About Your Alps Elopement Photographer and Videographer

Hey, we’re Christine and Scott, your Alps Elopement Photography and Videography team

As Americans based in the German Alps, we jumped into the elopement space not long after planning our own wedding a few years back. When we got married, we took the traditional route because no one gave us another alternative. We didn’t know outdoorsy introverts like us could have the day of our dreams. We didn’t know we could ditch the crowds and spend a day connecting with the things we love most: each other and the mountains. As our adventures have taken us from the Arctic to the Alps, we’ve found more and more couples like ourselves. Couples who wanted an ‘’off the beaten path’’ wedding in the outdoors that would leave them feeling fulfilled and empowered. Now, we help couples create and capture those inspiring experiences in our backyard and beyond.

Photographer + owner


Growing up, I had never dreamed of climbing mountains. To the contrary, I actually lived in one of America’s flattest states, Indiana. When I was 15 though, I came across a photo of Grindelwald, Switzerland and something in that moment clicked. I needed places like that in my life. I began to pursue jobs all over, from working on trail construction in Glacier National Park, Montana, and throughout Northwest Colorado to Alaska and Germany. Over the years, my passion for the outdoors has continued to grow. Sharing that with others through hiking + photography has brought me so much fulfillment!



My first experience with the mountains was while living and working in southeast Alaska. I was fascinated by the remoteness of the jagged peaks and bright blue glaciers (especially the glaciers). I also realized that I loved hiking up steep trails where my legs and lungs were trying to do everything to get me to take a breather. Being able to push through and reach some amazing viewpoints made it all worth the effort. I enjoy getting to know an area well and finding the hidden sweet spots that only those that really look for them can find. I also get a big kick out of showing people the obvious and not so obvious beauty of the areas in which we work.

What our couples have said about us….

“My wife Whitney and I were lucky enough to spend an entire day with Christine and Scott, and could not have had a better experience. From the beginning, they helped us with every aspect of planning our perfect elopement, and made sure every single one of our hopes would be possible for the day. Christine mapped out amazing timeline possibilities, and we had the luxury of weighing the pros and cons of several different wedding locations.

First and foremost, Christine and Scott were an absolute pleasure to spend our day with. We had so much fun with our shoot, and they really made the day so special. From planning several different locations based on lighting and other factors, our pictures came out perfectly in every way. We’re so so happy we chose to work with them, and would recommend them to everyone we know!”
