“If you have Hope, everything is possible.”

“If you have Hope, everything is possible.”

Hello, I’m Marianne Hope, owner of Picturelyspoken. I photograph moments, people, lifestyle, and destinations for a living.

Originally from Norway, I currently live in the “ ‘t Gooi” area in The Netherlands (close to Amsterdam, Utrecht, Hilversum, and Almere). I live an active, sometimes confusing, but never boring, multi-lingual life with my German king, two handsome pirates and a cute princess.

Through my lens I see love and connections, I see beautiful people and I see special moments that deserve to be captured, enjoyed and remembered. My goal is to capture YOUR unique story and create art that you will want to showcase and enjoy in your home every day – art that will make you smile and feel happy everytime you see it.

Through the years, I’ve had many opportunities to travel and I have developed a unique way of capturing the places I visit – especially with my mobile phone.

Based on my mobile-only travel experiences – shared to my Instagram @mariannehope – I founded the city marketing concept SeeMyCity. SeeMyCity utilizes the combination of smartphone photography and social media. We have already had successful initiatives in beautiful places like Doha/Qatar, Oslo/Norway and Leuven/Belgium.

For your commercial photography needs, my special interest in architecture, interior design as well as food and cooking is very useful. I love sharing pieces of my culinary adventures on @mariannelifestyle
