whimsical rustic small town engagement

This engagement shoot is in the cutest location in the Netherlands, it looks like something right out of a children’s book!
From Chymo: “Mandy and Xiyuan came from Toronto to travel around Europe and had a crush on the little Dutch village Zaanse Schans the first day they visited. They immediately decided that an engagement session in this beautiful place is a must. Mandy contacted me at the same night, and we planned to go back there the next morning to take their engagement photos. It was definitely a compulsory decision for both of us but the results are worth every effort.
About Zaanse Schans: it’s a traditional Dutch village packed with windmills, barns, and houses built-in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries.”
