Iceland Wedding Photographer // Bliss & Mike

One of our favourite things about our job as photographers is that we get to travel all over Iceland on various shoots. A lot of the time we tend to visit the same locations since a lot of our clients have seen some of the more famous landmarks of Iceland on Instagram or Pinterest and want to include them in their photoshoots. But looking at these places with fresh eyes prevents us from taking them for granted and it's a fun challenge for us to shoot the same location in a different way each time. 

But once in a while we get clients that are up for anything and are willing to follow us into the unknown. Then we get the chance to explore off the beaten track locations and even locations we haven't explored before with our couples. These shoots always fill us with renewed inspiration and create a good dynamic within the shoot since we are all filled with the same sense of adventure. 

Last fall we had one of these shoots at the edge of the highlands in south Iceland. We hit two locations both of which we at been to before but never really explored. A small rift valley called Gjáin that was filled with the most amazing fall colors from all the plants growing along the small streams that cascade down the valley. And the other location was one of Iceland's highest waterfalls that we had seen from afar but never ventured up close to. It's awe inspiring to say the least. Exploring these places in the great company of Bliss & Mike made this whole experience so much fun and memorable to say the least.

Iceland Wedding Photographer // Alexis & Mark

A&M-blogg-023.jpg

We are often asked what our favourite place in Iceland is and for the past few years the answer has always been the same: the West Fjords. It's hard to put into words why, but this pretty remote and funny looking peninsula that juts out of north west Iceland has a special kind of draw. The landscapes there are totally different from anywhere else in Iceland, mountains with flat, cloud covered tops and slopes that reach down all the way to the sea, creating some of the gnarliest and vertigo inducing roads Iceland has to offer. Mix this crazy landscape with all the history and culture that follows this place and you start to believe all the crazy folklore about elves, hidden people, ghosts and monsters. 

At the bottom of a very large fjord in the West fjords a river falls down the side of a mountain and forms a series of waterfalls the largest of them called Dynjandi is 100m (328ft) high and is pretty awe inspiring to look at. Every time we've been there we've talked about how cool it would be to shoot a couple session right there. But the location is pretty remote so we didn't get our hopes up that it would ever happen. But then as we were planning a short trip up there this summer Alexis contacted us. And when she told us that she was coming for her second visit to Iceland mostly to get the opportunity to pet a fox we knew she would be a perfect candidate for an adventurous shoot like this. And as luck would have it she was traveling there at the same time we were. Needless to say Dynjandi did not disappoint and not only did we get some great images but Alexis and Mark where a blast to hang out with for a day.
