“Whoever you are, and whatever you’re doing, just stop. In your inundating search for the best photographer, you have ended up here reading about Steph which means your search has ended - hoorah!
I can promise you that she is exactly what you want and honestly, she is exactly what you need. Steph is passionate about love and it shows; not only in her indescribable pictures but even in the way she interacts with you. It is so evident that her motivation is to make your day exactly what you want it be…and then go beyond that to exceed your wildest expectations! She *makes you feel like she’s your closest friend that you allowed to witness your most lovingly important moment (*and make no mistake, it’s genuine - she truly does want to be your best friend).

Steph captured not only the big moments of our wedding - the I Do’s, the kiss, the crying - but also the small ones you forget or the ones that you don’t think anyone else would notice. She has some insane ability to be present in those private moments when you feel like it’s you and your partner against the world. She is present but never crowding, participating but never interjecting. There was nothing forced, she instead beautifully captured the exciting impulsivity of the day! If you want a documentarian point of view of your special day that perfectly captures the raw chemistry and excitement you share as partners, then I doubt you can find anyone better than Steph. She also takes all the stress out of planning.

I literally told her to plan the day however she liked and that was by far the best decision I made (besides the part where I actually married the love of my life hah). Steph is an expert at love, at weddings of all kinds, and travel! I couldn’t have planned a better day - she took us to places we would have never found and made us feel like we didn’t have to think about anything at all. We could instead just enjoy every moment of the day. If there is one thing I can suggest to you, random person, is book Steph right now…you’ll never regret it.”

“We had an incredible experience with Steph as our Iceland elopement photographer!
She was super responsive too all of my questions in the beginning and provided all of the information I needed to make a decision and pick her as our photographer. I really appreciated the video call in the beginning so she could explain everything and I could start to get to know her. Ultimately we decided to go with Steph over another photographer because 1) she is obviously insanely talented. Anyone who looks at her portfolio can see that. And 2) she knows soooo much about Iceland.

I cannot overstate how awesome it was to have a photographer who knows the country so well. It took a ton of stress off of me to have her able to pick out locations and plan our elopement day. She really did the work of both a photographer and planner. The day of the elopement, Steph made us feel so comfortable and was so easy to be around. She drove us to the most incredible locations (even with a change of plans due to the weather!) and created an epic day for us.
It was also obvious that Steph was just as excited to be there as we were. The whole environment that day added to the experience for us. While the vast majority of pics are more documentary style and less posed, she also took a few pics I specifically asked for. Only a few days after the elopement, Steph sent us a sneak peek gallery of around 30 photos. It was so great to get these few peeks and not have to wait weeks to see our photos! The photos are obviously incredible, as you can see!”

 

Ayaka & Andrew

“No number of stars, up-votes, thumbs-up or hearts could adequately reflect how awesome Steph is.
Her work speaks for itself, but breathtaking, remarkable, gorgeous, amazing, magical and a few choice expletives were common feedback I received when sharing her photos from our Iceland adventure elopement. She checks all the boxes and throws a few in for kicks: creative, extremely talented/disciplined, very professional (dialed in!), passionate, considerate, communicative, fair and fun! I couldn't be happier to give Steph my highest recommendation.”

 
 
 

Alexis & Joe

“Stephanie was amazing through our initial consultation all the way to the last minute of our shoot! 
She is super easy-going, a great communicator (I never waited more than a few hours for a response on anything but most of the time even quicker than that!), and has a great eye. We hired her for an adventure/engagement shoot in Iceland which was one of the craziest/most fun/beautiful days of my life and we will definitely utilize her again for our wedding next year :)”

Megan & Jerry

“I can't recommend Steph enough. 
She is accomodating and fun while still professional and organized, not to mention extremely talented.
Steph made me feel relaxed and excited about my wedding, allowing me to just enjoy it while she captured stunning shots of me and my husband as we really are. When we were in Iceland she took us to amazing locations, and was incredibly knowledgeable about the places we went. Because of her guidance and expertise, my husband and I were able to experience natural wonders we never would have found on our own, and because of Steph's talent, we have those moments captured in time. I just want to keep hiring her! And seriously, her work is remarkable.”

 
 

Melissa & Ben

“Stephanie made our wedding wonderful! 
She is a fantastically talented photographer, a knowledgeable guide and a great person.
As soon as we reached out to Stephanie, we knew we were in good hands. She was familiar with the location in Iceland where we were eloping, had ideas for our ceremony and the photoshoot afterwards and was very helpful the day of the wedding. Best of all, her pictures are beautiful. Our friends and family are blown away by the quality and beauty of the photos. Overall, we had a great experience with Stephanie and highly recommend her to any couple considering a photographer.”

Vanna & Kevin

“STEPHANIE IS A UNICORN! I’m not kidding either.
We eloped in Iceland and our experience was everything and more than we hoped for thanks to Stephanie…Dream location I’ve honestly had a hard time coming up with the words to capture our experience because I fear that it won’t serve it justice. Stephanie is insanely talented and has a special eye for beauty. She is an expert and truly cares about each of her clients. I hate being the center of attention and feel awkward having my photo taken, Stephanie made me feel super comfortable and is a blast to be around. Our day didn’t go as planned due to a huge blizzard that was headed our way, because Stephanie knows so much about all things Iceland she sprang into action with a brilliant plan that not only kept us safe but made our adventure wedding all the more adventurous. Also, while we were running around to different locations we got to see some pretty amazing parts of Iceland that we probably wouldn’t have had the time to go and find on our own. Also, before we left Iceland, she sent me a few photos before she was finished editing so I could post to social media and send to my family – how thoughtful? She’s the whole package and that’s the truth, my husband and I wish we were able to hang out with her more while we were there! She’s a GEM, TRUST ME and BOOK HER NOW :)”

Florence & Matt

“Steph is literally the BEST photographer that you could wish for.  She made everything so easy in the run up, on the day and afterwards and having her there as part of our day meant the world to us! She has great suggestions, rolls with whats's going on but also steps in…and her excellent sense of humour makes her a delight to be around. She somehow manages to sneak around without you realising she's there to get the most amazing shots. Could not recommend Steph enough!”

 


Anne & Christian

“Steph’s not only talented as a photographer...but as a storyteller and writer as well! 
I knew that I was about to meet with an amazing photographer...but never expected to fall in love so much with the person behind the camera. With you it was Friendship as first sight!!! Love you so much!! P.S I still gasp at the photos even if its the hundredth time that I look at it!!!!”

Morgan & Jason

“Best wedding photographer ever!!!
I am an awkward person...as is my new husband...but somehow Steph and her laid back and casual way made us enjoy being captured without feeling awkward or uncomfortable. Also, is it weird when guests compliment the photographer before even seeing their work? She has a way of catching special and candid moments with such stealth. Girl’s got SKILLZ. Thank you, Stephanie, for making our big day extra special.”

 


Kacie & Scott

“You have to work with Steph. Not just for the fantastic, artistic, and important results, but for the process and personal experience.

Steph's communication, business, work ethic, and character are all just the best. From our engagement shoot, to the rehearsal dinner, to the wedding day and evening...Steph fulfilled every single dream and expectation we could ever have had, and so many more above and beyond. Our family and friends are so impressed and in love with the photos and the moments captured. Steph has the best eye for the important, unicorn, most special photo-ops. She's reliable, reachable, and excellent company to be around. We are so glad we found and chose Steph! We are so overwhelmed and over the moon with our wedding photos. It's not enough to write this review...you just have to have her be your photographer. Then you'll get it. :) :)”

From overwhelmed, confused, & uncertain. 

To confident, excited, & at ease.

This experience isn’t about props or buying things that will not matter in 2yrs. It’s about the true sense of adventure. It’s about being on a once-in-a-lifetime experience and having a day that will change you for the rest of your lives. 

It’s about the wonder of human connections and creating a bond that is even stronger at the end of the day than when the day started.

It’s not about what centerpieces you feel OK about, it’s about looking at the love of your life and knowing that they understand you better than anyone else. It’s about you wanting to dedicate an entire trip and make a space to celebrate that love, acceptance, commitment, and strength. 
Through this process you will find the path to have the wedding your soul wants, the plan to make it all come together with ease, and overcome the overwhelm. 

 
 

A few FAQ, a few answers.

 
 
 

#1

Do you document Adventure Elopements & Weddings outside of Iceland?

Yes, I love to travel! I have documented weddings in 6 countries & you can always find me hopping on a plane. Being an American in Iceland, I also am frequently back in the States.


#2

We are interested in a cinematic film, do you offer this?

Under my brand I currently don’t offer video filmmaking services. However, I do offer partner Elopement & Adventure Wedding Videography packages with my filmmaker of choice. On our chat we can discuss the details of hiring us both, together!


#3

Do you help with any elopement planning & have elopement planning packages? We literally have no idea what we are doing.

Hecken heck yeah I do. I help you with full planning to basic planning with all vendors. Or, if you want horses, helicopters, volcanic caves, whatever you’re dreaming up. I have an extensive network so even if not in Iceland I can still lend a planning hand.


#4

We have not picked out our wedding destination yet, is that ok?

Absolutely! We can talk about the locations that are on the top of your list. Patagonia, Iceland, Norway, Scotland, Yosemite, wherever it might be. Once decided, we will create a custom timeline & location itinerary for your wedding. I got you covered.


#5

Do you document Adventure Intimate weddings with guests?

I do! I document elopements and tiny weddings, usually weddings with less than 40 guests. If you are bringing some loved ones along for the fun, we can talk about how your adventure itinerary & transportation will work on our chat.


#6

Do you offer Adventure Photo sessions that are not weddings?

If you want to adventure, I want to be there! I also offer Engagement sessions, vow renewals, honeymoon sessions, maternity, couples being in love, & secret proposals. If you are wanting an Adventure Editorial or Lifestyle session, we can also make that happen.


#7

How does the process work with booking you?

I will be honest for a second, I have worked endlessly for years to create an experience for you that is so much more than ‘getting some awesome photos’. I understand that wedding & vacation planning is time consuming, can be stressful, & likely another thing on your plate. So, the process with booking & working with me is as easy as possible to help alleviate the extra stress. Our initial consult is over the phone so I can learn about you, my Wedding Collections are easy to pick, & your planning is a breeze with getting guidance. You’ll get planning assistance no matter what Collection you decide on and every Collection comes with you having an absolute fun, relaxing, & badass time.


#8

What does an Elopement day feel like?

Your elopement day will feel like you are on top of the world. It’s a day we have crafted together to make you feel completely authentic & comfortable enough to let your walls down. It does not feel like a long photoshoot. Instead, it feels like something absolutely breathtakingly special. It feels like the world is yours for the day while adventuring with your love in an intimate space. You can be as awkward, mushy, or goofy as you want. These are your vows & your promises to each other so feel free to say them however you want.


#9

Do you have suggestions for breweries, restaurants, & day trips?

Oh yeah I do. ‘All-you-can-eat-soup’ is my middle name. I travel a lot and my main hobby while traveling is eating. So even if your wedding isn’t in Iceland, I can still toss some suggestions your way. Because, food.


#10

What are the next steps?

Fill out the contact form to say hi, set up your consult, & then tell me about what you are envisioning for your day. We will work together to make your dream wedding happen.
