So my mate Stefan (Stefan Hellberg Photography = epic) and I were chatting one day on the World Wide Web.

“Man we should shoot together sometime.” Says Stefan.

“For sure!” Says I.

“I have a wedding in a village, by a lake in the Swiss Alps, you can only get to it by gondola!” Says Stefan. “There will cows with bells, men with big horns, lots of cheese and a very very cool couple!”

“Dude, I’m there.”

And that is pretty much how I found myself in an insanely beautiful mountain landscape in the Swiss Summer, shooting an incredibly awesome wedding full of everything that Stefan promised and sooo much more.

This is my take on that day….
