A Honeymoon Session In Iceland by Josef Sullivan
Destination Wedding, Elopement, and Couple Photographer
A year ago I went to scout out Iceland with Jackie. We visited the southern part, and drove the graveled roads of the highlands otherwise known as the F-roads. Our experiences there were awe inspiring to say the least, and you can see and read more of my experience from last year here and here.
This year I was able to adventure through Iceland again. This time, not only did I go with my wife Jackie, but I was able to go with Hannah and Michael whose wedding I documented two years ago come this November. A honeymoon session of sorts, but not only was I documenting their time in this other-worldly land, I was also playing a bit of a guide. Of course I had to take them back to a couple of my previous year’s scouting locations, but I also wanted to see more than I did last year. They agreed to explore with me, and be open to what may be in store. Thankfully there isn’t a place, where one sets the eye, that isn’t beautiful!
So from camping out on top of SUVs in harrowing winds our first night; discovering the wrong waterfall while trying to guide the way somewhere totally different that we didn’t find (go me!!); dealing with a leaky tire only to find that the spare was also devoid of air with no filling station within an hour away; ecstatically driving through streams; discovering an awesome overlook; driving passed glaciers; witnessing fireworks over glacier lagoons; watching ice boulders float over the ocean; keeping our balance through a mountain to behold a wonderful, enclosed waterfall, and so much in between, Iceland is still my wonderland! But beware the wonder! It’s like “Precious” from The Lord of the Rings that will beckon you to do things that you may not normally do.
It was amazing to hang out with Hannah and Michael on this trip, and be apart of each other’s memory in this chilly paradise. Above are a few of the images I captured while there. Hope you enjoyed!
If you’ve made it this far, thank you so much for your time. I hope you’ve enjoyed this love story.
Let me know your favorite part!
