Michael Van Gelder of Gelderland Productions rocks! To be honest, I was looking for another photographer in town with the same last name, but I accidentally called him instead and we were very, very happy with our experience. Along with booking a DJ, booking the right photographer can be a very stressful experience because you only have one chance to get it right, and you don’t really know what you’re going to get on that night for your own experience. So, we set up an appointment and was a little taken aback at his appearance (he looks like he should be onstage with his long black hair and he also does photography for rock groups), but all of our misgivings disappeared after we saw his portfolio. Beautiful, stunning work, so we booked him. Maybe it’s because we share the same first name? Anyway… On the day of, he showed up on time and appeared very professional. More importantly, when we weren’t specifically posing for photos, he kinda melted into the woodwork, but kept taking photos. It’s amazing all the things that go on at a wedding! Afterwards, when we were back in town and things had settled down, we saw the photos and both myself and my wife were extremely pleased with the photos he got. Like I said, you only get one chance to capture something like a wedding, and he not only got all the important photos perfectly, but he also has an eye for all the little moments that should live on forever. If you can, book him. I think he’s the best.
