I believe in documenting your wedding as a story.

I am Madame Poppy. Let’s go on an adventure.

My name is Marije, I am a Netherlands based photographer. When I was little, I liked to draw every day. Mostly orca's and horses.

I get excited about forests, even when it rains. And fjords, pretty much everything about Italy (scenery, food, wine), farms, exploring, rugged landscape, English gardens and ofcourse my family: my dear soccer loving Yvo and our two little girls.

Photography is my passion. I photograph around 25 weddings a year and I love passing some wisdom. Along with my stylist friend Nailia from BEST DAY EVER Events I co-founded Portfolio Bootcamps abroad for photographers and stylists in the wedding industry twice a year.    

I would love to be part of your special day. To capture what is most dear to you.

My vision on love stories...

On your wedding day, I want to be a friend to you and your loved ones. To capture their characters and the moments that pass so quickly. To freeze the moment where your relatives are smiling, your best friends tear, the atmosphere, the details, the fun.

I also like to take you on an adventure. To walk around, spend some time together and take lots of awesome images on the go. Don't worry about posing, let's just go out hiking and be surprised. (If you looked at my work you will have noticed I like the great outdoors. So your shoes might get a bit dirty. But hopefully you'll thank me afterwards.)

I believe in documenting your wedding as a story, with artistic freedom. Generally I deliver lots and lots of images. Way too much probably, but when I select my images I always make myself think: if this was my familymember, would I like to have this picture, even when it might be somewhat similar to the previous? If the answer is yes, that will definitely make the selection, so be sure to free up some hard disk space!

If you think we are a perfect fit, please take some time to fill in the contact form and I will be in touch soon.

Destination Weddings

I like combining adventure with documenting lovestories and I love to travel anywhere for your wedding or elopement. So request a quote, get in touch! Up next : Morocco, Scotland, Italy, Norway.


Do you travel?

I love to travel anywhere for your wedding. My photography has taken me to Italy, Iceland, Norway and  up next are Morocco, Scotland, Italy and my all time favorite Norway again.

What countries are on your list, then?

So nice you asked! I would love to capture more lovestories in Scandinavia and Iceland, a tropical destination wedding, a forest elopement in Canada / USA and any other wedding adventure that includes combining breathtaking environment with a beautiful lovestory.

How many images will we get?

On an average wedding with 10 hours of coverage you will get 500+ images.

Can I select my own images for the wedding book?

Yes you can! In the online gallery you can select your own favorites and send them to me with the click of a button. When I receive a selection, I will show you the layout. You can have as much changes in the layout as you like, untill the book is perfect for you.

Do you work alone or with an assistent / second shooter?

Both! Most of the time I work alone, but I also work with skilled second shooters. Ofcourse the editing will be done in my signature style.

Can we keep our images offline?

Shooting weddings is my full time job. Therefore, I have to showcase my work to make sure future brides will find me. If you want me to keep your images offline I charge €2000,- loss of revenue. Of course, if there is a particular image you don’t want online, you can let me know  and I will keep it off the web.

Are you insured?


Do you have backup equipment?


What happens when you are in an accident, or get ill?

Luckily, I have a network with hundreds of skilled, professional photographers. We have special emergency facebook & whatsapp groups to take care of this. In the rare case of an accident or illness on my side, I will find you a skilled photographer to capture your day. The images will be edited in my own style.

How do we book you?

Fill in the contact form and tell me all about you and your elopement, wedding or lovestory. To book my services there is a retainer which you can pay for via bank transfer, iDEAL or bitcoin. If you like, after booking we can meet in person here in Apeldoorn. Usually brides outside the Netherlands will schedule a skype meeting.

Let me capture the moments that pass so quickly.
