I strive for excellence in artistic photojournalism. Color work captures beauty in both the individual hues and the picture’s narrative, while black & white photography allows emotions in the pictures to shine. Though every portfolio of pictures tells a story, I ensure each image communicates individually.

I specialize in photographing weddings, families, and especially children. I developed my photography skills through exploring the countryside since my move to Virginia from the Netherlands in 1999. I completed veterinary studies in Europe and photography studies at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC. I find joy in sharing special events with so many remarkable families.

I seek to capture a moment in life when the essence of each person is not only seen, but felt. I strive for unobtrusive photography, to best allow people to feel comfortable and at ease. Clients frequently tell me, “I never knew you were there.” Read less

we hired Saskia for our wedding.....she was AMAZING!!!! we loved the classic look to her photos - and upon meeting her it was no question that she just HAD to photograph our wedding. She is so fun and talented and her personality is infectious. We couldn't have imagined working with anyone else. To add to all of this awesomeness.....she got the photos back to us super quickly!!! This was especially wonderful since we had a "social media free" wedding - so pretty much the first photos we got to see of our big day were Saskia's. Everything was perfect and we will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you Saskia!

Absolutely wonderful photographer!!
Saskia did an amazing job capturing our special day! Despite the freezing cold temperatures and brisk wind, she never let it interfere with her work and was extremely professional. When we were an hour behind schedule, Saskia gracefully guided us through the reception, capturing all of our requested "Pinterest-esque" photos, which all came out perfectly! We could not be happier with our photos and cannot wait to make some large canvas prints from them. We could not have asked for a better photographer! We will be in touch one day again I'm sure for future photos! Thanks Saskia! XOXO-Caitlin and Chris

THE BRIDE:
My husband and I were fortunate enough to have Saskia be our photographer at our wedding on October 6, 2012. She was amazing. She was the exact right person for our wedding. Saskia kept us on time and moving through the entire day so that we could get all of the photo shots we had asked her for. I loved that she could tell us what to do in an extremely pleasant way and would let us know if we needed to stand up straight or face a different direction. This was our first and only wedding and had no idea what we were supposed to do. Saskia has so much experience and guided us through the entire process. When we received our photos, only one word came to mind and it was "magic." She capture every precious moment of the day and looking through the photos just brought the entire day back to memory. There was so much color that I never noticed and she captured it all. We are extremely grateful to have had Saskia at our wedding. We look forward to having her photograph other monumental events in our life.
THE GROOM:
Saskia was a wonderful choice for our wedding. In addition to being a top-notch photographer (and we reviewed many of the best in the DC/Baltimore/VA region), she brought so many other things to the table. She knew the Middleburg area vendors very well and was able to make recommendations for our cake, our DJ, etc. that were excellent (we used almost every recommendation). She also had a great personality and established a chemistry with my now wife, which eased the stress of the day and also showed in the photos. When we received the photos and shared them with family and friends, everybody raved about them and we heard several times that they looked like they were straight out of a bridal magazine. We were also very pleased with her flexibility on album options. Overall, she was a vital part of our wedding and went well beyond the role of photographer and we couldn't imagine having gone with anybody else.

Saskia is amazing! She was like having a friend with us all day... letting us know where to go and when to smile. We were so sad when she left at the end of the night. We got the pictures back and they are spectacular! My husband and I don't feel that we are photogenic, but she made us look great! She is so professional and we would recommend her highly.

Saskia was wonderful to work with and the photos she took came out AMAZING! My husband and I tend to take terrible pictures together but somehow she was able to make us look amazing anyway and we had a blast while working with her! One of my bridesmaids recently got engaged and practically stopped the whole shoot so she could get her information to use her at her wedding next summer, too! I cannot recommend her enough, she is amazing at what she does!

Saskia, from the moment i met her i knew she was going to be perfect for our relaxed outdoor country theme wedding! She wanted my wedding to be everything i dreamed of in every detail! She was the first photographer i met and booked right away and i am so thankful i didn't look around! She knew the venue i was working with and knew all the places to take wonderful photos. Even if she hadn't ever been to the venue before, TRUST HER...day of the wedding she was judging where to take pictures depending on way the sun was, shade, etc. She is a really great photographer! Unfortunately we were unable to get together for engagement photos due to short engagement/other schedule conflicts but WILL be calling Saskia with ALL future photo needs!! She was amazing, snap snap snap all day long 9 hours straight at our wedding. She has an eye for details for sure! We just received the pictures and there are too many good ones to choose from!! Everyone in the family was impressed with Saskia! So personable, relaxed, snapped pictures with a SMILE on her face all day long...3rd wedding in 1 weekend! Id be exhausted but she kept going!! Truly a WONDERFUL photographer!! Expensive, especially for only one photographer, but well WORTH IT! All you need is SASKIA!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

We were absolutely thrilled with Saskia as our wedding photographer! We got married outside at the end of June (when it was about 105 degrees out – we’re crazy!) and Saskia managed to get the whole bridal party laughing for all of our photos! She managed our interesting family dynamics with grace and poise, taking all of the group photos and combination of families that we wanted. She captured all the important moments of our wedding day but, more importantly, her photos really captured us at our best and show the joy that we were experiencing. I could not recommend Saskia more highly – she’s kind, thoughtful, talented – a joy to work with! I will wholeheartedly recommend her to all of my family and friends – she really was amazing & we love our photos!!!

I met Saskia at a bridal expo in VA and from the moment I met her I just knew that I wanted to have her as my photographer for our wedding day. She was very nice and had such a bubbly personality. Her work that was displayed at the expo was just AMAZING!!

We ended up choosing Saskia as our photographer. We are so happy we did, she did such a wonderful job. Our pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL!!! So many of our guests complimented us on our photographer the day of and were blown away when they saw the actual pictures (which by the way didnt take long at all) :)

I highly recommend Saskia, she is very easy to work with and she is so great at what she does. She is very creative!!!
