2. Time of the day

If you're planning to explore Amsterdam and want to capture those beautiful moments without the hassle of crowded areas, I've got a tip for you. I recommend booking your photographer in Amsterdam early in the morning. Why, you ask? Well, let me spill the beans!

Amsterdam is known for its stunning architecture, picturesque canals, and the famous blooms during tulip season. But hey, it's a bustling city, and sometimes it can get a bit crowded, especially during peak tourist hours. So, rise and shine, my friend! By booking a photographer early in the morning, you can beat the rush and have those iconic spots all to yourself.

Imagine strolling along the canals, the sun casting a gentle glow on the stunning buildings, and not a soul in sight. How amazing would that be? You can finally capture that perfect Instagram-worthy shot without any unwanted photobombs or interruptions.

Now, let's talk about the afternoon golden hour. It's the magical time when the sun starts to set, casting a warm and golden glow over everything it touches. It can truly transform Amsterdam into a breathtaking city. However, keep in mind that, as I mentioned earlier, Amsterdam can be quite busy sometimes. So, don't despair if you can't make it to the early morning session. The afternoon golden hour is still a great time to capture the beauty of the city, just be prepared for a bit more hustle and bustle.

Remember, whether you choose the early morning tranquility or the enchanting afternoon golden hour, Amsterdam is a city that never fails to inspire and captivate. So go ahead, book me as your photographer, and get ready to create some picture-perfect memories in the Venice of the North. 

3. How long? 

Lifestyle Route or Photo Session. While our Lifestyle routes start on 4.5hrs, the photo sessions can be as short as 30 minutes.

I find the best balance between exploring and enjoying a session in the 60 minute frame, and it is by far my favorite session. On 60 minutes we can walk to two areas nearby and have different looks in your pictures. 

A very important note:

Please, be early to your session. After 10 minutes from the booking time the session starts to run. We cannot guarantee we can extend the session, and if possible added time has a fee of €150 per each 30 minutes adding 10 images. 

Best time for the photo session in Amsterdam

Summer: 6am - 10am
