Have you always been dreaming of having a destination wedding or elopement in Austria? Can you already see yourself having a romantic and intimate wedding in the beautiful Austrian landscape, maybe in the beautiful mountains of Tyrol, the gorgeous capital Vienna or one of the picturesque mountain villages? Of course you could combine your destination wedding with a skiing vacation for your whole family as well as a post-wedding couple shoot in the snow.

Wedding Photographer in Austria

I am Renate van Dijk and I am a destination wedding photographer and founder of with photography. I’m specialised in weddings abroad in Europe and I’m based in The Netherlands, London and Belgrade. I photograph weddings in the whole of Europe and I love destination weddings. Have a look at my wedding photography portfolio and find out where I have traveled to because of this passion. I would love to photograph your wedding in Austria because I’m addicted to travel but I prefer to be on the road to shoot two awesome people in an epic landscape even more. Austria is a fantastic background for beautiful winter wedding but in summer the green mountains and picturesque Austrian villages also bring beautiful views to your wedding photos. Since 2005 I have been shooting weddings in Austria every winter, for example in Kirchberg and in Brixen im Thale. But also if you’re getting married in one of the other beautiful places in the Tyrol, in Salzburg, Innsbruck or, one of my favourite cities in the world, Vienna, I’d love to capture your wedding for you. Here you can read my top tips for an amazing winter wedding in the snow.

I can give you lots of tips on having a stressfree destination (winter) wedding in Austria. I often travel to Austria for weddings abroad and I grab every opportunity to travel through this scenic country.

I photographed weddings in Tyrol, mostly in Kirchberg, Brixental and Brixen im Thale. And I can’t wait to shoot more weddings, elopements and couple shoots in other Austrian locations! So don’t hesitate to contact me to check if I’m still available for your wedding in Austria. I can’t wait to hear all about your wedding plans!

how I work


With all the stress that comes with organising a wedding, the last thing you need is to worry about cramping your day into 8 hours of wedding photography. Your wedding is the only wedding I’ll shoot that weekend. As a matter of fact I’ll be with you the entire day. I don't care if your wedding is 6 hours or 16 hours, actually I prefer capturing the whole story of your day. For me the real work starts after the wedding day, when I start editing you images.


Unlike other photographers, you can print your photos wherever you want. You receive all your photos fully edited and in high-resolution, so you can do with them whatever you want. You can even print your own wall-art and albums (of course I can also arrange those for you if you prefer) and you can keep all your digital files safe wherever you want, without any extra costs.


I traveled all over the world, photographed in all types of weather circumstances and shot weddings as big as 200 guests and as small as 11 guests. With my experience you don’t have to worry about a thing. Shooting in the snow in Austria/with lots of bright light in Italy/in a dark castle in Scotland/while being sandblasted in Iceland? I’ve done it! Plus my pricing includes travel costs within Western Europe, I speak English (and Dutch) at near-native level, we can meet in London or Holland beforehand and I am familiar with all the English, Dutch and American wedding customs and traditions.

Now you know a bit about me, I would love to hear more about you! I would love to hear all of your plans and ideas for your wedding. Please fill in this email form or email me your story in your own words at so I can see if me and my photography are a fit for your wedding. When you fill in the form and tell me about your plans I will email or call you back asap (at least within 48 hours) to let you know my availability for your wedding in Austria.

'Renate was so easy to work with'
Marina & Stephen about their destination wedding in Serbia

'Having our wedding in a different country meant that we had a briefing with Renate over email which was as successful as in person as we were asked the right questions that put us at ease... On the day of our wedding celebration Renate was so easy to work with... She was responsive to all our requests as well as being non-intrusive and told the story of our day with main points beautifully captured... We are happy customers with photos to show it.'

'WOW they are beautiful!'
Jennie about her bridal prep wedding photos
