Iceland Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Iceland wedding photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.

Many couples have recently discovered that less is more when it comes to wedding planning in Iceland, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. These intimate events allow brides and grooms to be fully present, as they are less worried and intimidated about the sheer size and scope of the day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Iceland elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA Iceland photographer who specializes in elopements and who understands the unique dynamic of this type of event. The right photographer will capture the events of the day, the atmosphere of the event and the most important details.

The WPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Iceland documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Iceland WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Raishel & Matthew

Photo by Juliana Wiklund

Dear Juilana. I love your work because your work is alive! Not only do your pictures tell a story but they speak.You capture more than a pose, but also a moment, a spirit, an energy and a mood in each still shot. In fact, its hard to call you photos "still" even though pictures are stationary inanimate objects. However, your photography has life; I can see the people breathing, hear them laughing or crying or sighing. I loved the emotion in your pictures. Juliana, you can transmute a photo into a life, a picture into a biography. You added joy to my wedding! I booked you based on your talent, I fell in love with you based on your personality. Being photographed by you was the absolute highlight of my day. You are so warm, positive, friendly and familiar. It was a pleasure having you as a guest at my wedding, because you felt like a friend/family member. You seamlessly slipped into my heart and the hearts of all my guests. You felt like a part of us, so we were able to be totally open, natural, and true. And now each time I look at my photos I feel happy and joyful. I am so appreciative to you for preserving my day. Thanks to you I can relive my wedding day, any day. Thanks to the warmth you brought to my wedding, my day was even more magical and my joy was magnified. To other brides, I know that having a destination wedding is expensive and flying in and sheltering a photographer can seem extravagant. But Juliana is affordable, amenable, and worth the investment. When the food is eaten, the flowers dead, the music stopped, the night will never end. It will be alive and continue in her photographs into posterity. Gratefully, Raishel

Doug you did the most FANTASTIC job! The photos are all so beautiful I can't even make a favorites list because they're all so great. I confess that I even teared up looking at them it was such a happy day and you captured everything. We're so grateful for all your efforts, we really can't imagine having had a different photographer there to share our day with us. Thank you so so much!

Dear Doug, Thank you so much for sending these images, and for the images themselves which are outstanding. We love so many of them, the hard part is going to be selecting the ones that go in the album! We'll have more time to look and select over the weekend, so we'll probably write to you then or early next week. Again, many thanks for your work -- we are very impressed :) Best, Josh & Kiley
