Slovenia Elopement Photographer
Sophie & Sam’s Elopement in the Slovenian Alps
We’ve seen our share of beautiful places all around the world, but in the recent years we grew very fond of the mountains and we feel very lucky to live so close to the Alps. We particularly love the Slovenian part, mostly because it’s not hard to find empty paths and breathtaking locations without the crowd taking the same insta-worthy photo.
So we were super excited when Sophie and Sam decided this is the place they want to declare their love for each other, out of all places in the world. We spent an amazing day hiking at not one, not two, but three different locations, all close by, but with very different landscapes. Scroll down to see the gallery and see how the cows almost ate Sophie’s bouquet (the florist must have put something delicious in there) , where they enjoyed a lovely picnic before reading their vows to each other, and the lovely shepherds village they explored just before the sunset.
From the couple:
“We can wholeheartedly say that if you are planning an elopement day, we would recommend Katja and Simon in a heartbeat.
From the initial discovery call, to the elopement day itself, we trusted their professional knowledge and passion for capturing special and once-in-a-lifetime moments.
Simon and Katja had superior knowledge of the area we had in mind for our wedding, and they were able to offer advice and local knowledge in order for us to achieve our dream day in the stunning location of Lake Bohinj and the surrounding mountains. They were also able to source stunning flowers, a hair stylist, as well as our beautiful wellness hotel.
On the day itself, having Simon there felt like being with an old friend. He immediately put us at easy be being calm and attentive (and terrific company!). He made the day special with his attention to detail and eye for a beautiful candid photography.
As for the end product, we are beyond thrilled with the photographs. Simon was able to capture so many special heartfelt moments throughout the day and make them all look so natural and elegant.
We would not hesitate to recommend Simon and Katja to anyone planning an elopement.
Thank you for creating and capturing our unforgettable dream day.”
An early morning start at the ski resort
We started super early in their hotel and rode up the ski lift to get some amazing views of the lake below and the mountains of course.
Cozy Picnic and Intimate vows overlooking the mountains
It was a long day, so a picnic brake was well deserved. They picked a spot with a beautiful view and enjoyed some local cheese, a glass of wine and just chilled before reading their vows and exchanging their rings. So easy-going and spontaneous. We love it!
Afternoon hike to see the stunning shepherds village
Sophie and Sam love to hike, so it was no surprise that they wanted to do another easy hike later in the afternoon, this time in casual clothes, just as they are used to. We then took the opportunity of the beautiful views over the shepherds village and captured some photos in their wedding outfits. Check below and see if it was worth it!
