Hey, I’m Steph! The Yoda for your Elopement.

I’m a real person with an adventurous, free spirited soul who cares a lot about your experience. I’m grounded yet fun, exciting yet steps back. I’m a wild combo & someone who cares. I’ll be just as excited as you are on your wedding.

Based in Iceland but you can take me anywhere. I’ve documented lovebirds in 6 countries and 15 US States. (I will bring great snacks.)

I’ve found the magic balance of photographer, guide, host, & friend. Taking you to off the beaten path areas you would not find otherwise & documenting your story in an authentic way. Everything will just feel easy & natural.
Your elopement matters & is super important to me.
