A Dutch Fairy Tale: Tulip Fields and Magic Park

Yi and Dong come from China but met each other and got married in Rotterdam. Their wedding took place in January and they decided to hold a separate romantic “trash the dress” photo session in the spring.

Yi and Dong wanted to walk among the tulip fields of Lisse and the windmills of Kinderdijk and, of course, in Rotterdam itself – after all, this is the place where their love story had begun! An ambitious programme for one day and we have indeed covered all the dream locations!

Early in the morning we were at a tulip field in Lisse. Spring started early this year, and many bulb fields are already empty. Shortly before the day of the session Dong and Yi spotted a lovely field of red tulips that were still in full glory. Red is a great color for a love shoot and is also a lucky color in Chinese tradition! Perfect for Yi and Dong!

As we drove further we passed the Keukenhof castle and decided to take a photo walk in the beautiful castle park. It was most romantic with all these flowers and blossoms in full glory.
