CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING BADASS!

Helicopter Elopement

You've decided to elope - hell yes!!!

Eloping means you are in complete control over your wedding adventure and I love that you have chosen to be bold and make this day about you two - whether you plan to include a handful of the most important people of your life or not.

An elopement is so much more than running away together and exchanging your vows. I'm not only here to document your elopement, but also to encourage you to create a day around your favorite things to do or things you have always wanted to do.

I'm on team bride AND groom - and I can't wait to get to know you and dig into your elopement plans!

HEY, I'M DANI!

WEDDING & ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

BASED IN EUROPE

Guess what? I never thought I’d be photographing elopements someday.

But 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.

Despite what society and the culture we grew up in taught us how about how a wedding day is supposed to look like, there is no rulebook for getting married. There is no right or wrong way - only your way.

Was it scary to give up photographing big, traditional weddings? Heck yeah! But I discovered something amazing: a lot of couples don't want big and traditional, but to elope instead and celebrate their relationship in a unique way that is right for them.

I have found my sweet spot in the wonderful world of outdoor elopements, destination 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 dare to break the rules to make their own, to celebrate their wedding day exactly the way it feels right to THEM - and to soak in every minute of it.

Cheers to you!

PLANNING RESSOURCES: HOW DO YOU ELOPE?

ELOPEMENT PDF GUIDE

I've packed years of wedding photography and travel experience into a 70+ page PDF guide chock full with inspiration, checklists and creative guidance on how to personalize your elopement. It covers every aspect of planning an elopement day - from customizing your ceremony to including loved ones who aren't present.

LOCATION SUGGESTIONS

Most couples may have a general idea of what their day could look like, but they have absolutely no clue where they are going to say their vows or which places to avoid because they are too crowded at certain times of the year/day. This is where my expertise and experience as a local photographer comes in: you'll receive a tailored list of 3-4 prime location suggestions that I think would fit your vision best.

I help couples craft a fully custom timeline of their elopement- whether your day starts with soaking in a geothermal hot spring and ends with a sunset picnic - we'll make sure we'll make it as stress free and fun as possible and craft a day that's truly yours.

EVERYTHING COMES TOGETHER

Where the magic happens

POST PRODUCTION

post production before-2 image editing before after

This is where I spent the most time on your photos: in post! No wedding/couple session is the same: Light, season, time of the day and location change the quality of light - for a consistent look throughout my work I create a custom color palette that I tweak to every wedding & elopement gallery and every single image you receive that reflect the conditions of the wedding day. While professional gear helps photographers to capture high quality footage and master tricky lighting situations, it can't live up to the dynamic range that human eyes are able to see. It's the editing part where we develop and recreate the light we felt and saw on location.

How do we book you?

I require a non-refundable retainer (1500 Euro) and a signed booking contract by both of you to secure your date and block the time off in my calender.  For every elopement date I block off a mininum of 4 full days in my calendar where I can't serve / have to turn down other clients.  
 
50% of the balance is due 8 weeks prior to your date, the other 50% is due 2 weeks prior to your date..
 

What if we have to cancel our booking?

My dates are a limited resource, therefore the retainer is non-refundable in case of cancellation.
 
If I can reschedule your new date within 12 months of the original date, the retainer can be transferred to the new date. 

Do we have to go hiking if we want to elope?

Short answer: Absolutely not!  Long answer: The biggest myth of eloping is that you have to go hiking to call it an “adventure elopement”. You don't have to be drenched in sweat or be into hiking to be able to enjoy beautiful scenery and wanting to include it into your elopement day. Scenic views are for everyone! There are beautiful, easy access locations with minimal effort for chill elopements and epic views out there.
 
Most couples who do want to add a hike opt for something short/easy anywhere between 30min - 45 min each way. 

What's your turnaround time and do you edit our photos?

My turnaround time is 8 weeks or less. 
Depending on my travel schedule and the season you elope (winter and spring), your gallery may be ready earlier.
 
My editing will always reflect the conditions of your wedding day, the light/time of the day, the weather and colors of the season you elope. I like to keep it natural and slighly warm.

What happens if it rains?

The weather for outdoor elopements is always unpredictable, can change multiple times throughout the day and is part of your adventure!  Some of my favorite weddings were shot in non ideal, moody weather as it can create dramatic skies, beautiful even light and atmosphere. Monitoring weather forecasts for safety is important though and we'll adjust the timeline for the best conditions. It also helps to book an airbnb/hotel that can serve as a great indoor photo option until the weather gets better. If conditions are really miserable all day long or unsafe (heavy rain all day long), rescheduling to the next day can be an option.

Can we schedule a phone/video call before we book you?

Absolutely! Please schedule a time and date via my virtual calender (scroll down to find the link). I'd love to connect with you! Whether it's a video chat or a phone call  -  I highly believe that it matters who you choose to come along with on such an important and intimate day of your life, and that great company and chemistry makes being photographed a whole lot more easier and comfortable.
 
For all the introverts - I feel you! I promise this won't be torture ;-)

Are you a wedding/elopement planner?

No, I'm not a wedding planner and I don't book or coordinate any vendors for you.  I help couples with location & vendor suggestions and will send an amazing 70+ page elopement PDF guide your way with check lists, elopement & planning tipps that will help you plan your dream elopement. I also help craft a custom timeline for your elopement day that focuses on the best light outdoors to make sure everything goes smoothly.

How many photos do you deliver?

Every elopement and every couple is different! I usually deliver a minumum of 50 images per hour of active shooting time for elopements with less than 10 guests (unless we spent that hour driving in a car to change location, etc.) and about 50-60 images per hour for weddings, but will never withhold any images that are worth remembering. You'll get all memories worth keeping!

How do we get our images?

You will receive your images via an online gallery link as high resolution files (perfect for print) and web resolution files (perfect for smart phones) in JPG format. Your gallery will remain online as a safe storage for 1 year. During that time you get unlimited downloads.
