Dolomites Elopement Photography

I’m so excited to share this styled shoot in the Italian Dolomites with you. It was such an EPIC trip and felt so wholesome and creative to plan, organise and execute. I worked with a great friend- Nicola Drummond Photography on this which was so much fun and we collaborated to bring our Italian Dolomites elopement photography vision to life.


The first port of call was to select which locations to photograph at in the Italian Dolomites. With so many incredible shoot locations to choose from we were spoilt for choice and slightly overwhelmed with where to start! After lots of research and Pinterest planning, we settled on Lago Di Braies, Tre Cime Di Lavaredo and Seceda for the Dolomites elopement photography shoot.


The mood board was all about creating a whimsical and elegant mountain elopement in a spectacular landscape. And the Dolomites did not disappoint. The locations were truly incredible and we were blessed with gorgeous light which made it even more magical to experience.


Lago Di Braies Elopement Photography

Lago Di Braies is one of the most magical places I have ever witnessed. It’s like being in a painting. Lago Di Braies, also known as Lake Braies is a crystal blue lake located beneath an amphitheatre of rock. A breath-taking location that is simply unforgettable. It lies within the boundaries of the Fannes-Senes-Braies Nature Park and is located near the Val Pusteria region (Puster Valley) in the Northern part of the Italian Dolomites

We got up at the crack of dawn to start the elopement shoot at the lake for sunrise and it was so worth it. On a crisp October morning, it was chilly but stunning. As the sun came up it became more and more surreal to look at.


Here are a few images from the Lago Di Braies elopement photography shoot:

Tre Cime Di Lavaredo Elopement Photography

Later that day we had planned the sunset shoot at Tre Cime with stunning views of jagged limestone peaks. In terms of iconic Dolomites scenery, Tre Cime di Lavaredo is up there. The Tre Cime di Lavaredo hike is a trail in the Italian Dolomites that circles three iconic peaks, collectively known as Tre Cime di Lavaredo or Three Peaks of Lavaredo. Shooting the elopement photography here meant an hours’ hike up to the three peaks location.


We set off carrying all our supplies with our amazing model couple Shirin and Angelo. We started shooting as the sun set right at the top and it was the most magical scenery and light we could have hoped for. As we hiked back down during golden hour, we stopped along the way to photograph the elopement couple. I’ve never seen such incredible light at dusk and in such an epic landscape it was honestly breath-taking.

Seceda Elopement Photography

We did a lifestyle shoot with our wonderful couple at Seceda in the Dolomites. Seceda, or Alpe di Seceda, is a mountain that is located in the Puez Odle Nature Park in Val Gardena. It is part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a great location to photograph at because unlike some places in the Dolomites, it’s quite easily accessible without too much hiking. You can jump on the cable way from Ortisei to the mountain summit. Then it’s a short hike to the epic views. Here are a few photographs from the lifestyle photography shoot at Seceda.
