NON-TRADITIONAL WEDDING DRESS IN ICELAND // ICELAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | ZAKAS PHOTOGRAPHY
Thinking of wearing a nontraditional wedding dress?? DO IT. When I was in Iceland last week, I got to take Iceland wedding photos for this hilarious, adorable couple, Liv and Benny. She is from Norway, he is from Iceland, and their wedding is going to be in Norway next year.
Since they live in Iceland they wanted some photos of them celebrating their love in their home. When I arrived at their house I was a bit worried because Iceland was doing what it does best: show up with unpredictable weather. I shouldn't say unpredictable, because it's pretty predictable that it will be unpredictable. It was literally raining sideways and the fog was as thick as corn bread. We decided that hey, this is Iceland. This is what life is like here. So it will only add to the authenticity of the shoot. We drove for a little bit away from their house to our location, which looks like another planet and is one of the main things I love about Iceland with all of it's lava. After pumping each other up in the car we got out of the car and started shooting. The rain and wind was pretty intense, any ounce of hair and makeup was ruined, but I love that. Part of the time I couldn't even see what I was shooting because the rain was sideways and into my eyeballs and lens. We had an amazing time, cracking jokes and trying not to slide to our deaths. Their love (and her AMAZING pink wedding dress)out powered the storm.
