Iceland has become a symbol of romance. It’s raw, beautiful and elegant. Recently I had an opportunity to take photos of a wonderful, Swedish couple, Jonna & Rolle while travelling through the Snaefellsnes peninsula.
What the wedding magazines do not say is that there is a hefty price to those gorgeous photos. Chasing the light from beach to beach. Getting in and out of the car every 10 minutes, for hours. Crossing rivers. Flat tyres. Hail stones and sea salt cutting deep into the skin. Frostbite. Pain and tears, and pink cheeks smitten by freezing wind.
All discomfort aside, having your wedding or elopement photos taken there, can be the most exciting adventure and the most wonderful way to celebrate.
Taking photos of Jonna and Rolle in Snaefellsnes peninsula is an experience I will not forget. Every time I think of the white, snowy landscape in Snaefellsnes, all the storms, travelling in the back of a Land Rover Defender, I’ll think of these guys.
