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.

    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!

    Amazing experience

    Rogier was very professional and adaptable photographer. He knew his equipment very well that captured our amazing photographs in Acadia National Park.

    Rogier is absolutely amazing. We were a bit unique and had him take photos for our engagement in Acadia National Park. Not only did he capture the moment, we did an engagement photo shoot afterwards for an additional hour. He kept us in touch the entire process, even drove out the day before to the spot to make sure he wouldnt miss sunrise at the park. A true professional who's talents radiated from the shoot. He even went over almost an hour to make sure we got all the best parts of the park at sunrise. The quality of the images were absolutely stunning; I am a photographer myself and the work he did with the lighting that we had, was unbelievable. I still do not know how he did what he did with that camera. Finally, we were fortunate that he took time out of his morning and edited the photos that day. We can't say enough about Rogier and his work and would highly recommend Eager Eye photography; they are well worth the cost!
