This pre-wedding for our Gorgeous Bride Catherine & Handsome Groom Hieu was just exotic in one of the most scenic country called ICELAND.
Iceland is known for its otherworldly beauty, a landscape that includes extreme contrasts, all in one melting pot. Iceland is a photographer’s dream destination.With every turn of your head, you’ll feel like taking a picture. No matter what you like to photograph; nature, animals, people, daytime, nighttime, midnight sun you’ll be sure to find your picturesque opportunities in Iceland!
To start off I still remember having a Skype chat with Catherine while I was capturing another wedding in DUBAI. She was very enthusiast about nature and wanted this one of a kind shoot in ICELAND in winter time for the month of January 2017. With countless back and forth into organizing this shoot Adnan Ansah Photography finally had the chance & privilege to showcase our Signature Fine Art through Catherine & Hieu Pre-wedding session. I was very impressed with our bride Catherine and Hieu our groom for their organizational skills once they hired us for this gorgeous shoot.
To start off the shoot on DAY 1 we went in early morning to Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Skógafoss Waterfall & then to VIK to capture some of the stunning images despite the cold and snow.
The next DAY 2 we start off for a private trip to ICECAVE & Black diamond Ice cave which was 30-40 mins away from the capital. I had to admire Catherine our bride who was so daring and bold to survive the cold winds throughout the shoot. We ended the day shoot with Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon with chunks of glacier just pouring out into the sea with the backdrop of mountains.
Day 3 started off at the Sólheimasandur Plane Crash site where a lot of history evolved around the crash site. We literally had to walk 5 KM through the sunrise and cold winds to capture this day. We ended up at HARPA for our last leg of shoot. Harpa is one of Reykjavik's greatest and distinguished landmarks. It is a cultural and social centre in the heart of the city.
Catherine & Hieu were very generous in allowing Adnan Ansah Photography to relax at Blue Lagoon Spa (Geothermal Bath) early morning of our return home to Toronto. Our Assistant Carly who was just my right hand into creating these shots was just awesome.
Below is the Album Created for our bride and groom which shows the whole tour and 3 days of shooting in ICELAND. How on earth is there a place where the sea meets with glacier and mountains covered with snow. ICELAND is the place. The pictures are selected randomly to translate the Album design and in no particular order for the shooting days. Enjoy!
