“The camera captures images, the photographer captures moments.”

- Victor Winklaar, Your Aruba Wedding Photographer

 

My name is
Victor Winklaar


I'm the owner of Aruba Wedding Photography (AWP) on the island of Aruba.

With a click to my shutter, my passion is to produce a beautiful record of your day and reflect your moments at its best.

More than simply documenting any occasion, I intend to work with you to create a memorable photography experience for your Aruba wedding.

One that will capture the essence of your moments, to preserve memorable bliss that you can bring home and keep forever.

My work in the press

Our work in Aruba has been published and featured in magazines, newspapers, and destination wedding blogs, both local and abroad.

My personal life

When I was a kid I wanted to be a pilot, and although that didn't pan out, I have been able to quench my thirst for travel more than I ever dreamed. I grew up in Aruba, went to school in Boston, married a woman from Singapore, and my passport has more stamps than I can count.

I love experiencing the unique essence of each place I visit—there’s something so incredible about stepping outside your comfort zone and experiencing something new, especially if you get to share it with people you love.

Lucky for me as a wedding photographer in one of the most beautiful places on earth, I get to meet people and families from all over the world! Everyone is different and everyone has a unique story, and there’s nothing sweeter than translating those stories into beautiful photos.

When I’m not behind a camera, you may find me cheering on my favorite team in The Amazing Race, cooking with my wife and daughter, or helping my father with the family newspaper business.

But what I really love is what I’m blessed to do for a living... capturing weddings in beautiful Aruba, sharing in the very first moments of a couples new marriage—the beginning of a new life and a new family. Capturing those moments is a privilege and I still get goosebumps every time a bride and groom say their vows.

I would love nothing more than to capture those moments for you. Get in touch—I’d love to meet you!
