Michael Jenewein is a wedding and elopement photographer for Austria and Tyrol

I was fascinated by photography since I can remember. My education with photographic and architectural elements led to the work as a freelance photographer and architect. The work with the Leica M and Fuji X system brought me to wedding photojournalism and closer to the passion of capturing honest moments and details with a camera, that one would not usually notice.

So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible .

Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors.

Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
