Whereee to even begin with this trip!!! Iceland is the mostttt magical, other-worldly place that I’ve ever experienced. Legit every 5 seconds I had to just compose myself over how beautiful the landscapes were and how lucky I felt just to be there to witness it. The huge waterfalls, green rolling hills, wild sheep/horses, powerful sunsets, steamy blue lagoon — it’s just tooooo much!! And our flights were under $300 each guys!! (If you’re trying to decide where to elope… I would definitely take a look at Iceland!! I’ll answer any questions you have about it too!! just pleaseeee take me back lol!!)
Katie reached out to me earlier this year and when my friends and I started talking about planning a destination photographer trip… I knew Katie and Sagar would be the perfect couple for the job!! ;)) Myself, Kelli, Serafina, Jenny, Michelle, and Erica packed our bags and boarded the longestttt flight evaaa, and woke up in ICELAND!! Our little Airbnb was adorable, our car got upgraded, and we just alllll had the best time exploring the city/sites together + coming back to the place for an editing and face mask girls night!! ;))
The first day we relaxed and settled in… then the second day was JAM packed with adventure + shooting!! First we hit the Skogafoss waterfall for sunrise, then walked the 4 miles to find the monumental airplane wreck, then off to the black sand beach with these UNREAL rocks and caves, then off to the natural arches, and back to Skogafoss to end the day at sunset (and get wet this time now that we didn’t have to worry about hair/makeup lol)!! The third day we relaxed around town, got some coffee (fun fact: that’s Iceland’s national drink and they make a meaaaaan vanilla latte!!), and finished off our trip with a relaxing soak sesh at the Blue Lagoon steam pools!!
Everything about Iceland seriously made it suuuuch an amazing trip + I can’t wait to adventure more with my couples!! Thank you Sweet Caroline Styles for letting us use a dress and Hannah Hartmann Hair for braiding Katie’s pretty locks!! (check out more behind the scenes on my instagram story called “Iceland”!!) xo
