Welcome To All,

Francis Sylvest is an Iceland Destination Wedding and Elopement Photographer.

Iceland Wedding Photographer

Specializing isn’t a term I take lightly – I only shoot in two locations. Furthermore, to better give my clients the upmost wedding experience in Iceland, exclusively shoot in Iceland and where I live, (Colorado, USA).

When hiring an Iceland elopement photographer or Iceland wedding photographer – you need someone who deeply knows, understands and respects the land. Undoubtedly, this approach of specialization allows me to provide you with this experience.

“Austin was an absolute dream to work with! He made us feel comfortable right from the start, gave amazing suggestions where needed, his portal was a massive help for our planning and kept everything organized, and we couldn’t possibly be any happier with the deliverables. THANK YOU for capturing our special day in Iceland so perfectly! We can’t recommend his services enough for elopement photography and videography.”

“Cannot say enough good things about Francis Sylvest. He went above and beyond for us on our elopement trip in Iceland–driving the entire circle road for our trip!! Traveling in Iceland was a breeze; not only did he know the best spots to eat, see a sight, or fun activities to do, he also helped us plan our trip. We felt at ease embarking on our adventure knowing he was just a text or call away. Such a pleasure to travel with and many laughs were had. This is before we even saw the incredible images and video!! His craftsmanship is excellent, and the attention to storytelling for our unique wedding was more than we could ever have hoped for. Hire him!!!”

Black Sand Beach Iceland Wedding

Iceland Destination Wedding

Michelle & Chris decided to have a black sand beach Iceland wedding at the famed Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. Located in South Iceland, it’s easily one of the most popular locations for weddings and elopements in Iceland. After a moody sunrise, we made our way to Sólheimajökull. The mighty glacier towered over us, before the wind at the stunning Katla Geopark.

Just at the base of the Iceland highlands you will find a mighty giant named Háifoss. Formed from the rugged, vast, landscape, this incredible waterfall stops for no one. Naomi & Colin braved the wind, the elements, to explore this giant, but not before making their way to the incredible Glymur Waterfall. Undoubtedly, this Iceland Elopement was one for the books.
