About the Hosts of your Mountain Elopement in Germany
We’re Max and Zoe 🙂 We’re a couple based in South Germany who love the mountains and try to spend almost every weekend exploring the Bavarian Alps and the Allgäu-Region of Germany.
Apart from that, photography is our common passion, and we chose wedding and elopement photography because we enjoy seeing people experience meaningful days in and with nature 🙂 That’s why we created this Mountain Elopement Package for you.
When we’re not travelling or taking photos, we enjoy writing stories, cooking and dreaming about our future dog 🙂
Come and say hi ! We can’t wait to meet you! 😀
