Beautiful Iceland – Part I

In late May and early June of 2017, my husband and I took a adventurous trip to the beautiful country of Iceland. We had planned the trip for about a year, and knew we wanted to have an authentic experience and view of the country. So, after some research and help from a friend, we took a self-guided driving trip around the ring road, which runs around the island and connects most of the populated parts of the country. Our trip was clockwise around the road, starting in the capital city of Reyjavik. Along the way, we stayed in bed and breakfast hotels owned and managed by local farmers. In between our destinations, we took side trips and many roads less traveled, which offered breathtaking scenery and many beautiful surprises. We have been home for nearly a month now, and I’m still editing. So, I’ll be posting more images as I complete them. This collection is from the first 5-6 days of our journey, from the time we were outside of Reyjavik, proceeding west to the towns of Borgarnes, Snaefellsbaer, northwest to Hvammstangi, and then north to Akureyri, and a farm just outside of Husavik. There were many stops and towns in between, which I will identify later, based on each image that is printed. Any of these image and others on my website or Facebook photography page are available for sale and can be custom sized. Contact me for pricing or to place an order. Enjoy beautiful Iceland and watch for subsequent posts.

Sheryl McLain - Congratulations! What a lovely church in a beautiful setting. And, I’m so flattered that you asked. Unfortunately, I live in the USA so won’t be in Iceland. We were there for two weeks for a photo trip and vacation around the ring road this past May/June. I wish you much happiness! You might try the travel company we worked with to see if they might have a suggestion for local photographers. #heyiceland was the name and they were very accommodating. I also just searched on Instagram and found a photo company based in Iceland that shoots weddings and couples in beautiful settings: They look good. So, if they can’t perhaps they’ll have a suggestion. Best wishes. I hope this helps.

Alan hicks - Hello.

My fiancé and I are getting married July 9, 2018 at the black church of Buðir, in Iceland. The wedding is at 12pm. This will be a very small wedding with only 10 people.

We are looking for a photographer that can take photos before, during, and after the ceremony at the church. Also, we would also like to take photos after the wedding at the Gatklettur – Arch Rock and of the stunning coastline.

Please let us know of your availability and photography packages/cost.


Alan and Maria Jose
