E+E Photography in Iceland

In May of this year Ethan and I had the last minute chance to travel to Iceland. We found a great deal on tickets and had a fee weekend with no wedding to shoot, so we jumped on the opportunity and we’re so happy we did! Since the trip was so last minute it has to be done on the smallest budget possible, so the easiest way to make that happen was to camp in our tent and cook our own food during our entire stay in Iceland. To some that may not sound like a good time, but it was one of our best travel experiences by far. Even if it was a little chilly some nights and we had to set up our tent in the rain more than once haha. During our trip we drove the entire ring road, which is the Route 1 highway that goes all the way around the island. In total it is 1,332 kilometers (828 mi) long. One of our favorite stops along the way was the glacier lagoon (Jökulsárlón). Seeing the incredible blue color of the icebergs and watching them float out to sea was pretty memorizing. Another highlight of the trip was all of the beautiful Icelandic horses. They were everywhere and always so friendly and at times even cuddly. As you will see from later down in this post, I took way to many photos of the horses but have no regrets! The last night of our trip we camped inside a cave on the beach of a lake that we had stumbled across on our first day in Iceland. Having some protection from the rain and having all of this nature to ourselves was one of our favorite travel memories. If you are even considering traveling to Iceland, don’t hesitate any longer! It will be one of the best experiences of your life.
