“I’m helping offbeat couples to make their intimate wedding come true – in the most beautiful landscapes of the Dolomites and South Tyrol.”

First Rule of the fight club:
To hell WITH 
THE RULES.

Planning A Big Wedding DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE HYPE YOU EXPECTED.

Spending hours and hours in front of the PC and killing your last brain cell, in the hope of organizing the big wedding, stresses you more than it makes you happy.

And you also realize that deep inside, you don’t even want all those typical wedding things

 

 

 

YOU WANT A WEDDING THAT IS 100% YOU!

A big or traditional wedding is not what you are looking for – because you “are not like that“.

You want to feel free and shiny because you’re a spirited couple looking for an exciting outdoor wedding experience.

As a Dolomites wedding and elopement photographer, this is what I can give you!

DO YOU KNOW THAT MOMENT WHEN YOu…

IDEAS TO GET MARRIED IN THE MOUNTAINS

 

Intimate AND SIMPLE Wedding in the Dolomites

 

Do you feel that nature is a place that connects and brings you back to peace but at the same time excites you?

That’s why an Dolomites elopement could be the right experience for you!

The Dolomites are full of wonderful places to celebrate a wedding in nature – free from any cliché.

A MODERN Elopement IN THE MOUNTAINS

The mountains are an idyllic place!

I believe that few places in the world give a feeling of freedom like them.

Why not also feel free on the wedding day, leaving all expectations behind?

A modern elopement consists of spending a day, or even more – in the name of love and the values ​​of alternative couples.

You are not forced to have the same wedding as your parents.

 

Feel free to go
where your heart takes you!

SKI OR HIKE ON Your WEDDING DAY!

Getting married in winter is perhaps one of the most rebellious things!

Hardly anyone gets married during the winter months, yet I believe there is nothing more romantic than a fireplace after a good ski-day in the Dolomites.

Are you a couple who loves walking or hiking in the mountains?
Well – so why not do it during your Dolomites elopement too?

For the reportage of our wedding, we essentially wanted photos capable of capturing – without clichés or staged photographs – the flow of unique emotions that would have generated that day.

Ellen, moving between us and our guests like a guardian angel, invisible to the eye but always present, has perfectly managed to capture the spontaneity of the gestures, the looks, the various moments of celebration, stopping them in images that we never tire of looking at, even weeks after that beautiful date.

Our wedding album is the result of a job done with great seriousness, passion and professionalism, in which we never felt treated by mere
buyers of a service, but as protagonists to be accompanied with discretion in their fairytale, trying to understand and best interpret their feelings.

Thank you!

Who doesn’t want that on their wedding day: a photographer who knows what you want and who also implements the wishes.

A photographer who calms the wedding couple and brings them across in the photos as they are. The moments captured in photos that are most important and at the same time beautifully reproduce spontaneous situations.

We had it all with Ellen. Our wedding day was just fantastic and her photos made it PERFECT. Even when the weather turned and got worse, she had everything in hand. She encouraged us and so the photos were a great success in the rainy hours. A huge thank you!

We can only recommend Ellen to everyone.

Ellen was fantastic in helping us realize our romantic dream:
she took us to this wonderful place in the Dolomites and she followed us every step of the way, always taking care that we were comfortable and having fun.

We could never have lived such an experience without her help.

This photographer is for anyone who wants to organize an alternative and adventurous wedding, as well as super super romantic and fun!
