about your photographer
MARCEL VAN DER HORST
I provide a great value service with a personal touch. What you get are photographs that contain passion, emotion and a perfect reflection of who you are. I’m looking for couples with big love, wild at heart, down to earth, and romantic. I do what I do for legacy, photographs hanging on your wall or in an album are created for future generations, not to be lost in a drawer or to be a brief blip on the internet.
What I can do for you…
Choosing a wedding photographer can be a difficult and confusing experience, with so many different coverage options, pricing levels and questionable levels of experience. With over 11 years of photographing weddings here and abroad, including experience with a leading studio, a simple to understand pricing structure, I am happy to offer advice in planning your day when it comes to timing and how you would get the best value out of my presence. I am there to capture the love, the celebration and the fun by being with you for nearly the whole wedding day. You get the Digital Files regardless of what wedding collection you choose and you have your images presented to you as a gorgeous gift like no other along with a beautifully featured gallery to share with friends and family. Call or email to make an appointment for a consultation to chat about your vision for the wedding and so I can show you my album and print samples.
I service Metro Melbourne and all over Victoria, Interstate and international services are available on request with travel fees charged at cost. I regularly visit the Gold Coast and Europe, so attractive rates are available depending on schedule. I am also available for private commissions including Engagement/Elopement Sessions, Vehicle Shoots, Business Photography (products, services, premises and staff), Architectural for builders, interior designers, architects and private real estate listings. I also offer video for the above. Consultations are held in an office space in Ringwood or can be hosted over Skype or Apple Facetime.
Don’t just take my word for it, see below what previous clients have said:

Having a video record of your wedding is getting increasingly popular. As I will be taking the still photographs of your day, I can hire a trusted sub-contractor to film your wedding, the greatest benefit being, there are no additional meetings you have to attend, all fees are on one invoice and you also save money over hiring someone directly as they have less admin to handle. Prices start at around $2495 for 6hour coverage and highlight film. I only use trusted vendors I have worked with before as our conduct on the day has work together in symphony and fit my approach to the day. This can be discussed in more detail in your initial consultation.
