Meet your Switzerland Elopement Photographers
Hi, we are Victoria & Fabian!
We live in the Alps and cannot count how many sunsets we have watched from the summit of a mountain. We made most of our favorite memories while exploring, hiking, skiing, and having a great time outdoors. That’s why we created this Switzerland Elopement Package for you.
In the last years, we built a life that focuses on experiences in beautiful places. We love to go on road trips all over Europe and are always looking for the next adventure and new places to explore, always keeping an eye out for new elopement locations. We believe that our dreams are here to chase them and do everything to make them a reality.
Photography allows us to share our enthusiasm for nature and beautiful landscapes with you and to encourage more couples to ditch the traditions and create a wedding day they are really stoked about
We all have heard the sentence that your wedding day is the most beautiful day of your life. We always thought that this is just another quote that makes the expectations for weddings even more stressful and unreachable. But after we photographed our first adventure elopement, we think that your wedding day can really be one of the best days and an incredible experience to remember for the rest of your life. Our own elopement confirmed this belief. Creating a day that was all about our love for each other and the great outdoors was the best way to start this new chapter of our life. Ready to celebrate your Switzerland Elopement with us?
You will get more than stunning photos if you book us as your wedding or elopement photographers. We will do everything to help you create a meaningful experience and your personal dream wedding day.

Comment on weather
If you want to have a mountain elopement without snow and too much cold, we recommend not earlier than End of May, the beginning of June, as there is often snow on the mountaintops until then.
The end of October is one of our favorite times for an Elopement in Switzerland.
The trees, especially the larches, are usually in the most beautiful autumn colors.
It is also after the high-touristy season, which means you will have many places in the Alps all to yourself, perfect for an intimate and private elopement experience.
Although the weather can be anything at the end of autumn (there is even a possibility of snow), there are usually many days with beautiful warm weather and golden sunshine in that season.
The temperatures usually range between 5° & 15° Celsius. If the sun is out, this feels quite warm.
We recommend wearing a warm layer under the wedding outfit (for the dress, nude leggings are really great, you can’t see them, but they will keep you warm). We will also bring hand warmers and tea to warm up if she is freezing. We also recommend bringing a jacket, scarf, pullover, or blanket to wear together with the dress in case she feels cold so that she has the option to cover up if there is a cold wind.
