When it comes to weddings I love the journalistic style, blending in with the wedding couple, family and guests. Being unobtrusive and let the day unfold naturally whilst making sure I capture the signature moments. I strive to tell the complete story of a very special day from pre-wedding preparations to the festivities in the evening.

Having come here from The Netherlands I find myself surrounded by the most beautiful scenery and locations so as far as wedding portraits are concerned the inspiration is endless. For family shoots this beautiful landscape is my favourite backdrop. I am not a studio photographer, for family and pre-wedding shoots I like to go out to your favourite spot and photograph you in a location where you are totally at ease.

I invite you to take a look at my work at, my blog: or my Facebook page I have come from a graphic design/photography background and have done that combination for 15 years in The Netherlands. One of our studios biggest clients was the regional newspaper that was based in the same building. I did a lot of photography for the newspaper, that is where my interest for documentary photography comes from. I like to apply the same shooting style to my wedding photography.

The formal portraits understandably involve some degree of posing but for the most part I would like you to feel completely free during your special day without you being conscious of me being ‘in your face’ constantly.

It was a pleasure to work with Jeff, especially as we had put him under a lot of pressure to work on a type of wedding event that was not the usual standard wedding type. Also working with difficult lighting conditions inside the venue. He delivered excellent results for us and we would be happy to recommend his services to anybody. In addition to his professional services he is a really nice guy. Top marks for Jeff! Cheers

Working with Jeff Pardoen was a stunning experience due to his professional attitude with a very personal touch. He gave our wedding an extra dimension and let us feel comfortable all the time. The pictures were beyond our expectations and gave the exact impression from this special day. Thank you Jeff!

Wow! Just wow! Jeff is an absolutely fantastic photographer who shot our wedding on 5th August 2017. After our pre meeting shoot he knew exactly what we were after from our big day and took some incredible shots. Thank you Jeff for all the hard work you put in. Would definitely recommend Jeff for any event requiring some excellent snaps!

First of all my Daughter and I were asked to take part in my Brother in Laws pre - wedding shoot and wedding. Both of which were done by Jeff. The pre wedding photographs are amazing . As I'm sure the wedding ones will be too. Jeff was fantastic at both and every one felt at ease. Because of all of the above I booked Jeff for a photo shoot for my daughter . Again the photo's are amazing some staged , some natural and with a variety of effects. My daughter felt realy at ease and comfortable during the shoot. It was money well spent. I would definitely recommend Jeff Pardoen Photography . I have also booked another shoot for my daughter for next year ????

Jeff Pardoen Photography  Q&A

Company Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Stay sharp, keep a good look out for special moments unfolding and being able to adequately post-process the photograph to enhance the atmosphere.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

What do you have in mind regarding the pictures and how can I help you realise that vision?

What do you love most about your job?

Working with all different kinds of people. The variety of the venues and not to forget, getting to know the people via informal pre-wedding shoots which is also great. Weddings are the most fun, you have to be absolutely in the zone and perform on the top of your abilities.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to lift my photography to a new level. It always was second place to my work as a Graphic Designer but I wanted to focus all my attention to Photography and I haven't regretted it for a moment!

Why should our clients choose you?

I know what I am doing and I do it in a modest way. Wedding photography is about the couple and their wishes and not about the photographer. I like to stay in the background and capture moments preferably without people realising I am around. I am polite and know my place during a wedding and that is capturing moments without being in people's faces constantly.
