Destination Elopement Photography
If you’re thinking about breaking away from traditional wedding planning in favor of a destination elopement, I truly believe you’re onto something magical. More and more couples are choosing destination elopements as a way to create a wedding day that feels authentic to their love for travel and adventure. And as a bonus, destination elopements can be much more affordable than planning a reception for 200 people in your home town!
Destination elopement photography is my very favorite kind of work, because traveling has always been a huge part of my life. In the nine years since I boarded a flight from Norway to Denver with no return ticket, I have road-tripped all over the United States, spent months at a time exploring Europe, and traveled back to Norway often enough to know the Icelandair in-flight announcements by heart. I am especially confident in my knowledge of Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the U.K., France, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, but I will gladly travel anywhere in the world with you!
As a Norwegian citizen and U.S. permanent resident, I am legally allowed to work in all of the EU and EEA countries, and of course the U.S. as well. If you are getting married in a different country, I will of course get a work visa so that you don’t have to worry about your photographer being stopped at the border. I speak English and Norwegian fluently, and Swedish, Danish, German, and French well enough to ask a local where we can find an epic view for your portraits!
We can’t tell you how absolutely appreciative we are of all of your help. You made this trip a million times easier and we can’t thank you enough. You made our day!

How can I help you?
If you’re just looking for someone to take some photos of you in front of a waterfall in Iceland for an hour, we’re probably not the best fit. If I’m going to travel around the world to photograph you, I want to help you plan the most epic and unique day possible, rather than just copy photos you’ve seen on Instagram.
So if you want to spend a week hiking from hut to hut in the Swiss Alps, or enjoy a lazy weekend at a private chateau on the French Riviera with your friends, or cuddle up with your partner on a freezing cold night under the northern lights in Finland in your personal glass-ceiling igloo, and get married in the midst of your adventure?
And you have no idea how to start making this happen?
I’m your person.
