There are many things I love about this job of mine but one of the best things about being an elopement photographer is the meeting new people and the sharing of adventures.
These two traveled from Poland for a mini vacation to Iceland. This is what I love; you get to meet and connect with folks you’d never otherwise cross paths with. So not only did we get to play and have fun by a river and waterfall outside a small town in Iceland, I got to hear all about there lives in Poland, their travels working with sled dogs and fjord horses in Norway, their bucket list places of Australia and New Zealand (which I hyped up immensely). It was such a great day not just because of the photos, but because the whole thing was *fun*. And that is legit the most important part- experience is primary. Always and forever.
The sky was a strange overcast that was still really bright, which eventually gave way to sun. I was at the tail end of my two week trip around the Ring Road, Weronika and Sylvester, jetlagged and hyped on travel, and were about to start theirs. I told them my favorite parts of Iceland and Weronika told me about a tomato greenhouse that has a menu of only tomato things which I did wind up going to. I sent her selfies with my tomato soup and she sent me pictures of glaciers.
It’s amazing how adventures and a love of travel can bond people. It’s why it’s so easy to become friends with my elopement and adventure session couples. It’s probably my favorite thing, more than the epic views (which are stellar) and the bucket list locations (which do make me cry). It’s about the people. I’m lucky meet so many fellow adventurers. I’m luckier still to call them friends.
