Fiona's family. The 7132 Hotel in Vals. // Destination family photographer in Switzerland.

Fiona and Jens live in Germany, and this December I had the pleasure of photographing them in Vals, Switzerland. When Fiona wrote me and invited to come to the Hotel 7132 to take pictures of her family, I was immediately very excited. 7132 Hotel is a fantastic place famous for its architecture and design, iconic thermal baths and spectacular panoramic view of the mountain valley. I loved every minute of this beautiful 3 hours session.

If you are interested to know more about the hotel, I found this interesting article written by Epic Europe, a bespoke adventure travel operator based in the Alps and beyond, catering to the luxury experiential traveler. https://www.epiceurope.com/stay-detail/?item=thermes-vals-hotel-7132

The 5-star 7132 Hotel and the adjacent 7132 House of Architects features a unique collection of rooms designed by renowned architects: Tadao Ando, Peter Zumthor, Kengo Kuma and Thom Mayne. Its architect, Peter Zumthor, was awarded the world's most prestigious prize for architecture for this masterpiece.

 Layered stone upon stone, and presented magnificently with light effects, it was built in harmony with the mountain and the surrounding landscape: the green Therme Vals. The edifice is constructed of 60,000 quartz pieces from the local mountains. Together they form a mystical, sensual and surprisingly light vessel for the thermal waters. Pleasantly warm at 30-degree Celsius, the waters originate in the Valser Valley and are full of healing minerals.

 Stone and water at various temperatures (indoor pool 32°C, outdoor pool 30°C to 36°C) and the effect of the light as it changes in the course of the day, turn Therme Vals into a mystical oasis of peace. Blossom bath, sound grotto, cold and fire bath, steam baths and drinking stones are to be found side by side in this building of rock, the first edifice in Switzerland to be designated a protected monument shortly after it opened. 

Asked to describe his building, architect Peter Zumthor said: "Mountain, stone, water – building in stone, building with stone, building into the mountain, building out of the mountain, being in the mountain – how can all the associations and all the sensuousness which these words evoke be translated into a building, that is to say, interpreted in architectural terms? As we worked on the design of this building and saw it take shape, we gradually found answers to these questions."

Amalfi Coast Wedding //Destination Wedding in Italy //Elopement at Villa Cimbrone

This is my most favourite editorial shooting I have done so far, which is not surprising as it was styled by the renowned wedding designer Joy Proctor, famous for her elegant and romantic aesthetics, at the truly stunning Amalfi Coast.

Franziska & Emmanuele, wedding in St. Moritz // Hochzeitsfotograf in St. Moritz

Last Summer I photographed such a beautiful wedding in St. Moritz. It was an intimate celebration with closest family and friends. The ceremony was held in my favourite Celerina. San Gian church was delicately decorated with brunches of larch trees that grow in the Engadine forests. So simple and yet so exquisite!

Rebecca & Greg, wedding in Luzern // wedding photographer in Luzern // Zivile Trauung im Portraitsaal, Luzern

I am still not sure what I love about this wedding the most - the beautiful Hotel des Balances, where Rebecca was getting ready, or her fabulous alabaster skin? Or was it her dreamy shoes and embroidered silky layers of the wedding dress that I was not able to stop taking pictures of? Or her classic hair style that will never go out of style? Or was it the charming smile of the Groom?  Well, I guess it was a perfect combination of everything :) (and I could not think of a more stunning venue to register the marriage than the majestic Portraitsaal in the Rathaus of Lucerne!)

Rainy wedding in Zermatt // wedding photographer in Switzerland // destination wedding photographer Zermatt // Hochzeitsfotos aus Zermatt

Another beautiful wedding that I loved a lot last year ... This lovely couple chose to exchange their wedding vows in Zermatt. They traveled all the way to Switzerland from the USA with family and friends and stayed at Cervo Mountain Boutique, where they planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony with the spectacular view of the iconic Matterhorn. On the morning of the wedding it started to rain cats and dogs, and the Matterhorn, perfectly seen just the day before, was completely covered with grey clouds. The gorgeous flower arch and all the ceremony decor had to be transported to the Ferdinand restaurant. The groom's mother was the Officiant, and the whole ceremony was very personal and emotional for the bride and groom. Despite of the heavy rain we still took outdoor portraits in the nearby meadow, which was actually a fun to do! The newlyweds celebrated well into the night with their guests!
