I'm an Adventure Elopement Photographer & Guide based in Iceland (and ready to travel anywhere) with a super human power of helping you forget that you're 'awkward' & 'look weird in photos'. (That's fake news.). I'm here to be your Elopement Yoda & show you the way of the Force by empowering & guiding you as you realize you had it in you all along to rip down societies rules of what you should be doing for your wedding- no matter where in the world it is.  
 
I will make you feel so comfortable that you forget all of your previous being-in-front-of-a-camera hangups. Your wedding won't feel like a long photoshoot, it will feel like you're being guided through a magical adventure, like a Hobbit looking for gold from a dragon. 
 
Nothing resonates with me more than being able to support others as they choose to blaze their own trail and be authentic to themselves.  
 
By being able to be unapologetically yourself, you will have an experience with your partner that will make you closer & stronger together, changing you for the better.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in Reykjavík, Iceland but travel worldwide.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have shot over 200 weddings as a lead photographer, safe to say it's not my first rodeo.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I guide couples through an immersive experience. We adventure around and I don't 'pose', I will guide you into a space and give you the permissions to just be yourselves. Once I see you fall into your relationship dynamic I will document that. I like to make you feel like you the only people out in the giant. vast nature.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I really just want you to have fun and a good time on your wedding. My entire company is built around making this planning process super easy and for me to guide you through the entire journey. On the day of your wedding I only want you to feel relaxed and comfortable so you can focus on whats important.
