Iceland Wedding Photographer // Sophia & James

April 8, 2013

You have got to have the best job in the world.


Those were Sophia’s first words when I met up with her and James at Hotel Budir on the day before their wedding.

Those were also my exact thoughts as I drove up to the north western part of Iceland from Keflavik Airport earlier that morning, cruising between glaciers and wild horses on the narrow and isolated roads of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The sun was blazing on the snow capped mountains and it was nothing less than magical.

With this experience still fresh in mind, I’m prepared to agree with Sophia. This has to be the best job in the world.

Here are a few frames from Sophia and James’ wedding day in Budir, Iceland.
