Since visiting Iceland last year for the first time, Claire and I have seriously fallen in love with this country. It’s a vast and empty land, but if you know where to look, the emptiness has this finesse, this minimalistic beauty of a place stuck in time before us humans really screwed everything up. That’s what Iceland is to me – pure. And this purity is found in the kindness of their people, the never-ending landscapes, and thoughtful design sprinkled across the entire country.

Kennedy and Kirk wanted to adventure, to not really plan this out, and to journey across the Snæfellsnes peninsula with us in tow. After eloping in Stykkisholmur at one of the most northern tips of the world, we did just that. We adventured. Explored. Climbed. We fell (well just me, really – in a troll hole). Above all else, we had fun and were reminded of how beautiful this earth really is.

Here’s a small portion of what happened during our time together.

Many, many thanks as always to Claire Hudson for working alongside me, making travel insanely enjoyable (the week of this particular wedding, we drove 2000 miles and flew for 11 hours – and yes, it’s always worth it) and keeping me sane. Best human, ever.

Wow, you just had my jaw on the floor. That is some killer work and feeling all crammed into one. I didn’t even feel like there was a photographer there (most the time). Bravo, love it!

Oh, my. This is beyond one of the most fantastically beautiful & inspiring elopements I have ever seen. I mean — Iceland!? What a brilliant couple to have chose, in my opinion, one of the most gorgeous places. I’m sure this will be a shoot to remember for you, am I right? :)

You captured each shot so beautiful. Simply amazing. Bookmarking this to swoon over from time to time. :) Thanks for the inspiration!

When you mix concrete, straight lines, minimalism, and a clean aesthetic with the rustic nature of the Hudson Valley you end up with one pretty amazing wedding. Everything came together perfectly for these two and Claire and I were absolutely thrilled to have been apart of this one.

I’m really not sure what was better at this wedding, the food or the people. Both were seriously top-notch and if I could, I’d do this over and over again (most notably eating Bouchon’s lamb… insane). Many thanks to Diana and Long for venturing out into the desert in the mid-day heat and for not being too worried by our actual latitude and longitude meeting point.

As always many thanks to the ever talented Claire Hudson for tagging along on this one. Some of her images are mixed in above.

Loved the Pics. I am very impressed with the quality !!

Claire and I recently headed west to explore Los Angeles, Palm Springs (notably The Ace Hotel), and then finally settling in Joshua Tree. We had some time to collaborate with BHLDN and photographed a bride in the desert.

Joshua Tree itself looked straight out of a Dr. Seuss book, and we loved our time working out there. We’d be thrilled to go back (hint, hint).


Joshua Tree, California.

Many thanks to the lovely Claire Hudson for styling and shooting with me. Many thanks also to BHLDN in Los Angeles, Alicia Lamson, and Kathleen Ty.
