Norwegian + Icelander.
ÁST OG HRAUN /aust ɔːɣ r̥øyːn/ means ‘love and lava’ in Icelandic.
We are Daria (the mastermind) and Hjalti (the sidekick).
Norwegian + Icelander.
There are so many good things we could say about these two – but we will do our best to keep it short. Don’t think twice about booking these two for your next elopement or shoot! What can we say, Daria and Hjalti are just amazing! We eloped in Iceland from Australia in late March, and had the pleasure of sharing our experience with these two, and boy we are so glad we did. We trusted them with our special day and they made sure everything ran so so perfectly from start to finish. During our first call we described the vibe we wanted for our shoot and they absolutely nailed the brief. Daria scouted some amazing locations that fit in with the type of photos we wanted, and we haven’t stopped smiling since we got them back :)
Daria and Hjalti are both so kind, warm and friendly (and skilled!) and you could genuinely tell they were enjoying their work, not just doing a job. They always made us feel so comfortable to be ourselves during our shoot and the whole afternoon just felt so natural. Every part of the process made us feel like we’d made the best decision to choose them. We felt that we experienced true Icelandic hospitality, and for that we are so lucky and grateful.
Daria and Hjalti are the loveliest pair. I feel so lucky that we found them for lots of reasons. They felt like our friends and it was a pleasure to have them with us on our special day. They documented our day in the most genuine and honest way, capturing all the different emotions and atmosphere perfectly. They are so talented and the photos are absolutely incredible! Daria was so wonderful in helping with figuring out location, giving suggestions and advice. We would not have wanted anyone else.
Cannot recommend these two beautiful individuals enough! We wanted a specific style and they got exactly what we wanted and the pictures were sent through quickly. 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 🖤
Daria and Hjalti are incredibly talented and just the nicest human beings. We've known their work for quite a while and therefore expected great pictures - but we were just speechless when we saw the actual results, which went well beyond our expectations. They are professional and effective but also very attentive and create such a comfortable atmosphere with their presence, we had a great time during our shoot.
