Today I woul like to show you this beautiful mountain couples photoshoot I did in the Italian Dolomites in South Tyrol. In my opinion, the Dolomites are the most beautiful mountains in Europe. I am happiest when I’m a wedding photographer in the Dolomites.
Adventure Photo Session in Cortina d’Ampezzo
Back to the photoshoot: I took Anna and Philipp, a German couple, on a adventure photo session near Cortina d’Ampezzo. After we met at the parking lot, we had to start hiking. I have never been to the lake Lago di Limides (check out my travel blog for the hike – German only) where we shot most of the images. Having some years of experience in photographing mountain couples, I am good at researching the right place beforehand.
Hiking to the shooting location in the mountains
It took us about an hour until we reached the lake Lago di Limides. Let me tell you: this would be also a perfect spot for your engagement photos in the mountains or even a proposal (ohhh I would be on board).
Because it was fall, there wasn’t as much water in the lake than we expected. It was even already partly frozen. Any way I think it looked great and everything fell into place perfectly.
Couple Photoshoot at Lago di Limides
After we finished at the lake, we continued our little adventure photo session with more hiking. We stopped again for more couples pictures at other spots. The Dolomites are just so beautiful! Together we finished the hike and arrived back at the parking lot some hours later. A perfect day for a perfect couple shoot in the mountains with a lot of adventure!

Yes! It is best to have a car. There is limited public transport and to get to the hiking (or photoshoot) spots you need a car. I can recommend using sunnycars* to book in advance.
