Wedding Bells in 2020! <3

No I'm not becoming a wedding photographer! Instead I'm getting married myself! :D

Never thought I would tie the knot at this stage in my life but I met someone who literally has turned my life upside down.

As you may have noticed it has been quiet since 2018 and that's because in August 2018 I got a new home, a new job and a new fiancee!

So even though this is happy news for me personally, my photography activities have slowed down considerably. All my attention currently is going towards my personal life and my wedding which is planned on 20 - 02 -2020. Nevertheless I will still keep on shooting my favorite bands like MaYaN, Epica and Ayreon. I will post new live shots on my Facebook page but this account will slumber for a while.

So for now I thank you all for the support and attention for my work and I hope to pick up my photography activities in the near future again! xxx Laili

Epica UK/Ireland April 2018 Tour Promo

As some of you may know I'm a huge Epica fan and I believe it is one of the bands I have shot most times since I started doing Concert Photography. It is also a band that has inspired me most in becoming a better live photographer because of their wonderful dynamic and therefore challenging shows to shoot live.

Therfore I am so proud I am collaborating on some of their Tour Promo material like the above UK/Ireland Tour banner for their upcoming tour and 1000th Anniversary show in 013 Tilburg NL on April 14th, 2018.

If you haven't bought your tickets yet go to before they sell out!

My pic of Rob van der Loo at NAMM 2018

When Rob van der Loo, bassplayer for Epica asked me for a pic a few weeks ago, I thought it was for a magazine. Today he tagged me on Facebook and turns out It was for a poster at NAMM 2018 for Rob's bass guitar manufacturer Sheldon Dingwall. How cool is that!

Dingwall is an exclusive manufacturer of beautiful looking and amazing sounding bass guitars. I am happy to have contributed to the promotion of such fine instruments! :D

Go to to see for yourself!

My favorite pic of Simone Simons <3

2018/1/19 This is one of my favorite pics of Simone Simons, beautiful and talented frontlady of Epica taken during their performance at Bibelot Poppodium Dordrecht NL 11 June 2017.

Actually this is a zoomed in detail from a much wider shot and I'm amazed myself how bright and sharp this detail is. Image specs: Canon EOS 6D / f/4 / 1/160 / ISO 1600

Couldn't decide on which of the two logo's I designed myself so I have added both :-)
