Alps Adventure Sessions and Pricing



hand-crafted for

couples who love the outdoors

Your Alps Adventure Session

Jaw-dropping mountains, picturesque lakes, glaciers, scenic drives, sprawling wildflower meadows…need I say more? The alps are one of those places I just can't get enough of when it comes to epic destinations. I feel lucky to call the German Alps home and the Swiss, Austrian, and Italian Alps my backyard. I know this place like the back of my hand and I use that expertise to help adventure-seeking couples like you experience the magic of exploring Europe.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s make this session happen!

My passion: capturing love in awe-inspiring places

Meet Your Alps Photographer

As an American photographer based in the German Alps, I jumped into the elopement space not long after planning my own wedding a few years back. When my husband, Scott, and I 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, I’ve found more and more couples like Scott and I. Couples who wanted an ‘’off the beaten path’’ experience in the outdoors that would leave them feeling fulfilled and empowered. Whether it's your wedding day, or you want to celebrate ''just because'', I've got you.

we love working as a team too!

Want to hire both of us?

There's nothing we love more than photographing couples and adventuring together. Two photographers means double the fun + more memories captured. Let us know if you'd like to book us together for an additional €500.

*Scott has limited availability and can generally only photograph weekend weddings

in germany.

Kind Words

I don't even know where to start, the photo session with Christine from Made in the Mountains was a great experience and we are absolutely in love with the results. She put a lot of effort into the session beforehand, we talked through every detail, the outfits, the locations, and when the weather forecast was bad for the location we chose at the date of the session, Christine checked every webcam traceable to find a spot that might still look nice in pictures - and we found it! We had an amazing morning up on a mountain, the pictures turned out gorgeous, which is due to Christine's talent and the fact that she made us feel like we were spending time with friends rather than just doing a job. You can totally feel she loves what she does and her heart beats for the mountains, which is why she knows the perfect locations. Would definitely recommend you book her, you'll cherish these pictures forever!

These aren't your standard elopement packages

Think of the best day you’ve ever had. What made it the best? My guess is, it wasn’t rushed, and it included making memories you wouldn’t trade for anything. That’s the kind of elopement experience you can have with me. Stress-free, and full of the things that matter most.

The best day (s) of your life needs more than a couple hours, which is why I offer full-coverage elopement packages.

That’s why I help every couple craft an epic, stress-free elopement, ranging from half-day to multi-day experiences. Each package is designed to allow room for spontaneity, fun, and relaxation by ditching the traditional ‘’minute-by-minute’’ plan. Instead, you get an experience filled with as much (or as little) as you need to create the perfect adventure.

Your one-of-a-kind adventure deserves more than a one-size fits all package.

What can you do during a half-day, full-day (or longer!) elopement?

You'll notice my packages are ''up to 'x' hours coverage''. After working with countless couples in the outdoors, I've found the best experiences are often flexible. That means, if you think you'll only need four hours, you'll still fall under my half-day package, so you don't feel any pressure to cut the adventure short when you're having the time of your life. Maybe you're tackling a long trail or moving between a few different locations during a full-day elopement - you've got all the time you need to rest, soak up the views, and maybe even stop at a hut or two for fresh cheese or a cold drink.

Here's some unique inspiration to help spark your imagination for what to do during your elopement.
