Destination Weddings & Elopements

“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” 
― Robert Louis Stevenson

In the eight 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 can pack for a month of travel in less than an hour, I’ve spent years hunting down the best travel deals, and I will never hesitate to jump into a rental car in a foreign country. (Ask me about that time I lost my car keys in Iceland on a solo hike to find hot springs!)

If you are planning a destination wedding or travel elopement, I would absolutely love to be a part of your big day, so shoot me a message and let’s make it happen! Planning trips is one of my very favorite things in life, so I am happy to help you research the perfect ceremony spot, the most scenic hike for your bridal portraits, and everything that goes with it. Destination wedding photography collections begin at $2200, and travel fees are always included in the package so that you don’t have to worry about how I choose to travel.

As a Norwegian citizen, I am legally allowed to work in all of the EU and EEA countries. I speak English, Norwegian, and some Swedish, Danish, German, and French.
