3 weeks ago I shot a real Engagement Shoot in Iceland. Danaï and Nicolas, a Belgian couple, who booked me for their wedding in August, were crazy enough to meet up with me Iceland. When I arrived on Sunday 16th, they already had a week of traveling behind them. They were a bit tired, I was super fresh and luckily I could show them a part of Iceland they didn’t visit yet.
After my 3.30PM arrival in the airport, I picked them up in Keflavik city, quickly bought my first 2 hotdogs of my holiday (many more would follow…), and off we went. I was so glad I visited the Reykjanes Peninsula, the area around Keflavik, last year already. I had a beautiful route in my mind which we could do in a late afternoon of shooting time. We drove to the beautiful lake Kleifarvatn, and passed by a small geothermal area with barely any people around. Afterwards, we drove a bit south, to continue our journey along kilometers of lava fields, to Reykjanesviti, where a geothermal area meets the sea, with magnificent cliffs full of birdlife! This place will always have a special place in my heart. I was there twice last year, and it turned out I was there twice this year as well.
And damn, were we lucky with the weather! Cause the day after, my travel partner Niccola and I would wake up in a snowstormy kind of day which we would remember for a long time. (This story will be shared later, when I publish the blogpost about our road trip).
So yes. Blue sky, mild breeze, soft sunset. Perrrrrfect!
Danaï and Nicolas enjoyed our little getaway, we could tell. And I was glad they were crazy enough to join me on this little trip. Cause every photoshoot is part of another adventure!
Do you also want an engagement shoot in Iceland? Contact me. I’ve been there twice, but my heart is not yet satisfied. I want to go back, again and again. We definitely find a way to meet up and I will guide you to some awesome locations!
