As a local Dolomites elopement photographer,
I help peppy anti-conformist people to create magical elopements in the Dolomites,
so they can be their unfiltered & silly selves,
without fear of being judged or pressured by social normativities.
No Regrets. No Compromises.

Here’s to the Reverse-thinkers who seek fun, freedom & connection.

You never fitted into a box,
you never wanted to do it like all the others,
and you basically never got what’s fun about big weddings.

“Spicy Cinnamon With Awesome Sauce”?

Why choosing a dramatic family over a dramatic scenary?
Get those:

🌟Just Awesome Vibes

Sabrina & Richie

Ellen is unapologetically herself, and that is what we most appreciated about her.
She makes everyone feel comfortable.
We appreciated how organised she was in advance of our special day, always available for calls to put our plan together

Maria & Ben

Ellen was the most incredible photographer that I am also proud and happy to call a friend. She made the day super stress free and everything went off seamlessly. She knows all the special locations that aren’t super touristy.

Eleonore & Tim

Ellen came to the slopes with us after the wedding and we took fantastic photos there, hats off to that because it’s not easy. Ellen definitely gets a clear recommendation from us for her humorous and professional manner.
