You get a pin protected web gallery to download your pictures. Free unlimited downloads. Online for 2 months with re-upload upon request. Backup over 2 years.


I will give you all the edited pictures (+300). Not what I choose to be the best 50 etc.


Prices below are for the photo shoot including my travel costs etc. Not for one hour. No hidden charges like taxes. There is nothing extra to pay.


Payment by cash in Swiss Francs please on the day of the photo shoot. Euros if there is a problem. *See ATM note below


Payment by Zello or Venmo is not possible because I do not have a bank account in the U.S.A.


Payment by Western Union in advance to my Swiss bank account is possible. I get the full amount with no deduction of fees etc. BUT it can be expensive! Do the transfer online. Do not visit your local Western Union location. Easily check transfer fees before you send by doing it online. I will send you my details. However, it is always easier to pay in in cash on the day of the photo shoot. Cash is King!

Three locations in Iseltwald. (About a 10 minute walk from the pier.)
The photo shoot takes between 90 minutes to 2 hours.
I am available from sunrise.

Here is a report from my blog

Lauterbrunnen: CHF. 350.- for 2 people.

We start with the popular location with the church and the valley in the distance. Then a walk to the Waterfall. There is usually a few people waiting to take pictures at the first location. Its not a good location if you want to propose with nobody looking at you. We try to avoid the tourists at the waterfall and get some nice pictures. I will also recommend the Lauterbrunnen Valley if the weather is okay for better views and a quiet location to propose.

Overlooking Lauterbrunnen Valley: CHF. 350.- for 2 people.

We ride on the cog railway from Lauterbrunnen railway station towards Wengen and a spectacular viewpoint of the valley.
Open all year. Your train tickets are not included in the price. People with Swiss Pass travel free from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen and up towards Wengen. We can combine this location with the two locations in Lauterbrunnen.

Here is previous photo shoot.

Männlichen & Royal Walk – CHF. 500.- for 2 people.

On the mountain that overlooks Wengen. You can ride the cable car up from Wengen (stand on the top!) or the new cable car from Grindelwald Terminal. This is a morning or afternoon photo shoot and includes a 25 minute walk uphill (Royal Walk) to the summit (Crown viewpoint). Please remember that I have to carry all my equipment. We are together for about 3 hours. Less if we move faster.

https://johnspixs.com/engagement-on-the-royal-walk/

We will stop at at least 3 locations on the way down to the Männlichen-Wengen cable car. Remember it costs an extra CHF. 5.- to ride on the top of the cabin of the cable car.

Grindelwald Alpine resort – CHF. 350.- for 2 people.

We take the bus from the railway station to the road above Grindelwald and walk back down. Lovely panoramic views.
Remember your Grindelwald Guest card from your hotel. I am not certain but I think it gives you free travel on the bus. Ask the hotel reception.

Bachalpsee Lake – CHF. 790.- to photograph 2 people.

Surface elevation: 2,265 m (7,431 ft) altitude. It’s an hour’s walk from the Grindelwald First cable car to the lake. The first 20 minutes is uphill. Then it is uphill and downhill to the lake. It’s a tough hike for anyone not fit. Or for someone like me carrying a backpack with heavy camera equipment!
There are no shops at the lake. Bring your own food and water. This is a very popular location with tourists. We have to get there early!

Please note: The snow covers the lake during the winter months. You cannot see any water.

I require a deposit of CHF. 200.- to cover my expenses if there is a “no show”

The rest of the payment in Swiss Francs on the day of, or before the photo shoot.

Transfer the payment via Western Union to my bank account.
(Other methods of payment have shown a large fee was deducted and I have not received the full amount.)
