Dolomites Elopement Witch, Cat Mom & Total Theme Parks Nerd

I’m Ellen and I’m a photographer, born, raised and still living in the beautiful Dolomites (what a blessing, I know ;P). I studied languages at the local high school and have always being flashed by crazy, creative stuff in life.
Most of the time (unless we talked about fascinating topics like gothic novels *looooove* ❤) instead of paying attention at school, I dreamed about the next bizarre photographs I would take in our beautiful nature.

I’ve been craving spontaneous explorations, exciting activities and of course dramatic & theatrical things since ever!
I’d describe photography as a way to passionately communicate, express and LIVE feelings. Couples in love and Elopements are a form of my wildest photographic dreams, each one inspires me with their very own way of being.
This way I can give each couple that inspiration back in the form of awesome photographs, good energy and care!

My family sees me as a bit of a guerilla instead – full of willpower and probably always opposite to “normal” people. I don’t care about “have-tos” nor random opinions. I know what I want, and I actually see myself as a black sheep too.
Not trying to fit in simply gives me so much more freedom.

And if you see yourselves as rebels as well, because you don’t believe in doing the same as everyone else, that’s why I’m the perfect person to help you. Us rebels should stick together!

Ellen Alfreider | Wedding Photographer Dolomites

I’ve been born and raised in the Heart of the Dolomites: In a small town named Colfosco. And I think I’m never going to move away from my hometown ever again. Unless I find another place on earth to live a life beyond my wildest dreams, just like Snow White: In a cabin in the middle of the forest, surrounded by a lot of animals and 7 men.

I’m a nerd, a witch and full-time reverse thinker. I basically love to sprinkle some magic around, and give people new points of view and unique solutions to problems they might face when planning a wedding or a secret proposal.
Old-fashioned and cringy have-tos aren’t for me. Instead, I stand for everything that isn’t regular and people who want to beat to their own drum.

After my first ski elopement wedding, I knew my calling was to support alternative couples who don’t see themselves having a traditional kind of wedding day.

“Elopements give me goosebumps and
the urge to twerk upside down!” (Yes, I know how to twerk, if that helps.)


Breaks wedding rules that don’t serve you, and gives you tailored new ideas instead!

Makes sure you avoid typical tourists mistakes that end up with huge disappointments!

Keeps you warm, safe and in a good mood – for your day to be as amazeballs as possible!


I photographed my first wedding at age 19 and some more classical weddings afterwards.
After having photographed the craziest elopement wedding, which was an elopement on skis, I knew my deepest calling was to support couples who don’t see themselves having a traditional kind of wedding day!

I love people who don’t give a blep about fitting into boxes and want to get married in a way that truly represents them. Not making any compromises. HEEEEEEEEEEELL YEESSSS!!! *spreads glitters everywhere*

I would describe myself like this: Energetic, Outgoing and Enthusiastic

In my spare time, I cuddle with my cattos, talk nonsense and send silly photos / memes to my friends. But I also love to take some time off and have 2 days in a beautiful wellness hotel. Or go to a theme park! (adrenaline’s my fuel!)

In short, I love the mountains and roller coasters.
Ah… And for those who haven’t understood it yet,
I love puns and iron-knees!
