Laid Back, Cinematic,
& Emotive Photographs
As your Iceland elopement & wedding photographer, the goal isn’t to create a trendy narrative or portray you in a way that misrepresents you. Rather - take the time to understand what you’re looking for, what you want from your wedding day, understand your journey, and provide you with an experience unique to you.

My Promise To You
Just Know This:
My goal isn’t to create a trendy narrative or portray couples in a way that misrepresents them. Rather - take the time to understand what you’re looking for, what you want from your wedding day, understand your journey, and provide you with an experience unique to you.
Rather, it's to preserve a unique viewpoint of your life that you might otherwise overlook and share this in a way that best captures and inspires you– for this life & generations to come.
I can assure you there won’t be any performance to your wedding photographs, just your day as it unfolds. Together, we'll capture and celebrate moments created from your own perspective–your unique life experience.
From Your First Contact - To The Last Roll Of Film
I'm here to help & support - You don’t need all the answers - just a dream of what you want - and I'll do my best to get you there. I'm always a phone call or text away for anything you might need.
For elopements- From your ceremony experience to what you'll do on your wedding day - I'll help you plan it out. I’ve shot 75+ elopements & weddings, and I’ll make sure there aren’t any surprises throughout the whole experience.
For traditional weddings - Just live out your wedding day & I'll be there to capture every moment - forget any mention of a performance. Just be yourselves & together we'll create an incredible work of art that you can relive forever.

But The Truth Is, They Become The Triumphs Of Our Journeys
We overlook these insignificant moments every day. But the truth is, they become the triumphs of our journeys, substantial moments overshadowed in the business of life. It’s not until we cut through the noise do we expose the work of art that’s been there all along.
Your story is already there, and I want to help you bring it to light.

Adventure Is Awesome, But Your Story Is Better
For the laid bacK
and lovers of everyday life
The depth of your story goes deep beneath the surface of what we can see. Let's not focus on just this one adventure. Rather, that despite all odds, you found each other & the journey that brought you here today.
You Don't Have To Leave Everything & Everyone Behind
Elopements and intimate weddings aren't about compromise, they're about intention. Do what feels authentic to you, and don't leave behind who and what is crucial to your story.
Your Story Deserves To Be Told In Full, Without Pause
Our differences and personal life experience is what makes us unique. That very experience shapes your story into a one that no one else on earth has lived, and that deserves to be celebrated.
To start - fill out the form via the 'contact' page and I'll be in touch within 24-hours to introduce myself & set up a time for us to hop on a laid-back call where we can get to know one another.
Connect + Introductions
I want to understand what it is your looking for, what you want your wedding day to be like, hear & understand your journey. After, I'll create a customized package for you that reflects just that.
Once you feel confident that I'm your person, to lock in your date, I ask for a signed contract agreement in addition to a 30% retainer to lock in your date. After that, it's all official!
Your Date & Retainer
After securing your date, we can dive deeper into planning every aspect of your day. This is super easy & laid back, starting with a questionnaire to find what your non-negotiables & must haves are.
Planning Your Experience
On your wedding day, you'll be able to fully live in the moment and I'll be there to capture it all. After, I'll take the time to edit your film & photos into a piece of art that's all about you.
