I often wonder why people go to Iceland, whether it is to travel, get married, renew the vows or just to take a trip around the island. Iceland is, of course, an extremely unique place. There isn’t a better place for those who wish to have some privacy, fresh air, clean water, and experience some untouched and wild nature. This makes it also a perfect place for wedding- nature- engagement session or any other photography out there. Iceland is a dream for wedding photographers and for those would like to get married there.
As soon as you step out of the airport you might be greeted by some northern lights and you will most definitely feel the crisp and clean air, which I personally remember since my very first trip several years ago. Kit and Ryan came to Iceland from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They knew, having already been there, that they wish to have their engagement pictures taken in Iceland and, who knows, perhaps one day to get married in the midst of Iceland’s wild nature and volcanoes. Our journey, including my cameras, and a wonderful videoman Ma, lasted for two days along South Iceland. We travelled from Reykjavik to Vik, a bit towards the inland and then back. Two days is enough to see a lot of South Iceland and to gather unforgettable memories that one will always remember. You can also see plenty in one single day, however it is definitely better to plan a trip to south for at least two days, ideally even longer.
We already woke up at dawn to travel by the sea and through mountains, experience the uncommon wind lull while it snowed in Vik, to ride Iceland’s horses and end our journey in a natural pool in the mountains. I am very happy I met this couple because of the four fantastic and unforgettable days we spent together which we will remember forever.
