I think the contrast between a dilapidated, vanishing location is very inspiring for many photographers.
On the one hand something slowly passes - on the other hand something new is emerging: a young family and everything that grows out of it. These opposites always give wedding pictures a little story.
The couple was supposed to get married outdoors, but the rain dampened their plans, so we did not have any photos of the outdoors. When they opened the dancefloor, I said to myself that I could not leave the wedding without any outdoor shot of the couple as they paid for this venue because of the scenery. It was around 55 degrees outside, and it was foggy. I had asked my assistant to ask the couple to pose about 60 meters away from me. Because they already did an engagement session with me, they already knew my verbal cues without explaining how I wanted them to pose. I placed a Speedlight behind them, and this magical photo came out straight out of the camera, and the couple ended up printing this for their wall-art.
Iceland is one of the most charismatic countries on earth. This jungle of nature, color and light is just the paradise for me as a photographer. Weddings in this country are the absolute highlight. The contrast between a bride and this grandiose landscape is just fantastic. But it was so f***cold, that the bride didn't really had fun after a hour of shooting :-)
