So, traditional way, with a big costly wedding, lots of stress, guests to please and rules to follow is not for you.

Why not celebrate your special day the way you want it, and focus solely on your needs and wishes.

 

A day that truly reflects who you are as a couple.
Eloping in Iceland

I will be honest with you, Iceland is not for the faint of heart.
And if you are the kind of people who prefer mild climate, comfort when being outside and predictability, then eloping here might not be for you.
However, if you are on a wilder side, you love adventure and a bit of a challenge, this country is capable of giving you the most amazing unforgettable experience in the world.

 

The local landscapes cater for anyone’s desires, be it mighty waterfalls, towering mountains, unusual black beaches and lush green lava fields. If you’re lucky, you might even catch an erupting volcano! (from a safe distance of course).

 

I have traveled all over the world, and I can guarantee you, nothing compares to Iceland.

Co-creating your adventure together

I know, even thinking about planning a whole elopement in another country that you have never visited before is overwhelming. What are the rules? Where exactly should you elope? What is the best season to visit? Where are the vendors?

 

I am here not just to photograph you and your beloved, but also help you figure out all these and other questions you might have.

 

Once you have someone “on the inside”, nothing is impossible and planning becomes so much easier and more fun than you ever imagined.

Do something you’ll never regret

We often forget to appreciate the little things that truly matter.
The common thinking is, why even bother with photos, unless there is some sort of big official ceremony attached to it?

 

Truth is, you don’t need a formal occasion to have your photos taken.
You are in love, here and now – and every love story deserves to be remembered.

 

It can be your first time in Iceland, discovering a place you’ve always dreamed of seeing together, an anniversary of you being in love for x amount of time, or maybe a step towards a new life when you propose / get engaged. All the small in between things count, and I will be honored to document them for you.

Meet your photographer(s)

Formalities and explanations aside, let me introduce myself and just say how happy and excited I am to have you here.

 

My name is Daria.
Originally from Norway, I am currently based in Iceland, in a little town of Hveragerdi, about forty minutes drive east of Reykjavik.
This country has conquered my heart from the moment I discovered it for the first time, and I am incredibly lucky to call it home.
I live with my partner Hjalti, who is a musician + Ást og Hraun’s second photographer, and our little black cat, named Kisa (it literally means “cat” in Icelandic).

 

I’ve been a professional photographer for over a decade. It is undoubtedly my life’s passion, and I am deeply inspired by raw intimate connection between two human beings.

 

I would love to help you plan and capture your special day, set in the wondrous and otherworldly landscapes of Iceland.

Ást og Hraun stands for “love and lava” in Icelandic.

Both words date back to Old Norse and haven’t changed a bit in a span of over a thousand years.

Kind words
Yes, we want to elope!
