Are you one of those couples tired of the pressure around the traditional expectations around your special wedding day?

Are you rather seeking a uniquely adventurous way with a just us experience (or with the nearest family and/or friends?) to initiate the first page of your love story? Do you love adventure and would rather escape on a camping trip on the mountain, a sailing trip on the sea, taking the helicopter to an unreachable place….instead of planning a huge party.

LET'S REINVENT THE FIRST DAY

WHAT IF...

I FEEL YOU...

It’s the night before your wedding, the last drop of anxiety  is taking over, the obligations that come with all the preparations,  on top of that you’re not sure if your whole family there will cause too much drama,  distracted with these insignificant burdens. Stressed last minute about who to invite or not, just for the sake of not disappointing others, was it a good idea to invite my X ? Should I have invited my boss?  

As if this wasn’t enough all the investment that has gone into the wedding, leaves you with the pressure of everything having to look perfect, not to forget the post-wedding financial blues. The wedding day comes and everything is planned out by second, leaving no space to truly enjoy each moment.  You start by taking the photos in a superficial setting with bright lights shining directly at you, being forced to smile, turn right and left, whilst feeling awkward and uncomfortable. 

The party starts and you find yourself simply worrying about entertaining your guests. Feeling guilty realizing you haven’t managed to spend any intentional moment with the one person who matters in all of this. The moment comes to say your vows and you’re so overwhelmed that you don’t even remember. All of this leaving you longing for the honeymoon to have the true love experience…

And the worst part is when your kids will ask you few years later about your wedding day you won’t be able to recall much of it….

Then it hits you, you realize none of these wedding traditions are truly yours. They have been strategically formulated by the wedding industry to convince you that you need to spend to be happy, but let me tell you, true happiness is free from all the bells and whistles and A LOT  simpler than this.

The sad truth is many people feel relieved once all of this is over. Which doesn’t surprise me; I went through a biggish wedding myself, and although my day was awesome in many ways, I would have done several things differently. 

You have the permission to be selfish on your wedding day… let me introduce you to another type of wedding which is simply about you as a couple. Nobody else, nothing else. No random work colleagues, No controlling mothers. No cheesy table decorations. Just about you.

CAPTURING
WHAT IS
IMPORTANT


Elopement Wedding Photographer & guide

Forget posing and the stress of “looking good on the pictures”.  

My goal ist to capturing genuine emotions from the adventure that you create together.

A memory for a lifetime.

IMAGINE YOU DID THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY……

Let’s rewind to the night before your wedding, You feel relaxed and excited to spend the first day of the rest of your life together with no distractions, simply each other. You haven’t wasted anytime planning unnecessary things, instead staying true to the simplicity of being together.    

You choose a special place surrounded by nature, waking up cuddling in front of a campfire, savouring a delicious homemade breakfast with the scent of baked bread, fruity jams blended with wild grass and pine trees. You are in control of how YOU are spending your day with an activity you both love in an unforgettable landscape. Hiking with your dog and swimming in a wild waterfall, hearing the sound of the birds singing, celebrating your love, and the water from the rivers flowing endlessly as a symbol of you’re the life that is to come. Being truly present in every moment, finding the magic in the simplicity of nature accompanying you on this adventure of love.

Then its time for the pictures and you hardly don’t even notice the photographer, it’s simply you enjoying and being you whilst all of this is being documented in the most subtle natural manner, true to your memories. The moment comes to say your vows and you are able to stop, look each-other deeply in the eyes and be grateful, with a true moment of silence to honour your love, as a precious kept secret to each other, free from external validation. Feeling the wind gracefully caressing your faces, as a sign that you can now savor the enchantment of the first kiss as husband and wife.

Looking back, your children will brag to their friends about how cool their parents were to have gotten married in an unexpected location, prioritising their love above all, no matter what was expected of them.

PARAGLIDING ELOPEMENT

ADVENTURE INSTEAD? Are you an adventurer? Then perhaps a princess wedding is not for you? Perhaps you want to spend your money on an adventure instead? Paragliding can be done separately, but it can also be the way you come down a mountain after a mountain top ceremony! 

I am based in Switzerland and Sweden and I am specialised in Swiss and Swedish Elopement and adventure weddings. But if you think I am the right person for your special day, I will go anywhere on the planet that you wish for. To Arktis if you prefer.

OR A DREAMY MOUNTAIN WINTER WEDDING?

Is your common passion snowboarding or skiing? Then perhaps use your common passion and create the dream wedding out of that and adventure instead.

BOAT ELOPEMENT

Sharing your most intimate thoughts to each other doesn’t get more intimate than on a boat. For sure far away from anyone else! 

CITY ELOPEMENT

You enjoy a calm ceremony in the Town hall, then you stroll down the cobblestone streets together… Perhaps you feed the birds, perhaps you take a bout tour and a stroll along the lake with a picnic. Or perhaps you have dinner in the palace? Or simply a picnic tète-a-tète up the hill in the forrest or in your own garden? Only imagination sets the limits to a calmer elopement day. 

THIS IS THE KIND OF WEDDING I WILL MAKE SURE HAPPENS FOR YOU...

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:

WHY ME?

The best third wheel you could possibly dream of……

I will get up at 3 just to capture your moments at sunrise, climb a mountain, sail an ocean, ski down just about any slope. Just to make sure that you spend the day just as YOU are dreaming about!

As a true lover of the outdoors, I can hike any mountain, climb, ski, go on a boat, sleep in a tent and will do it all for you, get up at three in the morning for an amazing sunrise, all to assure your vision comes to life. I seek to inspire and encourage the adventurous spirit within each couple by guiding you along this elopement journey assuring this alternative way of getting married, relaxed and intimate, can indeed by a reality, helping craft YOUR dream wedding day.

 I aim to make your experience as personalized as possible, providing custom guidance, documenting your invaluable memories to be truly spontaneous, by creating a unique story through images capturing your emotions in their purest form. My duty is to assure you that a few years later when you are flickering through the pages of your wedding album with your future children the photographs captured, will embed the magic to instantly transport you back to that day where it all began.

ARE YOU READY TO ELOPE?

Plan your dream wedding day?

BUT WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT?

bröllopsfotograf-ishotellet-winterwedding-location-idea

An elopement is simply a small, intimate wedding that is truly about the couple, free from any traditional expectation of a classic wedding. It can be only the couple or just the nearest family or friends. 

The location can be just anywhere, perhaps a place that means a lot go you, where you walk your dog every day, in a dream destination, in your backyard, on a roof top, on a beach, on a boat, on a mountain, in a forrest, in a hot air ballon…
Simply where you want it to be. 

The wedding can be adventurous and/or very special but it can also be super simple. What really means something is that you do it JUST FOR YOU and that you truly enjoy every single second of the day. 

HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD WE PLAN?

Some people think that people who elope don’t think that the wedding is important and that they just want to do the civil wedding and a couple of of portrait photos.  But I don’t think so! Your day is JUST AS IMPORTANT! Just ask yourself the question: 

– How do I want to remember my wedding day in 20 years?

WHAT WILL YOU GET?
  • Lifetime memories to share  with family, friends and perhaps future children and grandchildren.
  • A relaxed and stress free day, unique and just as adventurous as you wish it to be. 
  • A comfortable, photographing experience in a natural atmosphere that you enjoy at your own pace
  • An authentic and true to you wedding day experience
  • High quality images to share with friends, family and social media
  • Intimate and meaning full and a true to your vision experience
  • Location scouting and planning support throughout

ELOPEMENT PRICING GUIDE

mountain-elopement-wedding-photographer-Switzerland

IT'S NOT A FULL DAY PHOTOSHOOT

Elopements is not a quick fix with a photoshoot to get some nice photos, an elopement is as important as a big wedding. The whole story of your day deserves  to be told! An elopement is still a wedding, not a photoshoot to get instagram photos.

Just because your wedding day has less guests, it shouldn’t be less photo coverage. Your wedding day should not be LESS! Simply just different – just exactly how you wish it to be. Not what your aunt wants it to be and not what your mother in law wants. It’s about YOU

MORE THAN "JUST" A PHOTOGRAPHER

If you hire me for your elopement wedding I provide much more than just photos. You get so much more than just a wedding photographer. I will also support you with the following: 

  • Finding the best location for the ceremony and photos – and guide you to them
  • Planning tips and guide and checklists of how to prepare for your adventurous wedding
  • Creating a realistic and flexible timeline 
  • Your adventure buddy and best friend of the day, I’ll help you carry, fixing your bouquet to the backpack, I’ll have extra snacks when energy is dropping, fix your hair, button up your dress and so much more.
  •  I don’t photograph the same elopement twice. Every couple is different and there is no one-size fits all formula for an elopement wedding as the sky is the limit when it comes to elopements. The process and the experience will be personalised to fit YOU, your wishes and your dreams weather if it’s just the two of you or some guests. Whether it’s on the top of a mountain in Patagonia or a calm lakeside location. I’ll help you to customise your experience so that it fits YOU.
