Destination Engagement Photography in Iceland

Iceland pre wedding winter engagement photography

Iceland is one of my favourite locations in the world and so it worked out perfectly when I was able to fly out to Reykjavik in Iceland to meet up with Alex and Emma for their winter engagement shoot.

Despite the extremely poor weather conditions, visibility and wind we were still able to visit a few of my favourite locations close to Reykjavik to get some images in some great spots including Skogafoss Waterfall, Seljalandsfoss waterfall and a few other spots along the way. 

Emma is a talented artist and has a keen interest in animal art and so it was great that we stumbled on some rather wild but tame Icelandic horses. Keen photographers themselves we were able to build in some time for photographs of the horses and waterfalls and it was lovely to see them sharing photography so passionate with each other.

We were even more fortunate that the weather cleared up dramatically and we were treated to a beautiful sunset as the shoot come to an end.

Looking forward to capturing this amazing couples wedding later this year. Here are a few images from this destination engagement shoot in Iceland.

Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon Pre Wedding Photography in Iceland

Pre Wedding Engagement Photography in Jokulsarlon Iceland

After the amazing first day of pre wedding photography in Iceland with Randy and Corene there was still lots to explore so we drove over 600km on the second day to visit the amazing Ice Lagoon at Jokulsarlon and it was definitely worth the long journey.

I have photographed weddings in Iceland before and at Jokulsarlon but it never fails to blow me away. This is one of the most amazing natural wonders in Iceland and was formed when the Vatnajokull glacier started to retreat and giant icebergs began to fall off into the remaining lagoon.

The journey to the Jokulsarlon ice lagoon may have been a long one but it is definitely not dull and there are plenty of amazing locations that we stopped off at to take photographs. Iceland is one of those places where it is best to give yourself much longer that you think you need as there is always an amazing backdrop for lots of pre wedding photographs.

Here are some of the images from day 2 of this Iceland pre wedding photography session.

Pre Wedding Photography in Iceland

South Iceland Pre Wedding Photography | Day 1

Iceland is one of the most amazing locations in the world for a pre wedding photography shoot and so when Corene and Randy contacted me about a three day engagement session in Iceland I was very excited.

Three days may seem like a long time for a pre wedding photography session but when you are in a location as remote as Iceland you really do need as much time as possible to explore this amazing island. On the first day we drove the 350km along southern Iceland to Seljavellir stopping at the amazing Seljalandsfoss and Gljufrabui Waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is a unique waterfall near to Skoga and is one of the few waterfalls that you can actually get behind. Corene and Randy braved the cold spray of the waterfall and we had so much fun getting some amazing photographs.

Here are a few images from day 1 of this stunning pre wedding photography session in Iceland. Feel free to check out day 2 of this Iceland engagement session.
