5 photo opportunities to capture Amsterdam bliss | Vacation photographer

These 5 hot spots in Amsterdam are perfect for creating those magical memories of your new engagement, family vacation or your honeymoon. So sit back and embrace Amsterdam with no worries, just magic!

When traveling to Europe, there is one destination that has it all. Elegance, serenity, freedom and history abound in the wonderful city of Amsterdam. Yes we’ve all heard about what Amsterdam has to offer within the “freedom” category, but there is so very much more to discover in this architecturally rich city.

Whether you bicycle from site to site, or stroll the picturesque canals, you are sure to find beautiful stops along your journey to capture. But instead of worrying about the lighting, the value of your camera, or if you charged the battery, there are options out there for you to sit back and simply enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of Amsterdam.

1) Amsterdam Canals

With over 1500 bridges throughout the city, you will find numerous opportunities and hot spots for outdoor photography at its best. Whether standing on one of the beautifully crafted bridges, or floating along the canals in a private boat, the atmosphere around you will dream up pictures of love and togetherness.

2) Leiseplein Square

Filled to the brim with cafes, boutiques and theatres, you can stop for a bite to eat and enjoy the hustle bustle of eaters and shoppers. People watching in this location is fantastic and people will be watching you as you nestle up to your loved one for some candid photos. Make sure you stop and enjoy a traditional Dutch pastry while you are there.

3) Vondelpark

This is one of the most breathtaking gardens in Amsterdam. Filled with tulips and roses, as well as ornate statues, it’s a photographer’s dream! Take an afternoon to enjoy the paths, relax and have a cup of tea from the Tea House in the park. Afterwords, enjoy a live theatre production and laze in the shade of a beautiful tree while your vacation photographer creates keepsakes for you to cherish year after year.

4) Holland Windmills

There are a few within the city of Amsterdam that you can visit. One is alongside the Amstel river. There is nothing more poignant to Dutch culture than the windmill. To this day there are still festivals celebrating the historic marvel. Wouldn’t a few portraits of these wonders be perfect in your photo album? A trip to Amsterdam isn’t complete without experiencing the sheer size of these windmills firsthand.

5) Keukenhof

Although this one isn’t within Amsterdam city limits, it is a quick jaunt 30 minutes outside, and worth every moment on the road. With over 7 million tulip bulbs planted every year, if you are looking for pops of color in your keepsake photos, then this is the place to be. With a professional photographer by your side, you can document every aspect of your love with tulips surrounding you and your family. From the traditional red tulips, to more rare blues and blacks, you can complement every outfit, every emotion and every moment of your stay in Holland.

Amsterdam is a magnificent stop on your itinerary and you will be blown away by the color, history, and scenery that this jewel has to offer. With a photo opportunity around every corner, you will be filled with excitement as you travel along the streets and canals of a place where the masters received their inspiration. Van Gogh would smile upon you for taking the time to truly enjoy Amsterdam and leave the stress that photographing your vacation can create, to a professional.
