Rebecca Douglas Photography is here to tell us all about her experience of shooting in Iceland. It seems to be on the bucket list for so many people to visit with the excitement of the possibility of seeing the northern lights and being awe-struck by the incredible landscapes, it is easy to see why so many couples are opting to pop the question here, remember their trip with a couples’ portrait session and for some eloping and experiencing the magic of their destination wedding there.
Iceland is such an incredible country. From the bustle of Reykjavik black sand beaches, the wonders of the Golden Circle through to the glaciers and iceberg lagoons, it is somewhere like nowhere else I have ever travelled and it has totally stolen my heart! I have been fortunate to travel here and explore for some extended periods of time as well as weaving in some photography work too.
I love getting to know couples and getting excited with them about their travel and shoot plans while they are in Iceland. Paris and Joe had an engagement shoot there in March and said I would say that the thing I loved most about the experience was Iceland itself. Everywhere you turned there was something new to see, from waterfalls to Icelandic ponies. Driving around and being surrounded by lakes and hills and then as you start to climb all you can see for miles is snow. It was one of the most breath taking places I have ever been and we were lucky enough to have a brilliant photographer capture it all for us.’
There are so many jaw-dropping scenes and such a vast change in the season’s weather between spring and summer, couples are spoilt for choice about when to travel. So many people have the bucket list item of seeing the northern lights in their minds and its best to travel between October and March to be in with a chance of seeing the skies light up at night.
On a recent trip, it was a joy for me to catch up with one of my couples who married in 2013. Daisy says “From our wedding day to our coincidental meet in Iceland, our experience with Rebecca has been truly awesome! The first time we met Rebecca we felt relaxed and like we had known her for years and when we had the shoot in Iceland that’s still exactly how we felt. 2 and a half years on from our wedding we are still in touch and hope to be for years to come, we couldn’t have chosen a better person to capture our day and just so happen to be there to book for a photo shoot on our best holiday so far too!”
With Rebecca’s extensive knowledge of travelling in Iceland and the stunning images she creates, she would be an excellent choice to take with you to capture some unforgettable memories in this beautiful country. You can find out more about her work here.
