Hi! I’m Nele, a photographer based in Gent, Belgium.

Most days you can find me laying in the grass while my kids are jumping on the trampoline (sometimes I join!), working in my home studio with good music or a podcast playing in the background, or gathered around our big table with friends laughing and enjoying each others company.

I am mama to two amazing humans - Rein + Siebe. Rein is my firstborn and along with making us laugh everyday, her curious heart bombards us with ‘why’ questions hourly.  She is compassionate and complex, constantly keeping me on my toes and melting my heart. My littlest, Siebe, is also the hungriest in our family and never fails to ask if he can have a cookie about every 15 minutes of the day. (I hope you look at each other the way Siebe looks at a cookie - with the deepest affection. :D)

Curiosity is a driving force in my life. I adore travel and seeing the world in which we live. I believe it is curiosity that makes me love wedding photography so much. Being drawn to funny things that happen on a wedding day or family photoshoot, capturing the subtle gestures and expressions people use to communicate with one another and all the unexpected moments that color the day, make me happy.

And now enough about me. I hope to know your story, how in this great wide world you found one another, and be there for you on your wedding day, or any day you’d like to see documented!

Here are some daily behind the scenes!
