love shoot: industrial chic {arusha & arjen}

Today’s edgy, urban couple shoot in Rotterdam was captured by talented Dutch wedding photographer Anouschka Rokebrand.  I love featuring Anouschka’s work on b.loved her clean, contemporary yet pretty style makes beautiful images, and most importantly she knows how to capture love.  In Arusha and Arjen’s shoot in Rotterdam, an industrial urban city in Holland, she contrasts the rough urban textures with the softness of love and romance.

Arusha and Arjen met during a school trip to the theatre more than 12 years ago.  They exchanged looks during the show, and in the interval Arusha gave her phone number to Arjen. The rest, as they say, is history!

Arjen proposed last year, in Iceland, where they did a stopover on their way to New York City. Arjen had everything prepared and the beautiful Spa in Iceland was in on Arjen’s proposal plans. Arusha however, had other plans. Arjen tried to coach her to the location where he wanted to propose (champagne was on it’s way at a certain time) and he had the ring safely tucked away, but Arusha was interested in going anywhere and everywhere except for the spot Arjen wanted her to be!  He then had to force her to sit down and it started to dawn on her what was happening. Arjen proposed, Arusha said yes and the champagne arrived!  In May they will say “I Do” at a beautiful venue in Arnhem, The Netherlands.

Don’t you just love the light in this last set of images, yummy!



I have always been a creative soul, from glitter-filled art room projects to a degree in Interior Design, followed by a decade working in the corporate world. I have a passion for discovering pretty things, an obsession with perfect details and a love for love. B.LOVED is a place I can indulge and share my passions; weddings, interiors, fashion, travel, family and beauty, things all women love. It’s without doubt I can say I have the best job ever!
