Kim & Daniel - Destination Wedding Photography in Iceland: A Mesmerizing Journey
As a destination wedding photographer, I eagerly anticipate capturing cherished moments in captivating locations. When the opportunity to photograph a wedding in Iceland arose, I couldn't wait to immerse myself in the astonishing landscapes and natural wonders of this extraordinary country.
Capturing the Enchantment of a Volcano: Fagradalsfjall
My journey began with a visit to the active volcano Fagradalsfjall. Though the volcano was in a resting phase when I arrived, the views of dried lava and the surrounding landscape were still breathtaking and provided a stunning backdrop for my photos.
A Spectacular Setting for a Photo Session: Kleifarvatn
The following day, I had the pleasure of working with a beautiful Icelandic couple, Kim and Daniel, for a photo session at Lake Kleifarvatn. The dark sand, black rock, and narrow road created a truly otherworldly atmosphere, and Kim's gown by Ellen Marie Bridal added a touch of elegance to the photos.
The Beauty of Iceland's Natural Wonders: Krisuvik and Gunnuhver Hot Springs
We also ventured to the geothermal springs of Krisuvik and Gunnuhver, where the colorful soil and blue waters provided a stunning contrast against the harsh terrain. We even had the opportunity to include some friendly horses in the photos.
The Final Touches: Cliffs and Rocks at Rykjanes
For our final shots at golden hour, we drove to Rykjanes, where the cliffs and rocks provided a dramatic and rugged setting. The wind blew through Kim's hair as we captured the final shots of the day.
Iceland: A Photographic Paradise
Overall, my experience as a destination wedding photographer in Iceland was truly unforgettable. From the otherworldly landscapes to the friendly locals, Iceland is a place like no other and I would highly recommend it to any couple planning a destination wedding. Thank you to Kim and Daniel and the team at Way Up North for making this trip such a magical experience.
Iceland cracked my mind!
