Kennedy and Kirk . Iceland Wedding Photography

Since visiting Iceland last year for the first time, Claire and I have seriously fallen in love with this country. It’s a vast and empty land, but if you know where to look, the emptiness has this finesse, this minimalistic beauty of a place stuck in time before us humans really screwed everything up. That’s what Iceland is to me – pure. And this purity is found in the kindness of their people, the never-ending landscapes, and thoughtful design sprinkled across the entire country.

Kennedy and Kirk wanted to adventure, to not really plan this out, and to journey across the Snæfellsnes peninsula with us in tow. After eloping in Stykkisholmur at one of the most northern tips of the world, we did just that. We adventured. Explored. Climbed. We fell (well just me, really – in a troll hole). Above all else, we had fun and were reminded of how beautiful this earth really is.

Here’s a small portion of what happened during our time together.

Many, many thanks as always to Claire Hudson for working alongside me, making travel insanely enjoyable (the week of this particular wedding, we drove 2000 miles and flew for 11 hours – and yes, it’s always worth it) and keeping me sane. Best human, ever.

Oh, my. This is beyond one of the most fantastically beautiful & inspiring elopements I have ever seen. I mean — Iceland!? What a brilliant couple to have chose, in my opinion, one of the most gorgeous places. I’m sure this will be a shoot to remember for you, am I right? :)

You captured each shot so beautiful. Simply amazing. Bookmarking this to swoon over from time to time. :) Thanks for the inspiration!

When you mix concrete, straight lines, minimalism, and a clean aesthetic with the rustic nature of the Hudson Valley you end up with one pretty amazing wedding. Everything came together perfectly for these two and Claire and I were absolutely thrilled to have been apart of this one.
