Is the helicopter going to mess up my hair?
The helicopter only mess up hair if you’re standing right under it when it starts and lands and that’s not where you are going to be! The helicopter will start when you are securely inside and be turned off when we land at our location, so your hair will look perfect.

I got 6 inch Jimmy Choo’s can I use them up there?
Yes, of course, we love high heels and they make for great photos! However, at certain locations you might be better with a pair of flat shoes, or boots depending on the season, to get you safely to your photo location before you get into the nice ones.
Is it cold up there?
In the summer it’s usually fine but it is always recommended to have another layer of clothing with you. Especially for adventure and glacier weddings. In the winter, it will be freezing – so make sure you have a good jacket on – you wont keep it on the whole time of course!
