“We couldn’t for the life of us guess who designed your wedding dress but we can tell you it’s going to rain in about ten minutes.”
Having lived in Iceland our whole lives means that we are not used to luxury. Fancy villas, castles and grand dining halls don’t exist here. We are however used to breathing in the fresh air of the mountains, standing out in the pouring rain for hours on end and treading carefully across lava fields. We couldn’t for the life of us guess who designed your wedding dress but we can tell you it’s going to rain in about ten minutes. We have long since given up on perfect hairdos and accepted the honest beauty of windswept hair and messy looks.
We’ve been shooting weddings for years and doing photography for even longer. And all this experience has thought us to appreciate the beauty of simplicity. And wedding photography to us in it’s simplest form is about human connection. Getting to know people and capture this brief but significant moment in their lives for them and their loved ones to remember for years to come. To let the honest, true life moments, emotions and conditions shine through rather than fancy techniques, elaborate posing or stylised settings.
