Stunning Couples Session at Skógafoss

I recently got the chance to photograph Sól and Guðjón in front of one of Iceland’s most stunning and iconic waterfalls; Skógafoss. To say it was an unforgettable experience would be minimizing how incredible it actually was!

Having this be my first day’s experience in Iceland meant my trip was already off to a great start. Not only was it perfect weather that day, but we had Skógafoss almost completely to ourselves! If you’re looking to have a popular location all to yourselves I highly recommend going at either sunrise or sunset. If you’re in Iceland for the midnight sun this might mean going super late (or super early depending on how you look at it!).

Skógafoss is guaranteed to drench you if you stand anywhere near the bottom, but Sól and Guðjón were adventurous and weren’t phased by the water. They instead embraced being soaked by the water and ran around together absorbing the experience. I loved that they took moments to embrace each other and simply take in the fact that they were together in such a beautiful spot.

Skógafoss is not only one of Iceland’s most popular waterfalls it also leads to 25+ more waterfalls if you adventure up the stairs and continue on the path! This path is part of the Fimmvörðuháls trail which is around 25 km long and takes you into Thórsmörk (another insane spot I highly recommend checking out if you’re visiting Iceland). You don’t need to complete the entire 25 km, you can go as far as you’d like and return instead. It’s suggested that walking up to 8 km will show you a lot of the 25+ waterfalls this route has, making the in-and-out trek around 16 km total. Once you’re past the stairs at the start the trail is actually quite flat with a few hills.

After the session, Sól and Guðjón were kind enough to share some local tips and hidden gems for me to check out on my journey around the country. While Iceland’s landscapes are breathtaking, it’s the connections and moments like these that truly made the journey memorable.

If you’re looking for tips and the best places to elope in Iceland I made a blog post here just for you!

Whether you’re exploring the idea of eloping in Iceland, or just curious what a couples session here could look like – I’m glad you’re here! Check out Sól and Guðjón’s couples session below and see why eloping in Iceland might just be the best decision you ever make.


You’re the kind of person that doesn’t want to regret anything.

Every moment is valuable, and you don’t want to waste time on things that don’t align with you.

Maybe this means you and your partner eloping by yourselves across the world, or maybe getting married with your closest friends and family around. Whatever it is, you’ve decided to do it because it feels right to you.

If that’s you then we’ll get along really well! I advocate for all couples to really look into what they value when deciding what path to take for their wedding day. There’s no wrong option so long as it matches you two!
