A Moody Couple Photoshoot
in the South of Iceland

One of the questions we get asked fairly often is what happens if it rains. Short answer – embrace it and have fun! To elaborate, a bit of rain has never hurt anyone, and you can be sure it will add a magic touch to your session. Will you get wet? Yes, probably. Should you take an umbrella? We got you covered – there’s a spare one in the trunk of our car for such occasions. However, whether it may prove useful or not is a totally different story!


John and Lauren came to Iceland for the very first time, and as luck had it, the weather was not on our side. Early September is usually quite mild, but we were greeted with the year’s first storm, and had to postpone our session. The rain decided to stay, and not having much choice, we ventured outside, armed with an umbrella and some extra clothes. I always worry about our couples, especially those visiting from the southern countries and being used to warmer temperatures, but John and Lauren were not daunted at all, and enjoyed our adventure to the fullest, even though they ended up soaking wet in the end.

We started our journey in the green mountainous area of Þakgil, continued our way to Vikufjara and concluded the session at the famous black sand beach Reynisfjara.
