Current 2023 Iceland Travel Dates

(Pricing For Dates Below Shows Waived Travel)


All pricing shown on my website includes all travel fees. However, since I do have bookings in Iceland in 2023, the already included travel costs have been removed, and all Iceland pricing for the dates listed below are at a discounted rate as a result! Normally, these packages start at 4850. Why? When I have multiple bookings it doesn't make sense for me to charge everyone the full, fee, so I've reduced costs on each package to spread out these costs evenly. Overall, you'll save $1,000 (already taken off the price shown above) which is a win for all of us!

Adventure Is Awesome, But Your Story Is Better

This entire operation is built on the value that your Iceland elopement story is incredible and worth being told for generations to come. Yes, adventure is awesome, Iceland is incredible, but at the end of the day, without you and your story in it, it’s just another beautiful landscape that many have seen. Your story is what will make it special.

Yes! We’ll create an incredible experience for you on your wedding day, but in the end, we’ll focus on all the little things that make you, you. Regardless of how small or insignificant those things might seem, they’re what make you who you are, and exactly what will carry your legacy for years to come. Your story is always better.

Elopements Aren’t About Leaving Everything & Everyone Behind

On your wedding day, we’ll incorporate all the traditional aspects you want, and leave out everything you don’t. There’s no rules here. Your day can look and feel as traditional or non-traditional as you’d like! Want to bring friends & family? I'm here for it! Would you rather just you and your loved one? I'm still here and cheering you on.

Just know that I’m here to help you create a wedding day that’s 100% tailored to you, regardless of traditions or what seems popular online. Don't listen to the big voices in the industry that tell you what you need or want, make that call based on what feels most authentic to you and I'll be there alongside you to help it come to life.

Your Wedding Day Isn’t The Main Character, You Are

As your Iceland Elopement Photographer, rather than just telling you where & how to pose, we’ll take the time to create intentional experiences for your on your wedding day. With this approach, you’ll be able to experience where you’re at and who you’re with rather than just having me tell you how to pose. While I can give direction if needed, this is a very hands off approach to get the most natural and honest moments.

From exploring new places to doing everyday things you love together, we’ll tell the story of your wedding day through your life experience and the little things that speak to who you are.
