Here is the first blog on my new website and as a Amsterdam wedding photographer, I couldn't think of a better start than sharing one of my favourite moments of my career. I had the pleasure and opportunity to be a second shooter and below is a little introduction of...
AMSTERDAM FASHION, LIFESTYLE & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER
Telling your story through the art of photography
Hey! My name is Hoi Ling but you can call me Vivian. Confused? Well, Vivian is my English name and Hoi Ling is my Chinese name. I am a Hong Kong born British raised fashion and portrait photographer based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

“Vivian is absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend planned a surprise proposal in Amsterdam and worked with Vivian for months leading up to our trip. With help from Vivian, he found the perfect spot by the most iconic bridge. We had the most stunning engagement photos from the first moments after the proposal all thanks for Vivian’s calm and composed mannerisms. She made us feel so comfortable and had an incredible eye for each shot. We were so impressed with how quickly she edited our shots. We couldn’t have for a more perfect person to share our engagement with!”
Jules & Family
We booked a family session and were simply overjoyed with the pictures. Vivian captured our two quirky boys and us in no time and to perfection. It was super hard to decide on the best photos in the end as we liked them all. Her sense of colour and scenery is amazing and we will book another session soon for sure.
Vivian has the unique ability to comprehend what you want and to capture that in her shoots. It is not easy to hold a client accountable to their original request, but Vivian stuck to the original directive I gave to her in order to achieve the result I requested. Vivian’s photos have an effortless class about them, and a depth, which says all you need to know about her as a photographer. And what makes this even more remarkable is that her style of engagement with clients is warm and unassuming.

About Vivian, she is the cutest person I’ve ever met. She is very lovely, funny and so nice. For me and my boyfriend, it was the first time we’ve done a photoshoot together. We were very nervous but Vivian was so calm and helped us a lot! We were so comfortable around her on the beach. She is also very talented and had many ideas for the perfect photo! The photos are very beautiful, we are so in love with them!! For the next time, we will book her again!
Phi & Tim
My fiancée (boyfriend at the time) had planned a surprise engagement and photo shoot in Amsterdam with the help of Vivian and we could not be any happier with our experience! She was able to truly capture every emotion from start to finish through her lens and every photo came out beautifully. Not to mention, she was also amazing at helping us feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera as we are usually a little awkward when it comes to photos Vivian has such a great passion for photography and it’s definitely reflected in her work. We are so pleased with how well the photos came out and we will surely cherish them for years to come. We absolutely highly recommend her for any of your photography needs!
Lauren & Brandon
Book her! We did a couples photoshoot in Amsterdam and it was a blast! Viviane immediately made us feel at ease. She is kind, professional and an amazing photographer. She sent me over 180 images to choose from for her to edit and it was so hard to narrow it down. Not only was the photoshoot fun, but she also taught us so much about the city that we would not have learned if it weren’t for her. You won’t regret doing a photoshoot with her!
Sheena & Mike
Vivian is wonderful. She is professional as well as kind. We also really liked that she shared information with us about the city of Amsterdam. She made us feel comfortable. This was a very special moment that I am glad I will be able to cherish forever. I look forward to doing more photos in the very near future!
Book with Vivian, period! Vivian really knows how to get the best out of her subject within the pictures whilst ensuring the backdrops stands out just as much as the person. I booked a solo session and personalised it as I really wanted some pictures with the streets and landmarks I could see from outside my window. Vivian took this onboard (amazing!) and delivered exactly (and even more) of what I imagined in my mood board (that was in my head). I honestly look like a proper local in those shots, which I thought I would never be able to see in pictures – I don’t know many photographers who could capture that vibe but she sure did! Vivian is such a beautiful soul and a truly warm person to have a conversation with. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and cannot wait to book an experience with her for spring!
