As a wedding photographer, Iceland has been on my bucket list of places to travel for a long, long time. My spouse Bobby and I planned a 10 day trip along the Southern Coast and I'm still over the moon that I got to photograph Jennifer & Tyler's engagement session while we were there! We spent the eight days we had to ourselves seeing as much as possible along the Golden Circle and Southern Coast.


We enjoyed getting to visit all those high traffic tourist locations like Geysir, Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss, and Reynisfjara because they are obviously stunning...but boy did those crowds get to me. The places that ended up really staying with me were the ones that allowed us to experience the landscape more privately and the ones that made us feel like we discovered something new.

One of my favorite experiences while we were there combined both of those things. We had plans to go on a specific trail, not realizing it was down an f-road. Since we didn't have a 4x4 vehicle, we pulled over at the next hike we saw instead. We walked down a gorgeous ravine, full of rowan trees, moss, & ferns, and found ourselves climbing up a couple small waterfalls with the help of ropes. It was magical enough finding this waterfall at the end of the hike, but being able to enjoy the whole experience completely alone made it incredible. I didn't take a ton of photos during this hike, but we set up the tripod once we made it to the final waterfall and got this image of the two of us snuggling and watching the falls. We ended up climbing up on top of the cliffs around the ravine, up to the mountain ridge, and then along it until we reached another waterfall and ravine. We spent four hours exploring and only ran into one other couple for a few minutes. We even made it back to the car before the storm rolled in.

I can say without a doubt that Iceland lives up to all the hype and more. It was one of the most beautiful landscapes I've ever experienced - it's right up there with Peru for me. If you are planning a trip of your own, please familiarize yourself with what you need to know before visiting the country as well as Leave No Trace guidelines for visiting anywhere. Specifically, in Iceland, you've got to be careful not to step on the moss since it can take decades or longer to regrow. With strong ocean currents, thirty active volcanoes, huge waterfalls, glacier lagoons, and geothermic hot springs you also need to make sure you are behaving in a way that protects yourself as well as the landscape. 

China Trip // Exploring Guangzhou // Travel Photographer // Sarah Katherine Davis Photography

Traveling to Guangzhou, China to help my sister bring home my new niece was one of the most surreal, amazing experiences I've had. My niece adored exploring and walking around the city, so we were lucky enough to be able to visit several gorgeous parks, climb a mountain, see some temples, and even spent a day at a safari park. If you're looking to see more travel photographs, then my recent Iceland trip or last year's Peru trip would be the way to go. Just as a reminder, I’m always looking for an excuse to travel, so if you are planning a destination wedding or adventurous elopement I would LOVE to be part of it.

Peru Adventure // Sacred Valley // Travel Photographer // Sarah Katherine Davis Photography

Once or twice a year I like to take a pause from weddings and elopements to share some images from my personal travels! This February I was lucky enough to explore Peru with Sara Pitt— my longtime friend, a wildly talented web-developer, and the reigning queen of the best post-tinder date reporting. 

If you know me you might have noticed I'm a little bit of a planner when it comes to just about everything, so when it's time to travel I have to actively and intentionally plan to allow for spontaneity and general adventuring. It's a little backward, I know, but hear me out. I stay stress-free by booking all my transportation & accommodations ahead of time, then I choose one (and only one) activity for each day. Usually, I'll go with something like a hike or a museum visit and then I'll explore the surrounding area. This satisfies the "let's make an itinerary!" side of me but lets me relax and take things as they come as well. If you are a type-a person who strives to be more chill I cannot recommend this process more.

In the past, I've always traveled with my full photography gear, but this time I decided I wanted to focus more on the experience and less on taking pictures. I only packed my tiny Olympus OM-D, which was awesome since it fits in my waist bag. Admittedly there were a few times where I missed having a professional camera with me— a few shots ended up a little softer than I would have liked and other times the little thing couldn't focus quick enough— but overall I was pretty happy with my decision. My back and shoulders straight up celebrated my decision.

We met so many amazing people from all over the world, had tons of adventures, had some (now hilarious, but not so hilarious in the moment) misadventures, danced the night away with our Airbnb hosts for Carnevale, climbed more stairs than I can count, defeated scorpions and altitude sickness and sunburns, ate the most amazing food, and climbed some more stairs. Did I mention we climbed a lot of stairs? 

Here are the spots we visited in chronological order: Lima > Cusco > Ollantaytambo > Aguas Calientes > Machhu Pichuu > Ollantaytambo > Salinas de Maras > Moray > Chincheros > Cusco > Lima

If you are visiting Peru I LOVED the Airbnbs we stayed in in Cusco and Ollantaytambo. If you haven't used Airbnb here is a $40 travel credit. 

Need more travel photography? Japan and Joshua Tree are gorgeous.
