FOCUS ON WHAT REALLY MATTERS
THE GOOD NEWS IS: YOU DON'T HAVE TO.
Imagine clearing your mind from everything you've ever been taught how a wedding day is supposed to look like and make your own rules. Imagine planning a day focused not only on your connection to each other, but also on experiences and places you love. Imagine saying your vows in a place you have chosen to celebrate your relationship.

DANI VALLANT //
ELOPEMENT & WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
AUSTRIA & ITALY & EUROPE
Hey, I’m Dani!
I'm based in Austria and the Dolomites documenting fun, real and crazy love stories.
Guess what? I never thought I’d be photographing elopements someday.
That was before I discovered you don’t have to have a big wedding event to “make it count”, you can ditch traditions that don’t make you happy and plan your wedding in a contemporary, personal and meaningful way to YOU.
I specialize in elopements, destination wedding adventures with couples and small, love-soaked micro weddings where every guest is an important part of my couples lives.
I live for couples who break the rules to make their own, and who celebrate their wedding day exactly the way it feels right to THEM.
You are my heros - cheers to you!
My approach is documenting the day as it unfolds FOCUSING ON REAL MOMENTS - yet artistic with a love for beautiful light AND A STORYTELLING NARRATIVE.
Every wedding photographer loves epic portraits in stunning landscapes. But a wedding day is so much more than just that. It's full of connection and fleeting moments that you'd miss or never remember they happened if we didn't catch 'em for you. Your day wedding doesn't start at the altar or ends with family portraits. It's a story with a beginning and an ending. Just like a movie that doesn't start in the middle, it's important to capture the full story and the in between moments.
I won’t make you do staged poses all day long - all you have to do is genuinely enjoy your day. But hey, if you feel lost: I’ve got you covered!
Take the stress out of planning a big event for everyone but you
Let's talk about your dreams and visions for your wedding day - as vague as they may be. I want you to realize that nothing is too out of reach or out of the box and every elopement I photograph is tailored to my couple's personalities. My epic elopement planning guide has got every angle of eloping covered and is a super valuable planning resource.
If you haven’t already set your eyes on a specific place to elope, I’ll help you with recommendations and location suggestions. I’ll help you craft a timeline for a fun yet photo friendly version of your wedding day without having it feel like a “photoshoot”. Also, I’m happy to connect you with vendors (florists, elopement planners, etc.) that will help to make your day special and stress free.
On your wedding day I capture authentic moments as they happen in documentary style and give direction anytime that I think it helps the story. Your wedding or elopement should never feel like a constant photoshoot - we’ll take breaks if we need them, we’ll take our time to explore, relax, have fun and I’m always around to capture the story so you can share them with all your loved ones at home.
SO YOU DON'T WANT TO DO TRADITIONAL - I'VE GOT YOU COVERED!
