I’m Raisa Zwart, a fine art film photographer from the Netherlands, shooting intimate weddings & adventurous brands and travels worldwide.
I love the beach, Yoga, Moroccan food and of course telling stories with my camera.
Destination weddings are my absolute favorite event to capture as they bring together my passions for photography, people and traveling.
I focus on telling a complete story filled with detail and love and make sure memories are captured and curated into an heirloom wedding album that will be passed on for generations to come.
I have shot a lot on film in the past – mostly on Fuji Pro400h with my Pentax 645N – and when I was looking for a digital option with more of a film look, Fujifilm came to mind.
A little over two years ago, I switched to Fujifilm. I bought two Fujifilm X-T2’s and photographed a lot of weddings with them.
Now, I’ve had the chance to add the Fujifilm GFX 50R to my camera bag and am absolutely loving shooting with that camera.
Fujifilm, and the X-series cameras, for me, ensure I can focus on my creativity and the people in front of my camera while shooting. I love shooting with Fujifilm and am therefore so proud to call myself a Fujifilm X photographer now.
The lenses I use are primes, I’ve only ever used primes because of their quality and shallow depth of field.
I use the Fujifilm 23mm f/1.4 and Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 on my Fujifilm X-T2, and the Fujifilm 63mm f/2.8 and an old Minolta lens (Rokkor 50mm 1.7) on my Fujifilm GFX 50R.
I use an old Nikon flash (SB 800) but only at wedding parties and I love the Holdfast Moneymaker to have my cameras ready to shoot whenever.
My images are bright, colourful, full of love and details. I love shooting weddings, campaigns for fashion brands and beautiful places around the globe.
I used to only shoot travel photography for myself but since a year ago I’ve been selling prints of my travel photography work on Society 6.
I find my inspiration in nature, love stories and life itself. And next to photographing, I love coaching other photographers. I help them use their creativity and create a business around it.
