Tyler + Dannah: Adventurous 1 Year Anniversary Session in Iceland

 

Tyler and Dannah were my first clients! They gave me the biggest compliment a photographer could ever receive when they decided to join me in Iceland for their 1 Year Anniversary! I’m still pinching myself that they flew all the way from Oklahoma to have an adventure session with me. When does that happen?! It’s still a dream! I may or may not be tearing up a bit as I write this blog post. I feel overwhelmed with love by these two.

We packed in a ton of iconic Iceland locations in one day, including Skogafoss Falls, Seljalandsfoss Falls, Sólheimasandur (the famous plane crash) and Reynifjara Black Sand Beach. You will notice the tourists in some of the locations, as August is the height of tourist season. I highly recommend going in June and July, for several reasons…you’ll have to book me to find out why! ;)

There are also a few other secret locations included that I stumbled upon. We waded through water and hiked through 2 miles of hail for some of the locations pictured. That’s what adventure sessions are all about…venturing off the beaten path! I always ask clients if they have any places that are a “must” for them, but prefer to location scout and find places no one else can find, while respecting the land and people. While social media has opened the eyes of many to travel, I still strongly believe there is something to be said for showing up and finding unique places, not on Instagram.

Every time I look at this photos, I’m ready to go back! Anyone else?

PS - I had a hard time selecting which photos to include…their gallery had 360 photos.
