This is our first Iceland wedding. Even though this was our second trip to Iceland, we checked a lot of firsts off our list. This was our first time seeing the Northern Lights (well mine, Ryan has seen them north of Barrie before.). Our first time shooting a wedding right infront of a waterfall, we have shot at Niagara from the top of the Konica Minolta building for a wedding but its pretty far away from the falls. Our first time capturing a rainbow in a wedding photo, and being featured in Iceland news! The other time we were in Iceland was for an Iceland Honeymoon. Overall this trip is really special to us, and to our adventurous couple.
A few weeks ago we were in Southern Iceland at the beautiful Hotel Ranga getting ready to photograph this amazing wedding. Ann & Chris were married infront of Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Ann drove up in a super jeep (they are really cool). It had been raining all morning and as soon as she stepped out of the car, the clouds parted and the sun came out for a stunning wedding ceremony. All 32 guests hopped on a chartered bus for a surprise day trip to Vik black sand beach, champagne toast, photos, and then a quick stop over at Skogafoss to check out the waterfall and some Icelandic ponies.
The wedding reception was held at Hotel Ranga in the upstairs dining room which has windows in every direction, and a beautiful inlay compass on the wood floor. Everyone ate dinner and watched the sun set around us. I could write all day about this trip to Iceland, but the photos do an even better job at describing it.
Congratulations Ann & Chris! We had such an amazing trip photographing your wedding and meeting all your friends and family. We hope you love these photos just as much as we loved taking them.

Seljalandsfoss Iceland Wedding Featured
The day after this amazing Iceland wedding the staff at Hotel Ranga told us that the wedding ceremony was featured in the local newspaper. The article is mostly about the preist who married Ann & Chris and how couples from all over the world flock to Iceland to have their wedding. They even caught a picture of Ryan and I shooting.
