Iceland Wedding Photography // Annika & Doug

We’ve put brides and grooms in a lot of odd spots for portraits.

Allies that smelled like they had dead bodies laying around, precarious cliffs with unsure footing, beside glaciers, the middle of deserts, fields full of animals, a pot field, and on and on. When we took Annika and Doug away for their portraits at 1AM during a rainstorm in Iceland, that situation really took the cake.

Their wedding was at HOTEL BUDIR, Iceland, located in the western region on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. It’s a very isolated place about two hours north of Reykjavik. To have a destination wedding in Iceland is very rare as it is, but adding this location to the story made this wedding that much more unique.

Once we were finished their portraits, around 2AM or so, it was back to the party, and at around 5AM we asked if we could go out for one more round of portraits. We had to leave at 5.30AM and fly home that morning, but we wanted to squeeze as much as we could out of the wedding.

Annika and Doug were all in, so we did some more portraits. The light at 5AM is much better than 1AM, apparently.

All in all, we photographed non-stop for about 16 hours. If it would have been 30 hours, we would have had no problems.

We didn’t want it to end.
