This lady, this photographer, great in one word! It started with a nice and warm introduction before our wedding. The presence of Fardo on our wedding day was great and then much too nice. That is certainly reflected in the photos. What a passion and enthusiasm. All beautiful moments, cheerful, but sometimes sad, are captured in a fantastic way. Thanks to Fardo, those memories have been portrayed beautifully! She understands her job like no other!

We would definitely recommend working with Fardo Dopstra! After getting to know Fardo and Erik, and having seen their photography skills and style with a cat photoshoot and a family photoshoot, it was a no brainer to hire them as our wedding photographers. Not only are they great people to be around, they have taken time to listen to our wishes and made every effort to make sure we would get the photographs and experience we wanted. In our case, this for instance meant that we did not do an engagement shoot, but instead did a photoshoot of our cats. We used these pictures on our invitations Read More and save the dates. We further decided we did not want to do any elaborate photoshoot during our wedding day, and instead asked Fardo and Erik to capture the day and our guests as best as they could. We ended up with a truly incredible series of photographs that not only captured all that happened during our day, but our guests, all the emotions and of course ourselves too. Without ever having to stand around for a long time or having to elaborately pose in front of the camera, we ended up with wonderful wedding photographs. In addition, several of our guests have commented on how fun it was to have Fardo and Erik around, and how impressed they were that they took so many photographs, without ever disturbing the flow of the day. We cannot thank them enough!

Fardo easily has one of the best eyes for photography we have ever seen. We recently spent two days shooting with her for our vow renewal in Iceland and the pictures we got back were absolutely stunning - not to mention the time we spent together was just lovely. What was really great was the amount of planning that went into our shoot that made the whole experience effortless, while making sure to stop off-schedule when she saw a great shot. Great pictures, great company, cannot go wrong or recommend her highly enough!!
