Let’s be honest. Choosing your photographer is a big deal. And no, it’s not the financial investment we’re talking about.
You’re inviting someone to witness a very special and intimate day of your life. Moreover, you’re trusting them to tell your story, to capture those fleeting moments that will not be repeated, and to do it in a way that will feel unmistakably YOU.

We’d like to understand your love language. All the little things that add to the whole picture of you as a couple.
And we want to create an honest visual reflection of it.

Are you in?

What makes us special

It’s all about the way it felt

No, your elopement is not a photo session and a hike attached to it. We want your day to be intentional and meaningful, with truly special moments and beautiful memories to cherish!

2 local experts at your service

You’ll get not just one but two local photographers, who are deeply passionate about their job and have lots of experience – we want to share it all with you!

Going on adventure with friends

We like to keep things light and laid back – no ‘official detached business vendor’ vibes. Just a group of friends, exploring, taking photos and having fun!

Meet your photographers

Who you trust to document your most important day matters. And believe when we say this – we don’t take this trust for granted.

We are here for you, from start to finish. No matter what you envision for your celebration, we’ll be there to bring your ideas to life, remove all the stress and make sure that you and your other half have an amazing time!

with love

Daria & Hjalti

Love notes

“Daria and Hjalti were so fun to work with and made sure we felt comfortable and had a marvelous time. Daria gave us some personal conversation prompts that made the experience truly intimate – no posing or feeling awkward, just two people in love in a beautiful place reflecting on what we have together!”

ABBY & JORDAN

“They were so attentive and helped us with planning the places we wanted to visit as well as chatting to our families and setting them at ease.  If you are looking to get married or elope to Iceland, I highly recommend chatting to Daria and Hjalti before you speak to anyone else.”

JAKE & LINDSEY

“Daria and Hjalti, with their warmth and kindness, are among the most delightful individuals we’ve ever met. Their presence made us so at ease that, at times, we forgot about the camera capturing our special moments. The photos speak for themselves, exceeding our expectations in every possible way.”

Exploring the glacier

Walking on the glacier is not as intimidating as it might seem, and you don’t have to be an athlete or an avid hiker to enjoy the experience. Taking it at your own pace and having breaks whenever you need is always welcomed and encouraged. You will be provided with all the necessary equipment and our guide will make sure you’ll have an amazing time exploring. It is possible to have the ceremony and get married on the ice too!

Getting to the glacier

After taking a turn from the main road #1 the guide will safely drive you as close to the glacier as possible, where the trail begins.

Other locations in the south-east

South-east is absolutely gorgeous and boasts of the most stunning locations in the whole of Iceland. If hiking on a glacier didn’t satisfy your craving for adventure, you can opt for another hike to a beautiful hidden canyon. There are also a few waterfalls to choose from, a less known glacial lagoon nearby, and a black sand beach, located further east. No matter what you choose, you won’t be disappointed. And if you’re lucky, you might spot a reindeer or two on your way!

Exploring the ice cave

Just as with the glacier, walking around the ice cave is not as challenging as one might think. This is not ice climbing, with ropes and icepicks involved, and you don’t have to be an athlete or an avid hiker to enjoy the experience. As with any adventurous destination, we advice our couples to proceed at their own pace and take as many breaks as needed.

Getting to the ice cave

The road to the ice cave takes about 1 hour drive one way from the main highway #1. It’s not marked on google, and requires a 4×4 to reach the area comfortably. You can either attempt the road on your own or hire a private driver to take you there.

The area around the glacier and the ice cave

You will see some stunning green mountains in the middle of a black sand desert, beautiful views of the glacier where the ice cave is, and numerous small rivers streaming down from the ice. In our opinion, the area is absolute magic and is worth exploring.

Other locations in the south

The south is the most popular destination area in Iceland and for a very good reason – it’s full of beautiful locations that will cater to anyone’s wishes and preferences. While some more well-known locations may be rather tourists-heavy, other hidden gems are less crowded – you can add to your itinerary whatever appeals to you the most.

Þórsmörk elopement

When: May through October
Locations: waterfall, canyon, glacier, cave, gorge

Ready to tie the knot in a place that looks straight out of a fantasy novel? Welcome to Þórsmörk, one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets! This enchanted valley, named after the Norse god Thor, offers a unique and mystical backdrop, perfect for those who seek true adventure.

Exploring Þórsmörk

Most of the locations in Þórsmörk require walking or hiking, and the terrain can be quite rough. You’ll have to cross rivers and do some light climbing to get to the hidden gems. Having said that, being physically fit and / or an avid hiker is not a necessity – taking it slow and moving at your own pace is welcomed and encouraged. Should you have any concerns regarding whether Þórsmörk is for you, hop on a call with us and we’ll be more than happy to talk you through the details.

Driving in Þórsmörk

The area is famous for its numerous rivers, and while some of them are rather harmless, others should be crossed with utmost caution and on proper vehicles. Unless you are a very experienced off-road driver, venturing to Þórsmörk on your own can be dangerous, extremely expensive (if you sink a rental in a river), and in some cases – lethal. Hiring a guide with a super jeep will remove any kind of potential danger, uncertainty and stress on your elopement day, and needless to say, we work with the best people in the industry, who have our full trust to transport you (and us) around the area safely.

Dining in Þórsmörk

Despite Þórsmörk being a really desolate and uninhabited area, there is a small camping ground with a bar & restaurant from Volcano Trails, called LavaGrill. As a bonus, you may well see an arctic fox or two just outside of the window!

And just some more
useful information

other questions? ask away!

It’s a question of your preferences and wishes for the day – each season has something special to offer. We’ll be more than happy to guide you through it during the discovery call!

Not if you don’t want to! While some couples enjoy a little challenge, it will seem like a daunting and unpleasant task for others. We’re here to help you figure out how to make the most out of your day and what activities to include, so that you can enjoy it to the fullest.

Yes! The area of unrest is located on a small part of Reykjanes peninsula – it doesn’t affect the capital, the airport or any other part of Iceland, which means if you’re not heading straight into it (or staying at Blue Lagoon), it’s perfectly safe to be here.

Super easy! Drop us a line via the inquiry form below, and we’ll hop on a non-binding online call (for the fellow introverted introverts out there, we can totally discuss things via email). When you have enough information and are ready to proceed with booking, we’ll send you an electronic agreement to sign and an invoice for a 50% retainer (all major credit cards accepted). That’s it!

Yes! Anyone can legally get married in Iceland, and the process is actually fairly straight-forward – most of it can be done online.

Depends on a few things! The easiest way to figure this out is to hop on a call with us – we’ll talk about all the exciting options and possibilities, and help you choose the package that is a perfect match to your needs and wishes. You can also check this amazing guide written by Daria that will give you some ideas and inspiration.

Iceland’s weather is famous for its unpredictability, but hey, it’s part of its charm (and your adventure!), otherwise you would probably opt to elope in Tenerife. 
In most cases we advise our couples to embrace and enjoy whatever drama the weather decides to throw at us. However, if it’s utterly miserable, preventing us from traveling safely, we’ll have to reschedule. No worries though, we always keep extra available days for a possible postponement.

The fun part, of course – we start planning! You’ll receive a little questionnaire, so we can get a better feel for what you’re after, and based on your answers we’ll conjure several possible itineraries for you. When the rough itinerary plan is locked in, we’ll take a look at vendors, accommodation, and will iron out all the remaining details. Zero stress!

Yes! Remember, it’s your special day and if you want to be surrounded by your loved ones, by all means go for it!

No. We specialize in micro weddings and elopements, up to 15 people in total.
