How to have an adventurous prewedding shoot in Iceland? There are a thousand answers to this – cause that place is gorgeous.
Iceland is interesting. It’s the kind of place that can recharge your soul. It’s like it’s been put there to remind us of why we need to fight to maintain our environment. It’s stunning… But only when you get off the beaten path. If you don’t, it’s like an amusement park, high prices, cues for days and people in yellow Instagram rain jackets everywhere you look.
That’s why for Jaismine and Gurpreen’s prewedding adventure shoot we started our day in the middle of the night, leaving for the wilderness well before a crazy early sunrise. We needed to make sure we could avoid the tide of yellow jackets and selfie sticks long enough to admire the incredible work nature has done with this tiny island nation.
We were out to have some fun! Jaismine and Gurpreen had changed their travel dates to match ours when they heard we were coming to Iceland, so we were super pumped and full of coffee to make sure we could give them an adventure the would never forget. We began their day at Seljalandsfoss, one of our favourite waterfalls ever! We were the only souls there as the sun rose over the plains before us. It was such a magical experience having this stunning place all to our selves in the fresh morning air that we didn’t want to leave, but we had to make a beeline for our next spot to beat the crowds once more.
Reynisfjara beach was our second spot and the last one on the beaten path for the day. The beach was gorgeous with its enormous basalt columns keeping vigil out over the rough water, and Jasimine and Gupreen holding hands and soaking in every new vista together. We were ecstatic as we left the carpark just as rows of campervans began to file in. The rest of the day was going to be epic as we headed inland and away from the crowds!
