Camille & Drew – From San Francisco To Reykjavik
I have always wanted to add an Iceland Wedding to my portfolio and when I have the chance to combine photography alongside new landscapes it’ s like a dream come true. I had the privilege of going this past August to photograph Camille & Drew’s wedding. Both are from San Francisco so this was truly a Iceland Destination Wedding for them and their quests. Drew is a professional photographer so, naturally, documenting his wedding was a big honour. We started the morning at Borg Hotel in Reykjavik situated right next to the Icelandic Parliament. Camille has chosen an unconventional attire with a white blouse and authentic furry boots, perfect for this Icelandic landscape. Her sister did the makeup and had the opportunity to first see her as a bride. The bride and the groom had their first look in the hotel lobby, nothing was planned, I really liked that.
The Religious Ceremony Took Place On Videy Island
After the guest reunited in the Borg Hotel lobby, they took a ferry ride to Videy, the largest island of the Kollafjordur Bay in Iceland, near the capital. The couple said their “I do” at Videy, in a vintage 18th century church. They had a small, intimate wedding alongside family and friends. We chose the rocky shore of the island for their portraits and the guests continued socialising at the Videy House / Reykjavik City Museum. Therefore, take a look at these images and enjoy at what the Icelandic landscape has to offer!
Images from the wedding, together with their story, are featured on the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle.
