This Iceland proposal was probably one of the most fun days I ever had. When Vincent contacted me with the idea about proposing to his girlfriend Michelle in Iceland, I was completely hooked. I fell in love with the country ever since I photographed the Iceland Wedding from Jasmine & Patrick, so I could not wait to go back and create something different.
I did not want to re-do all the shots that I did at the last wedding and I did not want to do the typical Iceland images. I tried to focus on the love of Michelle & Vincent combined with some laughter that really made the day special to me. We walked through the rain, climbed waterfalls and chased rainbows the entire day, from sunrise to sunset. The weather did not stop us and even though we were covered in water for a pretty long time, we just kept shooting.
Right before our Iceland Proposal, the sun peaked out a little bit and we were left with some minutes of sunshine that gave Vincent the perfect opportunity to ask Michelle the big question. I hope you all enjoy this amazing story and I cant wait to be back in Iceland.
