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.
