About Eager Eye Photography

?Eager Eye Photography of Maine specializes in out-of-the-ordinary wedding photography, serving non-traditional, non-stuffy clients in the United States and abroad. Founder and owner Rogier van Bakel, a former writer and editor for national U.S. magazines and newspapers, has a journalism degree from Europe — an indication of his lifelong commitment to telling stories. First and foremost, Eager Eye Photography provides top-notch wedding photojournalism (candid photography), while also excelling in coached bride-and-groom portraiture and group portraits (a.k.a. "formals").

The 10-year-old company is based in Bar Harbor, Maine ( Mount Desert Island), but also serves Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor, all of Acadia National Park, Tremont, Ellsworth, Dedham, Bangor, Blue Hill, Penobscot, Lincolnville, Camden, Rockland, Rockport, Waterville, Augusta, Cape Elizabeth, Hancock, Orono, Bucksport, Belfast, Lamoine, Castine, Damariscotta, Owls Head, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor, Freeport, Portland, South Portland, Wiscasset, Topsham, Brunswick, Newport, Old Orchard Beach, Saco, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Biddeford, Falmouth, Gorham, Sunday River, Presque Isle, Phippsburg, Waldoboro, Thomaston, Searsport, Monroe, Orland, Orrington, Hampden, Veazie, Old Town, Machias, Machiasport, Eastport, Gouldsboro, Jonesport, Milbridge, Steuben, Sorrento, Surry, Brooklin, and other Maine and New England locations.


Eager Eye Photography's mission is as follows:

  • To make clients moist-eyed and weak-kneed when viewing their wedding photos now and fifty years from now;
  • To help the much-maligned genre of wedding photography shed its cheesy, mortally uncool image;
  • To deliver photojournalistic excellence in story-telling;
  • To push the creative envelope;
  • and to have and share a boatload of fun in the process.

Eager Eye's wedding clients often leave spontaneous reviews detailing their experiences with Rogier; click on the star rating at the top of this page to read them.

Five out of the past six years, Eager Eye Photography has received the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award (formerly Brides' Choice Awards), an accolade given only to the top five percent of wedding professionals nationwide who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and overall professionalism.

Please call 207.613.7600 for availability or a free consultation.

    Wonderful surprise

    Rogier is wonderful to work with! He worked with my boyfriend to plan a surprise proposal and offered ideas where to capture the moment. He was so quick to edit the photos because he knew we would want to announce the big news. The photos turned out so well!

    Cadillac Mountain Engagement

    Choosing Eager Eye Photography was the best decision I could have made for our engagement! My (now) fiancé and I were traveling to Acadia National Park for the first time and Rogier was able to tell me about great locations in the park, offer recommendations, and even remain flexible with scheduling around weather changes. Most importantly though, the photographs he produced were wonderful and I can't recommend his work enough!

    Rogier was amazing! We were in from out of town and he gave us some great ideas on where to go. He was able to send us our engagement photos the same day we took them! Great attitude and a very fun person. We definitely recommend him!
