Faith & Allan | Iceland Destination Wedding
I met Allan and Faith a couple years ago in Iceland. I was touring around for my birthday and wanted to photograph the beautiful country. I found out REALLY quickly that I just can’t photograph landscapes without people in them, I just love people! So I quickly posted I was there and booked a surprise proposal shoot! Allan, proposed to Faith under the Skogafoss waterfall on a windy, cold and very wet March night. It was beautiful. We went our separate ways as they were from Florida and we kept in touch on facebook. Months later I got the message that I HAD TO PHOTOGRAPH their wedding they were planning. Uhm, hell ya guys!! They were planning their wedding in Iceland with their small group of family coming along for the trip. Heather from Blush Artistry and I packed up all our stuff and headed for Iceland this last October for the wedding.
The wedding day was so calm. Both Allan and Faith were insanely easy to work with. We had an amazing team of cinematographers along side us as well and they filmed some really gorgeous clips for these two. Thank you Viktor for being so easy to work with, you are very talented!
We planned the day like a roadtrip, we wanted to get all the good spots for photos. Allan and Faith’s description of what they wanted for photos was “Put us in POSTCARDS Sof!”. So this was my main goal for the roadtrip. They were married in the famous Budir Black Church up in the west fjords with all their family with us and a very beautiful Icelandic wedding ceremony with traditional singing from the priest.
Some words from the couple: “Sofia’s work speaks for itself. Her photos are in a league of their own! Not only did she make us feel super comfortable but she was so much fun to work with (her laugh is literally the greatest)!” -Faith
“Sofia is basically family now (like it or not lol), she’s shared our most important and meaningful days with us!” “My Florida blood could hardly stand the cold and windchill but Sofia wasn’t kidding when she reassured us these photos would totally be worth it!” -Allan (Oh these two FROZE that day you guys hahaha!)
Allan and Faith, thank you for trusting me with the wedding day plan and for bringing me all the way to Iceland for your wedding. I won’t ever forget that trip or you two! xo Sof.
