Adventure Elopements & Destination Weddings

YES YES YES!

You two are choosing to adventure for your wedding and I could not be more stoked for you.
I know deciding to elope or get married far away from home isn’t an easy decision, but, it’s YOUR decision and I am here with a fist raised in solidarity for you.
There are many reasons you could have come to this path and all of them are valid.
From one adventurer to another- I understand you and why you are doing this. I am with you every step of the way.
We are going to make sure that your own Adventure Elopement or Destination Wedding is as special as it can be.

I love this stuff.

I can’t wait to take you to jaw dropping locations. To put you and your love in the middle of a lava field and catch you as you embrace each other.
I can’t wait until we adventure around Scotland and document you saying your vows to the LOVE OF YOUR LIFE as the Scotland fog kisses the top of our heads.
I am so stoked to laugh with you when you realize the bottom of your dress is basically destroyed and your boots should never enter the inside of a house again. When you reach up and notice the wind has completely disheveled your hair and the rain is making little drops on your shoulders.
But you both are SO into it
I seriously get so so excited to adventure, anywhere, at any time.
And capturing two people being vulnerable and pouring their hearts out for one another while doing it is just the icing on the cake. NO WAIT. It is better than that. It is what the best dreams are made of.

Together we will say “þetta reddast”, my friends.

YOU ARE AMAZING!! ❤️ OUR PHOTOS ARE AMAZING!! 🙌

All our family and friends are obsessed with the photos. We cannot thank you enough!! You are incredible .”

If you haven’t figured it out by now,
I am obsessed with Iceland and obsessed with travel.

iceland-elopement-photographer-iceland-wedding

If there's one thing to know about me, it's that I am passionate about traveling and I am in love with volcanos, glaciers, and the sea. I travel as often as possible all around the world (for work and fun!), it is my lifestyle and what I am accustomed to. In 2018 alone, I went to 5 countries, left Brooklyn 21 times, and spent 190 days outside of the U.S. (And I am still alive!).

I have shot weddings in 6 countries, from Mexico to Norway, and from the White Sands of New Mexico to England. Traveling and adventuring into unknown landscapes FIRES UP my soul, and I would not pick any other way to live. 

Oh, and I am in Iceland, A LOT.  I live in Iceland part-time and own an Icelandic Wedding Photography company.

That’s right, I have a business in both Iceland and Brooklyn. I am not joking about my love for adventure. Picking a photographer who knows the island well is IMPORTANT.

We loved Stephanie’s deep knowledge of Iceland and her ability to capture the essence of our ceremony. She is an incredibly talented photographer and can create photos that embody the expansive beauty of Iceland and the romance of our wedding. Our wedding day would not have been the same without Stephanie.

Hiring an experienced traveling photographer for your adventure wedding is crucial.

But really.
Having someone who doesn’t bat an eye at booking plane tickets, packing A LOT OF EXPENSIVE camera gear, traveling efficiently so you aren’t having to pick up a lost photographer trying to find their way to you, and is completely content eating petrol station sandwiches because sometimes that is the only choice (oh, you have been there, too!) is priceless.
Having a photographer that has to crowd source Facebook groups on what gear to bring, how to back up YOUR IMPORTANT WEDDING FILES while traveling, how to prep for your big day, how to come up with a killer itinerary because they don’t travel for a living is just fucking silly.
Ain’t nobody got time for that.


How it works when you book me as your
Adventure Elopement + Destination Wedding Photographer:

Custom Adventure Location Itinerary & Help Planning.

As I am always traveling around the world, and live in Iceland, I have an extensive list of locations that I will create your custom itinerary with. It is kind of like a sick hobby, I am always saving locations I want to take my couples to. You should see my google maps account. There are so many stars it looks like the fricken’ Hollywood Walk of Fame.

First I will get to know what types of landscapes you are drawn to, a few other details of your trips plans, and from there create something special that is perfect for the two of you (including coffee & yummy food stops). You will also get unlimited communications with me, Vendor Guide, Timeline Construction, what to pack, and more.
I also am a vendor with the BEST Iceland Wedding Planner, so if you want help with paperwork, day tours, and more- I can help you.

If you are having an Iceland Elopement, hiring a local is the best decision you can make. You will get all of my network and resources.

Often couples will bring photographers with them who are portfolio building and just want to go to Iceland, but Iceland is a beast. There is safety and knowledge needed in order to have the best experience possible.

Right after you lock me in for your date, you will get sent my Preferred Vendor Guide of everyone you will need and a step-by-step guide on what you need in order to get married in Iceland. I even give you all of the government forms for you all in one place. You will get some helpful blogs on what to know and I am constantly making new resources to give my clients to help you out. Including the best restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and day tour suggestions.

Digital Details.

You will get your own Client Portal with me, an online Highlight Gallery within a week, final online gallery 6-8wks later, print size and social media sized downloads, personal printing rights, a high quality printer setup in your gallery to order whenever you want (and send to family so you aren’t the middle-(wo)man), Album Print Credit, and my online resources for planning your adventure before and after your elopement.

How cool is that?

iceland-elopement-photographer

You get me. (Which is awesome.)

I have been a world wanderer for years and know how to travel (and how to travel for work keeping your photos safe). Since first stepping foot in Iceland I fell in love. You will get my extensive knowledge and communication, my uncanny ability to have fun no matter where we are, my tour guide abilities while out adventuring, my born given talents of making people feel comfortable, and someone you can be around that will end up becoming your friend. I am lucky that my job takes me around the world and has me laughing around all sorts of landscapes giving my clients the most fun experience. It is what I was born to do.
Since I am so accustomed to travel, my Adventure Weddings pricing includes travel. I will take care of all of my own details, if necessary, so you don’t have to.

Other adventures with me.

Not everyone who adventures around the world does it for their wedding. I also offer Honeymoon Adventure Sessions, EPIC Secret Proposals, Adventure Engagement Sessions, and personal photographer tour guide services. If you want to adventure and have a photographer with you, then I will do that.
These start at $600 and will come with a custom itinerary and help planning.


No matter where in the world you are wanting to get married,
just let me know. I am so there.

I seriously always have a bag packed and ready. I am not joking. Since I live equal time in two continents (am I crazy? Maybe.), I have 2 of everything. I always have my trusty carryon backpack with comfy travel and hiking clothes, my Norwegian woolen socks and thermals, and hiking boots packed and READY. TO. GO. My camera gear lives in it’s home (my travel gear bag), at all times. I take it out when charging batteries, cleaning, or using it. All I need is enough time to buy plane tickets and then we are GOOD TO GO.
