the wedding experience

what's included in the packages 

photo coverage of your day

Your wedding day won’t feel like a stressful, rushed, all-day photoshoot. My approach is a perfect balance of collaborating with you to create photos that tell the story of your unique day and stepping back to capture candid moments. It’s about just being yourselves and having the most meaningful day of your lives.

all your edited photos

You’ll receive all of the edited full- and low resolution photos from your wedding day—delivered in an easy-to-use online digital gallery so you can view, download, print, and share your images worldwide. 

customised location ideas

 After discussing all your thoughts and ideas, I will suggest customised locations that fit your wedding day.

vendor recommendations

I'll share a list of go-to vendors: florists, makeup artists, hair stylists, DJ, and whatever you need.

personally designed timeline

Once the basics of your wedding day are, I'll use my expertise to craft a timeline that ensures that your day runs smoothly and we take images at the best times of day for lighting, seclusion, and weather and that your entire experience is better than you’ve even imagined is possible.

pre-wedding catch up

Whether it’s via Skype/ Zoom, over the phone or in person, we’ll make it happen!

This is where the magic happens!

Take some time to ready through the experience and my approach to decide whether we are a good fit - you deserve the best.

I believe that life is beautiful and I have a more untraditional, out-of-the-box approach to photography. 

What this looks like: I do my best work when I have your full trust to experiment. I don’t want a cookie-cutter perfect image, I want unique, grain, and light leaks. A variety of compositions, the in-between and authentic moments. Artful images you want to print and hang up on your wall - not because they’re perfect - but because they make you feel something.

My style is heavily focused on real moments. No awkward poses or  half-smiles, it’s the real good stuff. We create together. This isn’t going to be an afternoon full of posing. I’m not going to be directing you to turn a little to the right and smile at me, while obsessing over perfect poses and flawless attire. It’s way, way more than that to me. If you’re looking for a photographer to show up and get the typical, posed, smiling shots, we might not be the best fit.

Let's capture what makes your heart beat, together, beautifully and fiercely.

On your wedding day

I’ll arrive bright and early to settle in quickly and say hi to everyone before I start shooting. I want to make sure that everyone (especially you) is 100% comfortable and pumped for the day ahead

I’ll be the chameleon you want me to be – whether you want me to be the ringmaster herding everyone up for a shot, or to sneak around in the background, capturing all the natural, candid moments. No cheesiness or cringy, forced poses here!


Throughout your day, I’ll be weaving in and out to make sure I catch every precious moment, including moments that went unseen. That quick kiss at the dinner table or tucking that loose strand of hair behind your ear. All the moments that make your heart flutter.

“She captured our story so perfectly to reflect us as a couple.

I want to give a very special thanks to Heleen Photography. It’s so much more than a bunch of perfect poses. She captured the friendships, the family, the emotions, the special moments, the beauty, the ugly cries, and the ugly laughing she captured our day absolutely perfectly. If you want to remember every detail of your wedding I would strongly recommend her. Could not have asked for anything more perfect.

“Heleen displayed the most amazing set of photos after 4 weeks. 

From the first minute of chatting to Heleen, she was invested in my hubby and my wedding-to-be. She showed a keen interest in how we met and how we would like our special day to be captured. I met Heleen for the first time at my wedding and what a treat she was! She is so down to earth, which makes taking photos so much easier since hubby and I were super comfortable.

The photos were edited so naturally and captured every single moment perfectly ❤️ Thanks, Heleen!!

I would 10000% recommend her services to anyone needing a photographer! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"

The most beautiful photos with the best photographer. Felt very comfortable, she made it fun and made the wedding so much more special with the photos!

additional Services

If you’re a little camera-shy, it’s the perfect opportunity for you to practice being comfortable in front of the camera, in the lead-up to your wedding day. 

Not only is it an incredible way for us to have a bit of fun together without the pressure of a timeline or all your guests, but spending some time together calms the nerves, inspires confidence in front of the camera, and allows us to create beautiful keepsakes in a chilled atmosphere. Just the two of you, being you. Plus who doesn’t love a new profile pic! We’ll get to know each other, come away from it having a better sense of how we work together, and be ready to roll for wedding day.

Either way, I promise that we’ll have a lot of fun while we’re at it.

You’ll have beautiful images to add to wedding invitations or save-the-date cards!
