Lis & Mauricio’s Elopement in the Alps

Lis & Mauricio contacted us early in November when we thought our wedding season 2017 was soon to be over. And looking back now, it was one of the biggest adventures of the year and the best end of an incredible year, better than anything we could have wished for.

When they started to explain to us what they were looking for, it felt like they were speaking right from our hearts. Not because they wanted to elope; but because they wanted to celebrate their marriage in the most meaningful and authentic way that they felt represented them as a couple.

So we started planning out the whole day, via e-mail and skype, all the while Lis & Mauricio were in their home country, Brazil.

This one is not about fancy dresses, expensive venues or a huge cake. It’s the story of two lovers that followed their heart and tied the knot in nature, where they feel most at home and where they draw their everyday inspiration.


We are so thankful that we had such a wonderful team to help make Lis & Mauricio’s dreamy elopement in the winter wonderland of the Bavarian Alps come true.

Venue: Hotel am Badersee  Bridal Styling: Laura Stadler  Florals: Blue + Ivory




“In the past few weeks, I heard you saying “Oh my God, I can’t believe we are really doing this!” so many times! And every time I felt calm and happy, probably because we would be living another adventure together, an experience that really represents us, that connects us to nature, where the magic lies in the simplicity of the moment, in just being truly together.

And now I think: why haven’t we done this before?”
– Mauricio in his vows –





Do you know that feeling when you’re nervous and excited at the same time? That feeling where your emotions seem to have no real control & everything at that moment just feels…right? From the gentle shaky hands to the deep look in their eyes – Lis & Mauricio were experiencing this. They knew the time was now, and everything felt right. Everything made sense. Mauricio sat upstairs in the two story hotel room while Lis had her make up just below. They were so close, yet, couldn’t see each other. It was a moment that, us as photographers, got to experience with them & we could feel that these two absolutely belong together. Without fail. That love. That undying passion & calling for each other.




Only the gentle whisper of the wind brushing over the tree tops & the little ripples of Badersee orchestrated the area as Mauricio stood alone; waiting. Waiting for the moment he’s been so excited for. That moment he gets to turn around and see his Lis, his soul-partner of 13 years, greet him in her wedding dress, ready to say yes! I do! I will forever! The gentle rhythmic cracking of ice as she stepped closer and closer gave way to a gentle, yet sincere smile. This moment, their moment, was but a few steps away.





After the vows were said, and the emotions overflowed – Lis & Mauricio took the adventure to go up to the Alps and show the world their love for each other. They had no fear, no quarrels; just each other. Just each other to love, and to hold and to celebrate. Out in nature where they feel the most connected, they found their place. They closed their eyes to take in the sounds; they opened them – to take in each other. Keeping warm under a thick blanket in ice cold temperatures coupled with their warm, loving embrace meant that they were right where they were meant to be. With each other. Forever unified as a married couple.





As the sun set, revealing the true beauty of the Alpine colors, Lis & Mauricio descended and headed back to the hotel. A candle was lit. Music was chosen. It was their moment once more; just the two of them. As Mauricio held Lis by her waist, Lis brought her hands up and held him close. They swayed to the music seemingly lost in each others universe. We were forgotten. At that moment, we didn’t exist. And thats how it should be. They danced, and our eyes were far from dry. Nothing but the music & the soft candle light to set the scene. It was one of the most profound first dances we’ve had the pleasure of capturing. Ending it off – Lis opens her bag to bring out all the love-letters from their family and friends, wishing them well and a life full of happiness and love. As they cuddled on the sofa reading their letters, the snow fell – and our story of their wedding came to an end.



“Thank you so much for everything, I am sure that if it wasn’t for you and all the help from day 1 we wouldn’t have had this amazing adventure! You’ll be forever in our hearts!”
– Lis & Mauricio

Intimate Mountain Wedding in the Alps

Anastasia & David

Anastasia & David celebrated an intimate Mountain Wedding with forty five of their favourite people. They picked a venue in the middle of nowhere. A historic hunting cottage called Villa Maund in the Austrian woods with a stunning all inclusive view over mountain tops and waterfalls.

When these two contacted us last year, we quickly knew they are our kind of people. Not only because they are both working in a creative industry as designers, they also own a little design agency together as a couple. As a result, when we met over Skype for the first time, we found common ground on more than one end.
But what really got us hooked about Ana & David’s small and rustic wedding was not some fancy venue or big brands being involved. The way these two envisioned their wedding day was about more than that, they wanted it to be authentic and representing who they are. Relatively small and intimate, with a lot of thought into what it should feel. And lastly the complete trust in us and our photography and videography.
Ana & David made lots of time for us to capture their Getting Ready followed by the sweetest First Look moments before walking into their Free Ceremony that was held by one of their best friends. Due to the cold weather, everything had to be moved indoors which in fact turned out to be super cosy and intimate. They wrote their own vows and David played his wife a song on his ukulele. It was the very song he once sang when he was on his way home on the night of their first date. They ventured out into the mountains with us at freezing temperatures to create these incredible moments together with this dream like mountain backdrop that they specifically chose for their big day.
With live music and surrounded by all their loved ones, they opened their party cuddled into each other without any fancy dancing steps, because this is who they really are.
Ana & David’s intimate mountain wedding was perfect and we loved every bit of their day full of authentic and emotional moments.
