Thank you for stopping by. I see myself as a dreamer and nomad at heart. I never really planned to become a wedding photographer. My interest for photography grew from a love for travel while exploring new places and cultures. The beautiful complexity between people, emotions and places always fascinated me.
I love that weddings allow me to have a peek into people’s life for one day. I find it incredibly rewarding to be trusted to tell people's story on one of the most important days of their life. If you let me be part of your journey, I would love to immortalise your memories in a way that is honest, raw and timeless.
Although I grew up in Belgium, I moved to Australia in 2007 and today I feel very lucky to call the Blue Mountains my home with my wife Nastia, our gorgeous daughter Mia and our cat Frida. As my relatives all live in Belgium, we take this opportunity to regularly travel to Europe during summer time to see them and also photograph a limited number of destination weddings.
Some of my favourite destinations to date are Morocco, India, Tasmania and Siberia.
RAW, CINEMATIC, EMOTIVE & TIMELESS
My work can be described as raw, cinematic, emotive and timeless. When documenting people's stories, I like to take the back seat and play the role of a quiet observer. Light is the core of my work and I am always up for experimenting with it in an intentional and artful way.
When you look back through the photographs of your wedding day I want you to feel all the emotion of the day through the subtle details and overlooked moments that made it so special.
I photograph weddings because I love to share this amazing day with couples so if you connect with my work and would like to welcome me into your world for a day or so, I would love to hear from you!
Hi Damien and Anastasia, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such an incredible series of photographs. They are truly amazing, and far and beyond all our expectations, you have really captured the essence of the day. Liana and I are so happy with the outcome and we will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you.
Hi Damien and Anastasia, WOWOWOWOW I am so in love with every sigle one of these photos, literally in shock!!! I knew they would be incredible but I am honestly just so impressed by your work - you both are so extremely talented and we are so lucky to have found you! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, we couldn't be more grateful.
As soon as we met Damien and Anastasia we knew they were the perfect photographers to capture our wedding. They are so genuine, lovely, relaxed, and incredibly talented. They are also just the sort of lovely people you want to share your celebration with! Damien and Anastasia completely understood the mood and aesthetic we were after. The photos they produced are raw, candid and alternative in the photojournalistic style, but also with a sense of timelessness and elegance. Damien and Anastasia produced the perfect combination of modern and classic photos that you will look as lovely in 20 years time as they do today, and work above the "trends" you often see in wedding photos. We had an engagement session with them earlier in the year before our wedding, which was a great way to adjust to being photographed for us camera shy people (not to mention getting a wonderful set of stunning photographs without wedding garb), and on the wedding day they managed to capture every detail and intimate moment whilst barely being seen! Damien and Anastasia also have a great sense of adventure, which tied in nicely with our love of travel. Their sense of style and professionalism in everything they do is impeccable. I can't recommend them both highly enough.
