Iceland Photography // Caroline & Ben

November 19, 2012

If you have followed Nordica’s site, you’ve picked up on the fact that I have an affinity for Iceland photography.

Last June, I spent a week there. Originally, the trip included one wedding and that was it. But through a bit of maneuvering and planning, the week turned into a full-on work trip. In addition to the wedding, I shot at the Blue Lagoon, went to the far north of Iceland for a crazy hike, and arranged a session with two photographer friends from the States who were looking to have an engagement session done.

Ben and Caroline are from Texas, and through an online forum Jakob and I are active in, we pieced together the logistics for this session to happen. They were in Britain for some work of their own, and after exchanging a few messages, we agreed to spend a day driving between Reykjavik and Vik.
