hepburn was definitely right about this, so when Melanie and Adrian contacted me about photographing them in the most romantic city in Europe, I just couldn’t say no. They came all the way from Australia to do a honeymoon photo session in Paris and we spent the most amazing day walking around the city and taking photographs. Waking up at 4a.m. is always tough, but the morning light on Trocadero is just to die for and not having hundreds of tourists in your photos is always a plus 🙂

I can’t really describe the awesomeness of this day, so you’ll have to just go ahead and see the rest of the photos 🙂 Photographing the wedding of another photographer is always stressful, but Anke and Michael were so relaxed and easy going that they made my work incredibly easy. We started the day with the bride’s preparations in Borgerhout, Antwerp and later on finshed with a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and a crazy party in the Tuincentrum Van Gorp in Arendonk. I will be forever grateful for letting me witness and document your unique wedding day and getting to know your amazing family and friends. Why unique you might ask – well not every couple plans on camping on their wedding night with their closest friends 😉

Rosie and Akos wanted their friends and family to not simply attend their romantic farm wedding in Belgium, but also to have an experience they would remember the rest of their lives. I was lucky enough that they decided to book me to document this two day adventure that started in Brussels and finished in Cense de la tour farm in Walhain.

Rosie is from the UK and Akos is from Hungary, so they naturally decided to get married somewhere in the middle of the two countries 🙂 Their closest friends and their family all got to participate in their small and personal wedding ceremony and afterwords were surprised with a real fencing tournament! How cool is that 🙂 Photographing a wedding outside of the big city is always nice and we got to really enjoy our photo session in the fields around the farm.

Ivo Popov presents: Wedding in Grimbergen with Coraline and Johan in “La Ferme Du Puits De Sainte Renelde“.

For nine years already I have been so lucky to have found a job that I love, that allows me to express my vision and connects me with couples all around the world. One of those amazing couples were Coraline and Johan. I am so lucky that they decided to book me to document their beautiful (and chilly) day. I have always said that cold weather is so romantic, because it makes you wanna stay close and cuddle with your loved one 🙂 Coraline and Johan got married in the town hall of Grimbergen surrounded by their closet family and friends. All of them bravely endured the cold, but so beautiful weather afterwords, during our photo shoot outside! The party was held in the beautiful Ferme Du Puits De Sainte Renelde in Saintes. Amazing sunset, Chinese sky lanterns, beautiful first dance, crazy Photo Booth and dancing? Yep, we got them all 🙂

Thank you so much guys for going the extra mile and changing your wedding day, so I can document it! It was an honour meeting you and a pleasure spending the day with you!

Sometimes when you meet new clients everything just clicks into place and you know it’s going to be a great wedding 🙂 Tanja and Peter are such a cute and funny couple and I really enjoyed photographing them and their family and friends. I even found out that we share a common passion for the “Friends” TV series 🙂
They decided to get married in their hometown Aalst and despite the almost constant rain on the wedding day we were able to really enjoy our photo shoot outside. We even managed to do some shots at the train station and some at the local theatre 🙂 The party continued later on at Kaai 17.

There is so much love between these two 🙂 Bart and Philippe got married in Mechelen on a cold but sunny day in February and I was so lucky to be their wedding photographer.

Ghent Engagement photographer Ivo Popov presents Eleni and Mark in Ghent

It was such a pleasure to photograph engagement session in Ghent with Eleni and Mark. They came all the way from USA and picked Ghent as a place for the photo shoot. There are many reasons to pick Ghent as a place for an engagement session and it’s not just the pretty backdrop 🙂 They were very lucky with the weather and I was very lucky with such a cute couple as clients 🙂 We spend a few hours doing photos in the centre and at the end we got to witness the most incredible sunset. Good luck with your wedding guys, I am glad that I met you!

Brussels Wedding photographer Ivo Popov presents the wedding of Norma and Sary in The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai.

Norma and Sary’s wedding was just about four little words – love, family, friends and PARTY. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, Norma and Sary looked stunning, their wedding venue was hands-down gorgeous and the party was impossible to describe 🙂 It was such an honour to photograph a couple so much in love, so deeply connected, with such great friends. Since it’s really hard to explain the atmosphere, the colours, the music and the party in a few words, I will let my images do the talking! Thank you both for flying us out to Dubai to document this beautiful day.

Thank you Joshua for helping me on this one, thank you Cherry on Top Events for transforming the garden of The Ritz-Carlton to a magical wedding venue and thank you Deneemotion Videography!

Antwerp Wedding photographer Ivo Popov presents the wedding of Linda and Ken in Hof Van Reyen, Boechout

It was chilly, dark and sadly no snow at all, but I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun during a winter wedding. Linda and Ken wanted to have a Christmas wedding and it was great! I always try to tell my clients that cold weather is somewhat romantic, because it makes you want to be closer to your partner 🙂 I met Linda and Ken a few month ago at the gorgeous wedding of Dorien and Nicolas where Linda was a bridesmaid, but this time around it was Dorien who was the bridesmaid! If there is one thing I remembered from Linda and Ken’s wedding day is that pilots party like crazy 🙂 We got some of the craziest wedding photo booth pictures ever!
So, here are some of my favourites. Please enjoy!

Destination Wedding photographer Ivo Popov presents the wedding of Karine and Wim in Sao Miguel dos Milagres, Brazil

Love, relationships, family, friends. This is what weddings are all about and this is what made this one so special – the amazing love Karine and Wim share with each other, the deep bond they have with their families, the amazing friends they had celebrating with them. There are so many words rushing into my mind when trying to describe their wedding day, the intimate ceremony at the edge of the Atlantic ocean, the glorious light from the setting sun, the laughter of friends and family, the sound of the waves.
As a wedding photographer I am tasked with the job of translating all that into a visual heritage, images that will be important not only for the people who attended Karine and Wim’s wedding, but also for the people who are not born yet.

Thank you Karine and Wim for the amazing opportunity to photograph your destination wedding in Brazil! And one last thing: Ain’t no party like a Brazilian wedding party 🙂 Enjoy!

I met Sarah and Arthur in Belgium a few years ago and I photographed their amazing wedding in “Le Palais de Plume” shortly after that. It was a great event and they are were a nice couple. We eventually stayed in contact and I was lucky enough to photograph them again in Dubai a few weeks ago. We spend a few hours in the desert outside Dubai next to a great little place called “Bab Al Shams“. The sunset in the desert is always a magical experience. The dying light changes the colour of the sands and the sky almost every minute until finally everything becomes pitch dark.

My 2014 was hands down amazing. I traveled more that 70,000 kilometres, I photographed weddings on three continents, I made friends in the jungles of Brazil and the deserts of India, I took part in events I will never forget, I enjoyed the sunrise over Ganges, the sunset over the Pacific, I observed ceremonies thousand’s of years old and witnessed so much love and so much happiness and it makes me incredibly proud that I was part of it all. 2014 was a year for some big developments both professionally and personally.

It’s just too much to put it all into words.

I can’t wait to see what adventures 2015 will bring and most importantly I can’t wait to look into the eyes of my baby daughter for the first time. 2015 is going to be soooo awesome 🙂

Please enjoy some of my favourite images from the past year.
