Iceland – elopement bridal inspiration

Hello from ICELAND! What an other-worldly land this place is! We traveled to Iceland as the wedding photographers for a wonderful destination wedding at Hotel Budir, but I will share more about that beautiful celebration in another post. I feel it is important to take full advantage of the time spent in new places, so I always try to make a little time for a creative collaboration when ever possible. The photographs below were captured during an epic adventure with one of our favorite models, Oda. We originally met Oda last year in Nice, France, as she was one of the beautiful models for our first photography workshop with Norwegian Wedding Magazine. Fortunately, she lives in Oslo now, and that is just a plane hop away from Reykjavik, Iceland. Most of these images were taken while exploring the southern region of Iceland. These creative opportunities really refresh a travel photographer’s energy and inspiration. We are looking forward to working with Oda again in Norway later this month!
