Trouwerijen en Bruiloften

Ga je trouwen en ben je op zoek naar een huwelijksfotograaf? Dan ben je hier aan het juiste adres! Spontane, lieve, romantische, gekke & net-even-anders TROUWFOTO’S met een hele enthousiaste fotografe!

Ik ben Braziliaanse en woon sinds 6 jaar in Volendam, Nederland. Als vrijwilligster en moeder geniet ik ervan om andere vrouwen te helpen en hen te motiveren om hun talenten te benutten.

Vanaf 2005 ben ik fotografe en sindsdien heb ik een redelijk aantal verschillende paden uitgeprobeerd in mijn zoektocht naar datgene wat mijn hart het sterkst doet kloppen: het vastleggen van de liefde. In mijn leven en mijn werk is deze zoektocht naar betekenis altijd mijn drijfveer geweest.

Sinds vier jaar heb ik het voorrecht om fantastische koppels vast te mogen leggen terwijl zij hun gezamenlijke reis met een huwelijk bezegelen en zij hun relatie naar een nog hoger niveau van toewijding, onderzoek en duurzame liefde tillen. Met trots kan ik zeggen dat ik tijdens deze prachtige belevenissen bovendien enkele belangrijke Huwelijks Awards mocht winnen.

Ik streef ernaar om blijvende herinneringen vast te leggen, waarbij ik altijd zoek ben naar een balans tussen het rauwe en het verfijnde, maar ook naar een balans tussen het geregisseerde en de werkelijkheid.

In de Wedding Packages zijn inclusief Verloovingshoot + Wedding Album

Ik Kras Op!

After 46 years of an unconditional committed work  to his family business, Henk Kras has passed his baton to the next generation!

To celebrate it, an unforgettable evening party was prepared and done last Friday at the Kras Stadion in Volendam – a celebration with family, friends and co-workers. Many  thankful words, videos and a delightful buffet was served – not to forget the fantastic presentations by Volendams Operakoor, and Jan Smit to close the night!

The company possesses the expertise to manage company’s waste streams more effectively, also been designed with sustainability in mind. Great values passed through generations. For more information, check out their website Kras-Recycling.

Mr Kras, a pleasure to see you again! A deep admiration to your character, to your family values and for what you have done for the city!

Dora, thanks again for the invitation and opportunity!

xoxoxo, Helen


Shanna & Sonny

It is vicious and I said and I will keep on saying it… the wedding experience is something magical, excited, nervous, unpredictable and yet adorable and absolutely magnificent in all the aspects.

At springtime of their lives, Shanna en Sonny engaged to live together. I can image their feelings since the beginning, something like “let’s celebrate in the best way possible”. Maybe, in reality, it was not like that but certainly, the day had this atmosphere from begging to end.

Dear Shanna and Sonny! I would like to drop only feel words, which actually scape me at this moment… I was overwhelmed as always with feelings of gratitude and happiness, for the opportunity to photograph your amazing wedding and contemplate your happiness among your loved ones. I had a great time and looking at the photos was just difficult enough to hold the emotions. I hope you may be transported back again to this day as you look into the pictures. Keep on sharing your love with others and I wish you all the happiness and love in this world. Life will be a party everywhere you go! For the colors, the angles, the party, the amazing family you have and friends, I say THANK YOU!

xoxoxo, Helen Navajas

Annet & Iwan

Sometimes it is hard to describe what one feels during a wedding… I try to explain in one word: vicious. You can never have enough of it!

Difficult as well is to register the day and tell a story with images. Describe love, partnership, union, friendship, family bonds without being involved and let some tears in the way.

Indeed it was an amazing day among these two beautiful people together with their family and caring friends. From the preparation as we arrived, Annet’s parents were busy decorating their house, car and later on, Annet’s friends came by also to help. Love and care!

As the preparation went by there were moments of silence were I also stop and contemplate. Annet’s mother watched from far away her daughter and grandchild – and it was beautiful just to capture it! My dearest friend Maria went to see Iwan and register his preparation. When we went to the photoshoot and we had time to talk, I curiously checked out the photos and cried out my emotions! How amazing!!!

And more…

Long ago Annet told me of her appreciation for architectural photos and in our photoshoot we had a bless with so much space to “play” within all geometric forms! Not only that – to see two people in love and entangled! Uncompromised smiles, a sort of intimacy you dream about it and appreciate to witness!




She gave me a powerful look that was stunning!



And Iwan was not far from it!!



Annet and Iwan! What a honour to be part of this day in your lives! How amazing to just be there and celebrate with you! Many times my eyes were blurred by tears, to watch you, your family… when I saw your friends at the end of the ceremony distributing the bubble bottles! Love and care everywhere and in little details! I wish you to keep on sharing your happiness with your loved ones! The world is a happier place with you!

Many thanks to Maria Formigos for the beautiful work, your family and friends and the lovely employees of the Edam’s Fort.

Sylvia & Berry

I still remember when Berry and Sylvia came by to talk about their wedding, their planes and of course the wedding reportage. Two young people, happy and engaged to make a memorable day.

Indeed it was! The day started early and Sylvia looked ready to rock. Sylvia’s mother Huib offered me something to drink and as she saw me taking photos of details, she pointed out some other ones, those sorts of details only perceived by mothers. They know EVERYTHING and all the little particular things, reading your mind! They always offer you that other perspective, a certain look filled with love. So do children!

Sylvia’s little niece Lisa was a sweetheart. I can imagine what comes to a child’s mind at that moment, their shining eyes perplexed by the white dress. This wonder, this excitement of the first time!! Magical, priceless. Sylvia asked Lisa to show me the dress – I would even dare to say that Sylvia “created” this photo, just like she knew what it was about to happen.

I’ve seen similar photos. The charm here lays in the fact of being there – to experience wonder in its pure form!! How amazing! Life is made by little moments where we are blessed to be merely spectators.


Inside the dress…


It was time to photograph Berry. When I arrived to his parent’s house and introduced myself to his mother Lia, she told me “Berry does not want to wear the tie”!!  Have I said mother’s know EVERYTHING? Yes, they do!

At that point, I haven’t even thought of what to say something or when. Funny enough and very appropriated, when shooting the suit, he mentioned to remove the tie from the composition.

Probably I said “Berryyyyyy” very loud and emphatic, dramatic Helen on her solo act –  which seemed to work… I am Brazilian after all, just realize my over-the-top reactions after some days 😉  but please believe me that they are all full of love and appreciation!

I love this one too…

There he comes! The first look of the bride and groom … then time to go!

Wasn’t she stunning?

The wedding ceremony would take place at the Lighthouse in Marken; together with family and close friends we departure  from Volendam on board the Vriendschap.


Surrounded by stunning views of the water, we were blessed by an amazing blue sky above us!
