An Iceland wedding is, not to understate, kind of every photographer’s dream. It’s filled with dramatic overlooks, stunning little paths off the main road, places to hide away and places where you can’t do anything more than exist in nature. And it’s my challenge and joy as a photographer to find the different angles and outlooks to make the couple look as beautiful as I see them in person.
What made this shoot special was that it was an elopement in Iceland: they wanted to get married just the two of them, underneath one of the most unforgettable waterfalls in the world. So we went out to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall together, and as they were married in private I followed with my eyes. I looked and saw and got the pictures that combined their intimate love with the experience of pure isolation that is being alone in this beautiful landscape.
Then afterwards we went off to another beautiful space nearby, the black beach near Vik, and were treated to a stormy weather that played the perfect partner to their pure white dress and stark black suit. What a special atmosphere with a couple who saw the ability to get lost in nature, to let the overwhelming surroundings accompany their special day.
