Hiking elopement at Lake Isabelle in Indian Peaks Wilderness

Want to elope in Norway?

For couples who want to explore a new country and get married in the most breathtaking landscapes of Norway, with a born-and-raised Norwegian photographer to plan and capture the whole adventure.

“Nina was the key to making everything perfect on our elopement day. She helped with vendors, location scouting, and whatever it takes to get the perfect shot! She made us feel at ease and confident with our decision from the very beginning—she’s worth every penny! Nina is kind, friendly, warm, and inviting, and up for any adventure you throw at her! This is your photographer!!!”

I’m Nina, and I’m Norwegian

(The born-and-raised kind.)

I grew up on a small island off the coast of Trøndelag, in the middle of Norway, with a population of 800 people. I spent my childhood cross-country skiing, hiking, canoeing, and road-tripping across Norway. I even had a pet fox.

Come to think of it, my parents were cooler than I gave them credit for.

But I’m also Coloradan

hiker chick, mom, snow enthusiast, and elopement photographer.

I moved to Colorado in 2010, fell in love, and fourteen years later I’m still exploring my way across the mile high state. I’ve planned and photographed over 250 elopements, and I love nothing more than to help couples get married in a way that they’re excited about.

And after a pandemic-induced delay, I’m finally offering elopements in Norway again. I know my home country even better than I know Colorado, and would love to help you elope there.

“Nina helped us plan our elopement in Norway, and we could not have picked a better person to show the way. We are so happy that we trusted her to capture it, because we could not be happier with the pictures from such an important and special day in our lives.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, it’s one of my favorite parts of planning! Whether you already have an idea of where you want to travel or know absolutely nothing about Norway, I’ll help you find the perfect location for your elopement.

I do not charge travel fees on top of the prices listed here for elopements in Norway, because I’m always happy for an excuse to travel back home.

I help my couples with location guides, vendor recommendations, travel itineraries, and creating a timeline for the elopement day(s). My couples also get a big planning guide with tips on wedding attire, adventure gear, activity ideas, lodging and travel, and everything else I’ve learned from planning and photographing over 250 weddings & elopements since 2017. 

No! There are so many incredible views in Norway that you can drive right up to, and we can also take a ferry, sleigh ride, snowmobile, gondola, or any number of adventurous transportation methods if you don’t want to hike on your elopement day.

Generally speaking, locations off the beaten path will feel more secluded, but we can avoid crowds at easily accessible locations by visiting at off peak times.

Short answer: no—however many people you want to be a part of your elopement, there are ways to make it happen.

That being said, many locations on public lands have group size restrictions. The smaller you keep your guest list, the more locations you’ll have to choose from, and especially if you want a free and secluded location. Once your group gets bigger than 10-15 people, you’ll most likely need to book a venue.

Norway has a lot of beautiful, historic wedding venues that would be great for an intimate wedding, and I’m happy to help you find the perfect one.

I generally don’t book more than 18 months in advance, and most of my couples book around a year out—but reach out no matter when you’re getting married. If I’m available, I’d love to help you plan and capture the day!

You do not need to have a specific date picked out before contacting me. If you want warm weather and wildflowers, fall colors, or a winter wonderland, I can help you pick the best date based on the location, weather, and avoiding any local events or holidays that can make a place more crowded than normal.

Get in touch via my contact form, and tell me all about what you want from your elopement, and what you’ve planned so far. If I’m available, we’ll schedule a video chat to talk more about your plans and how I can help you. This part is super important! The more comfortable you are around your photographer, the better your photos will be, too, so let’s make sure we’re a good fit before you book.

If you decide to work with me, I’ll send you a booking link with your contract and the invoice for the 50% retainer. Once you’ve signed and paid it’s official and we’ll get started on planning your elopement.

You’ll get 5-10 sneak peek photos within two days after your wedding, and your full gallery will be ready within six weeks.

Your photos are delivered in a digital gallery that you can easily share with family and friends. You can download your photos as many times as you want, as high resolution files without any watermarks. Your online gallery will be live for one year, so you’ll need to download and backup your photos elsewhere.

The exact number of photos will depend on how many hours I’m there for, and what’s happening throughout the day, but around 50 photos per hour of coverage is normal. You’ll get all the good stuff, without any unflattering photos or lots of duplicates of the exact same thing.

Yes, every photo is edited in a style consistent with what you see on my website. I don’t retouch body shapes, hair, skin, or clothing, because I want you to look like yourselves in your photos!

You can order high quality prints, wall art, cards, and wedding albums directly from your online gallery. All products ordered from your gallery come from my preferred printing labs, and are shipped directly to your home.

You’ll also get a print release that allows you to print your photos anywhere you’d like, but I can’t guarantee the colors and quality on any prints and products ordered outside of your gallery shop.

“We couldn’t be happier with our experience working with Nina! Her help extended far beyond just photography—she was instrumental in planning our elopement.
