A year ago this time, we traveled to Iceland and had the pleasure of photographing this Icelandic wedding inspiration shoot just outside of Reykjavik with a talented team of creatives. Being that the weather outside is equally frigid this week, we felt it was the perfect time to share some of our favorite images from the shoot! We hoped to capture Iceland’s beauty yet tempestuous nature in this shoot, and we were so inspired by incredible emerald moss, rugged landscapes and icy blue tones on the island.
We chose to use a grand backdrop of impressive wide landscape, just a short drive from the country’s capital. Our Reykjavik-native model Hjordis braved the elements in an embellished mesh dress with layered tulle skirt, and intricate sequin beading by Needle & Thread. The stunning lavender, peach and eucalyptus bouquet by Bloma Nattura, contained subtle references to Iceland’s autonomous spirit, featuring an asymmetrical design and a variety of wild greens and gentle blooms. The elegant paper design by Emily Kathryn, featuring an intricate custom typeface and swash strokes for days, complemented our desired look to perfection.
