We were super excited when Anna and Zack wanted to book us for an adventurous photoshoot in Iceland. It was an absolute fairytale with the most unique landscape we’ve ever seen. Though it rained quite a bit, it made for random rainbows, enchanted hillsides, and moody meadows. We were able to take advantage of the sun the few times it snuck in front of the clouds, but part of the Icelandic charm is the somber and melancholy feels.
We found an incredible space of land whose voice was water singing in the shapes of sweeping brooks, natural water slides, and gentle waterfalls. It was a magical cove next to a hollowed out section of earth that may have once been an ancient dwelling. Anna and Zack braved the cold, swirling winds for an absolutely epic shoot! When it was time for a wardrobe change, the land provided a private cave that was a perfect reprieve from the elements as well.
The uniquely shaped blocks of ice that washed ashore upon Diamond Beach were like flashbulbs as they reflected glimmers from the sun – as if a whole gallery of photographers were there and who couldn’t help but shoot alongside us in awe of the attraction and beauty between Anna and Zack. The marvelously clear day provided a beautiful contrast to the deep black sand as we looked out into the infinite horizon with the waves splashing at our feet on the edge of forever.
Anna and Zack, you two are rockstars! Thank you for allowing us to capture your romantic getaway in Iceland. It made our hearts full to see you two in the most natural and remote landscape we’ve shot to date. Here’s to more adventures like this to come in 2019!
